web-posted Wednesday, February 25, 2015
A world away from Alaska, music is being made that echoes inspiration absorbed here years ago. Songwriter and performer Frank Solivan no longer calls Alaska home, but the connection between his band Dirty Kitchen and the state is strong.

Bob Dylan, American Idol
web-posted Wednesday, February 25, 2015
In his new record "Shadows in the Night," Bob Dylan covers a collection of pop standards drawn from the Sinatra catalog. It's not the first time Dylan has released a record entirely of other people's songs. His 1992 album "Good as I Been to You" gives brilliant new life to folk standards like "Sittin' on Top of the World" and the improbable "Froggie Went a-Courting." I expected him to do the same for the Sinatra repertoire in "Shadows in the Night." This should have been a remarkable record. Instead, it's unlistenable.
Opera to go opens 'Cunning Little Vixen'
web-posted Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Leo Janá ek's opera "The Cunning Little Vixen" ("P íhody li ky Bystrou ky") is somewhat difficult to describe, said Opera to Go's artistic director William Todd Hunt. Based on a serialized comic novella by Rudolf T snohlídek (illustrated by Stanislav Lolek) that first appeared in a Czech newspaper in the 1920s, the opera features multiple roles for animals, including the vixen of the title as well as a fox, badger, frog and mosquito, among many other creatures. Depending on the production, it can be whimsical and cartoonish, or more serious and philosophical.

The explosive popularity of craft beer since the mid-1980s has not only fueled jobs and has become a viable economic engine across the United States, it's driven improvements in the various mediums that craft beer is packaged in. Breweries have choices when they start up and eventually expand when it comes to how their artisan products are delivered to thirsty customers.

A Cold...Again? This calls for Super Soup
web-posted Wednesday, February 25, 2015
I cannot believe this but I have another cold. This is the second one in about two months. It is very rare for me to get sick, but to have two colds in such a short time is ridiculous. I'm such a big baby when I'm sick and I want to be taken care of and pampered. This includes massages, treats of all sorts, and lots of orange juice brought to me while I suffer silently in bed. Ok, not so silently if you ask Captain Grant.
