The performers at the Charleston Performing Arts Center have a Fever, and you’re going to want to catch this one!

I had a chance to meet with C-PAC CEO Scott Pfeiffer and his talented cast to discuss their latest show, Fever, and what it takes to bring a dance production to the stage. Give a listen and enjoy some pictures of these incredible artists.

“FEVER” is a celebration of the songs and singers that changed the course of sexual expression for women. It is a tribute to the courage, the sensuality, and the empowered approach of these groundbreaking women.

Best of Charleston finalists

Best of Charleston finalists

boc15 For the second year in a row, MOD Love, Kinetic Hifi, and MOD Love’s co-hosts, Steven Cardinal and Jodi Riley, have been named finalists in Charleston City Paper’s Best of Charleston awards. Jodi, with a little help from a friend, put together a helpful little video to tell you where to vote and how to find us. We hope you’ll take a moment and head to the voting site and leave us your votes. You will have to create an account to vote (their way of preventing fraud). When prompted for a zip code, just use a friendly Charleston one, such as 29401. Thanks!

Zumba Class and Codeine Cough Syrup

I was going to write that there is some controversy about working out when sick but a quick 10 minutes on the Internet demonstrates that yet again, there was only controversy between my ears. So let me say the clear consensus seems to be that if your minor symptoms are from the neck up, it’s […]

How to change a man

Jodi recently sent me a terrific article about some traits men need to handle strong women. While I was in agreement with pretty much the author had to say, what tickled my funny bone for the week were the comments. For instance:

I think I shall be handing this to Prince Charming when he arrives…

It reminded me of comments and posts I have seen over and over again. Read more

D.A.S.H diet – Deprived, Angry, Sad and Hungry

(or Hopeless, Hostile, take your pick) I think all diets should be called the D.A.S.H. diet. I almost spit out my green kale beet asparagus sawdust juice cocktail when I saw this on the news and then googled it. http://health.usnews.com/best-diet The acronym D.A.S.H really stands for 1. Don’t Ask for Sugar, Honey. 2. Dietary Approaches […]

Stuck to the Negativity Magnet

Stuck to the Negativity Magnet

Thanks to the recent, ugly departure of the Florida State University Seminoles from the College Football Playoffs, there has been a considerable amount of commiserating and complaining online. A mutual friend of ours made the comment that FSU fans are the worst. Being from Boston, myself, I’ve always heard the same negative reaction to [Red Sox | Patriots | Bruins] fans. And yet, both Jodi and I have known so many great, polite, enthusiastic, and friendly fans of our teams, we wondered where these opinions come from? And then it struck me. Read more

margaret mitchell posterNothing evokes the image of the genteel south as Gone with the Wind and, with its character connections to Charleston, no novel or movie generates such palpable passion here in the Holy City. Did you know the movie was almost a bomb? With a script filled with holes and a budget reaching a breaking point, one of the most famous movies of all time almost didn’t get made.  Read more

Nagios: Monitoring Windows with PowerShell and NCPA

Nagios: Monitoring Windows with PowerShell and NCPA

The following article is just a portion of my SANS GSNA Gold Paper. Please see the PDF for the full paper.

Windows PowerShell is an extremely powerful way to maintain a modern Windows system. Nagios is an even more powerful way to monitor an entire network of systems. Put them together and, with the help of a Nagios agent such as NCPA, you can make enormous strides in reducing the off-hour calls from frustrated users. Forewarned is forearmed, after all. But Windows isn’t going to let you run PowerShell scripts without a little finagling. So let’s get to it. Read more

What to do with leftover pancakes?

What to do with leftover pancakes?

I love a nice, hearty breakfast on the weekends: slow-cooked Wright’s bacon and some scratch buttermilk pancakes with blueberries. Hell, yeah! (warning: I will be using colorful language in this post. It’s that important.) That’s damn good eating. But, given my girlfriend eats like a bird and I’m trying not to expand beyond my current zipcode, do I make a small batch of pancake batter? Hell to the no! That would require math and, heck, it’s the same amount of work no matter the batter. So what to do with the rest of the pancakes? Read more
