In a recent interview with Marc Maron on WTF, Huey Lewis, from Huey Lewis and the News talked about pop music. Effectively, what this boiled down to was that he understood how tastes change overtime, however, he felt like his music was different because he didn’t have “naughty bits” in his music. What he
In the barrage of the summer movie season, it is good sometimes to get perspective on the themes. With kids out for the summer and teens home for college, there is room for high intensity movie mayhem and dude comedies. However, while in the past, this has not always left room for much creativity or
Sometimes, we all need someone to be more belligerent than we are to rant for us. So here, angry for no reason, is Michael Kraus, Michael? I wrote the below as a response, but forgot to send it! Not sure if its too late! ——————————————————— none of these are scored, just random lists of s**t………

In an effort to make sure you can hate us individually for our choices, I have decided to publish the lists submitted by my various contributors. The first comes from two high school student contributors who have a very complex and advanced music taste. Especially since, at their age, I listened to Backstreet Boys. In
Well, in traditional Dudeletter style, two days into a tiring and crappy week, we have finally posted the end of the year lists. We will have another list each day this week. First, we have our traditional song list. It came from compiling some our best music people and made one hell of a list!
In general, I love Christmas music. I had a roommate that claimed you could listen to it all yearlong. However, I guess I more classic than that. I love to make the season feel more seasonal. The music can be classic or new (as long as new does not ruin the classic.) I will be
I will say out right that there is something very odd about these mixes, about 12-22. There is something ridiculous. Clearly I wanted to like darker music, but don’t like know. I didn’t play the mixes much. They follow no rules, to the point that I created the rule to prevent this. Bouncing Around The

This is moving a tad forward in history a tad. This mix came out in the early 2010. What is interesting here is a mix of clearly a lot of things. You see here my love of pop music, my addiction to NPR All Songs Considered which brought me Mumford and Sons in October, my
