The Armpit of America

Although I left New Jersey to attend college and never returned other than for brief stays while visiting family, I consider myself a Jersey girl. When asked where I’m from, I proudly, if not a little defiantly state, “Jersey!” Not like someone wouldn’t be able to guess if I played coy: my pronunciation of “coffee” and “drawer,” my stubborn, feisty, and slightly abrasive personality, my harsh criticism of bagels and pizza in the DC area (not to mention that I’m visibly aghast anytime I watch someone eat pizza with a fork and knife) would give me away in a heartbeat. 346 more words

In between the dimensions of music - and colourful dreams | Album Review

Listening to this album reminds me of the fragments of quantum leaps across dimensions into alternate universes … It’s got that familiar nostalgic 80’s grounding that we all know (no matter how old you are), and yet it has time aura of psychedelia that puts this album in a lane of it’s very own.  406 more words

Music Monday: The Devin Townsend Project, "Numbered!"

Devin Townsend, the singer, is bizarre and prolific and utterly talented. Talents ranging from the real heavy metal of Strapping Young Lad to the weirdly comical concept album Ziltoid the Omniscient to this operatic, progressive rock that utilizes not just Townsend’s impressive vocals, but also female singer Anneke van Giersbergen. 291 more words

Fiction Friday: "Dear Owner of This 1972 Ford Crew Cab Pickup" by Desirina Boskovich

For this week, I decided to do something a little different. Partially because Hugo voting is over, and partially because I haven’t had time to read any new shorts in a while (everything you’ve been reading the last month has been scheduled out weeks in advance). 146 more words

The downside to having been there and done that...

I’m always so fucking bored and getting drunk/high isn’t always a cure all anymore.
