13 states, 1 guy, an iPod and 5 minutes and 48 seconds of video

So I had this crazy idea a while ago that when I made my journey to the left side of the country that I wanted to make a time-lapse video of my trip. The first thing was to find a camera. Now, mind you, I already have three digital cameras, and the two point and … Read more

Music Industry: Hell-bent on self destruction

Every time I turn around it seems like one of the music industry organizations is doing the darnedest to destroy what's left of the tenuous grasp they have on their fate. Add to this companies like Wal-Mart turning off their DRM servers leaving hordes of purchasers with little to no option other than finding some … Read more

Spending the week at Summerfest

I am just about up with my week at Summerfest and getting ready to come on on this Tuesday and I have to say this is the coolest music festival I have ever had the pleasure of attending. So far over 200 bands have played on the various stages in the festival park, and a … Read more

Metallica should stay off the intarwebs

Metallica's latest WTF moment comes from a Listening Party they hosted in London where they invited journalists to come and listen to a few rough tracks off their upcoming album. Journalism is apparently a new concept to them, because after at least one of these folks posted a review ( a mostly positive one to … Read more

Amazon MP3 Downloads

I started playing with the Amazon MP3 Download service today and I have to say it’s pretty easy to use, and it incorporates itself nicely with your default player – in my case iTunes. The only thing I can see folks complaining about right off the bat is the download, but it’s tiny and non-intrusive. … Read more

Papa Roach, (hed) p.e. & Stealing December tear down Mr Small’s Last night Jeremy, Amanda and I went to the Zippo Hot Tour show in Pittsburgh (actually Millvale – but Pittsburgh is a bit more accurate), and I have to say it was awesome. Being the trio of coolness that we are, we got the … Read more

Musical blast from the past

I just finished watching Invincible with Mark Wahlberg. First off, this is a great movie and I highly recommend anyone to see it. It’s PG, so take the kids and have a good time. Wahlberg does a great job, and for the most part it is an accurate representation of Papale and his time spent … Read more

12 year old drummer – John Bonham reincarnated?

This kid is absolutely insane! I have been going to concerts for almost 20 years now. I have seen probably in the area of 150 bands play live – at 75 or so concerts. And I have never, ever, in my 33 years seen or heard anything like this kid. EVER! His name is Tony … Read more

Sony goes to hell…

I love it when a large company does something so inanely stupid – that it is forced to quickly and decisively eat the very crap it was trying to force down consumers throats. Sony falls into this category quite nicely. Way go, jackasses! So, in a world wind of complete and utter abandon, Sony began … Read more

Country music is just dumb (I have the proof!)

You have to kidding right? NO. I’m not. I’m not going to pull out the vague generalized bias card today, but this crap has to be stopped before someone actually likes it. What am I talking about you ask? Read on, I’ll explain. I was sitting in my ever-comfortable hospital bed the other day – … Read more
