Definitely Alive

Did you get to watch Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Festival on Twitch? Maybe you had the pleasure of attending. (Lucky you!) Well, I did and let me tell you… I wish I could have seen Madeon on the stream because it would have bolstered an already packed lineup. And those that are going on Day […]

how much longer must we tolerate mass culture

So, I’m more than a little late on this. Let me tell you why, because you might have the same reservations. First, I have a thing against the critical tendency for “Post” this or that. So, she was involved with Red Sparrowes and I’m not into that, at all. Basically, I already have enough of […]

Social Uppercut

DISCLAIMER: This post is discusses mental health issues and substance abuses. This post features vulgar language. I have been an egotistical prick. I have been the “too smart for their own good” punk ass kid who read Plato, Machiavelli, and Sun Tzu. I used my newly acquired vocabulary and philosophical reasoning to disarm others in […]

Movie Motorbreath

Getting the feel of writing again means I’m gonna have to figure out the triage on what to fit into the structure of my posts and what not to. But given that I am writing about some of my favorite movies of all time where I have a plethora of feelings and thoughts about, y’all […]

1000 Times Jeff

I’m what you might call “goth by marriage.” I believe Rob Sheffield said the same thing once on a radio special he hosted on Sirius, and I know the feeling. Back when I met my wife many years ago, the first thing I knew about her was that she loved The Cure. And in turn, […]

“Canada, you are in the midst of an Indigenous renaissance. Are you ready to hear the truths that need to be told? Are you ready to see the things that need to be seen?” With this proclamation — part challenge, part whoop of joy — musician Jeremy Dutcher accepted the 2018 Polaris Prize for his […]

An Unexpected Journey

Beginning to fade back into doubt and self-loathe, seeing people around me putting their heart and soul into something each of them are passionate in fills me with happiness at their success yet empties me even further, anger-filled at why at 24, i’m still unable to find any strong direction or motivation in life. They […]

So here’s me laying on stage, burning money while people watch in disgust. Photo by: Fallin Starr Photography #egrizzlyshow #felipepupo #think #streetart #punk […]

In the 1980’s an Israeli physicist named Eliyahu Goldratt shifted his attention to business. The most well known result of his efforts and studies was the Theory of Constraints (TOC). TOC originated in manufacturing, where it consistently resulted in production and profits that were previously considered unimaginable, impossible. However, it quickly spread to other businesses.

Bruit de fond

À quoi ressemble le rock en 2019? Est-ce qu’il se meurt à petit feu grillé par les cendres de la nouvelle génération qui privilégie souvent une musique artificielle axée davantage sur le contenant que le contenu?

Roses in the Rubble

Last Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day here in America. Although my precious Papa passed a few years ago, the legacy of his love continues to shine brightly in my heart and life (as shared in last year’s post: Fatherless on Father’s Day.) Being fatherless on Father’s Day is hard, but being fatherless every day is […]

My Secret Universe

When they first announced the lineup to Kaaboo I thought “meh, it isn’t really that good”. But I wanted to go anyway simply because I love going to festivals. That’s it. Kaaboo is something that every San Diegan goes to, and I wanted to be a part of that this year. This would be the […]
