With the premiere of the new song "Eden," singer-songwriter Alexa Wilding is providing us with the melodic track we need to push through the day we thought was Friday but turns out is Thursday. "Eden" is the first single off Wolves, Alexa's third album to be released on Tiny Prism Records, due out in September 2016. Co-produced with Tom Beaujour, the bones of the album were recorded live in just one day, with Tim Foljahn on lead guitar, Jeremy Wilms on bass and Brian Kantor...
If you haven’t heard what’s going on in North Carolina yet, get your torches and pitchforks ready, because it’s a dooooooozy.It all began when the city of Charlotte, NC passed an anti-discrimination ordinance, set to go into effect on April 1st, that would include “sexual orientation and gender identity” under the umbrella of the city’s anti-discrimination law.

It was taken with one of those old disposable cameras that were popular in the early 2000s.

Our street can be seen in the background.I like to call this "the first selfie," even though I know self-portraits have been around...
