November 15, 2011 11:00 amComments Off
The golden gates of heaven sit on clouds high above an aesthetically classical courtroom. A golden staircase leads down to the courtroom floor, where actors and audience are level with each other. The courtroom has an air of prestige, but the off-white curtains encompassing the theater are cut imperfectly, as if embarrassed to be curtains in purgatory and not in heaven. Read more ›

Coldplay  listeners in constant confusion
I am not a music critic, nor am I an expert on the music industry; I am just a listener and a fan. So it might be best to call this article a discussion rather than the daunting and ever more important title of ‘review’. Coldplay and I have had an on again off again relationship for years now, but right when I was starting to understand their mixed messages, they throw me a curveball.
