Status Update: Fresh Tunes Friday – November 2016

When I talked to friends about moving to Manila, the common reaction was always about the horrendous traffic. I, having psyched myself out, always responded with the same line, “I can take it.” It’s now been just over a month since we moved and I have to say that they were right. But so was I. The traffic is indeed as bad as they say it is, but I am dealing with it just fine.

Life is a Playlist: Fresh Tunes Friday – September 2016

Life is a playlist.

I use Spotify’s Discover Weekly and Release Radar to come up with these playlists and they’re pretty handy. However, not all the recommended songs are actually that good. So I have to keep checking every week until I come up with a solid number of songs. On some weeks I’ll find like 3 great songs and then the next week I’ll get nothing.

Change: Fresh Tunes Friday – August 2016

I’ve changed… and that’s ok. Four years ago Justin Bieber was an asshat joke to me, now he’s an asshat that makes good music.Two years ago we lived in my mom’s basement, now we’re living on our own. A year ago I was an active crossfitter, now I have a dad-bod. And last month I had a comfortable job in Cebu, now I’m about to start a different one in Manila.

34 Days Abroad: Fresh Tunes Friday – July 2016

34 Days Abroad: Fresh Tunes Friday – July 2016

By the time this gets published on Zerothreetwo, I will have begun a 31 hour trip back home. Three flights and two layovers which begins in Akron, Ohio and ends in Cebu, Philippines.
As the title implies, I’d been in the United States for a total of 34 days. It’s been crazy fun, but we’ve had our share of tough times as well. Travelling as a group of 10 adults, 3 kids, 3 pre-schoolers, and 1 toddler is no joke.

Let me tell you more about me and a chronological overview of my musical history.

I grew up in the nineties. As far as I can recall, my love for music started when I was Grade 5 or 6. The songs that I had on rewind/play were Bone Thugs N Harmony’s Crossroads, Dead Eye Dick’s New Age Girl and the Cranberries’ Zombie. Pretty weird mix of genres if you ask me. But a surprisingly clear picture of my future taste in music.

Grieving Artists: Fresh Tunes Friday: May 2016

It’s now been two weeks since Prince passed away, and as with all celebrity deaths my social media feed was filled with all kinds of tributes and homages for the late great artist. People paid their respects through stories, artwork, photos, and song. But amidst all that, there were two that really stood out for me.

Bury It There [Fresh Tunes Friday]

Bury It There [Fresh Tunes Friday]

The combination of sounds and beats is akin to the colors and shapes that create a cohesive piece capable of evoking emotion. This has always been one of the main traits I look for when deciding whether a song is good or not. If it makes us wanna dance, makes us wanna love, or makes us wanna slap someone with a chair, it’s probably got something going for it.
