  • Conscious Men – Why We All Need to Wake Up!

    Conscious Men by John Gray and Arjuna Ardagh It’s nice to see a book like this. I think far too often in the world, men go around blind to what it means to be a man. We don’t think about the gender roles we play in our daily lives. We are not conscious of things […]

  • Paying Tribute to Muhammad Ali on Word is Bond Rap Radio

    I had to pay tribute to Muhammad Ali on the radio program last week. Without him, I don’t think we would have hip-hop music and culture. He was a forefather of the art-form.

With my blog, I am a little more deliberate of what I post and take several hours each week crafting entries. At least, […]

  • The Inaugural “Instagram Immemorial”

    I started using Instagram 111 weeks ago. It’s hard to believe that it has actually been that long. This is my first post from April 2014. It shows a small part of my Daredevil collection. I saw Atmosphere in concert and took this terrible photograph. I did get to talk to Slug backstage and record […]

  • Chase that Content – Don’t Let It Fade Away!

    It’s time to stand on the precipice and look down upon all of the posts that compose the landscape of this blog. It’s time to zoom in on what was happening last year at this time and highlight a few of the stand-out posts from last June. It’s time for Chasing Content! Read all of […]
