?I really like your reviews,? Ron Bayuzick said to me around Christmas time. ?They?re well written, fair, and you seem to know what you?re talking about.? Before I could start blushing, shuffling my feet, and mutter a ?thank you,? he added, ?I have a show coming up in August, and if there is going to be a review, I want you to write it.?

Birtherism still lives. I know. I encountered it on Facebook when one of my ?friends? posted a link and a video detailing how President Barack Obama?s long-form birth certificate ? released early in 2011 ? is actually a forgery.

I?m not just lurking aimlessly through cemeteries; I have a guide. It?s the Let?s Move Outside Erie County Recreational Passport, and I?m currently making my way along the Fort LeBoeuf Trail. LeBoeuf is one of 10 trails, and my mission is to complete all of them by October 20. If I do, I?ll get a prize for enjoying the outdoors, getting my heart rate up (climbing on covered bridges optional) and learning the stories behind local landmarks, such as Hare?s resting place. Pretty sweet deal, right?

You could call it folk rock, but if CSN is wine, Falling Hollywood is whiskey. You could call it pop punk, but if Green Day is menthol, Falling Hollywood is reds. You could call it cow punk, but if Jason and the Scorchers is bathtub gin, Falling Hollywood is PBR. You could call it rogue folk, but if the Pogues are a Guinness, Falling Hollywood is, well, still a PBR.
