LIFE & ARTS
'Rock School' chronicles
life of a class act
It seems that nowadays, because of
the rigorous acceptance requirements at private schools and Ivy League
colleges, kids are bombarded with extracurricular activities. Some kids
have sports, some volunteer and some get to spend every afternoon rocking
'Adventures' keeps kids happy
at adults' expense
Racer Rodriguez, the 7-year-old son
of writer/director Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, Sin City), may face a year
or two of wedgies and swirlies from classmates who hated The Adventures
of Shark Boy and Lava Girl in 3-D as much as the critics did.
The power of cute compels you
Cuteness is a science of survival.
By possessing the qualities of cuteness, an organism like the puppy is
granted a distinct advantage over less attractive animals like the sewer
rat or street pigeon.
