    By now you’ve likely seen that list circulating of the “100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time” as published by an irrelevant pop culture magazine struggling to stay relevant. I won’t link to it. I won’t cite the source. I’ll just say that it’s my belief lists such as this are produced only to keep your sad brand alive, and to generate cheap impressions to […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
