Spearheaded by Peter Richards (of Stargrazer and The Nanobots), the label is releasing a series of exclusive singles by bands from Greater Lansing and beyond. Each single, available for download as of this week, serves as a “triple Aside:” 3 bands and 3 songs for 3 bucks. Richards is coining it a “3-Way Singles Club.” “The series is in the spirit of the old single-of-themonth clubs where you’d get a fresh piece of vinyl in the mail every month, except that ITAV’s series will be all digital,” he explained, “So there are no manufacturing costs for the bands.” The first single is free for download, and succeeding singles will be $3 each. Bands involved include Joshua Barton & the Brothers & Sisters, Narc Out The Reds, The Playback, The Hat Madder, Stargrazer, The Plurals, Cavalcade, Jet Lag Superstar, Frank And Earnest, Flatfoot, Sleeping Timmy and more. Richards hopes this helps locals get their music out via an affordable vehicle. “Building sustained excitement for the independent music community has always been a challenge,” he said. “Major labels can blow thousands on life-size cardboard cutouts of pop stars, but for local bands and independent artists, it can be hard to keep people engaged. “No matter how much you love making music, and

Suban Nur Cooley, 30, of Lansing is the social media savvy mother of @BabyCooley on Twitter. She’s set up the account for her son, Abyan, who at 1, tweets mostly about tasting new foods and getting his way when it’s nap time. Plenty of new moms give their babies a place to shine on Facebook, filling their profile with photos and updates. But on Twitter, @BabyCooley and the many other babies with Twitter accounts get a voice to document new experiences and make comments to their mothers’ friends online. We asked @BabyCooley himself. How long have you been tweeting? Why did you start? Wait, are these answers supposed to 140 characters long? I feel like I’m breaking the rules by going over! Haha. I started tweeting September 16. The account was created after Julie Burtch, a longtime Lansing resident (and friend of my mum) moved to Detroit and requested that I get my own account. What types of things do you like to tweet about? I tweet about animals, first experiences, snarky baby comments ... you know, the usual baby jibber jabber.


Welcome to life as a parent ... don’t worry: Forget about mom jeans and minivans


Danielle Cabule says her favorite places to take 18-month-old Maceo are Mommy and Me swim class at Lansing Community College and Jumpin’ Jax Bounce Arena in Lansing. An hour or two of full-on play in these settings can tucker out even her little whirlwind of energy and make sure he’s more than ready for a nice long nap or good night’s sleep.



You seem to use the #lovelansing hashtag quite a bit — where are your favorite places to go in #lovelansing? Well, I use the hashtag because I do love Lansing. It’s where I was born. Something John Hughes and I have in common. As for places. I’m definitely an outdoor baby. I like being outside on the River Trail, frequenting the many parks in our city, taking random day trips to Impression 5 or Potter Park Zoo with my mum. Admittedly though, I love going to the Lansing City Market. The vendors all kinda know me so they’ll let me run around and say hi without being annoyed. Do you mostly tweet from your mom’s phone? Those are some pretty impressive fine motor skills you must have. How soon until she gets you your own cell phone? You know, it’s probably a tie between using her laptop or her phone. Seeing as I’m responsible for the demise of her first iPhone, she prefers for me to use her laptop. I dropped it once. Screen went blank. Nuff said. I probably won’t be getting my own device for many, many years. ‘The Emperor’ is a cool hashtag and nickname — where did that come from? The nickname came from The Emperor’s New Groove. My parents liken me to Emperor Kuzco. They feed me, cloth me, take care of me ... but I still get to do what I want, when I want. Also, I have needs, and they must be met. No two ways about it. So, I’m the one who governs things at our humble abode. Well, for now at least. What do you think your reaction will be to looking back on your tweets when you’re all grown up? Hmmm, I’ll either think my mum was the biggest nerd on the planet, or I’ll think she was pretty cool. Only time will tell.


