Whether you know him by name or not, French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier is responsible for some of the most defining moments in pop-culture, and fashion, of the past few decades.

The Memphis Country Blues Festival, which first started in 1966, is not as well known as some contemporaries, but was equally significant. Though it had a […]
Yippee! It is AMAZING outside today, and I have to tell you that this weather couldn’t be better timed as far as I’m concerned. I’ve spent the last 36 hours and counting in that special place in hell known as the UPS customer experience, and have needlessly missed a day of work, endured an abysmal […]
