Like mom (and pop) would make (01/28/10)
Small businesses are the heart and soul of America. And favorites among those industries are the mom and pop restaurants we all love. The smells of coffee, apple pie and grease mix with friendly greetings as you pass through their doors. They are the diners, the little breakfast nooks, the small town luncheonettes, the rib joints and the neighborhood delicatessens that dot the countryside...

The pop leanings of Nashville leave those of us desiring good rock or country rock looking elsewhere. Places like Austin, Chicago and St. Louis have provided their share of quality acts over the years...
'Fireball' flames out before there's even a spark (01/28/10)
Sometimes a film has a premise so overtly ridiculous that it lends to the allure of it and makes it something special to watch. When I read about a film that mixed ultra-violence and basketball, I was onboard. And while I knew it wouldn't be an Oscar contender, I thought it might be interesting...
Stockberger lights up stage in 'The Foreigner' (01/28/10)
INDIANAPOLIS -- When I first started acting in plays, one of the first things I would do when I got my script was count my lines. That way, you see, I would be able to impress people with my mad memorization skills. When I played Countess Aurelia in "The Madwoman of Chaillot" my senior year in high school, I had something like 400 lines ... some of them paragraphs long...
