A new model
I’ve wanted to say this for a while, but worried it would come out wrong. Today, I will make my attempt. Ever since the birth of rock and roll, there’s been that band that rides the wave to the “toppermost of the poppermost”. The whole time they’re trying to enjoy themselves, but they know their days are numbered. There’s a fear that drives them, knowing it...

Kanye's Dope A$$ Beat
Ha! This is amazing. Zack and Kenneth were telling me that this is how the “beatmakers” do it in the “Atl”. It seems so simple. Don’t miss the very end, classic…
Mozart in 2009? We'd chew him up and spit him out!
What would happen if Mozart were alive today? After composing his first symphony at the age of four, he would be Time’s Man Of The Year. He and his family would move to Malibu Colony. He’d host Saturday Night Live. He’d sign with William Morris, who’d package a sitcom for him. It would fail, as all sitcoms do, and little Mozart would go on a drinking spree and end up in...
Rob Hitt found this, it’s genius…
(via ahomeboyslife) This is freaking cool. Key moment: 5:23 “He asked me what my name was, I was about to be like… uh, obama?”
If you are easily offended, maybe don’t watch this.
I'm feelin' bloggy today
Last night we celebrated Lauren’s b-day as well as my sister Becky’s. It was so much fun. Greek Town rules. We started out at Roditys where the waiters are all 60+ and they are CLASSIC! I’m talking rubbing your shoulders, lighting stuff on fire - the whole bit. After a million laughs and a few (dozen) bottles of rosé, we headed to IO Theatre. That’s really what I’m...
Twitter is like a psychographic version of strip... →
This was a cool article. If you have a tumblr, twitter, or even just a facebook you’ll no doubt identify with the guilt/remorse aspects he writes about.
I just found my old blog, circa ‘06/07. I had no idea it was still crawling around in cyberspace. What a strange journey I lead. Wouldn’t trade a second of it…

We have a winner!

I freaking love Wikipedia. There, I said it. →
The link above is the wikipedia page for a game my friend introduced to a bunch of us a few weeks ago, and since I’ve been using every gathering as an excuse to play it again. Get 8 or more people together, good friends, total strangers, whatever… The wiki may say a minimum of 4 people, but I find the more people, the better. Oh, also we give categories to the names you can write down...
I can always do some Ben Folds Five
I love my Maize…
I love my family. They joined a contest with this song they wrote.
I feel dirty...
As a songwriter, I look at every song within ear shot as a case study, and from an academic standpoint. Some of these songs are just awful, I don’t see any redeeming qualities at all. I mean, you expect a little cheese given the cause, but this stuff is BAD! Now, I’m a pretty low-key, modest guy, but screw this - I’m gonna enter this year…
Lauren says his voice is annoying. I like it. This...
Keeping things simple today, just a quick check-in. Plus text only entries look AMAZING on my new Vertigo theme. I’m heading down to the city (Chicago for those of you who don’t know) to help my buddies The Get Go with some back-ups. They’re in the studio recording with Mike Herrera for their upcoming Japanese release. I’m also going to be singing for The Scissors in the...

MetroMix's Biggest "Flops" of 2008 - CLICK HERE →
antpants: I just read this article that MetroMix in Cleveland wrote about their choices for the biggest flops 2008. What a frightening time we live in these days in the music industry. This might not be something that a lot of people can relate to, so maybe I’m just writing this to myself. It’s so hard to believe that a record that sells 1.2 million or 700k or 400k or even 80k can be looked at...
Wow, this year is really flying by so far!
