  1. FJ Musicians: Tips, Tricks, and More!

    Here's where musicians of FJ can talk about pieces we're working on, get advice, and curse at our instruments LOL!
  2. RIP Chris Cornell

    Another music legend dead, and at a young age as well, Christ Cornell. RIP http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/18/entertainment/chris-cornell-dead/index.html
  3. I'm Sorry, I Can't Call Him That

    Sorry folks. I'm having trouble calling President Loudmouth by 45. I just can't. 45 reminds me of a song by Shindown. And I don't want to ruin the reference to 45 in my mind.
  4. And I'm also mentally sizing up things as to where in the house I could put that.
  5. Tonight's song I've been listening to over and over is "I'm Not the Man" by Ben Folds. I am basically trying to find every live version I can on youtube. I have been obsessed with this song since the album came out. It gives me a lump in my throat when I listen to it sometimes. In February, I'll be seeing Ben live with a local orchestra. I have no clue if he'll play this one but I might go a bit crazy if he does. A lovely live version is behind the spoiler tag. In high school, I liked the song "Brick" by Ben Folds Five. But I never really listened to Ben Folds much until around maybe 2010 or so. Since then, I've been kind of obsessed. I listen to him almost every single day. I'm not sure if that's healthy or not...ha! He just has so many great songs. The one I posted above is from his most recent album. I've only seen him perform live once in 2012. We're finally seeing him again next year and I am so freaking excited about it. As dumb and cliche and it sounds....his music has really helped me get through tough times. This won't be the last Ben song I post here.
  6. So I'm the bad Jew that really likes Christmas music.... but I'm the REALLY bad person that watches these videos and fangirls about the performers - impure thoughts and all. These guys are amazing and the acoustics in the church (catholic, clearly) are impressive. I've got it pretty bad for the tenor with the long hair (Mr. Cowboy). Peter Hollens (blue shirt) is totally welcome to come and save me anytime he'd like. Anyone have any others to share?
  7. Eat your hear out DPIAT. Loads of cellos (and evil guitars) in this. Steve Vai and Apocalyptica performing Kashmir in Moscow with 30 cellos and 50 guitars . (see what I find thanks to Jill Rodriques going to Facebook Live?) I follow Apo on social media so I knew they did this, YouTube finally got around to suggestion the video to me toniht.
  8. Recently I started listening to a band from Canada called Walk off the Earth. A few years ago, they became a bit famous from a video where everyone in the band played 1 guitar for a song. I didn't take much notice of them at the time. But recently someone I know shared a video of them performing Adele's "Hello" using plastic tubes and stuff. It was really good. So I searched out more of their stuff on Youtube. They do a lot of cover songs. But since I don't know much current music, most of the songs are new to me. I think this one may be an original but I've been too lazy to find out. Either way...I love it....(And I have to admit that the guy in the middle is nice eye candy...ha!) And here's that "Hello" cover.....(the plastic tubes are a bit phallic but after a while I stopped noticing.) Here's another version of the "Hello" cover that is also really good.... In case you missed it years ago...here's that guitar song that went viral....
  9. I've played instruments- not with much skill. I play the piano acceptably as an adult, but my current set of friends are a spontaneous lot with years of choir experience. And gorgeous voices, did I mention that? I sing on key, more or less. It's not perfect, but the pitch isn't the problem. I just want to sing well enough to blend in. Does anyone know how to go about this? An ad saying I want to suck a reasonable amount seems like I'll attract the wrong people. They're proposing a caroling group and it's sort of making me consider flinging myself off a bridge because pianos are heavy and I know they mean well..
  10. Okay - I am not a baseball fan. But the ongoing story of Rally Mantis - a praying mantis rescued from the trash by a KC Royals player in the dugout a week or so ago that is now a good luck charm/mascot of sorts is amusing me. Rally Mantis is now going on the road with the Royals. Yay Rally Mantis. http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/for-petes-sake/article95260647.html And yes - I think Praying Mantis are interesting. To this day I feel bad for not pulling over one day and helping one off my car window. The poor thing stayed on my window for a 10 minute trip at 65 to 70 mph for most of that trip. I saw its struggle. It made me feel awful and I have to live with that memory. Now to cats. A Malaysian singer/guitarist was ignored by everyone - but a group of kittens. Someone recorded this. http://www.top13.net/kittens-listen-to-street-singer/?utm_source=rcm&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_campaign=cats Video in the spoiler box.
  11. Song on Repeat - July 12th, 2016

