It was not a light decision. I’ve been trying to do…

There will be more tributes next week from those who knew him and worked with him—which I cannot and will not say I ever did—but as that comes together, it would be neglect on our part not to immediately note and mourn the passing of The Aquarian founder James Rensenbrink,…

Out Of Bounds: Blood. Sweat. Beards.

It’s been said that baseball is a game about individual statistics, and not necessarily about team success. Without thinking, you’d be able to tell me that Barry Bonds is the home run king*. You know Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa put up gargantuan numbers in the late ‘90s/early 2000s.…

Local Noise: Wood Shampoo

Wood Shampoo was initially the brainchild of Murph Daniels, but the group really came to fruition when he partnered with guitarist Tommy Byrnes to create the unique and eclectic sound that has become their trademark. I caught up with Murph to ask him how the project came together, and…

Reality Check: Lou Reed – 1942-2013

“When you dance hard…slow dancing.” – Lou Reed, “Rock Minuet”
