“Music from Jamaica…”

“…all the love that I found…”

I realize that one of the reasons I’m sucking at updating my blog is that I think I limited the scope too much. I was walking a fine line between making it interesting and trying to focus on a topic. My particular life in the IT/Telecom world is exciting for sure, but not blogworthy on a very regular basis for the uninitiated. So, as of today I will decree that this blog will expand topics to generally anything I find interesting, including music, video games, and other cool shit. I realize I wasn’t all that focused before, but now I won’t regret writing about other topics and won’t ignore interesting things because they didn’t fit into my plan.

Now that that’s out of the way, I’d like to refer back to the beginning of this entry! I saw Pilfers* in what could possibly be (but damn, let’s hope not!) their last show of the tour in Hartford. It luckily coincided with me visiting my parents for Thanksgiving. I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go despite the show in Boston being so awesome, mostly because I didn’t want to be that guy who goes to every show. Luckily for me 2 shows isn’t every show (though it is a whopping third of them!) and Coolie Ranx personally thanked me (while on stage) for writing my last blog post.

So here I’ll say it again: I cannot more strongly recommend Pilfers as a source of awesome music. I convinced at least one other person of this so far, and I’m glad that I did. As a special note, it was brought to my attention that Pilfers prefer to be referred to as such without the article, so I’m working on writing it that way. I hope my grammatical ignorance in my last post is not the source of Coolie Ranx’s announcement that there’s no “the” in Pilfers during the last show! 🙂

As you might imagine I’ve been listening to a lot of ska and punk lately and I think that whole genre has a bad rap for being a fad. There are some really talented musicians in those bands and I will admit what many might consider sacrelidge but Ska is what got me on the road to appreciating Jazz back in high school. Fusion genres are where it’s at and more genres are fusion than you might think! More on that later…

Anyway, hopefully I’m back! Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!
