Currently have 3 new CDs in my car’s 6 disc changer: Rival Sons’ Feral Roots, Santana’s Africa Speaks, and Gary Clark, Jr.’s This Land, replacing some Al Di Meola, Joe Bonamassa, and Roby Lakatos.

Of the three, Clark’s is in some ways the least accessible. He’s trying new stuff, sonically, and some just doesn’t fit his image. And the opening track uses...challenging but appropriate lyrics. The guitar chops are NOT questionable, though.

Santana’s album is a melding of his early career and his modern one. It’s heavily influenced by African music- hence the title- and much of it sounds almost vintage. I keep thinking of his jazz fusion period albums like Borboletta and Caravanserai. But there are still things that fans of his more recent work will enjoy...even though I have yet to identify anything that sounds like a radio single.

Which brings us to Rival Sons’ album. I make no secret I’m a huge fan of theirs. I have all of their releases except the first one, which is rare and pretty pricey. I often keep their most current CD in my changer until the next CD gets released. This album looks like it’s headed that same direction, with some of their best lyrics to date.

Life Before the Flying Circus.

Nice biography of how Monty Python's Flying Circus got together.

Boy has it been along time since we got anything new from Crazy Frog.

Sure this one is only 1:15 minutes long, but still...

Wow, nostalgia trip.

Years ago as me and dad were driving somewhere this song came on the radio.
Dad: "Who is that girl singing? Sounds familiar."
Me: "Kylie Minogue."
Dad: "No, seriously. I know I know her from something. Really famous singer."
Me: "It's Kylie Minogue."
Dad: "No, she used to be on television when she was younger. Several shows."
Me: "Yes, we are still talking about the same person. It's Kylie Minogue."
Dad: "Fine, be that way. I'm asking your mother when we get back. She'll remember."
Me: "I know she will. Kylie Minogue is a favourite of hers."

That is funny. haha

I was in Prague visiting friends and "can't get you outta my head" was playing everywhere (games, clubs) until I couldn't get it outta my head.

Rowan Atkinson in one of his roles.
I like this stuff better than his Mr.Bean stuff.

This one comes with a joke:

Woman: My husband has been sick for days, it's driving me crazy!
Father: Have you thought about trying euthanasia?
Mother (in the back ground): It's echinacea!

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil


I was surprised by them revealing that there are other sprites like her.

So maybe, it is thru them that Maleficent learns to transform in the Dragon. Or it is from their combined effort that one can become a Dragon.

Hopefully in a second trailer they will show the Prince facing the Maleficent Dragon.

Now THAT would be really exciting to see!

< I came across this old Playstation 1 game that I had never heard of so I checked it out on Youtube. The game hasn't aged well, but man is the sound design amazing. Even has pretty good voice acting. Anyways, I was listening to this particular track and for the longest time couldn't figure out what it reminded me of, but then it hit me. It's this old thing:

I just discovered a French psychedelic guitar band called "Stoned Century." I'm currently listening to their latest album, "Slaves of the Fall."

I luv it.

Just when you think the hero escapes, he runs into more guards.

The music places perfectly into it.
