A recent roundup of Central New York's Underground bands

A recent roundup of Central New York's Underground bands

My name is Seriah, and I am the host of a radio show on Saturday nights on 93.5FM WVBR called "The Last Exit for the Lost." It is an underground music show, which focuses mostly, but not exclusively, on Metal and similar styles. I also book occasional shows at The Haunt to feature various local and underground artists and have a couple of DVD series highlighting the same styles, as well as hosting a talk show on the paranormal and ancient mysteries (called "Where Did the Road Go?") just before the aforementioned Last Exit.

Ithaca comedians and movie buffs will tear up history's worst Batman movie

Ithaca comedians and movie buffs will tear up history's worst Batman movie

The Batman mythos has spawned about as many screen adaptations as the arguably more-recognizable Superman, from the campy '60s TV series to multiple movie outings and a hugely popular and well-regarded animated series. Nearly everyone can agree that 1997's "Batman & Robin" is the absolute worst. That's the film that's getting a comedic roast treatment at a downtown shop this weekend.

Community Arts Partnership opens upcoming health care reform workshop to the public

Community Arts Partnership opens upcoming health care reform workshop to the public

Maybe it's because everyone in Ithaca is an Obama fan and had already signed up. Maybe the Affordable Care Act is so terrible that people would actually rather pay a fine than be covered for pre-existing conditions. Maybe everyone in the Community Arts Partnership already signed up for a secret health care plan just for liberals.

Robo Reboot: New RoboCop as much a fun guilty pleasure as the original

Robo Reboot: New RoboCop as much a fun guilty pleasure as the original

Let's get this right out in the open: the original 1987 movie "RoboCop" was not art. The Paul Verhoeven picture had a creative and appealing story, and it was fun, but its Academy Award nominations were for editing-related categories. The José Padilha remake, out this week, may be flashier and offer more star power, but it's still really a fun romp.
