  • SWEETWATER HOP HASH DOUBLE IPA // BE PREPARED

    472-BEER REVIEW 1

    SWEETWATER HOP HASH DOUBLE IPA // BE PREPARED I took a trip to Atlanta for Halloween to see one of my good friends, Thomas. We both share a love for beer, so I knew we would end up drinking a lot of it. He took me to a package store minutes away from his apartment […]

    “JOHN WICK” // SIZZLING SHOOT ‘EM UP // NATURALLY, IT’S BARELY BELIEVABLE Never kill an action hero’s dog! All Hell breaks loose in the sadomasochistic, R-rated, revenge-thriller “John Wick” because the malevolent villains not only steal our hero’s ‘to die for’ vintage 1969 Mustang, but they also murder his dog.

    ANTHEMS OF THE SOUTH // AUTHOR SCOTT BOMAR’S DYNAMIC NEW BOOK I have never considered myself a musically inclined person.

  • TAYLOR SWIFT AS A POP ROBOT // AWKWARD NEW RECORD

    471-ALBUM REVIEW

    TAYLOR SWIFT AS A POP ROBOT // AWKWARD NEW RECORD Even if you enjoy the new, bionic Taylor Swift, a relentless dance-pop machine with phasers set to “profit,” you have to feel for the country fans that thought she would stick around a little longer.