    Tonight I have "Superman's Song" by Crash Test Dummies on repeat. Probably an odd choice. I'm sure most people don't even know or remember this song. When I was young, I had the single for "Mmm mmm mmm mmm" and this was the b-side on my cassette. It's been 20+ years and I still truly love this song. The lyrics are a bit sad but as a kid I didn't really notice much.
  12. I will attempt to be brief with this but I've been fairly verbose every time I've told this story so far. Wednesday night I attended the Weird Al concert in Columbus, OH. I drove two days to get there. I was BEYOND excited. Front row seat, meet n greet afterward-- hell yeah. I made my own Jedi costume specifically for the concert. It was made on knitting looms and then I crocheted the ends. It turned out fabulous. The 501st garrison was playing around with me when I was waiting in line at the meet n greet, even. The concert, as always, was AMAZING. Al bonked his head on the microphone stand spinning around at the end of the polka. He laughed it off but that still looked kinda painful. He sang the second line of WBUL to me. The lady next to me got the last bit of WBUL sung to her so I got a REALLY awesome camera angle for that. The whole concert was so much fun and the audience had such great energy it was just fantastic. And then the meet n greet happened and HE REMEMBERED ME. He remembered my name. Like, my meet n greet pass has my last name on it and the date from that show, so I doubt he got my name from THAT I wish I wish so bad that I could've seen the shocked look on my face when he said "Hey! Emmaline! It's so good to see you again!" Because I KNOW it had to be hilarious. I wasn't expecting that. I wasn't allowing myself to expect that or ANYTHING tbh because getting your hopes up is the easiest way to end up having a bad time. I just wanted to hopefully not mushmouth when I asked for the picture the way I wanted it and Suffice it to say, mission accomplished. He signed my lightsaber. WEDNESDAY NIGHT WAS AWESOME.
  13. I had hoped that they would put a video of this up and they did. Apocalyptica 'official' Emil & Dariel (Rockcellos I believe) with their idols Apocalytpica in Tampa performing Hall of the Mountain King. This is the only piece of 'classical' music that Apo performs regularly. Eat your heart out DPIAT.
  14. KISS ripped off who?

