So I thought it would be nice to take the girls to their first real concert. Hanna Montana tickets went on sale today at 10am, but I didn’t know there was a fan club you had to join to get the code (Ticketmaster didn’t tell you) so at 10:02 I’m on mileyworld signing my oldest […]

I had a goal these last few months which was to rip my entire CD collection (something like 1200 of them) and see how much space it took up. The challenge has been fighting people who put in terrible Gracenote track names. For example: 1) DO NOT put the name of the album in the […]

After only two years, Ternt Reznor’s coming out with a new NIN album. I haven’t heard the new single yet, but instead I’m downloading it from the NIN page in GarageBand format.

Videogames are a huge business. Halo 2 made over $100 million on its first day of release alone (well, $50 a pop is more than a $10 movie ticket, but who’s looking at that?). Final Fantasy has been one of the most successful game franchises ever. The iTunes Music Store started offering 15 Final Fantasy […]

Love this album, from beginning to end. I pretty much despise today’s new music, but this is a serious exception.
