Sinéad O’Connor – Black Boys On Mopeds

I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got

If you know me and you know you my taste in music you know I’m a huge fan of low key lyrical tunes. That said I’ve long been a fan of  Irish singer-songwriter Sinéad O’Connor who’s probably best known for her cover of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U”. That song was released as part of O’Connor’s second studio album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got and while it’s a great song, it’s not even … Continue reading

What a Message… We’re Not Gonna Take It

Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry

Last week, Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider released an acoustic version of one of my all time favorite songs: “We’re Not Gonna Take It”. This acoustic version was released to compliment Snider’s work with D.C. lawmakers to update outdated laws governing music. The song was originally released on the 1984 album titled Stay Hungry (along with a slew of other great tunes). It has come back into the main stream as of late when … Continue reading

Star Wars Medley A Cappella

Star Wars Acapella

Been a while since I’ve done one of these posts but I went down a YouTube spiral this morning and ran across this video once again. In it, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots join the cast of Star Wars The Force Awakens for an a cappella tribute to Star Wars. It’s glorious.

Late To The Party – Rachel Platten’s Fight Song

Rachel Platten - Fight Song

I imagine I’m going to catch a bit of flack on this one as it proves just how out of touch I am but that’s OK. If you know anything about me you know my iPod (which is ancient) is full of stuff like Zeppelin, Floyd, Van Halen and Jackopierce and the occasional “new” song. I saw Rachel Platten perform “Fight Song” on New Year’s Eve during one of the far-too-long extravaganzas and it caught … Continue reading

I Will Not Be That Guy – Cats In The Cradle

Family Fall Day

Apologies in advance for a sappy post. You’ve been warned. If you know anything about me you know that my family is the most important thing in the world to me. I don’t blog about family stuff all that much these days partially because I’m a bad blogger and partially for privacy and security reasons for my kids. I’ve got three boys who mean everything to me. I’ve got a Wife who is so far … Continue reading

The Force Awakens And My Anticipation Grows

The Force Awakens

It’s San Diego Comic Con season. Geeks have flocked from around the world to dress up, get exclusive toys and be the first to see new footage and new projects announced. Both The Walking Dead and Ash Vs. Evil Dead dropped new trailers and while Star Wars didn’t release a new trailer, they released this video which has me drooling: And as an aside… I love the fact that they’re basically taking jabs at Lucas and … Continue reading

Tables, Ladders & Chairs… Oh My – Live From Cleveland!

TLC 2014 Poster

The WWE held their annual TLC – Tables – Ladders – Chairs PPV last night in Cleveland and Marko and I were in attendance! Ever since the WWE Network was launched we’ve been getting together on a monthly basis to watch the PPVs but with this one being in our home town we decided to get tickets and be there live. Overall it was a very enjoyable show and it was super exciting to be … Continue reading

Michelle Branch Is Everywhere… Including My iPod

Everywhere Cover - Michelle Branch

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these music posts, but I was doing some work the other day and “Everywhere” by Michelle Branch shuffled through my iPod and I just had to write about it. This song was one of my absolute favs back when it was released. “Everywhere” comes from the 2001 debut album of Michelle Branch called The Spirit Room.  It rose to #12 on the Billboard charts and to … Continue reading

13 Years Later I’ve Not Forgotten – Have You?

September 11th

I’m sitting down and continuing my “tradition” of putting some thoughts on virtual paper on this anniversary of September 11th. Another year has passed.  Another war has started. The vast majority of people have forgotten.  It’s sad, but it’s true. I’ve seen people go about their day today like it’s any other day.  I saw dreadfully few flags being flown this morning on my way to work.  I’ve received marketing emails “using” the events of … Continue reading
