Michigander, a common term used to describe… you … Continue reading Michigander & Leland Blue– What Midland, MI Brings You

Bay Faction- On Jasper and Pop Music

Interview conducted on 5 Jan 2018 with members James McDermott, Kris Roman To be entirely honest, I never know how bands are going to speak to me as I am interviewing them.

Baby Powdered Dreams

Within the wild parade of my issues, nightmares and terrors rule after hours, keeping everything out of check. I’ve always had very vivid dreams and semi-frequent nightmares, but over the past year, they’ve become more noticeable. I’ll wake up out of breath, panic breaking through the blanket of sedatives and anti-anxiety medications. They’re awful and I wouldn’t wish my sleeping disorders on my worst enemy, … Continue reading Baby Powdered Dreams

We’re standing in the crowd with a few other people who got there early. … Continue reading IRONTOM: oddity at its finest
