    Skinny Gabacho Doesn't Want to Stand Out

    Dear Mexican, I have a stupid, unemployed, 16-year-old gang-bangin' cousin who already dropped out of school, and I'm pretty sure most Mexicans are related to somebody who fits that description. About eight months ago, he knocked up a girl around h...

    Camel Light

    The Big Animal (Milestone) It's a simple yet lesser known law of comedy: Camels are always funny. There are the jaws that drool and chew side to side, the front legs that move like a human's, the humps -- but mostly it's the eyes: There's someth...

    What's Underneath - A seamstress makes Intimate Apparel at Main Street Theater

    Despite its name, Victoria's Secret is no secret anymore. Today a pair of pink silk knickers or a blood-red brassiere is about as shocking as a bowl of canned soup. But back in 1905, ladies' lingerie really was a private, beautifully artful affair. H...

    Girl Art - Barbies and breakups take over Lawndale, with mixed results

    Very rarely has Barbie been used well in art, but Lauren Kelley pulls it off in "Collect Them All! Soft Brown Narratives." It's one of a whole slew of new shows at Lawndale Art Center, but it's the best thing there -- not to mention one of the best n...

    Why do Mexicans put Tweety Bird stickers on their cars?

    Dear Mexican, I see Jews, Asians and Persians making something of themselves and creating safe, walkable communities. Of course they're not perfect, but I don't see high Jew-crime communities, either. I see these people sticking together and helpin...

    Puddle of Fun - LocoRoco is the perfect one-night stand.
