Artist Spotlight: Durante

I’ve been on a bit of a kick lately with this guy who really caught me by surprise a few weeks back. I was in the midst of browsing similar artists recently: Tourist, Amtrack, Le Youth, Maya Jane Coles, etc. and at the end of my playlist came Spotify radio. This led me to aContinue reading “Artist Spotlight: Durante”

Concert Review: Marcus King Band

Mama we made it! The first show since quarantine began finally happened. It’s been 6+ long months of cancelled shows, rescheduled events, and music withdrawals. I’m being dramatic, of course, but if you are a fellow concert goer you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you’re curious, check out my post here for aContinue reading “Concert Review: Marcus King Band”

It has, without a doubt, been a wild last few months here. And by here I mean everywhere. For me, you – all of us. And in all the commotion, I have been really bad about posting. So I apologize. But we are back now, officially. That means more routine, scheduled posts.

June Weekend Flicks Part 2: 12 Years as a Slave, Deadpool, Air Force One, Annihilation, etc.

Back to it… let’s finish the list (for now)! 12 Years as a Slave (2016) – Drama, Timepiece – Score: (9/10): This is a film I went into viewing quite ignorantly, to be honest, as in I had no idea what to expect. I was shocked I hadn’t gotten around to seeing it after itsContinue reading “June Weekend Flicks Part 2: 12 Years as a Slave, Deadpool, Air Force One, Annihilation, etc.”

June Weekend Flicks Part 1: The Fugitive, Cloud Atlas, My Cousin Vinny, and more.

It’s been another weird month of quarantine, indeed. But at least the weather here in New England has been for the most part, excellent. No complaints on my end. In fact, I actually got plenty of time to sit down in June and enjoy some films on my watchlist I have been putting off forContinue reading “June Weekend Flicks Part 1: The Fugitive, Cloud Atlas, My Cousin Vinny, and more.”

Missing Live Music? Me too. Let’s talk about it.

I will be the first to say I’ve had it very, very good when it comes to the ability to see live shows in the past year and a half. Not only has the greater New England area been packed full of artists, big and small, but they are all in relatively accessible venues atContinue reading “Missing Live Music? Me too. Let’s talk about it.”

Subtle and Not so Subtle Homages to Psychedelics in Film

I have wanted to make a post on this for awhile now because I find it fascinating how directors can portray the psychedelic experience through the medium of a screen. To be able to take a very mental and physical experience and covert that to sights and sounds takes a solid amount of creativity andContinue reading “Subtle and Not so Subtle Homages to Psychedelics in Film”

Honoring the Timeless and Influential Black Contributions to Music

In honor of many of the recent protests and Black Lives Matter movements taking hold around the globe, and simply because it is a great topic for a brief blog post, I want to take a moment to pay homage to some of the greats of our time and long before it in the musicalContinue reading “Honoring the Timeless and Influential Black Contributions to Music”

My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Films of 2019

2019 was a good year for film. Not that it was the best year by any means, but it was certainly beneficial for the film industry. You had movies like Avengers top box offices worldwide with $2.7B in profits, followed by Lion King at $1.6B and Spider Man: Far From Home at $1.1B. If you’reContinue reading “My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Films of 2019”
