(Eric D. Johnson, yours truly, and Kevin Morby at Fisherman's Village Music Festival 2018) Friends, family, internet randos- it's been real. Despite my glaring shortcomings when it comes to writing about music, I've given it my best (or close, anyway) effort for the last 28 months. Fact is, I'm ready to spend a little less of … Continue reading The Blog Is Dead. Long Live The Music.
It’s been quite a ride for Dexter Holland and the boys from Garden Grove over the last (nearly) thirty years- have a listen and hear for yourself. No band personified the metal-punk movement of the 90s more than these dudes, at least for me. Sure, they incorporated more pop elements along the way, and I’m … Continue reading InMyRoom’s Best-of Playlists: The Offspring
AKA see ya in September! (Imagine this picture with 95% fewer jackets...) Sure, when a plan falls apart, disappointment is a natural response.

This bad boy is now about as long as Titanic, but far more enjoyable… Stay safe, don’t check your 401k, and wash your … Continue reading Coronavirus Pandemic Playlist – The Final Chapter
Well, this shitstorm isn’t ending anytime soon, so I beefed up the playlist. Oh, speaking of shitstorm, diarrhea is NOT one of the symptoms, you TP hoarding psychos. Thanks to the internet (nods to KK) and yours truly having more time to consider this situation we find ourselves in, here is the new and improved … Continue reading My Official Playlist to the Coronavirus Pandemic, v2.0
The most popular hard rock band in history has quite an impressive catalog- here are my favorites. Being the audiophile (read: music nerd) that I am, I’ve made my own greatest hits playlists on Spotify for all of my favorite musical acts. Most are short enough that they could fit on an album, or at … Continue reading InMyRoom’s Best-of Playlists: Metallica
