I am struggling with a bit of a problem.
You see, I built this music blog/website all by my little lonesome. Yea, you guessed it, trial and error, lots of errors. Over time, I have become more satisfied with the result of my hard work. I am very thankful for all of my many followers and loyal readers, but when I actually began, I was just out to have fun, listen to music, and write a bit here and there. Now, this little blog has become something bigger than I ever, ever imagined.
So, you’re probably thinking, “What’s the problem?” Well, because I just simply jumped into the music, I never really completely thought through the name of my website. I dove in and began listening and writing. The title was a quick, snap decision. So, now when I talk to a band, a new music friend, or a PR company and tell them my name, I have to admit, I am a little embarrassed. They give me a curious look and I immediately turn a rosy shade of red and quickly change the subject.
we all know that saying something is cool, is really uncool.
Therefore immersed in cool music is a bit on the lame side of blog names. I know it…you know it…we can all pretty much agree on it. But now after three years of blogging and sharing music, I have 472 posts and @ 40,000 views. How do I successfully change my blog name? I am paralyzed thinking about it.
So, as I was contemplating this difficult dilemma, I came across this cool song. Whoops, I mean an amazing, hip song with a side of funny. It may be my answer, where sometimes cool, can actually be pretty cool.
From what I was able to gather, Zack Villere is from Louisiana and originally put out music under the name froyo ma. He has a new album, Little World, coming out this month. If it is anything like this song, it will be the bomb. I just can’t resist the R&B vibe and the slow jam of the song, “Cool”.
Being insecure, and worrying about your cool factor are feelings we all go through from time to time. Zack captures this perfectly through his dance moves in front of the mirror and standing awkwardly in a park in his boxers. Feeling exposed, vulnerable, and possibly learning how uncool you are is the worst. Despite the video’s scenes of geekiness, I have to give respect to the warmth of his soul-vibe vocals and the catchy tune he creates.
And if the music isn’t cool enough, I want to know about his artwork. Awesome.
