Machine Head- Bloodstone and Diamonds: Hey, it’s these guys! Who I always think of Bush when I hear their name because they did that song. Oops. Anyway, I don’t think I’ve heard a lot of heavy metal like this lately; … Continue reading

Avatar season 1

Whoo, I just finished season one of ATLA and whoa this is a great show. Fantastic pilot, a lot of really great episodes (plus two or three that were kinda meh), a very real world and some great characters (my favorites … Continue reading

More thoughts on Tanks for the Memories

Cold War Kids- Hold My Home: I don’t know that I’m too familiar with these guys. Either I heard one of these songs on the radio or someone asked me to look at this one. But they turn out to … Continue reading
