- Media List #6: The Money Where Your Mouth is Edition ()
“I Don’t Feel Like Buying Stuff Anymore” by Anne Helen Petersen for BuzzFeed News While we’ve opened back up society to a limited degree, some things may never be the same as they were. Thank god. It feels like so much has changed in just a few months. When all of this began, the minority […]
- William Tyler ()
As William Tyler wrote me for an interview in 2011, “I think anytime I find myself settling into a pattern of consistency I start panicking. So while, yes, there is a certain framework of tools and methods that you need in order to be able to do linear things like touring or even recording an album, […]
- Media List #4: Derecho Edition ()
While time moves slowly many days, life is happening too fast right now. Last Sunday in Nashville we had a big storm blow through knocking out power for upwards of 200,000 people. Not a tornado, which devastated spots of town and outlying areas just two months ago, but a “derecho.” “A derecho is a widespread, […]
- Remembering Cafe Coco ()
After some 27 years of business Cafe Coco is closing, to be reopened as one of Coco’s Italian Markets. Writing for the Nashville Post, William Williams succinctly summarizes the coffee shop/bar/restaurant/hang as “a Midtown institution of sorts popular with Vanderbilt students, health care workers and random bohemians and hipsters.” Owner Chuck Cinelli broke the news […]
- Recycling Lives on in Nashville (For Now) ()
I’m trying to place why I find the continued implementation of recycling programs so interesting. Thinking back a little, while growing up in Calgary we had recycling, but the majority of my memories surround the “bottle depot.” These were facilities around town that specifically took glass bottles, plastic bottles, and aluminum cans. When buying soda, […]

- Media List #3: Tennessee Pledge Edition ()
This week officials carved out the first crack at roadmaps to reopening the city and state. I say both city and state because Nashville is not included in Governor’ Lee’s plan, which has been dubbed the “Tennessee Pledge” by state officials (Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga will also rely on metro-centered plans for their re-opening strategies). […]
- Media List #2: Safer at Home Edition ()
I’ve been reading through a few long-saved bookmarks the past couple of weeks and one article, Olga Khazan’s “The Opioid Epidemic Might Be Much Worse Than We Thought,” brings to light information that I found incredibly poignant with regard to what’s happening right now. Her article focuses on the findings of a February 2020 report […]
- Media List #1: Bailout Edition ()
Jason Isbell’s Twitter account is one of the reasons I could find myself returning to the platform (update: turns out I did open a new Twitter account amid the pandemic); I’m ashamed to say I probably appreciate his tweets more than his music (which is no knock on his music). Then again, I don’t know […]
