Salt Lake City is getting some North Shore Ice Crystals…From Our Len Burgess!!!!

Len writes-

Back in the beginning of the year an architectural designer, Catherine Widgery purchased a lot of my macro photos of ice crystals that she found on my Flickr site, ‘Photoholic1’. She used them, combined with lightning graphics, into large etched-glass windows for a transit station platform, elevator enclosure and stairs in Salt Lake City, Utah which is now under construction. Here’s a few photos of the work being done. -Len Burgess

Check out some of the great projects that Catherine has done and is designing for future contracts.

Chicago-born, Harvard-educated, George Rosen, now lives in Gloucester, Massachusetts. As a journalist, he has reported on West Africa and Mexico, writes frequently for the Boston Globe’s op-ed page, has done radio commentary for WBUR, and worked as a political speechwriter. Rosen’s novel, Black Money, was called by Publishers Weekly “a strong study of power that corrupts and idealism that persists,” and his short stories have appeared in Harper’s, the Yale Review, and the Harvard Review. He has received the Frank O’Connor Memorial Award and fellowships from the Artists Foundation and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

The Immanence of

God in the Tropics

Tales of soccer, death, hot water, lost love, and the presence of God in Africa, Mexico, and the coast of New England

“The stories in George Rosen’s collection take place in unlikely sites under unsure conditions; they treat with respect odd people — a man somewhere between a bum and a crazy, another who’s afraid of words, a reticent couple who practice reckless abandon. The unadorned sentences often reach a conclusion whose truth makes you catch your breath. This unpretentious book is the work of a master.”
–Edith Pearlman, Winner, 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction

Megan Burtt on Local Music Seen

That’s what award-winning, Denver-based singer / songwriter Megan Burtt, says on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes, which premieres tomorrow night at 6:30pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.

Megan was kind enough to stop in and tape a show last week after having played to a sold out crowd at the Old Sloop Coffeehouse.  Her writing is straight from her heart and gut. Her songs take you away and when you return you’re a different person. You don’t want to miss this show!

Those of you familiar with Local Music Seen know that Allen starts every show with a song, and for this one, he premiered a brand new song that doesn’t even have a title.  (Megan told me her idea for a name, but we won’t reveal that until after the show airs.)  Here’s a video of that song.  Leave a comment using the link below to share any ideas you have for a name (See more videos by Allen Estes here)

You can see Allen at Jalapenos tonight sitting in with KBMG for Dan King, who’s in Seattle.

More excellent music all week long.  See the complete live music Schedule here.
