Where We Eat: Ciccio Cali

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day I finished writing Act IV of my new American tragedy theatrical piece dubbed Ciccio Cali. Act IV, like the previous three acts, was set in the beautiful outdoor seating area of a restaurant, Ciccio Cali, in Tampa Palms. The weather was perfect, just the right amount of Florida sunshine and shady trees and seventy degree temperatures floating in the air. The table […]

Listen: Oil Slicks Caused by Valise, Jonathan, Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders and Stefan Pruett

When visions of mushrooms soaking up oil spills and Salisbury steaks require a soundtrack, this is what comes to mind first: Valise’s new song “Dialogue” doesn’t fit traditional Salisbury steaks at all. Those pieces of mystery meat are drab, archaic and overly processed while “Dialogue” is a bright springy jaunt over minimalistic fields. You know what you come across in minimalistic fields? Mushrooms. Tons and tons […]

Cook: Salisbury Steak with Tomato Gravy

On January sixteenth, I plopped a plate of greasy fried okra in front of J-Fur. It felt like a momentous day as we had finally moved past the halfway point of our January New Year’s resolution. Everyone else was going healthy, we thumbed our noses at that. Our goal was to ingest at least a helping of fried food each day for a month. After the […]

Food Flavored Song: Wasabi Nut Nut Nut by Tirikilatops

Wasabi is nutty, pungent and herbal. It is also hot. Not the holy f*** my mouth is on fire type hot that traipses through salsa, a deeper burn one that leaves your mouth entirely and settles into the deep dark dankness of your sinus cavity. The same descriptors that convey the power of wasabi, could also be used to explain the music that avant garde South […]

Listen: On the Avenue, Fire Fences, Life in Film and Creo

Staring at breakfast sandwiches can feel a bit laborious. Thanks to these tracks my four minutes flew by: Anyone who knows me and my listening habits know that a good mash up of hip-hop and indie rock will hit me right where it counts. Unfortunately the good in this genre is few and far between. On the Avenue is the latest pop/rock/hip-hop/alternative band to come […]

Cook: Aron Love Sausage Sandwich

Mandy Len Catron recently wrote an article for the New York Times about making someone fall in love with you. It was based on a study that Arthur Aron, noted psychologist, conducted two decades ago. According to Dr. Aron’s study, a series of 36 questions, each getting more and more personable, and a four minute stare into each other’s soul session is all it takes for two […]
