The Danny Elfman MasterClass: Is It Worth The Money?

A Review of Danny Elfman MasterClass Review

If you're a regular here, you know I'm a big fan of MasterClass. So far I've done Christina Aguilera, Reba McEntire and Deadmau5. I wanted to try a different genre this time, and I love The Simpsons, so Danny Elfman seemed like a decent choice. This is the first of a four-part series, so please subscribe to stay updated on the course! Please note: MasterClass is an affiliate, which mea[...]

Subliminal Messages in Songs: Do They Work for Mind Control? (No)

Subliminal Messages in Music

Subliminal messages and the conspiracies behind them have been around forever. If you want to get a conversation going, subliminal messages are a great starter.

I strive to be honest here, so I'm just going to say it: I think the concept of mind control using subliminal messaging is batshit. That being sa[...]

Sagittarius star sign

Happy birthday, Sagittarius friends! I have a complete list of every Sagittarius musician here, and I wanted to expand on that to discuss what what that really means.  Some people don’t believe in zodiac signs at all, while some people believe every bit of it. I feel like I fall somewhere in the middle, and most people probably do as well. There are SO many factors that can[...]

The Scorpio Musician: How Your Zodiac Sign Affects Your Music

Scorpio star sign

I have a large post listing every Scorpio musician, and I want to expand on that and talk about Scorpios more in detail.  This is my obligatory “you may not relate to this and that’s okay” speech, but there are many things that can determine your personality.

The Virgo Musician: How Your Zodiac Sign Affects Your Music

Virgo Constellation

IT'S VIRGO SEASON - MY SEASON! All my Virgos, join me as we twirl around in falling leaves while it's still relatively warm out. This post is likely to be biased, but I promise to be as fair as possible. I'm well aware of my (many) flaws and will definitely include those, but I'm also aware of the fact that some (or most) of this is my personality, and not my birthday. On that note, I[...]

The Leo Musician: How Your Zodiac Sign Affects Your Music

Leo Constellation

We are now in Leo, which runs from July 23 through August 22. This fire sign is represented by the Lion. In the United States, we're in the hottest parts of summer (which can range from roughly 30-300 degrees depending on where you live). Before we jump into this, I just want to say that this is for entertainment purposes only. You might not believe that horoscopes are real, and that'[...]

The Cancer Musician: How Your Zodiac Sign Affects Your Music

Cancer constellation

Cancer season runs from approximately June 21st through July 22nd. This has always been one of my favorite times of year, because growing up in Michigan this was the only time of year it would be warmer than 60 degrees. Before we get into this, I just need to say that this is for entertainment purposes only. I do these for fun and make no claims or predictions about how your music car[...]

We are now in Gemini, which is one of my favorite times of the year. If you're in the Northern hemisphere, we're warming up and days are getting brighter and longer. Both of my parents and my nephew are Geminis, so this is also a time of parties and spending a ton of money on gifts. Before we get started, I need to do my obligatory "this may not apply to you" speech. There are a ton o[...]
