Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Kevin Truong What keeps Miss Ruby on top of her game? The four divine “P’s,” that’s what—Patience plus Persistence plus Passion equals Payoff!

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Bryan West Hot…Stuff! What do these words conjure up for you my darlings? Sizzling French fries? An arousing piece of art? How about the timeless tune made famous by the legendary disco diva Donna Summer, a featured number in the Tony-award winning musical, Priscilla Queen of The Desert? It’s electrifyingly [...]

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Mitchell Anderson I miss Karen Carpenter. Every time I hear her angelic voice on a recording it soothes and stimulates my whole being.

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Erik Stein Last summer I was joyfully transported through time and space to Czarist Russia by Erik Stein’s boffo performance as Tevye the milkman in the classic musical, Fiddler on the Roof.

Ruby’s Rap by Ruby Comer Sophie B. Hawkins Sophie B. Hawkins’s music is like her lover—it exposes, inspires, and even threatens. Yummy. After reading this revelation in an interview of this singer, songwriter, and musician, I knew I’d bond with this gal. Over the past two decades, Sophie’s had many chart busters. In the early [...]
