Lush are an alternative rock band that formed in London, England in 1987, disbanded in 1998 and reformed in 2015. Lush was the first band to be described as of the "shoegazing" genre. Their sound changed a great deal over the years the band was active and they disbanded when the drummer committed suicide in 1996, but did not officially announce it until 1998. They are now back together but we don't know for how long. We will start with their most recent video: Out of Control
Dorothy Must Die: Stories Volume 2 is another trilogy of short stories that tell the prologue of what happened before the first novel in the series "Dorothy Must Die". Included in this collection is "Heart of Tin", "The Straw King" and "Ruler of the Beasts".
The land of Oz has gone through a few changes since we last visited Dorothy Gale and her compatriots there. Some of our endearing characters have been corrupted, others have fled, those who we thought we could trust have betrayed us and Oz is no longer a safe magical place, it is now a magical place where danger lurks around every corner.
This librarian absolutely loves these books!!!! Danielle Paige has clearly done her homework and knows the vernacular and history of Oz as set out by L. Frank Baum. What she does with her vision is both exciting and terrifying, but how lucky are we to live in a world where fan-fiction has come this far to give us such an excellent retelling?
All the books in this series are highly recommended.

The RHCP are an American rock band that formed in Los Angeles in 1993. The lineup of the band has varied slightly over the years but has always included Anthony Kiedis, Flea and drummer Chad Smith. In 2012 the group was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame, they are also one of the most successful bands to perform on the alternative music radio charts. We begin with an earlier single: Higher Ground.
The trio Ivy is based out of New York City, but the lead singer hales from France. Their distinct sound is referred to as "pop music without the bitter after taste" and they really are a refreshing sounding band who don't dwell on specifics but on different relationships and themes.
Our first video by them is for the single: I've got a feeling
