Time to hit some ground-rule-doubles for the home team, my friends. Here are a few things you should do to keep your acquaintances – at least those within two degrees of separation – happy in their artistic lives.
First up, vote for Block here on the WFUV website to keep them spinning “Last Single Guy.” Jamie’s latest, as some of you may attest, is his best, and it doesn’t hurt that yours truly played keyboards and violins on certain tracks. For best song, might I suggest “Molly Malone” by Block as well? Fill in the other entries with your faves – some of you will win the prize they’re giving away.
Secondly, Greg Humphreys’ very own Hobex has just turned a decade old, and released “Enlightened Soul” on iTunes and Rhapsody. For a stunning look at Greg’s work ethic, you need go no further than here to look at a list of the shows he’s played since 1996. A truly stunning dedication to music, and worthy of a huge hit song. I’ve loved pretty much everything Greggy Homefries has laid to vinyl, but the brand new stuff holds a candle to barnburners like “Rollin'” from the Payback EP.
Thirdly, why not take a spin on ABC’s “Daybreak”? I admit a bias; producer Abe Hoch, along with some of the Touchstone crew, are among my favorite people in Hollywood. Taye Diggs is a class act, and he is simply amazing in this show. Don’t read about the ratings – yes, I know it can be compared to “Groundhog Day” and it can sound frustrating, but I have to say, I’m fully into it, and utterly along for the ride. You don’t have to be a sucker for time-twisting plotlines to see how they’re breaking new ground. Catch this one on broadcast before having to splurge on the DVD.
