Gina Sicilia

Elvira Gina Sicilia (born March 6, 1985, Newtown, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, United States) is an American blues singer. She is the youngest daughter of Giovanni Sicilia, an Italian immigrant, born in the southern Italian regione of Calabria who emigrated to the United States in the 1960s, and Patricia Sicilia, born in Philadelphia. Sicilia has an older brother, David Sicilia, a physicist as well as an accomplished musician, and an older sister, Anne-Marie Sicilia, a math teacher in New Jersey. Sicilia attended the Council Rock School District in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Exposed to music early on by her parents, Sicilia showed a passion for music at a young age. By age 12 she began writing her own songs, and by 16 she had written numerous songs that would later be recorded on her debut album.In 2007, Sicilia graduated from Temple University with a degree in journalism. During her sophomore year of college, Sicilia began attending the weekly blues jam at Warmdaddy's in Philadelphia. It was there she got her first performing experience and met a large group of local musicians who would help her to record her first demo.

High Zero

High Zero is an annual festival of Experimental Free Improvised Music hosted in Baltimore, Maryland, United States starting in 1999, and is one of the largest Free Music festivals in the US, if not the world. It is hosted by the Red Room Collective, a volunteer group that sponsors weekly concerts in improvised music and experimental theater, film, poetry, etc. in a side room of Normals Books and Records. Since 2001, the festival has been hosted at Baltimore's Theatre Project space.

The festival focuses on non-idiomatic improvisation, vocal improvisation, instrument building, electronics, sound art, and community events. The main theatre-based performances aim to bring together improvisers who typically have never played together previously into novel live situations in front of festival audiences, creating, potentially, a new experience for both audience and performer.

High Zero draws from a large, international base of improvisors of many backgrounds, but traditionally gives half of the invitations for performance to Baltimore-based musicians and the other half to people from "elsewhere," whether that's Japan, thousands of miles away, or Philadelphia, about a hundred miles away.

High Jinx, a part of the festival focused on site-specific and community events, is a unique appendix to the festival. Typical events include a musical bike ride, an invented instrument band, a parade through Fells Point, and other outdoor performances, many of them punning and witty.

The festival has yielded six CDs on the Recorded label, each based around a particular performer (in order of release: Carol Genetti, Joe McPhee, Katt Hernandez, Jack Wright, Oleyumi Thomas and Neil Feather), which have, as a result of the festival's format, yielded documents of scarcely documented performers, including John Berndt, Paul Hoskins, John Dierker, Jason Willett, Catherine Pancake, James Coleman, Sean Meehan, Michael Johnsen, Jerry Lim, Ian Nagoski, Dan Breen, Dave Gross, Andy Hayleck, Helena Espvall, Evan Rapport, Keenan Lawler, Christopher Meeder, and Jim Baker.

Pure Speculation

Pure Speculation Festival, also known as Pure Spec, is an annual multi-genre fan convention taking place in Edmonton, Canada. It is an event that prides itself on being "by geeks, for geeks." Founded as a speculative fiction convention, it repackaged itself as a festival celebrating geek and fan culture in 2008. It offers programming dealing with science fiction, fantasy, pop culture, gaming, anime, comic books and webcomics.

In addition to the usual fare such as panels, games and a vendor room, there are several special events the festival hosts every year. The annual Costume Shindig happens on the Saturday of the event, featuring prizes in a variety of silly categories for guests and attendees. The Geeks for Geeks Charity Auction is also a yearly feature, in support of local charities.

Several smaller components also help to create the larger Pure Speculation Festival. These include Con*Spec, a writing and literature segment run by On Spec Magazine, and Comic Talks, a series of comic book panels hosted by Happy Harbor Comics. Until 2007, Pure Spec also played host to Con of Cold, an RPGA sanctioned Dungeons & Dragons event. Edmonton based BioWare also involves itself in the festival yearly, hosting panels and offering prize support.


The tiefling, in the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) fantasy roleplaying game, is a humanoid race. Originally introduced in the Planescape campaign setting in the second edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, they became one of the primary races available for player characters in the fourth edition of the game.In the Planescape setting, where Tieflings were originally introduced, they were described as being a mixture of human and "something else" with the implication that the non-human ancestors originated from the evil "lower planes". In further supplements it was clarified that Tieflings were usually descended from fiends but not the same as half-fiends, since a Tiefling's fiendish ancestry lies further up the family tree. This description remained true in 3rd Edition.

In 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, tieflings are a race whose human ancestors made a bargain with devils to increase their power. Their origin is similar in 5th Edition.

WMRI (860 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Sports format. Licensed to Marion, Indiana, United States, the station serves the Muncie-Marion area. The station is currently owned by Hoosier AM/FM LLC and features programming from ESPN Radio.


WZWZ is an FM radio station owned by Hoosier AM/FM LLC in Kokomo, Indiana. The station operates on the FM radio frequency of 92.5 mHz. The station is located on the South side of Kokomo on State Road 26, just East of US 931.

For many years, WZWZ was assigned to 93.5 FM and to make room for a new FM license in Hartford City, WZWZ (Z93) agreed to move its dial position to 92.7 in January 1986. All through the 1980s, listeners heard the slogan "Indiana's Hit Music FM" and the talent pool shared the likes of Dr. Dave Gross, Bob Richards, Tammy Lively, Pat Moore, Tom Wilhoite, Karen Joplyn, Glenn Thomas, Diane Costello, Lee McKay, Brandon Scott(Scott Howard) and John McGrue. The 1990s saw even more changes to WZWZ and Mid America Radio assumed ownership again and rebuilt this place into a very profitable business again. Another frequency change came in January 1995 and Z93 was now at 92.5. On-Air names who worked through the end of the decade included Amy Alexander, Matthew Paul, Regina Vorhees, Larry Brian, Jeff Steers, Tim Crank, Steve Morris, Alan Kaye, Allan James, Greg Bell, Rob Rupe, Amber Stearns and Greg Browning. Hoosier AM/FM acquired WZWZ in February 2009 and has since made a very substantial investment in the on-air sound and format of Z92.5. Early results have put the station near the top in cume listenership in the region. Kokomo's Z92.5 plays a Hot AC music format and features Jessica Green and Ben Rutz in the morning, Erin Fletcher for Middays, Radio Veteran Rob Rupe for afternoons and Delilah at night.
