Getting To Know: Eric Savage

Getting To Know: Eric Savage

Eric Savage is a bit of an enigma in the Manhattan music scene. You never know when he might show up at an open mic night or jam session. He simply appears, guitar in one hand and beer in the other, ready to entertain. He’s a bit like Darkwing Duck, if Drake Mallard were a rock star instead of a superhero.

I sat down with the Starving In Style guitarist to get the inside scoop on his…

Co-Writer: Judson Packard

Much ado has been made about Neil Patrick Harris slipping into the high heeled boots of Hedwig as the rock musical prepares for its Broadway debut, but Hedwig herself graced Aggieville last week, so fully did Evan Tuttle embrace the starring role.

Compline: Lana Del Rey – West Coast

Please be more basic

Please be more basic

CollegeHumor’s Favorite Funny Videos

Being basic sounds absolutely fantastic. You get to hold down a job, go on wholesome vacations, you probably pay all your bills, you are relatively stable, psychologically, and all your flaws are really just quirks. Let someone else be the poetic drama-queen bad-bitch striving to make her life into a reality show. You seem to have things figured out, and I…

Time for you & time for me

Time for you & time for me

 

From time to time I’ve been overheard mumbling “April is the cruellest month.” So far it’s been my only nod to NaPoWriMo or National Poetry Month or whatever you call it. It’s the first line of T.S. Eliot’s The Wasteland. I was introduced to this poem by a girl I used to be into. Naturally therefore, I was into it too. Here’s the opening line

April with his showers sweet

April with his showers sweet

To hell with blog post titles. I can’t do it. I give up. They win.

I’ve been on a tear lately.

My new bff Hanif Kureishi told me that creative writing courses were a waste of time. I did learn some useful things from them, about the importance of creating a full scene, of fleshing out a character by envisioning the details and…

Field Day Jitters

No matter how talented and dedicated the rock stars may be, a local music scene is nothing without the fans. No Manhattan band understands that better than the Field Day Jitters.
