The Blues

Let me explain why there’s a song on my new EP with Drunk Pedestrians about the blues!  I’ve been studying for the wayback machine.  Basically I’ve been writing the lyrics for this up and coming EP about Time Travel, ‘Marvelous Adventures of the Wayback Machine’ and it’s been like a constant history lesson.  Not that I’m complaining!  Continue reading

Some of My Favourite Grime Records

Here are some of my favourite Grime Records.  Some may argue there’s no difference between Grime and UK Hip Hop.  I would argue there’s a distinct difference.  For those that aren’t in the know about the UK music scene and Grime as a genre this wikipedia page on Grime gives a pretty good description.Continue reading

Living as a Peaceful Warrior

Here is Dan Millman talking about living as a peaceful warrior.  Dan Millman is the writer of the book “Way of the Peaceful Warrior” and is in fact one of my favourite people.  He’s not a doctor or someone with a PhD in psychology but nonetheless I at very least like and draw inspiration from his approach to life and I find it enlightening to hear him speak.Continue reading
