At the first weekend of Electric Forest, the Disco Biscuits’ bassist Marc Brownstein debuted a brand-new side project dubbed Star Kitchen. In November, the relatively new project made its inaugural run with a mini East Coast tour.The band–consisting of Brownstein, guitarist Danny Mayer (Eric Krasno Band), keyboardist Rob Marscher (Addison Groove Project), and drummer Marlon Lewis (Lauryn Hill & John Legend)–played a two-night run over the weekend, as the four-piece first welcomed Pigeons Playing Ping Pong guitarist Jeremy Schon at Baltimore’s 8×10 on Friday night.On Saturday night, the quartet performed at Fairfield, CT’s FTC StageOne, welcoming up Turkuaz vocalist Shira Elias for portions of their two-set show. Star Kitchen opened up the first set with Kool & The Gang’s “Let The Music Take Your Mind”, followed by Bob James’ “Nautilus” and Jimmy Smith’s “Root Down”. The four-piece then charged through a cover of James Brown’s “Soul Power”, before inviting Elias out on vocals to help them close their first set with takes on Stevie Wonder’s “Living For The City” Rufus & Chaka Khan’s “You Got The Love”.Following a brief setbreak, Star Kitchen came back out with Elias to work through funky renditions of J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight”, followed by Sly & The Family Stone’s “Sing A Simple Song”. The band thanked Elias as they hopped back into things as a four-piece, delivering covers of Billy Cobham’s “Red Baron”, The Stylistics’ “People Make The World Go Round”, “Walkin’ Sally”, and a set closing rendition of Grant Green’s “Jan Jan”. A take on Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison” served as the evening’s encore.Luckily, you can listen to a full-show audio recording of Saturday night’s Star Kitchen show below:Star Kitchen – 1/5/2019 (Full-Show Audio)[Audio: Eric McRoberts]Setlist: Star Kitchen | FTC StageOne | Fairfield, CT | 1/5/2018Set One: Let The Music Take Your Mind, Nautilus -> Root Down -> Soul Power, Living For The City*, You Got The Love*Set Two: After Midnight* -> Sing A Simple Song *, Red Baron, People Make The World Go Round, Walkin’ Sally, Jan JanEncore: Poison* – w/ Shira Elias
In a Tuesday email to students, associate vice president for Residential Life Heather Rakoczy Russell announced Notre Dame will begin the move out process May 22.Students will have the option to retrieve their belongings through an in-person appointment or opt to have their belongings packed, stored or shipped.“In-person move out appointments (4 hours in duration) will take place over the course of three weeks, including weekends,” Rakoczy Russell said in the email. “Appointment days for students returning in-person will be followed by appointment days for family/friend proxies. Appointment times are not yet available, but Residential Life will contact students in the coming week with further information.”In an effort to follow public health recommendations the scheduled move out appointments will prevent students from moving out of the same room at the same time. This will also allow for each building’s high-touch surfaces to be cleaned daily.According to the email, “All items left in residence halls after the move out process ends will be disposed of or donated, and may be subject to additional removal costs. Goodwill donation drop-off points will also be available.”Students have the option to “employ a local moving service for assistance, but must accompany that service in-person during their scheduled appointment time.”The University will allow Handled, a third-party vendor, to pack, store or ship belongings to students who are not able to return to campus in person.“The cost of the packing and storage service starts at $545 per student, which includes four large boxes, three bulk items and free local storage in a non-climate-controlled container through September 30,” Rakoczy Russell said in the email.Students have the option to purchase extra boxes, box items, extend storage and/or ship items to their homes for an additional cost.Rakoczy Russell added in the email that “for whom a return trip to campus might present a particular financial hardship,” the Office of Student Enrichment is available for assistance.Tags: COVID-19, Heather Rakoczy Russell, move-out
This could be you, in your backyard.Don’t want to wait in line at the slopes? Make your own.Backyard snowmakers make snow just like the resorts do, with compressed and pressurized air. You use a garden hose hooked up to household water supply, whether that be city or well water.“All you are doing is connecting two hoses into the air compressor and pressure washer,” says Matthew Pittman, owner of Snow at Home. “It’s truly that simple.”Backyard ski hills are rapidly gaining popularity as an opportunity to practice tricks at home, cut costs, and introduce snowsports to kids.Snow At Home sells a range of snowmakers ranging from $300 to less than $2,400, and his website, snowathome.com, still provides free plans if you want to do it yourself. The largest pump covers a 150-foot by 20-foot area with a half-foot of snow overnight. At the lower end, it sells snow machines that cover 40 feet by 20 feet to a six-inch depth.Pittman says it needs to be at least 27 degrees Fahrenheit outside with humidity at 25 percent and below—or else slush.Since refining his snowmaking equipment, Pittman has also developed boxes and rails for at-home terrain parks (visit his other site, jibsforcribs.com). He also has started manufacturing homemade rope tows for backyard ski lifts. Pittman’s lifts are electric-powered, and the rope is cut to the specific length of the backyard hill. Next on his list: grooming rakes.If you are handy and looking to cut costs on the mountain, then your backyard might be where you find your fall line this winter.

You probably have a laundry list of answers. Perhaps you lead with rate and service. Perhaps there is a specific niche you serve better than anyone else. Maybe you have a very unique product.All well and good, but do you know how to communicate your value proposition in 2 seconds or less?Extensive neuroscience studies, conducted by Mars (yes, the candy company), show that similar marketers now only have about two seconds to capture consumers’ attention in the digital realm. As a company that owns several candy brands (impulse buys for the most part), the marketing team in the Mars communications lab is trying to solve, 1) how to draw attention and 2) quickly create an emotional connection. The two together are the magic formula for triggering impulse purchases.
