Here we are… 2020. Yay?

We did it everyone. We made it. 2020 is here finally and we all finally get jetpacks. Right? Nah. It’s still the same thing. Same vibe. A little more angry. A little more complacent. A bit fatter. Still no new writing from me I see. Cool cool cool… I’m going to attempt to change things […]

7 Month Check-In

Yep. It’s been seven months since I last wrote on this blog. What a total and complete cluster. I see that back in January I promised a review a month, to keep up with the original theme of this site. Music-centric. As you can see, I’m killing it (reallynotreally). I need to reflect on if […]

The End of 2016

There’s been a ┬álot of bad press regarding 2016, especially as we prepare to close out the year. Actually, the negativity┬áhas been pretty nonstop for most of the year, with it seeming to culminate into various lists and “Top Ten” articles throughout the interwebs in these final weeks. I get it. You know, I really […]

As we fast approach the holiday season, I cannot help but be amazed. Amazed at the direction the country/world has taken in the last several months. Amazed at the vitriol. Amazed at the hate. Amazed that, despite the world spiraling in directions we all never thought possible, my outlook is positive. Weird right? Not really, […]

Talking Slacker Jazz

Last weekend I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite artists: Mike Doughty. Who? You might ask… And if you do, please move along. You’re not wanted here. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Are they gone? Good… Lets get on with it. Anyway, as you all may or may not know, H and I […]
