Tides of March: Spring Break in Denton

So, did your grandma, or I guess for some of you younger whippersnappers out there, your great-­grandmas, ever sit down and tell you a story of what it was like during World War II?

THIN LINE: Tacos, Tunes and Two Left Feet

When you think of a festival, the mind really only goes in two directions. You’re either picturing some artsy-fartsy films you’ve never heard of, or antiques and taco trucks. And, while yes, both of those situations can hold equally delicious and infuriating results, they are also only a small part of what the word really […]

Thin Line: One Million Steps presents Turkish anguish through tap dance

Maybe you’re out, just a good night out on the town. Maybe you’re with someone, someone special. Maybe y’all go get a drink, a bite to eat, or catch a movie. Or, maybe you find a quiet place, an old skating rink’s parking lot or a hilltop overlooking the city. The stars and the moon […]

Thin Line: Life on Bitcoin

It’s no secret that we live in a digital world. We can watch TV on our phones whenever we want, or keep track of far we’ve walked throughout the day on our watches. Mailing physical letters has been outdated for a while now, but the ease and quickness at which emails can be shared now […]

Thin Line: Skips Stones for Fudge captures sport of stone skipping

It’s an old American…proverb (Legend? Myth? Thought bubble floating over Snoopy’s upturned nose as he stretches ponderously across his red-roofed house?) It’s an old American folktale that the first car race ever, in the whole, glorious history of car racing, was held roughly five minutes after the second car was made. This is just a […]

Thin Line: You See Me sums up experience of profound loss

Loss is a part of life. We have to deal with it in some form day after day. Sure, sometimes it’s just a simple case of running out of chocolate milk, but the empty hole it leaves is nevertheless devastating. Other times, though, it’s no laughing matter.

DBFF: Voices Thrown Silent tells story no one wants to discuss

By Logan Holloway Laughter truly is the best medicine. Need a wake up jolt in the morning? Why not try taking a break from your sixth cup of Folgers breakfast brew and give our friends Calvin and Hobbes sort out life’s problems, or at least pee on them. Trouble falling asleep?
