Woodin family remembers a daughter lost
The Arizona v. Mark Torre trial has given the family of Jessica Woodin, who was killed in the hit-and-run accident in question, time to recall details about their daughter's death.

"She wasn't an academic, but she got straight A's," said a Woodin family member. "She wasn't an athlete, but she was one of the leading scorers on her high school hockey team. She was a person who had an inclination toward something and did it. It's just too bad she had to go at 18."

I tried my hardest to become a carnie — a traveling freak. After all, I was called the "freckle-faced freak" as a child, so I thought I was a shoe-in. And that was coming from my mother.

Shakespeare gets made
William Shakespeare and Francis Ford Coppola bring similar elements to the theater and cinema. Getting kissed, for example, will often be followed by an untimely death.

Poster boys
The members of local band Leo's Invention are on the move. Running around ASU's campus, they have an especially important task if they want to get noticed: fliering.

A risk worth taking
Euriska's members now number five, and its music haunts the ASU campus. But the band isn't freshman anymore, and it wants local audiences and venues to know it.

Burning up
In the garage located next to the Assembly of God Church on Baseline Road, the dreams of five young men, known as Ember Coast, are slowly coming true.

Sera's Sera
Sera's self-titled debut album brings the listener on a journey to California — Beverly Hills, 90210, to be exact. The lyrics are beyond cheesy.

Kottonmouth Kings's Rollin' Stoned
It's hard to believe that the Kottonmouth Kings, which rocked the music industry with lyrics about fat blunts and legalizing pot, are now singing about peace and love.

Ablaze with Oktober
We decided to give Oktober its 15 minutes of fame to preview its performance today on Hayden Lawn as part of The Blaze's 20th Anniversary show.

Secrets of the 'Heart'
Trying to get inside the head of Tobias Nathaniel is analogous with deciphering meaning from the name of his band, The Black Heart Procession.
