    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?

This is how adulthood feels, huh? At 33 years old, it’s about time I experience it (or something like it). In lieu of a mix tape today I’m going to share tracks from what […]

    I’ve got about 15 minutes before this Titan record I’m spinning (Pilzmarmelade) ends, so I might as well take a couple minutes to catch y’all up on my life. So I started a new job last week. For lack of a better term it is a complete career change for me, so the first few days have been filled with varying amounts of dread and […]
