    After careful review and consideration, Metro Libary will discontinue the Freegal Music service. The last day of service will be July 23, 2018. Music that you have downloaded to your computer directly from the Freegal website is already yours to keep. However, music you have downloaded from the Freegal app must be exported to your computer in order for you to keep it.

    I've started this blog post on Pride and LGBTQIA resources about half a dozen times. In one, I wrote about the history of the Stonewall Riots and the first Gay Pride march almost fifty years ago. In another, I wrote about a friend who was driven out of our small Catholic high school for being bisexual. But they all felt false somehow, not really quite what I was trying to accomplish.

    “Caliphate” is officially over and I hope that Rukmini will take up new projects so that others may benefit from her incredible reporting.  As mentioned in the last episode, the fate of Huzayfah is still uncertain and causing quite a stir in Canada.  Just like “Serial”, it looks like “Caliphate” will continue to reverberate across popular imagination as a story both familiar and terrifying.

    Music was a big part of my childhood. I remember distinctly trying (and failing) to sing the words to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” at four years old. I remember evenings filled with the sounds of Jackson Browne, Elton John, Genesis, Asia, Boston, James Taylor, Carole King, and other music that makes me sound really old. I didn’t realize it until later, but the music I listened to as a kid was totally undergirded by the sound inventions of the Beatles.

    Thinking about my teenage summertime always brings back memories of hiding inside on too hot summer days watching the bright, poppy, candy-colored, wild-eyed, music videos on MTV of the late 1980s and 90s. It brings back memories of David Lee Roth, leading tourists to a beach full of highly tanned bikini girls, and draining out whatever last tiny bit of innocence that the Beach Boys had put into their hit song, California Girls.

    The New York Times dropped a 10 episode podcast in March by Rukmini Calimachi, a respected journalist who reports on ISIS. “Caliphate” has skyrocketed in popularity and now boasts millions of listeners each week.
