There’s a new place to shop for original gifts in the East Valley, and it’s only going to be open about three weeks.
When the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers faced off for the first time in October 1968, it was for a preseason exhibition game in the middle of a modest central Mesa neighborhood, in a building already well-loved by hundreds of young people in the community.
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
Those beautiful summer vacation photos are in a cardboard box. Somewhere.
When he was young, he rose before dawn to tackle chores on the farm. As the years wore on and he no longer had to do so much of the physical labor himself, he still started his day at 4 in the morning, getting farm business out of the way by 6 so he could get on with other important matters, like serving the school board, Rotary Club and Methodist Church.

Animals take center stage this summer at Tempe Center for the Arts’ “Animal Crackers” exhibit. Featuring works from national and local artists, the Gallery exhibit explores animal-related themes ranging from weighty to whimsical.
Grover and I go way back. Being a child of the ‘70s, “Sesame Street” was a part of life. The characters and songs from the show still flow easily through my head: “Around. Around. Around. Around. Over and under and through.”
Finding air-conditioned summer entertainment can be tricky in the Valley of the Sun. It got a bit easier when Arizona’s newest cultural attraction — Butterfly Wonderland — opened last month in Scottsdale.

BOISE, Idaho — A dozen years after a customer revolt forced Monsanto to ditch its genetically engineered potato, an Idaho company aims to resurrect high-tech spuds.
One perk of living in the East Valley is our vibrant music and art scene. We regularly enjoy national and international performers, but we are also blessed with talented local musicians and artists. You can experience that for yourself Saturday at the Mesa Arts Center, where the Symphony of the Southwest and the Youth Symphony of the Southwest perform Ravel’s famous arrangement of Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition,” along with other works by Brahms and Strauss.
The Symphony of the Southwest is partnering with Mesa Unified School District to present "Beauty in Sight and Sound," a special multimedia extravaganza. The symphony will play side-by-side with the Youth Symphony of the Southwest in a program that features artwork by Mesa district high school students.
Highly intense and vociferous on the field, Desert Vista boys soccer coach Mike Rabasca needed a moment to choose his words afterward.
Children crowd around touch screens as their parents and teachers look over their shoulders. The group is huddled together in a tunneled, dark room reminiscent of a space ship control room — with walls lined with lit up diagrams and interactive video screens.
A new crop of Oscar-winning pics will be announced in February, but you can still catch the latest Best Picture winner, “The Artist” at Phoenix Art Museum.
The idea of watching a movie in which a sniper methodically crafts his own bullets, practices weekly at a gun range, then waits quietly in an empty parking garage before shooting five people dead may not sound like the most appealing form of entertainment during these tragic days.
When you think of Native American art, pottery and textiles may come to mind. You may not be so quick to picture art made on the lined sheets of ledger paper.
‘Silver Linings Playbook’
Year after year, I find myself complaining about the state of love stories in the movies. From those damn “Twilight” pictures to the countless vehicles starring the showboating Katherine Heigl, inspired romance has become difficult to come by in this day and age. 2012 however, has exhibited an unexpected change of pace in the romance department. With “Safety Not Guaranteed,” “Rudy Sparks,” “The Sessions,” “Hope Springs” and “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” this has proven to be a reassuring year for movies about unlikely people coming together and having a meaningful connection. Even several major action blockbusters, such as “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Looper” and “The Amazing Spider-Man,” have managed to incorporate smart, believable relationships that do not just feel tacked on.
“That movie would have been infinitely better if it had been shown in 3-D.” I cannot speak for the rest of the movie going population, but this is one sentence I will never utter walking out of a cineplex. That is not to say 3-D technology is completely expendable. With the right movie, 3-D can be effectively exploited and have an enriching impact on a cinematic experience. In a majority of cases though, 3-D merely acts as a shameful method for the studio to increase the ticket price. Some people buy into the assumption that 3-D makes a movie appear more realistic and integrates the audience into the action. When not properly executed, however, 3-D can have dark, dreary and distracting consequences on a film originally shot in 2-D. In that sense, 3-D not only robs the audience of an extra $3, but also takes them out of the motion picture.

Despite the proven talents of first-time feature director Genndy Tartakovsky ("Dexter's Laboratory"), writers Peter Baynham ("Arthur Christmas") and "SNL" vet Robert Smigel, and a voice cast headed by Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, the collaboration falls flat virtually from the get-go, serving up half-hearted sight gags that have a habit of landing with an ominous thud.
A pink tutu may not seem like a fitting costume for a male superhero, but it’s what Bob Carey wears. And “hero” is how some might think of this man on a mission with his wife, Linda, to take good care of breast cancer patients.
