My 16 favorite albums of 2014

2014 was another stellar year for music. It started in January with a great album from Mogwai (Rave Tapes), and ended in December with the instant classic Black Messiah, from D’Angelo. Here’s the rundown of my favorite records: 1. FLYING LOTUS, You’re Dead! Death is a topic that can be untouchable – not many artists […]

Poem: b r e a t h e

two words with two G’s spread hate like a disease the smoke is everywhere and i can’t breathe. it only took one arm to squeeze the life out of an unarmed man the only thing in his hands were the lifelines embedded on his palms, now we stand on the front lines singing songs of […]

Photos of Lockwood Murphy and Sarah Kenney

I was asked to take photos of a friend’s proposal: Lockwood planned to propose to his girlfriend (now fiancé!), Sarah Kenney, at the Battery. I’m definitely not a photographer, but I think the pics turned out pretty solid! See for yourself. Congrats to the couple! Nice to see so many good people choosing to get […]

New videography work: Komen Race for the Cure, 2014

The video I did for last year’s Komen Race is one of my favorite videography pieces. So, I put a lot of pressure on myself to make this one just as impressive. This year was special because Jordan was the Chair of the whole Race, so I was able to hear more about the behind-the-scenes […]

For every great record like 3121, you’ll get a less-than-stellar album like Planet Earth, just one year later. But believe me, his two latest albums, ART OFFICIAL AGE and PLECTRUMELECTRUM, […]

Poem: “CODE.”

If I write lines of poems like I write lines of code, no comma would be out of place and every quotation mark left open would throw the whole piece off center. Maybe coding is, in fact, poetry. Maybe life is, in fact, poetry and we are the result of a Universal code where X’s […]

Somewhere in West London …

I have many favorite artists. Most of you know about the heavy hitters on my list: Prince, Joni Mitchell, Ani Difranco, PJ Harvey, Tori, Tribe. On that list as well is Kate Bush, and she’s making news because she performed her first concert in 35 years last night in London. It’s part of a 22 […]

New poem: “Mother Nature’s Reckless Daughter”

I am a feminist I am Joni Mitchell’s 8th album, with bass lines rooted in jazz I will re-rout her Refuge of the Roads back to 1976, the year a woman gave birth to a Black Crow flying, in a deep, blue sky. I am mother nature’s Reckless Daughter, the boy who grew from the […]
