Laughing Our Way Into The Teen Years

“So you’re telling me, that if you saw Adolf Hilter walking down the street, you wouldn’t kill him?” “Well that’s not what I was saying. But sure, let’s talk about this…entirely new topic”. My fourteen year old daughter has had a quick wit that belied her age since I was […]

Last Week’s Lucy Dacus Concert

“Night Shift” is a slow burn; it’s a wick set alight; it begins as a gentle midnight stroll before reaching the boiling point of a cobblestoned city. There is some distance needing to be traveled before the heat can be felt on our faces, before sweat forms in the palms […]

Two Days in Norwich

You don’t know anything about Norwich; you don’t know where Norwich is or what’s there worth seeing. Norwich isn’t London but it’s not far from the capital, at least not in an American road trip sense of the relative word ‘far’; about 100 miles north-northeast as the crow flies. Norwich […]

Helpless

When sung by Angelica Schuyler, the word possesses a seductive warmth. Helpless, yes; his eyes how they leave her so. The view from 10,000 feet is one of a great run. We have had such good fortune. Yeah, there was the weeks of PT after the ankle thing and the […]

World Premiere Video: Gustafer Yellowgold “Ellen Lemon”

Here’s to those with whom we could talk for hours, who bring us raisin cookies with the raisins taken out, who are awake beyond their age, who amaze us, who are the autumn to our spring; here’s to those with whom we can sit in total silence for an entire […]

Two Spartans on the Acela to D.C. During March Madness

The quiet car was dimly lit and silent, as advertised. Some chose to sleep. I regret now that I did not follow suit but the Camp Cope records that’ve been in heavy rotation for over a month would never be prescribed as a cure for insomnia. So the concert played […]

The Case For Burying A Head in Sand

They are winning. The floodgates were opened and were systematically dismantled, piece by piece, with haste, in the cold light of day, for all to see. “Here we are, taking it all apart” Some wore hats and cheered. Others wore a scowl and held up posters. Most watched Netflix and […]
