Disney’s Hollywood Studios Turns 30 – and Few Major Theme Parks Have Undergone So Many Massive Changes

You don’t have to go far online, whether on discussion forums, Disney Twitter (it’s a real thing, trust me), or the like, to find one of the oldest quotes from Walt Disney. It goes like this: “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination in the world.” Flowery second sentence aside, the basic notion that the theme parks of the Walt Disney Company wouldn’t exist in the 21st century as they did on their opening days makes sense. Technology evolves,...

Stagecoach 2019: Jason Aldean gives a strong finish to the 13th annual country fest

Singer-songwriter Jason Aldean has become a Stagecoach Country Music Festival staple. He performed at the very first fest back when it was a two-day affair in 2007. He came back in 2010 for an earlier daytime set and headlined for the first time in 2012. He headlined again in 2014 and, like his peer and Friday night headliner Luke Bryan, he has now headlined Stagecoach a total of three times. His sets are always strong, energetic, filled with all of his radio hits and he’s nothing if not consist...

Three of the Worst Super Bowls in History

The Super Bowl is the pinnacle of the American sporting calendar and attracts millions of fans around the world; some of which aren’t even interested in the NFL for the regular season but are seasoned viewers of the showpiece event of the year. That is the joy of the Super Bowl; it can attract a broader audience to the sport and attract more fans to follow the sport. However, sometimes the event fails to live up to the hype and leaves even the most seasoned of NFL fans close to bored. Here is ...

Trail Mix – Kevin Daniel

Don’t all singer-songwriters have roots in bluegrass, punk, ska, jazz, and acapella groups? Maybe not, but North Carolina’s Kevin Daniel surely does. With roots in classical music dating back to his early elementary years, Daniel has arrived at his guitar driven folk rock after adventuring across the musical landscape for the last twenty years. As “Pour Me A Drink” suggests, the end results have been well worth it. This latest single is a folky acoustic ode with some rock and roll brass,...

Soul Serenade: Rufus Thomas, “Walking the Dog”

“His music … brought a great deal of joy to the world, but his personality brought even more, conveying a message of grit, determination, indomitability, above all a bottomless appreciation for the human comedy that left little room for the drab or the dreary in his presence.” — Peter Guralnick As Dr. King once famously said, longevity has its place. And when it comes to a career in music, longevity is something that’s widely sought after but all to seldom experienced. We often celebrate the sin...

Did Technology Bring About The Death Of Good Music?

After new research was released suggesting that millennials prefer golden oldies to contemporary pop, Stephen Carlisle did some digging to determine if this was in fact accurate and, if so, what role technology may have played in the "decline" of music's quality. _____________________________ Guest post by Stephen Carlisle of NOVA Southeastern University This item from the website caught my eye last week.

Blizzard/Activision celebrates record revenues by laying off 800 employees

Blizzard/Activision posted $7.5b in net revenues for 2018, and announced that it would lay off 800 of the employees who made those revenues possible, but fear not! The last time the company did a mass layoff (600 people in 2012), it generously rehired those people as temps, doing the same jobs for less pay, with no security or benefits. The layoffs targeted the most precarious workers at the company: low-earning temps and contractors pulling long shifts in the hopes of getting hired on perm...
