Ah, this…simply glorious in all it’s 80s splendor! Mullets (things of wonder, architecturally unsound yet resplendent in their glory), androgynous dress, spiky ginormous hair, weird leather and weirder suits, Doc Martens (spray-painted!), strange, nonsensical settings and graphics, and a bunch of young boys in leather running amok, and headbands! Perhaps intending to grasp some Mad […]
My son just introduced me to this video by the British group “Bars and Melody“: Hopeful. The guys sing/rap quite well, but I find the anti-bullying message of this song powerful. It looks like this is a key part of their identity, which I fully support. Now, it’s important to note, this video is from […]
I’ve been hoping for YouTube to make upgrading to Red family plans easier for a few months. Imagine my delight to read this, then: So I scurried over and clicked the “Upgrade Now” button, and…well…nope: I thought myself so clever, setting up my family on a Google Apps “Standard Edition” (ancient predecessor for G […]

Ed Sheeran has not been terribly exciting to me. However, his song, Castle On The Hill delights me deeply. It’s opened me up to exploring more of his music. What do you think?
I’ve not been a fan of Christmas music, not for a long rime. So much is cheesy schlock. We’ll, Pentatonix fixed that for me. This is my favorite somg of 2016. Amd might well be my favorite ever.
Pretty trippy and weird. Which fits my mood of late. Plus, well, it really is nice weather for ducks.
Earlier this evening I attended a performance by Aaron Strumpel at my church. Talking to the musicians afterwards, I was reminded of several ways that modern technology is changing the music business. Yeah, there’s tech impacting performance, but that’s not really what’s got me jazzed right now. No, it’s the way the music business is […]
