Radiohead: OK Computer

I remember when my brother brought home a copy of OK Computer by Radiohead. For someone like me, who was basically musically illiterate at the age of 13, I didn’t realize the impact this album would have on the music industry. I can remember bringing it to my technology class (yeah, we used to have…

A Chemical Romance

It was early 2011 when I started my love affair with the band “My Chemical Romance’ (MCR). I remember the moment it happened, I was looking up the recent tour dates that another band I enjoyed post, Neon Trees, and they announced they were going on tour with MCR. I was instantly not impressed, these…

Black Veil Brides Concert & Traveling Solo

I am excited to announce that I booked my travel plans for my upcoming Black Veil Brides concert. This is the first concert that I have been to in three years and the first time I will be going to a concert alone. The thing about concerts is that you’re not really alone, you’re there…

My First Cassette

I remember it was the Christmas of 1989, my parents got me my very first Sony Walkman and my cousin Joel got me my first tape. It was Alannah Myles self titled album, the one with Black Velvet on it. Up until that point, I had been only listening to hand me down tapes from…

YES!

It has been a long time since Jason Mraz’s album YES! has been available on Spotify Canada. I love this album so much. It appeals to the hopeless romantic that’s in me. While I don’t always bring that part of me out, this album reminds me that it’s okay to be open with declarations of…

The broken quiet of mourning

The benefits to working in the morning is that my body likes to wake up earlier than it used to. I felt pulled from my bed at 6:30am, which is sleeping in for me now that I normally have to be out of bed by 5am. I stumbled around getting my dog his morning kibble…

The Future of Music

Our economy is constantly changing and the music industry along with it. From my own personal consumer experience and growing up in the age of the internet, I can tell you that I am one of those people who directly contributed to the failure of the music industry. I was one of those people who…

The Darkness in Me Sees the Darkness in You

Be still my little black heart, I saw the two most amazing announcements today. The first was I came across a trailer for American Satan, a film about a band that is trying to make it on the Sunset strip but end up in a Fustian deal in their weakest moment. It stars the lead…

What’s On My Playlist This Week?

I have been listening to a lot of country music the last few weeks but this Country Coffeehouse one has got to be my favorite. I can’t tell you how many times the songs on it have sent me into tears. The songs are just so emotional and soft that I just love them.
