Did you know Indiana is home to brain sandwiches? Have you heard about our square donuts? And have seen the life-sized statue of the diminutive Pope Pius X at our very own Cathedral Museum here in Fort Wayne? All these and more are collected in the new edition of Jerome Pohlen’s Oddball Indiana: A Guide to 350 Really Strange Places. It’s perfect for new and old Hoosiers alike, and updated from the previous nearly decade-old edition.

I Am the Death of Music, Jeff
Back in 2006, local musician Mark Hutchins used a cassette recorder to record music as New Pale Swimmers.

So enjoy some of the music scene from last decade again in a new way.
