    “If You Have Time, Understand It’s of the Essence.” 1/11/18

    “Feels”  by Snoh Aalegra has the perfect title. The entire album is pretty awesome but “Time” struck something in me that influenced my first blog post of the year. I was once again, allowing time to prevent me from continuing to write. It’s a challenge to fight this every day. “Memories fade and I try to hold on. When I don’t know where I belong anymore. The sound of your voice was my all, but these words, they can’t heal you no more. Searching high and low for peace of mind, I feel I lost some peace of mind. And I wish…. that time…never mattered.” 1/11/18 @snohaalegra "Feels" Album has the…

    St. Beauty & Willow Smith – It Sounded like a Chant to Me 11/27/17

    September is when I first heard there would be a Jhene Aiko Trip Tour. Early October, I went ahead and purchased V.I.P tickets to see her at House of Blues. I was also excited to see Willow was opening up for her. When you hear V.I.P it’s likely for one to assume there’s a meet and greet involved. But that was not the purchase I made. My purchase came with early entrance and a package that included a Size Large Trip Shirt and poster. Early entrance meant that I didn’t have to stand in a longer line than some of her other fans. They were still general admission/standing only tickets.…

    “Summer Perspective”

    Frustrated by R.LUM.R “Here I go talking ’bout the same thing; in and out as quick as you can fade away. It don’t matter what I say if you want me to chain you to the sky, oh my. You give me your kaleidoscope in monochrome. So unlike the way you color me at home. Some days it’s so vivid. But mostly I would rather be blind.” He also continues to mention throughout the song: “It never seems like you’re the one that has to choose.” R.LUM.R’s speaking about pursuing his career in music and everything else in his life that’s keeping him from it or causes him to feel…

    “I used to be jealous of Aaron Afflalo. He was the one to follow. He was the only leader foreseeing brighter tomorrows.”

    I often find myself reminiscing about the best times of my life when I go through the worst. I write down the pros and cons so I don’t make it a habit of forgetting when times were worse/best. 2012, Nick and I first connected. It was probably the best part of the “new feels” you get.  You know…that fresh feeling when you first start dating someone. You’re always anxious and floating because you’re unable to predict what the next part of your life will be like. No one can really bring you down, because everything feels perfect. Our initial conversation consisted of music. Days later, the core of our conversation consisted of music, books, film & just art period.…

    Austin City Limits

    ACL 2017 was amazing! Each year, just gets better. If you’ve never attended a festival, you may not realize how much work it is to make the best of your experience. Booking rentals, hotels, purchasing tickets, finding the line-up, and performance dates/times is just the entry work. Once you actually make it to the city, you’re plowing through traffic just to make it to a bus and walk multiple miles to the festival. Even if you choose not to take the bus and drive to it- there isn’t much difference. Fall weather should make this easier to enjoy but not when you live in Texas. It was still close to…
