You can get a pint of Brooklyn Brewery’s flagship lager in Australia, Belgium, France, Brazil and Japan. Or in Kentucky, Ohio or Texas.

Confused Immigrants on a Wire

Birds on a wire today. Starlings, of course.When out with the dogs in winter, we often see large flocks of starlings, often with cowbirds and blackbirds mixed in, winging down to settle on cut-over corn fields and soy rakes, huddled on the lee side of shed roofs, and even settling on roads in order to make use of the warmth radiating up from the black tarmac.Believe it or not, the more than 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are direct descendents of approximately 100 b...

A corporation has teams of marketers, designers, researchers, and business experts focused on creating the most profit for the least amount of expenses. A small business, on the other hand, is your local mom-and-pop store with one or two part-time employees not very knowledgeable on the products the store features. Larger companies generally have ...

Review: volca modular takes on creative synthesis in a small package

Can KORG take modular patching and Buchla-inspired synthesis, and squeeze it into a $200 instrument that’s still accessible to synth newcomers and experts alike? We go deep with the new $199 KORG volca modular to find out. To grasp what this cute little box is about, we turn to veteran music tech journalist Francis Preve. Francis has worked across the industry as a sound designer, so he’s got the expertise – but he’s also an experienced teacher, meaning he’s able to translate that expertise to...

KORG volca modular and volca drum are real – and now we’ve got details

Some things are too good, or too improbable, to be true. Apparently that doesn’t apply to KORG’s volca series. Because if the ultra-compact, affordable modular and drum were exactly what you wished for, well – they’re here. These will look familiar, because images of the top panels of these two pieces of kit hit the Internet in December. The funny thing was, a lot of people responded with “oh there’s no way that modular could be real.” Guess again. The newest volcas are a modeled drum/percu...

Alice Darr and Kevin Gavin

Guitarist Mundell Lowe was a wonderful arranger with impeccable taste and intimate elegance. This was true of his big-band writing and those for small groups. Recently I posted on his Columbia albums for Joe Mooney (1963), his TV Action Jazz albums (1959), the score for Satan in High Heels (1961), Jerri Winters Again (1962) and J.J. Johnson's Broadway Express (1965). Two more beautiful examples of Mundy's touch were albums for singers in 1962—Alice Darr's I Only Know How to Cry and Kevin Gavin'...

L.A.’s earthquake early warning system can save lives, but what about the rest of California?

With considerable fanfare, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti started the year by trumpeting a cellphone app that will instantly notify users in Los Angeles County when an earthquake of 5.0 or bigger begins to hit. The pilot program, officially unveiled Jan. 3, can provide crucial seconds — even dozens of seconds — for people to duck and cover or otherwise take potentially lifesaving actions. Dubbed ShakeAlertLA, it’s the first earthquake early warning system of its type in the country. But that al...

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater.
