Gearing Up For The 2013 Dark Star Jubilee

We’ve been going to a couple of music festivals each summer for a while now, covering most of them for Glorious Noise. All of them have been fun, a couple were amazing experiences, and each one had both good and bad moments. The biggest influence on how you remember any music festival experience, of course, […]

Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Powderfinger (live in 1978)

Neil Young & Crazy Horse performing Neil’s classic “Powderfinger”, before it was a classic. The video will be familiar to the Neil freaks out there; it’s from the Rust Never Sleeps movie. This has been one of my all time favorite Neil Young tunes since I first heard it as a kid. When my son […]

George Jones – Bartender Blues (live)

He can light up your smokes. He can laugh at your jokes. He can watch you fall down on your knees. One of my all time favorite George Jones tunes. RIP, George Jones. That voice! You will be missed. September 12, 1931 – April 26, 2013.

Ben Harper – With My Own Two Hands (music video)

“With My Own Two Hands” is from Ben Harper’s 2003 record Diamonds on the Inside. It’s an upbeat reggae song, with a nice fat bass line driving the rhythm of the song. Not only is the music great, but I love the sentiment behind the song: “I can change the world, with my own two hands […]

Outkast – Ms. Jackson (music video)

For the first of the two Two For Tuesday videos we’re featuring from Outkast, I posted “Player’s Ball”. A great, great hip hop track. In the interest of full disclosure, though, I have to admit that I didn’t get on the Outkast bandwagon until Stankonia came out. I blame Obama, of course. It was this […]

Outkast – Player’s Ball (music video)

This is the song that started it all. “Player’s Ball” was the first single from Outkast, way back in 1994. I’m struck by how young they look here. Originally, their record label asked them to put together a song for a Christmas record – which is why it starts with “It’s beginning to look a […]
