Another highlight for me at Outside Lands 2012 was on Saturday when I had the opportunity to talk with drummer Eric Slick of Dr. Dog before their Saturday evening show at the Panhandle Stage.

Friday evening the sun was glowing its last light as I snuggled on the train to go to New York City. The notion of public transport makes my mind sink into deep mystery storytelling: I thought of the past, I thought of the present, and I thought of the near future.
This week’s trend “Rad in Plaid” is all about taking influence from 90’s grunge and making it your own with a “come as you are” attitude. Plaid has that causal cool feel to it that we love and it’s easy to adapt to a look that suits you. Read more »
Whenever people tell me about a book that made an impact on their life, it touches my heart so much. Nothing’s more beautiful than reading words that soak into your soul.
