Burial

It took this video for me to like this song by Mike Snow. I wasn’t really into but the video definitely does it justice. Really high-quality video shot in India.

Music In My Head

I hope I never need hearing aids but now at least there are options to make my hearing as good or possibly better than before. Plus, I can have music right in my ears via external source- MP3 player, radio, etc… These are attached to your bone behind your ear via small titanium screws that

Second Skin

Great documentary about gaming addicts. It’s presented and put together in such a way that it teeters on the edge of fiction which is fitting given the subject matter but is very real, bizarre and beautiful at the same time. I thought I’d fall asleep watching it at 3 am but ended up watching the

Michael Jackson 1958-2009

Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know this is a little late but I wanted it to be proper and not just a sentence or 2 and 1 song. Nothing against those that did that but as a blog with a main focus on music I think this post deserved more attention. For most of us soul music

Lou Beach’s work is no secret though and new pieces are published on a consistent basis the same as they have been for over 30 years. Beach’s illustrations

Terry Rodgers

I love these guys work. Mostly because his paintings are like snapshots from my personal life as an international player…Ok, the secret’s out!

I don’t even like cigarettes! “Rodgers’ current work focuses on portraying

New and Old songs of tomorrow

Just want to post a couple goodies real quick. First up is a killer version of the Eagles’ classic “I Can’t Tell You Why” by none other than Chromeo!!?? Next is one of my favorite songs by the late great Sun Ra. After going to see King Britt & crew do their amazing “Saturn Never
