  • 10 Years, I miss you Dad!

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since you left this mortal realm. I still think of you often and miss you terribly. You were a great dad and inspired me to always follow my heart, to leave it cleaner than I found it, and to just be an all-around good person. I […]

  • Word is Bond Rap Radio Live (Recorded at Hoop Fest)

    I had the opportunity to DJ at Hoop Fest last month in Victoria Park. It was a lot of fun to be providing music while the 3×3 basketball tournament was in session. Once the games were done, we kept the party rocking with a freestyle session and some live performances. It was a lot of […]

  • Word is Bond Rap Radio – Tidal Picks of 2022

    Last week, I did a 2 hour show featuring some of my favourite tracks from last year. Those were submissions to the show or tracks that I actually downloaded and stored on a hard drive. However, last year, I also started streaming music. I tried Apple and Beatsource before finally landing on Tidal. It is […]

  • Captivated by Sound – The Listeners

    The Listeners by Jordan Tannahill As you can see, old habits die hard. I planned to free up some time by not writing lengthy posts about every book I read, but I still did that with the last book and was planning to do it with this one too. The problem is, I have a […]
