Have Mercy Wants to Make the Best of It But Does Not Know How

Although Have Mercy’s 2017 album is entitled Make the Best of It, it hardly centers around hopeful, uplifting themes that resonate with the idea of “making the best” of a bad situation. Contrarily, the emphasis of the album is on the painful nostalgia that comes with living solely in the past. Like Have Mercy’s previous...

You’ve heard of the blue bloods, the lottery picks, and the hall-of-fame coaches in men’s college basketball. And most recently, you’ve probably been alerted to the FBI Investigation that has rocked the sport.

The summer of 1995 saw an ugly divorce between Prince and Warner Brothers Records, with whom Prince had signed in 1978. While under contract with Warner Brothers, Prince released several classic records, including Purple Rain and Sign O’ the Times, and became one of the world’s biggest stars.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Wheeeeel of Fortune! Deal or No Deal?

There was barely a minute left in the first half of the Super Bowl when Jake Delhomme threw a bomb downfield, Carolina fans were hoping with all they had that their star receiver could tie up the game before the half. Sure enough, on the other end of the pass, Steve Smith eluded his defender…

There’s a certain set of neuroses associated with playing music that will resonate with anyone who’s ever picked up an instrument: that during practice you’ll out yourself as incompetent to your bandmates, that the inevitable screw-up will happen during a critical performance, that eventually you’ll encounter a part that is simply beyond your ability, etc….

American cinema has always been defined by its ability to innovate. Westworld, a small sci-fi movie released in 1973 starring Yul Brynner, changed the way movies would be made forever. It was the first film to use two-dimensional computer images, which would eventually evolve into what we now call CGI, or Computer Generated Images. Westworld…

I remember feeling nervous excitement on the morning of December 2, 2010,  as I waited for the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (more commonly known as FIFA) to  announce the countries that would host the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups. In the months leading up to their ultimate decision, FIFA’s Board of Directors had…

As a native Californian, there are few things I find more pleasurable than fresh, locally sourced produce. Just thinking about leafy, fresh-picked collard greens warms my soul; as far a social movements go, the Farm to Table movement is near and dear to my heart.

HOT 1. Steve Smith Sr. The former Carolina Panthers wide receiver promised “blood and guts” if he ever got the opportunity to face the Panthers as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.
