I loathe clockwatching — or so I thought, until I saw three hours worth of Christian Marclay’s amazing The Clock,
a 24-hour art installation/video collage at Columbus’ Wexner Center for
the Arts, on the Ohio State University campus through April 7.
If you drive to Columbus by Dec. 30, you can see a photography show — Annie Leibovitz
— that serves as the culmination to the journey through
celebrity/fashion photography begun by three FotoFocus-related museum
Every construction manager understands that sometimes there’s just no way around taking a break from the job — between bad weather, lost materials or John Kasich, something is bound to slow down production. Highway workers outside of Columbus today found out the hard way that just about anything can send you home early — hardhat and lunchmeat sandwich in hand.
Steve Chabot banned cameras from a town hall meeting in Green Township for “security purposes.” Chabot then advised residents to fight a new plan to add public housing units to the neighborhood, though his speech was reportedly cut short when he saw a guy playing “Angry Birds” on a cell phone and thought he was recording a video and laughing.
I don’t know or care whether my university has winning teams. I have a life, something that Ohio State University fans need to get.

If you were to judge what marriage is like by depictions in beer commercials, you'd likely believe that most of them are pretty terrible and most husbands are real dicks who prefer doing idiotic things with their friends than spending time with their wives. In fact, a new study by the Pew Research Center found that 39 percent of Americans believe marriage is becoming obsolete. Jerry Seinfeld's hilarious TV single life apparently has spoiled it for everyone.
In the Good Old Days, journalists generally held a story if authorities said it could compromise the stakeout, chase or anticipated capture of a suspect. Even if we knew where agents were headed or or stood with them outside a motel where a kidnapper and victim were hidden, we responded with silence. These issues arose again when the 24/7-obsessed news media unthinkingly helped the Times Square bombing suspect almost escape.
Tim Easton's Ohio roots form the very heart of his new album, 'Porcupine.' The Akron resident attended Ohio State University in the mid-'90s, formed his first band, toured Europe, honed his craft while street-busking, then returned to Columbus and joined The Haynes Boys. Their Garage-tinged Americana attracted serious attention before Easton recorded his 1998 solo debut, 'Special 20.'
