I did this song Tiger Driver '87 at work today. I wanted to make a song using a mandolin in it because I never have before and I really like the way this came out. Why does it have that title? Not sure.There are two songs this week because I forgot to post one last week. Click here for previous My Song Of The Week.
I did this song Jump Back over two shifts at work. It went through so many changes before I settled on the right level of drums and trying to figure out when to drop things, take others out because they were off by half a second, and editing the track to match with what I was doing. I used the song Panama by Van Halen which is one of my favorites from them. Click here for previous My Song Of The Week.

Last night Cam called and asked if I wanted to go see a movie. Of course I said yes and asked what she had in mind. She said a movie at the Arclight called Moonlight. She said I could see what it was about but I always have fun going in blind with her so I just decided to see it not knowing what it was about, who was in it, or anything. I am glad I did because this ended up being an incredible film. There will be some spoilers but I think in this case and with this movie even if you know a bit more that you should still check it out where you can.

I did this song called Usurper because I wanted a sort of royal hip hop beat. I'll eventually ruin it by rapping over it. I keep staying within the parameters of 100 to 90 bpm because that is what I grew up with. Leave me alone! I like the way this one came out. I made about four songs last week so I'll see if I can keep that pace up this one. Click here to check out previous My Song Of The Week.
Its been a while since I have made an episode (Miss Jackie reminded me that people actually like this series) so I decided to play some fun songs from the late 70's and early 80's like Zapp & Roger Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing), The S.O.S. Band Just The Way You Like It, Chic Good Times, Chaka Khan What Cha Gonna Do For Me, Rose Royce Car Wash, and Peabo Bryson D.C Cab. Click here for previous Ross Radio Quickie Shows.

Westworld Pilot 2/10
Well that was disappointing. I am fully aware that this was the pilot or first episode of Westworld on HBO but I was really hoping for the show to be more interesting than it was. This show is about a place you can visit that is full of androids that act out a wild west town. You can go there and tour, bone some robots, wreck shit, or fight for the law. Some of them start to act weird and the folks behind the scenes attempt to fix this without the visitors finding out too much about it because that would be bad for business.

For all the people that keep on saying “The comic book movie/TV show bubble is gonna burst!” I feel bad for you because shows like Luke Cage are being made and better than most things on TV. If this was one of my The Review posts I would give it a 10/10 just so you know how I feel about this series. People are saying this is the best series Netflix has done while I would say this is one of the best pure seasons of a television series.
A fast version of describing this show (though there is so much more than this) is that a man is locked away in prison, gets experimented on, gains the ability of being super strong and bullet proof, and fights crime when it presents itself. Sounds cheesy as hell but trust me, its not. Well, it is but this series makes it work. In this 10 Reasons Why You Should Have Watched Luke Cage which will be full of spoilers I am gonna explain why you should have watched this and still have the chance unless you're an asshole that thinks superhero related entertainment is stupid.

So on my lunch break at work I started working on a beat at 106 bpm which is odd as hell for me and something I'd not done before. I wondered what songs had the same bpm and found The Bee Gees song Jive Talkin' and E40 Tell Me When To Go so I did those two to this. Click here for previous My Song Of The Week.
