millennials killed the radio star

millennials killed the radio star
the sad part is, most of them won't even get this reference. recently an older article came out where the writer was pumping his chest proclaiming that his generation killed the music industry. a lot of words came to mind but all them were after a healthy bout of laughter from the headline alone. after reading the first paragraph it was painfully obvious they were referring to the RIAA's business model that yes, is in fact 100% dead. but the millennials didn't have jack shit to do with that death. as soon as mp3's hit the public web it was game over. it was only a matter of time before file sh...

shit, 9 days into the year, changes already

and i gotta admit, i feel kinda "on the edge" when i can start my headline w/profanity.  :) changes so far are not major but they are in fact, changes. we dropped the old chatroom because as it was functional, we're after a little bit more than that in the coming months to this entire year. the most notable change to date is this chatroom bit. you see, we found chatwee that allows 3 social logins and we don't have to maintain a userbase OR make you create yet another online account. let's face it, the fun of that wore off 16,391 accounts ago, right? ALL HAIL SINGLE SIGN ON!!!! and there w...

gearing up for 2016 - yep. that's what we're doing

we've got some cool plans for 2016 and want to thank everyone, again, for sticking with us while we grow and continue to make listening to our music easier for you. we've got at least one person to add on board who is kinda family already, and we'll be revamping the Long Island scene soon so keep an eye out there. for our site, we'll have a new 24x7 cloud server by the start of the year, 1st week is our goal. how will you know? hopefully you won't tell other than the music has been updated.  :)  shows are dropping to 2 hours quite a bit as people are more focused on better music, not...

Harley, fence repairs, and $350

Harley, fence repairs, and $350
Funny how things work sometimes. This bit of odd humor that I can’t make a pop tart moment but however, the timing is still impeccable and not at all planned. There are funny parts to this, and there’s a few tear jerking moments. In the end, I just had to be glad it was over. Well almost. My gates still need to be fixed so they shut first. But I jump too far ahead. Many months ago I decided after 18 years it’s time to replace my falling off gutters and get the house repainted. Go through the motions, find the contractors, and ok the project. Normal enough and happens every day in this country....

Si vis pacem, para bellum

Si vis pacem, para bellum
Whenever you start quoting latin, you know you’re quoting some old OLD verbiage. This statement in fact is found in Book 3 of Latin author Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus tract De Re Militari, although similiarly found in earlier works such as Platos Nomoi. By now you are either totally confused as to where this is going, or you know at least a little latin and have a pretty good idea. Peace. We all want it. The liberals and progressives, the conservatives and religious people. Well, most religions. It’s something dreamed about since the dawn of time and likely even before Italians started so...

10 Tips for New Musicians Taking the Stage

10 Tips for New Musicians Taking the Stage










  1.  Practice.  A bunch.  Every practice is a rehearsal for your show.  You should all start at the same time, and end at the same time.   2.  Tune before your show.  There is no exception.  If you’re first tuning on stage, you are behind the game.  It's unprofessional, and you look amateur.   3.  Fuck ups happen.  No one is perfect, some worry about the show, while others worry about the music.  But you need both. Not just one.. if  you are a solo act, you need to pull double duty, if your drummer is a great showman, ...

newsreel on life support - call 911!!!

not really. we've been saving this space and at times one of us will dive in and post something clever. a show calendar perhaps so keep us from having to put it *in* the calendar? would WE do such things? no. don't go looking for it either it doesn't exist. even if you see it. all that said things are slowly coming back to normal for the website. i won't go into detail on how life gets in the way. i think we've beaten the crap out of that excuse (i know i have) and so forth, but we're still here. sean has been taking over control of the stream and show schedule and we're looking at ways to mov...

Being Rebellious - Again. Why?

Being Rebellious - Again. Why?
From CNN: Volunteer Rebels? Tennessee County votes Monday on raising Confederate flag. Story . it's a flag people. nothing more, nothing less. what it represents is what it represents *to you* and your feelings are not universal. no one has that "right". what we do have is tolerance and understanding of the complex views and attitudes that make up this country but somewhere along the way it became a crime. a symbol of hate that if anyone used it to support overall freedom, they were racist. period. extremes handed out by mob mentality that bear no meaning or even truth to the statement. just h...
