EDIT:  i’m an idiot… well, i’m just too distracted to safely operate a vehicle… yes, backing out of my garage this morning i took off my driver’s side mirror… the garbage can was a bit too far over from the wall and i wasn’t paying attention and CRACK!… it’s just dangling there by the power cable… so then we get the great idea to duck tape the mirror back in place… and well, it wasn’t me, but someone, duck taped the mirror to the windshield, effectively sealing the door… so now i’m climbing in and out of the passenger side door which is no small feat… and… yadda yadda yadda… $250 down the drain… it will be fixed tomorrow.. 

anyway… it’s now Thursday, and late, and i haven’t had a chance to update… life is crazy… but i do want to mention that CMCentral and i are not parting ways, the changes are simply in scheduling… meaning that my reviews are now due on the Friday before the release date… the problem being that i quite often don’t receive the albums before the Friday before the release date… so we’ll see how that works out… so minor changes, but i’m still reviewing four a week for CMC… at least for now… positive accomplishments for today include enhancing a lot of code that i had delivered previously for work and nearly guzzling a full 17 ounce bottle of water in one breath… (i’m such a kid at heart)… if i wasn’t congested, i’m certain that i would’ve made it to the bottom… and now i must deliver my poor beat up “blue knight” to the body shop…

peace… love… bdg…


okay, so that was fun… one more little note about the Rev Run album… it is a really good album and all, but man, it’s only like 23 minutes long… yeah 23 minutes… so that’s a major… MAJOR downside… so, yeah, i really hope that if there’s another one it’ll be longer…

one other reason for fanboy-like behavior… Rocky 6 is officially a GO!… yeah, i know, it’s probably gonna stink royally and it’s gonna mess up the fact that i have a box-set of the first five movies on DVD and now there’s going to be a sixth that i’ll either have to strap onto the side with a rubber band or break down and buy a “new” box set… yeah that won’t happen… anyway… about Rocky 6… well, it’ll officially be called “Rocky Balboa” but i’m thinking that maybe it’s the story of George Foreman… well, a white George Foreman… and if it starts off with Rocky selling some grilling tools on an infomercial… i may never even see the whole thing… anyway… ROCKY! YAY!…

if you’re wondering why i’m not writing my reviews right now… well, times they are a-changing… more on that later but here’s the latest batch that’s been up on CMCentral… not sure how good the latest four really are, since i wrote them while on vacation and i was more focused on sleeping in and relaxing and stuff…

CMCentral

  • Kevin Max – The Imposter
  • George Huff – Miracles
  • Ginny Owens – Welcome Home
  • Life In Your Way – [ignite and rebuild]
  • LA Symphony – Disappear Here
  • Sara Groves – Add to the Beauty
  • Kirk Franklin – Hero
  • Aly & AJ – Into the Rush
  • yes… as always a wide… wiiiiiide variety… sometimes i wonder how my head can hold it all in… before i go… and tomorrow i’ll try to talk about my vacation… but i want to get outta here soon and i want to bring this up before i forget… Ginny Owens and Sara Groves are apparently on the same schedule… they always seem to release albums a week apart… and it’s always tough to review them because they are similar aritsts… and people tend to enjoy them both and appreciate them about the same… but, i always end up giving Sara a higher score than Ginny… and i’ll tell you why… Ginny’s albums are great and they’re a lot of fun… the kind of albums you want to date and hang out with a lot… but Sara’s albums… now those are albums that make you start thinking about marriage and raising kids together… so i’m sorry Ginny, you’re just not… marriage material… something like that anyway…

    i’m listening for a still, small voice…

    John Coltrane – One Down, One Up: Live at the Half Note
    Maylene and the Sons of Disaster – Maylene and the Sons of Disaster
    Falling Up – Dawn Escapes

    peace… love… bdg…
