The Project, Pt. 2: Growing Up Brady

This is part two of a series that began in the Dec. 20 issue of The Reader. Read Pt. 1 here.

A quick scan of the internet showed that The Brady Bunch house had been on the market for more than a year. Once we finally got a look inside, we found out why.

From Juggernaut to Commission: 16 Days in February

The first four and half hours of the Revenue Committee hearing on February 6 on Legislative Bill 405, one of the Governor’s proposals to eliminate state income tax for a broader sales tax, seemed noisy and riddled with insider banter.

Dirty Dancing: Singer/Songwriter Taps into the Power of Porn

To say the video that feature’s Nebraska musician Eli Mardock’s song “The King of the Crickets” is NSFW (Not Safe for Work) would be an understatement.

Titled “Double the Pleasure,” the video opens with the sound of Mardock’s somber piano chords as two young women in bikinis -- Francesca and Caprice -- nuzzle on a cushioned wicker beach chair sipping cocktails. As they kiss, an MTV-styled...
