Run the Jewels wsg Boots @ Royal Oak Music Theatre (Photos)

By Alexis Simpson   http://www.runthejewels.net   Run the Jewels are current media darling so I wanted to check them out when they came to town.

Cake wsg Kaleo at The Detroit Fillmore (Photos)

By Alexis Simpson My two favorite Cake signs are “Sheep go to Heaven” and “Mexico.” “Sheep go to Heaven” was the first song of the night so I tried not to dance around like a goof while taking photos from the pit. For “Mexico,” I sat in the balcony and sung along like a happy […]

Awolnation @ The Detroit Fillmore (Photos) 7-3-15

  By Alexis Simpson Awolnation is one of the most innovative and interesting bands currently touring. Frontman Aaron Bruno is quirky, but not overly so, meaning that his music is still relatable. The band last played at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit a few years ago, but last week the progressed to Detroit’s Fillmore. Bruno is a strong performer, and […]


Michigan Legislature says “cut” to film incentives

By: Dave Palmer The only think that stands between retaining a vibrant part of this nation’s economy and its final curtain call is a stroke of Governor Rick Snyder’s pen. And if Snyder does indeed make that stroke on the signature line of this bill, Michigan can say goodbye to more good jobs and more reasons […]

Noize has an Etsy Store!

By Alexis Simpson   I’ve wanted to have an online store to sell my photography prints, but I could never decide on a site in which to sell them on. I finally decided on Etsy, and have been in the process of uploading products. It’s a work in process, but I’ve also decided to sell […]


Technolo-gee: Adventures in the Online Job Market

By Dave Palmer Modern society is increasingly turning to electronic solutions for nearly everything. Whether it be shopping, banking, or communicating, we hear the same mantra: It’s faster and more convenient. Job hunting has, of course, been relegated almost entirely to the online world as well. The same idea of greater convenience, easier connection to […]

The future of our children’s education: A case for isolationism

By: Dave Palmer Once again I find myself staring the future right in its ugly face. A future of uncertainty, trepidation, and anxiety. A future in which I am cast into the ranks of the unemployed, though I have not done anything wrong other than choose teaching as a profession. My performance was satisfactory or better on […]

North American International Auto Show 2015

What it’s Like to Photograph the Detroit Auto Show 2015 (NAIAS 2015 Photos)

By Alexis Simpson I’ve photographed the North American International Auto Show in Detroit the last three years, and it’s a love/hate event. The major pro of photographing the show is that I’ve gotten to sell my photo to publications such as Forbes and The Wall Street Journal. In fact, the first photo I ever had […]
