<i>All I know how to do anymore is make pasta and yell:</i> The Foundry Theatre&rsquo;s therapeutic agitprop <font size=2>by Allen Johnson</font> Nov 4, 2006

Major Bang or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dirty Bomb is wonderful – i.e., it elicits and arouses wonder. It's marvelous, and whip-smart, and messy and very tight.

I get all excited about good theater. It’s embarrassing. I am so fucking un-cool.

Foundry Theatre: Major Bang Review <font size=2>by Christiana Axelsen</font> Nov 4, 2006

The image that is burned into my consciousness after watching Major Bang, is the image of the red backpack seemingly floating in the darkness of the back of the stage. It glowed like a radioactive beacon, towering and occasionally writhing, subtlely dominating the show. This backpack, found abandoned on a subway, produces objects that create the inspiration for the  “play ” (earning its quotation marks for reminding me of the play within Hamlet that nicely encapsulates pure entertaining drama, theatrical self-awareness, and intellectual fodder.)

Not long ago I worked in a record store in Minneapolis with a Jandek section to rival the Dave Matthews Band display at your local Best Buy. It took several re-orders (they were surprisingly popular) before curiosity drove me to choose from the cheapie discs with stark photographs of that guy, like Boo Radley-meets-Danny Partridge, and play Staring at the Cellophane (1982) on the store’s stereo.

Jandek review: Let me tell you a story...<font size=2> by Dustin Haug</font> Oct 28, 2006

3 years ago, I was on tour in Nashville, TN. On Halloween, I performed 3 sets of improvisational dance with some local musicians in the attic of an abandoned maple syrup warehouse. There was an art gallery opening downstairs, and when I wasn’t dancing, I was drinking beer from a gigantic metal keg out of a plastic cup. A few days later, I found myself at a bar that one of the local musicians suggested I check out. The bar was called "The Bleeding Pig" or "The Skewered Hog" or something equally southern and disturbing.
