2019 Mixtape

Back for a second year, it’s my mixtape of my favorite songs of the year.  I know you’ve all been waiting. Another year has gone by and I’ve gotten another year older.  My desire to keep up with what’s hot continues to wane and I’d rather spend my time digging in to old vinyl than […]

Top 19 Albums of the 2010’s

The 2010’s are almost over?!?  What a decade for music…right?  I think?  I’m not sure music itself has gotten any better or worse.  Pop music is terrible and popular rock music hardly has a pulse anymore (save us, Greta Van Fleet!).  I continue to say music is better than it’s ever been, you just have […]

I first heard Prince when I was six years old. […]

Prince’s Christmas in August

This Cork Record Mat Probably Means There is No Line

I don’t remember when I started collecting records again.  I say “again” because I did have records at some point.  I remember proudly presenting my Michael Jackson “Thriller” vinyl at show-and-tell in Mrs. Anderson’s 1st grade class.  I still have some New Jack Swing-Era 12″ singles.  If you’re looking for hard-to-find remixes of anything by […]
