Long day.  I don’t feel like writing.  So here, I’m sticking you in front of your smart phone/computer screen/whatever and putting some videos on to entertain you. Andrew Holmes, “England” French 75, “Your Love” Girl Blue, “Dreams” Hello Shannon, “Slowly” The Lash Outs, “Sha La La” And… that’s all I got for you today.  Come […]

Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II

Monday Mixteen 20171030part2

The Ghost has always thought it to be rather cliched to do songs about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the like for Halloween.  Instead of using the obvious imagery, I like to use a different comparison for this holiday.  Halloween is a time for dressing up as a different creature.  The closest musical kin to dressing […]

Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part 1

Monday Mixteen 20171030

With the end of October being upon us, this seemed the appropriate time to do a recap of some of the best new music of the month.  I also wanted to do an all covers themed Monday Mixteen playlist.  After much thought, the solution became clear.  One playlist wouldn’t be enough today.  Part 2 of […]

Before I begin today’s Video Wednesday, let me remind my readers that I am very comfortable with the idea of selling out and getting a sponsor.  My deal is still open to allow any Volkswagen dealership the opportunity to sponsor Video Wednesday.  That’s why it’s on a Wednesday: so I can call it VW.  Other […]

No time for idle chit-chat.  Let’s just dive into these ten songs, listed alphabetically by artist, iTunes style. Andrew Holmes demonstrates a very unique vocal style on the track “England”.  It made The Ghost wonder if perhaps England wasn’t just a song title, but a former home.  His Bandcamp page says he’s from Abilene, and […]

Do not let the cover photo give you the wrong idea.  It’s not that The Ghost is only about the benjamins.  No, the blog is truly a labor of love.  Having said that, there are many endeavors that I would like to take on, and some extra money would help me better pursue those endeavors.  […]

Where The Ghost Will Be Today: 10/21/...

DEOM

You know, The Ghost has missed the opportunity to broadcast live via internet radio.  At the moment, there is no signs of that changing in the near future.  If you do miss getting to hear The Ghost spin cool local tunes, I have the perfect opportunity for you.  I will be playing a bunch of […]

So, about these Ghosty Awards… voting is still open.  You do remember that, right?  You can still vote until November 18th at 11:59 CST.  Of course, that leaves the following question: who should you vote for?  I’m not one to try to sway the voting, but I do believe in an informed electorate… er… readership.  […]

What does a Ghost do when there’s more killer tunes to share than there is time in one’s life to write about such music?  You split the difference down the middle, and do an abridged Ten for Your Attention.  I am setting a goal for doing a full size one next week, as there were […]

Monday Mixteen: 10/16/17

blue cassette

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 […]
