mountain


friends,

 

tonight brings us to episode 451. it's a little podcast with music from my friends patrick kobernus and kevin street (of the band cowboy zen), and a new demo from me.

 

as mentioned, patrick and kevin were kind enough to visit me back in january for episodes 433 and 434. if you haven't already listened (or haven't listened recently), you can find these episodes at itunes, or directly here (for 433) and here (for 434).

 

thank you for sharing this, sincerely.

 

love,

russell

breakthrough


friends,

 

this weekend bring us to episode 450; which appears to be a loose continuation of the thoughts and themes from last week (forever - episode 449). i'm self-conscious about posting this at all, but i do hope it can help to say such things openly.

 

beside the motivation to summarize and understand/transcend, i'm interested in, and respectful of, the miracle and impentetrability of consciousness itself. it's humbing and beautiful, and i'm thankful to have another chance to try to say it.

 

you're invited.

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

taylor swift


friends,

 

welcome to the month of may, and to episode 447. this week finds me continung to meander through thoughts related to relationship, desire, growth, age - this time inspired by songs from taylor swift's recent album 1989.

 

i love how songs work - even though, or maybe actually because, i don't understand it. i'm re-listening to "all you had to do was stay" as i type this, and strangely surprised by the heartbreak, amidst defensive rejection, that feels embedded in it. did i say this on the podcast? i can't remember. if not, i meant to.

 

read - the guardian review

one of the big hits - blank space

another pop treat - style

and then there's - this beautiful cover

and - this one too

and a nice cover of - bad blood

 

i hope you'll listen!

 

love,

russell
