Where there's cheesy 80's music, there's undoubtedly a synthesizer somewhere in the mix..
That was embarrassing
The party was in full swing, the music pulsating through the air, and laughter echoing off the walls. It was one of those lively gatherings where people from all walks of life converged for a night of celebration. Little did I know, this night would etch a memory in my mind under the category of "That was embarrassing."
Melodic Marvel: Unveiling the Enchanting World of Unusual Musical Instruments
I am a huge fan of music. Some people say my love for music teeters on obsession and they might quite be right. I started collecting records (yes, the old vinyl ones with pops and scratches) in 1972. I was 12 years old. By 1997 I amassed a collection of more than 17,000 record albums and more than 12,000 seven inch singles. At my peak of record collecting I owned 30,000 pieces of vinyl.
Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii
Pink Floyd gathered in the amphitheater in the ruins of Pompeii in 1972 to film one of the greatest concert films and documentaries of a rock group of the psychedelic era. Set amid the ruins of the devastated ancient city, the camera slides up and down, panning left and right over the painted frescoes and grim mosaics that document the lives and loves of ancient people, providing a sort of glimpse into the fate of beings cut short through the sheer absurdity of catastrophic misfortune. Out of the mercurial swamp of the lave flow of Vesuvius, we have the stuff from which is born, from the burbling earth, a new and more magnificent ruin for which time will still have no pity, no mercy, or no remorse.

Halloween is a time for soaping cars, vandalizing your neighbor's house with toilet paper rolls, playing with Ouija Boards, trespassing into graveyards at night, and who knows? maybe committing mass human sacrifice at some hitherto undisclosed location run by a drug cartel in Buenos Aires and presided over by a huge, skulking, black-clad woman named Juanita. It's all fun and games until someone loses a soul.

Resende collaborated on the movie, “O”, selected at the Oscar qualifying 2023 LA Shorts Use. Real. Instruments. It’s ironic that a musician/composer, who started his musical journey by learning acoustic guitar at age 8 in Brazil, now finds himself in Hollywood composing music for VR and video games. However, composer/producer/musician Eduardo Resende still relies on his early experience playing guitar, piano and drums around Rio to now compose for the gaming industry.
My Favourite Front Man: Honouring Steve Harwell
Today we wake to the news of 90s alt behemoth, and lead singer of Smashmouth ,Steve Harwell's untimely death. As I have talked about on these pages, I am a music nerd. I'll listen to anything once, and many things twice. A lot of things, several. I've played piano since I was a child, so the ear was prepped, but still, Smashmouth remains the most pleasing to the ear for decades, and true masters of the story song - genre jesters doing their thing on every single one of their tracks, whilst staying true to their 1960s, easy listening vibe, even incorporating ska and punk elements, with that 90s edge. To me, true pioneers.
