The Looking Glass

Hey everyone, as Relient K week is winding down (there’s only one more post after this one), I figured it was time to do the big post. So here we go as I rank all eight of Relient K’s full releases. I’ll also be doing quick or possibly very quick reviews for each album. As […]

Elements of Screen Arts (2019)

With Repo Man supposedly becoming a cult classic over the course of time it was released, I really tried to look hard enough what people saw in it in the first place. Even after multiple viewings and a few digging around the internet, I realise one thing; I really can’t like a film as much […]

Rudy Cathcart

In honor of his 78th birthday, I thought it was only fair to provide a list of Bob Dylan’s top ten tracks. Dylan is widely regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of his time, and for good reason. As a prolific musician, his discography includes over 300 songs, a good number of which have […]

Migratory Caving

The Ridgewalk After two weeks underground, arriving at Proyecto Espeleologico Systema Huautla was a shock. Plan Carlota was full of people talking and roosters crowing, and featured a set of dueling loudspeakers on the hill above. So when the chance came to go with Mark Minton and Yvonne Droms up to an outpost camp, in […]

Notes from the PCT

Miles hiked today: 17.4 Miles hiked total: 406.6 I sleep on one of the sofas in the living room of the airbnb, but not very well. I wake to the sound of Odin making coffee, and then he makes us our favourite blueberry pancakes. I have woken up this morning with the physical manifestations of […]

Counterzine

Dishital Weekly is Counterzine’s weekly roundup of 5 digital only releases we think are worthy of your attention. The only rules are that we like it and there’s no readily available physical version at the timing of writing. When it was released, genre, platform: none of these matter. If it’s new to us and it’s […]

Kirkham A Movie A Day

“Rocketman” is the Elton John biopic that is both musical drama and comedy. I was able to see an early screening last week and because I’ve been so busy I have not yet been able to post a review at least until now. Let me just say I was really impressed with his film and […]

Everything is bad for you

Everyone else has made one of these lists, so I thought I should as well.  Also, I’m working overtime this week and weekend, so I didn’t have time to play enough of a game to write about in a meaningful way.  However, I was stuck in my car for several hours this week cumulatively, during […]

Growing Older

My oldest daughter sent me the cutest short videos the other day. My oldest granddaughter and only grandson played beautifully in their recent piano recital. They were poised, confident, and had learned their music well. At the end of their performances, they bowed and accepted the well deserved applause from the audience. I watched and […]

The Mountain-Ear

Tea Leaf Green at The Caribou Room Cynthia D. Chambers Peak to Peak On Friday the Caribou Room will host an old mountain favorite, Tea Leaf Green. They have been visiting Colorado and playing their own version of West Coast-Folkey-Rock for over a decade. Each time they tour, fans get a new dose of songs […]

Sedona Bishop

This week in the liturgical calendar we commemorated Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543) and Johannes Kepler (1571-1630), two “saints” of the astronomical world.  It might seem odd that these two early scientists should appear on a church calendar, but both were quite religious men in their own right. Copernicus was actually a clergyman and doctor of canon […]

News by Humans

Watch Taron Egerton Perform Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ But there were certain other locations in his early years of emergence that were vital in that victory, and one of them was an 18th-century château in the French village of Hérouville where John set about making the follow-up to Madman Across The Water, Honky Château. Some […]

Vagabonding Zwindling

Omg i had the bestest day! Even though I woke up with my neck killing me due to the all-windows room’s direct sun exposure plus crap pillows. This town is ridiculously beautiful and ridiculously scenic and ridiculously full of cool people and endless funky but stunning art. I started my all-day tromp with a killer […]
