This is my friend/ex-bandmate, Joe.

He has started a music blog.

The blog deals with indie bands around the southeast. Namely Nashville.

It’s full of useful information about bands you haven’t heard of yet, but should.

And sometimes he even gives you free mp3s! Bonus!

Joe is a super-talented musician currently playing with
a band called Stories That Live.

The new blog is an offshoot of his entertaining radio show
aptly named Indie Ghetto.

You can listen to this weeks show by clicking here.

Or you can listen live every Thursday from 2-4 by clicking here.

Joe is also part owner of a recording studio/producion company on
Nashville’s Music Row called LakeFever Productions.

This dude has got it going on.

I miss Joe. I haven’t seen him in many years.

We shall be making a trip to Nashville soon.


Detroit Octane is back!

And this time around they’re doing a campaign music video for Hillary Clinton.

This one isn’t near as funny as Barak Obama-sistible,
but it’s worth it for the very last frame.

I seriously laughed out loud.


Ernest Hemingway once wrote, “The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.” I agree with the second part.

Again, I didn’t watch any movies this week.

I started two, but never finished them.

But, here are two movie coming out soon that I think look good.

And maybe you haven’t heard of them yet.


The Acorn is a band I happened upon, and I think you should check them out.

Their newest release, Glory Hope Mountain, is excellent.

Check out their myspace, and their official site.

This is my favorite song of theirs:



And here’s why:

You guys wanna stick around for an oven mitt?

Death at a Funeral

When all was said and done, I liked this movie. It wasn’t great, but it was good. The first half was pretty slow and not all that funny, but once some of the craziness started happening at the funeral, it became quite a bit more enjoyable. There are a lot of better movies out there, but I wouldn’t say this was a waste of time. It’s a British comedy… so there’s that. If you like that sort of thing (and I usually do), it’s probably worth a viewing.


You should listen to this guy.

And you should like him.

His name is Justin Vernon, but he goes by the name Bon Iver.

His debut album is called For Emma, Forever Ago, and it is really good.

Skinny Love and Flume are both super songs.

Check out his myspace and virb.
