wrapping up 2016 - best of icepicks and a glance at 2017
we don't have an official "Renegade Radio" award ceremony and that's one thing we're looking at for this coming year but i'll get to that later. for now i'd just like to go over my best of "best of" so to speak and just call out the ones who i keep going back to time and time through the year. until the last, these are in no specific order. the last of course will be my "best of 2016" but again - i get ahead of myself. :) first up is decembers winner, hell or highwater . my initial high has leveled off some and perhaps come back to earth a touch overall, but there are simply some bad ass songs...

icepicks december, hell or highwater

icepicks december, hell or highwater
i wish you were here for days like these but you saw all the world gave you to see somtimes life just slips away so shed a tear for the dead remember the legacy they left for the time we have left  remember the life and not the death i had a lot already written and so close to saying everything i had to say about the band. then this song came on, "remember the life and not the death" and given how this year has taken a toll on our own musical heros and our own personal losses that can never be replaced, everything about this song just made me fall in love with music and my own memories al...

An Evening with Patrick Kennison

An Evening with Patrick Kennison
Most of us go through high school without a clear path ahead but with any luck, some questions answered about what we’d like to do with our time and life. Then again, some people just know early on and have never looked back. “My first band was in middle school” started out Patrick Kennison , front man and creative force behind rock band Heaven Below . “we played half covers, half originals, won several battles and I even won some guitar competitions.” This could well have been cemented in high school by an errant guidance counselor. “By the time I got into high school, I knew what I wanted to...

Why Your Band Gets Looked Over

Why Your Band Gets Looked Over
We are into our 2nd run working with Reverb Nation  in finding new artists to play and promote. Round 1 brought out some MAJOR scored in violet janine , grimmjack , moxie and the influence , and many many more and so much has been added to our rotation. But finding these bands was tough. REAL tough. You've got a lot of crap to get through to find the good stuff and along the way you start to notice why you gloss over some and don't even listen to others and in the end, start to understand in depth as to why you will listen to a song again vs. hope to GOD you can forget that last bands nam...

Who Wants to be KING???

:)
:)
:)
we left the last round of vikings with this cry from ragnar who was both getting through having his brother whip his *** and detoxing from his drug induced loss in paris. to be fair, it was rolos time but ragnar was not ragnar and everyone knew it. enter the new season. i think my only complaint is the "overmakeup" on floki and ragnar that made them look like they were wearing too much makeup, not gotten older. there, that's said. from here i'll talk about the show so if you've not seen it yet, stop if you want. last warning. you'd think my biggest fantasy would come true where lagertha finall...

the walking dead - season whatever

one of the things i pondered so carefully when we left last season in the cliffhanger we did was just how many "real life" people would die before they ever knew who negan killed. i had it all figured out. x amount of population x amount of is a % of fans of the show x amount of people die yearly x amount of fans that would likely die... you get the picture. but the number i came up with was pretty impressive. the "cliffhanger" resolution maybe wasn't exactly what they were looking for as i can see now that it really did 2 things. alienated many fans who thought it was *too* violent set a tone...

Tyketto - Reach

Tyketto - Reach
Timing is everything. As cliché as that sounds, it’s true. Looking back on the 80s it’s harder to describe the rise and eventual fall of hair bands and the “copycat” syndrome. Almost any successful band had 2 things happen; the “brand” made a ton of money and the industry went into overdrive to do it again with another band. You like Night Ranger, we’re going to give you more Night Ranger, so to speak. But as a famous author once wrote – Nothing gold can stay. It was 1987 and in many ways, 80s music was at its climax and bands were being pushed out as quickly as they could be found. Howev...

why i watch movies, sports and entertaining things

the real world can suck at times. these days for sure. the world seems hellbent on destroying itself and at times, it's hard to find fault in that idea. this last election took a huge toll on us all as a society and culture and regardless of who won, a good 1/2 the people who are emotionally tied to the results, lost. that's a lot of losing to get over. not happening very gracefully either. now i could google some of my own examples of the world gone mad but we all have our own examples. rioting since the left lost the election and showing them obama bumper stickers of "we won, get over it" do...
