  • Music And Sports (And Learning That Music Doesn’t Always Win)

    Music and Sports

    “With music, you can’t lose.” For years, I used this statement to argue that music is better than sports. My dad, who works as the sports information director for a Division II college, never looked too far into the lie that I continually prodded him with over the past few years.

    Taking Back Sunday - 2014

    I feel a little bit sorry for Taking Back Sunday. Sure, I enjoy all of their records, love seeing the band live, and – just like they probably are – am overwhelmed by their fans’ uncompromising support, and all of that’s great on both sides. But ever since Tell All Your Friends came out in…

Still, critically speaking, the quintet has always…

  • What I Learned From Music In 2013

    What I Learned From Music In 2013

    2014 is already underway, but I can’t help but reflect upon the previous year in music. 2013 was an interesting year, that’s for sure. For me, music is growing more and more into this “big picture” that I imagine in my mind, where all of the artists who have ever been involved in my life…
