    My favorite albums of September 2022

    It’s that time of the month when I share my favorite albums and other musical discoveries from the last 30ish days. My September listening was dominated by jazz, guitars, and beats was and generally instrumental in nature. Man, there were some real gems this month. Play some music below and judge for yourself.

  • The dark side of the moon

    The dark side of the moon

    The other day I was thinking about the moon (because I love thinking about space) and did the most sensible thing which is to download this app called My Moon Phase. After looking at it for a minute I was curious about what exactly the age of the moon meant. I then became totally fascinated […]

    Peanut Rãyu aka the best condiment ever

    I saw this jar of White Mausu’s Peanut Rãyu on the shelf of my local shop (Locavore) and took a chance. I love chillis and peanuts and asian food but that wasn’t it exactly. Something about it called to me, and I answered.

    On The Miseducation of Eunice Waymon and supporting good things

    Right now, I’m listening to the crazy good Nina Simone & Lauryn Hill mash-up album, The Miseducation of Eunice Waymon, from Amerigo Gazaway.

    My favorite albums of August 2022

    I love finding new music and I hope this list helps you discover something new too. For me, a “good music” month means new material from my favorite artists and new (to me) artists in equal measure. By that definition, August was a poster child. Here are my favorite albums and other musical discoveries from […]

  • Just a human being

    Just a human being

    “Here I am as a human being, how can I express myself totally and completely? […] It’s a process of continual growth.” I recently learned about an interview with Bruce Lee from 1971 known as “the lost interview”. It’s totally captivating. I highly recommend spending 25 mins to watch it.
