I’ll miss (43 things about America)

I am boarding my flight to Romania in a matter of hours. Below are a few of the things I will miss about America (43 is also the number of months I’ve been away from home). Although this is a numbered list, it is not a ranking. I hope that one day I will return […]

The article, published November 25 was promoting a show the band was going to play the following week in Columbia, Mo. The last quote in the article […]


Early-bird that I am, I was the first to enter the screening-room of Four Eyed Monsters at Boston’s Coolidge Corner last week. Boiled down to a love-story of the MySpace and YouTube age (when is this phrase going to be considered old?), the film is a stirring portrayal of a relationship, as well as an […]
