Exhibit highlights the woman behind the man behind the lens

Edward Weston was undeniably one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. But perhaps no one was more crucial in the development of his style than his lover, collaborator and fellow photographer Margrethe Mather.

Weston had relationships with other celebrities of the art world as well; his friendships with Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were documented in a collection of journal entries and photographs entitled "Mexico." In fact, portraits Weston took of Kahlo became part of the visual inspiration for the film "Frida." [Read article]

Bled: More lyrics and melodies, less scream

The Bled
Pass The Flask
(Fiddler Records)
Sounds Like: Hardcore you can hum to
See Also: Atreyu

Hardcore music could strip the paint off of walls. If it could be liquified and bottled, it could also clean your car's engine. It's like the Everclear 151 of rock ╬n' roll.

Tucson's The Bled sound righteously pissed off at: Ownership ("We Are The Industry"), a father ("Get Up You Son Of A Bitch, Cause Mickey Loves Ya") and girl troubles (the rest of the album.) [Read article]

╬Tiger Bay' kicks off free film series at Modern Languages

Tomorrow night will mark the beginning of the season for the International Arts Society's fall film series for 2003. The group, fifty years old this year, will bring an internationally diverse and thematically varied sampling of classic and foreign films to the Modern Languages Auditorium, Friday nights at 7:30 p.m. Showings are open to the public, and free of charge to all. Most of the films are relatively unheard of, unless, maybe, you're a big cinema buff or film student. That doesn't mean these films won't be entertaining. It just means most of us don't know anything about other cultures, or their classic films, or our own for that matter, and that's okay, as long as we work to alleviate this void in our lives. Let us start tomorrow night with "Tiger Bay," the first film in the series. [Read article]

photo ╬Camp' deserves mild applause

Summer camp movies are one of the great traditions in cinema. The genre deserves a place right up there with movies about manic depressive piano players, troubled geniuses, couples in New York City and nerdy girls who are made over to become prom queen.

But how does "Camp" stack up against others recent films in the tradition, like "Wet Hot American Summer," and "But I'm a Cheerleader?" Can it even be mentioned in the same breath as "Meatballs" or "Ernest Goes to Camp?" In three words: Yeah, pretty much. The genre never set itself up to particularly high standards, and "Camp" benefits from this. [Read article]

photo Promising fall films hit theatres

Tarantino splits film into two, Macaulay Culkin returns to big screen

Gone are the summer blockbusters. And the Oscar contenders are looming on shelves, bundled away until winter.

This is why the fall movie season doesn't always bring out the best from movie studios. Take caution: Last fall brought us Rob Schneider's masterpiece, "The Hot Chick" and the thrilling action flick about snowboarding crime fighters, "Extreme Ops." [Read article]

Former UA students to ╬bleed' music on Old Pueblo

╬Hardcore' band The Bled stops in Tucson on nationwide tour

Note to all local musicians: Keep passing out those demos.

It worked for local Tucsonans and on-again, off-again UA students The Bled.

As the story goes, one of the heads of Fiddler Records, which is home to Dashboard Confessional and New Found Glory, was on tour with punk band Midtown. Somehow a member of Midtown had gotten their hands on The Bled's demo and really liked it. However, after hearing the demo played a few times by the Midtown-er, the Fiddler honcho stole it from the band member and ended up signing the band. [Read article]

Bored? We got you covered

I'll be honest with you. I'm not completely happy to be in Tucson right now. In fact, I sort of wish I wasn't here.

You see, I spent the entire summer in New York City, where I did a couple of internships and explored the job market that I'll be entering all too soon. Most importantly, I drank a lot, danced a lot, tried to stay awake on the subway, made lots of wonderful friends (plus one or two enemies), and enjoyed myself immensely. [Read article]
