Folk’s high elder John McCutcheon carries the mantle of pioneer Pete Seeger, who called his friend and protégé “one of our country’s best songwriters.” McCutcheon’s mastery of the simple song told with literary craft rests in his ability to use the small details of life to paint a hard and poignant view of the big picture—that is the true art of folk music.

Hey there! I’m Adam and I’m Watermark’s Spring 2016 intern.
I ran the InternPursuit event at UCF (found: a picture of me with said event, not found: a retoucher with a soul), where Watermark interviewed journalism students hoping to find The Best Intern in the World. I sat down with Rick (Claggett, publisher) and Jamie (Hyman, Digital Media Director) last minute as an unscheduled interviewee. They loved me and I loved them. Now here I am typing into a computer screen between a “Hate Free Zone” sticker and a series of Best Website WAVE awards.
The Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival celebrated its 25th anniversary in a big way Oct. 3-5 with a welcome by Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn Oct. 3, a live performance by legendary filmmaker John Waters and comedian Del Shores on Oct 4, and a panel discussion on LGBT history Oct. 5. The free opening night screening of Blackbird almost filled the historic Tampa Theatre to capacity and director Patrik-Ian Polk and star Julian Walker fielded questions after the screening.
