Roses Are Love, Hope, and Joy I love flowers, especially roses.  To me, roses are love, hope and joy.  We buy them for ourselves and for others because of those specific feelings. Did you know that there are a couple of varieties that have been cultivated for around six hundred years? Yes, hundreds of years […]

Exile on Ninth Street

I wouldn’t normally weigh in on something as silly as the great “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” controversy of 2018, except that I gave thought to the song’s lyrics before. Why would I even think about this seemingly innocuous song? I really never gave it thought until last year when I worked as a seasonal employee […]

By Ben Arzate Read Part I Here Dedicated to Hardy Fox 1945 – 2018 Despite the premature demise of their American Composers Series project and the death of their good friend and long-time collaborator Snakefinger, the Residents continued to work on new projects. In 1988, the Residents released what is, in my opinion, their best […]

Roth Shank NewZ

From the 40+ albums I spent significant time with in 2018, 25 rise above the others for their associated memories (and dance moves). Whether on the JBL Charge at home, on my bluetooth headphones at the gym, on my earbuds walking around the city, or on Scoobaru the Subaru’s semi-souped-up speakers, I relished myriad genres […]

Rock Your Lyrics

How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs? First of all, thank you for taking the time to chat with me about lyrics. Lyrics are super important and something that I take a lot of pride in. It can happen a few different ways. Normally, I’ll have a very rough recording of the song and try to […]

Throw in the ideas of family, parties, celebration and you have a package of how Christmas is usually communicated.

The Voyage There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our […]

Supernatural Power Through One Law

We’ve heard Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas”, and we’ve heard Elvis’ “Blue Christmas”, but what color is Christmas. We call regular light “white light” even though it doesn’t change the color of the object that it shines upon. It simply illuminates the color already there. Yet, white light isn’t devoid of color. When it is shined […]

If you look closely, you can see Islington’s Christmas lights…, I realised in all my glamorous running for Bev’s mojo, that I had not highlighted the amazing Islington Christmas spectacle.  A basic local run today, and not a lot to say. It was cold, but we had blue skies and I saw just one fellow […]
