Back to the music from Ships and Dip V -- lest you think it was all distorted electic guitar-based rock, here's some quirky music from Christine Fellows. I found I really liked her music because, in an odd fit of synaesthesia, I find it very visual. Like listening to it makes me see a movie … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Christine Fellows
Here's another video from the Pool Deck show Butterfly Boucher did on Ships and Dip V. Totally rocking song called "Gun For A Tongue" from her new album scaryfragile. (At least I think the title is all run together like that. It kind of looks that way on the album cover.) Right at the end … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Butterfly Boucher Part 2
Every year after the cruise, Sixthman, the cruise organizer, asks who we want to see on the cruise. Natasha and I kept asking for Butterfly Boucher. We saw Butterfly open for BnL once, totally acoustic, and just thought she was amazing! We were so happy to get to hear her again live on the cruise, … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Butterfly Boucher
One of the great treats Natasha and I got on Ships and Dip V as "Triple Dippers" (meaning we've been on all three BnL cruises) is tickets to the two Songwriters Panels held on the ship. During the panel, a group of artists talk about their music and get to perform it acoustic-like. Sometimes you … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies Sings A New Song

It's a floating musical festival, featuring BnL and … Continue reading Ships and Dip V Totally RAWKED!!!
C'mon, you all know it...Flagpole Sitta...

Well, maybe not … Continue reading Listening: Harvey Danger, “Little By Little”
iTunes sucks. No other way for me to say it. Which is sad, because I was a big fan when it was first released. Yea! Digital music. I can buy tracks online and save the plastic and the paper that go into making a CD. Of course, the first time I tried to share tracks … Continue reading iTunes Epic Fail / Amazon For the Win
Amazon is giving away a song a day during the days leading up to Christmas. You can download some great ones, including a Barenaked Ladies song. Ho ho ho!
If you've played Rock Band or Guitar Hero, you've probably heard a band called Vagiant. They're a bunch of tatooed chicks from Boston, rocking a pretty incredible punk style. I bought their CD a few months ago, after falling in love with the "Seven" when I played it on Rock Band. I love the lyrics … Continue reading Listening: Vagiant “Seven”
