Snacking on Strung Finger of an Old Dear

I was going to title this post Snacking on Oh Dorian, but that felt sort of cannibalistic and wrong. Just wrong.

Not downloading this new song by Oh Dorian would be a mistake.

Nevermind that I feel like I’m stalking the woman, but how can you not do so. Whenever I hear that Oh Dorian is playing, or see it on her myspace page, I am there (well, as much as I can be). From the first moment I heard her voice, I’ve wanted to hear more. There is something haunting about her voice, something that stays with you long after the show is over. I’ve been humming Happy Hookah (the “side B” to her Strung Finger of an Old Dear ep) ever since I heard it one night in a bar at the end of her set. I’m glad to finally have it in my iTunes.

I love how different Strung Finger of an Old Dear is from Oh Dorian’s other songs. She promised that it would be. I’ve only listened to it a few times, but I am greatly anticipating the full record. If you haven’t already gotten your FREE copy of these two songs, what are you waiting for?

Snacking on Music – And What A Weekend Was Had!

College Hill Corridor was definitely busy this weekend.

I used to be someone who said that there was nothing to do in Macon.

There is always someone trying to keep us on top of what’s going on, whether it is NewTown Macon, the 11th Hour, MFood and Culture or little old me with this blog, and we want this community to get out and DO SOMETHING…

Snacking on Movies in the Park

If you are going to watch a movie in the park, there are certain things you should bring.

1. A blanket or chair. The ground is wreckage on your derrier.
2. Water, especially if you walked up the Orange Street hill to Coleman Hill. If you have a cooler, cocktails are appropriate.
3. Snacks. Believe it or not, two hours is a long time to not snack on something.

In the park watching Lovely By Surprise, with Carrie Preston. It is a weird, brilliant film. The story is about Marion, a writer who is going through a creative crisis and what happens when one of the characters in her story escapes from the pages. To say anything else would take away the loveliness of art over tragedy.

You should have been here.
