On The Road

The Eye Test

I’ve become a believer in the eye test. It goes all the way back to Thomas, the ever-doubtful disciple, who just couldn’t bring himself to believe the testimony of his brothers in faith following the Crucifixion.

1 Comment · Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Cincinnati Rollergirl rookie Sydney “Big Ugly” Greathouse is anything but unsightly. She has an infectious smile to match her peaceful demeanor, which probably has something to do with the fact that she blows off steam by beating up her friends at practice three times a week.   

Comics Unleashed

Local writer/musician Chris Charlton produces some of the freshest new comic books on the market

Ask a non-Cincinnati native of a certain age what they know of the Queen City, and inevitably Pete Rose and the Big Red Machine will come up. Hey, probably better that than the Mapplethorpe controversy, WKRP in Cincinnati or Jerry Springer’s various post-mayoral hijinks.

Kelsey Kalnow started as a collector, grabbing up unique vintage items, stocking her closet and selling what she didn’t want. Today, she’s an entrepreneur; the creative and driving force behind global plus-size clothing line Unholy Hips.

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Once a year Cincinnati likes to let the freaks out — but we’re not talking about Halloween. After a 16-month absence, HorrorHound Weekend descends onto Sharonville promising vis-à-vis celebrity encounters, film screenings, burlesque performances and horror author signings.
