Keyword Music Search: The Best ‘Insane’ Songs (Courtesy of Denon)

The basic idea of the “Keyword Music Search” is that I type a keyword into my iTunes search function and then pick two or three of the best results that come up (I have over 15,000 songs and counting, so the choices are many and varied). Hopefully, this will be an interesting and novel way […]

Road Trip: The New Pornographers – Georgia Theatre – 4.17.08

So, maybe waiting four days to write a show review is not an auspicious start to revamping this blog and its accompanying commitment to more regular updates.

What a Reunion Show, I need to Stop Missing These Things…

i just ain’t buyin’ it…

this clip looks horribly staged and is 10 mins long so i wouldn’t blame you for not watching it…. apparently, Kelly Clarkson showed up at a Metal Skool (80’s metal cover band) and was recognized by the band who asked her on stage and then got her to drink straight out the bottle, as it […]
