Its been a long time…

August 3rd, 2007 by hashbrown

Since, I blogged? Yeah yeah, shut up. Can you believe it, original content? Anyway that’s not it.
Since I rock n rolled? Well technically no. i was just cranking out some massive solos in my studio here. But for real, yeah, a long time.
Still that’s not it. Its been a long time since I loved a cd. Radiohead only gives me one every 3 years or so. That’s long time to go without something that just stays in the player. I remember long ago, there was a time when every new album was exciting, it had the potential to be a new favorite. And there will still plenty worth at least buying. Nowadays, I purchase 1 or 2 a year if I’m lucky. Music has really let me down. Maybe I got old and let it down. I doubt it, I find it when its good, when it stands above the music that came before it, when it demands my attention. I think its that second point that gets harder through the years. What sounds old and done to me is something fresh and fun for the next generation. Christ you’d think I was an old man. I’m a hip programmer/musician in my 30′s. (That description could possibly be subjective). But this isn’t another bitch-fest post about the state of music today. (If you’ve got a blog post about it, please leave a link in my comments)
No, this is about finding that gem that stays in my cd player, that gives me hope, that makes me happy about music. I know I’m late to the game here, but I finally found Wilco. Specifically “Sky Blue Sky“.
Don’t know how I ended up with Wilco, all the way from Va Halen, Ratt and the Crue way back then, but here I am and here they are. And thank goodness, my soul’s been as dry as this Minnesota summer.

That’s it, just an exhale. Gotta find anyway back you can.
