The music of John Williams

Written by Katy England

The soundtrack of our lives

ORONO Music is a universal language that pervades our lives, from radio, television and movies to the personal soundtracks we put together with our own media. But one man has dominated film, crafting music that resonates with our subconscious so intensely that just hearing a note or two can transport you back to the moment you first heard it. On Feb. 1, at the Collins Center for the Arts in Orono, Bangor Symphony Orchestra will be treating their audience to 'The Pops: The Music of John Williams.

Cooped up

Written by Katy England

Dealing with the stir crazies

Winter hit us hard. No sooner did the calendar skip past Dec. 21 than we got smacked with an ice storm followed by a couple of snow storms. Massive power outages, huge dig out efforts, driving and travel hassles.

Testing your resolve

Written by Katy England

There are jokes about New Year's resolutions. How quickly they fade, how silly we are to make them, and all that. But there is a reason for wanting a fresh start a chance to say, I can make myself a better person. The first of the year is a great mental jumping off point a blank page and a new date to write on your checks (people still write checks, right? I mean every once in a while).

So here are some gentle ways of remaking yourself this New Year. Because, like you, I haven't won every resolution battle I've started but I still think there is great worth in trying. So here are some ideas, a little off the beaten path physical mental fiscal and spiritual are all things that we can maybe try to be resolute about.  I felt that breaking them into those categories made sense. They overlap in many ways, so don't feel like something is out of bounds just because you can't fit it in the box.

My contribution for the Maine Edge year-end roundup

Written by Mike Dow

I've had oodles of fun putting together contributions for The Maine Edge this year. The article that generated the largest response was my interview with Sig Hansen (Maine Edge July 17,2013), captain of the fishing vessel 'Northwestern' and reluctant star of Discovery Channel's enormously popular 'Deadliest Catch.' The show's ninth season finale on July 30 drew nearly 3 million viewers, easily winning the night for Discovery.  

In the interview, Sig revealed that he was initially against the idea of allowing his life's work (he comes from a long line of proud fisherman) to be cheapened by turning it into a reality television show. 'After talking it over with a couple of guys on the fleet, we thought it might be a decent tribute to the fleet. It was originally going to air for just one year and I thought, Why not?' We had no clue that it would still be going nine years later. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into,' Hansen told me in a phone interview conducted a few weeks prior to the season's conclusion.

Allen Adams Year In Review

Written by Allen Adams

Chuck Klosterman

I'm a pop culture nut. As such, I've been a huge fan of author Chuck Klosterman for quite some time. His clever, cutting insights regarding the world of popular culture music, movies, sports, television have had a significant impact on who I am both as a consumer of that culture and as a writer in my own right.

Katy England Year in Review

Written by Katy England


Yeah, I was as surprised as anyone when I was able to interview Ke$ha. I'm seldom very nervous about interviews, but I was downright jittery about this one. How about a little background: I didn't know who Ke$ha was. I mean, I'd heard of her in a vague sense. I knew she was incredibly popular and that was about the extent of my knowledge. You have to understand, I don't go out. I do not party like a rock star or enjoy hangovers so I needed to research this one. So I did, and several episodes of 'My Crazy Beautiful Life' later I was hooked.

Going Bowling 2013

Written by Allen Adams

A casual fan predicts all 35 bowl games

The college football regular season has come to a conclusion. It's all about the bowl games now 35 of them in all. That means 70 different teams are looking to end their season with a victory. I tried to predict them all last year with some success.
