Last Saturday, I was on my way back to Los Angeles from St. Louis (connecting in Phoenix). Normally, I sleep during flights. And while I was sure I would drift off on this particular flight, something kept me awake. I guess it started with free whiskey. A few minutes after I found my seat on […]
An opossum lives in the shrubs near my apartment building. Recently, he climbed up into the trees near my balcony on the second floor. I can only guess that he is calculating his entrance into my apartment, where he will promptly scare me until my bowels are vacant, then bite into the fleshiest part of […]
Catchy song. Clever video. Cool style. (I especially love Sophia Bush’s charming 60s dresses!) All in an homage to intense, chaotic relationships.
Today, my coworkers and I were talking about how the Harlem Shake has become an Internet meme–even though the 2013 version is not the real dance. So, out of curiosity, I asked them what the real Harlem Shake looked like, and they clued me in to this video from 2002. The kid rocks it. P. […]
This video from Aussie indie band Tame Impala is so mesmerizing that their song seems secondary, in comparison–even though they made the video to promote the latest single off of their new album Lonerism. In fact, the melody has nearly escaped me, yet the 5:37 of entrancing imagery remains. You can catch Tame Impala at […]

Slap on your tinfoil hat, drape yourself […]

Upon first listen, the track evoked images of a young man being chased through a dark alley, but knowing precisely which routes to take because the streets had been his playground since he could walk. This song grabbed me […]
A lot of people lost their jobs in 2012, myself included, and it really messed with my head. This was the first time I’d ever been unemployed. Los Angeles is an expensive city, but my goal was to stay here. So, the week after I got laid off, I emailed and called nearly everyone I […]
A bad-ass video for a bad-ass song. Best line: ‘You’re never gonna thrill me. But you can kiss my ass.’ [Side note: Yes, I said ‘ass’ way too much in these two sentences. So what?] Listen at a loud volume.
November is a time when leaves turn vibrant orange, the air is crisp and smells of crackling fires, and threadlike stubble starts to fill in the once-barren upper lips of men everywhere. Yes, I’m talking about Movember—the worldwide annual charity event that inspires men to grow their finest displays of moustachery in order to raise […]
