I just went outside to Monument Square just to check and see if this whole storm thing is as bad as it seems from my 5th floor window at One City Center. Yep. It is. Man alive I hate March.
Today is no ordinary day. As far as I'm concerned it's a holiday - and a big one at that. And I got the video footage to prove it. More on that in a second.
Here we are five days out from the Oscars. I especially appreciated the extra love that was given to music in film. Though, truth be told, "Chicago" ain't my cup of tea. High-five to Babs, however, for banging out a terrific "The Way We Were." Also, I love Adele, but "Skyfall" ain't my thing either.
Happy Valentine's Day, music fans! For the sheer fun of it, I have gathered some of my favorite versions of the classic tune "My Funny Valentine."
We can get through this. Whether we get 6 inches or 6 feet, in a few days it will all be over. Sure, some of us will lose power, some of us will strain our backs shoveling, some of us will slip and fall. I'll surely do all three. But I'll do it with a smile on my face and one of several songs in my heart.
First I popped down to Bull Moose Music and perused new releases and such. That's where I saw my first one. It looked a little something like this:
Portland purveyors of multi-layered psychedelic/experimental musical musings Jaw Gems have made one heck of a cool video for the song "Star Visor".
It's no secret that David Bowie is my favorite musician in the whole wide world. But what was secret was that he's been working on a NEW ALBUM for the past two years! It will be his first studio album since 2003's "Reality."
I'm gonna get right to it. The question of "What was my favorite album of 2012" was one I was able to answer without hesitation or doubt in about two seconds flat.
