  • MANNA GROCERY & DELI // DELICIOUSLY DIFFERENT

    471-MANNA REVIEW

    MANNA GROCERY & DELI // DELICIOUSLY DIFFERENT Manna Grocery has been Tuscaloosa’s nontraditional grocer since 1980. Originally located on 15th street, this natural food store introduced Tuscaloosans to a variety of alternative foods and nutrition products. Though the term “natural” has yet to be defined by the FDA, many consumers perceive the claim to identify […]

  • NEW BELGIUM TOUR DE FALL PALE ALE // GOOD BEER

    471-BEER REVIEW

    NEW BELGIUM TOUR DE FALL PALE ALE // GOOD BEER I love fall, but I hate the clichéd “specialty” beers that are released around this time. I also hate Oktoberfest beers. I think they’re garbage and don’t really taste that good, and if you don’t agree, well, that’s your opinion and I’ll pray for you. […]

    T-TOWN BAR GOES CRIMSON & WHITE // NEW OWNER BUYS MIKE’S BAR AND CHANGES NAME AND REPUTATION Tim Gillaspie knows what the people of Tuscaloosa really want. When he first set up shop in T-Town he sold University of Alabama merchandise, from umbrellas to nail polish to puppy sweaters, and he eventually owned Bamaland, one […]

  • SCARIEST MUSIC VIDEOS // SOME ARE UNINTENTIONAL

    471-SCARY VIDEO

    SCARIEST MUSIC VIDEOS // SOME ARE UNINTENTIONAL Ever since MTV first showed Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video, the use of gothic and macabre imagery in music videos has been a staple of the art form. Whether going for a cheap scare, or truly trying to disturb viewers, main artists have successfully made 2-5 minute horror movies […]

  • “GONE GIRL” // FAITHFUL TO THE BOOK AND DEFIES EXPECTATIONS

    471-_OUJA 2

    “GONE GIRL” // FAITHFUL TO THE BOOK AND DEFIES EXPECTATIONS Watching David Fincher’s deliriously tantalizing whodunit “Gone Girl,” a melodrama about a troubled married couple wrestling with compatibility issues, reminded me of the film classic “The Postman Always Rings Twice” (1946) co-starring Lana Turner and John Garfield. Turner and Garfield played illicit lovers who arranged […]

  • ELVIRA’S 20 BEST // ON HULU

    471-FLAT SCREEN 1

    ELVIRA’S 20 BEST // ON HULU Halloween is the time for television networks to broadcast their spookiest, scariest movies and television shows for the entertainment of the costumed masses.

  • ANTHEMS OF THE SOUTH // AUTHOR SCOTT BOMAR’S DYNAMIC NEW BOOK

    471-SOUTHBOUND BOOK COVER

    ANTHEMS OF THE SOUTH // AUTHOR SCOTT BOMAR’S DYNAMIC NEW BOOK I have never considered myself a musically inclined person. There were several attempts to learn the piano or saxophone in high school, but all that ever produced was a jazzier rendition of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”. I never really considered myself a fan […]

  • 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. Nashville was the first outlet for the humble Pennsylvania girl-with-a-guitar. […]
