The Second Coming of Brad Hoshaw and the Seven Deadlies

When Brad Hoshaw and the Seven Deadlies released their debut album five years ago, I thought for sure it was going to be a breakthrough.

That record was pure bliss. If you haven’t heard it (and apparently not many of you have), it’s worth seeking out. It’s as good — if not better than — most records that came out in 2009, loaded with heart-wrenching hook-laden folk-rock songs that once heard...

The Life of a (Real) Modern-Day Poet

Just the word “poet” makes some people’s eyes roll in exasperation and disbelief. “Who does he think he is, calling himself a poet? Is he serious?” To those same people, anyone who would classify himself as a poet is very likely a self-involved, deluded, pretentious asshole who thinks he has all the answers and can even make those answers rhyme. Either that, or he’s a university professor.

Color-blind love

Two bodies in the mirror: 
one's me, the other's you,


with two far different cultures 
some say will bring just strife.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ...

Meyer and fellow colleagues are just some of the many residents that are concerned about the special election to be held in Fremont on February 11.

The Fact and Fiction of Sick Birds Die Easy

The first thing that crossed my mind after watching Sick Birds Die Easy, the new film by Nik Fackler, was wondering how much of it was real and how much was made up.

“I’d say 70 percent is real, and the rest is a narrative,” said Fackler during a conference call that included two of the film’s co-stars. “It’s a mixture of both. The film starts as a documentary and then melts into a narrative...

It Takes a Village

Nebraska Crossing Outlets has been open for a few months, and this being the third week of January, it’s safe to say we’re well past the holiday season. With our Saturday wide open and the holiday crowds (hopefully) gone, we couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than visiting the new shopping Mecca conveniently located between Omaha and Lincoln.

Someone much wiser than me once said that...

Opening Pandora’s Box (and Finding Matt Whipkey Inside)

Is Pandora the new “radio”?

And by that I’m asking, could digital music streaming services such as Pandora replace terrestrial radio stations, especially after car stereos become “internet ready,” allowing drivers to punch in a website from their dashboards?

While I can’t answer that in this column, I can say that Pandora at least gives unsigned musicians a glimmer of hope that a stranger...
