I’m reading WAY too much political news lately on Twitter. It’s like an accident you drive by: you don’t really want to look…it doesn’t make you feel good to look…but yet, you just can’t help it. But it’s actually worse than that. The state of affairs is such that I have the feeling that I […]Read More Mitigating “Trump Fatigue Syndrome”
I mentioned that I’ve been stumbling into some really interesting music lately (after like a year-and-a-half of what felt like I was wandering in a musical wasteland – uninspired and bored and unable to connect with pretty much everything I came across.) Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats really jolted me out of that! (As […]Read More On the Rest of My Recent Musical Finds
