Holiday Music: This Time of Year, by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones

It gets me, and never lets me, act like I don’t care.
This time of year is my, favorite time of year
‘Cause all of us are here together

Music: Because I’m Me, by The Avalanches

Here’s a fun little tune from The Avalanches, who seem to have made a career out of fun tunes.

Music: Wow, by Beck

The track “Wow” isn’t about New York City, but it sums up the entirety of my experience there. WOW.

Music: I Ain’t The One, by Spoon

“It’s never been more important that we stick together & take care of each other” – Arcade Fire

Music: Changes, by Charles Bradley

Maybe my tastes have evolved to abhor fast food music. Maybe I’m just getting older. Maybe I just love that Bradley is a bit of throwback.

Holiday Music: A Great Big Sled, by The Killers

Five Minutes on The Election, Running, and Bon Iver

I haven’t written in two weeks, and I’m pretty rusty. To get back on track I’m falling back on one of my old “writer’s block” busting tricks. I’m setting a timer and writing for 5 minutes on a topic, cleaning it up a bit and posting it. So here goes… Five Minutes on The Election: […]
