Picture Site

Awhile back I started playing around a bit with Buzz Net, basically a photoblog type site – but never did too much with it. When I started having problems about a month ago with some readers at Blogcritics not seeing the photos in my articles, I was guided (waves hi to Joan) to Flickr (acct …

Totally Sucks

So – I decided I’m going to start posting short fiction here from time to time, mostly as an incentive to actually write fiction now and again.  So in order to break into it and set a bar I was going to just post one of my shorts.  The one that came to mind, I …

Bridges

(Since this new journal has catagories, I’ve decided I’m going to post fiction peices every now and again — this appears on my main site, but I’m using it to break in the catgory.) Sitting at the kitchen table, Jake slowly rolled the bottle around on end watching the whiskey splash the sides of the …

Quiz and Life

Last weekend was the official kick off to the new Pony Club Rally season with Quiz. We tried to get out of town on Friday early so we could get settled in at the hotel and have dinner up there, but we only got as far as the gas station on the corner when we …

Breaking In The New Journal

So, I’ve spent the better part of this past week setting up this new journal, when I wasn’t doing the editing thing over at Blogcritics.org. It was a lot more tedious and I made it much more complicated then it needed to be. Once I settled down, it went pretty smoothly. All except for importing …

CD Review: Russ Rentler – Scarecrow’s Lament

Scarecrow’s Lament is a collection of self-penned folk ballads (except for two tracks) which draw on easily identifiable emotions. If that weren’t enough, he alone provides most of the …

CD Review: Enlow – The Recovery

Loud screaming and driving, pounding beats, that’s what really good hardcore, emo-punk music is supposed to be about. Right? If that’s the case Enlow has the formula down with their CD, The Recovery. They throw another angle into the mix, though, and that is a Christian message. I find it to be an interesting mix, …

Single Review: Ichinchilla – “Record Player”

With an infectious beat and a sound that immediately reminded me of Devo, I had held out high hopes for the song, “Record Player” by the London native, Ichinchilla. As the song progressed, I found it to be typical of the genre; solid, but not the stand-out piece I had hoped it would be. Continue …

CD Review: Flipsyde – We The People

Hip hop is probably best known and categorized by strong rhythmic beats and revolutionary messages, and Flipsyde offers plenty of both in their recent release We The People. Members Piper, Steve Knight, Dave Lopez, and D-Sharp all have vast and unique backgrounds, but all had a common theme running through their previous works – political …
