1) "She is my Property" is the name of a Steve Wilkos episode.
2) Pressing of the ovaries was considered a cure for hysteria while that was still a thing.

Re: “CD Reviews

Did you read the review, or just two words of it? I literally wrote, "the compositions are too complex for [the label pop-punk]." I also referred to this band as an "indie-rock band," and noted exactly what part of the music sounds to be on the verge of pop-punk: the vocals. But thanks for the history lesson!

Re: “CD Reviews

I'm sorry but what part of Instead Of Sleeping sounds Pop Punk? The band may have catchy melodies, and one epic gang vocal in "Black Light", but they in no way sound Pop Punk. Pop Punk is a genre that was built out of the 2000's with bands like New Found Glory, Fall Out Boy, All Time Low, and Four Year Strong as the main stays. Instead Of Sleeping is far to musically diverse to be classified as Pop Punk. Never in a pop punk song have I heard strings, like in "Indian Giver" or an organ like in "Defibrillator". That is a really sad piece of writing on a great album being put in the wrong genre. Its also sad too all Pop Punk fans who would go in expecting Pop Punk. If you are looking for an idea as to what Instead Of Sleeping sounds like, try bands like Minus The Bear, Manchester Orchestra, and Brand New.

Re: “Anything can be a song on Weird Paul's Medically Necessary

In stark contrast to the opinion of Dreger, I personally find Weird Paul a real treat. If you love the spoonfed, mainstream tack, then fair enough, but if you are searching for purer, more interesting and less affected gems... then Weird Paul delivers!

Re: “Local rockers Round Black Ghosts release Line Up

I must say....."I completely disagree!" Speaking as a participant of the Pittsburgh music scene,a fan of
Round Black Ghosts,and a former journalism student....."Ms.Shea is completely incorrect in her review of RBG"s album "Line Up"." This is one of the most creatively innovative albums to be released in the Pittsburgh area for far too many years to remember. Since it is the responsibility of the music critic to offer his/her opinion of an album,it SHOULD result in an educated, researched article. For Ms. Shea to compare a ballad such as "Drunks Don't Start Revolutions" to screamo, tells the reader that not only is Shea unfamiliar with the screamo genre, but also that she didn't listen to the album.(c' ten -year-old even knew the difference). Shea also makes this obvious by her statement of the relevancy of the lyrics to the subject matter(HELLO! the songs may have titles such as "Robots" and "Magic" but if she had taken the time to listen -or maybe to read the lyrics printed on the album cover, she would have realized that the titles aren't literal!). It's a shame that i will never trust the City Paper's journalism ever again since they put their trust in half -assed interns to write reviews. Ms. Shea---my advice to you is to go back to journalism school and repeat a few semesters. Try harder next time,and better luck in the future. Sincerely, Pittsburgh music fan, Deb Lannon
