Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

Hello All!

Turns out you won't need a Parscore form on Monday night so you can stop looking for one. I will still do the extra credit assessment though, but I have a form for that. You will still need a Scantron form 882 though (and a pencil). :mrgreen:

See you Monday!

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

Today in anatomy we dissected cats. My cat was pregnant with babies. My lab partner then went on to talk about how her German Sheppard who just had puppies. She named the boy and girl Sid and Nancy. I asked her if it had anything to do with the Sex Pistols and her face instantly lit up. She's much ...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

I am not sure if I am making this up but I feel like Mexican music is booming. Some artist that are really receiving attention is; Maluma, Luis Fonsi, Ozuna, and others more. Although popular as an on twitter it is shown off more and from there these artists are recognized. Social media is a great ...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

I was watching a video of Bill Evans on piano. Bill Evans is a jazz piano player. What I noticed about his playing on some of his songs was that he wasn't hitting very many notes, but creating these beautiful pieces. Its interesting how advanced players seem to play less notes than those who are le...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

Today is the 38th anniversary of the release of The Wall which, if I haven't said it enough times before, was the album to first get me into rock music and is currently my favorite album of all time. As it was an important moment in my life, I took to listening through the album again today. One th...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

I honestly wished I have gone to CBGB. . . I think the band Youth of Today was probably I think the most popular band that played there. Them and the bad Brains. Do you mean after the original folks? It's hard to get more famous & popular than the Ramones, Blondie, and the Talking Heads. Also, arti...

Rolling Stone magazine came out with the list of the best 50 albums from 2017. You can find it here: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists ... 17-w511763

Any thoughts? Better ones that aren't here? Some that shouldn't be on here?

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

The hardcore punk scene has been a really big impact in my life. I think it really all started was when I met my co workers who loved this type of music. He gave me a list of bands to listen to. And the first band I started to listen to was the Adolescents. I've seen them about 5 times and know eve...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

The nominations for the Grammys are out today and I️ have to say I’m surprised. Album of the year has 3 rap albums nominated which is a lot more that normal since that’s generally more pop. It was also strange because of the Best Rock Song category. I️ only recognized one artist in the category whi...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

I had a really good thanksgiving with the family. We all sat around and listened to our favorite music. We put on some old 60’s rock n’ roll and my uncle started dancing. I was able to use a lot of the knowledge I have learned in class to educate my family. They really enjoyed learning about Elvis ...

I know there’s not really thanksgiving music to enjoy but by the time Christmas comes around I’m already sick of the mu...

My grandma recently passed away and I honestly just haven't been in the mood to listen to music much. When music isn't already on, I don't feel the need to put some on. I have spent a lot of time with my family lately and they haven't listened to any music lately either. I don't think there is a sp...

Re: FALL 2017 BLOG - POST ALL ENTRIES HERE

I was surprised when Shane likened Queen to Muse. Not that I disagree, it's just I have trouble equating the music stylings of both bands. Muse doesn't feel like glam rock, like the music belongs in a big open stadium. I was also surprised at the connection between ska and No Doubt. No Doubt and Mu...

It kind of sucks when a trailer comes out for something, and it has really great music behind that trailer, but then the product or movie ends up sucking.

Decided to listen to more of the band the alarm. The song strength came on and recognized it right away. But thought it was performed by u2. Confused me because they sound pretty similar in this song. There's more songs by this band that I know but didn't know it was by the alarm. The Alarm was a p...

I really liked some of Peter Gabriel's work, especially the song that we listened to at the end, I wish I knew the name of it. He had some really unique sounding songs and I enjoyed being able to deeply listen to a full song of his. I also really liked some of the eagles songs, although I'm not rea...

If you guys are looking for a movie to watch this weekend, I highly suggest watching Sing Street. It's currently on Netflix. It's an Indie movie set in 1980's Ireland. The movie is about a young teenager forming a band to impress a girl. The music is phenomenal and it features a lot of 80's artists...
