1/12 Live From Studio A: Superior Siren

Laura Sellner debuted Superior Siren as a solo project in Duluth in 2012 expanding her atmospheric, eerie folk sound by adding cellist Rachel Gobin, bassist Nyssa Krause, and drummer Emma Deaner in 2015.

Unless you have a job that lets you travel to many exotic locations, it's hard to meet enough different kinds of people to really expand your horizons.

Of course, readers already know that one of the best ways to do that is through books.

Buzzy

Buzzy was left behind in a foreclosed house and brought to the shelter.  He is a short stocky, male mixed breed, guessed to be about 3-4 yrs. He gets along with older children, adults, and cats. He does well with other dogs (outside playing and greeting,) but not living with them. He definitely wants to be boss.

The ice ain't nice

Apostle Island National Lakeshore

There are a lot of things that are bad even though you can't tell by looking at them.

People, for example.  Novels. And ice. 

For example, the ice surrounding the mainland ice caves at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is abysmal.

In fact, it's so  irredeemably bad the only hope for opening the ice caves this year (they last opened in 2015)  is if a northeasterly wind blows it all out "to sea"?  "to lake"?  and new ice can form.

Bad ice is dangerous ice.
