My Secret Appreciation For Country Music...or...How The Dixie Chicks Brought Out My Inner Cowboy 02/08/14

I am not a fan of country music.  But I do have an appreciation for it.  That was not always the case though.  As a young kid into Punk, Metal, and Hip-Hop, Country music was everything I hated about music.

It wasn't as though I didn't have exposure to it growing up.  My mother would play her Eddie Arnold albums throughout the day when I was growing up.  I don't think we ever missed an episode of Hee Haw.  Still, I was young and aggressive and I wanted music that symbolized that.  It was not going to be Country.

Musical Thoughts - The RHCP and the infamous Super Bowl Halftime Show 02/22/14

Since I am still hearing about this I thought I would weigh in and share my 5 cent opinion.

The last time I checked the tickets that were sold for this event were for the Super Bowl.

CBGB Festival @ Times Square - New York NY 10/12/13 (Ice-T, Part 3 of 3)

I decided to walk to mile and a half up the Bowery to the next venue.  It is always a little intimidating walking a part of town in a city that I don't know.  Only its history.  I was pleasantly surprised by the revitalization of this part of town.  The outdoor cafes. The bustling night life.  I was truly enjoying the stroll in the wonderful weather when I quickly came up to my next destination.

Last 10 tracks shuffled randomly from my iPod - 2/18/14

I have about 26,000 songs on my iPod. Sometimes it is just fun to see what you get. It also reminds me of some great material that I do not always see when I am looking through all of the songs. These are the first 10 songs that came up when I hit shuffle this morning.

CBGB Festival @ Times Square - New York NY 10/12/13 (Killswitch Engage, Part 2 of 3)

I had never been on a NY subway...let alone by myself.  Sometimes when I think of NYC I still think of it as the 1970's NYC.  Sometimes a scary place.  I was pleasantly surprised.  My ride was actually enjoyable.  It was a short 6 minute commute to my next destination.  Santos Party House in Downtown Manhattan, near China Town.

CBGB Festival @ Times Square - New York NY 10/12/13 (Grizzly Bear & My Morning Jacket Part 1 of 3)

I really had no intention of going to this festival.  Just like the critics, I felt as though the Festival did not encompass the scene the CBGB's helped create in the 70's.  It wasn't even the same owners.  It is now a corporation and seemed to be opposite of what CBGB's was.  My opinion would change.
