MJ004 The Musical Journey Show – The Mad Ones

Monday’s Musical Journey Show in case you missed it. “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like …

You are what you listen to

Spotify.me can show you who you are through your music. Interesting. For instance, 75% of my music is energetic and is 68% of that is Rock music. And this is the playlist it suggested for me based of my musical listening habits:

going all in

My friend Sarah and I met for a coffee. We were both trying to figure out where the heck to go to next with the podcast we’ve been working on for nearly 2 years. It’s a habit now, one that we want to grow. I can think of worse habits than a philosophically oriented podcast. One that helps us kind …

The Musical Journey Show reboot – 1982

After about an 18 month hiatus, The Musical Journey Show is back. I’ll be kicking off the reboot with a trip back to 1982 when all us MTV babies were discovering bands like Dexys Midnight Runners, Culture Club, Men at Work, Soft Cell, Duran Duran and others. Yet still rocking the radio with the likes of The Steve Miller Band, …

Do what you came here to do (and dream a little too)

Listen! If you’re not doing what you want to do in this life, it’s on you. We live in a time where you can just about make a living doing anything you set your mind to provided you have the heart, the stamina, and the patience to succeed. If you’re willing to hustle and by that I mean, you’re willing …

Anyway, hope that you’ll join me there: https://open.spotify.com/user/1150838290/playlist/6LTiLHAMxebfUrLnEWo1k9

My year in music based on my most played tracks on Spotify in 2016

Spotify has curated a playlist of my most played songs in 2016. There are a few tracks on here that I don’t remember playing, but then again, it’s been a long year.  I don’t seem to be much into new music with exception of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’s The Getaway album.  What probably skews this playlist though is my …

I hate my life

This past week Spotify rolled out the Daily Mix. So in addition to the Discover Weekly (which I like very much), Spotify are now serving up a daily mix of songs based on your listening habits. Tapping into your own history of albums and tracks that you have listened to on the platform, Daily Mix brings together a selection of …

A southern soul searcher, a northern agitator and the girl from outer space

Meet Katalina Kicks, an awesome 3-piece rock band out of London.  I say London, but actually London is just the city that drew them together, hence the title – a southern soul searcher, a northern agitator and the girl from outer space (well, Brazil to be exact). I love these guys.  I first heard them play at the All About …

What I’ve been listening to this week

Hmm…lazy Sunday.  But hold on a minute, I had a lazy Saturday.  I probably should unhinge myself from this chair and move my body about today.  Although, saying that, my body is in need of some downtime.  I did move some heavy weights this week, 180kg on the benchpress: 4 plates today! | #Stayfit #benchpress A video posted by @soulcruzer …

What I’ve been listening to this week

Hello beautiful people.  It’s Saturday.  It’s raining. And I’m suppose to be at a food festival.  Somehow the idea of eating a soggy burger just doesn’t appeal.  Maybe tomorrow. Meanwhile… Over the coming weeks, I plan to add some regular columns to the blog, like this one ‘What I’ve been listening to this week.’ I do realise not everyone has …

In a room full of emptiness, play these tunes

As I sit listening to these tunes, I realise they are all pretty intense in subject matter. I know it’s Friday and usually folks pop in the party mix, but if you find yourself with a spare hour and you’re looking for an intense ride, then this is the playlist for you. 1. Prostitute – Guns ‘N Roses The last …

Help! My brain is about to explode.

Sometimes I get myself so excited about things that my brain freezes up like a 286 computer trying to run a Windows 10. I’m too hyped to meditate, so the next best thing is to take a long walk or a cold shower. Because of time restraints, I opted for the cold shower. That at least cleared enough space for …
