If you live in our fair city, you're familiar with the Mixmaster -- the sometimes-sizzling, sometimes-icy jumble of asphalt that is the intersection of Interstates 30 and 35, along with a few downtown on- and off-ramps thrown in for good measure. You're also probably aware that Dallas has art and culture scenes bustling with traffic and passion that could rival that junction at any given rush hour.
So, please welcome the Dallas Observer's latest edition to its Interwebs family, the sister to Unfair Park, Sportatorium, DC-9 At Night and City of Ate, named for the iconic intersection, but with a punny nod to mixed media and mastery of the arts. After all, what kind of Observer blog would we be without our back-handed Dallas pride and punny nods?
Here, we'll aim to give you a glimpse of all areas of Dallas culture, an expansion on our dead-tree product so we can better preview, cover and discuss all the things you're seeing and doing out there. Art, crafts, dance, books, comics, fashion, design, film, television, theater, photography, pop culture, geek culture and more: The Mixmaster wants to deliver it all right here to you.
As we build up The Mixmaster over the next few weeks, we're confident you'll see it grow from a fledgling blog to a veritable clusterfuck of arts and culture. Because anything less just wouldn't live up to its name.
