Adam Schlesinger

Since listening to Adam Schlesinger‘s new music project Fever High, which he produced, I’ve been going down the Adam Schlesinger rabbit hole.

Rock Stars doing the weather forecast

Now that February is over, hopefully there will be a reprieve of the amount of insane weather the east coast has faced so far this winter.  In any case, I just heard a clip of Ed Sheeran doing the weather and it occurred to me that he has not been the first rock star to […]

20 years

Lollapalooza celebrating its 20th year in existence reminded me of what my Dad used to ask when I was listening to my crazy music, “Are they going to be around in 20 years?”  But I don’t think he understood that much of pop music is of the moment, to be enjoyed for a few months […]

Good weekend/Bad weekend

First off,  Having a bad weekend I guess, is Harold Camping,  head of Family Radio.  The Rapture is over with for now.  People have been predicting the end of the World since the beginning of the World so on to 2012.  For some reason, my money will always be on Science for these predictions.
