Lifelong project

I am not sure what time frame to reference. Maybe I can just say “nowadays”. Or maybe I’ve felt this way forever. There is just way more out there to learn and hear, than I will ever physically be able to experience, which makes me feel very stuck. I am finding this particularly lately with music … Continue reading

Conor Oberst Releases New Music

Conor Oberst Releases New Music

A kid whose scratchy, waving-wrecked vocals, with the 100-lifetimes-within-20-Earth-years wisdom, is now 34. Conor Oberst. The literature-singing, mood-swinging, gangly, edgy punk, got married.

I was disappointed for a minute when I finally heard it. Not because it wasn’t good, but because they went from this fun-loving easy-to-listen blast of fun, … Continue reading

Of Montreal – Fugitive Air

Of Montreal – Fugitive Air

Is it just me, or is full frontal male nudity a new thing for music videos? Don’t worry, it’s just a quick flash. Much less than you see in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, or maybe Game of Thrones or Spartacus. I guess it’s to be expected of highly sexual, beyond-strange lead singer Kevin Barnes, a guy who … Continue reading
