One Night In Portland

I’m going on record (ha ha) with an unpopular musical opinion, and I don’t really care who knows it. Back in early 1985 two singers released their own versions of the same song. I was thirteen years old at the time, right in the target demographic for Top-40 “Z” stations like Z-100 here in Portland. …

Filter – The Sun Comes Out Tonight

I decided not to write anything about the new Daft Punk record here because, wow, who didn’t have something to say about it?

They Grew On Me

As I listen to Midnight Oil’s Redneck Wonderland album through (chosen to be the background music while I work on a software upgrade… yes, at 9:30pm…) I realize that back when I first picked up the CD, I didn’t actually like it very much. I thought it was too rough, too hard, too different from …
