The Avett Brothers at Thompson's Point, Portland, ME

This 4th of July weekend had breathtakingly spectacular weather of candy blue skies, puffy white clouds, a dry, cool wind, and buckets of sunshine.  There was no better way to celebrate than with some A+ Americana in the form of The Ghost of Paul Revere and The Avett Brothers at a lovely outdoor venue on the Fore River in Portland, Maine.  The environment was perfect and the crowd was so polite.

DeBass Me OR I Am Sexually Aroused By A Good Bassline

Not just, the bass.  Not like how the low end on Robert Delong's set vibrated parts of my body I didn't know were in my abdomen, no, no.  That's very arousing, too, but here I just mean the bassline of a song.  The bassline of a song can hold a tune together and be it's sexy, undulating underbelly.  Do you have a favorite?  I'll tell you mine, after the jump.

Collective Soul Was My Favorite Band OR In Defense of "Bad" Stuff

There are a lot of things in life which are arguably and often critically bad.  Whether it's music, books, art, movies, or whatever else, we've all liked some bad stuff from time to time.  Guilty pleasures or plain ol' garbage, we should be more kind to each other and ourselves because I'm here to argue that the bad stuff has real value.  It's a you-have-to-have-the-rain-to-see-the-rainbow kind of post.    Dig into the dumpster, after the jump!

New Billing Codes

Our computer system at work has approximately 300 million codes for billing shit and staff logging their time.  Despite how long it takes to find the code you need, the lengthy list is missing some essential codes I would like, in order to accurately log my time.  The bigger, better code list, after the jump!

Enjoy What You're There For OR A Defense of Opening Acts

I'm not one of those people who show up late to shows to miss the openers.  I recently heard a friend complain about having to sit in the front row and wait out the opener before the band she came to see took the stage.  Openers are such a fun experience of newness!  Here's the thing, when you intentionally skip or talk over all the opening acts, you're really scamming yourself.  Let me convince you, after the jump.
