The New Urban Roots – After the Cameras are Gone, the Soul Remains

The New Urban Roots – After the Cameras are Gone, the Soul Remains

  This afternoon I got a chance to take a sneak peek at the newly renovated Urban Roots, which has undergone a beautiful makeover. What has not changed at all, however, is the heart and soul that defines Urban Roots. My original plan was to meet artists Adam & Kizzie there for lunch, but we were not aware that Urban Roots [...]

Why I Wanted to Fight Richard Sherman, And Why I Disagree that He’s a Thug

That Awkward, Tragic Moment of Injustice at The 2014 Grammy Awards

“Her” Reflects a Remarkably Real Relationship

“Her” Reflects a Remarkably Real Relationship

The movie “Her” asks for the ultimate in suspension of disbelief, as the audience is expected to buy into the reality of a romantic relationship between a man and an operating system.
