Eric Ross/Music Review

To be honest, I felt a bit intimidated to approach reviewing an album that by all accounts is an important work. I know very little about the Theremin, beyond that it was invented in 1920 and used in songs like the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” and the beautiful and haunting theme for the 1960s’ series “Dark Shadows,” composed by Robert Colbert. The album has received rave reviews from the New York Times and other world class publications.

Fiction/Leslie Brown

  WALKABOUT   by Leslie Brown In the summer of 1969 I told my mother II was going to sublet an apartment in the Cass Corridor. I’d always wanted to live near campus, and this was my last chance, my final quarter of graduate school at Wayne State University. Mama argued. Good girls, decent girls don’t leave home until they gets married. She went off, as if reciting a script about single women based on a blues singer’s lyrics.  A single woman in an apartment, a woman without family. Had she forgotten that my husband had deserted me, I was one of those divorced women? Neighbors be wondering: What man or men coming and going to her home: the postman, delivery man, repairman or door-to-door salesman? How long was the visit? Husband look at that woman walking down the street, they give her a quick sly smile, quick muted sigh…You never know. They got to be the saddest…No, no, you don’t want to be one of those women. “Mama, I have my friends, besides this is 1969 not 1950, the people I’ll be living near won’t care about whether I’m married or not. They mind their own business.” Betsy, the building caretaker wore a shapeless cotton housedress.  She is solidly built with saggy-arms.

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
