Explosive Dadarhea, Michael Cera, and Bill Murray

Call us old fashioned, but we still insist on pumping out a print issue every week. We like smear newsprint ink under our eyes and shoot paperclips at each other until they shut off the lights and AC. We had to stop such war games last week, though, when Leroy lost his eye (and his sense of humor).

The print issue, however, is still scheduled to hit newsstands tomorrow, but you bloggy types can always find the issue's articles right here on the interwebs. For instance, this week, read a detailed preview of the explosive "Dadarhea" art exhibit that opens this Friday at O.H.W.O.W. The gallery's been dark for months, so welcome back wow kids. As Carlos Saurez de Jesus writes:

The best way to wrap the skull around "Dadarhea," the absurdist funstravaganza opening at O.H.W.O.W. this Friday at 8 p.m., is to re-imagine the cult summer camp classic Meatballs, except starring extremely talented creative types rather than nerdy spazzes or mush-brained counselors.

On the film front, the mad genius behind Shaun of the Dead, Edgar Wright, and hipster nerd-hunk, Michael Cera, are joinging forces in the new flick Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Village Voice film critic Robert Wilonsky remarks:

Wright ... immerses his heroes in pop culture's detritus and diversions,

but doesn't drown them in it. You don't have to be dazzled or tickled by

the movie, or get every joke, to be touched by it, too.

Also opening this weekend is

Get Low

, a Deperssion-era dramedy with Bill

Murray and Robert Duval. Chuck Wilson, who reviews the film in this

week's issue, says:

Provenzano and Mitchell's screenplay has a streak of melancholy running

through it that's right for the film's Depression-era setting and for

Felix's heavy-heart dilemma, yet the script is also dotted with little

drops of sly humor.
