Hi folks!

I know, I know. We are strangers now. It feels like forever, it has been forever, and you forgot how it felt to be with Good Music, Bad Math. All understandable. I will, however, drop this little news piece on you. I AM REMIXING THIS SHIT!

I think it's time to blow up this blog place, salvage the remnants, and start from scratch. I have enjoyed having this blog, and I have definitely learned from the people that sent me music to review and folks who took the time to comment on my posts. Many thanks to them. But somewhere in the design of the blog, the topics got jumbled and mixed up beyond my liking. First off, I meant to write a music and math blog. Only one half of that formula got implemented and I was often left thinking, "Man I really should write something mathy". Next, I started to inject more and more of my opinion, life experiences, and random crap into the posts. This is good, but again, I don't like the organization and tagging of my posts.

This lead me to the discussion; Scrap? Or reorganize? I came to the conclusion that reorganization would take much longer and be less productive in the long run. Good Music, Bad Math was great as a beginner blog, something to learn the ropes on but I don't think it makes for a quality constantly-updated blog. NOT using that logic as an excuse for my absentee blogging (many many apologies *bows head*), but rather I think that I need another format, something fresh. So I have decided that I need to reorganize my thoughts and make a new blog which most likely will be on Tumblr.

The new blog will, of course, feature my recommendations, reviews, and opinions on the music of today, tomorrow, and yesterday. It will also feature life/opinion pieces that will (hopefully) be witty and insightful. I will update this post with the new address so you all can pop over to my new place and say hi. Bring a homewarming gift...not saying that you should bring some rum, but I'm not not saying that.

This blog, Good Music Bad Math, has been an amazing experience. It has lead me to make many new blogging friends, learn so much about writing and content quality, and forced me to actually think about the way I communicate my thoughts and opinions to the general public. I published 37 posts on here (ONLY 37?!?! Damn...) but it has felt like so much more. I raise my beer to you GMBM, may our partnership always be remembered, and may our posts not used later by the paparazzi. Cheers.

Life Here Under a Rock

As I take a break from my studying for an exam tomorrow, I have decided to let you know something that is not-so-secret but I had yet to confess: yes, I do indeed live ignorant of the outside world. Given the amount class, work, and napping that I am extremely inclined to do, it is not hard to let a few current events here and there go by. But damn it, I am living on a college campus so at least I should be up to date with the nonsensical things like the latest YouTube clip or the most recent reality TV hit. Nope, not even.

Earlier this week, I read this article on the school newspaper website. It caught my eye since I sometimes debate with other music folk about the artistic validity of a one-hit wonder (a topic that is a much longer post for another time). What is important to note are the following thoughts that popped into my head while reading:

I shouldn't be here right now. Yes, this is still my blog and yes I am alive, thanks for asking. I only have a limited amount of time before the Study Demons catch up and force me back into hiding. If you are wondering why I personified my work load, fuck that and go with it for the time being. 

The main reasons I have popped out of my seclusion are a) to answer some random-ass questions left to me by a fellow blogger, the crazy and always interesting Erin from The Post Modern Talko, and to finally review several artists and albums on my blog post queue.

Back In Black

I'm back.
AC/DC knows what I am talking about. 

Miss me?
I'll let you catch your breath in the clear state of shock that you may be experiencing right now. 

So here we are again.  I know, I know, this blog has been lonely and desolate for the past X amount of months. I refuse to define what X equals but I think we all know that it has been a significant amount of time. What has been up with me? School. Of course you knew that. When is it any different?

Gavin DeGraw - Sweeter

Americana roots rocker Gavin DeGraw recently released his fourth studio album, Sweeter. My first thought at seeing this new album was; "finally". I have been eagerly awaiting a new "Chariot" or even better, another "I Don't Want to Be". Never mind that these songs were pre-2010, they still seem fresh and relevant as ever.

Kablam Shazam

One of the most obvious statements in today's day and age is this; I can not live without my phone. For all its freezing up issues and the fact that the battery lasts only a pathetic 5 hours, my IPhone 3G still holds a special place in my heart. I get lost? IPhone. Check if I have class? IPhone. Twitter when I get bored in said class? Freakin' IPhone.

Now when you are a music addict such as I, finding new songs that catch your attention is the aural equivalent of getting Aunt Bertha's birthday present 3 months early, and in cash. But when you fail to find someone to tell you who this hot new artist is or what the name of the track might be, the crushing blow of ignorance is that much heavier. Enter Shazam.

Leap Year - Hoodie Allen (Short Version)

(The full review is a bit long and heavy to read through, so I did a short version for you that want to get straight to the music)

Hoodie Allen is an up-and-coming MC from New York City with a taste for 90's beats, a chill flow, and a remarkable work ethic. He released the 11 track Pep Rally Mixtape just a mere 10 months ago and he is not done yet. On Tuesday, at 12:00pm EST, the new album Leap Year was released for free download on his personal website
