I can’t recall another year from this decade that has been this consistently good, across the board, among all genres in music.

Hours earlier, I arrive at The Casbah in the worst shirt I could find. A Hawaiian button-up that appeared to have been hoisted off of Anthony Bourdain’s back in a 2008 episode of ‘No Reservations’.

The Sound of Silence

Why do I love silent films? It’s both a simple and a complex question. The simple answer is that they’re movies and I pretty much love every genre you can think of and then a few more.

High School Favorites: Jimmy Eat World’s ‘Bleed American’

Look, I want to write about the bands I loved in high school and what songs used to make me cry before I starting crying over real things, like paying my rent and disappointing my mother with my lack of realistic career goals.
