  I am a million pieces, I don’t know. How to put them back together; even though, I tried every combination, but never got it right. The azure name tag around my neck burns from 8 to 5 telling me to focus on my mission, Colgate didn’t win the morning war against Grey Goose and […]

Coachellacover

  Oh, Coachella… You beautiful thing, you.  Maybe now that it’s been almost a year since we ended, I can finally stop pretending I don’t have to cope with real life and begin to reflect on the times we shared. If this sounds like a sappy breakup letter, fear not– I have many more weekends […]

Mainstream does not equal low quality, just so long as all the accouterments of the modern studio  are put to use carving a track to its heart. Not acting like child proofing, saving us from anything […]
