Our Favorite Movie Soundtracks – Making top 10s can be hard

There is really nothing better than when a director’s music selection fits perfectly with the content on the screen. Music has a way of making normal scenes seem surreal, turning characters into rockstars, and turning simple moments into unforgettable ones. That is because music helps us associate emotion and mood with a particular scene –Continue reading “Our Favorite Movie Soundtracks – Making top 10s can be hard”

Reflecting on Our Current Situation

I wanted to comment briefly on COVID-19 and how it is affecting us. By this, I mean our new lifestyle: working remotely, living strictly at our own homes, and venturing into the outside world only every once in a great while. There is no doubt about it – it isn’t ideal. In fact, it honestlyContinue reading “Reflecting on Our Current Situation”

My 3 Favorite Apocalypse and Post-Apocalyptic Films: Coronavirus Edition

Hello fellow Coronavirus survivors. Has there been a better time to talk about the end of the world? In my life, I doubt it.

Concert Review: Circles Around the Sun

I had the pleasure of attending a Circles show at the Sinclair in Cambridge, MA on Monday.

Winter 2019-2020 Concert Reviews: Mapache, Allah-Las, and Beach Fossils

I’m still catching up on a few shows I saw in late 2019 and early 2020, so in revisiting these I’m hoping to touch on what made them interesting or not so much. Mapache came first as an opener for Allah-Las. It was one of those $15 midweek shows, so pretty hard to resist. WeContinue reading “Winter 2019-2020 Concert Reviews: Mapache, Allah-Las, and Beach Fossils”

Winter 2019 Concert Review: Tedeschi Trucks Band

I’ll make this short. I love TTB. Derek Trucks is my favorite living guitarist currently along with Trey. Accompanied by a full band, complete with horns, drums, backup vocals, keys, and the lovely Susan Tedeschi (who deserves the stage in her own right – and has) – this is about as good a full musicalContinue reading “Winter 2019 Concert Review: Tedeschi Trucks Band”