    So I'm spending quality time on my holiday weekend surfing YouTube (don't knock it - it makes me happy). And recently while watching Black N Blue videos I recognized a familiar riff. But the familiarity was not from Black N Blue (from their song Nasty Nasty). Nope, if was from KISS (and the song Domino). I did some googlefu. Because I wondered - did Gene Simmons rip a riff off them? He did per the interview at the link below with Jamie St. James. http://eddietrunk.com/black-n-blue-singer-says-gene-simmoms-admitted-he-ripped-them-off/ History lesson here. Gene produced an album or two of BnB back in the day. And BnB guitarist Tommy Thayer now plays guitar for KISS. And per this article (and one @HerNameIsBuffy) He and Jamie were in a Kiss tribute band back in the day. audio only of BnB's Nasty Nasty because I was looking for something in the 80's and can find lots of more recent concert footage of the song but that's without Thayer. Although if you want concert footage from last August to see that the song holds up (even with 2 different guitarists)... Kiss - Domino (Official Video)
  15. So this crosses my screen this afternoon. And it makes my happy. Foreigner - Hot Blooded. The bass player in this lineup is Jeff Pilson. He used to be in this band (Dokken - Breaking the Chains) The singer of that Foreigner lineup? Kelly Hanson. I've actually seen Kelly sing live before. Back in the 80's with a band called Hurricane. They were on tour with Stryper. (it was at Memorial Hall in KCK, small venue but great place to see music because there weren't bad seats in the place) Hurricane - I'm On To You. Now the bass player is Tony Cavazo and the guitar player is Robert Sarzo. Do those names sound a little familiar? But may they don't sound quite right? It might be because you recognize them from their brothers. Guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Rudy Sarzo from this band Rudy got tired of Kevin Dubrow (or something) and left QR for this band (which I also saw live while he was with it) (and yes, his hair is bleached out here). And Tawney Kitean the car dancing video vixen? She has a prior hair metal association as well. Because those are her legs on Ratt's EP cover. She dated guitarist Robbin Crosby at the time. And since technically the song is on the EP she was on. Ratt - Back for More. I've seen Ratt live as well. They played Starlight Theater in KC as well as Municipal Auditorium with me in attendance. The first of those at Starlight, an outdoor musical theater venue, had Bon Jovi opening for them (yes, I said opening for Ratt). I'll confess that I thought Jon Bon Jovi was a much stronger performer that night. But it might have something to do with Jon's creative use of Starlight's onstage balcony for a song or two (he did get on the balcony to sing for a while) - which Stephen Pearcy did not do. Now I'm off to spend some quality time YouTube Surfing.
  16. Sunday the vocalist for my favorite cello band (Apocalyptica) shared a video of Apo with Emil & Dariel (aka RockCellos) in Tampa. Apparently Emil and Dariel were on America's Got Talent (a show I don't watch). And they've caught the attention of Apocalyptica who had them join them onstage over the weekend on their current US tour. Since I have yet to figure out how to link to an Instagram video and I have yet to find someone posting a youtube video of this performance I'm linking to Franky Perez's Instagram (it's that first video on his page as I type this). I suspect he snuck out to the sound board to take this. https://www.instagram.com/frankyperezm Last night I entertained myself by watching videos of Emil & Dariel - specifically the following two songs caught my attention. Because of Apocalytpica. The first is their cover of Nothing Else Matters (Metalica) Apocalytpica's Version of Nothing Else Matters. (early video with the original line up of 4 cellos) And because I can, Metallica But this really made me smile. Path is an Apocalyptica original. Emil & Dariel using electric cellos are covering Apocalyptica's song (shown below with 4 cellos). And to me it looks like they are mimicking some elements of Apo's video. Apo's original Editing to add a photo on Instagram from Emil & Dariel with a shot from the performance and their gushing about the experience.
  17. Moar Cellos!

    Oh my! This is Jill Rodriques' fault. I go to YouTube intending to see her latest video. And get all sidetracked by the crazy Fins in my subscription listing. "cover' of Metallica's Battery by Apocalyptica. 4 Cellos. Yes, 4. Because the man of mystery - Antero! - is back for this one.
  18. This song goes out to everyone who ever grew up in any sort of Fundieland. May you see the truth in it, and may this truth set you free!
  19. Start The Car

    I've been surfing Youtube lately. And I encounter music from back in the ay (the 80's) that gives me the happies I need the happies this week. A few times so far this week I have wanted to leave work, go home and revert to sucking my thumb and twirling my hair. Adulting has sucked. Work has sucked. I have another canker sore. But I drag myself through. And music has helped. I had found some Black N Blue videos over the last week or so. I'll be shallow - the bass player was cute. My suggestions get tweeked by things I watch. And last night a song by Jude Cole came up. The name was familiar. I recalled liking something by Jude Cole. The suggested song was not it. So I searched. And when I saw the title Start The Car I said - yep - that's it. So here you go. (and because I can, a video from Black N Blue as well).
  20. Elevate My Mind

    My brain is prone do taking random trips down memory lane. Specifically, it likes to jump around in music. I can walk around with songs playing in my head - a phenomenon I call the mental jukebox. Sometimes it remembers a song then wonders what the song really was. Meaning, I knew the song but never the name. Or the artist. But my mind remembers fragments of it nonetheless. One such song turns out to be Elevate My Mind by Stereo MC. The song popped into the mental jukebox yesterday and hit at a time where I used my google fu skills to discover said song name and artist. I encountered this song in 1993 (yes, I have reason be this specific) doing step aerobics (which, having found this song I now miss). It wasn't something that was on my usual rock radio stations. And I suspect it didn't get heavy rotation on MTV (back when they really did play music).
  21. I'm A Freak

    yes - both work and music. I may have inherited a tendency from my mother for 'a song for everything.' Although in my it manifests as the mental jukebox. This morning I'm doing audit work (seriously - yay - I'm a freak). This is stuff that landed on my desk yesterday because oops it got messed up at year end and it needs to be done quarterly and to get us off the bad child list we need to comply. Someone asked me what I was doing because eleventy trips to/from the printer. I told said person what I was doing. Response was 'ewww.' I may have skipped - as much as my gimpy foot allows - back to my desk. Because now that I figured out what they want I'm in an odd freaky happy zone. (like I said, freak). Music? yes - there's a song for that.
  22. Covers

