I seem to always have a need for highly-detailed themed playlists.
One for every occasion. There's usually some overlap. That's okay.

The one playlist I go back to for just about everything - work, relaxing, concentration, cooking, sleep - is an instrumental one I put together on Spotify. A good mix of film scores, contemporary classical, and other ambient instrumental  tracks. Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter, Erik Satie, Clint Mansell, Joe Hisaishi, Andrew Bird...

Figured I'd share it. Let's listen to the same background noise internet: "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."


(Koi at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Phoenix)

This is like the part of every superhero film where you're lead to believe that the hero has fallen, and then a pile of rubble starts shifting, and next thing you know your hero emerges dusty and bloody, but very alive and ready to kick some bad-guy ass.

Okay, maybe it's not EXACTLY like that.

All you need to know is - BLOG!- I have a new one! It's this one! Cool huh? I'll write things on here sometimes. Maybe even with pictures. I might share my monthly movie lists? Who knows! There's only one way to find out - delete my old blog from your feed and follow this guy right here. There's bound to be all sorts of cool stuff going on. Right? No? Maybe?
