Book Reoprt Neil Young Special Deluxe

I just finished ( for the 2nd time) Listening to Neil read his newest chapter in his foray into being a author. Many of you know (and some agree) that Neil Young has never done anything that I did not like, and this book is no exception. As he starts off he prefaces that this […]

Thanksgiving Tradition

Who says electronic music can’t be cool?

Sorry for the deluge of links, but I found this on my web wanderings and thought it was just amazing. What if Nikola Tesla formed a rock band, you ask? Well, a lot of geeks have been fiddling around to give us the answer. Tesla coils usually function above the audible range, but someone discovered […]
