  • An Ode to the iPod Classic

    iPod Classic

    Every year when Apple gives their keynote address, the hullabaloo is always about the new stuff. The new iPhone, the new iPad, the new operating system. If a product’s thinner, slicker, has a white apple logo on it, and is even slightly different from its last incarnation, it’s guaranteed to have the Apple fanboys –…

Back in 2012 when I was still in high school, I discovered alternative rock band Bear Language on YouTube, who were just starting out in Boston, and I followed them until the release of their first LP.
