2 sided politics

the democrats were told a year ago there was hacking going on. on one hand i'd love to come out and AH HA YOU KNEW but being in the security industry - yea - it happens and you rely on a lot around you to keep it safe. there's a fine line between secure and pain in the arse, and that varies from business to business depending on how secure they wish to be. spearfishing - however - is a tough one. setup a new domain or buy a 10 year old dormant one and setup shop. target some people by their e-mails and suggested level of security and send the messages designed to do no more than have them clic...

Renegade Nation?

Renegade Nation?
In the culinary world I believe it’s called a “fusion” when you merge 2 ideas into 1. I’m sure in many areas it’s called a lot of things but when not rocking I’m usually feeding my food habit so this is a handy reference to me. J Not long ago the twisted one came to me and said that reverb nation was expanding their reach and working more to help not only artists, but promoters like us. After a few there was nothing to lose, all to gain, and we’re in. we’ll be working on tweaking our page you can find here on Reverb. We will be adding more for local shows in Long Island and If all is going wel...

i'm tired. sick and tired of love. i've had my fill of love. from below and above....tired. well for now i'm just tired of impersonating madeline kahn but for the most part, i'm tired of site updates. i think the biggest changes for most coming will be facebook commentary on the articles and cleaning up the look and feel. for us, it's the first MAJOR step i've taken to follow SEO guides and working to improve the site rankings themselves. so it's been a busy weekend. we've been using disqus for the longest time and in looking at our traffic, we get much more coming from facebook...

icepicks for july

icepicks for july
from reviews to simply playing these guys week in and week out (and still never getting tired of ANYTHING to this point), shamans harvest  has gone from someone who got my attention, like many bands, a few years ago but in their release running around the internet now, Smokin Hearts & Broken Guns, they're certainly taking their game to the next level. if you want to hear more, they're easy enough to find on the web, but every thurs i'm almost bound to play something from their intro hit "dragonfly" to their cover "dirty diana" but for now, you'll get to jam out to some In Chains. http...

Redline Drive - Friction; Deja Vu for the Very First Time

Redline Drive - Friction; Deja Vu for the Very First Time
When you head to a Stryper show, you already know you’re in for a touch of retro. By touch, I mean “welcome to 1980-something for a few hours, we hope you enjoy your stay.” I expected to go “holy hell I heard this back in….” and then conveniently choose to NOT remember anything else out of respect for my ongoing years. What I wasn’t expecting was for the opening act, Dallas’ own Redline Drive , to steal the show. Don’t get me wrong – Stryper was as good as ever and Sweets vocals still going strong. We’ll cover that review in another write up – but for this, all I can say is after just a few so...

let's go ahead and get the local out of the way real quick in that yes, i'm coming back to dallas for back to back picks. dark avenue has been in the dallas scene for quite some time, and yes, still alive and well musically as well as on the stage. i've caught these guys at curtain club cd release parties, austin sxsw and most recently at gas monkey bar and grill and each and every time the power is there and the good times roll. and fresh off the press- dark avenue - maybe tomorrow.   i ran into heaven below years ago while surfing and found their hit "when daylight dies" and have spoken...

tomorrows classics, today - this generation is screwed

tomorrows classics, today - this generation is screwed
classic rock, if you're old enough, is late 60s, early 70s.  led zepplin. rolling stones. the guess who and american woman. who can miss the intro of that song? we even went through a disco phase and rock held on tight. face it - ever see a "classic disco" station? please. even the late 70s and into the 80s rock just went, for lack of a better word, corporate. CORP ROCK SUCKS!!! but looking back it all was but that rock is considered "classic" today. van halen, night ranger, bon jovi, ac/dc, KISS and many more who while some may have roots in the 70s to be sure, their "rock" bled into the...
