    Soul Brother No. 1 - Top 10 reasons why Ray Charles is a genius

    Music writers toss around the term genius so often the word is almost meaningless. Madonna's a genius. Kurt Cobain was a genius. Trent Reznor's a genius. Yeah, right. Fact is, musical geniuses don't come around so often. The 20th century has produced...

    Ideal Houstonians - Local R&B quartet "gets the hell on"

    On the CD sleeve of Ideal's latest record, the name of the song is "Get Gone." But in Houston (and probably other parts of the country by now), the song is referred to by its most noticeable, most frank line: "Get the Hell On." The phrase is like a s...

    Everybody's a poseur in his/her own circles. In journalist circles, it's the height of fashion to drive jalopies and wear body-unconscious clothing, baker hats and blinders. (Just kidding.) On Wall Street, it's a paradox in motion. Traders don over...
