The man who could arguably be called the king of Country Music as that he is only the highest selling male soloist of all time, is back with his first album in more than a decade.
While the album “Man Against Machine” is pretty good, there is one song that really stands out. In a world of hurt and suffering, indifference and intolerance, the song “People Loving People” is a welcome message in typical Garth fashion.
Please check out the video of the live performance from the most recent AMA Awards.
As a creative individual, I am often impressed with the ingenuity involved in the creation of mobile applications. this is especially true of those that are also very practical in nature.

I recently got this young lay’s debut album (a protege of the multi-talented Justin Timberlake) and while it was OK, I can assure you this girl has pipes. Just to show you, I thought I’d include a few of her Youtube videos. After all, that was the way she was discovered if you will.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

As you may know, a good bit of my work as a photographer focuses on models that seem to fall into one of the wider categories of three major subculture. These would be Goth, punk and emo. Well recently, I decided to do a photo shoot with an amazing young lady that also fits into an alternative culture in that she is an avid raver. That being the case, I’ll include that into the mix as well.

When a gifted artist can take his or her vision from behind the camera lens to bring it to fruition on paper, canvas or even metal, it really is something special. That being said, I’d like to take a moment to rave about the amazing artwork of someone near and dear to my heart, my brother.
Based out of beautiful and scenic North Carolina, he’s captured images from all over the country with a specialty in nature, landscape and wildlife images.

Taylor Swift has always been a mature young woman. But, with the release of her latest album “1989” it is clear that the young lady is growing up into a full fledged woman. This is reflected in her artistic interest in venturing into other music genres, namely pop.
While most of her albums have had some crossover appeal, she acknowledged that she was intentionally trying to branch out with this one. Mission accomplished.
It is likely that some of her fans may have some trouble digesting this experimental sound. But at the same time, it is likely that she will gain some new fans as well.
Personally, my favorite songs on the album are probably “I Wish You Would,” “Blank Space,” “Wildest Dreams” and “This Love.”
The least impressive tracks are probably the first single “Shake It Off” and “Welcome to New York” and “I Know Places.”
The remaining songs are in the average to slightly above category.
Overall I’d give it a 3.5.
If you are a true Taylor fan, I’d certainly recommend this album.
