Danger Mouse + Jack White | When In Rome

3 Comments 22 | February | 2011

The saying goes, “when one door closes, another opens.”  In the case of Jack White, a GIANT door recently closed when he confirmed that The White Stripes are calling it quits. So, by the “Conservation of Door” principle stated above (aka, Newton’s 4th Law), Jack should be introducing a few new projects, right?

Sure enough, he continues to dabble in just about every sector of the music industry, and most recently his talents have collided with super-producer Brian Burton (aka, Danger Mouse). Continue Reading

Grammys Go Over Easy | Not Eggxactly

2 Comments 17 | February | 2011

Once again the Grammys has come and gone, placing its gold star of excellence on a select few artists, duos, groups, casts of TV shows, or shemale solo artists performing a live cover of a remix composed by a recipient of the lifetime achievement award in the category of best jazz ensemble west of the Nile.

As usual, the telecast was a lengthy ordeal, not including the two hours of red carpet coverage leading up to the actual awards ceremony.  Unsurprisingly, in the roughly six hours of coverage, cameras captured some classic D-List material from A-list celebrities, starting at… Continue Reading

@Work | Outlook Not So Good

No Comments 15 | February | 2011

I’ve been in the workforce long enough to have seen some seriously wacky emails drop into my inbox.  Whether they are in the name of actual work or a 110% waste of company time doesn’t really matter, they all end in me squinting at the screen while scratching my head, pondering the impetus for such retardedism*.

PS22 Choir | The Kids Are Alright

Music and art programs have long been fighting for their lives in schools.  Ever-threatening funding cuts leave these supposedly superfluous curricula playing 5th chair to math, sciences, English and “other shit like spelling*.”

*As far as I can tell spelling is no longer a required skill in 93% of global industry.  Besides, texting has completely undermined teacher efforts and it is obvious that phonetics and brevity have carried the day. U kno what I mn? LOL. =P Continue Reading

Resolute 2011 | The Bucket List

3 Comments 08 | February | 2011

Just because the new year launched over one month ago, doesn’t mean that I can’t make more resolutions.  The long and short of resolutions  is that they can be long-term, short-term, or terminal from the get-go.  Additionally I’ve decided they can be silly….and fictional.  Hence I’ve begun compiling a bucket list for myself.  While there is a degree of truth to all most some very few of these, I don’t expect to achieve them all in 2011….ore even before my time is up.  Might as well shoot for the moon and see where the chips fall, right.  I suppose #0 should be to not mix metaphors.  Here we go… Continue Reading

Elliott Smith | An Introduction

2 Comments 04 | February | 2011

The man I’m about to introduce needs no introduction…Elliott Smith.  My ironic contradiction plays on the title of Smith’s newest release and is a monumental fake out for those who would wish for a real introduction to the genius behind this compilation of hits.  Plagued in life by depression and addiction, Smith famously, or infamously, took his own life* in October of 2003.
