Looking back on this beautiful weekend spent in Pensacola at DeLuna Fest 2011, I have a lot of bedazzling memories. Framed by the emerald gulf,  DeLuna Fest's crown jewel was Girl Talk. Pittsburg native Greg Gillis, also known as Girl Talk, left an engineering job to pursue a career in music. It is rare that I say th...

San Diego-based rock band Switchfoot, most notably known for their hits “Meant to Live” and “Dare You to Move,” have outdone their previous albums again. Their newest issue is called Vice Verses, and it has been referred to as their most personal and explorative album yet. I love the album,...

After what was thought to be the pinnacle of soccer games in FIFA 11 (minus the infamously buggy career mode), no one thought that the sequel could outshine it to a high extent. FIFA 12 proved to everyone that EA Sports would continue to put out stellar versions of the game. After several years of m...

  I’ve been a Weezer fan for years. Probably for about a decade, to be honest. Their self-titled debut record and Pinkerton are some of the most important records in my life. But a few years ago, Weezer released Raditude, the latest in a series of records representing a severe decline in quality...

In the Northwest side of Macon, at 1693 Bass Road, a charming Italian restaurant named Mirko’s Pasta serves up self-proclaimed authentic Italian dishes to those who wish to experience Italy through their taste buds.   I must profess, having visited Mirko’s previously gave me high hopes for my first...

3/5 Bear Claws I know what you’re thinking: “A movie about lizard cowboys? Are you serious?” Yes, actually, I am. And believe me, I was a little dubious too, but I found Rango a fun and clever romp that explodes one Wild West cliché after another in a way that makes the movie unique and memorable. In the film’s opening scene, you know that all hell is abo...

  4.5/5 Bear Claws If Tina Fey is your hero — and if you’re between the ages of 18 and 28, she probably is—you need to read her new book, Bossypants. You know how on an episode of 30 Rock, Liz Lemon tells Rosemary Howard (Carrie Fisher) that she is her lady hero? That’s how you’ll feel about Tina Fey...
