Rad Stuff

9, Sep 2014

Sometimes the amount of cool stuff I have on my radar makes it impossible to fit into one Facebook post, and thus another “Rad Stuff” post is born.  I have some really great friends putting out records this week.  Czech it: RAD LISTENS The Belle Sounds – Blackstone This band is amazing. Every time I […]

iTunes and Rad Stuff

24, Jul 2014

Ok, we’re finally up on iTunes…here is the link if you like to download musics on lovely Apple devices with little to no effort on your part. The cool news is this little record is currently (as of this typing) #59 on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart. This means at least one person has purchased it […]

Good Musical Moments

30, Jun 2014

I’m supposed to be packing for a real honest to goodness vacation I am taking this week to see a bunch of my family and see my awesome niece, Cathy, get married to a cool dude named Matt.  In Wisconsin.  After I fly to Albuquerque and collect my mom.  And then we drive to Minnesota […]

Ugh. I hate to be typing this, but here is a link to an Indie Go Go fundraiser for John Jennings who is fighting metastatic kidney cancer. You can read all the details at the site but he has had surgeries and is canceling his touring with Mary Chapin Carpenter this summer and his other […]

This Gaga photo has nothing to do with anything. “Do it right the first time.” I guess I would say I ascribe to this saying. It’s common, it’s one of those oft-repeated sayings from school and childhood used to ward off mediocrity and slackerness. Except I’m realizing that mantra is not always the best or […]

Here’s a Teaser

14, Apr 2014

Making trailers for things that aren’t movies seems to be hip these days, so I decided to gather up random footage of things in my brain and shove them all together into a minute-long clip. There is indeed a bit of one of the songs from the new EP here to listen to…once you get […]

This is Gaga working hard for it. This business is hard. All business is hard, but the music business is hard, especially for the indie DIY type that is trying to make a living while being a good business person and being an artist. Oftentimes this level of artist is doing everything…booking, practicing, writing, promoting, […]

I love musicians who have paid their dues, played the crap gigs to get to the good ones, are masters at their instrument, write their own songs, and push the limits of their genre. This is why I like a lot of singer-songwriters in many genres. This is why I love Lady Gaga. There is […]

If All Goes As Planned

13, Mar 2014

I will see Lady Gaga live tonight at SXSW. Color me thrilled!

Allow me to blog this topic again. Always…I am always self-justifying my pop music addiction (affliction?). Usually to myself, not even to the outside world. Perhaps people don’t “get” it, as they scroll past my Facebook updates and I have posted another Gaga video, and while I take the occasional “ew that is crap” comment […]
