I always try to think of something interesting to day here. Usually I just resort to a bunch of crazy nonsense. That’s only interesting to me though. So today, I want to present to you the new me. The me who cares about you and your feelings. Here goes… Hey everybody, I hope you are enjoying my reviews as of late. This latest batch should be a fun bit of reviews. I go from indie releases, to more mainstream fare. I understand the need to put music out there that is less known, but to be honest, it is hard for me to differentiate between the two. Good music is good music, no matter how many copies are pressed. If that offends you, well then I’m sorry. (Wow, that did not go well, here’s a palate cleanser… gabba goop goop trappy ly ly!)

Hey there everybody! Ah December! That month of months! All the holiday cheer and joy, it’s enough to make you just jump in the air and scream! But, we don’t do that, do we? We’re just too scared. Scared little babies. Waah Waah! Cry all you want people, it’ll do no good. Stop screaming though…STOP IT! C’mon, we’re in public, people will stare. Oh noooo! You got me, I’m no better than you are. OK, can we make up? I’m sorry. Here, here’s some cool records for you to check out. Will that make things better? Gee, I sure hope so!

Hey everybody! Halloween is just around the corner. This time of year brings to mind one thing and one thing only. PUMPKINS! Nobody cares about pumpkins any other time of the year. I mean, what’s up with that? They are like orange and junk, you can totally cut out awesome faces from them, and cook up the seeds for a flavorless treat! Who can ask for more? So this year, carve out a space for a boom box in your pumpkin, pop in one of these CD’s and you’ll have a singing pumpkin! Won’t that be cool??

Hey everybody! I am just cooking with these reviews lately! It’s insane! or is it just inane? I guess we’ll never know for sure! But one fact remains, and that is that if music be the food of love, then play on! Because love is VERY hungry right now, and it needs to gorge on a huge heaping platter of music, deep fried in a harmonic batter, drizzled with melody, double-dipped in a chorus of voices, served hot and fresh. Dig in!
