As time passes, the less certain I become. I used to be sure, I used to have an absolute image in my mind that I had a future in photography. I'd scoff at people dropping their passion because if you just got at it enough I thought, you'd make it. Somebody would notice. The problem … Continue reading it’s Time for change

The Best Grunge Album You’ve Never Heard

The first time I heard '68s debut album was a couple of years after the initial release. I remember being blown the fuck away. I checked my phone to see who this 90s band I had never heard was. Turned out it was a relatively recent album by a mysterious, almost nameless band. Their track … Continue reading The Best Grunge Album You’ve Never Heard

5-HTP and Me

Relationships are fleeting, friendship is the new family. New faces are hard to come by, joy is a slight grasp of air. Hangovers can feel pointless unless the misery is shared. Fun can be hard to find when you're locked inside your own mind. Locked inside four walls with the meta and real. It's too … Continue reading 5-HTP and Me
