Reviving The Dead

Decided to revive my old blog here for a while. A lot has changed since 2007, a new job, new toys, new dog….

Will post some pics soon, in the meantime enjoy this little gem:

Crazy but true. I am now a home owner, complete with mortgage and all the headaches that go along with renovating a 40 year old house.

 

RIP Radiohead.

October 11, 2007

I consider myself to be a fairly loyal radiohead fan. I own a few shirts, and something like 35 albums ranging from live  and studio to imports and b sides. Needless to say, I was looking forward to the release of “in rainbows”

So like 100 million other people, I woke up ealry this morning and jumped on my favorite torrent site to download what I thought would be radiohead’s latest jewel.

 10 hours later, im still confused. Only 3 good tracks? And they had 4 years to work on it? They could have just released “in raindows” as a 5 song EP.

 No wonder they let you pay what you wanted for it….

 I’m still a fan, but I expected a lot more.

Movin On Up!

May 9, 2007

Moving time makes you realize just how organized, or unorganized of a person you are. I, of course, am a very unorganized person. So, therefore, it is 48 hrs. before I am supposed to move, and I haven’t even started packing. I actually just got started thinking about getting some boxes….

I have grown quite sick of Nashville in the last few months. Too congested, and people tend to be quite rude. I think there is a little too much money here? Or maybe a lack of good people with money. Either way, the atmosphere becomes stifling often.

14 years is long enough…

So Long Tennessee!

Guitar Hero

May 3, 2007

Where have all the good guitar players gone? Surely they are still out there? Back in the day you could pick up a record and know who the guitar player was by just listening to the tone and style. Now, if you aren’t using a triple quadruple rectumifier, you ain’t cool. What happened to the days of good old fashioned guitar heroes?

There is one. Granted, he’s not the best player, but he has a signature tone. Enter Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I thought I would get bored of his tone real quick, but it’s just so massive. You forget that they don’t have a bass player.

So props to Nick for doing what no one has in a long time….
