We are at 50th anniversary of the halfway point between when James Brown and his band recorded his classic “Cold Sweat” in May, 1967 and when he released it in July a few months later, so now is a good time to revisit it. Why revisit an old song from the 1960s? Because without it there would be no hip hop. Yep. Well one of the many factors but a very important one in the evolution of music. Not just because it was sampled by pioneering hip hop and drumRead More

Master of Thoughtful, Feelgood TV

English teacher and guest blogger Jimi Beavis provides some thoughts on Master Of None. I have nearly finished the second season of Netflix’s Master of None and it is already making me think about it when I am far away from a position where I can watch it.

With more countries all over the world making marriage equality legal, one must begin to wonder “when is it our turn?” I mean, America (out of all places) managed to pass the bill even with 83% of the population being Christians.
