MIZU JAPANESE – FIRST LOOK – SOUTHPARK

Chef Michael Chanthavong really knocked this menu out of the park. He rolled out a bunch of plates for myself and editor Cathy Martin of South Park Magazine. Everything was delicious!! From meat, to seafood to veggies! At Mizu, guests can grab a seat at the counter and watch behind a glass partition as the chefs prepare dishes such as robata-grilled oysters topped with yuzu corn butter, panko and spicy aioli.

Furnace Fest 2021 – Birmingham Alabama
Furnace Fest 2021 – Birmingham Alabama

Imagine stepping back in time to the early 2000’s hardcore / metalcore scene. That is exactly what Furnace Fest 2021 was. Now I can barely sit through a 4-band show anymore… Let alone a 7-hour car ride toĀ Birmingham AlabamaĀ and 4-days of non-stop chaos. Some of the bands on this festival have not reunited in 10+ years. Not to mention some of North Carolina’s MVP royalty were on the bill (Hopesfall, Beloved, He is Legend, Bloodjinn, …

Hello, my name is Justin Driscoll. Originally from New Jersey, I call the wonderful state of North Carolina home.Ā 

I might have taken your photo at some point or met you at a Rock N Roll show? However, I also have many other facets of my life I am passionate about. I started this site to talk about some of those things.

Whether it be guitars, guitar gear, Harley’s, Jeep stuff, photography, vinyl or travels, I’ll be on here to chat about it.

Who is the last REAL rockstar?
"Lemmy would probably be the cool answer to give but Iā€™m going with Freddie Mercury. He conquered a lot of odds, commanded the stage and didnā€™t care what people thought. He also (in my opinion) has the best voice in Rock."

What would be the most important lesson you would teach your daughters?
"Hard work and brutal honesty. When you are truthful, faithful and passionate things seem to fall into place. You make your own luck. Shoot people straight and treat them the way you want to be treated."

If you could be an animal, which one would you be?
"Call me Michelangelo, I am going with a turtle. If I was not digging things Iā€™d chill inside my shell. Living slow and steady."

What are some of your most notable musical influences?
"Nirvana made me want to start a band, they will always be my #1. That band got me into Black Flag and punk rock, which changed my life. From there I really got into more hardcore like Converge & Snapcase. Glassjaw was a perfect bridge between a lot of it. I also love older stuff like Sprintgeen and The Allman Brothers band."
