Endless Loop: The Official Ironmen Rally Song

guidedbyvoicesI write about music a lot. That’s okay though…I really like music. But the majority of my past articles and columns have focused primarily on albums, short and long stretches of artistic cohesion or chaos, easily consumable in piecemeal nuggets, but more greatly appreciated as works in whole form.

Traditionally (at least for the last few months), Wednesday has been my day off from a week’s worth of work drudgery, my day to spend with my son, going to the park, playing with the dog, watching horror movies, reading comic books, and napping.  It’s a wonderful day.  Last Wednesday, I didn’t get to do any of those things…well, the boy did take a 30-minute power nap on me before we left the house…but the day was wonderful nonetheless.  Just a different kind of wonderful.  The find-a-record-you’ve-been-looking-for, friend-seeing, beer-swilling, see-a-band-you-thought-you’d-never-ever-see road trip kind of wonderful.
