Heavy Metal Yoga Adventure in Atlanta

Ommmmm \m/ Metal Yoga. Laugh if you will. Say it defies logic and must defeat the purpose. Call it the mother of all oxymorons. You know what I call it? Freakin’ awesome. If you’re any kind of music fan, you must know that thrill – you know, that chill you get the minute the lights […]

Well, our journey is just about over. We’ve reached the end of the line. It’s fitting to say, as we reach the end of our A to Z journey through the Music-Fan Connection, that the music never dies. Fans may fade away and bands may part ways, but the music will endure. And it will […]

Let’s Put the X in… the worst song lyric ever

OK. I contemplated my music-related X topic for a while. I thought about profiling Australian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and all around cool Aussie dude Xavier Rudd.

M is for… Metal Yoga

Throwing a big ‘horns up’ today to Neda Draupadi Honarvar. While I don’t know Neda personally, nor have I visited her Tough Love Yoga Studio in Atlanta (yet), I *can* say know metal. And I know yoga. And I’ve been so excited to write about her brand of yoga for “M” since I started my […]

Jaunts and Haunts with Jake and John

Ah, the Big Apple. So many sights to see and things to do. You could hop on a double-decker red bus to see the traditional tourist must-sees: Times Square, Central Park, Empire State Building. Or… you can head downtown and let a certain red – and pink and purple and orange – haired host play […]
