A Little Saturday Afternoon Workout

| August 11, 2012 | Reply

David Byrne is a maniac. There’s no other way to explain why he’d put himself and his entire band through a high-impact cardio routine during a seven minute live performance of “Life During Wartime”. But on the off-chance you successfully Jog Along with David, try a different challenge. Strap on a bass guitar and do […]

It's Time for a Music Break. Live Rush with a Killer Introduction

I did not think I could admire the members of Rush any more than I did before I watched this video, but I was wrong. Oh, how I was wrong. Not only is this perhaps the best introduction to a song I have ever seen, but it’s also a killer live performance of one of […]

The Delivery Presents – MSM Muddles and Music with Mark

| April 23, 2012 | Reply

The big lie most often told by the MSM is that they know better than you what is and is not news. Every day, though, you can find an example of just how untrue that assertion really is. I kick off Episode 143 with a tale of funny Obamacare math, a newspaper article that got […]

For Episode 131, I turned to one of the smartest and coolest people I know — Ben Domenech of the Coffee and Markets podcast, among other places — to join me for the entire show. I won’t even begin to describe everything you’ll get in the whole hour, but I’ll give you two little tidbits. […]

Share my Christmas Tradition: Handel's Messiah on Christmas Night

| December 25, 2011 | 1 Reply

One of my personal Christmas traditions (and I have a few) involves a little quiet, a pair of headphones, and a superlative recording of Messiah by Georg Frederich Handel. I do not believe a greater work of exultation and worship has ever been written and Christmas would simply not be the same without it. I […]

I think this evening I’m going to post a couple videos, just to keep the Christmas spirit around for a few extra hours. There’s no need to rush into the end of the year, is there?

Step One: Open the door. Step Two: Get on the floor. Step Three: Everyb….wait. Do I really need to spell out the third step?     By the by, I used to have a pretty wicked crush on the short-haired blonde dancer in this video back in the way. Never did learn her name.

I admit, even though I love when people take “old” media and find new ways to present it with new technology, I’m torn on this story. The iPad 2 commercials that boast about how Apple’s tablet lets you “touch the stars” and “listen to a magazine” are cool and all, but Steve Jobs could probably […]

A Little Night Music to Take You Back: "Inchworm"

| June 27, 2011 | Reply

How about a video? Here’s “Inchworm”, an old Sesame Street classic. Just because. My Mom used to sing this song to me when I was young and, sometimes, I’d sing the counterpoint melody — the part with the math. I still have days and nights, even as a grizzled adult, when I want my Mom […]
