More Cowbell, Less Cowbell, It's All Good

My early musical education, as a child of the '70s, pretty much guaranteed that I would be all but friendless throughout junior high school. Sufficient time has passed that I may declare this fact without (much) bitterness.

By Any Other

Did y'all know that, had it not been for particular air currents and atmosphere density, and maybe a thumb-muscle, our fair city might have been named Boston?

S'truth!  Co-founders Asa Lovejoy and Francis Pettygrove each wanted to name it after cities in their respective home states – Lovejoy was from Massachusetts, while Pettygrove was a Maine native.  They settled their debate with a coin toss, and Pettygrove won.  So instead of being named after a town in Massachusetts,…

Market Forces

I'm trying really hard to become a fruits-and-veggies guy.

When I was a kid I was all about the meat.  I learned to appreciate that hallowed stack of blood-sludging ingredients known as the cheeseburger, and to relish (heh) the tubular excellosity of a jumbo chili-dog.  Steak and chop nights at der Garrison haus had me…

Steamy

I was Steampunk when Steampunk wasn't hot.

The very first science-fiction - or speculative fiction, as some writers and fans who would rather not be tied down by real-world physics and other sciency constructs prefer to call it - book I ever read was H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds, and I was instantly transported by that juxtaposition of 19th Century aesthetic and prescient, other-worldly technology.  Wells and Jules Verne could be seen as forebears of the genre, but…

A Man Walks Into A...

At first blush a newcomer to our City of Roses might be confused about our drinking establishments. “What”, he or she might ask, “are the differences between a pub, a bar, and a tavern? Or are there any?” To which some liquor-fixated folks may reply “Nuhthin', they all serve booze.” This response is erroneous of course, like saying a wildlife preserve is a zoo or a motel is a homeless shelter. There is some overlap of fixtures, quaffables, and clientele here and there, but the three species…
