If playlists are the ultimate currency of coolness, we're your virtual treasury.
My top two fav personal playlists
7JUL2021; 2225, WED Well, I'm finally beginning my 75th post and it's about a couple of my other creations that I'm pretty proud of. I know that I've begun my last few posts or so in similar fashion; but, I really don't know how to kick this one off.
Alt Summer Playlist
It’s time to crank up your stereo and jam out. From road trips to an afternoon chilling at home here are 15 alt, synth, and rock songs that can stand up to the blistering summer sun.
25 Greatest Songs of David Bowie
25. Starman (1972) Parent Album: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars Leave it to David Bowie to come up with the 12 word album title "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars." But here's the deal when you come up with an album as great as "Ziggy Stardust..." you can be as elaborate as you want with the title. For that matter you can do almost anything you want... wear bright red patent leather platform boots and adorn your face with extravagant makeup so that you look like you're a visitor from another planet... hmmm maybe Mars. Ziggy Stardust was the Starman who's look was somewhat androgynous with a tilt to the masculine.
Summer's End Songs
Summer is my favorite season, so the close of it is often bittersweet to me for some reason. Fall doesn’t start until mid-September, but August is practically an unofficial end to summertime when you think about it. Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and the Fourth of July are behind us. Camps, vacations, and other summer traditions might be too. Heck, we’re halfway through the year after June! Then come mid- to late July, back-to-school season kicks off with supplies on sale and classes starting. And, pre-pandemic, public pools closed after Labor Day anyways.

In these troubling times, society depends upon creative outlets to help anchor and secure the social fabric which binds communities together. Music is one of the most powerful and dynamic forces for helping to usher our spirits in the good times and the bad.
Songs That Break Into My Home and Mug Me at Gunpoint
We all know the feeling. The one where it feels like the song was written specifically for you, like somebody's been looking over your shoulder. The kind that makes you feel a little too seen. Whenever I hear one of those songs that makes me say "oof", there's one special playlist I add it to. Here's a glimpse behind that curtain.
Songs for Orchestrating the Apocalypse
Dystopian fiction has a way of revealing the ugliest parts of the reality we live in. These dystopian stories can be some of the most important, complex, and weaving tales... but they can also exist in those small, universal truths laid out in simple, honest words.
Take a Breath: A Playlist
Ever just feel like stopping and taking a deep breath? This world's all kinds of crazy, and we often get so lost in ourselves and our worries that we lose sight of the present moment. It's so easy to miss out on right now when you're thinking of tomorrow, next week, the months and years ahead.
The Playlist that Shaped My Teenage Years
I’ve always been fascinated by the ability of music to transport us back to a moment in time, so vivid, we can almost breathe the emotions right into our being - the good, the bad, and the ugly. I can hear a song from 20 years ago and find myself singing every lyric as though it hasn’t been decades since I last heard it. It’s an incredible universal medium and practically unavoidable. One line from a song over the speakers at a grocery store can do you in.
My favourite study songs + playlists
In a world where attending lectures from bed is the norm for many students and motivation to study can be rather rare, having the right ambient music for when you are in study-mode is serious business. Here are some of my favourite playlists to listen to when I’m studying, or simply doing assignments.
