Kicking it with Chris Kluwe

Written by Allen Adams
An interview with the punter/author/bon vivant

The term 'renaissance man' gets thrown around pretty liberally these days. It seems like all you have to do to get that label is have at least one interest outside your chosen profession; basically, do something beyond just your job at something resembling a high level and boom! Renaissance man.

And then you've got someone like Chris Kluwe.

Brave few

The Maine State Police's Tactical Team

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

George Orwell

Many times when there is a crime that hits a lot of headlines you'll read the line, 'The Maine State Police Tactical Team also responded to the call.' But unless it's a huge call, you might not hear much more than that. And that is generally how most current and former members of the Maine State Police Tactical Team like it.

Get the scoop

Ice cream flavors to really scream about 

 

There is something fantastically simple and complex about odd ice cream flavors. By the time your brain freezes, your mind is blown by what you are actually putting into your mouth. It's the Food Network meets 'Fear Factor' for the not-so-daring frozen food lovers. If that sounds like you, then listen up. This is your treasure map to chilly confections that make vanilla and the usual suspects (I'm looking at you, twist) seem, well, vanilla.

A new venue. A new start

Written by Mike Fern
Bangor's Waterfront Concert Series begins its fourth season

BANGOR It's a gray Thursday night as people fill into the new home of Bangor's Waterfront Concert Series. Nestled into a tighter spot aside the hill along Main Street a mere hundred yards from its former spot where it stood for three years, the new Darling's Waterfront Pavilion looms large over rows of well-organized chairs that are more reminiscent of the interior of the Collins Center for the Arts than an outdoor amphitheater. Soon, rock bands Hinder and Motely Crue will be treating fans to their first sounds of heavy guitar and teeth-chattering bass in a venue that took both collaboration and patience to achieve, and for many will be home to many more concerts in the years to come.

Playing tourist

Written by Katy England

The warm weather is here. We've had more sun this spring than I can recall in recently memory. It's gorgeous, with cool breezes and minimal rain. And the tourists really haven't started getting out yet. All this makes for an ideal opportunity for those of us who stick around all year to get out there and enjoy what our fine state has to offer before it gets too crowded.

When I'm doing a stay-cation I like to stay within a two-hour drive from my home base. So it worked out great when I had an interview in Camden last week. As many of you know, Camden is a tourist Mecca. And for good reason - but since it's still a couple weeks before Memorial Day weekend, the flood of tourists hasn't taken over yet. This meant I could follow Route 1 and 3 all the way back to my neighborhood, looking at the towns with a tourist's appreciation, but without bad traffic.

Superheroes, sequels and the end of the world

Written by Allen Adams
Previewing some of 2013's summer cinematic offerings

It's that time again. Hollywood has opened up their checkbooks and unleashed all manner of cinematic fare onto the masses. That's right blockbuster season.

2013 has plenty to offer. Big budgets are abundant. We've got iconic characters returning to the silver screen. We've got beloved franchises receiving their next installments. And we've got a number of different takes on the end of the world as we know it, both in the near-view and from the far-flung future.

Will all of these films be good? Heavens no. Will they all be entertaining? Also not likely. But rest assured, film fans of any stripe will be able to find something that tickles their fancy. There's a whole lot out there this handful is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Northern Writes: new and improved

Written by Allen Adams
New play festival marks seventh year

BANGOR Creating new works for the stage is an incredibly involved process. Playwrights struggle to find ways to see and hear their words so that they might find ways to tweak and improve their product. Hearing your words aloud and hearing an audience's reaction to those words is one of the most vital aspects of building the best possible piece.

Since 2007, Penobscot Theatre Company has been doing their part to help in the achievement of those goals. The seventh annual Northern Writes Festival of New Works is taking place at the Bangor Opera House from May 3 through May 5. Since its inception, over a thousand scripts have been submitted to the festival and vetted by a variety of readers. All told, Northern Writes has produced staged readings of over 100 scripts by writers from all over the country and beyond.

Multiple personalities

Written by Katy England

There's been something going on behind the scenes of your local media. Some of you may already be aware of it, and for others this may be breaking news. It's almost a pandemic. You have probably seen one on television. You may even be reading a story by one right now. The secret is out: there are a lot of people in the media who have given birth to multiples. 

Anyone who follows my Edge Mom column may or may not be aware that my tongue-in-cheek look at life with three kids comes from having three kids at the same time. You feel pretty unique when you have multiples, but that only lasts until you find that your network of parents of multiples is actually larger than you would think. It became clear pretty quickly that there are a lot of media personalities who have been blessed with multiples or are a twin themselves.
