    I went to see the Sam Roberts band tonight with a couple of friends. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a concert or listened to Sam Roberts. It was funny to see how many people pulled out their phones when a song from 20 years ago came on. I resisted the urge for…

  • October 15, 2023

    While walking to my haircut appointment this afternoon, I realised that I don’t actually listen to the words in songs. It’s been a while since I’ve taken a walk with my headphones on, something I love to do, so I haven’t been paying such close attention to what I’ve been listening to. Chelsea Cutler has…

  • What is a song or poem that speaks to you and why?

    What is a song or poem that speaks to you and why?

    Soon after getting my first car, I would drive to a neighbouring town to smoke cigarettes. It became a regular habit of mine. It was easier for me to stay awake later back then.

  • Music vs TV

    Music vs TV

    I don’t know how to find the cable channels that I pay for. There should be 30 that I have access to among the 9999 in the guide. I’m not bothered, though.

    Some Thoughts on the AirPods Pro

    I had the AirPods Pro for about two weeks before I returned them. I took them to the Apple Store because they weren’t charging properly. The suggested solution was for me to return them and then repurchase new ones when they’re back in stock, a month from now. I’m not sure if I will but…

  • I’m up too late

    Not having anything to get up for in the morning means that I stay up late. I did some laundry, which is now clean but still in the hamper. After the laundry, I did an assortment of things. Here’s a picture that sums up my evening. Bonus points if you know what song was playing…

    I’ve Been Loving This Tune Lately

    There’s something about country music that makes the sunshine feel like summer. Sometimes I feel stuck in the city, often wishing I could just drive away into the prairies, chasing highway mirages. Sitting on the beach in Mexico feels like it was too long ago. Hopefully I’ll get some good park-sits in this summer. P.S.…

  • Just, Loud.

    I’m that jerk that pulls up next to you at a stop light, music blaring out of every open window, including the sunroof. I’ve got a loud enough muffler on my car, as well. Used to be, there’d be a puff of cigarette smoke pouring out of the driver’s window, too. Terrible lane-neighbour, I know.

    Please Subscribe to SonicRetreat

    My buddy who runs the blog SonicRetreat has been talking about discontinuing it; his URL is coming up for renewal or something silly like that. He keeps up on a lot of music, and his posts are very current. The exposure to new music and artists is a good thing for you, if you’re into…

    Too Stay or Tuesday?

    I was digging this tune while walking around this afternoon. [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/66816169″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]

    Sam Smith – A Musician

    I don’t often promote musicians, but what the hell? I haven’t had much to write about lately, and this guy’s pretty good. I first heard of Sam Smith when I discovered “Latch” by Disclosure. I recently learned that he has a new album coming out, and the four tracks that iTunes let me download are…

  • SonicRetreat


    I have friends. Some of my friends venture new projects. I like to support my friends when they do these things. So, here, for you, is a new blog to follow: SonicRetreat. It’s about music — something I rarely write about. It’s only four posts deep, at the time of this writing, but I get…
