It's the Battle of the Century! (or is it?)

Man, talk about your headline grabbers, right? I mean, what kind of battle could I be talking about in regards to this week's World Music Show (8/17)? Will be a battle of sexes? A battle of the Network Stars (ok, I'm really dating myself there with that one)? Or will two World Music heavywieghts duke it out to win the right to be ear candy for you to carry through the rest of the weekend? Well, sort of.

Vinyl-ly Yours

In an age where people are so concerned about being green...less care is devoted to the care and feeding of your brain--especially as concerns music. The human body can react in very different ways to MP3s, .wav files, CDs and the once forsaken black platter--also known as the 331/3 rpm record.

I’ve done A/B comparisons with CDs/vinyl... more often than not, digital re-mastering takes away from the visceral impact of music.

Cáfe Con Música

One of the many goals I have for the rest of my life--and I guess the newer terminology is now called "bucket list," is to visit as many cáfes as I can. You know, the kind with small outdoor tables that over look parts of the city or the countryside in some faraway country. I have this image or goal in mind for a few reasons. One is for the different tastes of coffee and espresso. The other is for the culture, the people, the sounds, smells, etc. But another reason is for the music. In my mind, at least, I imagine these cáfes as meeting places of rich music.
