The Ghostified Gathering

Music Festival

For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The […]

Monday Mixteen: 4/29/19

I had some ideas of what to cook up for today’s Monday Mixteen, but I just couldn’t figure out the right musical ingredients for the playlist.  On top of that, The Ghost just didn’t feel like serving up the dish of a carefully curated themed playlist.  So I did what people do when they’re lazy […]

Most of my Monday Mixteen playlists have some sort of theme.  The sixteen tracks selected have a loose musical connection to them.  All of the songs are within what I would refer to as “rootsy” music.  What exactly does that mean?  To me, it means anywhere along the musical spectrum that contains Americana, country, blues, […]

A funny thing happened on the way to making last week’s Monday Mixteen. WordPress would not allow me to log in to update. Even once that issue was resolved, several previously published articles disappeared. Bah humbug. The plan was to make last week’s Monday Mixteen a tribute to Three Links’ anniversary weekend, and to promote […]

John Lennon said that life is what happens when we’re busy making plans.  All too often The Ghost’s plans have a way of getting derailed by life.  I make no promises that this sudden burst of productivity is a trend rather than a fluke.  Here’s what I will say; The Ghost has missed this.  I’ve […]

Don’t worry; The Ghost did not leave this week’s Monday Mixteen out in this brutal heat.  It just seemed like the perfect photo for this week, given this scorching weather and all.  Yes, it is way too hot to be outside unless absolutely necessary.  It’s better to find a nice indoor activity to do.  Something […]

I’ve designed this special playlist in honor of President’s Day. It’s an acrostic playlist, and here’s a little refresher from your high school English class: an acrostic poem forms a word with the first letter of each verse in the poem. Except in this case, it’s the song titles that form not a word, but […]

Monday Mixteen: New Year’s Day,...

Monday Mixteen20180101

2017 was a crazy roller coaster ride of a year for The Ghost.  I went the first two and a half months of the year without a peep of the blog due to life stresses.  After that, posts were sporadic as best.  In fact, The Ghost came close to taking an “indefinite hiatus” from the […]

The Ghost has always avoided doing Best Albums of the Year lists.  There is something intimidating about making such lists and making certain that your words are appropriately eloquent for each of the releases.  But for the first time, The Ghost is taking on the task… sort of.  What follows is an unranked listing of […]

The 7 Best Performances of 2017

Let me just stipulate this fact: I have been to fewer local shows in 2017 than any year since probably 1999.  This started out as a rough year for The Ghost, and as a result, there are many excellent shows that I’ve missed out on.  I cannot claim that this a thorough and comprehensive look […]
