  • Entertainment Bottom Pride

    For only one week each year, a flat nothing desert in Nevada becomes a city of 50,000 citizens bent on radical self-expression, possibility, and limitless art. At the Burning Man festival, everyone is welcome everywhere. And I do mean everywhere. Inside the sensual circus tent of camp Comfort & Joy men lie blissed out on pillows and cushions. On one side of the tent is a sign designating a place for 'Puddles,' your courtesy bottom. This sign leaves me feeling both queasy and intrigued. Did I read it right? A courtesy bottom? By the name of Puddles?

  • Entertainment Ready To Reinvent Love

Odd., was an ambitious and serious play for grown-up music cred from a group of flamboyant young guys previously known for accidentally conquering MySpace and MTV on their way to platinum-selling status. The band spent this spring and summer on the road with the Honda Civic Tour, a rocking and energetic series of shows now captured on CD and DVD in 'Live in Chicago.

  • Entertainment Forever Young

    Elizabeth Peyton has made a career of capturing the ephemeral in her portraits, nimbly toeing the line between exultation and documentation. Employing vivid colors and dramatic brushstrokes, the painter depicts famous figures as youthful androgynes caught in quiet, introspective moments staged years before they gained notoriety. The result has the moody, nostalgic quality of photographs taken through bleary, rain-streaked windows.

  • Entertainment Viva Grace!

    'It happened quite by accident, actually,' says Grace Jones of her latest album, Hurricane, smiling, all faux disinterest. 'I didn't plan to record anymore.' The first new material she has released in 19 years, it replicates its title in each dynamically constructed groove. If a 60-year-old woman is not supposed to act with the indecent funk of it all, no one has bothered to tell Ms. Jones.

  • Entertainment Remaking the Castro Clone

    Levi's 501 jeans. Skin tight. Sanded down at the knees and crotch for that perfectly worn-in look. Third button unbuttoned to create a bit of allure. T-shirt, also skin tight. A Levi's snap-front plaid. That was the uniform of the Castro clone, the gay fashion icon spawned in the '70s that -- with surprisingly minor evolution or alteration -- can still be seen on the streets of San Francisco today.
