    Funny thing about MetroNorth

    After catching an epic Phish concert at MSG on 12/29, I took the MetroNorth from Grand Central to meet my cousin to see Dark Star Orchestra at the famed Capitol Theater in Port Chester.

Today I was dipping into the 330+ song Jimi Hendrix section and stumbled across this […]

    Radiohead streamed live from Coachella

    YouTube is streaming live from Coachella this weekend. I don’t normally watch live concerts on my computer but I was working tonight and had this going on my second screen. As it got late, Radiohead came on and I ended up working less and watching more, captivated by the set which featured a series of […]
