Hawkins 'Best Of'
an easy sedative
To the uninitiated, a glance at the cover of Sophie B.
Hawkins' Best of album may give a false impression. The front cover shows
Hawkins lying down in the middle of railroad tracks, holding a guitar in
a sweater and blue jeans. People unfamiliar with Hawkins' style of music
may get the idea that she is a folksy rocker along the lines of Lucinda
Williams or Sarah McLachlan. They would be wrong.
Seven-year wait good for Stage
High school students all over America pick up musical
instruments and form groups of three or four that they call bands. The
vast majority of these get swept away with similar memories of wild adolescence,
and some are even matched up with one or two memorable live performances.
'Raw' in charisma dilemma
My God. Kane is hideous without a mask. He's an abomination
that should never show his face in public. He's horribly disfigured. He
looks like, he looks like, like ... a bald guy.
Web pages effortless with 'wizzywig'
Everyone wants to make Web pages, but choosing a software
package to work with is arguably just that: a matter of choice. Hardcore
coders want to only write code. Newbies want a WYSIWYG (What You See Is
What You Get, pronounced "wizzywig") editor. The trick is to have an editor
and enough basic skills to produce Web pages.
