Giving Tidal another shot

To say I enjoy music is a huge understatement. There is no other art that speaks to me so deeply in such a breadth of emotion. It’s more than just being greater than the sum of its parts: Whether instrumental or combined with lyrics, well done, music creates a whole other magnitude of impact. Music…

What I read this month

Things are still well from settled at the temporary apartment we’re staying in while our reno happens, but they’re getting there. I figure we’ll have everything perfectly squared away right before we need to pack up to move back home. With more down time these days, here’s what I was able to get read: ReadHell…

A new record broken

Oh, hi. I didn’t see you there. What am I up to, you ask? Nothing much, really. Still trying to get settled into the temporary apartment, still supporting and buying for/prepping meals for my wife and daughter as they’re still in full-time class mode for another month… oh, yeah, and breaking the 100,000 word count…

What I’m reading

I’m not a big self-help book reader. That said, there are times I come across something that could certainly be in that category that strikes a chord. Hell Yeah or No is one of those. Derek Sivers is a multi-pronged American writer, entrepreneur, musician, world traveller, and increasingly, advice guru. Hell Yeah or No is…

What I read this month

Not only is moving households one of life’s most stressful events, but it’s also not conducive to getting much read. Who has time to idly flip through books when there are backs to strain and joints to hyperextend and dust bunnies from hell–which of course multiply even faster than real bunnies–to contend with? And so…

Happy belated Pencil Day!

My friend, confidant, sometime tabletop game designing/spitballing partner, and all-around best bud told me earlier this week that the following day, March 30th (read also 30 March for the more internationally accustomed date writers among us), was Pencil Day. And like a clod, I let it pass without any fanfare. Typical. Suffice to say, I’ve…

What I read this month

I got more read than I expected to in March, given the (seemingly suddenly) quick, time-gobbling ramp-up to a major home reno and trying to find a place to live while that’s happening. Pro-tip: If you don’t want a metric ton of added stress in your life and days becoming weeks when you look around…

If nothing else, believe in art

I unfortunately can’t give credit for that fantastic quote I used as the title for this post–which I’d first seen in a photo of graffiti scrawled on a wall, and unable to find any stickers of it that I could just buy, drew a vibrant image for it myself that I glued… glued… onto the…

NFTs? Hard pass, thanks.

For those of you who don’t spend hours of your day staring at a screen, ostensibly trying to write but too often procrastinating and instead surfing the web like some people I could mention (*ahem*) the most recent hot topic you may not have heard about are NFTs. It’s whatnow? NFTs. Non-fungible tokens. It’s whatnow?…
