For as long as I can remember, I’ve always thought music should evoke some sort of emotion – a smile, excitement even hysterical laughter.  One of the best feelings in the world is hearing one of your favorite songs come on the radio, your iTunes or cued up at a bar.  The initial recognition of […]

Hello, there.  Remember me?  Probably not.  I haven’t seen you for 3 months some time now. (Time? What is time, really?)  And for that, I apologize.  It has been impeccably poor timing in terms of being a missing person, since I’ve done more musical things in the past 3 months than I had in the year […]


Dear Dave Barnes, I apologize if this sounds out of line, but I need to tell you something. I woke up to your voice every weekday morning for 3 years. “Until You” remained my morning alarm for 3 years of my college career. I never once got sick of it and pressed snooze not only […]

Every time a Monday rolls around, it takes every ounce of my being to refrain from posting Monday, Monday by The Mamas and The Papas. Nothing at all against the song. I love the song. I just think I might be the only person on Earth who would find it funny or ironic. Glad I […]


There are a few things in life I will never understand. Why buttered toast always lands butter side down, the Kardashians, Donald Trump’s hair and why Dave Matthews band is so popular. That last one is truly a head scratcher for me. Despite the fact that all of his songs sound the same, each with […]


I spent a majority of yesterday’s work day listening to Band of Skulls after seeing their name on the 2012 Lollapalooza lineup.  Out of that big, long list, why was I attracted to a group with such a morbid name? Because it sounded familiar.  Do I know why? No, not a clue.  Generally, I try […]