Tricia Bobeda NOISE

Young moms know how to avoid mom jeans. They either reject or embrace the mom haircut, but do so knowingly. But it takes more than stylish denim and a cute haircut to make you a cool mom. We’ve put together a list for Mother’s Day of some local activities you can do that will make your kids think you’re pretty cool. We checked in with #lovelansing’s favorite tweeting toddler, @BabyCooley, to see what he thinks of his social media savvy mom. And trying out yoga classes or spending a day at the science museum making slime are sure to earn you cool points with your kids. We make no guarantees on teenagers.


Making sure your kids think science is cool is simple — just take them to Lansing’s interactive museum Impression 5 Science Center. The hands-on museum is the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon stepping inside giant bubbles, making slime in a laboratory and throwing baseballs to test their speed. There are plenty of day camp options throughout the summer, but you only have until May 15 to check out its latest exhibit. Don’t miss Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body. The exhibit explains the science behind some of the human body’s slimy, smelly and oozy qualities. Go to to learn more about the exhibit or to to see what’s next at the museum.

Hilaire Lockwood O’Day runs Hilltop Yoga studio in Haslett.

You’re a mother of three — what was your first experience with prenatal yoga? When I was pregnant with my third child, I was practicing yoga and then started in the prenatal class. It was so wonderful just to be able to continue what I was doing and continue it in that fashion, of being pregnant and having a yoga class just for me. It was a nice place to come and just address all the things that are common aches and

pains of pregnancy, a place to focus your mind, breathing. It all helps so much just to get through pregnancy, labor and beyond. What are the benefits of prenatal yoga? The physical benefits are huge. You already know you’re going to get exercise, strength and flexibility. With the prenatal yoga and connecting breath to movement, it gave me a sense of body awareness and an ability to just find some peace of mind, to clear your mind. (My teacher said) birth is a profound letting go. I love that description. Through prenatal yoga, you find that, you find the ability to let go. You have to do that on a mental, physical and emotional level. Doing yoga while you’re pregnant you can really find a deep connection with your baby. You’re never as connected as you are then. I have a 13-year-old, he rolls his eyes at me. What made you decide to start teaching yoga? I did teacher training two years after Fiona, my youngest, was born. To me it was so fabulous and wonderful that I was eager to share that with other moms and moms-to-be. I really love doing it. I’ve been teaching since 2008. I did a teacher training with Janice Clarfield and it just deepened my understanding and reaffirmed what I already knew. What’s unique about the atmo-

sphere in these yoga classes? It’s wonderful when you have other people who are going through the same experience. We start class by talking about what’s going on with the body and the mind. It’s nice to have people to talk to who are going through it. What’s the structure of your Mommy and Me yoga classes? You have to be flexible to go to Mommy and Me and I don’t mean your body. Most women start coming as soon as they can after (birth). They bring their baby and we want to see what we can do. Sometimes babies sleep the whole time, and then we do yoga. And sometimes babies cry, and we don’t do much yoga, we talk. If you need to nurse, go right ahead. You’re in a safe space of other women. As they get a little older there can be interaction. We go up to crawlers. Once the babies can crawl and pull up, it doesn’t become a safe environment for them.


Janet MacFarlane, 41, of Haslett started doing yoga nine years ago when she first moved to Michigan. “Yoga has been my oasis,” MacFarlane said. “It’s where I find and I hope others can find that place where they center themselves. I firmly believe that when you are strong for yourself, when you take care of yourself, you can only be stronger for those who need you the most.” For Janet, that means her three children. She started doing yoga after her second child was born and continued through the pregnancy of her third. “It’s hard to balance everything, but that’s what yoga is, it’s about finding balance,” she said. MacFarlane now teaches prenatal, Mommy and Me and power yoga at Hilltop Yoga, which has studios in Haslett and in Old Town. She talked with NOISE about the impact yoga can have on moms and moms-to-be.

Now on Thursdays MAY. 05 – MAY. 11


You and your husband both do yoga. Do your children (ages 13, 8 and 4) do yoga, too? My youngest, Fiona, is looking forward to kids yoga. We’re doing a kids class this summer and she’s old enough now. They’re all curious whenever I do yoga and attempt to do all sorts of (poses).

