I’ve gotten stoned just a handful of times in my life. Weed was never really my jam, honestly.

Besides that, most […]Read More “Louvered ribcage, gills rise metamorph”
I rather enjoy talking about the passions in my life. Whether it be books that inspired me or films that rewired my brain or records that changed me for the better, I can get lost in the prose.

Harsh Toke’s Light Up And Live was what was thrown on the turntable and damn if it’s not hitting the spot right […]Read More Harsh Toke and the Friday Spin
Lying upon my front stoop when I got home from an unextraordinary workout was a box from Vermont. Inside said box was a heavy ass double LP from the now defunct doom metal band Sleep. Yes, the classic stoner doom metal masterpiece Dopesmoker. The Weedian people have arrived at my humble Midwestern abode and they’re […]Read More Nothin’ but a Dopesmoker
