Singer/songwriter/composer Coby Brown's brand new video “Tokyo” has its exclusive worldwide premiere via Vents Magazine today; check it outhere. Of the path that led to the making of the video, Coby Brown explained, “The director, Rennie Solis, and I had been talking about making a video forever. I'd just finished recording 'Tokyo' and it seemed like an obvious candidate for a video to us both. We kept thinking of versions we could shoot domestically, but to no avail. Rennie suggested we just go shoot something in Tokyo, but between work and kids it seemed like a long shot. But then the Universe stepped in. We went to a work event for my wife where Delta was one of the sponsors. The sponsors all had games and were giving away gifts. We were getting ready to leave when someone said, 'you guys should go play the Delta game, my friend just won a trip to Shanghai.' As soon as I heard that, I bee-lined over there.

'In Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial,' author, Robert Thornhill, continues to ask the question, 'Are we being poisoned?' Investigative reporter, Jack Carson, has been murdered, but by whom? Police arrest mob boss Carmine Marchetti, but Walt is convinced that it was the work of government assassins, sent to silence the reporter before he could expose a clandestine program that for decades had been spraying deadly chemicals into the atmosphere for weather control and defense. Will justice prevail or will the government's dirty little secret remain hidden? Lee Ashford of Reader's Favorite writes, 'Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial by Robert Thornhill is another brilliantly-conceived mystery/comedy novel from the biographer of Walt Williams and creator of the Lady Justice series of contemplative tales. As fresh and timely as all the stories in this series, Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial tackles a troubling theory gaining traction just below the surface of public consciousness. 'Whether truth or fiction, the subject matter of this story - and its immediate predecessor, Lady Justice and the Conspiracy - will have readers surreptitiously peering beyond their curtains at the sky above. 'Once again we find the intrepid Walt Williams, senior citizen extraordinaire, right in the thick of a dangerous situation. As the body count rises, Walt understandably fears for his safety and the safety of his loved ones. This time he may have bitten off more than he can chew. 'Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered whether the government is perhaps not always forthcoming with 'the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth' in its response to requests for information. 'Has our government conspired to foist a deadly top-secret program on our planet, or is this just an imaginative and witty tale? It will give you an adrenaline rush, regardless of what you ultimately believe. It will also give you something to think about. 'Robert Thornhill has a noteworthy talent for crafting compelling tales ripped from the headlines of our daily newspapers. Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial will grip you from beginning to end and may well color your dreams at night. 'Five stars and two thumbs up for Lady Justice and the Conspiracy Trial.' Robert began writing at the ripe old age of 66 and in six years has penned twenty-two novels in the Lady Justice series, the seven volume Rainbow Road series of chapter books for children, a cookbook and a mini-autobiography. During the past year, nine volumes in the Lady Justice series reached the #1 rank in the book's category on Amazon.

If you really love Greek mythology, the old Divas of WWE or trashing other womxn then this is probably not the play for you. But if you love the Kardashians, candid CNN interviews, gold (everywhere), spelling womxn with an a?oexa?? and smashing the patriarchy one rape-culture-drenched mythological origin story at a time then this might just be your cup of tea. Drawing from the Greek mythologies of Persephone, Medusa and other not so well-known characters, Nasty Womxn is a collection of sketches about contemporary womxn just trying to get from day to day.

There's terrific acting in the touring cast, even if the singing voices waver from Platt to flat. We get an incredibly convincing Evan in Ben Levi Ross (an understudy for the same role on Broadway). He interprets the character as nervous, nerdy, and unknowingly funny. It's an excellent performance...
