    David Bowie: The Next Day Video Review
    David Bowie is not an artist without controversy. Since the release of his first album in 1967, the sometimes androgynous performer has always possessed the ability to stir the pot, especially when rock and roll needed it the most. One of the first patrons of Glam Rock, if not the...

    Cooking Community: A Review of the Irresistible Table by Mary DeMuth

    Leonard Cohen: “Old Ideas”, Acceptance and Redemption
    I have to admit it; I am not a big fan of “Christian” music.  I find more personal satisfaction in secular music and actually find that more of the “spiritual” is revealed to me in the honesty of my favorite artists.  In a church culture of shallow and transparent worship...
