Local Television Profiles the Eerie Roller Girls by Jay Stevens
WSEE

Kudos to WSEE/WICU12 for discovering the Eerie Roller Girls and doing a four-part special series on the league. 

Part one: Eerie Roller Girls team history. (Do not adjust your browser. The video is messed up.)

Part two: roller derby explained. 

Part three: the "sisterhood." (I'm glad Hixenbaugh is a fan.)

Part four: skills and practice.

Great to see the derby league get even more press. Credit to Hixenbaugh: the four-part series is a pretty good video primer of the sport and worth a watch, even if you have to endure the usual joking give-and-take between the anchors...

The Welsh alternative band that has always used its music to rail against war, injustice, and apathy tones down their politics a bit a delivers a catchy and likable album.

In an age where plenty of material goods are shipped in from overseas, the bright minds nominated in the Design Competition are trying to bring some innovation to Erie, Pa. at the Erie Art Museum.

Imagine a backyard party, but one with awesome jam bands that lasts two days. Head to the Gathering at Chaffee’s in Girard to make your vision a reality.

A great expression of nearly flawless hardcore, lyrically diverse, and pulsating formula, From Parts Unknown hits hard and fast.

Mark Twain? Cross-dressing? People faking their own deaths? Yep -- this one has it all.

If this album doesn't inspire you to play, nothing will.
