Cakes and Tats

This edition, we offer you something new in addition to all of the fabulous material you’re used to seeing in the Pulse. We’ve compiled some useful all-Murfreesboro information for your wedding planning pleasure.

There are plenty of options here for the next time I get married.

And just as we do not take all of the regular sections out of the Pulse to make room for special content, I will not force out my existing wife to make room for new ones; I’ll just add to the goodness!

Ha ha. Just kidding dear. Our love is like a big ‘ole fairy tale storybook.

Unlike the stars and fans of Sister Wives, the Pulse says every man should be limited to one wife, one kitty, and one baby. Anything more, well, you’re just crazy . . . or soon to be.

“One is enough,” eh, Only Sons?

Our best to “Tie the Knot” section contributors Valerie and Tanya, who have both recently celebrated weddings themselves.

Mr. Jay Qualls of Maples Wedding Cakes has received plenty of national exposure after appearing on Next Great Baker (in my second TLC programming reference so far in this letter). Whether your art is cakes, tattoos, music, the theater, cars, beats or whatever, keep doing it! The Pulse supports local creative people.

And keep those concert listings coming; whether you’re playing at a house party, school, coffeeshop, church or garage, we want to print it—listings@boropulse.com.

Congratulations to Jennifer Davis, Christa MacKrell and Carmel MacKrell for taking first place in the middle school, high school and collegiate divisions in last month’s Bachfest. Playing Bach takes some serious work and dedication—keep the master of counterpoint alive!

Also congrats to Brenda Johnson, winner of the Nissan Cube given away as part of the Center for the Arts’ recent fundraising efforts.

Bands: want to play at Bonnaroo? Enter at bonnaroo.sonicbids.com before April 15. They may have already gotten their 10 artists, however; The Ascent of Everest, Fourth Avenue, Innocent Flannel, Black Catfish, Opposite Box, C.J. Vaughn, Static Revival, Sugar Lime Blue, The Deep Fried Five, The Only Sons (in the second Only Sons reference in this letter) and many other Middle Tennessee artists, are all in the running to play at Bonnaroo. Visit the aforementioned site, download their stuff and send them to the ‘Roo!
