Close Encounters – The Truth is Still Out There

By Michael A. Wiseman   It’s a known fact that art imitates life. Terrifying sometimes, and impossible to believe at others, but many of the things we read, watch, listen to, and generally ingest for entertainment-value have a real world origin. Wait, you thought that Richard Gere’s cult-classic THE MOTHMAN […]

Cabaret- A Tale of Two Anthems

By Randy Gillis   “Start by admitting, from cradle to tomb, it isn’t that long a stay.”   “Life is a Cabaret”. That statement is amazingly flexible in subtext. It sounds quite different when belted out by a desperate, young, hedonistic, sexually free woman in the wink before the rise […]

Piecing Together the Story, Unraveling the Mystery

By Cyndi Briggs   I knew my grandaddy John by these things: the bright, open, and immediate smile that was never far from his face. The smell of aftershave and pipe tobacco. The roughness of his cheek as he hugged me hello and goodbye. I knew him through soft drinks […]
