  2. collab of the century???
  3. Feels very… ‘80s female lead to me. I dig it.
  4. Not a repeat! One is the “explicit” version and one isn’t… but they’re actually very different iterations of the same song.
  5. Feels very “Fred again..”
  6. I have done no research to find the answer to this question, because it’s more fun that way, but I keep wondering: did Beyoncé already have the classical-opera-style training for this, or did she learn it just for this song? Either way, daaaaang.
  7. This is the one song I added whilst I was away from my computer and listening to less music.
  8. A+ song to sing along to in the shower, can recomend.

Photography United States

Virgin Islands National Park

Visiting a national park is always cool when you’ve got the opportunity. Virgin Islands National Park is… slightly more out of the way than many of them, but definitely worth checking out.

Getting there involves flying in to St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and then taking a ferry over to St. John. The view from the ferry is a pretty good introduction:

Photograph of St. John Island, taken from the ferry leaving St. Thomas Island.

There’s a few options for ferries; if you’ve already rented a car, the Love Island Car Ferry is your best bet, and has a pretty reasonable schedule. Depending on which of their ships you wind up on, it’s worth hopping out after you’ve parked and paid/checked in and going to the upper deck to watch the ride.

Photograph of a decaying, partially-sunken vehicle ferry in Cruz Bay on St. John island.

You’ll be dropped off in Cruz Bay, a dense town that doesn’t offer much by way of walkability, but overflows with options to rent… Jeeps, mostly, though there’s a some variety thanks to the Bronco.

Photograph of a stop sign in Cruz Bay, St. John. It has many stickers added, including letters that make it read "Don't Stop Believin"

Get into the park, though, and there’s a whole lot to do. We’d hoped to do the Snorkeling Trail at Trunk Bay Beach, but it was packed, and hiking there from a parking lot that wasn’t at capacity seemed like a great way to get heat stroke. Instead, we wound up at Cinnamon Bay.

Photograph of the Cinnamon Bay Beach and Campground sign in Virgin Islands National Park.

There’s a good setup; a campground, a little restaurant, and, once you walk past the park information signs and some ruins, the beach.

Photograph of overgrown ruins in Virgin Islands National Park. A sign reads "Danger: Unstable Ruins. Do not enter." A rock formation in the ocean is faintly visible through an open window in the ruins.

And oh, what a beach! The Caribbean, it’s got some great beaches, who knew? Though there’s no snorkel trail here, it’s still good snorkeling – almost directly out from these ruins, about level with the buoys, there’s a coral reef that’s fun to float around. (Treat the wildlife well, though! Don’t touch anything, don’t step on any coral, and make sure that any sunscreen and/or bug spray you apply is coral-safe.)

Photograph of Cinnamon Bay in Virgin Islands National Park.

There’s also at least one stingray out there – we spotted him close to that rock formation on the left in the photo above. Sadly, the only “waterproof” camera I own is my phone, and the water resistance of an iPhone is more “you can rinse it off if it gets dirty” than it is “lol spend an hour underwater.”

Blurry photograph of a deer at Virgin Islands National Park

We also spotted some more terrestrial wildlife; a deer stopped to enjoy the view, as well, just a few feet behind where we’d put down our towels on the beach.

Photograph of a tree-covered pathway next to the ruins at Cinnamon Bay in Virgin Islands National Park.

And, of course, what would a photography post of mine be without a picture of an aesthetically-appealing pathway?

  1. This has so thoroughly and immediately jumped up into my favorite songs ever list that I’m contemplating writing an entire post about it.
  2. For the right audience, this track is absolutely brutal.
  3. Watching a live performance video of this brought me back to undergrad and having a voice professor try to convince me of the importance of breath control; should’ve just shown me this video, honestly.
  4. I keep reading “stayinit” as code. stayinit
  5. A cover that I think I prefer to the original; sorry, a bit blasphemous, I know.
  6. Wishing this had the full lyrics available, because there’s at least one line in here that I want to know if I’m hearing right.
  7. Once again, blasphemously saying: I prefer this cover to the original.

Bad Blood – Allman Brown on Second Son, Pt. 1 – EP

  1. Sorry Usher, I’m just not as excited about your Super Bowl halftime show as I was about Rihanna’s.
  2. I’ve been told James Blunt has music that isn’t depressing as hell, but I have yet to hear any evidence of it.
  3. Usually I don’t put pure-instrumental stuff in this playlist, but I just enjoyed the title enough to give it a pass.
  4. Found because of the music video, which sure did give me some emotions, and then I found I quite like the song, too.

“slowdown”

We got snowed in recently. On the scale of being snowed in, it wasn’t particularly dramatic, but on the scale of being snowed in in Oregon it was a lot more than we’re ever really prepared for.

Anyhow, I decided that, what with all my weekend plans being canceled with prejudice, I might as well spend some time with Logic Pro on my iPad.1 And I actually wound up with something that I liked! So, after a several-year long gap I’ve now published a second single.

