Deleted Scenes: The Future, And Welcome To It

I get curious sometimes about the future. Not like the short-term, Obama’s-coming-for-our-guns-gonna-ruin-the-country future, but 500 or 1,000 years from now, when in all likelihood nothing you and I and the president say or do will have had even the slightest consequence.

Maria Mar's Local Radar: Amy Malkoff And The Moonshines

All of my local music friends and family, it’s about that time! I have done some heavy research this week trying to bring a new band to the table, and success has been the result. Of course, I had to narrow it down because there are so many out…
