PNN Correspondent Doc Hoosier went to EvilleCon 2014, and brought back some great pictures and a really awesome four-page essay about it. Even if you've never been to a fandom convention or don't really "get it," this article is an excellent read that helps get your head around "why people do these strange things"

Share it.  Sign it.  Share it again.  The Supreme Court sent a message today to the American people.  It's time we let them know we heard it.

The article that started it all, back in August of 2011, now with 100% more WordPress.  A closer look at the Motor City Motormouth and why for all his bluster and bravado what he really is, is one of the biggest cowards in modern American history.

A beautiful version of a beautiful song.  The stripping away of studio effects and enhancements on this particular take brings a whole new starkness, vulnerability, and grief to a song that was quite beautiful in its more popularly available versions.  Thanks for being a true artist.

The radical segments of both sides of this argument are missing the point and adding to the problem rather than creating a solution.

How misleading language creates one factor in an impotent battle to regain some sanity in the face of gun violence in the US.

Some songs just really get into your heart and head and stay there, maybe not always even welcome. JH brings you some intensely sad (but not always slow and quiet) music from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and three (and a half) other artists.
Nine songs that move me in a very deep and melancholy way.
