Caught The Civil Wars at their Portland show las month, just down the street at a renovated funeral home called The Woods. Great, sold out show. I think a lot of us felt like we were seeing them “before” they became huge. They were terrific. Sometimes it’s obvious a band has peaked with their first […]

I can hear the critics chiming now style is content…I […]

“One of the things I love about this place is the ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) methodology. We try to create an atmosphere here where creative people are free to share their opinions about things. If somebody has an idea about a shot, they say it.

So when I was a kid I played the Tuba. Our high school band was renowned throughout the state of Texas as one of the best. We were forced to practice for hours. I played the Tuba and took lessons from a local classical tubist. We really got into it. Our hero was a guy […]
