Transcending The Decades

Apps like iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, and Pandora have become so prominent, it’s hard to imagine why anybody would go out and actually BUY an entire album. Or CD. Or whatever you call it.

Virtual music platforms are great for many reasons, one of which is the convenience of being exposed to bands and songs you probably wouldn’t have heard of, otherwise.

For instance, probably 60% of my Spotify playlists are comprised of bands I hadn’t heard of until Spotify recommended them. It’s amazing how many talented musicians are out there and it makes you wonder how many talented musicians and bands were around in past generations that never stood a chance due to the lack of technology.

Even with all this new exposure to endless talent, when asked what the ten greatest rock albums were of all time, this one poll concluded that not one existed after 1990.

Do you agree with this list?



Running For A Dick

Running is certainly not for everyone.

In theory, it seems like a logical step to take if you’re looking for a doable workout program. After all, you don’t need a gym membership or fancy equipment or much coordination (save for being able to put one foot in front of the other without tripping over your shoelaces into oncoming traffic.)

In your head, you visualize yourself like Forrest Gump on the open road – smiling at admiring bystanders as the wind blows through your mane and you become one with the road and all things zen.

Of course, the reality is that three minutes can feel like an eternity and everything from your lungs to your knees to your teeth hurt.

Which is why you need a strategic plan to keep you motivated until you find your groove.

This one woman decided to use her running app in a very creative way – proving the old adage that “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” Or, in this case, where there’s a Willie, there’s a way.”
