Here’s a break from your regularly scheduled programming. I teach drums at a local high school and here’s one of their competition runs. They’ve got champs this weekend and I’m excited to send off my first year of teaching with a bang.  https://youtu.be/gsSk6eLTXuo

The Bell Jar

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath: Chapter 7 Page 77 “I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and…

Drama, drama, drama…

Good-morning Bingers! T.G.I.F It’s Friday again! Spring is here and it’s still raining. If you love the rain, this makes you happy.

Track by Track: Stolas – Self Titled

Pretty much from the first note I knew this would be refreshing given two weeks of not really feeling what I was listening to.  Overall: 8/10 Favorite Track: Bellweather Least Favorite: Cold and Unmanageable Anhedonia It’s the song that cuaght my attention and for good reason. The intro is the right kind of calm and the…

St. Patrick’s Day

Good morning Bingers and Bingettes! T.G.I.F Happy St. Patrick’s Day! My last name is Irish but I have not one bit of Irish in me. Long story! In fact, I can’t even tell you that my family has ever celebrated it. All I know about the holiday is that beer is a major resource and…

You Know You Want to…

Erica here, and this week I’m letting the “experts” direct your next television binge-watching extravaganza. The latest recommendations from Rotten Tomatoes include HBO’s Westworld (Who wouldn’t want to watch a show about a futuristic robot-staffed theme park?) and Netflix’s Stranger Things (What Generation X-er wouldn’t want to watch 90s sweetheart Wynona Ryder make her big…

Track by Track: Senses Fail – In Your Absence

​I’ve heard their name tossed around, but I’ve never given them a real listen. Here it goes.  Overall: 7/10 Favorite Track: Jets to Peru Least Favorite Track: Jets to Perú Right off the bat, it’s not what I expected. Lyrically it’s a little cheesy, but I like it.  In Your Absence The background strings add…

Fist Fight: Ice Cube Crushes It

If you are anything like me, you are a huge Charlie Day fan. I’ve been watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for years, and I loved him in the Horrible Bosses films. When I saw the trailer for Fist Fight I got stoked! Ice Cube’s role as a overly intense teacher looked great, and I…
