David Lowery's Insight on Music Industry

David LoweryDavid Lowery (Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven, and more...) gives a very insightful view of how the music industry evolved from the good old physical support market (vinyl, cassette, CDs,...) to the digital age. The bottom line: buy music, don't download it for free guys!

Help keeping the water clean

Clean Water ActionTo make a good beer, you need good water. To make good wine, you need to water the vines with clean water. Good whiskey relies on water quality. Well, I think you understand my point, water is the base of all the good stuff we like. No water, no life. So please, help keep the water clean, don't waste it, and give to Clean Water Action.

No Midi for The Moog Cookbook

The Moog CookbookI just discovered that stuff, even though it's more than 10 years old now. Anyway, this is simply out of time. The band covers tunes from the 90's and before, all with Moogs and vintage synths. I think my prefered one is "Come out and play" by Offspring. Just buy the album and like me, dance like a freak to the groovy sound of the Moogs.

Delphic on Three-Phase Power at DC 9

DelphicYesterday night cat woman and I were at the DC9 to see a British pop'n'dance band named Delphic. One more good call from our friend Mary Chang! Great energy, and well, these Brits are really the great masters of "sound". Keep on rock'in guys, good to see youngsters making such refreshing music!

Drug Calamities

GTII wanted to drop few word about a serious problem that plagues our society: drug addiction. But I'm not talking about the kind of drug you would think at first. I would like to talk about one of the strongest kind, the one that, even you, you didn't think you were addicted to: cars. Yes, you read well, cars! To illustrate my words, I would like to recommend you the reading of this story. This is the story of Ms S., who was forced to spend a week without a car for a supposedly school project. Please read, this is a mind blowing and very poignant story.
