Ben Doane is a local comic artist, author of Good Morning Gorgon, which he does in collaboration with Olivia Li, and the recently released Skull Clit.  I sat down with him Sunday the 21st at the Dunkin Donuts in Harvard Square—which he jokingly says he lives at—to talk to him about his work.

Good Morning Gorgon is about a single mother gorgon, who takes care of her headsnake children.  Its child friendly, and revolves around the struggles of a single parent household.

The Convert performs its last week in Cambridge

Quality theater is right around your corner in Central Square.

NeighborMedia is always interested in the arts and supporting voices not necessarily always heard in the city of Cambridge. February boasts wonderful performances, especially in theater arts. And while there have been numerous choices, and you cannot support them all, you still have time to catch a glimpse of quality local theater before this month is over. One such amazing theater presentation is The Convert a play by actor/playwright Danai Gurira.

In preparation for Valentine’s Day, I attended the Love Sucks Oddity Market, which was held Saturday, Feb. 13, from noon to 6 p.m. held at Eridanos tattoo shop at 38 Prospect Street.

The market was full of peculiar things from Bad Moon Consignment and Our Lady of Reclamation, ranging from taxidermy squirrels and deer, old textbooks on skin diseases, to sheep hearts in jars.

I found the market as a whole, however, quite underwhelming.
