He shivers in the hellish and biting cold of the night even as his entire body is enveloped in his woolen army-issue blanket. Around him sleep six other men, all scattered around a minuscule and choking fire. Scarcely any of the men of this wind-battered men have gathered much sleep. Most have given up on it entirely. The year-old momentarily lets his hand wander from under the blanket, allowing it to grasp the frigid steel and wood of his rifle. He draws it near to him under the blanket and cradles it against his blue wool coat as he would a child.
The man and his rifle had met little action the prior day as the squad stood on picket duty on the far right flank of the Army of the Potomac. The man, muscles shaking like leaves in the wind, wrapped his aching and wind-bitten limbs around the Springfield rifle and attempted to fall away into a frozen sleep and await the coming of the gray dawn the next day.

Directed by Jay Gammill We all go through periods where we just seem to be treading water. Inertia deserts us and life is happening to everyone around us but not to us. Jillian is in just such a phase. Jillian is oh-so-reluctant to do this, but is eventually coerced into it. Not by me, anyway. As she stands in the cramped confines of the truck, handing out samples to all who request one — vanilla, or chocolate one to a customer, no exceptions the things that are driving her life — the motivations that persuaded her to drop out of college and her relationship — are brought into focus and not in a vague, diffuse allegorical way but by the serendipity of bad luck and crushing coincidence.
Not all of it is bad. As the day ends and Nancy shows up at long last, Jillian has had an epiphany and maybe her life is about to change for the better.

November 29, by rontrembathiii 1 Comment Being a parent is a tough job at times. Of course it is rewarding at least half the time though. A parent, especially young parents, should always live in a constant fear of raising their kids to be upstanding citizens by the time they are able to take care of themselves. That is our goal, our job, and should be the hope that we create decent and mature people.
And folks, this twenty something blogger and father of three is absolutely convinced that this can simply NOT happen whilst letting your kids listen to terrible music. That is if we take the time to teach our children what the hell good music truly is.

Standard pop acts are often signed to a major label, and take heavy direction from those labels in both their image and sound.
Indie Pop acts are often signed to independent label and have full creative control over their music and image. Although some indie pop acts are signed on to major labels, they’re used solely for the distribution of their music. The foundations for indie pop started in the early s, when British bands such as Orange Juice and Felt sought to break away from the dark, abrasive sounds which defined Post-Punk by making music that was softer, more romantic and melodic.
British indie pop bands in the ’80s were influenced by ’60s music, jangly guitars and melodic Power Pop structures and especially the music of The Smiths. They often recorded for very small labels such as Sarah Records.
