ALBUMS OF 2017

ALBUMS OF THE YEAR The end of the calendar year is always a favorite time of mine for multiple reasons: 1) Mariah Carey makes her annual financial and social comeback, 2) the general festiveness of it all, and 3) year-end lists. I find it quite difficult to believe that publications have enough gumption to claim…

SCHITT’S CREEK

Let’s take a moment to talk about Schitt’s Creek. Let’s also take a moment to fully realize that Canadians really have it better right now. The politicians are classy and hunky, Celine still has her voice, Canada has Vancouver on its roster, and then there’s Shania. However, Schitt’s Creek is the latest import from our…

BRIT POP

London is upon us… well, I’m traveling to London this Thursday for a long weekend. The main purpose of the trip is to finally see Emeli Sande, LIVE! Granted, I’ve been to London before; however, that was then, and this is now. I plan on avoiding some of the more common things and actually embracing “British life”….

Nike Advance 15 Jacket

In a literal sea of options (Adidas, LuluLemon, Under Armour, etc) Nike has really started to stand out to me as a lux athletic wear brand. Let it be known, I would wear athletic wear all day, every day if I could. Athletic wear has recently become a trend most people are hoping on board…

The Knocks | Worship ft. MNEK

Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson make up the DJ duo that is The Knocks. Based out of New York City and known for creating songs that blend disco, pop, EDM and electronic dance music. Their current EP Testify, which was released Friday February 3rd, contains what has to be one of the best songs…

Which Mandy Moore Album Are You?

By the end of 2016 I was extremely grateful for This Is Us, because it single-handedly brought Mandy Moore’s career back to life. It had gotten bleak for Mandy after multiple failed starts at pilots for major TV networks, and her latest album, though quite wonderful, failed to impress on the charts and sales front….
