INTERVIEWER (Director Steve McQueen): ….there’s really no amount of money [...]

December 31, 2013

Usually I just offer up my end of the year list as tribute to Listophilis, the ancient god of organizing stuff into lists, and possibly syphilis? Just throw that shit into the mouth of the disinterested volcano that is internet and sleep better that night. This year;  sure I’m doin’ all that but also – [...]

Burn Out, Fade Away; Summer Music ’13

September 14, 2013

Last post – when I came to think about it – turned out to be the first time I had ever posted a picture of myself on the internet. Ever. (Don’t get me wrong, other people had put pictures of me all over the place. Often tagging/alerting me, to be sure I see myself.) I’d [...]

Oh, It Burns..

September 12, 2013

“You can’t describe Burning Man…. not to someone who hasn’t been.” “You’re never gonna be able to articulate what it’s about, all the aspects that make it unique, how diverse the experience can be.” “If they’ve never been, they’re just gonna assume it’s like a Coachella or Bonnaroo… whatever fits their frame of reference.” “You’re [...]

They’re Pod People, I Tell Ya! Pod People!

December 29, 2012

I was so pleased with myself for this ‘playlist’ of podcasts I made for the guy who runs the local coffee shop. I couldn’t quite tell how much of it was the unsolicited gift bit/random act of gifting… or how oddly important it was that this dude I don’t know that well sees how smart [...]

Sometimes, I Surprise Myself

December 5, 2012

There’s nothing better than hearing a personalized music experience while driving. Something about the act of driving.
