  • Billboard's artist of the year

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    It was definately an incredible year for 2009!  Lady GaGa came on to the scene and became a major popstar.  It was the year of the comebacks and an old band reuniting like Creed.  A certain song from Owl City set a record on my top 9 with 21 nights in a row as the number one song.  Now Billboard has just announced the top men and womans artist of the year.  Get it here!  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091210/ap_en_ot/us_music_top_artists   Now that you see who the top artist of the year put in ironic as an extra keyword, like Alanis Morrisette said, "Isn't it Ironic?"

  • Holiday song

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    The first time I heard Boy Meets Girl from Evan Taubenfield, I thought that was one of the most creative songs ever, and now hes back!   The song is called Merry Swiftmas (Even though I Celebrate Chanukah) Haha the song is as funny as the title.  It brings back memories from the summer kickoff party where Evan did an incredible job!  Hmm he wants Taylor Swift for christmas id be happy with Orianthi!

  • Boo snow, yeah summer!

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    Well as you can tell im not really a fan of the snow, or winter.  Dont get me wrong I love having a white Christmas, it just makes it so much more authentic around the holidays.  Im not much of a skier or snowboarder so I say bring on spring and baseball again.  Thats a long ways away so I figured Mr Kid Rock could help bring a summer vibe to my blog.  If anyone is driving tonight, use a lot of caution.  It amazes me how many people drive faster when its snowing.  Oh yeah and one more thing dont eat yellow snow!

  • Summer memories!

    Posted by Mike Mathers

    Hey, hope everyone had a great weekend, I spent my Sunday watching one heck of a football game!  Too bad my Redskins coudnt beat the Saints, that was one of the most exciting games ever.  So how about this weather forecast, yikes there calling for 8-14 inches of snow by Wednesday night!  For some reason Jay Sean's new song Do You Remember, reminds me of summer and all the great memories so sit back relax and think its 85 degrees out!  Put in beach as extra keyword!!
