After bumping NaS all morning, just before I left my room for the door; one thought came to my head…Today needs some Sugarland. To kick it off. Probably played this song before. That’s okay. Amazing track that deserves multiple of replays. The first time I heard the heartbreaking lyrics was in a Maryland bar during Karaoke. A friend of a friend, who eventually became my friend, sang it. Her vocal performance was amateurish at best & nothing that compares to Jennifer Nettles…however, got the feeling she had sang it multiple times before by herself…in her room / car. You could feel the deep wound she carried. Just wonderful.
I’ve been in a blue mood for the past couple of days. Should be happy. Today is technically work Friday. We have to wrap three shows in 10 hours. Won’t be getting out till late. Then Wing Night. And ETC. I’m on call tomorrow too. So, the grind don’t stop. Here’s some country sadness to kick off the Easter weekend. Be safe. Have fun.
It is. It truly is. Day three of another crappy work day. This new reigme is tasking. Nothing else to say. Hopefully, some music will follow.
It all is going to be okay. Be ok. Yesterday, our office went through a new regime change. Game of Thrones style. The queen is dead. Long live the King. The king had some issues with me with a handful of confusing aspects. Which didn’t set a good foot in the right way with the office’s ruling princess. It gonna be a challenging week. But after 2 years…the office is finally united. No more civil wars.
Anyway, Ingrid dropped her new album today. On tax day. Haven’t listened to it yet. Planning on. Might keep my mind off of the tragic day we’re about to cover.
Romantic love song / cover coming at you.
I survived Vegas. What happens there. Stays there. So, no spoilers from me. Had a blast. Left with little money that were traded for lasting memories. Really needed the mind break. Nothing like getting swindled by clever formulas & sexy bitches. #goodtimes Today’s song spawned from a song that my buddy Ross had on his many music mixtapes that mostly featured songs from movies / trailers. “Long Way Down” by Goo Goo Dolls was featured on the Twister SDTK. Which made me focus on ‘A Boy Named Goo’. Then stumbled across this classic, “Name”.
Big thanks to the Vim Dicta for sponsoring our decent showcase review as much as they did. Can’t wait to see them in a few weeks!
Loved having Mad Men back. Last night’s episode was fantastic. Welcome to Easter Monday. Two more pretapes to go & a regime change born.
Went with the classic. The theme song for generations of party animals. Should I say ‘Mad Men’ even? We made it. Another day. Another life. Just gotta make it 9+ hrs then adventure awaits. Back to the sin. A city that feels like my second home. The…’Viva Las Vegas’. Hope you enjoyed the Vegas week. Been fun. Been so tempted to change the music preferences in spotify that Vegas themed tracks were what I was all about the week of April 4th. Might have one more in me on Monday. I’ll keep y’all wondering…if I come back. hehe
No Spotlight Saturday. We did post another showcase review last night. Have you read about the Vim Dicta yet??? Truly recommend them. The pictures were okay. When I come back gonna try to hustle like Picksysticks. He be busy! Feel like Sam Smith is in my future. Just maybe.
We made it. Have a fantastic weekend readers. I’m off!
A little cheesy pop to kick-off Thursday. One Day away from Vegas. All I’m thinking about is what’s going to be THE song to start tomorrow. Two choices. One classic…might i say a Flashback. The other from an album that made our 2013 Fav Albums list. Siding with the former.
I’m a bit tired. CBW isn’t to blame either. Stayed up a bit longer to read Claremont’s “Nightcrawler” that my friend gave me. Very 1990s X-Men in feel. The homages to that time were a nice touch.
Nothing else to say. Here’s a really bad song / music video. The hook is the only thing that saves it. But my god…no vegas in a song called Vegas girl? Cheap bastards. Let’s get it…
Vegas week day 3, and we’re on our Ric Flair shit! Wooooo. I’ve written alone in Vegas before too Push. Spent a many Vegas nights in a hotel room, staring at the back…not so glamorous side…of city out the window. I’ll never forget those teenage Vegas nights. Made me the writer I am today. Inspirational BLVD of broken dreams. You will always be romantic. Probably why I love returning?
Vegas isn’t fun for kids. Kind of is now, but back then maybe 10…15 years ago. All I could do was walk around, collect a coin cup, eat at a buffet, or spend my quarter & dimes in the various arcades. I liked it. Still not ideal. 21+. That’s when the fun really begins. Don’t waste any time before. Go see the Grand Canyon or something. Substantial experiences.
Comic Book Wednesday brings nothing really. I have one book? Hickman’s East of West, I believe. We’ll see if we decide to travel. WonderCon is approaching. Saving my money for pointless figures. Hint of Dr. Who SWAG.
More pretapes to prep. It never ends. King Push…take it away.
PS: RIP Ultimate Warrior! What weird timing…
Day 2 of Vegas Week kicks off with an classic Calvin Harris. The track came out way before Mr. Harris hit the spotlight with “We Found Love”. This is a EDM track for EDM lovers. Bouncy. Repetitive. Bit of annoying. Keeps your body in motion for almost 6 minutes. No lows. All highs. Way before perfection. If you’re in Vegas, recommend bumping this anthem. Make you look cool to the outsiders. You can find Calvin at a nightclub around the city now & then. Vegas is EDM’s second home in the US because Miami is the leader. Everyone knows this..
New Music Tuesday brings you new albums from Black Label Society, Emmylou Harris, Patton Oswald’s Comedy Record, James Durbin, Eric Hutchinson, EMA, and many more, Kind of a slow week for mainstream hits…but you should always try new things. That you should.
Guess what? Our first showcase review since February drops Thursday! Petaped goodness. Two more to go. Until then…let’s keep dreaming of Vegas! Calvin press those buttons.
I’m in Vegas mode! Despite the fact I’m five days off from my weekend excursion. Boo! I’ll get there. So, as you can probably expect due to my lack of effort, I will be featuring Vegas themed tracks-songs-artists through Friday. Today’s track is a song I featured before in our lost blogger days. One of my favorite tracks from Sara. She doesn’t perform it much anymore…still, captures the lofty ideals of someone who needs to just get away. Something she did quite recently that became the theme of her 2013 critically acclaimed ‘Blessed Unrest’. Spontaneous things always start as a “little voice”, don’t they? Anyway, great life transitional track.
So much TV, so many flicks, that made for a fun weekend. Yes, including Wings. Did pass out all day Saturday much to my dismay. Still fun to recover. We all need a break. That’s why we travel to Vegas. Happy Monday!
Made it to Friday! Weekend coming soon after this long day retires. Been in a major country mood, like many of my previous blurbs can backup. All the ACM promos has got me dreaming of tight cutoff jeans dancing in line dance. “Don’t Drink The Water” by Brad & Blake really is a twangy track that works for that kind of party. With red solo cups. If you’re not big into the genre…this is a track that might make you laugh.
Nothing else really. More work, movies, final four, hustlin’, friends, and handling my business. Got Capt. America on my mind. Only thing I want to do. Should be amazing!
Here’s some country. Yee-Haw!
