It was our 4th time producing “Funk Cancer” and the event was held, as usual, at Funk ‘N Waffles here on the hill. We had some wonderfully talented musical […]

I was at a meeting a couple of weeks ago with a colleague who had just come back from SXSW. He was giving us the highlights of some of the things he had seen. One of those big things was the Meerkat app that allows the user to live stream. Apparently this took SXSW by […]

Today is National Orange Day! But when you Google it, it doesn’t show up so off to the source for all things weird: Wikipedia! Plug in National Orange Day in Wikipedia and it links to . . . Syracuse University. So National Orange Day isn’t so much a national day as much as it is […]

I am a patient person. I can’t remember when exactly the new studio process started but it’s been at least three years I think, maybe more. I was on the studio committee and I do remember that at first, we just sat around and offered up ideas, things we’d like to see. We talked a […]
