My Musical Evolution – Part 403 21st Century More Movie Soundtracks

Posted by | Filed under My Musical Evolution | Dec 27, 2012 | Tags: , | No Comments

I really do like soundtracks. One of my earliest favorite songs were from a movie and a TV Theme song. My first real soundtrack was Star Wars which I adored. The Heavy Metal Soundtrack is still one of my favorite albums.  I think it is safe to say that I will always love sound tracks. […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 402 21st Century Eeeeehhhhh!

When you work with a guy long enough, you can’t help but influence each others Musical Evolutions.  Ken and I are very different in many musical ways. I’m told that he used to have a bazooka tube in a car that was too small for it. He liked to bump down the street beating the […]

Posted by | Filed under My Musical Evolution | Dec 27, 2012 | Tags: , | No Comments

Sometimes My Musical Evolution is affected by sheer random chance.  Such is the case of B.o.B.. It was my daughters first semester away at college. I know that because of the second random chance of B.o.B.. A guy who worked in sales resigned and a few days after he left, I was tasked with reformatting […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 400 21st Century From DEFCON4 To DEADMAU5

Wow Part 400, another milestone. It is fitting for it to land here on what is the latest branch of My Musical Evolution, DubStep. Why do I love DubStep? Why do people like anything?

My Musical Evolution – Part 398 21st Century A Few Words About The Beatles

Posted by | Filed under My Musical Evolution | Dec 26, 2012 | Tags: , | No Comments

I debated about whether or not to post something about The Beatles. I never went through a Beatles Phase where I was mad about them. For the longest time, my only Beatles CD was Sgt Pepper.  I can’t quite define my relationship with The Beatles.  I think that they made some really good music but […]

My friend Keith is a French & Indian War enthusiast. He participates in those historical reenactments. In doing so he has appeared in a few historical programs on the history channel and in Mel Gibson’s movie The Patriot. If you watch that last battle scene where Mel rides his horse to the ridge of the […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 396 21st Century Worth Mentioning About The Aughts

Vashti Bunyan , no relation to Paul apparently, was another of those songs that came via a commercial on the NFL Network. It might have been under armor or something.

It was just over two years ago that I heard the term Dubstep for the first time.  I happened to follow a link to a video that was labeled Sketchy Santa.  What waited for there was a little homemade looking video for a song about Santa and a Dirty Bass Line.  The video was meant […]

My Musical Evolution – Part 394 21st Century David Gilmour

Posted by | Filed under My Musical Evolution | Dec 26, 2012 | Tags: , | No Comments

It had been several years since The Division Bell, Pink Floyd’s last studio album.  Along the way, I had picked up David Gilmour’s solo stuff. It was his solo work in combination that totally convinced me that when it came to the Pink Floyd split up, I was firmly with Team Gilmour.  When they broke […]
