I’ve been tracking this phenomenon on YouTube for a few weeks since I saw a great one man band video pop up on Laughing Squid or some similar blog. I’ve always loved the one man band for the sheer entertainment value of a performer talented enough to do more than one thing at once to […]
It’s ok to admit you still like John Denver. [Here’s more info on coming to terms with your love of John Denver Music.] Anyway, was over at my sisters house the other day and she had All. I. Can. looping on the TV and John Denver’s All Aboard album looping on the stereo. All Aboard […]
