I'm a dinosaur who loves that old time rock'n'roll:

1. Led Zeppelin
2. Pink Floyd
3. Rush (what can I say I'm a good Canadian, eh?)

I never tire of their music. Every time I listen to one of them, I seem to discover something new.

I actually have quite diverse taste in music. I also enjoy blues, country rock, new wave, metal, punk, reggae-must be because I came of age in the early '80s when so much different stuff was happening.

Royksopp, Pretty Lights, Progression. Was feeling the beeps and boops pretty hard today. Tomorrow it will probably be Rodrigo y Gabriella, Gustavo Santaolalla, and Jesse Cook.

I'm a longtime Tom Waits fan.

I normally don't pay for downloaded music (I prefer LPs) but this past weekend I was in the middle of a really long drive in the back seat of a car on the way to Las Cruces, NM from Tempe, Az. I was getting bored with the selection in my iPhone so I decided to download the new Tom Waits record through iTunes right from my phone. What an awesome record. Technology is pretty cool sometimes.

Nice selection Spike. Tuna's great, especially their live stuff.
Rockpile...what can you say? I don't think anybody had more fun than those guys. I was into The Motors back then too.
Have you heard California Guitar Trio's rendition of the 9th? Amazing!
Actually, everything they do is amazing.

Niiice! If you get a chance to see Delta live, ya gotta go!
I was lucky enough to catch them six years ago in San Diego when they were just getting started.
Been to a few shows in or around L.A. since then, always a fun time.
Have you heard the middle brother stuff?

Check out the Passin' Me By Fly as Pie Remix. I've been listening to that one a lot.

Were you at last year's Rock the Bells? It was really really crazy. Tech, Jedi Mind, KRS, Rakim, Tribe, DJ Premier, Wu Tang, Snoop...can't remember any others.

No, I wasn't. Had to work. I've seen Rakim a few times though and I have seen a bunch of Wu Tang member shows. Meth and Red were the best part of the Rock the Bells I went to. They just put on a great show.

I went to the NY show, and practically everybody had a special guest come out. Biz Markie was there, DJ Cool, Talib Kweli came out during Mos Def's set, and then the two of the them stayed on stage for most of Tribe and Q-Tip's sets. Jay Z came out during Nas' set, and Busta came out to do Scenario with Tribe. It was pretty nuts.

I don't know. It was at the beginning of his double late summer release a couple years back. It was not well rehearsed and amateurish. It is hard to put a finger on it, but it was a mess. The graphics were cool but ended up highlighting a lot of weak points in their show (to the detriment of music).

Damn, that one sounds as crazy/even crazier than the one I went to. Snoop was probably my favorite at the one I saw, which really surprised me. I love his older stuff, but I didn't realize that he was that good of a performer. Oh I forgot, the reason I keep saying the one I saw was crazy was because all the artists only performed their best album in its entirety. For a guy my age who missed the chance to see those back when they came out, it was pretty amazing. All this makes me really want to go to another Rock The Bells.

The Sufjan concert sounds like an Of Montreal concert I once went to. It was just kinda pathetic.

Sorry, quoting myself here.
