    There are lots of stories of exotic pets gone rogue. This doc focuses on the right one.
      against the keeping of wild animals, Brumfield tells a story about how his big cats, Lambert and Lacie, have become his reason to get up in the morning. There’s no doubt the man needs a psychiatrist, but it’s also clear how desperately he loves these animals.

    A local artist on little black dresses and how so much of creation is about erosion.
      McWilliams’ art works with notions of creation and destruction, both mental and environmental, so it’s fitting that her artist’s studio — a disintegrating, two-story brick storefront across from Piggy Mart on Third Avenue — is, in her words, “condemnable.

    Tax Day — Yay!
      Ponder that GE story for a minute: Between 2007-09, GE also laid off 21,000 American workers and closed 20 factories. And we reward that? But don’t blame the corporations, say those leaders who thought a couple wars wouldn’t be too expensive.

    It’s one meshuggeneh after another in this Sisters play. They’re crazy!
      But with whom did audience members have to identify, after all? The hotsy-totsy banker? All these other limousine liberals, jetting all over the world? No, my friends. But the wife and mother from suburban Boston — the middle sister, this one they call Gorgeous Teitelbaum — her.

    Game of Thrones makes the leap from gratuitous pulp to iconic epic.
      Instead, it happens in Westeros, where summers sometimes last years and brutal winters often drag on for decades. It’s a world where a fool king — replacing a mad king — rules precariously, while a marauding horde of horsemen gathers forces across the sea.

  • 'Tomboy,' Panda Bear

      That’s when the downtrodden opening confessional suddenly U-turns into a playful, funky, sax-infused salutation to a night on the town. It’s a thousand miles away from the weighty, confrontational rock the band is known for, and the vibe permeates the entire record.

    Washington musicians revive the songs of the past while creating a language that is uniquely their own.
      “Mighty Squirrel’s music doesn’t fit any categorization,” says Greg Spatz, who plays bouzouki, fiddle and octave mandolin in the band. “Which, to my thinking, makes it a pure folk music in the sense that it borrows from other traditions. We take something that’s been around for hundreds of years and then we make it our own.

    The death and rebirth of Disney animation
      Walt Disney movies are the stuff of legends. Literally. Our most popular fables and myths are not Aesop’s, nor from the Brothers Grimm, but the story of a plucky meerkat and warthog who help a lion king regain his throne. It’s an abundance of dalmatians matching wits against the female personification of the devil.

    Wait, no, Knight and Day has nothing to spoil.
      Is it too much of a “spoiler” to “reveal” that a certain movie cannot be spoiled? That a movie has no big surprises on offer to blow you away? That a movie is absolutely, 100 percent, nothing more than what is up there on the screen right at the tippy-top surface of the story?.

    Mastodon gets better and better with every record.
      Just hours before their guitarist’s brain hemorrhaged, putting him in a three-day coma, Mastodon had finished one of the most important and high-profile performances of its career — playing “Colony of Birchmen” at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards with Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

    It’s hard out there for a pimp. Hard for actors, too, with all the flawed heroes in Brooklyn’s Finest
      Sal (Ethan Hawke) makes it look like he’s on the ball, doing what needs to be done, always in the right places at the right times when busting up drug deals. But he’s falling short in providing money for his family, and there’s a lot of dirty cash easily within his reach.

    Cool Nutz has been representing Portland hip-hop for two decades and won’t be quitting anytime soon
      “I grew up in Northeast Portland, and making music [there] for so long has opened my eyes — it’s taught me that I need to make music that’s digestible for hip-hop fans and for everyone who likes quality in this city,” he says. “We have an abundance of rap talent and people doing all forms of music.
