Music Monday: Coheed’s Eraser

For those of sensitive ear, this song does have a bit of language. My least favorite Coheed album is, by far, their newest. But this particular song is quite good. The lyrics below are particularly awesome: Turn the clocks back to the way things were I never wanted to be this me Erase, eraser Show …

Music Monday: Tear in My Heart

This is a pretty great song. It’s essentially about how the lead singer found wholeness with his wife. She’s the “tear in my heart” sounds bad, but what he means is “my heart is my armor, she’s the tear in my heart, she’s a carver, she’s a butcher with a smile.” I think he means …

Michael Calfan: Resurrection

One of my students told me that this song would be sure to get me pumped up for morning visits to the gym. Results may vary, but I listened to it when I dead lifted 325 Friday. But I often turn my music off for heavy lifts to make sure my focus is on form. …

This is a really fun song by Muse. I don’t remember anything else from this album. Maybe I’ll listen to it today. But enjoy.

Music Monday: Dark Necessities

Music Monday: Anarchy Road

One of my favorite things is 80s style synth pop. About a year or so ago I discovered Carpenter Brut. I really like their music. One of their recent songs, Anarchy Road, is about an awful post-prosperity future for western civilization. The music video below is just clips from the recent Judge Dredd film, but …

Twenty-One Pilots and Your Soul

Being a millennial can be rough. I don’t typically care about labels, as I find them restrictive, but categories of things clearly matter and being a millennial does predict certain traits. It’s a generation of people whose jobs have been gutted by stupid trade deals.1 Most of them were raised with self-esteem centered parenting styles …
