Music, Personal Story

Song Lyrics I Severely Misunderstood

Music is so ubiquitous in modern culture that we almost seem to absorb it more than we hear it sometimes, taking its tune and feeling and meaning to heart without ever paying very close attention. I know this has happened to me when I suddenly catch myself singing along to a song I didn't know… Continue reading Song Lyrics I Severely Misunderstood

Things I Saw at SDCC

As I type this, it is Sunday evening of San Diego Comicon weekend, and though it is only 9 PM, I estimate that I have about twenty minutes until my brain quits functioning entirely and I turn into an exhaustion-laden nerd zombie incapable of anything other than muttering "sleeeeeeep" and drooling down my own shirt.… Continue reading Things I Saw at SDCC

The Car Stereo Game

Yellow! (It rhymes with hello--get it?) Tomorrow is my little brother's 21st birthday.

At Depth

Hello. This is going to be a weird post. It is going to be a weird post because I spent this past weekend getting dive certified, which, when done in the Puget Sound, involves a lot of hauling around heavy things and swimming through really cold water while wearing clothing that doesn't like it when… Continue reading At Depth
