    09/06/2014 Duration: 01h03min

    After being absent for a few weeks, I'm back at it-- I figured if Jimmy Fallon could take a week off, I could take four. Anyhow, after heading up to Gold Rush Country and watching lots of NatGeo and Ken Burns documentaries, I've been wanting to get out of the city and head into the American Wilderness. This week features music that is ideal for playing on a long road trip as you look at the American landscape from a moving window. The original mix was about three times the length-- if you're interested in hearing more songs, please let me know and I'll share the rest of the songs that didn't make the cut. Thanks for listening! Song listing: 1. Laura Veirs - America 2. Emma Louise - Boy 3. Iron & Wine - Boy With A Coin 4. Air Review - America's Son 5. Paul McCartney - Heart Of The Country 6. Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros - Johnny Appleseed 7. Dawn Landes - Try to Make a Fire Burn Again 8. Mississippi John Hurt - Lonesome Valley 9. Elizabeth Cotten - Freight Train 10. Hank Williams - I Saw The Light

  • 08 Keep Moving

    05/03/2013 Duration: 51min

    Indie rap/underground rap/a buncha rappers you prolly should've already heard of/whatever you wanna call it, it's good rap. I draw a lot of inspiration from independent artists, especially in the rap community. Their work ethic and desire to keep moving their music to the next level is something I look to for motivation for me and my photography. It's a great reminder to me that if I want it bad enough, I'll make it happen and give up at nothing to achieve my goals. Song listing: 1. Intuition - Imagining 2. VerBS - Feelings Getting In The Way 3. Dumbfoundead - Are We There Yet 4. Open Mike Eagle - When Pianos Break (feat. P.O.S) 5. Dessa - Press On (feat. Sims) 6. Audio Perm - Untitled Pt. I (feat.

    28/01/2013 Duration: 52min

    In episode three, I talk about my shower/bathing ritual and how I view it as a spiritual experience.

I also share an odd experience/dream/fantasy that reoccurs in my life. Song listing: The Postal Service - This Place Is A Prison Gayngs - The Walker Lazerbeak - Pearly Gates Bon Iver - Wash.
