Because, well, I love music.

Okay. I’ve had this music meme sitting in my drafts since 2006. 2006! I remember thinking back then that “oh, I’ll just write this post tomorrow” and here it is, 10 years later! Either way, I really enjoyed this, though some of my music related memories are a bit difficult to recall. Name 10 bands/singers […]

Where I ramble about music. A lot.

Jessa asked me a few questions a few weeks ago, and here are my answers. Finally. (Obviously, I like music a lot.) 1. What is your all-time favorite artist/band? What about song? Or album? I… don’t know where to even start with these questions. If you know me at all, you know I love music, […]

Two thousand and three.

Oh, 2003. How have five years passed since I rang in the new year with Kelly at her mother’s house in Connecticut, watching an Insomniac with Dave Attell marathon, driving to my parents’ house on January first, cursing the fact that while southern Connecticut bragged green lawns, Massachusetts streets were covered with the fluffy white […]

The story of my life

I’ve had the Social Distortion song ‘The Story of My Life’ in my head all day today after hearing it on Sirius yesterday evening. I hadn’t really heard much of Social Distortion besides ‘Ball and Chain’ before the incarnation of the 90’s alternative station on Sirius, but I’ve liked what I’ve heard. This weekend, I […]

Our BRMC trip. Or, how I can now die happy.

(Note: Some of this entry may not make sense to people who haven’t heard of or listened to a lot of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. But, I am still damn pumped and excited from seeing them live twice that I don’t really care. Important parts will be in bold if you are just skimming the […]

Holiday music

I’ve spent the past few days listening to Christmas music while crafting my Christmas cards. Call me strange, but I love Christmas music. I grew up listening to “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” by John Lennon, “Wonderful Christmastime” by Paul McCartney, “I Saw Father Christmas” by Greg Lake (don’t ask me why, but I love […]

Band crush

So, I’ve officially gone nuts over a band for the first time since high school. How do I know this? As I said to a friend of mine last night who fully appreciates those who love music, I feel the same way I did when I had crushes in high school, only the crush I […]

On seeing BRMC live, finally

I saw Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in Columbus, Ohio on Friday night and I’m still at a loss for words as to how to describe the show. By far, it’s been the best concert I’ve ever attended; they utterly and completely rocked live. Their voices, guitars, everything translated so beautifully live; I’m very happy to […]

Modern Life is Rubbish on vinyl!

Modern Life is Rubbish on Ebay! Oh ebay, why must you tempt me? I’d bid on this if the shipping costs weren’t so sucky. Still. Damn. I’d almost kill to own this on vinyl, as Modern Life is Rubbish is my all time #1 favorite album ever. Hell, this domain name comes from a song […]
