Last Saturday night Casey and I attended the Britney Spears Circus tour at its stop in Grand Forks. It was quite the experience, and easily one of the city’s biggest events of the year. I’m glad we were able to see Britney once, but I don’t think I’d go again if she came back to town […]
Green Day Live in Fargo
This year’s Father’s Day gift from Casey and the boys was two tickets to see Green Day (one of my all-time favorite punk rock bands) live in Fargo. The concert was last Friday (July 10th), and they put on a great show. I became a fan of Green Day as a teenager with the release […]
Although a full schedule at work and at home have prevented me from writing much here lately, I wanted to take a minute to share an awesome song and video with you. It’s called Pork And Beans by the band Weezer, and you can view the video below, or at YouTube. In case you didn’t […]
Video from the Blue Man Group in Fargo
I finally managed to pull the last few videos and photos from last month’s Blue Man Group concert off the digital camera last weekend. It was an unbelievable show that I’d recommend to everyone. Our seats turned out to be really good, which gave me the chance to take some decent photos and videos with […]
Blue Man Group in Fargo Tonight
The Blue Man Group How to be a Megastar Tour will be in Fargo tonight, and Casey and I will be taking in the concert. Friends who’ve seen it say it’s the best show they’ve seen, so we’re pretty excited. It seems that they encourage fans to bring their cameras, so I might have some […]
Music Wants to be DRM Free!
Digital music fans received some great news this morning: EMI (one of the largest record labels) is going to start offering DRM-free songs on iTunes. This is big, big, big. I’ve written about my extreme distaste of DRM before, but I didn’t think we’d see the beginning of its death so soon. I fully expected […]
I’m not a huge fan of Nine Inch Nails, but I think their gorilla marketing campaign for their upcoming album Year Zero is awesome. The band gave its first clue on the back of a tour t-shirt, which lead to a cryptic website. This, in turn, led to more sites being discovered, which unraveled a […]
What Are You Listening to Right Now?
I am constantly keeping my ears opened for new music of all types, most recently with my discovery of the Silversun Pickups yesterday. So, dear readers, I’m asking for your help. In the comments area of this post, tell me what artists/albums/songs you’re currently listening to right now? Even if you don’t consider it new, […]
I just discovered a new band today: the Silversun Pickups out of L.A. Their song “Lazy Eye” is unbelievable. I can’t get it out of my head. So, I thought I’d spread the love. You can view the video below, or on Youtube.
December 13, 2005: Dean Gray Tuesday
In early 2004, a musician named DJ Danger Mouse released a mashup project which he called the Grey Album. Being it was a remix of the Beatles’ White Album and Jay-Z’s Black Album, it was a very cool and fitting name. Shortly after the album was released on the Internet, music company EMI sent a […]
