some goodbyes



the heart of tonight's podcast is anchored by a song i feel good about.


feelings can be hard to make sense of,

and it feels good to stumble on moments that help move us forward,

or portray an element of a truth you can't otherwise explain, or

i hope you know what i mean.


i'd love it if you'd share episode 631 with me.

the songs:

- i don't wanna be happy (no more), [night beach, 2011]

- crescent city, [2018 demo]

- i been dreaming, [2015 demo of a 2007-ish?? song)

catch 22



episode 629 centers around a few songs of regret, loss, love, so on.


i imagine most of us relate to feeling caught between impossible choices, where right and wrong twist into inseparable circles, where it's both and neither, or who knows?? somewhere in-between, i guess.


memories like that can haunt us.

they do me, anyway.


if you can, i hope you'll join me.

the songs:

- sanchez & 29th (splitting, 2015)

- dragonfly (lost demo, 2015)

- all i know's i got it wrong (lost demo, 2013)

yoko ono



episode 628 centers around my appreciation for the artist-musician yoko ono, and her new just-released album titled "warzone." as mentioned, i'm aware that much of culture doesn't hear yoko as i do. i think i understand (mostly) why that is... and yet, even if that's you, i hope you'll maybe give her another chance???

the book - grapefruit


new song - now or never

now or never - original 70's version
