After that outpouring of angry rhetoric, I have to admit at least one of my assumptions about gun owners was wrong: A substantial number of gun owners are far crazier and more dangerous than I ever imagined. I’ve always thought the vast majority of gun owners were living in a fantasy world as a result of seeing too many bad movies.

Mac LethaL is a prick. Of course, that’s kind of his appeal. A curmudgeonly white rapper with a waning hairline and a sad, protruding belly, Mac Lethal riffs like an incensed insult comedian about the many things that piss him off— Christians, vegans, scenesters, Ben Harper—filling the funny, irate rapper void left when Eminem lost his sense of humor.

Rudy Rotter must have been a fine dentist. He never looked into my mouth, but we did look into each other’s eyes one day, years after he gave up dentistry and devoted himself entirely to art. What I saw was a warm and kindly man of integrity with no apparent interest in the fuss and pretense of the art world.

Twentieth-century Europe was the playing field for two world wars and the front line for the Cold War, but most of the trigger points were on the continent’s periphery, the Balkans and the eastern lands from the Black Sea through the Baltic. Dan Diner, a historian at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, explores how East impacted West in Cataclysms,.

The outstanding 1967 movie has never been so well served: Skylight’s unyieldingly exuberant musical production, letter perfect to a fault, containing dance numbers executed with a precision to honor any Broadway musical, rivals the highly touted 2001 stage version and surpasses the grossly overproduced screen version that met only moderate success.

Antes... y Despues (A.R.C. Discos) Jorge “El Guero” Hernandez may be the best-known regional Mexican artist with Milwaukee roots. Most of a decade has passed since he and brother Rogelio moved to San Antonio, but El Guero’s Banda Centenario still nurtures a unique take on the often-manic Duranguense subgenre on the group’s sixth album.

As I said in a previous column about oral sex, I suggest abandoning the attitude of “convincing” a partner to try something new and taking a more egalitarian approach. First, I would like to point out that the anus is an equalopportunity orifice. Everyone has one.

The Third Ward has changed a great deal since the Milwaukee Ale House opened its doors 11 years ago. The Ale House was one of the first ventures to renovate a vintage building and take advantage of views of the Milwaukee River. A decade later the “renovated loft” look, with hardwood floors and exposed brick, remains an attractive setting.

In his 1936 essay on the work of Russian author Nikolai Leskov, Walter Benjamin spoke of the gradual demise of the storytelling tradition.

Gary Tanin goes back a long way in Milwaukee music. He started recording with 1960s garage bands and by the early ’70s was already ahead of the pack by releasing carefully crafted DIY albums on his own label. As the ’90s began he was collaborating with musicians from half the world away, producing CDs long distance by uploading tracks.
