Now I can’t say in total honesty that a Thanksgiving carol of this sort exists, but one comes fairly close to the mark, a tune that every baby boomer can hum and many can still sing along with to this day...Read More

So, it’s been a pretty entertaining pop culture summer. Some great films came out. I picked a bunch of books off the New York Times Book Review that I have no time to read. Lorde’s Melodrama made me hyperventilate.

Just be wary of any ghosts that may come a-knocking at your door when you play this late at night…Don’t let them in...Read More
This past Wednesday, October 5th, I was privileged to attend the Poetry @ Bennington series at Tishman and hear poet and essayist Mary Ruefle read her work. For this second installment of the series, I decided to sit in the very back of Tishman, and was rewarded by the entirely new perspective this change in seating lent me...Read More
