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.
