It’s Monday and you’re going to need a kick in the ass to drag yourself up and out of bed! Allow me to present the seven tracks that won’t just kick your ass, they’ll drag you up to new heights, fill you with vitality, shove you out the door and get you ready to take […]
You know the way people always say “My life is like a soap opera?!” well, my life is like a cartoon. I’ve come to terms with that because I’d love to be a cartoon character (personally I think I’d be a hoot!) but mostly because cartoons have never steered me wrong. So when I say […]
It feels childish to say that Tokyo is a different place by night. Cities, by their very nature, are constantly in flux; changing and bending to the whims and will of the people within them, and the change that befalls every city in the world as daylight dies is universally understood.
