A really good FREE~! poppy hard rock album to download? You know you want it…

Heard about this on a couple of podcasts I subscribe to, so I thought I’d pass it on to my Livejournal friends.

A rather talented chap by the name of Kevin Reeves is giving away his first album for free on his website. all you need to do is sign up for his mailing list and you’ll get the link in your inbox. Stylistically, it reminds me a lot of Queen, but a bit more…hmm…American. Production’s really good, songs are catchy, well constructed and well performed. For a freebie, it’s fabulous.

If anyone’s skeptical, keep an eye on my podcast – I’ll be doing a Kevin Reeves Artist Focus episode next, and I’ll spin three or four tracks off the album.

I’m the latest convert..

…to the Mac side. Posting this from my swanky new Macbook. 1.83Ghz Core 2 Duo, 512mb RAM, 60GB HD, the usual, all for £580 off the Apple refurb store. I’m pretty chuffed with it so far. 🙂

I’m not abandoning my PC, but being able to use different computers for different things will definitely help ease the load off my big black XP box.

However, later that day I hear about pro wrestler Chris Benoit, whose ring work I absolutely love, allegedly killing his wife and son before committing suicide. Gah.

Grah.

Why the hell can’t I get a job? Am I reaching beyond my grasp? I got a knockback from DFS today, I had an interview for a cashier job at Ladbrokes last week; the area manager chap said he’d phone on saturday to let me know one way or another, he never did. I’ve got a few applications in for some other stuff, but I’m not getting my hopes overly up. Hell, I even sent CVs to Sony Music and EMI. Meh, I dunno. We’ll see.

Rant over.
