What to wear when you decided to sweat out of your ear drums? I must say I do keep my drishti focus, but it does float around the room to see what everyone is wearing. As they say: you can take the girl out of fashion but never the fashion out of the girl.

It?s almost time for the show. The stage is all set for the band to come out and play, with instruments strewn across the performing platform ? enough for at least your standard four-person rock group. Soon, a single man takes to the stage and starts laying down a beat. When you start thinking that perhaps the rest of the band will file out one by one, he moves on to a new instrument as the original beat continues. That?s when you realize that this man is the band.

?When you change a child?s life, you change a family?s, which can change a community, and ultimately the world.? This is the belief of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Erie. And if we all bought into that trickle-up effect, we as adults may once again start to see through a different set of eyes and help us to not only understand, but possibly rejuvenate our own outlook on life.

From what I knew before and what I recently came to know, I felt Albert Glinsky was someone Erie needed to know better. My editor agreed.

Politicians have been bloviating hard about the virtues of the free market since the crash of 2008, which destroyed between $10 and $13 trillion of citizens? purchasing power. These for the most part were completely blameless citizens.

The Erie Art Museum Spring Show has long been the premier regional art exhibition in Northwest Pennsylvania. It is satisfying, then, to be able to give it new kudos.

As we watched Jerry Sandusky sit impassively through court proceedings while tale after tale of horror was spun before us all, actions of the man perpetrated under the very noses of his friends and family and employers, innumerable questions come to mind.

Last year, I wrote about the city?s selection of Kansas (the band, not the state) as the headliner, and in the process, I believe I coined a new term for this genre of music: Crap Rock.

The past, present, and future of Erie's summer Tuesday nights.

Erie had its Best Summer Night, but can we do it again?

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway.

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
