A Little Story About A Story

Back when I had the energy and resources to update AMJ every day, I was constantly flipping through a very old copy of Party Out of Bounds, trying to construct memories of things I’ve never known, trying to put across the same feeling the book conveys: place, time, youth. I was working three jobs and […]

It Might Get Loud…

Having spent the last seven years of my life working in libraries, it should come as no surprise that I’m rather fond of them. Especially when they have cool stuff like this.

White Tornado: Athens Snowstorm

Athens Time Stamp: A Ziona Post

By Ziona Kocher DISCLAIMER: Jordan Stepp, the amazing head of AthensMusicJunkie, is referred to as the Bosslady/Boss throughout this piece. I do this to annoy her. Nearly all descriptions of her cruelty have been exaggerated (except for the Glare ‘o’ Death. That thing is scary). While she does often tease, she’s one of my best […]
