Brent Billock's Tumblr

I'm Brent (@BrentBillock). I'm a muscian raising two kids in Cincinnati.

I lived in Chicago for a long time and my job doing internet marketing, design and development is still there, so I get back fairly often.

I also love motorcycles and books, and spend a little too much time paying attention to politics.

Heh. Common time is so…  common.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!’

Creepy but helpful

Apple must be trying to take a cue from Google Now. I see my iPhone has noticed what my routine is and offers helpful tips on the swipe-down notification screen.

It knows I work out every other morning about 10 miles west of my house: “Right now it would take about 15 minutes to get to Amberly.”

It’s noticed that I have rehearsal across the river on Thursday night: “Right now, it would take about 33 minutes to drive to Ft. Mitchell.”

It even sees the rejection emails my band is getting from the summer festivals: “Right now, it would take about 4 hours to bleed out in the tub.”

Seems like the feature may still need some tweaks.

I’ve been taunting my followers with tales of my adventures in rock n roll and both of you have been very supportive.
So here’s the first public output from the new opera-boy becomes rocker story. We’ve tracked a three-song demo. Despite my ridiculously inept attempts at sound engineering, you can still hear how talented my bandmates are.

Please give it a listen, and get on the mailing list so we can let you know when we’re playing, or when we release a recording with a real professional doing the mixing and mastering.

Tumblr Movie Recommendations

When people post about their favorite movies on Tumblr, the love they feel for these films is almost palpable. It makes you want to check them out immediately.

And, since most Tumblr users are from a generation that has never known the curse of “Be Kind, Rewind,” their favorite movies are almost always streaming on Netflix. 

So it’s a golden age of movie-watching, fueled by passionate recommendations from a congress of artsy, deep-feeling film lovers. Except for one insurmountable obstacle.

Approximately 0.2% of these posts actually contain the name of the movie in any way.

These are my friends! HONEYSPIDERS … they are pretty rock n roll

Sounds wicked. Let’s hear it for another great Cincinnati rock band.

I want to be Dave Grohl when I stop trying to grow up.

music for me is a very sexual thing. i feel sexually stimulated by minor chords, heavy bass, heavy music.
