Melissa Manchester Looks Back at 1985 and Her Synthpop Experiments

None The 1980s weren't particularly kind to the singer/songwriters who'd emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The recording studio became the producer's fiefdom and the acoustic music that had characterized the work of people like Joni Mitchell and Carole King became passé. Artists affected by these changes either attempted to move with the times or, like Laura Nyro, recorded far less frequently. Acoustic or semi-acoustic pop music was still around, but performers such as Suzanne Vega and...

Cornelia Street Café, A Hub Of Greenwich Village’s Artistic Ferment, Shuts Down

For almost 42 years, the café’s basement performance space had offered a stage and support for jazz, theatre, and other offbeat and experimental artists, from the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra to Suzanne Vega to Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues. But the rent is now literally 77 times what it was in 1977, and proprietor Robin Hirsch says he just can’t afford that much. — The New York Times

How to find your purpose in life: 12 powerful exercises to help you discover purpose and passion

Happy blogiversary! Twelve years ago today, I launched a humble little blog about personal finance — this blog, Get Rich Slowly. It was meant as a way for me to share the things I was learning as I dug out of debt. It turned into so much more. For the next couple of weeks, I’m on the road in the southeastern U.S., speaking to people about personal finance and meeting with readers. This morning, for instance, I spoke to the 76 people attending Camp FI in Spring Grove, Virginia. My topic? No surpr...

How The Soundtrack Of Love, Simon Gets Teen Movie Music Romantically Right

Sweeping synths, bouncing drum kits, and tight, ornamental guitar riffs – moments into watching Love, Simon, I was immediately swept up in nostalgic memories from my teen years. The perfect movie soundtrack is something that I’ve been fascinated with since I was in middle school. Back when Tumblr was at its peak, I spent countless hours creating my own soundtracks to John Hughes’ movies with modern synth-pop songs. I would search the internet for the perfect beat or melody that I felt captured ...

Discs To Digital: The Strange History Of Music Formats

While streaming has become the dominant form of music consumption, the road to get here was a complex and varied one.

Cancer Sun 1st House

You are becoming comfortable in a leadership role. You discover personal power by knowing how to react when you are caught off guard. Your central purpose is to demonstrate gentle integrity. You shine by finding strength in vulnerability. Coming into your own requires letting your sensitive side show through. Attaining self-realization means knowing the difference between what is worth defending and when you are merely being defensive. Being yourself means that you are the leader of your family,...

How Good Are Your Headphones? This 150-Song Playlist, Featuring Steely Dan, Pink Floyd & More, Will Test Them Out

Photo via Adamantios at Wikimedia Commons Back in the Mad Men heyday of high-end home stereo, audiophiles could buy records full of sound-but-not-exactly-music, specifically engineered to test the limits of — or simply show off — their personal systems. Less technically obsessive but still proud hi-fi owners could drop the needle on one of the albums known almost as well for the richness of its sound as the artistry of its music, such as Frank Sinatra’s In the Wee Small Hours or Charles Mingus’...

Ears Wide Open: Rosie Tucker

Rosie Tucker is a singer-songwriter, activist, poet and bass player in the L.A. post-rock band Gypsum. She’s also somebody who sees the inherent fissures — literal and emotional — in sunny Southern California. She speaks directly to them in her new single “Fault Lines,” an ode to the duality of having a golden state of mind while perched precarious on the edge. “California aches / In her tectonic plates / She waits to make a break into the sea / Crying for a quake / Mourning empty lakes / But cr...
