Kaleigh Baker returned to The Rattler on April 21 with Nate Anderson, bringing both sweet music and sweet sauce to share with audience members.

Along with delivering vocals comparable to Janis Joplin, Kaleigh bottles and sells her own sauce. Serenade Marinade, manufactured by Pocas Hottest, goes good on everything.

“You don’t find that very often with sauce,” she said.

Serenade Marinade is described as “a sweet and smoky sauce with a kick,” and holds “firey sweetness” qualities, offering a wonderful glaze or dipping sauce. It sells out quickly at the merchandise stand at most of her shows, so she set a box aside to sell that night.

Audience members were presented with a lot of noise, a lot of heat, and some new material. They performed one of their latest songs, “Pittston Pistol,” written about Kaleigh’s love for one of her favorite spots. The two Orlando residents said everyone in Pittston becomes like family and that they were excited to return to The Rattler.

Beyonce Said Bitch

Beyonce Said Bitch

…Or at least I think that’s the big deal?

Sure, there are a few more expletives littered throughout the song.

She’s supposed to be a role model for millions of girls throughout the world.  She provides an empowering statement for all females with the following lyrics:

“I took some time to live my life
But don’t think I’m just his little wife
Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted
This my shit, bow down bitches”

A little cuss here, a little cuss there.  But with the words “Don’t think I’m just his little wife,” her message is clear.  She’s married to the king of the rap world, and even though she is the queen, she has earned that title on her own.

Hugo Chavez Dead at 58

Hugo Chavez Dead at 58

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez lost his battle with cancer several weeks ago.  He was loved by the people of Venezuela, but many people in the United States regard him as an anti-American Socialist leader.  Regardless, as this article points out, Venezuela is the fourth-largest supplier of oil to the United States, offering a strong connection between the countries and potentially leaving officials of both countries up in the air about further relations.

Campion Literary Society Hosts Open Reading

This article was never published, but here’s a review on an open reading hosted by King’s College’s Campion Literary Society

 

Members of the Campion Literary Society met this past Thursday to share poetry, short stories and articles during an open reading.

The Campion Society members plan to gather regularly to hold open readings as well as writing workshops.  All events will take place on Thursdays and will be open to all King’s students.

Last Thursday’s event began at 7 p.m., but Campion Society Treasurer Jenel Gronkowski said that for the sake of convenience the group will try to hold its open readings earlier in the day.

“We know later meetings are rough on commuters,” Gronkowski said.

The open readings will all hold a common theme.  In accordance with Valentine’s Day, last week’s theme was love.

Readers at the event share mostly their own work, but works published by other writers are also sometimes shared.  Audience members will then give the reader their reactions, providing feedback which could improve writing skills.  More often than not, the reader will offer some kind of a background to the piece they are about to share.

The Campion Society announces their upcoming open readings and writing workshops on the campus calendar.  If you’d like to attend, or find out the theme for the next reading, contact President Sarah Scinto.
