My Top 20 List of Film and Television Soundtracks From 1970-1980

 My Top 20 Film & Television Soundtracks From 1970-1980 (with a focus on horror, science fiction, and fantasy) On rare occasions, when I am not making music, I have time to listen.

3 Reasons Why Cincinnati Is Photogenic

Architecture - From excellent French Art Deco like the Carew Tower to beautiful engineering like the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, you could spend all day walking around downtown filling up memory cards (or rolls of film). If you have a moment, visit the Cincinnati Museum Center and check out the largest semi-dome in the western hemisphere. If you go inside, you should be warned. I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the hip of Orion, c-beams covered with glitter in the park, but I’ve never seen so many screaming children (one of them being......
