Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff by Michael Nesmith – Nerfed Llamas Review

Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff by Michael Nesmith – Nerfed Llamas Review It is no secret that I am a fan of Michael Nesmith’s artistic endeavors. On this blog alone I have reviewed Tape Heads (a comedic feature film with John Cusack & Tim Robbins that Nesmith produced) and I have highlighted 30 of Papa Nez’s best tracks spanning the majority of his music performing career. Bottom line: I love me some Nez. As a mere mortal of 40 years of age, my appreciation for Nesmith came directly from watching…

2016 Year in Review by Nerfed Llamas #BestOfList #Obligatory

As was done in 2015, so shall an obligatory list of the stuff that I loved exist for the year of our Lord twenty sixteen. Normally I might pad out this opening paragraph with clever little lines about how this was a year like any other that was mostly OK. Grass was still green, the sky was still blue, and water was still wet… ya’ know, stupid pap like that, but let’s be honest: 2016 sucked. It sucked hard and for a variety of different reasons for a lot of…

Let’s Celebrate #GlobalJamesBondDay By Ranking All The Bond Songs! @007

Let’s Celebrate Global James Bond Day By Ranking All The Bond Songs! October 5th has been Global James Bond Day since 2012. In that time, it has been customary for the production team behind the 007 films to release the theme song for the next Bond flick, starting with Adele’s Skyfall. Being as the latest Bond film has not started filming yet and as such there will be no new theme song unveiled this year, I thought it might be a good bit of fun to rank the Bond songs in…

Essential Listening: Christopher Anton #payitforward @Chris_Anton

Essential Listening: Synthpop Christian, Christopher Anton! Reach Out And Touch Faith! For the entire month of June I am “paying it forward” to a handful of creatives that I believe truly deserve some recognition. I’ve covered a lot of different acts, primarily rock artists, and one awesome country band. Now it’s time to get your feet moving with some hard hitting dance beats! Bringing this week of musically themed celebrations to a close, I felt that it would feel good to end on an upbeat and inspirational note. Christopher Anton…

Essential Listening: Amanda Palmer #payitforward @amandapalmer

Essential Listening: Cabaret Rock Star, Amanda Palmer! A True Renaissance Woman Capable of Just About Everything! All month long I’m paying it forward to a small select group of folks that I feel could use a signal boost (for the blog schedule this month, click here). Last week I went local, covering the creative accomplishments of a handful of my friends. Both Craig Kotfas and Rody Hillman have recorded full length albums for purchase (you can read their articles here and here, respectively), and Bobby Baham has filmed and released…

Ten Terrific Tunes for Tuesday – Vol. 5 #Halloween #TTTT

Ten Terrific Tunes for Tuesday – Vol. 5 #Halloween #TTTT You had to figure that I’d put a Halloween mix out there, and boy howdy is this one a doozy. Old and new intertwined, with a few familiar cuts and a few obscure diamonds in the rough. I have never really gotten heavily involved in Halloween. Whether it be dressing up in a fancy costume or going to big Halloween parties, I have done so quite minimally over the last 38 years. I do, however; love a bit of macabre…
