Run DMC & Aerosmith's Walk This Way music video.
In my opinion, this announced the arrival of rap to the mainstream music scene in the 80's.
Run DMC & Aerosmith's Walk This Way music video.
Van Halen put out the great video for Hot For Teacher in 1984, and it was a grand success. The money came pouring in, and the band imploded. Well, Dave did.
Eddie Vedder sings Bob Dylan's truth at Madison Square Garden in October of 1992.
A must see.
Kurt Cobain ascended the golden ladder, a ladder most will never glimpse.
He he climbed to the very top...and saw a curtain, behind which he always thought would be his salvation.
He reached over the ladder and peaked behind...
And for whatever reason...
After years of imaging the solace he might find....
Whatever Kurt saw back there...
He didn’t want to take another step after that...
He just wanted off the ladder by any means necessary.
It's the rare music video that can sustain it's charm for 30 years.
And I find it's usually the simplest ones that stay with you.
This is easily one of them
20 years ago I watched the Pearl Jam MTV Unplugged performance for the first time. Over the course of that 60 mins, Pearl Jam became
and still is
my favorite band.

EXPLORE THE SPACE What up yo. First, this is one of the best sketches SNL ever pulled off in my opinion. Second, a few things happen here...a chain reaction begins 3 mins in which catapults this skit instantly into classic SNL Skit status. It begins when Farrell kicks the mic stand over. If you watch closely you'll see... Horatio Sanz responding by backing up, stumbling, falling down and nearly taking down the entire drumset. It has begun. Then Chris Kattan, looking incredible with that pornstar mustache, aggressively grabs Farrell by the shirt and yells "Don't blow this for us Gene!!" […]
I had to add the lyrics to this song below for my legions of imaginary fans to soak up. This song in its subtle lyrical genius rocked my face off. I use to randomly pick out one line at a time and throw it up on my Facebook page, and without fail, people would read it and comment something to the effect of... "Wow" Or "Beautiful" Or "Hey Wes, who wrote this" Or "I'm sorry I tried to steal your "Return Of The Jedi" Speeder Bike toy when we were kids..." Because the song is hauntingly, beautiful and perfection. I […]
What up yo. I was out of work 5 years back. Found a blog by a girl from New York City. She was from the Midwest, had a drug problem and came here to Metropolis to be in Fashion School and to model. Damn it, I wish I could remember then name of her blog. She would write these long articles about missing this guy, missing that guy, going online to chat rooms and meeting guys who always ended up exposing themselves to her. It was a good read. Anyway, She listened to kick ass music. I discovered "The XX" […]
I could go off here for a while about the beauty of Anton's eye, how he paints with images, how the black and white photography in this film shot by cinematographer Martin Ruhe is gorgeous and the entire film looked like silk to me, but I'm sitting in a parking lot banging this out on my iPad and I need to get back home. But listen. I didn't know much about Joy Division before watching this film. Then as it progressed, and because I have this crush on all things Great Britain (I'm going home to my British SwePea), I […]

Here's a little clip from "Pearl Jam 20", the documentary film from Cameron Crowe.
The "Mama-Son" tape refers to the instrumental containing versions of what would become "Once" "Alive" & "Footsteps". Eddie Vedder received the tape from his friend, former Chili Peppers drummer and future short-term PJ drummer (Yield) back in 1990.
Grease the film musical starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was a blockbuster in the theaters in 1978, and is simply iconic 40 years later. A feat very few films an claim.
"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 […]

"MCG...You Got Something To Say To This Prick?!?!"
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 […]

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 […]

"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 […]
Love this song. All about the Sting and Bono segments. "Where the only water flowing there ... Is the bitter sting of tears."
