No More Surprise, Just Facts and Good Music

While the Wednesday Surprise was a good run it just wasn’t parallel with my life. I write when I want to (which is pretty much everyday, though it is not on this site) and I felt that it was constrictive of the actual goal. What is that goal? As far as you’re concerned it is … Continue reading

Surprise! First Post of the New Year! Industrial/Noise Edition!

I hope your holidays, or whatever you may celebrate or choose not to, were fantastic. I, for one, don’t usually enjoy this time of year, the foremost reason being that it is simply a sensory overload (and another is something fucked always seems to happen around this time…this year was boiling water on my foot … Continue reading

Surprise! No More Wednesday Surprise! I Surprise You Whenever I Fucking Feel Like it!

I pride myself on learning, finding, and sharing music that isn’t known to a majority of people. I also pride myself in having my guilty pleasures, though I do not pride myself on using the term “pride myself.” The opening sentence sounds like a douche-y thing to say…bear with me. It is not a pride … Continue reading

For the Love of Everything Sacred, Chode School is Alive Again

In all honesty, I just haven’t had it in me. The thought of writing was a weight on my shoulders and the shit sandwich was not sitting well in my stomach. Nah, man. I’m just going to bed. Sleep it off. I am not the first, nor the last, to get fucked over but it … Continue reading

Wednesday Surprise! Wednesday Edition!

As you may have realized I am a bit of a nerd. I was ecstatic to get an email earlier today telling me that I was one of the chosen few to test out the beta version of Scrabble. I’ve had morning wood before but this made my day. Now I only hope that I … Continue reading

Wednesday Surprise! Surprise! It’s Tuesday!

Wow, the Wednesday Surprises have really gone the way of the buffalo lately, huh? Well, to be fair, I have no help in posting these and sometimes things come up. And by ‘things coming up’ I mean stomach flu. Yep, yours truly, Chancellor Buckets, had it coming outta both ends. (Have you ever had clear … Continue reading

Wednesday Surprise

So when it comes to music I have figured out that drums, or more broadly, rhythm, is my favorite part of it. Having just finished the wonderful biography of Led Zeppelin, “When Giants Walked the Earth“, I learned that not only was Bonham a badass, and my favorite drummer, second being Dave Grohl, but he was … Continue reading

Wednesday Surprise

Mmmmmmm, that feeling of being nestled into a new place…new car smell for the soul. Coming home from work and not worrying about my personal safety, that’s where happiness lies. Trust me. For the second week in a row I have to do an RIP post, but this one is with less a heavy heart. … Continue reading

Wednesday Surprise

The term “guilty pleasure” has never set well with me as pleasures cannot truly induce guilt. Unless it involves illegal activities and/or a man of the cloth giving special treatment to an unwilling party, but that’s their problem. However for the sake of clarity these two albums could easily be classified as such whether or … Continue reading

Wednesday Surprise: Country & Western Edition

Longtime readers and friends will be surprised by this, maybe as much as myself. A wonderful thing about working in a record shop and surrounding myself with music nerds is being turned on to something that I may have never otherwise encountered. Now I grew up in southern Indiana in a very rural part outside … Continue reading
