My cats seriously brought on the banter today, throwing up and tumbling over chairs as I tried to discuss how we can get an outline done if we only overcome fear. This is what I get for recording at lunch time. Hope you had a Happy Halloween!!!
Working with Oyster Ridge has not only allowed me to capture top notch talent, but also to fulfill my goal of working as a performance arts videographer, and develop that part of my creative brain. This song stuck with me all summer and dare I say, it was one of my festival favorites. When we got back from the festival, it was the first one I wanted to edit because it was such an enthralling moment in their set. So you can be sure Ghost of Paul Revere is now a regular on my Spotify!
Now if you’re in Wyoming or neighboring areas, and are interested in learning more about Wyoming’s largest FREE music festival, please visit www.oysterridgemusicfestival.com. It’s a phenomenal labor of love and it’s a wonder to see it come to life each July! See you next year and bring your friends!

You bet your ass I watched the Raul Julia documentary this weekend. My goodness, he was astounding onstage and I would have straight up murdered to see him live. Much like any person of color who aspires or once aspired to make the theater their livelihood, watching his story unfold reminded me of the insurmountable obstacles to becoming a working and successful theater practitioner. I have learned that Raul was proud and unapologetically Puerto Rican, opened the doors for so many, and lived an incredible life. One of the great American actors of his generation and an inspiration.
Also, shout out to u/TheDeadpooliNAllofUS for sharing this gem of a cover in the Radiohead subreddit. Lots of gold there, one of my favorite communities.
On this episode, we’d like to share our first reaction to Bill Burr’s hilarious new comedy special, Paper Tiger.
We try the Reddit News Headlines Recap under a time crunch, and Maddie gives us some immediate responses after checking out the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s IT (the first chapter). Scary spooky movies are definitely not her thing.
Here we have an interesting episode where we talk about two things and then some:
First off, we discuss Amazon’s Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a delightful award-winning series we just started watching. If you haven’t seen it, stop by for a listen!
In lieu of picking something off the headlines, Madd and I thought we should look at reddit for inspiration and decided to check out the top headlines from this past week to find one uplifting headline. Might be the way to handle headlines moving forward, we’ll see!
And lastly, we wanted to get into the Disneyverse for a moment and talk about one of our favorite movies from childhood: Aladdin. We may have gone on a magic carpet ride express tangent about Disney’s insatiable lust for power, remakes, and our anticipation for Disney Plus. What the hell Disney, shut up and take our money…
I’m considering taking some of my blog posts every now and then and turning them into something tangible, like a little zine. I would do this often as a kid, but the practice fell out of favor in my mind over recording like a madman. I’m thinking it would be good for me to step away from the computer more often and use my hands to create something. I long for the organic and tactile more than ever. In my research, I found this great issue in the great Reddit community of zines, by u/thecorndogbaron, entitled: Cookies as an Allegory for the Loneliness of a Human Heart.
I leave you with one of my favorite songs growing up. Included in the superb Mission Impossible cash grab “Inspired by the Motion Picture Soundtrack,” Powderfinger came into my life at an impressionable time and their track guided years of uncertainty as I began my teenage years. It rings with so much melancholy for me it’s insane, but it’s a hell of a song nonetheless.
