Master… of your own heartbeat. (Ben Howard)

Master… of your own heartbeat. (Ben Howard)

If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. ― Albert Einstein Would you humor me and marinate on that for a bit? I often think in music. I live my daydreams in […]

Oh Oh Oh – We Have Band

I think we’ve all heard, “Don’t talk if you can’t improve upon the silence”. That sums up exactly how I feel about music. I like silence. A lot, actually. And if the music can’t improve upon the silence … Well, why bother? There are a few bands that I adore, whose music utterly consumes me, […]

“Authentic. Artistic. Real. & Believable.” Jessie Baylin

I tend to pick my music the same way I pick my friends. What’s your favorite quality in a person? I like kindness. I truly admire energetic people (because I’m not one). I love a witty sense of humor. But the number one magnetic quality for me is joy. I am positively crazy about joyful […]
