Helicity: Future Is Now

Helicity: Future Is Now

We’re in our 30s and still think it’s funny to talk like old people. Put a crotchety quiver in your voice and slightly hunch over and wave your fist at some imaginary enemy, channeling your best Grandpa Simpson, and mutter about “kids these days.” Throw in some jokes about bad driving or failure to understand […]

Starting off 2016 in Montgomery

Starting off 2016 in Montgomery

Regular readers of MML know that we love to do the classic “annual review,” sometimes jamming it together with forecasts, wishes and resolutions about the coming year. It’s fun to think back over the previous year, while throwing out some guesses about what may be in store. Several years ago, we were ambitious and did […]

Baghouse and The Sanctuary

We’ve written on this blog twice before about the interesting sonic experiments of local guitarist Jeff McLeod. The first time was a 2012 writeup of his album Under Dim Self, which we called “vibrational healing by way of some kind of Brian Eno workshop.” Over a year later, we reviewed the album “Scum Commodities” from […]

One of my first posts for MML was about Rescued Relics, our salvage warehouse at Old Alabama Town. So I thought it was time for an update on what has been a huge success! We initiated this innovative way to produce income when the city budget cuts took their toll on our operations here at Old […]

Last week Carole King alerted us to the New South Maker’s Emporium, a pop-up shop full of goods by local artists. The folks at Helicity were kind enough to share some pictures from the store as well as a partial list of vendors here. If you haven’t stopped by, there’s still plenty of shopping time […]

The 2013 Tallapoosa Street location was in business for less than three weeks and sales totaled $11,000, with 33 artists selling goods from a week before Christmas to a little after New […]

Popping Up with Local Shopping

By on 16 December, 2013 in Heather Coleman, Holidays, Shopping with 0 Comments

Honestly, I hate Christmas shopping. December always feels like a race to me, and I always feel like I am the one in back, lagging behind everyone else. My oldest kid’s birthday is December 19, which mostly just adds to the sense of failure and impending doom that hangs over the time between Thanksgiving and […]

Dexter Derby Reignited

Dexter Derby Reignited

By on 23 January, 2013 in Fun with 4 Comments

There was once an event in downtown Montgomery that drew throngs of citizens to either Montgomery St or Dexter Ave. It united all ages to celebrate culture, camaraderie and engineering; or simpler put, the boldness of the human character. From the 1920s to the 1980s, soap box derby racing was a common occurrence on these streets. […]
