Things I want to remember about the Avett Brothers show tonight: 1. The greatness of singing along with songs I love. My introduction to the Avetts was at a live show in Santa Cruz last summer. I didn’t know any of the songs, but I knew they were something special. I gobbled up all the Avett I could. Now, I know and love the songs, so round two was even better than the first time. 2. ...

A Story Two Sentences Long.

Its probably still in beta, like everything Google does. I think...

A few things I want to remember about the Explosions in the Sky show tonight: 1. I always feel really connected to the rest of the crowd at an Explosions show. I like to think that everyone there really appreciates beautiful music and the power of amazing music. 2. They are one of the loudest bands I have ever seen live. The energy they pour into their crecendos is unbelievable. 3. The last...

I kept seeing signs that said, “When lights are flashing, highway is closed.” And the following thought process ran through my head. How comfortable should I feel that there is a permanent sign that...