Looking to tote your kids around town in something a little less ... ummm ... hideous than a bulky minivan, try these stylish choices:

THE CADILLAC CTS SPORT WAGON The car can haul more cargo than an average sedan but a little less than a full size SUV. You might not be able to carry quite as much of your kid’s soccer equipment, but it sure does look cooler than a traditional minivan. It’s also mostly designed and built at the Lansing Grand River Plant, so you can drive around town with the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes from helping provide local jobs. The CTS Sport Wagon was named one of Car and Driver’s “10 Best Cars” for 2010.

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA SPORTWAGEN Another transformer, the SportWagen boasts 67 cubic feet of storage, which matches or exceeds the capacity of many other wagons. The SportWagen comes with leatherette seats, which makes cleaning up after spilled cereal and muddy cleats simple. The Jetta wagon is a spin off of the traditional Jetta sedan, also a family-friendly car, and gets 33 MPG on the highway. It was ranked No. 1 in the compact wagon category in 2011 by U.S. News and World Report.



Not nearly as bulky as most of the SUVs, minivans and wagons on the market, the Fit’s roomy backseat can handle two carseats or lanky teenagers with ease. It’s every-inch-counts design gives it more room in the cargo bay than some much larger wagons. You can tell the little guys in your life that the cars in Transformers have nothing on your Fit, since it’s stowable back seat means it’s capable of hauling almost anything. Bonus? It gets 35 MPG, so you won’t be filling up the gas tank between every trip to ballet and baseball practice.

... And You Will Know Us by the Trail of the Dead



Prog rock band tours With a band name like … And You Will Know Us by the Trail of the Dead, it’s a no-brainer this isn’t your everyday rock band. The Austin, Texas-based indie outfit built up its fanbase playing radical, riotous live shows night after night — the kind that have you losing your hearing for three days, even with ear plugs. While a lot has changed since the guys first got together in the late ‘90s, that live energy has stayed consistent. Fans will witness it in person when the band hits The Loft in Lansing Friday for its first-ever Lansing show. This year has been a whirlwind for the group: It released a new album (“The Tao of the Dead”), played “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and scored a high-profile gig at South by Southwest in Austin. Musically, their interesting blend of punk rock oomph and prog rock fantasy keeps them moving forward. » …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of The Dead, Surfer Blood, True Widow » Doors 7 p.m. Friday, May 6 » The Loft (above Harem Urban Lounge), 414 E.

t’s been a mighty busy news week: the most hated man in the world was killed, tornadoes ripped Middle America apart and two British people got married really early in the morning, I think. It’s likely that playoff hockey, basketball, the NFL draft and early season baseball were probably low on the priority list of things to keep abreast of recently. Before I release you to partake in your Cinco de Mayo celebrations, I’ll relish in the obligation of catching you up on sports happenings with a bit of title-based arithmetic, abstract thought and some mention of public defecation. Got all that? Aaaaaaand go.

You’re looking at the author and wondering, “That Marcia Clark?” Yep, it’s that Marcia Clark. The lead prosecutor on the illfated O.J. Simpson trial has been quietly making a name for herself as a writer, penning TV dramas and a column for the Daily Beast, and now she’s released the first of an anticipated series of legal thrillers featuring Rachel Knight, a tough, intuitive district attorney in Los Angeles. This not a genre I typically read, but I was lucky enough to attend an author dinner with Clark in which she completely won me over. The woman is S-M-A-R-T and witty, and likes a drink as much as her heroine does. Her thriller is much like she is — clever with a wry sense of humor, and full of behind-the-scenes details. While the novel has some of the weaknesses of debut novels, overall it’s a fun, guilty-pleasure read that’s perfect for summer.



LIONS DEFENSE + NICK FAIRLEY = GNARLY (I haven’t used one of those words in at least a decade.) The NFL draft concluded this past weekend, with the now infamous lockout restored and a 2011 season in dire straits. Let’s pretend like we’re all not fuming mad about the insane length of time it’s taking to reach a new collective bargaining agreement — and review the Lions’ draft picks. Basically, Detroit killed it. We picked up defensive tackle Nick Fairley, a monster of a man who, when paired with Ndamukong Suh, will increase the chances that an opposing quarterback may soil himself, which makes for great television. Hello, Monday Night Football! The Lions also snagged another WR and a running back – both of which only serve to increase depth and provide a healthy (fingers crossed) Matt Stafford with options on offense. Rest easy, fans, if the 2011 NFL season ever starts, we might be decent.


