One More On Creating, Dropping The Angst, And Crying It Out(if you feel like it)

Hey all. I know, I know, there hasn’t been much over on this part of the interweb in regards to album reviews and just general spreading of the music love. I wouldn’t say that what I’m dealing with is writer’s block, or even disinterest. Maybe there’s been some malaise and some heavy-heartedness in regards to […]

Something’s Brewing

Can you feel it? Or is it just me? I don’t know, lately I’ve been feeling like something is changing, for the better. For me, anyways. Maybe it was getting those new glasses a few weeks ago. Or the fact I’ve got concerts lined up this year for the first time in quite some time. […]

You Do You(Or Whatever)

It’s Thursday night and I’m enjoying a couple pints and listening to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. It’s a brand new piece of vinyl that I procured just this afternoon. First Flight To Tokyo : The Lost 1961 Recordings to be precise. It’s stunning. I never really got into Art Blakey and the Jazz […]

Ritual

There’s certain rituals that I just cannot let go of. My brain is wired a certain way, and to deviate from these things in my life would cause complete mental havoc. Civilizations woudl crumble, lives would be forever changed, planets would tumble infinitely through space till they turned to space dust, and I’d be in […]

Chord Changes

I’ve been in a rut lately. I always identified as a musician, though in the roughest sense of the word. But it’s starting to not really feel like part of my identity. For the first time since I was 12-years old making music doesn’t feel like an integral part of me, and it’s really bumming […]

Balance Your Madness

At one point in my life I considered myself a serious songwriter. As serious as one could be working a full-time job, married, with three kids. Somehow, with all of that responsibility I still found time to write and record songs on the regular. If inspiration struck I could sit down at the out-of-tune piano […]

A Few Words From Management

The new year always starts pretty slow for me. I don’t know what it is, but I find myself lacking in words to type, stories to tell, and music to discuss. It could be that those final couple weeks of December are a huge push to discuss the previous year’s triumphs and put them in […]

Phantom Limb

I remember as far back as being 5 or 6 years old that I wanted to find something that was my own. Something special; a skill or talent through which I could express myself. Take that storm of ideas, emotions, loves, and fears that swirled in my head and heart and put them out into […]

Different Name, Same Schmuck

If you happen by here often(or semi-often), then you’ll notice something is different about the place. Sure, the WordPress theme looks different(that may change again), but where is the affable Jhubner73.com, you’re probably wondering?(if you’re not, then you should pay closer attention.) Well, I have indeed re-christened the Good Ship Blog Spot. Jhubner73.com has been […]
