    Thank you for the all the positive feedback I’ve received in the past week regarding my Top 100 Albums of 2015 list. Whether by e-mail, Facebook, comments and texts, you sure know how to make a guy feel like his website has more than ten readers! Even though I made mention of at the beginning of the post you might have glanced over my warning: no soundtracks […]

Frankly, I don’t have that kind of time this year, so I’m only going to describe the ones I think warrant further exploration. I hope you appreciate the effort. I could be out on the town getting loaded and having a […]

    So you decided to celebrate this new (is it seven or eight years old now?)Record Store Day. Why!? Is it because you reallyneed that new Tame Impala record? Or a thirtieth re-issue of The Doors “Weird Scenes Inside The Gold Mine”? Is the hole in your life so vast that only each of the “limited edition” vinyl releases this year will fill it? Trust […]
