An Open Letter to the Lake County School Board

POSTED ON December 20, 2013 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 5 Comments
 

  For the love of God, what is wrong with you people? Imagine my surprise (and disgust) today when I learned that you are doubling down on your efforts to block the formation of a Gay-Straight Alliance at Carver Middle School. As such, the ACLU has now filed a second suit on behalf of the ... Read More

The Tenderness of Joy

POSTED ON December 16, 2013 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Back in September, I made the decision to take a brief hiatus from music. I needed the extra time and space to focus on writing for my new website and to finish up a couple of other projects. I also needed a beat or two to step back, take a breath and reevaluate the whole ... Read More

Greeting the Seahawks-Our Wild Night at SeaTac

POSTED ON December 09, 2013 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

We completely lost our minds last night. It was one of those “one thing led to another” situations. I was hanging out with Lora and Jeff, my faithful football buddies. Whenever the Seahawks play, we’re together. We yell at the TV and each other. We jump around. We celebrate. We represent. We’re crazy for our ... Read More

Christmas: Have We Lost Our (bleeping) Minds?

POSTED ON December 02, 2013 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 4 Comments
 

    Black Friday. The mad crush of humanity at its worst. We’ve watched aghast another year as images on the nightly news and throughout social media show people clawing, punching, scratching, kicking and sometimes even shooting to get to the holy grail of discounted flat screens, gaming consoles and i-gadgets. This odious ritual has ... Read More

Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away and for the whole month of November, people have been running around talking about what they’re grateful for.

What is God?

POSTED ON November 11, 2013 | POSTED IN: My Blog | Post A Comment
 

Just to make it clear from the outset here, this isn’t the post I wanted to write today. It wasn’t part of the plan. This isn’t a topic I have any interest in poking at publicly and this certainly isn’t the territory I want to stray into on this blog. Nope. But with Typhoon Haiyan ... Read More

The Tao of the Bio

An artist bio is the narrative that leads people from your work– music, dance, painting or whatever– to you. It satisfies the natural curiosity that is aroused when people dig what you do.

Six Things We Can Learn From Richard Sherman

POSTED ON October 22, 2013 | POSTED IN: My Blog | 18 Comments
 

Today I’m putting my hands in the air for the Seattle Seahawk’s fun-loving, shit-disturbing All-Pro cornerback and my new hero – Richard Sherman. I’ve been a Seahawks fan for a few years now but no player has inspired or delighted me quite like  the mighty Mr. Sherman. He’s spirited. He’s sharp. He’s intrepid. He’s the ... Read More
