OK, I thought I was up to date on this stuff, I guess not. I’ve see links to Soundcloud before and never paid much attention to it. I normally use Hype Machine to find and search for music. Well, aside … Continue reading

Since I’m not completely oblivious to sports, although music is more my thing, I had a discussion with a co-worker (Matt Tevelow) who seems to be one of the many resident sport-nerds at work (Greyson is another, however everything must … Continue reading

Got a fun email from a nice girl named Lucia promoting the band “We Are Like the Spider“. I listened to a few of the tracks and I have to say my favorite is “Lightning Garden”. It starts out funky, … Continue reading

Ok, so I’m going to post and write about Crystal Castles today. I don’t think they get enough recognition. Whenever I hear their tracks I’m dancing, singing and throwing my arms in the air like a blacklady at pentecostal church. … Continue reading

I guess being an econ major I should understand the work/leisure trade off. I think I have a very high leisure requirement, or at least a very high requisite in monetary terms to trade my leisure for work. Although, during … Continue reading

Has anyone else been completely absorbed into the Winter Olympics? I’ve always loved the winter olympics, where summer sports lose my interest past the opening ceremony, the complete opposite has been true this year. The opening ceremony was totally bizarre, … Continue reading

Chris Garneau – No More Pirates The market is down, a lot. I think all the news out there is too much for investors to keep positive. It’s interesting that short term stories, and rather small events, affect the long-run … Continue reading
