Auto-Mattic Transmission: Rapper Mattic Dispatches from the Left Field

None He flirted with the possibility of success back in 2004, when his rap group, The Others released their debut, Past Futuristic, an album of creamy, slick funk and well-oiled hip-hop grooves. It should have been the breakthrough it promised to be, the album a collection of contender-worthy numbers for the finicky music market. But cursed with indie-label limitations and nearly no press, the band dissolved just shortly before they could release more material for an already recorded full-lengt...

There Is No Indispensable Man

Before my great-grandfather, William M. Hurst, died, he self-published a short memoir of his life entitled Thinking Back. When I first read through it, I enjoyed hearing about his experiences growing up in Utah at the turn of the 20th century, working as a ranger for the U.S. Forest Service for nearly 40 years, raising three children, and even memories of watching Rocky Marciano in the ring. But what really stood out to me, was how my great-grandfather chose to end his memoirs — with an anonymo...
