I was zooming around Google Earth some more this morning and came up with few sweet shots of some places I'd like to visit for events someday: The Miami Orange Bowl (home of the U of Miami Hurricanes): ...and the Rainbow and The Roxy on Sunset Strip....
Google Earth screen grabs of Jimi Hendrix places in Seattle
I grabbed these pictures from a Google Earth scan of Seattle, recalling my trip in 2000 when I applied to work at Microsoft . The recruiting trip ultimately proved unsuccesful, but the experience was unforgettable. I've been playing guitar since I was...

On the Podsafe Music Network's good behavior policy for members
Joel sent me an intriguing article that was critical of the Podsafe Music Network's policy for member podcast producers to swear to an oath of responsible 'Netizen behavior. Since the PMN provides royalty-free, podsafe music for open use in podcasts,...

Will/can there ever be a Metallica podcast?
I'm a huge Metallica fan. Let's get that straight. But a thought crept into my brain this evening, which made me wonder if the whole Napster controversy will prevent possible fans from producing and distributing Metalica podcasts, with MP3s being the...

Kick-ass cover songs by folks from the UK...and the circle of life
I fortunately stumbled across an online radio station (whose name I tragically can't recall at the moment), which played a phenomenal 11-minute cover of Radiohead's “Creep” by U2. It was amazing. This proved to be prophetically significant...

My next music project: 80's/90's songs featuring the word "love" in the title
A few weeks ago I started what I considered to be an ambitious side project, collecting the greatest 80's power/monster ballads . Apparently, many of you felt this was also a noble effort. J Now, I'm going to try and take this a step further. I'm going...

80's guitar tablature request: Winger's "Miles Away"
One of the side projects I'm working on is getting together a really kick-ass list of 80's monster ballads . Part of this is because I'm personally covering all the tunes for my own amusement. However, one song that's eluded me for years is Winger's “Miles...

My lil' side project: compiling the greatest 80's monster ballads
To keep my waning sanity from completely leaving me, I'm doing something I haven't done in years...made a mix CD (OK...way back when it was tapes, but I've since caught up with the times). Actually, there's a dual meaning...I'm also gathering all this...

Slipknot rules on The Tonight Show
OK, this actually happened a couple weeks back, but we get our TV programming tape delayed out here in Technical Purgatory ( Guam ), so my station showed an episode of The Tonight Show with Slipknot as musical guest. The Des Moines 9 totally ripped it...
Music hath soothed the savage developer
I've been a musician since I was 5 years old, playing guitar, piano and drums (I turn 30 (YIKES!) next month). I've learned that in software development, as in life, music helps to calm the soul. Some old friends - Def Leppard - came through for me yet...
