    This is a vanity that is expressly not intended to sell anything, but just get opinions and associated demographics, whether the opinions are kudoses or catcalls. As long as you stay on topic you will not be considered a troll even if you positively loathe the music and tell me it's the most execrable thing since Satan. I want to know who it appeals to and who it doesn't. I would like to get some folks' reactions to the following song demos, which are free to download and pass around and keep as long as the trailer plugging the album...

    NY Times ^ | January 27, 2012 | JAMES C. MCKINLEY JR.
    The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson has demanded a meeting with the head of the Recording Academy to talk about deep cuts to Grammy Award categories this year that some musicians have complained discriminate against certain ethnic groups. With the awards ceremony two weeks away, Mr. Jackson expressed his dismay over the cutbacks in a letter to Neil Portnow, the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and raised the possibility of protests. ----- On Thursday night Mr. Jackson told The Associated Press that he wanted “cooperation, not confrontation” with the recording academy, but he also said he...

    Charlie Barnet was not the biggest name in Swing but he was well respected as a musician by many of his peers, including Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Syrupy smooth sounds were never part of the Barnet formula and “Skyliner” with that electric interplay between brass and saxes is as exciting as big band music could get.

    President Barack Obama’s December wish list didn’t include what he hoped to get from Santa Claus. Instead, he listed big names whose endorsement he hopes to secure before Election Day in November. The star-studded list, dated December 5 and published on Wednesday by The Tennessean, contains past and current “surrogates” who Obama hopes will support him this year. In all, the list of Hollywood heavyweights, professional athletes and Washington power players is seven pages and 194 names long. It includes entertainers like Jay-Z, the Counting Crows, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks, Lea Michelle, Robert Cray, the Jonas Brothers and Oprah Winfrey...
  • America's Story (part 5) - Amazing Grace

    01/13/2012 9:22:02 PM PST · by NEWwoman · 2 replies ^ | January 11, 2012 | smithsk
    January 16, 2012 marks Martin Luther King Day. This relatively recent federal holiday celebrates the achievements of its namesake,Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , as an influential American civil rights leader. And rightly so. Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech given at the Lincoln Memorial, August 28, 1963 is one the top speeches in America's story. And I can still remember, as a young school girl, that terrible day in April of 1968 when Dr. King was assassinated and the nation went into mourning. In the tumultuous 1960s, We Shall Overcome was the anthem of the southern civil rights...

  • No BCS National Championship Game This Year

    town hall ^ | 1/09/12 | reasonmclucus
    For the first time since the BCS held its first "national championship" game after the 1998 season, there won't be any bowl game that can realistically be portrayed as a "national championship" game. This year's game can only be considered as giving the University of Alabama an opportunity to avenge its loss against Louisiana State University(LSU). The two schools can only play for the championship of the western division of the Southeast Conference(SEC). Alabama cannot even claim the championship of the SEC from a victory because that would require Alabama to defeat eastern division champion , the University of Georgia....

    I'm not a big time football fan, even though I played my fair share of football back in the day. What a thrilling end to the Denver - Pittsburgh game when Saint Tebow threw the game winning, overtime pass to the similarly remarkable Demaryius Thomas. Just as interesting as the game itself has been the media's game of trashing Tim Tebow for his praying and showing "excessive celebration" on the field by kneeling on the turf, poining his fingers up to the Lord, and other Christian confessions. The media has lightened up a bit after seeing and believing Tim's...
  • What Ever Happened to All the Old Protest Songs From the 60s? (Vanity)

    I've been following the career of this young musician called Blaze. He has a new video on youtube that's worth a look see IMHO.

    MJ's Big Blog ^ | 01/05/2012
    Billboard magazine debunks the Kelly Clarkson/Ron Paul sales bump. The magazine asserts that Kelly’s endorsement of the controversial republican presidential candidate did little to help the sales of her “Stronger” album, and in fact, her sales dropped when compared with the previous week:In the week that ended on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012, “Stronger” sold 40% fewer copies than it did the previous week (25,000, as opposed to 41,000 in the week before Christmas). And while it moved from No. 39 to No. 17 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, its upward momentum this week was caused by it having a...
  • Rick Perry’s Perry, Iowa Rally-most patriotic event ever, or most patriotic event of all time?

    Perry,Iowa — After witnessing the Perry rally in Perry, Iowa, I have a sudden urge to rush out, purchase a firearm, and start rearing eagles. And if it had that effect on me, you know it was potent stuff. The Perry rally at the HotelPattee was far, far nicer than the Santorum rally. Santorum stood on the stairs and addressed a tepid crowd of people without amplification, only four of whom were holding signs, while someone vacuumed in the background. Perry had a country music performer entertaining crowds in a nice room that Santorum seemed unaware was part of the...

    Eco-friendly singer Jewel is a bright green celebrity. As a clean water advocate, she has been helping improve living conditions around the world and in her home state of Alaska. As a famous humanitarian and eco-friendly celebrity, she’s also knocked gun-toting Republican guru Sarah Palin out of the top spot as a reality television star. Will Jewel use her star power wisely with her own family’s new reality TV show special feature on the Discovery channel about living a more sustainable lifestyle off the grid and being Alaskan? You can bet your caribou on it. Even though she lives in...