After a thorough trouncing of their first round opponent, the Red Wings flew to California following a lengthy rest

and promptly got their plane turned back around facing a two-game deficit to the San Jose Sharks. Whoops. Problems are plaguing the team that hasn’t surfaced all season: namely, discipline. That and a distinct inability to capitalize on opportunities have Wingers worried. The Sharks have looked sharper, more aggressive and less frazzled leading up to Game 3. A home stand for Detroit is critical this week — and with octopi flying, I’ll take the Wings. Here’s hoping we’re headed West after Friday night with everything all square at 2.


With the Detroit pro team doing more golfing than gaming these days, it’s hard for me to get excited about NBA hoops. However, if there was one series you might flip TNT on for: it’s happening now. And apparently, a great many people are tuning in: ratings for the NBA playoffs this season are through the roof. The Miami Heat is up 2-0 on the Boston Celtics in an Eastern Conference semifinal series that should be the Finals. Really, I’m just hoping Miami and Los Angeles keep winning. LeBron and Kobe in the Finals would only help to increase the NBA take on the ratings and might inspire those of us who can’t stand professional basketball a reason to watch. I’ll be holding my breath. Andi Osters, 28, is a Michigan State graduate.

For speedy sushi, try Akagi Akagi Japanese Restaurant is another gem in the Okemos strip mall hidden behind Marsh Road. Why I never went to this area until recently is beyond me. So far I’ve been 2-for-2 with fantastic ethnic food.

The scene

If you’re looking for an upscale dining experience, you’ll want to visit one of the other places in the Lansing area that caters to that. Akagi is the spot for takeout or for a casual, affordable meal. There’s nothing flashy about the place, but it’s authenic and satisfying. The restaurant has only a couple of tables so takeout may be less of a hassle. Make sure you check the hours before you visit. Agnes and I made the mistake of going right as they were closing after lunch. They were kind enough to squeeze us in, but we had to take it to-go. The food was packaged in Styrofoam containers and set in a plastic bag, and included plenty of soy sauce packets and napkins. Past revie ws online

The food Akagi has your essential Japanese cuisine, including sushi. Almost all dishes and combinations include salad, pasta salad, rice and/or miso soup, but the soup is not included with takeout orders. Adding the miso soup is $1.05 extra, which is a little bit of an inconvenience. For those dining in, green tea is served. Lunch specials are posted on the counter with photos, all of which look appetizing. We decided to share the shrimp tempura set and a California roll. The shrimp combination comes with five pieces of deep-fried shrimp, five pieces of deep-fried

vegetables, green salad, pasta and steamed rice. The white rice was a heaping serving, with sesame sprinkled on top. The tempura was especially good. The California roll was divided into six pieces, with Akagi’s own crab salad mix and fresh avocado. Dinner specials also are available, with different items on special on different days. A popular selection on Fridays and Saturdays is the Akagi combo, four pices of California roll, four pieces of sashimi, two pieces of shrimp, three pieces of vegetable tempura, teriyaki chicken, green salad, pasta and steamed rice — all for $13.70.

The damage

$18.95 (including tax)

Next time

In the future, I’ll visit when they’re not about to close, of course, so I can dine-in. During the lunch hour, two rolls of sushi (California, shrimp tempura, salmon avocado, eel or spicy tuna) is $7.95, and comes with miso soup.

You’re being pulled in two directions at once, thanks to a schizophrenic moon. You might be thinking about a former flame while, at the same time, you’re pursuing a brand new flirtation.

Mars is increasing your need for instant gratification. If your sweetheart has to work late, you’ll demand that he or she call in sick to spend time with you.

You’re feeling restless about your own achievements and wondering if you need to make a change.
