Finally, I have a blog

The wait is over. Read about my banal adventures in colorful language.

Back in Town Round-Up

I’m back in New Orleans! Woo! A bunch of stuff has happened between covering Pitchfork and now. Let me get you up to speed:

Right now I’m descending down a Pastamania rabbit hole, researching and writing about professional athletes and their ridiculous restaurant ventures. Got a favorite? Hit me up.

Fly Molo @ Banks Street Bar on Flickr.
Snapped a few shots of awesome up-and-comers Fly Molo last weekend at their Banks Street Bar show. More photos here. Be sure to give them a listen!

Here’s a #fbf of literally last Friday when the Accessible Comedy crew decided to pie each other after a weird little open mic. More photos from the show here. TGIF?

The Salton Sea is just as creepy as the last time I visited. As part of the road trip, Scott & I did some exploring at its abandoned State Recreation Area and in Bombay Beach. Photos right here via yrs truly.

Outside Lands 2014, a set on Flickr.
This year’s Outside Lands was a rousing success thanks to the wonderful words of igetwet and my photos, which you can check out right here. Our coverage is on SFAppeal & we live tweeted up a storm @SFAppealOL. ‘til next year, y’all!

Happy Outside Lands y’all! This should give a pretty accurate representation of who I’m seeing this weekend. For a detailed list of recommendations, check out my article via SFAppeal (as well as my OSL meal plan) & be on the lookout for live coverage from myself & igetwet on twitter via @SFAppealOL / sfappeal.com

A Much-Needed Round-Up

Holy hyphens, Batman! I’ve been busy. My festival schedule has been fairly steady, with the next big thing being Outside Lands. All weekend long August 8th-10th I’ll be live-tweeting with igetwet over at @SFAppealOL and providing daily write-ups and photos along with a list of must-sees and must-eats/drinks a week before the festival. Hopefully I can dig up some goofy missed connections afterwards as well. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to since the last lengthy round-up:

I’m going on a fairly large-scale road trip with my guy and will be writing/photo-ing that experience on the blog. Other than that, I’m working on a list of best play-by-play announcers so if you’re a baseball fan & you’ve got some warm fuzzies about, say, Vin Scully and Harry Caray, get at me. Expect more album reviews, interviews, and features as well!

I am also forever seeking tech, music, health, and general news tips. Curious about a topic? Email me and I may very well enlighten you.

Plz + thx!

It’s Been a While; Here’s a Round-Up

I’ve done a lot of shit lately. I was in and out of town almost every week of June and now that I’m back from my most recent trip to Austin, I’ve got a solid two weeks before I’m out of town again, this time for Pitchfork Music Festival. Here’s what I’ve been up to since, like, a month ago:

I’ve got so much shit on the horizon in the immediate future, too. Look for me in the upcoming summer issue of Wag’s Revue, in the July 9th edition of the East Bay Express, imminently (again) on the Daily Beast, & Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, in addition to the usual awesomeness. I’m also entering Glimmer Train's short story contest tonight, so hopefully you can catch me in that as well.
