not enough

how do you express the subtler, poignant feelings that grip like ice and don’t let up until an inevitable thaw in some unspecified future? twitter and facebook are full of pithy, creative, interesting bits of verbiage, but NONE of it allows any sort of deeper communication. maybe the only way to express and receive validation […]

Love my hobby!

I’ve been pretty absent over here, but finally have an excuse to post. I don’t like to toot my own horn in public, but in private? you bet! Here’re tweets from two iPhone developers that put out great games, telling everyone how great I am: These guys are pretty amazing themselves. Tim is a promotional […]

Twice now, in a very short period of time, I feel like I have given my all, my 110% to stay professional, pleasant, keep the lines of communication open, and connect on a real human level with another person whom I’m dealing with and/or negotiating with. Both times, I’ve been stupefied by the lack of […]

I am listening to these guys right now, in fact

I first heard these folks on The Sounds In My Head podcast, and the name of the album grabbed me. I grabbed the album, and the first track, a long, rambling jam instrumental made me want to play music again. The rest of the album defines current pop rock at its best, in my opinon. […]

This band has worked its way into my sound consciousness the past couple of days. I heard them on Insomnia Radio: Chicago, and they’re just LOVELY. Folk Pop that doesn’t stop being inventive, beautiful, and sweet without being boring or schmaltzy. Rue Royale: rue royale iTunes CDBaby MySpace

when it rains, it pours

This is an album that I can listen to over and over and over. I first heard these guys on the KCRW “Morning Becomes Eclectic” Video Podcast. Simply amazing. The combination of lush, guitar-heavy arrangements and the amazing vocal style of the lead singer makes this an easy recommendation. Band of Horses – Cease to […]

more music!

Here’s another band I have just found, and I dig them. They’re kinda sounding like Belle & Sebastian to me, and that’s not a bad thing. Pelle Carlberg – In a Nutshell eMusic iTunes
