What’s Cooking with Mario from Epic Proportions Tour?

It all started with an old school bus and some used vegetable oil. That, and a crazy idea dreamed up by a musician and former artist manager. Why don’t we make some waves in the music industry and take music to the people who need it by gathering up young, local, unsigned bands and sending them out on tour to do some free shows at colleges, high schools and […]

Artist’s Cookbook: Lemon Whiskey Slush Courtesy of Minka

I’m going to let Philadelphia Fun(k)-Rockers Minka do most of the talking in this post because they are just that entertaining. What you need to know before we get there is: Minka just released their follow-up to last year’s successful self-titled EP. This go round is called the Republican. If you are walking through your local cocktail lounge and hear a track that features punchy drums, […]

What’s (Not) Cooking with Lewis Hurrell (Volume 2): Green Goddess Salad Dressing

A few weeks back Lewis Hurrell invited us into his kitchen to show us the secrets of his raw chocolate which he paired nicely with his synth-pop tune “Ordinary Life.” Not one to rest on his raw keys, Lewis is again making things happen in the kitchen and the control room. In the kitchen, Lewis continues to not cook. This time his rawness takes the […]

Artist’s Cookbook: Fish Balls by Ívar Páll Jónsson (1000th Post)

“Fish don’t usually have balls, but this is an Icelandic recipe for fish balls.” -Ívar Páll Jónsson In his book 101 Brilliant Quips From an Icelandic Songwriter (not yet written but I assure you it is coming) Icelandic artist Ívar Páll Jónsson provided us with the above quote. This is an important tidbit because, in a bit of an informal survey I just conducted at my local grocery […]

Baker’s Dozen: Interview with CREO

Sydney’s CREO are the type of band that likes to let their music (and the critics) do the talking for them. You won’t find them, even on their own social media sites, shamelessly plugging how amazing they are. Instead you will find a descriptor along the lines of “CREO are four dudes from Sydney who do their take on rock and roll.” Bam! Microphone drops to the […]

What’s Cooking With Timothy Cushing

This blog is named for the artistic endeavors of writing, cooking and photography and the age- old pastime of listening to music. Had I knew it was going to turn into a five year endeavor I might’ve put a little more time into succinctly saying what I meant. Oh well, its a mouthful. Of course, that’s what we like around here… It could’ve actually been worse. In […]

Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Vegan Cinnamon Rolls?

While I love fruit desserts dearly, there is absolutely no after dinner (or early morning) treat quite as sexy as a cinnamon roll. It all begins with that soft, warm, yeasty interior seasoned with a reasonable amount of sticky cinnamon. If you stopped there, things would be good enough. But a cinnamon roll keeps pushing the sugar envelope. It is then drizzled with gooey icing. Its a mess. […]

Artist’s Cookbook: What’s (Not) Cooking with Lewis Hurrell?

Since the World Cup is coming our way in a little over two weeks I’ll use a bit of a soccer analogy to describe songwriter/producer Lewis Hurrell. He is an American, from Sebastopol, California, who holds dual citizenship as a result of being born in England. That means if he was a soccer star he could elect to play for either country in the World Cup. […]

Artist’s Cookbook: Beat the Heart’s Tjälknöl

Somewhere amidst the frost bumped loins of Stockholm, Sweden there lives a group of five men. Four of these men are brother pairs. The fifth wheel is a haunting fellow named Filip. These brother pairs and Filip have merged their extraordinary talents into one seamless project. The result? Beat the Heart. Beat the Heart is best described by what the band has accomplished. They’ve been able […]
