What to do instead You’ve probably heard of traditional “rules of thumb” in finance that are supposed to make retirement planning simple. After all, if they’ve worked for decades, isn’t that the safest bet? Unfortunately, some of these have outworn their usefulness. The 60/40 portfolio is one of them. Even though it is still widely used in financial planning, it may endanger your future. That’s because it doesn’t consider one of the most significant issues today: longevity risk. Let’s look at the rules, the risks it presents, and what you can do to help protect your long-term finances. What is […]
Picture it: Baltimore, MD 2022 ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the store, each department was dripping with Yuletide decor. Sophia was nestled all snug in her bed, while visions of sugar prunes danced in her head. Before traveling to spend the Holidays with their families, Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose participate in a golden gift exchange full of hilarious surprises. Just as they get to the airport a winter storm blows in, leaving them trapped!

An interview with Nicole Atkins Already considered to be one of the best albums of 2017, Goodnight Rhonda Lee (Single Lock), the fourth full-length disc by Nicole Atkins, deserves all of the praise being heaped upon it. The 11 stellar tunes further Atkins’s singular exploration of vintage pop in the most exhilarating way, as you can hear on the title track, “Sleepwalking,” “A Little Crazy,” “If I Could,” “Listen Up,” and “Brokedown Luck.” Also of note is the way that the album addresses the singer/songwriter’s newfound sobriety, on songs including the aforementioned titular number. I had the pleasure of interviewing […]

Stratford? London? Fuhgeddiboutit. The Bard is virtually in residence here in Baltimore in 2018. Here’s what’s happening when… The Tempest – Marshall B Garrett January 12th – February 4th Great Hall Theatre at St. Mary’s Community Center Frequently read as a semi-autobiographical story of a magician giving up magic at the height of his power, Shakespeare’s final solo-authored play is a meditation on forgiveness, power, colonialism, and love.
Timpani solos. Hip hop narration. These are two phrases that do not fit into the common perception of “classical” music. Most people think of strings and operatic singing. In the start of the second half of their 2017-2018 season, Music Director Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra aim to alter that perception with their performances of Philip Glass’s “Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists” and Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals” on January 11th and 14th.
Depending on your generational perspective, the late soul goddess Minnie Riperton is either the mother of actress / singer / SNL alum Maya Rudolph or the singer with the five-octave vocal range best known for the timeless 1975 hit single “Lovin’ You,” co-written by Riperton and her husband Richard Rudolph. You can hear Riperton, who died of cancer in 1979 at 31, paying a “lovin’” homage to her daughter Maya at the end of “Lovin’ You.” The double-disc deluxe edition expanded reissue of Perfect Angel (Capitol / UMe), Riperton’s second album and the one on which “Lovin’ You” can be […]
