Monday Mixteen: 10/16/17

Last Tuesday was World Mental Health Day, and in case you missed it, The Ghost had a bit to say on the matter.  My original intent was just to share a few songs that addressed the issue, but it soon became clear that the story was supposed to be much more than that.  As a […]

World Mental Health Day 2017

Mental health: those two words have been thrown around a bit the past few weeks.  The news media tosses those words out every time there is a mass shooting like the one last week in Las Vegas.  The problem is that unless the public’s attention span significantly increases, or there are more such tragedies, the […]

Depending on your perspective, this coming weekend is either one of your favorite or least favorite weekends of the year.  Our state is about to receive a major influx of Oklahoma natives this weekend for the infamous Red River Texas OU weekend.  The Ghost is not going on official record as taking sides, although the […]

Video Wednesday: 10/4/17

Changing things up on this Video Wednesday (aka VW), and for the first time, I’m not using a photo of a Volkswagen for this edition of VW.  Instead, I used a screenshot from the new Charcutery video for “Take a Hint.”  If you’re not familiar with that name, perhaps you remember the name Trey Johnson.  […]

Back in my youth, Bryan Adams recorded a song called “Kids Wanna Rock.”  Question the messenger if you will, but Mr. Adams certainly understood the youth of that time period.  The Ghost has noticed that, lately, many of the kids could not care less about rocking out.  It seems these young whippersnappers would rather dance […]

The Ghost has always maintained a soft spot in his heart for awards shows. While I have enjoyed major televised events like The Grammys and The Academy Awards, the Dallas Observer Music Awards have always held a truly special place in my musical heart of hearts. Perhaps it’s the fact that it celebrates talent that […]

A few weeks ago, I was soliciting opinions on my personal Facebook account about things that readers might find more interesting, which would also help blog traffic. One individual suggested themed playlists. The playlist below isn’t really a theme per se, but The Ghost thought it might be nice to do a monthly recap of […]

Ghosty season has arrived.  Voting begins today, and will continue until Saturday, November 18th at 11:59 CST.  Just click on the link that says Ghosty Voting and do your patriotic local music duty.  For inspiration, I’ve compiled the first ever Monday MEGAMixteen.  It’s double the normal number of songs for the same price (translation: it’s […]

Most of the songs on today’s edition of Ten for Your Attention This Thursday are recent releases. In the case of Particular People, however, their album Meat for Particular People came out early this summer. It’s a release that probably would have flown under my radar had it not been for longtime GOBL fan and friend Shelley. […]
