The Dirty Projectors From the Mouths of Babies

by Dr. Spin

The Little One loves to go outside. Fortunately, we had the foresight to wire our porch for sound, so we often have the opportunity to appreciate music while hanging out in our backyard. When the weather is good, we’ll turn on the tunes while she blows bubbles or draws chalk scribbles on the concrete.

She is growing increasingly verbal, so she constantly astounds us with her use of plain language to express what is on her mind. I was floored, however, when one afternoon she abruptly stopped her usual outdoor activities to enthusiastically join in with the chorus of this tune…get dirty over at The Pharmacy

Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” Breaks the Spell

by Dr. Spin

Although in many ways, I am still on the fence about the new Daft Punk album, I have to admit I that I am enjoying the controversy that it seems to have stirred up. On the one side, the critics would have people believe that it is the most important album of 2013, but here on the street level it seems that praise for Random Access Memories is very rarely given without some reservation.

At worst, a lot of Daft Punk fans, both old and new, simply don’t care for it… stick with daft and care over at The Pharmacy

Deadmau5 Pushes Us Through the Wall

by Dr. Spin

Music has historically played a role in lightening the emotional burden of work, and as my CrossFit WOD crew becomes more established, I am increasingly aware of the inspirational role that music plays in inspiring people through moments of frustration or intimidation. It’s not too uncommon for an athlete to report that music “got them through” a workout.

I have certainly seen and felt the difference in energy when the music is “not right.” Because I am an album listener, however, I have had to rethink how I present music during our training sessions. For any album to keep attention as a listening experience, it has to have some variety, which often equates into changes in energy that are simply not appropriate for the intensity of a CrossFit workout… read more at the Pharmacy

ArtsGoggle in Fort Worth May 18

ArtsGoggleby Angela Hopkins

On Saturday, May 18 from 4pm to 10pm, the Magnolia Strip in Fort Worth will once again transform into a walk of art.  This time around 90 businesses are participating in ArtsGoggle.  You will see people on the streets and walking in and out of places such as jewelry shops, non-profit centers, SiNaCa (coolest glass blowing show and shop) and hair salons.  But why?  Because the art is inside… and so are the snacks!

Some will hand you information on the business itself, others will ask if you want a roadie out of the keg.  Just go with the element of surprise.  Cruise in and out of each place.  Carry a cold beverage and soak up visual art as well as live music, pleasing all your senses at once.  Continue reading

The Davies Brothers Are 3 of 1

3of1aby Erica Guajardo

In families sometimes, artistic talents are pushed with in a group of siblings so that a bond can develop which will help the progression of the group grow.   Since I have started writing, I have come across a number of families which push their artistic talents together as group, so that each member can develop a name for themselves.  But one particular band of brothers whom stood out to me was the Davies Brothers.  Joshua, Isaac, and Jerrod Davies are a group of brothers, which are more commonly known as 3of1.  What makes them different compared to the other groups that I have come across is that they have developed a business aspect towards art which allow them to tackle any project which is thrown their way.  Continue reading
