What does Jonathan have to say?



Veteran's Day

fightOn this Veteran's Day, I sincerely want to thank all of those who have served in our armed forces.  I have great respect for what you do.  I don't have any close family members who served, but I've met and worked with quite a few soldiers in my life. I can't believe what you do.  I've heard so many stories and watched so many films about the life of a soldier.  Of course, some soldiers get instant respect.  Those who served in World War II are always thought as heros as they should be.  However, that'sposter an easy war to get behind.  Without all the brave soldiers fighting in WWII, we would all be speaking German now.  Actually, I probably wouldn't even be here. These days it seems like a lot of us our guilty of forgetting about our soldiers.  Sadly, it's easy to do when we have so many distractions.  It's no excuse, but maybe a reason we forget about those fighting on the other side of the world. Whether you agree with our decision to get tangled up in the Middle East, our soldiers did not make that call.  They have to follow orders.  I personally wish we could get out of that mess already, but I appreciate those soldiers who have had their lives turned upside down to serve our country. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The...
