The BuyCincy Holiday Event

Owen Raich from the Greater Cincinnati Independent Business Alliance

Like it or not, the holiday shopping season is almost upon us, and I doubt that anyone hates malls more than I do.

Fortunately, the BuyCincy Holiday Event (previously "Cincinnati Unchained") promotes the benefits of shopping locally while bringing holiday traffic to locally-owned, independent businesses in the Greater Cincinnati area.

The Kickaways: ShowYrTeeth

ShowYrTeeth is the second studio release from The Kickaways

I love that the album cover for ShowYrTeeth shows a person immersed in a bathtub of glittering sludge inside a dilapidated room that looks like an abandoned industrial warehouse somewhere.  It is this combination of glitzy and gritty that exemplifies the sound and style of The Kickaways. ShowYrTeeth is a tantalizing mixture of glam with a touch of 'the ultra-violence.'

A new book from rocker Ray Davies of The Kinks

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ray Davies of The Kinks has had a complex relationship with America over the years. He’s toured here, was banned from here, and suffered a near-fatal gunshot wound in New Orleans. It was while recuperating from that injury that he began writing Americana: The Kinks, the Riff, the Road: The Story, which has just been released. Jim Nolan spoke with Ray Davies by phone about his life, his music and his divided loyalties between Great Britain and America.

ADM: A Delicate Motor

I have a very love-hate relationship with technology.  On one hand, it is an amazing tool that has revolutionized how we view the world and each other.  It has allowed us to create amazing new things and paved the way for new inventions that can make the world a better, safer and healthier place.

However, it is so dreadfully easy to become dependent upon it that, when it fails, we can find ourselves virtually crippled and sitting in the dark, waiting for the lights to come back on.
