Stuff that works – Christmas edition

Ok. I’ll admit it. I’m a bit of a Scrooge about Christmas music.  I think it’s because people start playing it in November these days and I just get sick of it.  It’s probably more than that, because I don’t really remember ever liking any Christmas songs.  Dolly’s Hard Candy Christmas is good; I’ve always…

Exciting new additions

Well the Droid has taken hold in our house.  It’s really the coolest thing since sliced bread.  Or I think it is.  My husband won’t let go of it long enough for me to really find out.  I do hear it making funny noises, quoting Family Guy pretty frequently and him giggling uncontrollably, so it…

Political correctness?

Why do people brag about being “politically incorrect”?  I heard it this morning in a bluegrass song.  Now I know that typically country and bluegrass skew to a certain demographic and a bluegrass collaboration with Travis Tritt, even more so, but this lyric struck me: I’m a little rough around the edges I didn’t come…

Week of Bonnaroo and more

We made it to another Bonnaroo last weekend.  I’d bet I’m still recovering!  A coworker asked me what artists I saw and I had a hard time remembering them all.  This is not due to any extreme alcohol consumption,  more because of the sheer number of acts we saw in such a short time.  I’ve…

Friends on TV

I usually take Saturday mornings to learn a little about what’s going on in popular music, or at least what’s popular on the video front.  I don’t ever watch the WHOLE thing, but as I scan the news channels, I do linger on vh1’s Top 20 Countdown to catch a few videos here and there….

New music in the house

Today we picked up B’s new mandolin from Pick n Grin where it was being re-strung and set up. I bought from my friend Benny (thanks, Benny!) as a gift for B, I had wanted to get him one as a wedding gift but couldn’t so. I got it nearly in time to be an…

There’s music in my memories…

He told me something very wonderful.  I cried.  I knew at that moment, it would be one of the happiest moments of my life.  And then I noticed the song on the radio.  Now, I love Rod Stewart’s Maggie May as much as the next person, but I can honestly say, when I realized it…

Billy Joe Shaver!

I’m really looking forward to seeing Billy Joe Shaver tonight at the Shed at Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson.  We went to see Todd Snider there earlier in the year and I really really like the venue.  Its completely covered, so if it does rain, we’re still safe and dry!  The sound was great when we saw…

Days Aren’t Long Enough

I’ve been listening to the new Steve Earle CD, Washington Square Serenade, all weekend.  I’m digging it, if for no other reason that its a classic Steve Earle sounding album.  I was particularly drawn to this song.  I’d guess its for obvious reasons.   Day’s Aren’t Long Enough Another year has come and gone Another circle ‘round the sun…

Reservations

How can I convince you it’s me I don’t like When I’ve always been distant and I’ve always told lies for love I’m bound by these choices so hard to make I’m bound by the feeling so easy to fake None of this is real enough to take me from you Oh I’ve got reservations…
