When is the last time you heard a really good punk band from the Midwest? For me, I think it’s been almost a decade since I heard something new and exciting in punk from out there. Back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, I was crazy about listening to bands such as Motion City … Read More
We’re hosting a Labor Day weekend BBQ this Saturday. I’ve asked each guest to bring along one favorite dish – a side dish, appetizer, or a dessert, though I typically have the desserts covered. I thought it would be fun for each of us to try each other’s dishes, try something new. (Hope my guests see … Read More
Today’s music video is from a hip hop guy that churned out a big hit with a rock song. Today it’s Everlast with “What It’s Like”. This is a great and yet under rated song.
It’s time for another segment of Bad Music Good Artist. We all remember and love Dee Dee Ramone for his bass work for legendary band The Ramones. Who doesn’t love it when just before a Ramones song starts you hear Dee Dee shout “1234!”. Dee Dee might be punk legend but some of you may … Read More
Have fun but be respectful. Please leave a caption in the comment section. We were on our way to the Knitting Factory and found a parking spot. Guess what van was parked right behind us? How can you not take a picture?

Although I shouldn’t be because my initial reaction to seeing a group of “urban youths” was to immediately cross the street. As I saw upon further inspection that it was in fact a battle rap I … Read More
The first four nights have been quite a success so let’s keep this going. It’s a simple concept. Music lovers gather together trade homemade CD mixes, listen to acoustic music from cool upcoming artists, drink beer and eat great BBQ at Q in Port Chester. A big thank you to all of you that have … Read More
I am a fan of Meiko. A big fan. It happened many years ago (2007) when I got a cd in the mail from her manager Mike Savage. I opened the mailer and of course the first thing you notice is that Meiko is quite striking and very cute. Never a bad thing. I put … Read More
Singularly I have enjoy Nick Hornby and Ben Folds (solo and as the aptly named trio Ben Folds Five) so when I heard that they were collaborating on a new cd…well let’s just say my interest was piqued. If after watching this video you’re not piqued as well I feel like we should probably stop … Read More
