My baby girl is nearly a week old, and we are happy to tell everyone that her name is Zoe Jennifer Croft. She’s already strong, loud and beautiful, I’m going to go and buy a big stick for when she’s a teenager and there are boys nearby (you’ve all been warned. There’s me and enough uncles and cousins to make your day go very bad, very quickly)
I couldn’t be more proud of Jess for carrying and giving birth to this gorgeous baby girl - life will never be the same.

Some things I remember from 2013

My memory can be shocking for events, but great for utterly useless information. So, in no particular order;

  1. Mark left To The Lions (sad)
  2. Scott joined To The Lions (happy)
  3. Got a job in a guitar shop (happy)
  4. Went on holiday to Madeira (happy)
  5. Found out Jess was pregnant (very happy)
  6. Tony got quite ill (very sad)

Things for next year;

  1. Be a good father and boyfriend (is it still boyfriend in the 6th year)
  2. Fix the house up
  3. To The Lions

Pretty simple goals really. 

There’s probably a lot I’ve forgotten. Sorry…

them feels.

100% support what this lady had to say.

Oh my god, This. This needs to be reblogged

Insane that a country as supposedly modern as Russia can’t see what the rest of the world can.

(also, how is “them feels” an appropriate caption? Come on guys.

Mainstream Music Is Not In The Business Of Making People Think

Describing mainstream music as gum is a really apt metaphor. Good piece this’un

Bill Werde is the Editorial Director of Billboard, and he went off on an interesting Tweet tangest earlier this week about how he wishes mainstream music had more of a meaning and message than it often does. Nick Mango, founder of LimitedRun, wrote a response to Werde’s comments for a new Contributor Blog on POZ. You can read his thoughts on the topic below!

I must say, I’ve long wished for more mainstream-worthy music with more important messaging.

— Bill Werde (@bwerde)

Mainstream music is not in the business of making people think. There’s no money in thinking, because few people do it. Mainstream music is in the business of time: something so many people seem to have an excess of. Mainstream music takes time that people spend doing something monotonous and makes that time move faster. It’s like a DVR for your life. Back in the ’50s, when the home had a single TV with 4 channels, you really didn’t have too many choices to keep your mind occupied. You watched The Honeymooners, listened to music, went to a make-out party, or did your homework. The world was a simple place, and lives found meaning in simple things. Today we have a million TV stations on a million TVs. We have TVs in our pockets. We have Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. We have friends from other countries. We have a zillion different types of drugs. Every house has a video game console. Every kid has a cellphone and a car. Running is a billion dollar industry. RUNNING. You know what kids back in the day would say about that?

We have way too many things going on in our lives to learn something from music, and the world of mainstream music knows it. They give us what we want. We need something simple. We need something to snack on. We need something to hold us over until we get to the next important thing in our lives. Mainstream music is like a soundtrack for our daily routine. The soundtrack in movies is there to give a particular scene substance. To give it texture. To make us respect it. We use the daily routine soundtrack to enhance what life is boring us with. We use it to make data entry a little more bearable. We use it when we have no friends on the school bus. We use it to turn that train ride to work into a poetic montage of scenes from an independent film about struggle. When the words in songs meant something, the American dream was to own a home. But now, our expectations for life have completely changed. The American dream is to become a billionaire. This is why the lottery industry keeps growing, even when the economy turns to shit. Gratification is no longer a day away, like it was in the past. Now we can get gratification in seconds. There’s a Walmart in every city. There’s porn just a few keystrokes away. People don’t revolt by growing their hair long anymore. They revolt by taking MDMA and dancing until they’re zipped up in a bag. Something as restrained as words in a song has no affect on us anymore.

Nothing, literally nothing could make me laugh harder than this did.

WHY DID HE THINK THAT WAS HOW GUITARS WORKED

Because I spend all day every day with electric guitars, somehow this is fuck my life right over a barrel and chuck me out to dry funny.
