    Pimpin' With a Mullet - Artist Ryan Humphrey riffs on hot-rod and rocker culture

    Like a souped-up, tricked-out rocker's van, Ryan Humphrey's work jumbles the signs of clashing cultures: It's Pimp My Ride meets Van Halen. References to Eddie Van Halen's red-, white- and black-striped Kramer 5150 guitar sit opposite an homage to th...

    Lewis Blows His Top

    Copycat Killer - Saints Row shamelessly apes Grand Theft Auto.

    Camel Light

    The Big Animal (Milestone) It's a simple yet lesser known law of comedy: Camels are always funny. There are the jaws that drool and chew side to side, the front legs that move like a human's, the humps -- but mostly it's the eyes: There's somethin...

    Poetry and Puncture Wounds

    The Proposition (First Look) There's an old saying about Ginger Rogers, who did everything Fred Astaire did--but backwards and in heels. This Australian western seems to be saying something similar about gritty American westerns: You think that's ...
