Epiphora’s best and worst sex toys of 2018

(She loved it.) I said goodbye to my sweet 17-year-old kitty an...

In some regions of California, former vineyards are being converted to cannabis farms, wine conferences are having sessions about marijuana, and an up-and-coming job is cannabis sommelier. While the wine and marijuana industries are similar in some ways, blending those worlds isn’t always easy. Winegrowers and cannabis cultivators increasingly square off over customers, land and workers. And lingering stigmas have kept some of the state’s wine-growing regions from being open to the newly legaliz...

And I’m certain everybody here knows more than I do about how to use the gear. “But I’m an example...

The Section talks about Les Paul Innovation Award-winner Jackson Browne’s ‘Running on Empty’ at NAMM 2018

Jackson Browne’s “Running On Empty” is widely regarded as one of the greatest-ever live albums, and given its origin story – brand-new songs instead of greatest hits, and recorded not only on stage but also in motel rooms and the back of the tour bus – it earns its lofty reputation. But while Browne, recipient of the Les Paul Innovation Award at the NAMM Show in Anaheim on Saturday, Jan. 27, deserves plenty of credit for writing such now-classic numbers as the title track, “You Love The Thunder,...
