it's christmas eve and it's snowing

repost from 2009 but wanting to save the content.   how about that? the traditional snow on christmas here in dallas, texas. we do get snow a few times a year, but rarely when it's supposed to and rarely does it last more than a few hours. but today, i can look out my office window and see the snow slowly cover up the grass. i started to remember the last time it snowed on christmas and my mind drifted way back to my college years in oklahoma. i don't remember anything specific but i do remember it would be much more likely to do it there than anywhere else i've lived. that being austin a...

a pop tart moment

happen? I've had several "pop tart" moments since the original one and now I've just come to appreciate them for what they are; a coincidence of epic proportions that you can't plan because the random nature of them is what makes them so great.   let me back up and explain how first the term got coined and then the moments I've had since then I'd call a "pop tart" moment.   it was around 1990 and I was living in arlington, tx with a friend. I had just lost my job I moved to Dallas for and he was letting me crash in his back bedroom for $170 a month, all bills paid. I had my air mattr...

analysis of a dream

we've all had dreams that flat woke us up in a cold sweat. or maybe it's only me and I should seek help. however, over time I've come to find my dreams usually center around a few things. I'm in familiar territory, but it's all different and changes every time I look around. if I go back to where I was, or thought I was, it's different.   maybe I went from an elaborate hotel lobby on my way to find some friends I know I'm just right on their footsteps. I turn around and go back but suddenly I'm in a crowded shopping mall. I push forward (usually happens when you go to sleep, this "dreamin...

the bright - objects of my affection

coming off a rare "10" rating from their last cd, "in lucid dreams", the bright is back with "objects of my affection", a release that to a point completes the teaser cd "Diamonds in the Snow" which contained 4 early tracks (charmed, deep fall, how i feel and save the night) and then ever so much more.   Comprised of a group of talented musicians, The Bright* is: Julie Lange (vocals), Miguel Fair (bass), Robert Yahne (drums), Kell Curtis (guitar),Taylor Tatsch (guitar/backing vocals), Eric Jenkins (keys/producer) (stolen directly from their website. - Check it out - The Brights Website). ...

the death of FM

All through history new technology has made old technology obsolete. With music, we started off with reel to reel tapes and moved to 8-tracks. I’m not sure how 8 tracks ever got out the door however. i never had one that didn't need a piece of paper shoved in the side of the tape to player (if you don't understand that you're too young, Google it) and i never understood how you can be jamming to some Boston, for example, and go from belting out MORE THAN A FEELING and having it wind down, change tracks, and pick back up again. it was such a momentum killer.   Cassettes came along next and...

The New Marvel Universe

The New Marvel Universe
Attention comic readers! It's completely possible that the combination of the Marvel comic realities could be a disaster.  Using my favorite childhood comic Spider-Man as an example, he had at least four seperate comics running in the 90's.  Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man and a weekly comic strip... and none of those effected the other. As of now... there will be one Spider-Man in the larger MCU...  and that's better, for now. Actions will have larger consequences that will ripple and effect other characters.  In addition, there are new faces to the ...

The State Of The Musician's Address

The State Of The Musician's Address
Welcome! This is the state of the musician address, by a musician for the music fans.  We have a lot to speak about on this day. The world has changed for us, those that have picked up an instrument or sang in front of a crowd in the last 20 years or so. It is now really hard to sell music, venues have embraced the pay to play system, and nobody knows who is supposed to market the performer now.  The listener does not, in general, want to purchase an album anymore. Ten songs for 10 dollars is too expensive to take a cheap gamble. All that time in a recording studio comes out of a mus...

Brobusters vs. Galbusters

Brobusters vs. Galbusters
Here are the facts.  Ghostbusters, the 1984 movie about the destruction of New York City by a giant marshmallow, and a woman demon dressed in bubblewrap, and an obvious 1980's supermodel haircut is getting remade.  Gone will be Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, Winston Zedmore, and Egon Spengler...and these characters are so big, that they need to be replaced with 4 women, and an unnamed amount of males. A few months ago Sony green-lit an all female reboot of the GB universe, directed by Bridesmaids director, Paul Feig.  It does have the blessing of both Dan Ackroyd, and Ivan Reitman.....
