POP Goes The Sun




So it's been cold, and frosty, and overcast, and raining all day long, and it looks like it'll be this way for a few days, so I'm going to take it upon myself to supply the sunshine!

You're welcome.

click "LISTEN NOW" then grab your sunglasses and bask in the warmth!

POP Goes The Heart




I'm sorry to report that October and I are no longer seeing each other.

Sadly, we broke up this past Thursday, and she moved out on Friday.

I knew it wouldn't last. These fall romances rarely do.

There's something significantly poignant, and bittersweet about nursing a broken heart amidst the colorful, dying fall foliage (even if it is over a "girlfriend" that's actually a conceptual ideal).

Still, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get all Lloyd Dobler and hoist the metaphorical boom box outside of October's window!
