Near-Apocalypse
I caught X-Men: Apocalypse last night. Opening weekend meant the seats were pretty full so I had one of those less than ideal angles for 3-D watching. Still, besides the curious hallucinogenic after-images that appeared whenever the camera moved to a deeper...

Then and Now
Radiohead
and PJ Harvey produced some of the first albums I ever bought. To varying
degrees both musicians have stayed with me. I own just about every full album
each ever released and when both of these artists released a new album this
past month, I snapp...

Marissa Nadler "Strangers"
Gothic folk-singer Marissa Nadler's release "July" was one of my favorite albums of 2014. Eerie, soaked in existential dread, the album still sounds like the soundtrack to a nightmare guest-directed by David Lynch. That's meant as a compliment, by the way. ...

Speculative Leverage
I enjoyed the AoS finale. I was epic, exciting, and built with vigor on the developments of the previous season. After two hours I was still interested in what happens after one more careful reset of the series (one or two every season apparently). Somethin...

I've been waiting for years for a place like this near my town. Great atmosphere, delicious strong coffee, and terrific baristas. Just in time for the summer!

I'd recommend because of the outdoor patio overlooking water street and the drinks. The food was basic, not bad but nothing to write home about.

Good food and efficient waiting staff. We went there on a Monday and encountered a pretty significant line. Portions are filling without being overwhelming.

I liked this place, good selection of books, especially the local interest section, and the cafe is spacious and yet somehow comfortable. This is the kind of place I wish my hometown had.

Decent selection of breakfast dishes. I ordered a French toast made out of blue corn which was two wedges of bread with apple syrup, delicious but not the biggest portion. My wife ordered a short stack of pancakes and was presented with something like the bottom two layers of a wedding cake.

Knowledgable and friendly owner pointed me in the direction of local artists. Good selection for a smaller store.
