Paul McCartney: Target Field, Aug. 2, 2014

My wife, my parents and a number of friends and I went to Paul McCartney's show at Target Field in Minneapolis. It was amazing! Sir Paul did 39 songs (40, if you count the Jimi Hendrix tribute), and he was in spectacular form. His voice was great, his energy was high, you could tell the week of rest he'd had between shows rejuvenated him. I've never seen him dance or smile so much (and he's an entertainer, he does this kind of stuff regularly), and he actually wiggled his bottom at one point. He was feeling the love!

It's been FOREVER, and my apologies

Hi there, folks.

Like so many bloggers, I'm afraid I let my blog go dark for a long time there.

The reasons were many. First, I've just been so busy with real life. Honestly, since my job has me at a computer for so many hours each day, it gets difficult to want to sit in front of a monitor during my free time. Second, a lot of the music I've been listening to the last year or so has either been stuff I've blogged about, OR is new stuff that I haven't really digested. I try to be a reasoned opinion giver, having taken the time to let music settle with me before I give opinions on it.

The third reason isn't as fun or even as understandable, perhaps, but it was a factor in my taking a break: I was getting so many requests from people who just wanted links to the music I was discussing. As I've said since the beginning, I don't provide downloads. I strongly encourage everyone to buy music, or to go through sites where artists and companies get compensated when the music is enjoyed (be it Spotify, YouTube, etc.).
