This year's Arts Festival in Pittsburgh is:

. . . shedding for good the familiar yellow pavilions that for years sheltered the visual arts component of the festival, and doing away with the professional curated exhibition, as well. In their place will be 10 huge shipping containers...

"shedding". Get it?

postcrossing is a site that connects postcard-pals across the world.

There's a whole slew of alternative audio tours ready for this summer's vacation. My favorites?

Capitol of Punk - Former Fugazi frontman and all around music legend Ian MacKaye walks you through historic punk spots in our nation's capitol.

Two films I'm trying to find a screening of? Chasin' Gus' Ghost and Who Does She Think She Is?

ReRip is a website to purchase and sell used surf, skate, and snow sporting gear.

Okkervil River has released their fall tour dates. They'll be at Mr. Smalls in Millvale on October 9th.
