Carnival of Rock and Roll - August 2007

It was actually a pretty slow month for the Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll, but there were still some interesting posts to check out.

We had another two interesting posts from Sheena Metal over at Music Highway.

The Green-Eyed Monster - Are Your Friends Really Happy For Your Success?

And The Winner Is: Will Awards And Contests Lead To Bigger Things?

Both worth checking out.

Radio sent another look at the biography of Radiohead that seems to go a little more in depth in: BIOGRAPHY

TherapyDoc submitted a very personal post that seems at first to be non music related, but offers a little insight into how powerful music can be at recalling memories and stirring up emotions in: That Softness Gene

Marie Drennen from Diary of a Bad Buddist submitted another post that I at first thought was unrelated to music, but touches on some interesting ideas related to Guns N' Roses and also more indirectly, censorship etc, in : Bad Buddhist vs. The Fifth Precept

Jeremy over at Jeremy's Consumer Corner sent along another two interesting album reviews.

Kelly Clarkson - My December

And Plain White T's - Every Second Counts

Definitely worth checking out if you're interested on how those albums turned out.

Pointlessbanter from Jam band News, sent along a little insight into concert venues with: My Favorite Concert Venues- Number 4

And lastly Jon from Present Tense sent along a whole bunch of album reviews from a variety of artists in: Shotgun CD Reviews #33187001

And that was it this month... must have been a slow month for rock and roll, but still, as I said, there were definitely some interesting posts and some that were completely unexpected.
Keep up the good work everyone.

If you submitted your work to the carnival, but it wasn't chosen, don't fret. There aren't a lot of standards to be included except to be directly about music, but I don't publish blatant advertisements, personal attacks on artists, celebrity gossip, things off topic or things I can't read (sorry, english only). Also, I'd appreciate if you only submit some of your best works, not short, few word posts and try to keep multiple submissions within reason, meaning you can send two or three articles at most, but not like six... if you Spam the carnival with entries or with articles off topic you won't be included.

I still appreciate your contribution even if I didn't choose to include it and hope you won't hesitate to submit new work to next month's carnival.

The next carnival will run on September 1st 2007. More information, the carnival archives and a link to the submission form can be found here:
