Weekend Music: Sultans of Swing


Thie song makes me happy, but the video makes me feel old.

Happy Weekend!

Monday Music: Zepplin, 1975


I should blog more Led Zeppelin.

Didn’t have time to get a Muted Monday together for today, so we’ll do Monday Music instead ūüôā

I DID manage to get my Doctor Who review up at Part Time Monster (mostly) on time this week, and I have a very late coffee post, such as it is, at Just Gene’O. So, progress.

More here later in the week.

I Lost the Day


The Band, from the The Last Waltz, a documentary of their farewell concert directed by Martin Scorsese. I find the song quite powerful.

Here’s a first look at my improved personal blog, Just Gene’O. It needs an About page and I have to change a lot of social media links before it’s ready, but it’s substantially finished and I’d love to have some feedback on the header/background images and the design.

I’d planned to write¬†a coffee post this afternoon, but I had to go out for a couple of hours and it’s getting late, so I’m just going to¬†put most of what I would have said in that one into the Monday post.

You’ll want to stop by tomorrow if you’re collaborating with me on projects or interacting with me across social media. I’ll have¬†a preview of the next couple of months here and important¬†information about my ongoing social media reorganization.

Zac Brown plays . . . Metallica!


The enigmatic blogger known as PeaceLoveGreatCountryMusic, ¬†who runs the recently-renamed blog Apple Pie and Napalm (there’s a story there), asked me earlier if I’d heard The Zac Brown Band play Jimmy Buffett’s “Volcano.” As it turns out, I hadn’t. I said so, while thinking to myself “holy hell, you’ve never posted Zac Brown on your blog.” I went looking for their rendition of “Volcano” and found it. I also found this one, and since we haven’t had much hard rockin’ lately, I decided to post it¬†instead. Enjoy!
