    In a newly released interview, Taylor Swift said that she believes “misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." Ms. Swift was heavily criticized by feminists in 2012 when she stated that the word "feminist" was "too strong" a word to describe her. In the last three years, however, her opinions have changed. Today, Ms. Swift believes that feminism is “probably the most important" thing that women can get involved with. According to the young star, inequality is difficult to overcome because “misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." She continued, “So to...

    Broadstreet Review ^ | 5/17/2015 | David M Perkins
    On May 18, 1891, a lovely spring day, at 3 o’clock, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky arrived in Philadelphia without fanfare. There was to be a concert of his music that evening, the last he would conduct in the United States. The dervish tour had begun on April 26 in New York City, where he had been invited by Walter Damrosch, director of the New York Symphony for the grand opening of what was then called “Music Hall” (later to be formally designated as Carnegie Hall). That invitation was supported by no less a luminary than Andrew Carnegie himself. In New York,...

    America has lost a national treasure: B. B. King, whose world-weary voice and wailing guitar lifted him from the cotton fields of Mississippi to a global stage and the apex of American blues, died Thursday in Las Vegas. He was 89. Mr. King married country blues to big-city rhythms and created a sound instantly recognizable to millions: a stinging guitar with a shimmering vibrato, notes that coiled and leapt like an animal, and a voice that groaned and bent with the weight of lust, longing and lost love. “I wanted to connect my guitar to human emotions,” Mr. King said...

    ....Mercury‘s debut was the perfect solo album, in that it became a outlet for his inclination toward non-rock music away from Queen and never threatened his group’s integrity. In fact, it may have gotten Queen back on track. Released on April 29, 1985, Mr. Bad Guy.... Mr. Bad Guy became a labor of love, as Mercury took almost two years to pick and choose which portions of his Queen legacy intrigued him most.

Like Bob Dylan throwing down signs in the video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues," he sent out messages – some of them explicit, as in his anti-nuclear plea "Ronnie Talk To Russia" and the more recent call to the streets, "MARZ" – but scrambled them in ways that made them both poetic and prophetic.

After his uncle, known as “Boo,” taught Campbell to play the guitar as a child, the future star relocated to Albuquerque, N.M., as a teenager, to play in his uncle’s band. In 1958, Campbell formed his own band, the Western Wranglers, and in 1960, he relocated to Los Angeles to become a session musician. Campbell’s debut album, Big Bluegrass Special, was released in 1962 on Capitol Records, but...

    No one can give me a compelling reason why we are forced to change our clocks twice a year. I say we abolish this nonsense, or at least split the difference by half an hour, and leave it alone.
