Re: Which is the better venue-Jones Beach or Homdel?

Re: Jack Johnson Tour

I saw him at Forest Hills Stadium, NYC in June 2017. Superlative. You're in for a real treat. As for the CD, only 10 tracks, but at least 2 hits for the charts ("My Mind Is For Sale", "Big Sur"), and no real filler. The last track "Fragments" is from the documentary Smog of the Sea concerning plasti...

Re: Ole Miss adopts Landshark as its official mascot

Athletics will design, develop and launch the mascot and unveil it before the 2018 football season, according to the letter.
Guess you'll have to check at the Daily Mississippian online (Ole Miss campus newspaper) for further developments and the exact date.

Before discovering Jimmy Buffett and his CILCIA album, Steely Dan was the soundtrack for me during my college years in the 1970s. Shortly after, the old progressive rock station (R.I.P.) WLIR-FM, New York did a multi-part interview with Steely Dan's producer, Gary Katz; a real coup back then since i...

Re: Sad news regarding Jim Morris.

It must have been around the year 1999 that I first heard of Jim Morris and checked out his website. Reading through his notes and lyrics, I knew even before I bought my first CD that I was going to enjoy his music. We "MetroNuts" (NYC area) had the pleasure of hosting him both as solo acoustic act ...

She won for Best Actress (in a leading role) in the movie "Room"

Hard to believe that just ten years before, she was doing pop music as well as the role of Beatrice "The Bear" Leep
in the movie Hoot. Her song "Coming Around" is part of the soundtrack.
