Guns n' Roses for every emotion

It's true. There just might be a Guns n' Roses song for every human emotion. There are for mine, anyway. I offer two examples below, showing two sides of the same situation.
First up, "Used to Love Her"

and "Patience"

Just for the hell of it, here's a third, "Don't Cry," that is kind of a mesh of the first two:

Shitty video quality is not my fault.

Cleveland Rocks!

and no, I'm STILL cheering for the Red Sox.

Chhhh Changes

So you may have noticed I changed to name of my blog. The change is meant to reflect my new radio show set to begin on Saturday. If you live in the Moscow, Idaho area, check me out on 89.3 FM. If you live outside the area, and most of you do. you can listen listen via streaming audio at
There's a DJ cam, too, so you can watch me playing my wicked air guitar.

So I haven't posted anything in almost a month. I get busy, you guys know that. And this week will mark the end of my time as a Seattle Weekly intern. Sad news, eh?

There's a bright side.

I will continue on with SW as the "Moscow Bureau Chief." A half-joke, half-serious position which will allow me to continue working with their blogs and throw them something in the music section every once in a while.

I've said it before and I'll say it until it's no longer true. I RULE.
