Susan Stoner on her novel "Timber Beasts"

The Ghost Writer, now at the Fox Theater

Categories:

The Ghost Writer
Director: Roman Polanski
With: Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall, Tom Wilkinson, etc.

Very good Polanski film, with winks at his influences and even his own older films.  Yeah, he is a troubled guy (would you have been able to cope with his life?) and guilty of an unsavory crime, but his skills are mostly intact here.
A former Tony-Blair-like British prime minister (Brosnan) hires a ghost writer (McGregor) to complete his memoirs.  The previous writer had died under mysterious circumstances, and the PM’s household is an armed camp of neurotics and paranoids.

Queer Cornucopia on Out Loud Radio

Tonight's queer radio hour discussions range from local work toward queer sex positivity (and porn) to a nationally known stand-up comedian. A real queer cornicopia, or maybe we could call it a pornicopia, if the FCC isn't listening......

Carla, host of Out Loud, talks with Portland locals Darklady and Sophia St James about two upcoming queer sex-positive events, including visits from F2M Porn Star Buck Angel.

Alice in Wonderland (Several theaters)
Director: Tim Burton
With: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas

It’s a good thing I don’t have to write to a deadline.  As I left the theater, I was high on this movie (no pun intended), but its flaws became more evident as time passed.

Bruce Guenther on "Disquieted"

Art Focus
program date: 
Tue, 03/02/2010

The guest is Bruce Guenther, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Portland Art Museum. Bruce Guenther curated the current exhibition, DISQUIETED, which shows through May 16th. Artists have always reflected and reacted to the world around them—and contemporary art, through its form or content, often disturbs as much as it provides solace. In DISQUIETED, a roster of renowned contemporary artists explore our social condition and respond to the most compelling issues of the day, challenging our preconceptions and exposing our vulnerability in turbulent times. Kathleen Stephenson guest hosts.
