SORT BY Relevancy
The green canopies of the Fourth Coast Cafe jut out from the old brick building near the corner of Vine street and Westnedge avenue in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The only twenty-four hour cafe in the city and, as far as I know, in the state is a social hub for a community of college students, alumni, free thinkers, and everyone else. It's a shining beacon of warmth and caffeine in even the darkest and coldest nights. The side door might be closed in the winter, but the front door is never locked.
As I enter through the glass door, the scent of coffee mingles with the smell of the street and the smoke of a couple on the sidewalk talking about politics, philosophy, and the latest additions to their record collections. To the right of the stairway, which leads up to the Crow's Nest restaurant, is another glass door which swings into the cafe. My ears are treated to snippets of conversations ranging from chess moves to stories of drunken debauchery. To my left, a barista turns on an industrial sized coffee grinder as another presses levers on a well used espresso machine, eliciting a low hiss as espresso fills a tiny metal cup. The place smells of old art, new coffee, fresh tea, and human energy. This coffee shop is where people come to meet with old friends and new minds. This is where they come to plan, and at times even create, new works of poetry, drawings, novels, and everything else which breaths life into life. This place is the living breath of Kalamazoo.
I add a little sugar to my drink and fall in love with the dull clank of the spoon against the thick walls of the tall glass cups the cafe uses. I look around and see that my usual table, in the center of the room, is taken, so I make my way to the bar stools and take a seat there. The chairs are surprisingly comfortable for being simple wooden seats. It's clear that the cafe knows well that people come here to stay for long periods at a time.

Elvis Found Alive
Legendary 76-year-old rock ‘n roller Elvis Presley is alive and well, and he’s ready to make his comeback. According to a new documentary, Elvis Found Alive (directed and produced by Joel Gilbert, also responsible forPaul McCartney Really Is Dead), not only is Elvis alive, he’s waiting for Barack Obama to leave office before he shows his face in public and picks up his music career where he left off. You see, Barack Obama, Captain Nazi, and their minions would like to shut Elvis down–permanently.
There were two major influences on Elvis’ life…his mama and…Captain Marvel Jr.???
But wait! There’s more! According to the very same documentary, Elvis and Captain Marvel Jr. have led amazingly parallel lives–right down to faking their own deaths for the sake of their (mutual) country. Because Elvis is still in danger (don’t forget, he was placed in Kalamazoo by the Witness Protection Program because of his daring work as a DEA agent–and that’s not Dead Entertainers Association), he chose to appear before cameras in silhouette.

Occupy the Media Collective
Tonight on Sports Talk with Benson we'll discuss many topics including Watt As Tight End, Riley To Huskers, MLB Trade Value, GameDay Kickoff, Watch Him Meow, and more! If J.J. Watt played tight end, he'd be better than Rob Gronkowski. He's just a tad busy to switch. Nebraska has hired Oregon State's Mike Riley. Florida also picked a new coach: Jim McElwain. With the winter meetings looming, Jonah Keri rolls out his annual rank of MLB's 50 most valuable assets. Six games (just six) will directly impact the playoff race, but how much chaos will really ensue? He's not drinking milk from a saucer and he's not eating mice, but Ray Kaunisto of the Kalamazoo Wings takes the "Super Troopers" cat game to lofty levels. We appreciate the shenanigans. Fans you too can be a part of the show if you call in at (347) 857-4527