Part of the fun was that this was a one-day project. The title was really a reminder to myself, to slow down, enjoy the feeling of making something, and not get over my skis2 and try to make it perfect. And it, at least sorta, worked! Are there things I’d like to keep tinkering with and changing? Yes, of course. Am I going to let myself do that ad infinitum? No, I decided, I won’t.

Anyhow, give it a listen; I hope you’ll enjoy!

  1. Please don’t ask me how long it’s been on there. The answer, in combination with the fact that it is a paid subscription, is embarrassing.
  2. What, did you expect me to not make a single snow day pun? (Fun fact: the alternate title was “snowday”, but I was told that sounded ‘too cheerful’ for what this piece is.)

  1. Some spooky vibes spilling over from last month, but I dig it. Instrumentation kinda makes me think of the castle levels in Crash Bandicoot.
  2. “We’ll stay for good” is the point where I always find myself singing along. Maybe earlier, sure, but that’s the bit that I just can’t help myself on.
  3. Apparently I exclusively listen to James Blunt songs that sound kinda cheerful but have very sad lyrics.
  4. A whole album! I’m so happy about Yoste. Coincidentally, I did my Apple Music Wrapped thing and am wondering if it would tell me if I’m in the top 10 of his listeners on Apple Music, or if it caps out at top 100.
  5. The fact that he just wrote this song in both English and Spanish is wild. I do enjoy where the lyrics differ a little, though. Hero vs. Héroe has some good “that doesn’t mean quite the same thing!” moments.
  6. Extremely fun to sing along to. Do the accent!
  7. “Now I’m driving home/ And the sad part’s coming” is a weirdly familiar feeling — the comedown after spending time with people.
  8. This sound track was way better than it had any right to be.

  1. I love the chain of sampling necessary for this track to show up for me – it’s here because of the Imogen Heap, but boy is she ever at a remove.
  2. “They say pressure makes diamonds, how the hell am I still coal” is a good line
  3. This live album is excellent, I’m gonna have to keep an eye out for their next tour.
  4. Kinda convinced I’ve found a fred again.. side project here.
  5. I’m a big fan of this track, A+ lyrics once you tune in, and also just good for listening to.
  6. This is just a childhood jam for me
  7. Elderbrook feels rather autumnal to me. I don’t know if that makes sense, but it’s a thing.
  8. “Kill your demons, kill ‘em dead…” very sing-along-able
  9. Feels fairly Daft Punk, at least lyrically.
  10. I enjoy that every Thirty Seconds to Mars album has a significantly different feel than the previous.
  11. Extremely fall vibes
  12. In the playlist because my roommate’s Spotify put up a cover and it was not as satisfying to sing along to as the source material.

  1. This is the one that made me realize there’s Summer Vibes happening in this playlist. Yoke Lore just sounds like summer.
  2. Honestly, one of my favorite additions this month, and I really couldn’t tell you why.
  3. I don’t miss being in an a cappella group, you miss being in an a cappella group
  4. Very sing-along-able
  5. Does way too good a job sounding like classic UK rock for a song that came out this year.
  6. Watched the music video for this and thought “wow, Troye Sivan grew up and got horny.”
  7. A different vibe than the last time I was listening to C. Tangana, but I’m here for it.
  8. Barbie is a very good movie and you should go see it. If you’re mad about how Ken was portrayed: congratulations, that was the point!
  9. They’ve got a concert coming up here soon, I’m excited!
  10. This is one of the only albums that I occasionally just decide to listen to all the way through.
  11. Yoste, breaking my rule that “everything has to go through the normal process,” and instead skipping straight to being in the playlist on the first listen.

  1. Went to add this to my library after it showed up in a Fitness+ workout and saw that it was already in my library, so it got added to the playlist instead.
  2. Back in courtesy of “To Run” by Luca Fogale, above.
  3. Thorin Looks does one single every once in a while and they’ve all been pretty solid
  4. At this point I kinda just include covers of Frank Ocean tracks to annoy my friend Chase.
  5. Yes, the meme song is back in my head again
  6. This Brian Eno/Fred again.. collaboration is… precisely what you’d expect from a Brian Eno/Fred again.. collaboration. It’s great!
  7. If you pay attention to the lyrics, this song is very sad.
  8. Fun fact I saw while putting this together: my version of the track title here is wrong, the actual track title includes Unicode “force-left-to-right” characters at the start of the phone number.
  9. Far and away my favorite new song this month; I like the rest of the album, I love this one.
  10. Yoste continues to be great, and I continue to be very excited for his first full album.
  11. Seems to have disappeared off Apple Music since I added it, sad.
  12. Back in my head courtesy of Eat the Acid

  2. Of all the stuff in this new release, I think this is my favorite thing.
  3. Yoste is one of my favorite artists, so you’d better believe I am excited for him to release an entire album.
  4. Quite possibly my favorite addition this month, courtesy of my sister.

  1. Favorite addition this month.
  2. While I really like this track, I take issue with the way it was mastered, it’s too quiet.
  3. Took me until now to realize that the other Video Games in this playlist is a cover.
  4. I do like the occasional… whatever this genre is, but wow are the names a lot.
  5. There’s really a lot of that 80s synthwave stuff in this list.
