Friday Favorites [04]

Friday Favorites GLOW

Believe it or not, I’ve actually managed to listen to things that aren’t on The Life of Pablo since its release a few weeks ago. Granted, I still spend most nights crying over Sia and Vic Mensa’s absence on “Wolves”, but you’re probably not interested in hearing about that, so……..     Corinne Bailey Rae is back, and she came bearing a great visual for the equally great track, “Been To The Moon”. It was beginning to feel as if she would never…

Millennial

Confession: I’m pretty bad at watching TV. My life is a constant cycle of people telling me about shows that I should watch, and me dishonestly telling them that I’ll watch the shows. At this point, most of my friends know what the deal is, and have since stopped trying to convince me to watch things, but every once in a while, I encounter a person with a suggestion that I don’t have the heart to shut down. And since…

Friday Favorites [03]

  I feel like I’ve said this a thousand times already, but 2015 has been really dope as far as new music is concerned. Granted, Rihanna and Kanye are still working on albums that will seemingly never see the light of day, but even with all of that, I’ve still been enjoying all of the new tunes that I’ve been discovering. I’ve had “Swords” on repeat since M.I.A. dropped it last week, and I’ve also grown particularly fond of the…

  Before anyone points it out, yes, that’s a Weeknd track on the playlist. I still can’t stand most of his music, but when you throw an obvious MJ groove on a track, you’ve got my support. But anyway, I hope that these tracks make your holiday weekend much better, and if I do what I’m supposed to do, then I’ll probably see you guys next week with a post or two. Have fun. Be safe. Talk to you guys later.  …

Food Truck Friday

“How have you never been to Food Truck Friday before?” I heard that question at least five times last week when I went to South End for their weekly food truck rally. Yes, I’ve lived in Charlotte for 9 years, but I happen to live about 30-40 minutes away from all of the good stuff, so when it comes to Uptown gatherings, I usually make up a reasonable excuse for why I can’t go. Last Friday, however, I decided to finally check…

Record Haul: Attempt #1

May 26, 2015

*Be sure to press the arrows on the sides of the photos to navigate through them.* I feel like I should say this right off the bat: I don’t actually own a record player. It’s one of the items on my ever-growing “to buy” list, and in my mind, if I buy enough records, then my hand will eventually be forced, and I’ll purchase one. So the other week after watching Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One of Tuxedo do their own…

Rant: On Friendly Duties

May 5, 2014

I like to think of myself as a pretty good friend. I’m fairly easy to get along with, I’ll be there for you when you need it, and I don’t require an obscene amount of time or attention-I’m basically like a cat, but with less hair, and a slightly warmer demeanor. I’ll do all of my friendly duties to the best of my ability, and should you respect me by reciprocating this, then we’ll do pretty well together. But there’s…

Rave: I’m Hooked on Medium

If I had to pick the best writing advice that I’ve ever received, I would have to go with the saying, “if you want to get better at writing, then you have to read more”. Truthfully, I have no idea where this quote originated from, as I’ve heard it paraphrased a million different ways by a million different people, but the essence of it is always the same, no matter how you phrase it. Not only does reading help beef…
