Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Long Weekend Ahead

and what a long day today has been. Got a lot accomplished here at work though. Hung our new key material and finally finished the sound booth and got Second Cinema ready for tonight's airing. Hope to get alot done this weekend on the home front and might try to catch a Durham Bulls game on Sunday. Not a big baseball fan, but I do love me some Ball Park activites, ie. heckling, PBR's, and dogs. Listening to The Harder They Come soundtrack right now and it is definently getting me in the mood for the long weekend. I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend and think about what the "4th" means and who has sacrificed for us to have these luxaries. Will post more later tonight or tomorrow morning. Have a good one...

    I too may see a Bulls game this weekend. I'm a recent convert. Who knows or cares what happens in the game when you have good pizza, cold beer, fresh air,and children sumo wrestling. And karoake champions. And costumed characters doing donuts in crazy supercharged gocarts. And fat people falling drunkenly over and into your row and seeming to need to have broken a neck or back, but cartoon physics is the rule of the day at a Bulls game. Improbably dressed women try to get noticed while scooting through rows of equally improbably dedicated fans filling out those score/stat cards you get handed at the door. When you walk in, you may run into your date's boss showing headlights in a bra free shirt. On the way to the beer stand, you are happily suprised to see a balloon animal twister entertaining children. Where are you? This is great. As you leave, sunset dulled by Miller Light and junk food, you hear a Billy Joel impersonator rustling up some nostalgia for something you never actually experienced before. Just like the nostalgia of this Bulls game. These people have figured out how to extract the magic experience of the bar, the concert, the diner....... and added clean bathrooms and a community feeling, free of random unwanted danger. Yeah, I think I like it too.
