Sleeping Like a Baby

There’s a conspiracy afoot – to keep us awake! TV, iPods, the barrage of e-mail, cell phone calls and messaging – they’ve all got “important messages” for us, information we can’t do without. Or so we believe. Either way, most of us can’t sleep knowing that there’s something we need to know, but don’t.

In the Stream of Things

If you’ve got a phone these days, you’ve got a music player. Why shlep an iPod or other MP3 player if you want to listen to music on the go?

Looks, Smells and Reads Like Teen Spirit

Today I want to defend one of the most misunderstood creatures on the planet: the teenager. Teenagers get a bad rap, but as I shall demonstrate today, they – or at least their spirit – deserve a lot more credit than we normally give them. Teens are creative – and artistic, especially when it comes to music. It’s no coincidence that popular music of all genres is generally written and performed by teens, or those barely out of that much-maligned life stage.
Teens – ya gotta love ‘em!
