Serious question. How in the hell is it Seppa-tebby-tebby already? No, scratch that. How are we already half way through it? I’ve learned especially in the last few years that what older people have always said to me about each year going faster than the last is true. 2019 is absolutely the fastest one yet. […]
Behold the federal Conservative party’s official campaign song. Awful, isn’t it? And I’m not just saying that because it’s a Conservative song and I’m not a Conservative voter. It really is bad. You hire Jim Vallance, who helped Bryan Adams write some of his most famous and well loved works, and this is what you […]
Before Bell converted it into a dumping ground for stuff moved off of the Comedy Network in order to make room for even more Big Bang Theory reruns, MuchMusic was a very important, you might even say revolutionary TV channel. It was, as its name suggests, a music station. 24 hours a day, 7 days […]
I saw the song “Never Google Your Symptoms” show up on the Dr. Demento official Facebook page and thought “This is so totally a song for me!” Heck, I can even picture Steve singing it to me whenever I decided to hit the google if I had some new medical wrinkle. Sometimes, Google has been […]

Botnik Studios fed a neural network a whole bunch of country music and then asked it to write a song based on what it learned. The result is “You Can’t Take My Door”, a song better and more lyrically challenging than anything I’ve heard on country radio in years. This is part of a larger […]
Alan Cross spent a couple of years working with the Toronto Maple Leafs, helping to redesign the musical experience that anybody who has ever watched or been to a sporting event is likely familiar with. He recently wrote an article about what exactly that involves, and surprisingly it’s a hell of a lot more than […]
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on our old friend the Floppotron, so here it is playing Bohemian Rhapsody. The modem is a nice touch, and the end made me laugh.
Eduarda Henklein started playing drums when she was four. AT five, she did this. She’s now almost ten and has turned pro. Keep up that practicing, you guys.
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned it, so since you may have forgotten because we all have Spotify now, record labels and the people who make decisions for them have always been and continue to be pretty terrible. If you have trouble believing that or for lord knows what reason want to dispute it, […]
