A Great Live Streaming Webcam-Old Faithful

    Nothing is more like being there than a live streaming webcam. The quality is amazing on this one. I caught Beehive erupting due to the camera finding what is going on. Beehive only erupts roughly twice a day. I’ve seen it once in person and that was because an employee pointed it out....

Those highly paid session musicians are going crazy. ALL of their songs are FREE on the official website herecomethemummies.com. It does not get easier or better than this. Summer party fun would only be better if free craft beer came out of your computer. If you can hook me up with that let me...

4 Pop Divas All Score 4 Plus Stars Miley Gaga Avril Katy

     This year has a stellar lineup for the holiday push. I am crunching down some major releases into one big article. These all deliver big time all across the board. Although not my favorite, Lady Gaga’s “Artpop” is considerably better than “Born This Way”.  Going for better content over just beat this...

Here Come the Mummies-Live at the Legendary Knuckleheads: A Review

       I love these guys. I love them even more after this show.

Danny O’Keefe -Acoustic Guitar Hall Of Fame Dark Horse

   Being a long time fan and having seen him live I appreciate him enough to say he is deserving of The Acoustic Guitar Hall Of Fame. Writing “Good Time Charlie Got the Blues” is  a big thing. Danny goes much deeper than that. ‘O’Keefe’ is “Good Time Charlie” all over again. This is...

The Pet Shop Boys ‘Electric’ is a Winner.

‘Elysium’ released only 10 months ago, was to me a disappointment. One of my least favorites in the entire catalogue, at best is only 3 stars. ‘Electric’ is what The Pet Shop Boys sound like on their best releases, like themselves. “Axis” starts out with a keyboard wash intro and gets funky. The beat...
