holiday music: a unicorn in the veldt?

I don’t generally go for holiday music. If I forget to bring in something good, I might resort to a Pandora station based around some jazzy or piano holiday tunes. My usual fallback is Christmas Cocktails 1 and 2, with...

culture war: did Colbert humble Kanye?

Props to Hello, Negro for pointing out that I need to watch The Colbert Report. The last episode I watched in full was when Amy Sedaris was on and somehow Paul Dinello snuck in there as well. She pointed out...

holiday: La Bouche Thursday

As Kyle and I were making our way through glasses of sangria and litres of his unpronounceable heifer-something beer, we declared that night a Bon Jovi Friday, even though it wasn’t really one. However we knew that the next Wednesday...

video: we’re the dancers…

Today was a hell day at the office. I went in earlier than usual to avoid the security delays resulting from a special visitor, so I feel like I’ve been in the office way longer than usual. Had a hell...

RjDj: your life’s soundtrack, remixed

I am so hooked on this iPhone app RjDj. While it’s author has a hard time explaining exactly what the app does, it basically takes in the sounds from your iPhone’s headset microphone, treats them like samples and mixes and...

and it isn’t even 9 yet?!

Finally! Brisk weather! Praise Jeebus. This also meant that I was sort of freezing my tush off while moving around the house this morning before heading out, but I’ll take this over the heat we’ve had the past few days....

80s: It’s worked so far, but we’re not out yet.

It’s been a pretty uneventful morning which, for a Friday, is not too shabby. I wouldn’t really know what’s taking place in the here and now anyway as I’ve been listening to an 80s mix from Strom Carlson that Scott...

It is also not a charity ball…

Danie got me started this morning, so she is surely to blame for this. I’m sure we all have those moments where we reminisce about old tv shows and theme songs and how cheesy they were. And while you lose...

Music is for profit, not fun!

I won’t say that I didn’t see this coming, but I have been dreading it. Pandora may be near shutting down. Last year, an obscure federal panel ordered a doubling of the per-song performance royalty that Web radio stations pay...

be afraid: binaural beats

Just reading a cyberscare, “won’t someone think of the children” article about binaural beats, called “idozers/idosers”: We all know that music can alter your mood. Sad songs can make you cry. Upbeat songs may give you an energy boost. But...

The first step…

Ok, I admit it, I have a problem. I heard a catchy tune while out drinking and it’s now stuck in my head. I’m not really ashamed by this… really! But it is a song by the Pussycat Dolls, “When...
