ART & DESIGN

 » J.S.G. Boggs - Few artists have done more to confront society with their own perceptions of the relationships between art, money, and value. Over the past two decades, simply by drawing money, J.S.G. Boggs took the art world - and the attention of the US Secret Service - by storm.

 » Poetry Spam 03 - The Cognitive Science Laboratory at Princeton University defines poetry as "literature in metrical form" or "any communication resembling poetry in beauty or the evocation of feeling."

MUSIC

 » Q And Not U - No booze was no problem for DC's smartest art punks last night at Foudini's, as the quartet, fueled by Smart Water and rocking capris like it was nobody's business, kicked out jam after adrenalized jam, prodding and poking at the space between themselves and a typically lethargic swarm of just-so-coifed indie rockers until even the most over-it hipster was clapping along and getting D-O-W-N. Here's five images from last night.

MUSIC

 » Shiner - "We aim to please, anger, enthrall, incite, overcome, underwhelm, procreate, exacerbate, expel all untruthitudes and falsities, and carry out this agenda till the ramparts are bursting in air all over our dumb asses." An interview with Allen Epley.
[12.12.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Absinthe Blind - Catching up with Champaign-Urbana's local superstars isn't quite as easy as it used to be. After years building a massive and massively loyal local fanbase, the space-pop quintet has now set out on the road, hoping to win over the rest of the world.
[09.20.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Ted Leo - An in-depth interview with Ted Leo on topics like listener reactions, the break-up of Chisel, and Adidas SL72 sneakers.
[09.07.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

PHOTOGRAPHY

 » Emilie Wilson - Six shots of sinks, pots, and pissers from the bi-coastal curator of SnapCity.com.
[05.31.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Aloha - Aloha sits patiently in my living room, waiting to begin the second interview of their young careers as inventive rockers. The group's freshman full-length album, That's Your Fire, will be released next month via the Polyvinyl label and will undoubtedly proceed to take the indie music world by storm.
[04.19.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

PHOTOGRAPHY

 » André Thijssen - For his third set of images the Dutch photographer offers up a series of automotive images that, while conveying the everyday normalcy of transport, also highlight the diverse personalities that drivers develop for their vehicles and the distorted reflections that automotive glass provide of their surrounding environment.
[03.30.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

GREEN

 » Rails to Trails - FROM THE ARCHIVES: With an additional 2000 miles of railroad going unused each year, the original 300,000 mile network of American rail lines has been cut in half over the course of the last century. Can the land upon which the abandoned lines rest be put to public use?
[02.23.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » John Davis (Q and Not U) - When not rapping away at his drum kit, laying down the certifiably danceable beats for the new Dischord records flagship band, Q And Not U drummer John Davis can be found releasing albums on his imprint label, publishing post-punk lit in his magazine, and answering random questions from LAS.
[01.21.2000 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Juno - Excuse my French, but this band is fucking amazing. And they have an amazing story. And the songs you haven't heard, the songs they have yet to record, are more amazing than the amazing songs you have heard. An interview with Arlie Carstens.
[12.14.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

PHOTOGRAPHY

 » Chris Baronner - Former Ethel Meserve bassist and current Life During Wartime primary DJ CB presents a series of photographs taken during 1999 at the White Lodge in State College, Pennsylvania.
[12.14.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Wheat - LAS Editor Eric J Herboth sits down to discuss the Boston band's magnificent sophomore album just released by Sugar Free, the disturbing film Gummo, and even more disturbing freak accidents.
[11.17.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Q And Not U - With squalling guitars caught up concertina wire and a buoyant, almost sketchy bass working reluctantly under the spell of crisp, rapatious percussion, the whip-smart sound of Dischord Records' new flagship is the second coming of DC punk, as primed to soundtrack your punk prom dance party as it is your anarchist political rally.
[11.11.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Dismemberment Plan, The - "Jack Kerouac. He's dead, so we can't shoot him, but we should revitalize him just to shoot him for the legacy he left behind." A brunch interview between Eric J Herboth and Travis Morrison at the Diner on South Grand, in St. Louis.
[10.28.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Sterling Silver - FROM THE ARCHIVES: An email interview with Demetrius Antuna of the San Diego-based band with alternating male/female vocals and a palpable sense of cohesiveness. The guy uses the word "hugest" when talking about his mom.
[06.24.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

PHOTOGRAPHY

 » André Thijssen - A Dutch photographer and image manipulator known for striking images spread across a diverse palette of subjects, André Thijssen returns for a second series with LAS, this time delivering a collection of images taken from Portuguese graveyards. "Often there is no more left of the portraited person than one eye or even less," says the Amsterdam-based artist of this remarkable series.
[06.24.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

LITERATURE

 » Bridges With Spirit - LAS is excited to present a chapter from the forthcoming novel by Indiana-bred and Seattle-based writer and publisher Adam Voith.
[04.30.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

LITERATURE

 » A World Away - Instead of grabbing the bull by the horns, in his latest novel Stuart O'Nan opts for a tale of infidelity and adolescent emotions back home, a story which seems better suited for a TV mini-series or a grandmother's late night reading.
[04.01.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

LITERATURE

 » East of the Mountains - One of the best books I have read in the past few years, David Guterson's second novel even features an International Scout in the first chapter - a sure way to embed in my mouth not only a hook but a line and sinker as well. Guterson has firmly redeemed himself as a talented writer with his sophomore effort.
[04.01.1999 by Eric J Herboth]

MEDIA

 » Insound - FROM THE ARCHIVES: With only a few months of operation under its belt, the web's newest and hippest online music retailer has built a swelling customer base and begun influencing other media outlets as well. A 1998 interview with founder Matt Wishnow.
[12.09.1998 by Eric J Herboth]

MUSIC

 » Frodus: Introduction - Having been captivated by the contents of an odd "flexi"-single included with an issue of Muddle Magazine, LAS senior staff writer Eric J Herboth became an instant convert to the ways of this Washington D.C.-based gang of musical thugs.
