Scaramouche, Scaramouche, Will You Do The TRS-80?

This is incredibly cool, even if you’re not a geek. If you are, you’ll probably miss half the song trying to identify all the equipment involved (the video maker provided the parts list at the video’s YouTube page) (via The Chorister)

Do Ya, Do Ya Want My Kotter?

Was there ever a better live music show on television than Bert Sugarman’s The Midnight Special? I think not. It’s too bad that NBC decided to axe the show just because Dick Ebersol wanted to clear the way for the clearly inferior Saturday Night Live. Ebersol dipped into the music genre again with Friday Night […]

Blog Break, Baseball, and the Blues

I’m taking a day or so off from the blogging grind (as you probably noticed). I spent the lat two evenings at the ballpark watching my new favorite baseball team, the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, take the first two games of the Atlantic League divisional playoff series from the Long Island Ducks. Let me tell […]

Are you in the mood for a little music this morning? I know I am. It’s been a long week and I could use a little bit of cutting loose. Let’s unwind with a couple of my favorites from the 70s, why don’t we?

What happens when you take The Dark Crystal, Star Wars, The Phantom Zone from Superman II, the post-apocalyptic world from Thundarr the Barbarian, and Crow T Robot’s older bartender brother, put them all in a blender, then spill them out over an 80′s dance pop number? You get this. Answers to questions I know you […]

Romeo and Juliet and Stirrup Pants and High Heels

Romeo and Juliet and Stirrup Pants and High Heels

“Romeo and Juliet” is, for my money, Dire Strait’s best song and easily its worst video. Yes, I’m including the odd video for “Walk of Life” that, for some reason not indicated by the song itself, included baseball blooper clips. Seriously. If you can figure out how what’s happening in the video relates to the […]

If you want to get a bunch of rock and roll fans into a knock-down, drag-out argument, just ask them who the greatest drummer who ever lived was. A line will be drawn between the John Bonham fans and the Neal Peart fans with a few folks staking out positions around Keith Moon and a […]

How About A Wednesday Morning Acoustic Rock-Out

How About A Wednesday Morning Acoustic Rock-Out

I’m in the mood for some music to get the blood pumping this morning. You? This is one of the best acoustic versions of a guitar rock song I’ve ever heard. It’s from a live convert the group did in England in, I believe, 1995. If you’re up for a challenge, hit the pause button […]

I’m headed out to a ballgame and won’t be back until early evening. As they don’t have free wi-fi at the park, there won’t be any blogging (I know. Awwwwwwwww). But I’ll leave you with one of the greatest dance songs ever recorded. And it’s live.

Let’s Take a Mid-Afternoon Music Break

It’s kind of a bleary, dreary day here and talking about politics all the time isn’t my idea of a lot of fun, so how about I break up the gloomy, fishy day with a little music? This is Stevie Ray Vaughan performing “Riviera Paradise” live. It’s not what you’d normally expect from SRV, but […]
