Though it’s still winter break for some, there are plenty of artists who can’t sit still. ADD? Nah (well, not diagnosed, anyway). Think of it as creative urges that refuse to be contained. Why usher in 2010 in the usual way, nursing an Irish car bomb hangover while watching a Smokey and the Bandit marathon, when you can greet the new year with new art? Lucky for you, this weekend is a perfect time to do just that.
A Fair Tale
Review by Erin Adair-Hodges
The Children's Book
One of greatest gifts humans have is our imagination, which reaches the height of its powers when we are about 10. And it’s one of the cruelest truths that, as adults, we may remember the sensation of bliss and fear in creating new worlds, but are largely unable to experience it again. It is such a small window.
The Ethical Slut
An interview with an alternative lifestyle pioneer
By Julian Wolf
It comes up at parties. It’s frequently referenced in alternative lifestyle 101 classes. It has changed countless lives, saved numerous relationships and ignited new ones. What resource do we speak of? None other than the groundbreaking book The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy. Published in 1997, The Ethical Slut gave language to a practice that many people had been participating in, some blindly, for generations—polyamory. The Ethical Slut is a guidebook to what consensual, ethical, non-monogamy can be, and outlines how to do it in a logical, practical way. Needless to say, when the new edition of the book came out this past year many people were ecstatic, but nowhere near as ecstatic as we were when Easton agreed to participate in a virtual interview with the Alibi. She found some time on a trip to Europe to answer a few questions.
