Dragging It Out 

Wednesday, Sep 10 2008
Filmmaker Tore Dahlin says he " ... wanted to make a movie as diverse as California." That's a damn tall order, but the result, Corky's Hot Ice, looks like it may actually have succeeded: Filipino goofballs, an Israeli Eurovision Song Contest winner, the town of Guerneville, a drag performer named Fierce Flava, assorted cops, and a diamond necklace are all featured. The plot concerns the necklace (stolen) and the people who want to find it (diverse); comedy ensues. Big dance numbers by the performers of Asia SF fit in there somewhere, and our favorite local drag performer, Steven LeMay, plays the titular criminal, Corky Hotpoint.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
