Election Night Eve – Or how not to be drunk at the dentist’s office!
In 1971, Carly Simon released a song titled “Anticipation", that peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. In that song, anticipation was a slow delightful teasing of events to come. That song is the exact opposite of the kind of anticipation coursing through the country’s bloodstream. Our anticipation is more like waiting in the dentist’s office; a necessary function in which we wished we could be inebriated.

That gallows nomenclature is sadly appropriate when talking about the number of black and brown bodies that fall to victim to police violence.

The ABC's of Me - Not as arrogant as it sounds.
This episode is a late introduction to the mind behind the microphone. While it's both late for an introduction, and too early to give a personal retrospective, this episode is a light version of both.

The Remarkable Resilience of Apathy
The cost of doing nothing in a time of great social unrest and racial upheaval has never been higher. And the false comfort and ease of apathy has never been easier or more attractive. The seduction of apathy is at times irresistible, but the simple act of voting is the true resistance. And it can bring about the most impactful change in a generation.

Hype or Nah: Vote! Your life depends on it!
With the biggest election in a generation looming on the COVID-19 dappled horizon, I wanted to break down why I think voting for people of color is more important than ever. Between that and showering our "beloved leader" with as much Fleur de sel encrusted shade as possible.
