Thank you for the music

I first heard David Bowie while watching the film "Detroit Rock City" well before I should have ( I was 10 or 11, and it's definitely rated R). I was being babysat by older cousins who let me watch it. In one of the scenes, I heard a song in the background of a scene... Continue Reading →

That great feeling when…

That great feeling when you share something with someone that they've never heard of before, and they end up loving it.
