Do people really suffer during the “three weeks”?

July 5, 2007


I have been wondering this lately because I in fact suffer immensely during the three weeks. The three weeks are the single most amazing time of the year for concerts and I like many of my fellow music junkies cringe as we look at all the concerts we are missing. I wonder if other folks […]

The Shavuot Post

May 22, 2007


Have an awesome shavuos everyone. The first ever Sinai Stock Music Festival was reminiscent of other festivals for its scenery and wilderness experience. Held in the beautiful Mt Sinai Desert region this festival was anything but normal. I arrived upon the seen and swear that there must have been at least 600,000 men there alone […]

Jew-Grass: a revolution in Jewish music

February 12, 2007


Like most Jews I think plainly that most Jewish music sucks, at least the stuff that is mainstream and the rest of it I never can find it on the used rack in my local record shop. Yesterday I happened to be in Rochester and was able to hit up one of my favorite used […]

A drive through the Berkshires: yuppies, dilapidated barns, old mill towns and rich college kids

What is considered Jewish music?

January 14, 2007


I read this post concerning the efinition of Jewish music. Since he quoted Anthrax and Living Colour songs and I am a metal head I found it quite entertaining as well as bringing up the age old arguement about how Shlock Rock and regular music is really one and the same. He also brings up […]

It was cold yesterday, a cold front dipped in from the north and blanketed the area with the first hints of winter, the first weather band radio reports of any snow at all squeaked out of my weather band as I drove up route 32 bypassing the ugly costly Thruway. IA figured if I saw […]
