Each of us (except maybe Clay Aiken) at some point in our lives, comes across rock & roll. Of course, it's not always traditional rock & roll, maybe for you it was blues, punk, (or in Clay's case, Barry Manilow's "Copacabana"), but whatever it was, it was that first sweet moment of rebellion, when the music you're listening to makes all the sense in the world to you, but your parents and teachers listen to it with a look on their face not unlike they're listening to African throat warbling played both backwards and too loud. (Incidentally, if that's your type of music, I intend no... Read More
50 or Kanye: who will come out on top? That is the question that is surfacing the music world since both artists announced that they are dropping albums on the same day, September 11th.
What seems like a regular album release for two heavy hitters have become more of a clash to see who is the best MC by the most album sales. While Kanye just want his album to be a hip-hop classic among fans and critics alike, 50 Cent has made the whole release date more personal and vying for position in the rap game like a high school kid looking for popularity votes among his peers.
He gone... Read More
Before I give my reasons for downloading music illegally, I have to say that I'm kind of in limbo with this topic because I have downloaded music illegally, but I also know the effects of what happens to an artist when their music is downloaded without any royalties. So is downloading illegal music ethical? No,because when you are downloading music, it's taking away from the artist who spends countless hours recording the album and distributing it to their audience. Going back to the statement I made earlier, I have downloaded music illegally from Limewire, and trust me, I felt guilty doing... Read More

This event marked the beginning of the celebration of all people all around the planet coming together and finally sustaining our home. This movement ain't just for hippies anymore.

Ok, so this weekend, Friday, the 6th to be exact, is another walk into the "Art Scene in Oakland". But what I want you to do is avoid the little map that Rock, Paper, Scissors puts out (and it is a wonderful tool--thank you!) But it misses a key gallery emerging in the west--the Cordelia Bell Gallery, named for the woman who owned the house and sold it to the current group of artists that breathes new life into this old Victorian--Marcel, Githinji, Dwayne, and SHIT! I can't remember his name, and I pledged to buy one of his paintings. This Saturday he and his children were painting this beautiful... Read More
"After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."...Aldus Huxley Summertime, summer concerts, clubs, music festivals encompassing the whole globe, Bonnaroo just finished up, Global Gathering on the way, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury is on right now, who is going to Ozzfest and who will make it to the Warped tour? No matter where we are or what we are doing, no matter what road life has pushed us down, weather we are happier than we ever been or lower than we ever thought possible, music is there. It comes exploding with energy that makes us jump and dance and... Read More
Enrique Iglesias is back with his new album Insomniac after a three year absence from the music scene. Uncharacteristically to the name of the album Insomniac is anything but a sleeper with most tracks being uptempo. The stand out tracks are bunched together in the begining -- but as a cohesive unit, Insominiac is a hit and miss. The album begins with the melodic spell bounding Ring My Bells. The track starts off slow and hesitates adding layers upon layers of snyths, 808s, strings, Lil' Jonesque flutes, and female backing vocals as it continues. Ring My Bells is followed by the hyper snyth... Read More
