More Encouragement of the Unabashed Desire for Self-Expression, Love, and Fame

Having earlier today in my all day blogathon celebrated and analyzed Kermit the Frog’s unapologetic fame seeking, I thought it would be fitting to post one of my very favorite songs, as it is on the same theme and performed by artists with whom I generally identify much like I identify with Kermit: Your Thoughts?

Ingrid Michaelson's "Ghost"

I love when cool new stuff comes out on my birthday. This January it’s going to be Ingrid Michaelson’s Human Again. I love her earlier albums, especially Girls & Boys. She is admittedly prone to being a little too twee and precious at times, but at her best she is has a real way with [Read More...]

John Lennon Did Not Imagine That "All Religion Is True"

So Cee-lo Green sings “Imagine” before the ball drop and, as has been done before, the lyrics are appallingly sanitized, changing “no religion too” to “all religion is true”. It’s sheer cowardly pandering bullshit. If you can’t respect the ideas of the song then just don’t sing the song. Leave it alone. Don’t twist it to [Read More...]

Shelley Segal's "An Atheist Album" Is Very Good

Alessi's Ark's Rendition of "Maybe I Know"

Laura Marling was fantastic as expected last night. Her opening act was another 21 year old Englishwoman, Alessi Laurent-Marke, who performs as Alessi’s Ark. Her set was very low key, just her on acoustic guitar and behind her an electric guitarist who would back her up in modest ways. Mid-show someone called out a request [Read More...]

As I Watch Laura Marling Perform

I got very lucky and my one Wednesday night off this semester (and one of my only week nights off period this semester) coincides (tonight) with the genius Laura Marling’s one trip to New York City on her fall tour for her fantastic new album, A Creature I Don’t Know. I am about to head out [Read More...]
