Brandi Rinks

brandiBrandi Rinks likes dogs, aquatic snails and flea markets. She’s loved photography since 9th grade, and a beat up Olympus OM-1 is her favorite camera. An unfortunate combination of slasher movie fan and total wussy, she sleeps with the lights on more often than she’d like to admit, and has seen the Sleepaway Camp series more than anyone should. Several people have told her she’s the grossest person they’ve ever met. She’d be more than willing to discuss pugs, fried pies, Bob Seger, horror movie subgenres or the X-Files with you, and can often be found swigging Jameson at shows in Memphis if you need to find her. Her photos can be found here.


JDSarah reads too much, has too many mosquito bites, and is still too torn up about David Bowie. Her personal brand is glitter and mediocre karaoke. You can stalk her if you want.

Screen Shot 2013-05-15 at 10.51.09 PMI play records on the radio in Cleveland, and sometimes I host dance parties around town. I like trashy rock’n’roll, kittens, true crime, vintage everything, the Monkees, and starting too many collections. My radio show streams live on wcsbradio.com every Tuesday night.

Daniel Doyle

I’ve played in some bands that did little touring, and written for newspapers that did little journalism. I succeeded at grad school, but failed to join the salaried bourgeoisie. As you read this I’m either living with my parents in Sedgwick, Ark. while I save up money to tour with a new band, or am on tour with that new band. I’ll give the name of the new band once we clear it with our attorney friend, because of course that name a.) rhymes with a dead rock star’s name and b.) is already used by a German DJ. I’m looking for a drummer willing to tour so hit me up if you’re interested or know anybody.

Screen Shot 2013-05-15 at 10.53.20 PMI study Digital Filmmaking and Political Science at the University of Central Arkansas. If i tried to categorize myself with details aiming at an explanation of my character, this Biography would be longer than the articles I write. I am literally obsessed with everything, so be prepared for anything.


Kandi Cook

KCCYou’ll never find Kandi Champagne Cook without a camera. She’s a natural documentarian and couldn’t stop if she tried. Her work has been featured in local and international publications, in galleries and exhibitions around the country, and as the profile picture of countless people on facebook. She shoots literally everything she sees, but her specialties are sweaty punk rockers in dive bars and a Bo-chi named Rocket. A Louisianan at heart, you’ll likely find her dancing and making trombone sounds with her mouth as she listens to brass band music and dreams of Catfish Po’ Boys and drive-thru Hurricane stands. She’s also a doodler, painter, knitter, donut fan, aficionado of The Simpsons, and balloon bomber. You can see more of her work atwww.kandicook.com, and check out her YouTube and Etsy.
