Music CDs going the way of the Dinosaur in 2012

The music industry is now reporting that Major Labels are planning to discontinue music CDs as early as sometime next year. I still remember the first CD single I ever released to radio, and back then I never thought that format would go away. But just like 8-tracks, vinyl records and cassette tapes they one day get replaced by the next technology.

Are you "All In" for your relationship?

Ask yourself "Are you all in for your relationship or are you just taking what you have for granted?". Take it from someone who has "been there" and "done that", you really should take the time every day to show appreciation to your wife, husband or significant other. Life is just way too short and you'll never know just how amazing your relationship could be if you tried just a little bit harder. Be there for him or her, listen to them, love them for all that they are (faults and all, you know you have'em too :)). The more time and effort you spend working on your relationship the happier you will be in all areas of your life..I promise you!

I happened to catch Lifehouse's song "All In" on the radio this week and it just hit home in my heart and soul once again..check it out this great pop tune with a message we can all learn from:

Please feel free to leave your comments below..I'll moderate 3-4x a day and get them posted. Have a great day and stop back in a few for our next update!

Yes I know all of us in the Northeast US got a winter snowstorm BEFORE Halloween but that's no excuse to start playing the Christmas Music early. Used to be our local station B101 in Philadelphia would start playing it right after Halloween but I guess enough people finally complained that they stopped. Now they are running a poll on their website where we get to tell them when we think Christmas music should start on the radio. My vote goes for no earlier than Thanksgiving...that way I can actually enjoy the holiday music DURING the season and not be totally sick of it two weeks before Christmas.

And now I see Justin Beiber already has a holiday song "Mistletoe" on the Top 40 Billboard chart and its only the beginning of November. Just goes to show you that some radio stations are already playing holiday music and that's scarier than a snowstorm before Halloween :)

X Factor renewed for 2nd Season in 2012

It was just announced today that X Factor was renewed for a second season to begin airing in the fall of 2012 (see full article here X Factor 2nd season. I have to say I was a big fan of watching Simon Cowell for much of his run on American Idol Run but I have yet to turn on X Factor for a single episode (and there have been 10). I'm not sure why I've lost interest but I'm curious to know if you guys have been watching the X Factor. Post some comments here and I'll review/publish as they come in (have to keep out the spammers :)).

Thanks all and have a great nite!
