This week, we congratulate the President and the First Lady for celebrating 23 years of marriage and looking fly throughout their time together.
This week, I had a lot of feelings about the busy week in news. Let’s get to it.
We lost the great blues legend BB King this week. Time Magazine takes a look back at his life through photos.
We’re gearing up for the Super Bowl (meaning party food), which means we’re bookending this week with some sports news.
How was your weekend? This past week was a busy one for social activism.
Seriously, how could all this shit happen in just one week? And a distressing amount hit the news between when I turned in last week’s article and when it actually ran. Can we have a break, please? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)

Summer Battle: Kanye vs Jay Z
This summer had the distinct pleasure of not only a Kanye West album dropping, but a Jay Z one dropping as well. I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without pitting the two head to head into a musical thunderdome. Full disclosure, I am a bigger Kanye fan vs. a Hova fan but I am trying […]
Once again, we find ourselves with two weeks’ worth of misogyny to round up. Can’t the world ever cut us a break? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Ten Songs Keeping Me Sane This Week
The last few weeks have been a crazy blur. My emotions have hit the highest highs and some really anxiety-inducing lows. I got married to my lovely wife and I came out both to my family and at work. Music really kept me going through this week.
30 Years of Music: 2004
2004! The year of my daughter’s birth, and also the year in which I felt like the decade really started to come into its own, musically. My personal favorites from this time skew a bit indie, yet I still include some popular tunes that I really dig. Let’s wander back, shall we?
30 Years of Music: 2003
My roundup of personal favorites from 2003 errs a bit on the interconnected nature of music. One artist knows another who worked with another who was inspired by another, and on and on. I enjoy seeing and hearing my favorites overlap, as it’s just one more way to show that art is not created in […]
30 Years of Music: 2001
2001 is a hard one for me – not for lack of great music, but more because I was a depressed human making bad decisions during most of that year, and come that September, the national climate took its own downturn. The feels, man. Let’s have them.
I don’t even think this really needs an introduction, but I’m just going to say that this is some serious pants-dropping music. CJ bless you, Justin Timberlake.
A mashup album combining David Bowie’s great glam manifesto with incredible hip-hop? Now this one caught me TOTALLY off guard.