    On the way to work this morning, my iPhone (which I use now as an overgrown iPod touch) threw Wicked Game by Ville Valo at me thus inspiring my blog post. I got the happies listening to this and made the song repeat several times during my drive. Ville's Version the original by Chris Isaak for those unfamiliar with this song. That sort of took me on a mental trip through covers of songs that have done things for me lately. Like Sounds of Silence by Disturbed (I've probably shared this here, I'm too lazy to look and it's too stunning not to share again). But this time I'm going to share a live version from Conan a couple of weeks ago because, well, LIVE. There's also Halestorm's cover of Lady GaGa's Bad Romance (sorry folks, only a photo with audio). I consider it a sign of a good song when someone can take it and do this to it and make folks who can't stand Gaga love the song. And with that I should do something today that resembles work. (there might be more of these)
  23. So after my viewing of the latest Rodriquii video I, as I am prone to doing, surfed YouTube. I left one of my surfing finds in the Taylor Swift thread. (Taylor and Def Lepard). Sadly I watched more than one of those videos and am working to clear my mind of the atrocity that as Taylor & Def Lep singing Pour Some Sugar on Me. Ummm part of this collaboration relies on autotune and the other part came up without it and is/was produced by Mutt Lange who is a stickler. (I spared you that video). I'll aslo tell you I've seen Def Lep in concert 2 or 3 times back in the day. Including when they performed in the round (square stage, 4 front rows, it was amazing) So in clearing my mind that distaster I stumbled across Extreme. More Than Words. I love this song. But every time I hear it I think of it being in rotation at the time on the soft rock station and played at work. I remember someone I worked with at the time saying 'oh I love this song.' Followed by my thinking, 'oh honey, some of the rest of the stuff on the album (Pornografiti) and their first (Extreme) would curl your hair without a perm. That incident also reminds me of another metal song that played in the world of soft rock at the time. Silent Lucidity by Queensryche. (technically they're considered progressive metal but it's easier not to have to explain all the subcategories). It's off their Empire album. I rather wore out my cassette of their concept album (tells a story beginning to end) Operation Mind Crime. Which fell into the too deep for mainstream consumption. (By the way, I do know who killed sister mary).
  24. Apparently hundreds of Spotify account details were leaked on line; technobuffalo.com/2016/02/19/report-says-hundreds-of-account-details-were-leaked-in-spotify-hack/ I changed my password as soon as I saw this story even though I'm not a premium user.
  25. I came reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllly close to being out of my funk. The one that set up residence at the end of January. Only this morning put me back into it. So I've wandered (thanks in part to the Rodriquii) over to youtube and I'm surfing music videos. In and out of videos, back to my homepage. Then this came up on my recommendations. I love this song. There's a history with me. The local AOR (album oriented rock) station used to play this every saturday night back in the early 90's when I was killing myself working two jobs because I was an idiot and in debt. Only I didn't know who sang it. Or the name of the song. Years (decade plus) later I tried to find it. Now I've fairly good at putting lyrics into Google and finding songs. This one eluded me. The one line I could sort of remember was the one about Bellevue. So I turned at one point to friends on a private message board. Someone said Springsteen. I said no becuase I knew that the voice I remembered was not Bruce. (we'll come back to that momentarily). Someone else suggested Blinded by the Light. I listened. Close. had the right feel. Not the right song. A bit of youtube searching shortly after. Found it. For You. Manfred Mann. Now, BOTH Blinded by the Light AND For You? Written by.... Bruce Springsteen. Manfred Mann had the hits with them. Now, back to Youtubing to try to pull myself out of da funk.
