A Visit With Ex Ambrosia Singer David Pack

Mark Joseph | September 1, 2014 | Entertainment
It's not necessarily lead singers that "have left, or abandoned" their bands, it can be growing in different directions. Or it can be a band no longer swimming in the same direction. It can be hard to admit it when a band has run its course.

The Biggest Band in the World: Reflektions on Arcade Fire

Joshua Ostroff | September 1, 2014 | Canada Music
Despite debuting at number one upon release last fall (and subsequently winning the best album Juno), a year later "Reflektor" feels like a cultural disappointment, having failed to expand their commercial or critical reach. It's not a bad album, but for a band with two bona fide classics under its belt, it wasn't good enough. But if the record didn't sound like it was coming from the biggest band in the world, the live show sure as hell does.

Dr. Sharon Ufberg | August 31, 2014 | Entertainment
Bonnie plays a gorgeous fiddle and Nick works magic on his guitar. They perform effortlessly together as if they have been doing it their whole life--which, well, they almost have.

Peter Dreier | August 31, 2014 | Politics
It is unfortunate that few Americans know much about labor history and the Reuther brothers, who built the United Auto Workers union that transformed the broader labor movement and helped build the nation's middle class.

Would you use an app that sends a message to other users in the area so they could go break up with your boyfriend, or propose to your sweetheart? Well, artist/filmmaker and writer Miranda July thinks you should.

Adrien Brody Makes Houdini Worth Watching

Jackie K. Cooper | August 29, 2014 | Entertainment
Along with the particular charm of the story you get the excitement of some of Houdini's most death defying escapes. If you are not already familiar with how the story is going to end these daredevil escapes give real suspense to the show.

Is the Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Marriage Really a Slap in the Face to Gay Couples?

Nikki Gloudeman | August 29, 2014 | Entertainment
Brad and Angelina are married. It presumably made them happy. And proffering that happiness to everyone is something well worth fighting for. One broken promise by two actors doesn't diminish, sabotage or weaken anything activists have achieved--or foreshadow a bleak future of continued bigotry and silenced chapel bells.

How The Giver Gets It Wrong

Charles Alexander | August 29, 2014 | Entertainment
The Giver is off the point in 2014. Yes, our current governments aren't good for us. But the answer is not less government and fewer rules. We need strong, independent governments that can be an effective counterweight to the increasing power of corporations.

A Childless Woman's Thank You to Jennifer Aniston

Nicole Luongo | August 29, 2014 | Women
Whose business is it, anyway? Just because I'm a woman doesn't mean I want to experience child birth. Just because I am the youngest of eleven doesn't mean I want a bunch of kids. I love inspiring and teaching children. I don't want any of my own. And, I'm not alone.

Beyoncé's Hip New Club: Feminism

Emily Gallo | August 29, 2014 | Women
All over the internet Beyoncé is hailed for bringing FEMINISM to the masses, for delivering it to teens and anyone watching who might have considered it a bad word. If Beyoncé is a feminist, well, hell, then I am, too! Where do I sign up? But what are they signing up for?
