My Very First Blog Post Revisited #MYFIRSTPOSTREVISITED

I’m honored to have been nominated by fellow blogger Jeff Archuleta at Eclectic Music Lover to participate in the ‘My Very First Post’ challenge.  I don’t normally do these little things and just stick with my normal schedule, but I figured it is Jeff and one of the first bloggers that followed me, so I owed him that much.

I created my music blog on April 17th of 2016 on the encouragement of my lovely wife. She felt I needed an outlet to talk about my passion for everything music.  I love all types of music, but so far my focus has been in the Rock, Pop & Christian genres.  I will crossover into other areas if something moves me.  I do album reviews, playlists, artist spotlights, song spotlights and talk a lot about my vinyl collection that I started as a result of this blog.  A lot of it focuses on my family as well and what they might be listening to and concerts we might see.

Now when I started my blog, I had 10 posts that day and they didn’t pop up in the order I wrote them.  The first one I wrote was a Matt Nathanson Artist Profile, but what posted first was my Road Rage Playlist which is what I will repost here as it shows as my first on the site.  I hope you enjoy.

Here are the rules for this challenge:

  • No cheating. (It must be your first post. Not your second post, not one you love…first post only.
  • Link back to the person who tagged you (thank them if you feel like it or, if not, curse them with a plague of crickets).
  • Cut and paste your first post into a new post or reblog it. (Either way is fine but NO editing.)
  • Put the hashtag #MyFirstPostRevisited in your title.
  • Tag five (5) other bloggers to take up this challenge.
  • Notify your tags (don’t just hope they notice a pingback somewhere in their spam).
  • Feel free to cut and paste the badge to use in your post.
  • Include “the rules” in your post.

Please feel free to participate. Of course, there is no obligation (and I dont’ think they will do it anyway)! I nominate the following bloggers to participate:

Mike  – Lebrain’s Record Store Tales & Reviews

deKE – Stick It In Your Ear

Aaron – Keeps Me Alive

Stephen – 1001 Albums in 10 Years

Lennon Carlyle – Fabulous With Glitches

Road Rage – Playlist

Everyone gets Road Rage at some time in their driving life. It is unavoidable. Sitting in Atlanta traffic or even Charlotte traffic now can raise your blood pressure. And how many times have you just wanted to ram your car right into the asshole that just cut you off or rode your bumper. I have too many times to count. When I get that feeling, I have a playlist that I have to put on that will let me just vent my frustration and anger. Maybe you can try it out.

Five Finger Death Punch – “Under And Over It”

Texas Hippie Coalition – “Turn It Up”

Rev Theory – “Justice”

Rob Zombie – “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown”

Hollywood Undead – “Been to Hell”

Red – “Release the Panic”

Filter – “We Hate It When You Get What You Want”

Adrenaline Mob – “Psychosane”

Disturbed – “Ten Thousand Fists”

Five Finger Death Punch – “Mama Said Knock You Our (featuring Tech N9ne)”

Yes, I have to start and end it with Five Finger Death Punch. Why wouldn’t you??? When this is finished playing, I feel so much better and you will too. What are your Road Rage songs?  I am always looking for more.

  1. Thanks for the nomination! I’ve revisited my first post in a number of ways because it was Chapter 1 of Record Store Tales, so I will decline for now. I just hit 5 years on March 9. Maybe in 5 more years I’ll do a 10th anniversary special edition.

  2. Thanks for playing, John. Your first post was certainly a lot more interesting than mine – lol. A great playlist filled with kick-ass high adrenaline tunes! As I recall, I believe it was your Matt Nathanson post that I saw first. I love your blog and all your posts.

  3. Thanks for the props Dude! …
    My first post was Kiss Dynasty Tour 1979…which i have recalled and posted a few times….

    Have a read…

    October 6 1979 …

    It was two days away from my 12th Bday and my parents surprised me with Tickets to see Kiss live in Duluth! Needless to say I was stoked beyond belief ! I mean think about it, for me as 11 yr old it was Kiss non stop 24-7. The saga began two years earlier when a buddy John Young had the Kiss Originals which was the first three Kiss albums packaged as one! As soon as I saw the black cover with the fire coming out of Simmons yap I was hooked! But by 79 when Dynasty was out and Kiss subjected the world to rock disco ( I Was Made For Lovin You) they were calling their latest tour The Return Of KISS,huh they never left well not in my mind anyways so when I made It to the show that night in October it was like an epiphany for me. Here they are in the makeup and supposed million dollar stage show .. And up they come up beside the drums Ace,Peter,Paul and Gene….they launch into King Of The Nightime World and I’m gone and now they keep going and going little did I know that yrs later there were cracked foundations within,Ace was loaded,Peter was coked,Gene banged groupies,Paul well Paul was Starchild but it didn’t matter to me I was too young to realise about inner band personal problems! For me a personal problem back than was not being able to get my math homework done by Monday!

    Looking back nowadays I remember the show pretty good…I remember them playing songs like Radioactive, New York Groove and Move On from the solo albums sorry Peter you weren’t represented that night. Also of course Black Diamond with the huge drum riser….and pyro lights smoke man talk about a mind blower from a kid who had posters on the wall!

    Thanks Mom&Dad…..

    Also it was advertised that Judas Priest was gonna be the opening act…but they cancelled and were replaced by a young Johnny Cougar who royally was booed from the get go! The only cheer that was mustered for him was when he announced his final song. But don’t feel bad for him three yrs later in 1982 out came Hurts So Good and Jack and Diane and I’m sure playing Duluth that night back in October of 79 did not register……

    There ya have it……now Everyone has seen it…
    Thanks again!
