  • In which I detail the minutiae of the last eight days of my life. Every. Single. Boring. Detail. Consider yourself warned.

    Yes. I know. I’m handling things differently this time than I did last time. In 2011 I refused to use this space for self-reflection. I penned a post about how it felt to shoot a gun in a time of strife, then feigned normalcy. After two months I wrote “Happy Foot / Sad Foot,” and admitted feeling good for the first time since my world was turned upside down. Aside from two brief journeys inward I kept […]

    Tonight I am haunted by thoughts. Little thoughts. The kind we sometimes call trifles because we are incapable of grasping their gravity. For years I let a routine of mine born of warmth and love masquerade as a mundane task. Why? I don’t know. I could write for hours on how my brain differentiates between significance and insignificance. That would not be a fun read. […]

    I gave myself ten days.

    No matter how old you are, no matter how much life you have lived, no matter how many soaring highs and crushing lows you have experienced, and no matter how hard you have tried to make yourself a better, more complete, more lovable person…it never makes having your heart ripped out of your chest any less painful. I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in […]

    It’s Friday night and I just returned home from work after a long and exhausting week. I’ve opened a bottle of beer that I’ve been sitting on for about 18 months (this guy here) and trying to figure out if I have plans tonight or not…

    I’ve just completed the first draft of my Top 100 Albums of 2016 list. I’m hoping this year to have the whole thing posted before New Year’s Eve. I think last year I clicked “Publish” as I was hailing a cab. Each year I consider trying to finish the list earlier, but it never happens. This year if all goes as planned it’ll be finished by […]

    I was shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Leonard Cohen earlier this week. You don’t have to look far into the annals of this website to see just how much adoration and respect I had for him. I’m hard pressed to think of another writer or musician who has had more of an impact/influence on my own artistic ventures than Cohen. Back […]

    I briefly forgot today’s date as I was uploading the files for today’s mix tape. When I realized it is almost October my thoughts shifted to my Top 100 Albums of 2016 list. I’m way behind on discovering new music. I’m trying (in vain) to flex some hip, fresh social media muscle with a weekly “Bandcamp Thursday” campaign on Facebook. I think I’ve forgotten to post new discoveries […]

    I anticipated a few new blog posts as I was relegated to my couch for 48 hours this weekend while I worked an event remotely. Alas, fate conspired to crush my dreams. The weird private-press folk record I found recently with the “slight warp not affecting play” turned out to be more warped than I thought. It had a pretty severe warble to it that ruined the […]
