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.....

so, you think you want a dog?

With all the changes I’ve been going through since my ICU visit last October, I do feel like I’m taking control of my life again. Getting up to get things done, cleaning up around the house on a regular basis, and all the things I never cared about or took the time to under my previous lifestyle. Maybe one day I’ll get into my previous lifestyle, but for now let’s just say it was pretty isolationistic (is that a word? Word didn’t mark it so it must be) and keeping to myself. I can’t honestly say that all that is changing but I have gotten to the point where I feel I need a dog around the house...

berg news, june 16 1999 (psyche)

nothing like some santana to get started on your day, is there? ok, we've made it to tuesday and nothing major has broken on the new site. the chatroom was interesting and to all those who did chat last wednesday, the blank TOS you signed has come through and I will be telling you each what you've agreed to as the rest of the year unfolds. until then, we do have a new chat and a mobile version also. you can get to either here on the site, or hit the droid on top (it *is* the droid you are looking for!) on a droid device and hit our updated app complete with a fresh link to the new chat. that d...

god damn it - this is fun!

I don’t know what to say. This is fun again. I’m jamming my ass off to some old Kenny loggins putting the final touches on this our new home and ya know what. I’m air drummin. I’m singing with my headphones on. I’m having fun again. There’s a million reasons I could get into as to why this is so cool for me but it all goes back to well WELL over a year ago. Hell in some ways it goes back close to 20 years ago. But all I can and will say is I’m feeling MUCH better these days. Some are still more challenging than others but I do as my good friend joe dirt once told me, keep on keeping on. Who kn...

sonoffabichberg, again???

Another year, another website. Or so it would seem. The last one we had never really took off but never to let failure stop me (donuts yes, failure no, unless it’s failure to stop eating donuts) I took what I learned and the team here regrouped, huddled up, took on different roles and responsibilities and here we are. We’ve put together yet another website but this one is about 90% html 5 compliant and should work 100% on phones, if not a big wonky on a few things. Sorry. The work that goes into trying to make a site like this isn’t as easy as it looks. Unless it looks like a total bitch, then...

Deaf Havana - Old Souls

Deaf Havana - Old Souls
In another rare move, Old Souls, the bands 1st official US release, has simply exceeded my lofty expectations and given me an anchor in a sea of lost music searching for a home. I honestly have no idea what that reference really means, but it sounds cool so I’ll keep it.   I would love to say that I could pick out a favorite, but that would imply that there are “less favorite” songs on this release. That’s simply not the case as Old Souls is one rocking hit after another, never falling into a rut or making me feel like I heard the songs before. I can say some songs will hit home in ways y...

where music goes to play

So, it was with that hope, that some of the lounge owners, would tell you what to play, when to play it, and to take every single request no matter what, and NEVER play what they don't tell you..   Yeah. That worked out pretty well for me.    You see, I've always had one rule that I've stood by - Don't play music that sucks. Don't do the same s*%t that every other DJ does and pimp Metallica, just because they (At one point and time) were all OVER the f*%#ing place ("Mandatory Metallica", anybody?). Don't play Nickelback because that's what's "hot"..   Do I think either of t...
