What We Were Promised: #bookreview

  What We Were Promised looked so promising sitting on the NetGalley shelf. It’s a very well-written book. All of the characters were seriously lacking in their interactions with each other. There wasn’t much tension between husband and wife, mother and daughter or boss and employee. I think there was supposed to be tension betweenContinue reading “What We Were Promised: #bookreview”

The Best Bad Things: #bookreview

  If you were going to be a cross-dressing spy, do you think that you could be successful in hiding your true identity? In The Best Bad Things by Katrina Carrasco, it’s 1887 and Alma Rosales has been dismissed as a Pinkerton Detective. Her former boss, Delphine, is the leader of a drug smuggling ring.Continue reading “The Best Bad Things: #bookreview”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Lunar Femmes

  Once in a blue moon, I stumble upon music that doesn’t have words but is still enjoyable. If you need music to relax or help you focus on something besides finding a time machine to fix all of your mistakes, then I would suggest Lunar Femmes. Lunar Femmes will be releasing a second EP,Continue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Lunar Femmes”

Interview with . . . Blackbriar

When I was little, one of my favorite fairytales was Snow White and Briar Rose (Rose-Red). It’s not a common story so I haven’t heard it in a long time. While looking for more Celebrity Ghost Stories or New Years Day, I came across a video of Blackbriar, an alternative/gothic metal band from the Netherlands.Continue reading “Interview with . . . Blackbriar”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Houses

The second that I started playing this album by Houses, I knew that I would love it. It’s not a feeling that I get with every album. The songs are all appealing in their own way. “Fast Talk” will have you hooked from the start. “That song is meant to be a memorial for aContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Houses”

How to Love a Jamaican: #bookreview

How to Love a Jamaican by Alexia Arthurs is a collection of short stories with characters from Jamaica. None of the stories intersect at all. On the surface, no one has much of anything in common, except that they are from Jamaica. The characters are gay, straight, educated, uneducated, poor, rich and so on. SomeContinue reading “How to Love a Jamaican: #bookreview”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Bayli

Summer is technically over but it’s never too late to listen to Bayli’s album, Summer Mixtape.    Bayli makes what she does seem so easy and effortless. So what does she do? She’s a talented singer and songwriter. Her lyrics and videos are inclusive of everybody. I think if she met you on the street,Continue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Bayli”

116 Days of Summer Guests: Public Policy

A few years ago, I interviewed Providence, RI’s sax-fronted postrock band A Troop of Echoes for The Huffington Post (read it here!).  We discussed their 2015 release “The Longest Year on Record,” a delightful DIY symphony featuring dozens of friend and neighbors supplementing the core quartet with a choir of strings, horns, voices, and drums.Continue reading “116 Days of Summer Guests: Public Policy”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Subways on the Sun

When the first song on the new Subways on the Sun album started, I was not convinced that I would like this album. By the end of the song, I was prepared to stay for the rest of the album. It doesn’t always go like that – not everyone wins over the audience. Capsize willContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Subways on the Sun”
