RECKONING MY LOVE FOR PRINCE


For years, for decades, Prince was the pop artist I thought about the most and listened to the most. I have thousands of memories associated with his music, thousands of theories, thousands of feelings. When he died last April, those Prince-based emotions suddenly increased in weight. It was painful to keep them in my mind. So I wrote a book—“
Dig If You Will the Picture”—that was a passion project, a book whose velocity was intended to speed me away from the grief I felt at Prince’s death. 

Vintage looks make new business


“Vintage fashion is unique, it’s beautiful, and it’s sustainable,” said Georgia-native Erica Jarman, founder of the Starland District shop, House of Strut.

Jarman is among an emerging group of local entrepreneurs, fashion designers, and small business owners opening stores around Savannah dedicated to providing both quality, one-of-a-kind clothing; some are stressing the importance of buying vintage in order to not contribute to the “fast fashion” zeitgeist.

 


Lindsay Ell, Kristian Bush on How John Mayer Influenced Ell's New EP

Before she could get down to the business of working on a record, singer-guitarist Lindsay Ell was given an odd assignment and a set of rules by her new producer, Kristian Bush. The Sugarland co-founder instructed the Alberta, Canada, native to isolate herself and re-record her favorite album on her own, as an exercise in understanding how the songs work and what elements she preferred to hear in a production.

 “I don’t believe in regret, of course, so I don’t wish I had  followed another path,” the self-described “legendary  groupie” said the other day.

Love Letter to Catherine Trammel of ‘Basic Instinct’ and Sharon Stone


I love bitches. Or, rather, I love the women in film that we have come to call bitches; unrepentant, confident, cunning women. We call them bitches because that’s our word for when a female character behaves anywhere near as badly as the men on screen who have sex and murder and act without emotion—the men we often call anti-heroes. My love of these characters doesn’t come as a surprise, though; in a world where we are often apologetic and attempting to make ourselves smaller, it’s so freeing to watch a woman behave badly.

Cosmopolitan Emma Cline by ElizaThe Girls is an engrossing, beautifully written account of one young woman's association with a hippie cult, loosely inspired by Charles Manson's infamous Family and the grisly murders they committed in 1969. 

When did you first become interested in the Manson murders?
