Hopping Down the Bunny Trail
Spring Alternative Gallery Hop
When local artist Sherlock Terry recently scored a small grant to help pay for his artistic endeavors, he vowed to spread the wealth among the local alternative arts community. He decided to get a bunch of noncommercial art venues together, most of them centered around Downtown, and organize a gallery hop.
Writer in the Window
She is, by all accounts, a very wise woman. Georgelle's been answering random questions posed to her by strangers for two solid decades in bookstores from New York to California. You might've seen the questions, and her often witty responses, posted in the window of the Book Stop in Nob Hill or, more recently, in the window of Crane's Bill Books. This Thursday, April 15, Georgelle will make a live appearance at the Guild Cinema to answer your questions about everything from sex to God to the nature of evil to break dancing. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10. 255-1848.

Java Joe's Coffeehouse
Next time you're over at Java Joe's scarfing a bagel and slurping some Joe, cast your eyes to the walls. Two local lady artists, Zelda Gatuskin and Veekee Eha, have decorated the inner sanctum of this famous Downtown hangout with some very killer cool art. Gatuskin supplies some inventive photo collages to the mix, while Eha contributes some animated watercolor paintings. Their show will only run through the month of April, so catch it now before it's too late. For details, call Java Joe's at 765-1514.

The Last Paradise: North Korea
I am a foreign exchange student from S. Korea. It's sad that I always have to put an ’S' in front of my country. I wish I could just write "Korea" without an initial indicating we are a divided nation. Whenever I introduce myself to people here, they usually ask whether I am from South or North Korea. I guess many Americans don't know that North Koreans can't even leave their own country. So, yes, I am from South Korea. To tell you the truth, I don't often dwell on how we are divided. I wish we were united, but in South Korea, at least, we are doing just fine and everything seems pretty good for now.
The Whale and the Supercomputer: On the Northern Front of Climate Change
The Innuit know it. The scientists know it. You and I know it. The only people who don't seem to have a clue are quarantined in the Bush administration. In an entertaining fashion, Wohlforth chronicles the ways in which both scientists and indigenous people are attempting to find solutions to this looming problem.
