First as Tragedy, Then as Frat

(0) Comments | Posted August 24, 2015 | 11:00 PM

I didn't set out to hate fraternities. I don't hate drinking. I don't hate drugs. I don't hate networking. I don't hate partying, or male camaraderie, or fun, or any other ephemeral symbolic virtue/excuse that "Greek" organizations have clung to (with less efficacy each year) for generations. But I do...

I was never really a frat guy. Fortunately, at Wesleyan (where there are less than five frats, which are currently inactive while they are being forced to co-educate) I never had to be. I say this in direct counterpoint to many of my friends from Texas who go...

I have been attending Houston's Free Press Summer Fest for four years. Since 2011, I have been making the yearly trek from my suburban home in Spring, Texas to downtown's Eleanor Tinsley Park to take in the best two days of music that Houston has to offer. I originally went...

Smells like Nostalgia: A Look at the Nirvana Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction

(1) Comments | Posted April 24, 2014 | 9:48 PM

April 10 marked the fourteenth annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, and despite classic rockers who most can't believe aren't already in the hall (Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oats, Cat Stevens, and the E Street Band) and America's favorite corporation still masquerading as a band (KISS) on...
