Song By Song Rebuttal To XRT's Most Overrated Songs

Song By Song Rebuttal To XRT's Most Overrated Songs
XRT is one of my favorite radio stations. In fact, since Q101′s demise, let’s face it the new station is not what the old one used to be, I listen to music on my phone. Am I a sellout? Sure, but I’m guaranteed to enjoy the music on my phone more than the radio and... Read more »

Who Would You Hologram?

Who Would You Hologram?
Michael Jackson was brought back to life on Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards. Well so to speak. He performed in hologram form a la Two Pack at Coachella. It was pretty creepy. Creepy even for hologramming a person who is no longer with the living. In my opinion the whole performance was awkward. The... Read more »

Bad Cover Songs That Make My Ears Bleed

Bad Cover Songs That Make My Ears Bleed
I wrote a post about cover songs that were better than the original. Just the same there are songs that should not be touched or do not do the original songs justice. Nothing is worse than a mess of cover album. I am looking at you Scarlett Johansson and your Tom Waits cover album. How... Read more »

How The Stomach Flu Stole Record Store Day

How The Stomach Flu Stole Record Store Day
So this is not the post Record Store Day article I planned on. Truthfully I hadn’t planned on it at all. I was going to let the series stand on its own and just appreciate the hunt. That was not meant to be. On Saturday I was felled by a nasty, brutal, and wretched stomach... Read more »

Record Store Day: Music Geek it Up With Me Tomorrow

Record Store Day: Music Geek it Up With Me Tomorrow
Records have survived compact discs and cassettes. They have thus far survived mp3s. I am happy see younger generations at record stores. I am glad that they are helping to keep the vinyl format alive. It is still the most pure way to listen to music. Yes, that last sentence is the mantra of music... Read more »

Record Store Day: I'll Listen to Whomever I Want

Record Store Day: I'll Listen to Whomever I Want
I do consider myself to be an uppity music snob. I trick myself into believing I am fighting the good fight. I snicker when a band like Motley Crue announces their “final” tour, yeah for this year maybe. We all know when they are attention starved and whatever STD they’ve caught has cleared up they...

Record Store Day: A Celebration for Music Geeks Like Me

Record Store Day: A Celebration for Music Geeks Like Me
I love music so much I am a geek about music. I am proud it is probably the geekiest thing about me. I am not a comic book geek, a RPG geek, nor a faberge egg geek if that is not a thing it should be. Faberge sounds like it would make a delicious omelet.... Read more »

Bruno Mars Out Shined The Red Hot Chili Peppers At The Super Bowl

I will admit when I heard Bruno Mars was going to be performing the half time show at the Super Bowl, I was skeptical. I grew even more skeptical when I heard that The Red Hot Chili Peppers would be making an appearance as well. Much to my surprise Bruno performed wonderfully. He put on... Read more »

When Cover Songs Are Better Than the Original

When Cover Songs Are Better Than the Original
I am an avid Spotify user and sometimes my ears are greeted with the pleasant sounds of a song or a band that I have never heard before. Sometimes I hear a song that is decades years old and it is new to me. I become disappointed in myself when this happens because I am... Read more »

Everyone should have their own theme song

I have been wondering lately, why is it that movies and television shows have soundtracks? Why am I disallowed to have my own theme song? Don’t you think every morning would be more amazing, or to be grammatically correct, amazinger, if you woke to your own epic orchestral theme? Sure it would be a little... Read more »
