I don't do single song Soundcloud roundups enough, but when they happen, know that all the mentioned songs are worthy of proper digestion.

Ayyy Bahaha Lmao: Responding to Jokes Via Text

Sending something you perceive to be hilarious anecdotes or jokes in the digital medium can be a risky affair, ripe with good ole fashioned paranoia and misunderstanding. As the varying expressions of digital amusement are received, there’s no way to tell if the person is actually laughing or if the joke landed with all of the vigor of a flaccid thud. Was that all caps LOL a mild grin, a slight chuckle, a guffaw or just a courtesy to not ruin my already dwindling digital self-...

A Roller Coaster of Joy and Sadness: The Emotions in Pixar's Inside Out

Wednesday night, I went with my girlfriend to see Pixar's newest, Inside Out.

Jet Sets and Globe Trots with Daytrip (@take_a_daytrip)

Daytrip is providing an experience for you. Like the Calm app that I recently downloaded for meditation, Daytrip provides an out of body float. After all, their logo is a hot air balloon. Hit play and spend four days in the sand embracing exotic oils and nautical smells. Posse cuts and perspiration. Glitch, grime, hip-hop, and dancehall thrown into a blender with some rum and pineapple.

First Impressions of Miyazaki: Porco Rosso (1992)

Continuing my rundown of Miyazaki's filmography, I watched Porco Rosso this week. In the realm of Miyazaki, comparatively, it's a pretty realistic animated film. Other than, you know, the main character being a womanizing pig.

“I'm a known womanizer. I live on a deserted island in a small tent.”
