But for me that skepticism has always come with a certain morbid curiosity about what makes some songs so popular and why. Thi ... More >>

    Another Day, Another Houston Athlete Commercial (w/ J.J. Watt VIDEO!)

    On my radio show a couple months ago, I posed the question to my co-host John Granato "What if there were a list of '25 under 25' for sports?"

    Friday Night: Blake Shelton at Reliant Stadium

    Blake Shelton Reliant Stadium March 15, 2013 I want to like Blake Shelton. I really do. But damned if he doesn't make it nearly impossible. Shelton might make a decent country singer if he didn't look so pleased with himself, and if his music pushed the needle on the give-a-damn ometer even into t ... More >>

    Top 5 Old Songs Ripe for Hipster Updates

    After having grown up in a pop-music culture that every day grows more adept at rehashing, re-imagining and (let's be frank) flat-out stealing sounds from those who came before, today's indie bands are no strangers to aping their influences. And unlike post-punk and grunge before them, this class do ... More >>

    Texans-Bills: 4 Winners, 4 Losers, "Judgment Day" Edition

    So that was "Judgment Day" huh? All righty then. What was billed (by Mario Williams) as Mario Williams' authoritative homecoming, basically turned into a fairly ho-hum day of work for the Texans, a 21-9 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Consider the following numbers: - The Texans won by 12 points. ... More >>

    If Your Life Were A Movie, Which Song Would Be The Trailer?

    ​It started as a whim on Twitter, asking friends what songs would soundtrack the trailer of the movie of their life. Would their life's tale be a rollicking drug-fueled, love-filled adventure backed by the Rolling Stones' "Jumping Jack Flash", or would it be a morose and somber drifting story ... More >>
