My Top 100 Albums of 2015, Part IV

It’s finally time. This list has been all kinds of delayed in coming out (and full disclosure, there will still be one more quick post after this), but here it is–the fourth and final part of my Top 100 Albums list. These 25 albums are my absolute favorites from last year, the cream of the crop….

My Top 100 Albums of 2015, Part II

This is coming out way late. I know. And there’s still 2 more parts and an EP/honorable mention post to go. But this list is my (blogging) baby, and I’m going to get it out into the world, one way or another, dang it. So without further ado, here we go into the next 25…

American Idol Finale Recap: Cool Kids

“American Idol” has its Season 14 winner. Since I’m actually posting this the night of the show for once, I’ll play coy about who that winner is until the end of this (likely somewhat short) recap. All I’ll say is, I’m happy with who won. (Since I stated in my recap earlier today that I would…

American Idol Top 10 Recap: Stayin’ Alive

In a 2-hour telecast of “American Idol,” many things can happen. Quite a few things, really. And when said telecast includes results as well, as will be the case for every episode this season, even more stuff can happen. Thursday night’s outing included Jeff Gordon, dripping ice cream cones, a dress whose size and scope comes…

“The Sing-Off” Holiday Special Recap: Sing

It’s been a while, folks, since I’ve gotten to sit down and watch “TV’s number one a cappella competition” (AKA its only one, Nick Lachey…). I was a loyal watcher (and recapper) of seasons 2 and 3 of “The Sing-Off,” but then I went off to Peru, and thus was not here in the States for…

Play List: Great Songs Called “Stay”

It’s been a wee bit, but I’m back with a new feature that I’ve been brainstorming for some time now. So, people on the Internet seem to love lists. I’d probably be one of those people. You just can’t resist a really fun list. (Hey, that could be a song lyric.) I’ve done quite a…

“The Sing-Off” Season 3, Episode 8 Recap: Dream On

I’m not happy right now. Well, actually I am overall, because of this delightful piece of news here in my home state of Arizona. (Sorry to get all political on y’all for a fleeting second, but I couldn’t resist celebrating.) But about “The Sing-Off”…hmmm. Not so much. The result Monday night was a miscarriage of…

Album Review: Knock On The Sky

It’s time for Anniversary Week (which is kind of a lie of a name, since it spanned a little more than a week, if you think about it…) to come to a close, with one final commemorative post (one, that if you’re an eagle-eyed reader, you’ll notice I’ve been planning for a while), one connected…

Sketches: Country Strong

Hi there! Once again, there’s been a bit of a gap between my last post and…now. Here’s another new feature…and this is one kind of without much bells and whistles. It’s where I want to basically just write. About a music-related topic that’s on my mind. For fun. And I might ramble. But with good…
