Finding the fun in painting

Sam Jablon’s featureless faces come from a happy place

By Adam Perry
"Brooklyn is a whole different world," Jablon said in a phone conversation from Binghamton just after Christmas. "When I started out at Naropa it was really warm and welcoming and it was easy to set up a life and make friends and meet people. Brooklyn is hard and cold and there's 100,000 people trying to do the exact same thing that you're doing."

Don't worry, you're not an Ophiuchus

By Rob Brezsny
In light of the recent news reports that the sun was now passing through 13 constellations instead of 12, therefore shifting the entire zodiac and the astrological signs of many, we here at Boulder Weekly reached out to our resident astrologer, Rob Brezsny, and asked his opinion.

The joy of circus

Cirque du Soleil’s "Alegrķa" comes to 1stBank Center

By David Accomazzo
Cirque du Soleil is a curious success story in the entertainment business, one that started in Quebec in the early '80s and grew into an international success of epic proportions, propelling the once-maligned circus arts into the same prominent spotlight shared by the world's most famous musical, cinematic and theatrical stars.

A million pictures worth countless words

Photographer Peggy Dyer’s portraits capture the spontaneity of strangers

By Marisa Aragón Ware
"I'd heard this song a thousand times, but when I heard him sing, 'I've seen a million faces and I rocked them all,' this magnificent idea just sort of downloaded into my brain," Dyer says. "I saw these giant collages up on the walls of the Getty and I could just hear my shoes clicking down the marble floors of the museum."

Fable III is a classic hero story with a twist

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
The Fable series is a fun one. Created by Peter Molyneaux and the folks at his Lionhead Studios, the stories of the game are the classic hero-type. You start off as an impoverished character just trying to survive until you’re called upon to save the world (or village or town or kingdom, etc.). The Fable games were always backed with a great story and a bunch of ways to customize and mold your character, affecting the environment around you.

Music on canvas

Live-painter Jason García makes art in the moment

By Marisa Aragón Ware
While these days it's a common sight to see an artist onstage with a band, back when Garcia started, the concept was virgin and unexplored. When he was first approached by a San Francisco band in 1998 to paint onstage, he had never heard of anyone doing such a thing.

Performance soul in black and white

Lisa Siciliano’s rock photography on display at annual extravaganza

By Marisa Aragón Ware
"I always felt like this completely creative person that had no outlet," Siciliano says. "I had never even thought of taking photos before. It definitely wasn't my childhood dream; I had never taken a class. It just happened and it changed everything."

Call of Duty: Black Ops rivals any Hollywood blockbuster

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
When the drama between Activision and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward began to unfold this summer, hardcore fans worried about the future of the Call of Duty franchise. Despite the fact that developer Treyarch has been creating Call of Duty games in Infinity Ward’s off years (they developed Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World At War), the ousting of Infinity Ward’s leaders and a possible dissolution of the game studio had fans concerned that the Call of Duty franchise’s quality would decrease. Treyarch’s Call of Duty games were above average but still not as slick and polished as Infinity Ward’s games. But that changes now.

DJ Hero 2 is a sequel as good as the original

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
DJ Hero may not have been the sales phenomenon that Activision was hoping it would be last year, you know, like how Guitar Hero grew to be. But the publisher is sticking by the franchise with DJ Hero 2.

Rock Band 3 continues to rock on

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
Rock Band 2 came out way back in 2008, and we’ve had Rock Band Beatles and Rock Band Green Day to hold us over until Rock Band 3. While the band specific music games are great if you’re a fan of the band (who isn’t a fan of The Beatles though?), most players want a variety of music to choose from and play with.
