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 […]

Thoughts on the 2017 Dallas Observer ...

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 […]

Press Release: The 2nd Annual Ghosty ...

IMAG0547

The following is The Ghost’s press release for The 2nd Annual Ghosty Awards.  In an unusually rare move, The Ghost is mentioning his personal identity on the site.  The Ghost is, however, omitting the more personal details from the press release like the phone number.  It is, however, given in the actual press release that […]

Are You There Dallas? It’s Me, ...

Dallas_Texas_Night

Dallas, I have something to confess. I’m going through a crisis of faith regarding you as of late. While these feelings have been present for a long while, hearing the news regarding Jeff Gage has brought it to a point where I can no longer stay silent on the issue. This comes after the Dallas […]

Helping Hand

Bravo Hand 1

For the past nine years, The Ghost has been working hard to help promote the great music both in the DFW area and throughout this state.  This is a project I have taken on single-handedly.  While it has always been a challenge, I have mostly been able to do the work/blog juggle.  Lately, however, I […]

The Ghost Is Going to Bandcamp

First, let me say that I feel a little awkward sharing this upcoming post after the tragic events in Dallas last night.  The Ghost’s heart goes out to the family and friends of the officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.  My heart is still heavy, as I’m sure yours is too. […]

Spreading the Love This Music Monday

At its best, the local music community can be a truly nurturing and supportive environment.  I’ve met a number of fabulous people in this community that are genuinely concerned with helping others in the challenges faced being a musician.  As its worst, however, there can be a clique like quality that makes you feel like […]

New Year’s Revolutions: Part II...

TheUnderpass212

This edition of the New Year’s Revolutions posts is admittedly more self-promoting than the others.  Before 2016 began, however, I made a decision that there would be at minimum of one GOBL sponsored show each month this year. How am I doing on my resolution, or should I say revolution?  Well, as you know, I’ve […]

Bowie

David_Bowie_1976

I went to bed last night, thinking some idiot hacked David Bowie’s account, spreading a false rumor regarding his death.  I woke up to the painful truth that the news was hoax; David Bowie was no longer with us.  Like so many of you, this news hit me in the heart.  I cannot think of […]

New Year’s Revolutions: Part II

rbcunderground

I regret that my schedule is not allowing me to post as freely as I have the past several weeks.  I have so much in the way of thoughts, ideas, and music to share.  This piece is published far too late.  In fact, I’m giving you barely over half an hour’s notice for this event. […]
