Hello GLOBers and how are you this Tuesday morning? Did you know today was National Clam Chowder Day?  Where do you get your favorite bowl of clam chowder?  New England clam chowder is a milk- or cream-based chowder, commonly made with potatoes, onion, and clams. Including tomatoes is shunned; a 1939 bill making tomatoes in clam chowder illegal was introduced in the Maine legislature..  Hmmm, Nothing warms the body up like a good bowl of creamy chowder loaded with clams and potaties.  That sounds like a good lunch idea right at the moment. Let's meet at you favorote soup shop for lunch and we can talk of the virtues of a good bowel of chowder.

And now they are making their way to Gainesville to rock the High Dive Stage!   Tickets available online, at Hear Again Records ($1 FEE), and at the High Dive box office (NO FEES!).

With sophisticated instrumentation and gorgeous harmonies, Red Horse’s music overflows with all the wonder of great songwriting.  General Admission:  7pm $50, 9pm $35,  UF Students $10.

The secrets of Marmalade

Marmalade is an entire world, a rabbit hole with no escape hatch. And somehow I’ve landed the role of Alice, stumbling through groves of boiling theory and orchards of shred method, wondering at the scale of this eccentric subculture. - READ MORE




Salmon Sisters fighting for a good fish future - Alaska produces more wild seafood than all the other states combined—and its strict conservation practices and pristin marine waters set it apart on the global market. The state has written sustainable fishing practices into its constitution, and many entities collaborate to make sure fish are caught by methods that maintain fish stocks and minimize harm to the plants and animals in the marine environment.
