• MOD: The creation and ongoing evolution

    "Fashion is what one wears oneself. What is unfashionable is what other people wear." - Oscar Wilde

    Mod Music and Mod Culture are simply inseparable. Like the twisted double helix which contains all of our necessary information, the ongoing traits and their continuing combination and mutation continue to recreate a style that is uniquely individual even as you see everyone trying to imitate it.

  • Pine Belt record label promotes talent

    A deal with the devil is not a conversation you’re likely to hear in polite company. In fact, it’s probably not a conversation you’re going to hear in any type company. That is, unless you’re a musician. And then you’re all over it. You’ll talk about it to just about anyone who is willing to listen and more than likely, try and get them to make the same sweet deal… the same sweet deal.

  • Damsel in Denim

    When I sat down to write my article for this month, I started with absolutely no inspiration. I stared at my closet, I people-watched at a baseball game, and I even watched “The Devil Wears Prada” in hopes a light bulb would go off in my head. All I got from those activities was a sunburn from the baseball game and a terrible case of closet envy from the Anne Hathaway makeover scene in the movie. Seriously, if anyone knows where I can find that emerald green coat with the leopard print trim, call me immediately.

  • 27 (minus 20) Dresses

    If you have ever been a bridesmaid in a wedding, you can sympathize with the universal fear of bridesmaids everywhere – what will the dress look like?

    As we graciously accept the honor of standing up with our friend on her special day, we are secretly cringing on the inside at the thought of cheap, itchy satin, figure-hiding silhouettes and dyed shoes that perfectly match a shade of dress you would never wear in real life. But, are we freaking out for nothing? Most times, yes.

  • ARC unveils new ornaments, pottery

    Just days before Thanksgiving, things inside the Francis Bounds Fine Art Studio on the ARC campus are getting ready to be full speed ahead. The studio, located behind the ARC house on Bon-homie Road in Hattiesburg, is full of Rise and Shine participants of all ages eager to get the day started.

  • Skinnies, scarves, and socks, oh my!

    Every year, when my family gathers around the table for Thanksgiving dinner, we go around and everyone says at least one thing they are thankful for. Our answers are always fairly predictable – our family, parents, children, the food on the table – the basics. Even though the answers never change, we continue the discussion year after year. Although we moan and groan over our cheesy little tradition, the underlying theme is not lost on us – we all have something to be thankful for, and we are lucky to have those things.
