Another year, another Soundset, and this year was nothing short of outstanding! I am a huge hip-hop fan so naturally I look forward to this festival every year.

Lollapalooza starts two weeks from today so my wife and I have been finalizing our schedules for the festival.

Poll – deadmau5 while(1<2)

Welcome to the first of hopefully many polls here on the site. I have listened to deadmau5’s new album 6 or 7 times through now and I absolutely love it.

March Music Trends

I decided that rather than doing this post each month I would do space it out a bit so that the content has more time to change and evolve. Instead of getting all wordy about things I am just going to include some visuals that will provide insight into my current listening habits. In time […]

Things For Geeks To Do On a Plane

Things For Geeks To Do On a Plane

I recently had a flight with a single layover and thought to myself what can I do on each leg that is both productive and interesting while my wife reads her kindle and my son plays his 3DS. I had to keep in mind that the second leg of the flight (or the first on […]
