Solid as a rock

Pegasus takes a sure-footed Journey to the Center of the Earth

This may be the natural progression for this art form, a return to spotlighting the shiny gold bricks of good intention on the road that leads straight down under. And so Journey to the Center of the Earth becomes an inadvertently appropriate title, a return to the core of a world of surfaces that's exciting for its fragility, the lunacy that at any moment might begin to unravel the whole fabric. The process of regrowing our cherry may be, on one level, a grotesque and even dangerous endeavor -- the fleshy barrier that returns is likely to cover our eyes as much as protect our ignorance...er, I mean virtue. But I seriously doubt we're going to return any time soon to the mass delusion that official America is Anglo, male, heterosexual, Christian, and morally sound. The creepy thrill of entering a world where such assumptions reign in all their satiny horror makes for a helluva lot more engrossing stage performances than sitting around crowing about other people's hypocrisies one more time.

Daniel McDaniel, A. Raymond Banda, and Coy Covington map out a largely irony-free trip to the Earth's core.
