"The Music Man", 1962 - "Rock Island"

"YOU GOTTA KNOW THE TERRITORY" "LOOK! WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK!" What up yo. I used to watch this one with my Mom. I had forgotten the music, why I liked it, then I watched a few days ago...and watching the opening number "Rock Island" (they did a great job touching this BluRay up. Video & Sound) hurled me backwards in time to 1981, being a kid, sitting with Mom and watching this...memories I always appreciate. The opening number to me is gasoline. High octane. Listening to them perform this...watching them perform this...me […]

Phillip Seymour Hoffman By Cameron Crowe

This is from the almighty Cameron Crowes website, "The Uncool" on Phillip Seymour Hoffmans performance of the midnight phone call scene in his autobiographical film "Almost Famous". PSH "My original take on this scene was a loud, late night pronouncement from Lester Bangs. A call to arms. In Phil’s hands it became something different. A scene about quiet truths shared between two guys, both at the crossroads, both hurting, and both up too late. It became the soul of the movie. In between takes, Hoffman spoke to no one. He listened only to his headset, only to the words of […]

The Bogmen's "Suddenly" | Video

These dudes are from Huntington, my home town in Strong Island. A few things... First off, this song reminds me of the 90s which, as I get older and look back, were amazing. I had a complete ball. The song is about a man calling his ex-girlfriend on the phone, a woman named Darlese, for the 100th time. Darlese has been avoiding him, not taking his calls since he has been out of work and every time the storyteller, Freddie, calls... Darlese's roommate answers the phone saying she isn't home and she will leave a message. The story begins with […]

What up yo. videos below. 1st one is of my boys performing: SPIN SPIN!!! SPIN THE BLACK CIRCLE!! during the "Self Pollution Radio" live FM radio broadcast on January 8, 1995.

The Killers "Mr. Brightside", 2004 | Music Video

This song is excellence of the highest order. The debut album from these Las Vegas, Nevada natives... 2004's "Hot Fuss" "Hot Fuss" is that rare gem of an album you can listen to ...if you dig on this music that is...from beginning to end and start it right back up again. Of course I'm bias because I'm a fan...but I believe it to be true! Not much more to say here...except... " Now I'm falling asleep, and she's calling a cab While he's having a smoke, and she's taking a drag Now they're going to bed, and my stomach is […]

Billy Joel "Goodnight Saigon" - Live, 1983 | Video

"And The Night, Seemed To Last As Long As Six Weeks..." We met as soul-mates...on Parris Island We left as inmates...from an asylum And we were sharp... As sharp as knives... And we were so gung ho to lay down our lives We came in spastic...like tame-less horses We left in plastic...as numbered corpses And we learned fast... To travel light... Our arms were heavy but our bellies were tight We had no home-front...we had no soft soap They sent us Playboy...they gave us Bob Hope We dug in deep... And shot on sight... And prayed to Jesus Christ with […]
