  1. Capo 1.1

    I’m learning Dear Old Dixie for the new Pleasant Valley Boys album we’re cutting. Our schtick is authentic traditional bluegrass, so the recordings we’re pulling our arrangements from aren’t exactly the highest of fidelity. Capo by SuperMegaUltraGroovie has come in quite handy.

  2. Die Antwoord

    Die Antwoord

    My buddy Scott turned me onto Die Antwoord a few days ago. I wound up with an advance of their forthcoming album, “$0$” and can’t stop listening to it. I haven’t been this completely blown away by an album in quite a long time. Maybe a decade.

  3. Set Lists and Recipes

    I have taken pride in my paperless workflow for over six years. When I say paperless, I also mean CD/DVD less as well. I simply don’t print and don’t burn. That is until last night. My wife bought a fricken laser printer (the kind with a fricken laser) on a whim at BestBuy.

  4. Another Decade, Another Dollar

    I’m not really one to think more than a week or so into the past or future — I’m mostly a today guy — but since we are at the turn of another decade, I thought I would take a second to reflect. You know what, a lot can happen in 10 years.

  5. Bass Wish List

    I’ve been saving up for a new bass for nearly three years now. During that time the economy tanked and I noticed a marked increase in prices from the luthiers I had been keeping my eye on. My budget has now caught up to modern times and an instrument just popped up on my radar that has given my that tingly feeling.

  6. Wasted Youth

    Another cool band photo from the the early 80s. This band played a big roll in my coming-of-age soundtrack.

  7. Grievous Bodily Harm

    I recently stumbled upon this classic photo of GBH. I was a huge fan of their music in my punk days. Actually, I still am, although I haven’t purchased an album since 1987 or so.
