I Love to Play Music

Music, dance, and visual arts are mostly undervalued in our society (except for videogames). When I say undervalued I do not mean that there are not expensive shows to see or art pieces to own. I mean that not enough of our tax money goes towards supporting artists and encouraging everyone to express themselves artistically.Continue reading “I Love to Play Music”

Woodland Alliance

I have not really talked about my band Woodland Alliance because for some reason I wanted to keep these two projects separated. I have recently realized that both projects cover similar themes and some people might enjoy the lyrical aspect of my work in Woodland Alliance. I was playing bass in the band for aContinue reading “Woodland Alliance”

Why Walking is My Favorite Activity

Helps Manage and Solve Pain As a musician and gamer with an extremely sedentary past, walking (mixed with meditation) has helped manage and heal the pain from carpal tunnel, costochondritis, and nerve pain.

Absinthe Flights on Summer Nights

I really should not fly this low at night. But the experience of neon lights streaming by while blasting The Bumper Brothers with the smell of absinthe wafting through the cockpit really gets my fizzes whizzing.

Kirby’s Adventure on NES is My Favorite Album of All Time

The Soundtrack on Youtube Kirby’s Adventure gives me all sorts of warm fuzzy nostalgic feelings. The color palate, art style, and lullaby soundtrack form a triforce of comfort. The sound design of this game is technically the most complex of all NES games due to it being released 8 years after the launch of theContinue reading “Kirby’s Adventure on NES is My Favorite Album of All Time”
