"It's hard not to be romantic about baseball," Oakland A's General Manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) says in the new movie, "Moneyball."
Hi there! Candi here. Alright, you got me, my name isn't really Candi. But behind this mysterious alias and accompanying silhouette, I'm one of you. I'm a student walking amongst you on the sidewalks, sitting next to you in class and beating you out of that parking spot. Nice to finally meet you!
I'm here to talk to you about the "L" word. You know what word I'm referring to. But first let's clarify that this is not an advice column (however if you'd like my not-so-expert advice anyway, feel free to tweet me- Candi_Dates_). This is an observation, discussion, inferential column regarding common woes of the dating world. We can figure this out together, people! Have an idea you'd like me to talk about? Let me know!
Smoke and heat loomed over an energetic crowd Friday night at Sokol Underground where Tech N9ne was set to take the stage for the first of his two-day concert series here in Omaha.
Avey Tare's first solo album isn't quite what you would expect out from a crucial member of Animal Collective. Then again, you never get what you'd expect from the genre-defying experimental group. For Tare's first album from the late 1990's, he recruited friend Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) to beat the drums. Nine albums later, they are still creating music. Panda has gone on to record three solo albums with a fourth coming soon, including the highly acclaimed (and 2007's best) "Person Pitch." It's no wonder Tare finally decided to try it himself, and the final product is the challenging "Down There."
