U.S. Royalty — Mirrors

Vital folk celebrating the Midwest


Folk

Stephen Carradini
One of the best love letters I’ve ever heard to the beauty of the Midwest is Rich Mullins’ “Calling Out Your Name” (who, despite being a solidly Christian artist, counts indie mainstay The Mountain Goats among his many fans). Quickly climbing the list is “Equestrian” by U.S. Royalty, off their new album, “Mirrors.”

Flag this

Enlist in ‘Captain America,’ the final and finest superhero adventure of a summer season flooded with them.


Features

Rod Lott
“Captain America: The First Avenger” is Marvel’s third — third! — superhero movie just this summer, following “Thor” and “X-Men: First Class,” so it would be reasonable to expect audiences to be burned out on men in tights.

VOTD: America experiences Iceage

Want to watch Danish punks bowl?

Scandinavian punk bands are soooooooo in right now.

Most notably, the aggressive, teenaged Iceage is currently traversing our United States, inspiring kids to do dumb stuff to each other. See for yourself in this video, wherein the band climbs on rocks, tosses rocks in rivers, bowls, grabs barbed wires, and throws traffic cones at each other, wrestles, and other dumb teenaged stuff.

I know: I kid, I kid. But seriously I do like this song a bunch. Enjoy.

Paseo power!

The arts district is getting a lot of love.

So we may be a land of "diabeetus"-plagued, uninsured drivers, but dammit if we don't know how to create a thriving, colorful arts district.

The Paseo has just been named by Travel & Leisure as one of America's most beautiful neighborhoods. I have to agree — the colorful buildings, locally owned shops and restaurants and fun vibe (the area just held its annual Fairy Ball last weekend) has made the Paseo a wonderful place to call home for the past five years. And, it's not just a pretty place. Forbes recently named the district as one of the top transformed neighborhoods. And and the real estate in the area is steady and climbing.

Doesn't that make you want to live there? It does, right? And lucky for you, I have a hot tip on an amazing brick tudor home from 1929 that is looking for a new family. It's potty-trained and everything.
