Mix Tapes

  • January 16, 2017

    Back on the 6th I promised I was going to devote a few minutes each day this year to sharing a favorite song of mine on the Swan Fungus Facebook page. So far I’ve managed to uphold my promise. 11 songs have been featured, and those are the tracks that will make up tonight’s mix tape. I don’t intend to pen a wrap-up each […]

    Fuck the Cowboys and the Patriots. As long as any other team wins this year I’m cool.

    Do you follow Swan Fungus on Instagram? You should. Why? Because when I leave town for much needed rest and relaxation you can follow my every step. Maybe not every step, but enough to predict what I will be writing about in the near future…or what I’m drinking right now. That said, I’ve been traveling for the past week or so between LA, Utah, Denver, and Vegas. Pictures and […]

    August is almost over. I’m still undecided as to whether or not that is a good thing or a bad thing. Am I looking forward to not running my A/C constantly when I’m at home? Yes. Is “summer” in Los Angeles sometimes hotter in September/October than in July/August? Absolutely. Am I looking forward to the army of ants that typically infiltrate my home this […]

    What good are weekends when you spend them holed up on your couch, hungover and sick, as the city slow crawls its way into another one of those random three-day heat waves? I thought freeing my schedule of work on Saturdays and Sundays was going to be a real game-changer for me. In some ways it has been. In other ways it means I drink […]

    I received a very nice care package from the East Coast tonight with some delicious libations. Plenty of Grimm Artisanal Ales including a couple freshly-canned IPAs should make this evening’s transition from work-week to weekend a bit more relaxing. I’ve got a couple horror movies queued up on the ol’ Netflix box, I stir-fried some chicken and vegetables, and so far Grimm’s Forcefield has been […]

  • Good news, everyone! I have exactly…10 days between this most recent string of busy days and nights, and the next string of busy days. My birthday celebration ended up lasting a full week. After a weekend with mom, and the preceding week in Vegas, there was the dinner with friends Wednesday, other meals and drinks with other friends on the rest of the nights, […]

  • April 11, 2016

    I always look forward to – and dread in equal measure – the month of April. Especially since moving to LA, it seems like each year I’m left with precious little time to myself. I like my me time. It allows me to concentrate on personal projects. Like this blog. Yet there is always a week or two or three in which I’m stretched thin at my […]

    Happy Major League Baseball Opening Night, everybody! I’d also like to extend an especially Happy OMLBN to reader Bennett “Lawdrone,” the resident Cubs fan around here. His team has been projected by pretty much every journalist covering the sport to win the World Series this year. Good luck, buddy! If the Mets don’t win it all this year, I hope it’s the team you support. It’d […]

  • March 27, 2016

    It’s been a busy week. I’m relishing this opportunity to sit on my couch and shut off my brain. Other than cooking dinner I don’t intend to move from this spot for a few hours. Aside from the usual work schedule it felt like I was running all over town every day. On Wednesday I was out over by LACMA for happy hour drinks and snacks. There […]
