General Ghost, Lyndia

General Ghost, Lyndia

General Ghost is a relatively new band, formed sometime in 2011 by Jon Howard and Kyle Rictor. I stumbled across their album Drifter Painter Drinker Sinner rather innocently after it popped up in an Rdio feed.

From what I can track down, both musicians currently live in Nashville, TN…

Desert Ribbons

Desert Ribbons

I recently embarked on an early season desert climb outside Tempe, AZ. It was one of those days that tests your mettle, sweat finding it’s way through a helmet’s facets with ease. The sun baked and the road’s ribbons never gave way.

On this particular day the valley…

Yasiin Gaye, The Departure

I’m always on the lookout for inspiring hip hop with jazzy flair. To my surprise I recently stumbled across this mixtape and haven’t been able to stop it from spinning.

Yasiin Gaye – The Depature, released on February 25, is a project by producer Amerigo Gazaway who combines tracks from…

Clearing The Decks

Sometimes life is so busy you feel like you’re grasping for straws and nothing comes to completion in a satisfactory way. You begin one thing and are sidetracked by three more things. Respond to two things and four more inquiries land on your doorstep.

When it rains it pours, they’ll…

A Forest Room

I remember the conversation vividly. A couple drinks, early fall but not too chilly to be uncomfortable. The sun was down at a local hip spot. Think: hipsters and colored mood lights in full force.

She was curious but guarded, not at a place to entirely buy-in to what I…

Childish Gambino, RIP

Childish Gambino, RIP

I started off as anything but a Childish Gambino fan. A good friend of mine has loved what Donald Glover’s been doing for a while, and in passing often mentioned him in hip-hop conversations. I always laughed it off.

All along I couldn’t get the image of Donald from his…

Krabbé and the Col de la Sereyréde

Kilometer 106-108. Climbing. Hands on the bars, my wrists in front of me. They’re wet.

Kilometer 109. Col de la Sereyréde. An opening in the woods. A guardrail, a bench, a half a millstone, undoubtedly pointing out the highlights of a panorama spreading for miles around. Mist.

To the right is…

Reflections of Yesteryear

A 180° shift is how I view the space between one year ago and today.

I think back to my marriage ending, still occasionally floating in my mind’s eye of what came before, during, and after that time. And that particular shade of black; that feeling of darkness when the tears…

Circa Survive, Imaginary Enemy

Circa Survive, Imaginary Enemy

We all have them: songs, spreading the genres, that we return to for shifting reasons over the years. An earmark of another time. A musical trance that once meant something completely different, but still sticks with us in a fit of melancholy wrapped around new meaning. Its gravity was just…

Remote Working, Take Two

Remote Working, Take Two

I recently returned from a two week trip across Japan with my good friend. There’s no showing off here: it was an incredible opportunity and I’m endlessly thankful for being able to tag along. While we were traveling, I was dabbling in design work for my business when time (and…
