Music Time! “Sleep” Edition. 7/23/16

20160110_101013

Apparently my body and brain think I’m still in Mountain time and I should wake up at 0600. While something startled me awake (probably a jackass slamming his car door), I couldn’t get back to sleep. So here I am… awake. Wanting sleep…

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!

2014, Thank You for the Music!

Man Listening to HeadphonesI usually put this out at the end of the year, but I still had some music to import into my library and wanted to make sure I had everyone on the list!

2014 was a great year for music. It wasn’t as an amazing year as 2013 was for quantity, but what it lacked in quantity it certainly made up for with quality. A lot of great bands that I love put out new music in 2014.

I’m a huge fan of EBM, Futurepop, Industrial Dance, Synthpop, New Wave, etc. I’m always happy to see the scene continue to produce new bands and great music. And this year marked new albums by some bands a few of us older folks will recognize, like Billy Idol, Information Society, and Simple Minds!
