I just report the stories I find a link to on facebook.

Is this supposed to advertise the album for me to rush out and buy it? Either…WHY would that entice me? http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/07/stream-morrisseys-new-album-world-peace-is-none-of-your-business/

At first I asked “Why?” then I continued to listen and began to change my mind. I’ll have to dig deep to hear what they’re about before I decide.

As a casual fan of metal, the new Mastodon sounds OK. Don’t know if I’d buy it though? Everybody was so overjoyed when “Blood Mountain” was released. I can’t stand that album. I heard it once at James & Sherry’s place and knew I was more certain that I wouldn’t purchase that album!

Music video of a Paul McCartney cameo by Jonny Depp.

There’s Jack White stuff on the RIOB if you like.

Smashing Pumpkins exploded with the grunge scene in the early ’90s. I saw them on what was to be their final tour before going on hiatus. 2000 I believe at a “Summersault” 1 day festival, left probably half way through their set? I didn’t really know much about them at the time, but they were the headliner. I went to see Foo Fighters on that tour and A Perfect Circle promoting their first album. Now that I’ve been actually focused and listening to Smashing Pumpkins, I’d rate them as a B+. Not all great, but I like most of it.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“Complaining won’t solve anything. If you want something done your way, just do it yourself!”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
