Music Time! “Non-Synth” Edition 10/22/16

20160928_233341

So it’s 3:30 in the morning and I’m still up. I’m tired, but my legs are bothering me (nerves from my car wreck and subsequent back surgery) and I’m out of meds. So I’m drinking alcohol as that helps calm the nerves down (I wish we had medical marijuana in Texas as that would really help).

In the meantime… some music. Most of the times I concentrate on synth-based music (Electro, EBM, Futurepop, Synthpop, Synthwave, etc), but tonight I’m going to tell MediaMonkey to ignore all those genres and play non-synth music.

I saw this band in Birmingham, Alabama a few years ago when they played with IAMX.

Music Time! Water Edition… 5/14/16

RainHeader

So we got a little water logged today, so what’s the shuffle got for “water?” We got soaked. By soaked I mean standing in a cold waterfall with clothes on for an hour followed by full blown pneumonia 30 minutes later. The rain came on hard and we had to scramble to get the canopy down, everything packed up, into the car, and then get ourselves in. We weren’t fast enough and the rain was too hard and too fast. Drenched!
