    Why I Don't Hate "Old Town Road"

    Why I Don't Hate "Old Town Road"

    I'm 43 years old, and I don't hate "Old Town Road." Repeatedly, I have been told by people my age, and just a little younger, that I am supposed to hate "Old Town Road." Why? Some cite how it combines genres that they assume don't belong together, country and hip hop, or because the song is overly repetitive and meaningless. Some cite the fact that the song features the oft-derided, and rightfully demeaned, Billy Ray Cyrus as a reason the song should be dismissed out of hand.

    Lesser Featured Top 10 Guitarists

    Lesser Featured Top 10 Guitarists

    Lists of top ten guitarists published by large music magazines or major TV broadcasters are, frankly, dull. Sure, they list musicians who are undeniably, immensely talented and are worshipped everywhere, but it’s always the same people on the lists. They are more predictable than a MOR 1980’s hair rock riff. A change is as good as a holiday. Alternatively, in this instance, it might provide you with some new amazing guitarists you may never have come across before and definitely should check out.

    Awakening the Water Dragon

    Awakening the Water Dragon

    In a small, but popular town, there was a local lake visited by many. Within this dark blue lake lived a dragon of water which has been in a deep slumber for many years. The dragon also had dark blue skin and did not want to be disturbed. People from all over the world have wandered through the park where the dragon lives. The park contains green grass, colorful flowers, one sidewalk for both joggers and runners, and large trees which visitors could have picnics under. At the lake, there are warning signs stating not to throw items into it. These cautionary signs were established to prevent the reawakening of the water dragon following the past incident.
