Every year before the summer starts, mainstream radio and music commentators ask the question, “What is going to be the summer anthem everyone plays over and over again?”   While “Old Town Road”, “Truth Hurts”, “Bad Guy”, and “Senorita” all were massively overplayed and he...

This is a review for the GOT episodes for the currently running season that have aired so far. It is intentionally laden with spoilers. I feel it would be an exercise in futility to write a spoiler-free review for this epic adventure. A commingling of an unintelligible, dimly-lit, and a perpetual...

  Schoolboy Q was one of the first rap artists that I followed religiously back in 2016 after the release of his last album Blank Face LP. The first time I listened to the album was when I was on my exchange in Germany, and it fit the mood so perfectly. “John Muir” and “Big Body” stayed o...

April 3, 2019

  Before this week, there were few things in this world that I could say without a doubt were more boring than folding paper. The closest I ever got to actually doing some form of Origami was when it was Thanksgiving or Columbus Day in elementary school and we made the little turkeys and ships out...
