15 Albums That Changed My Life – Part 3

Secret World Live (1994)

This is the 3rd and final part in a series about 15 Albums That Changed My Life. This list originally came from a Facebook post where one of your friends would tag you and you’d have to chime in. Here was the original “question” that was posed: “Think of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you that they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in … Continue reading

Jackopierce – Everywhere All The Time

Jackopierce - Everywhere All The Time (2012)

I don’t buy much music these days, and the instances of me buying a full album are even fewer and further between.  However, when Jackopierce comes out with a new album I make an exception every time.  This album – Everywhere All The Time – was long delayed and highly anticipated and I’m happy to say that it didn’t disappoint.  In general this is a much more “poppy” album that I’m used from from the boys.  That said, … Continue reading

Let The Lyrics Speak To You

The Verve Pipe - Underneath

I’m a huge fan of lyrical music.  Sure a good beat and melody can get you moving on the dance floor, but for a song to truly “touch” me it’s got to have great lyrics.  I’m also something of a romantic and a family man as you’ll see from my choices.  There are quite certainly other songs that I love from a lyrical standpoint but these stood out as my favorites.

Jackopierce – Mile High – Live From Soiled Dove In Denver

Mile High - Live From Soiled Dove in Denver

I bought this one directly … Continue reading

Thoughts For Monday

IU Football

The goddamn jackhammer is back.  We’ve had a week of silence so this comes as a very unwelcome shock to the system.  All I can say is this better be the best restaurant in downtown Cleveland when they’re done. Mondays suck.  They suck even worse when Sunday night is bad. Mobile devices are now officially the bane of my existence.  This includes cell phones, BlackBerrys, etc.  Sure they’re nice when you REALLY need to get … Continue reading

Jackopierce Live From Atlanta

Jackopierce - Live From Atlanta

For years, one of my favorite bands has been Jackopierce.  I started listening to them in high school and have been enjoying their music ever since.  For those of you that don’t know, Jackopierce is made up of Jack O’Neil and Cary Pierce.  The band was formed in 1988 while they both attended college in Dallas.  They recorded 6 albums including my favorite Live From The Americas before going their separate ways in 1998.  Pip … Continue reading
