What’s Up Peekskill? A cold, silent, indifferent universe.


Saturday is Book Lover’s day — so maybe stop by and support your local library, where an art show titled “A Benign Indifference” about our cold, silent, indifferent universe is on display. Did you know that (Ben Franklin created the first lending library?) And check out this super-cool idea: Little Free Library. I don’t know about you, but I think knowledge rocks, otherwise how could we know our universe is cold, silent and indifferent? And libraries are full of knowledge. And Peekskill has a library, so… Peekskill Rocks!

What’s Up Peekskill? Summer Humidity


Well it’s summer. Humidity is the rule, not the exception. So ignore it best you can and get downtown and rock out. If you’re gonna sweat, might as well do something to make it happen. No point in sweating for no good reason. That’s how you P-Rock. If you got it, shake it!
