» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

We have been hearing a lot about art in Austin, Texas, recently. We're actually going to feature a "Recent Works" exhibition by Aldo Valdés Böhm at this very gallery on Monday, but we just wanted to share the cute image for their second annual fundraiser, seen above. It is a two-day event, with activities separated by only 9 hours, hence the name.

"Night Owl" runs from 6pm-midnight on Friday 3/12 and is "a night of collaborative art making" for artists to meet, greet and probably later tweet with. "Pencils, paper, beer and pizzas will be provided" so it has that going for it right off the bat, and pizza grease and beer dribbles make for excellent smudge enhancers for that pencil on paper sketching.

"Early Bird runs from 9am-noon on Saturday 3/13 and is an open invitation to see what the see what the previous night's hoot crew created. The artwork, "a mix of collaborative and singular works," will be up for sale, but the breakfast treats and coffee are on the house.

Down at Big Medium in Austin, the gallery we alluded to above where this is taking place, those for-sale objects are being peddled to raise proceeds to fund the Texas Biennial art show and the East Austin Studio Tour. The former may sound familiar to LAS readers as it is likewise in Austin and was given an LAS feature last year.

The LAS Staff
A number of the Lost At Sea staff have worked and continue to work for various publications, both independent and commercial. Often very stifling in their narrow focus, conventional media outlets left our writers hungry for something bigger, more diverse, more communal. More active, because this is the twenty-first century and it makes sense. During it's short life LAS has accomplished many of its goals (but not all) and has in turn set new ones. Everything that we accomplish is through teamwork and cooperation, both with our regular staff writers and with our contributing writers. LAS is nothing short of a collective. Another contrasting point to some of the magazines out there is that we've checked our egos and scene ethics at the door. We welcome anyone and everyone to contribute and cover a wide range of topics. LAS does not follow your guide lines.
