Have you ever suddenly realized that you have misinterpreted lyrics?
I was listening to We're an American Band by Grand Funk and it got to the lyric "the hotel detective he was outta sight."
All these years, I thought that they meant that the hotel detective was a cool guy and would let them g...

I've been interviewing for a couple of jobs lately and I'm trying to manage multiple job offers without completely burning bridges. I got job offer #1 last week (decent job but lowest pay).

The Mrs and I went to see This Is 40 last weekend and Graham Parker was in the movie as one of the subplots. (Pretty good movie BTW - there are a couple of scenes that music fans will probably appreciate more than others.)
Anyway, I had heard of GP but other than a couple of songs, I had never pa...

I'm not talking about artists, I'm talking more about the platform and delivery of music. Things have changed rapidly over the last decade since the iPod was introduced.
Now, it seems that ownership of music isn't really important for most people. It's more about delivery. iTunes, Amazon, Pandor...

Here's the guy's train of thought:
Bartman's interference costs the Cubs the game. The Marlins are the benefactors and continue their season into the World Series. The Marlins share a stadi...
