If you have the right audience social media can be a barometer for what is: cool, valuable, and of worth to others. It can let you know what connects, what is interesting, and what is needed in the world. But there is just so much stuff online that sometimes good things can slip through the cracks.
With that in mind I’ve decided to post a different kind of blog this week. A short, curated collection of the most interesting, popular, and impactful stuff I’ve put out in the last span; mixed in with some news about what’s coming up in the very near future.
This post is experimental so please feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments section. If enough people like it I may do more.
First things first. I have been working hard on the record and I am nearing the end. I am beyond pleased with it. It is sounding incredible and I honestly think it is by far the best thing I have ever made.
In case you don’t know, there is not going to be any marketing hoopla around it’s release. I am going to work on it until it is finished and on that day I am going to release it to my mailing list. No fuss, no muss, no trouble. You’ll get to hear it completed for the first time on the very same day that I do.
(If you want to hear it first but aren’t signed up yet don’t worry, you can remedy that easily here.)
In other news the nice folks over at Cultured Vultures recently published a really cool article about yours truly which offers genuine insight into: how I do what I do, why it works for me, and my future plans for world-domination. I highly recommend it.

I’ve always written poetry but have only just started posting it online (on my Instagram page.) Some people have recently gotten in touch since I started and asked if I’d be interested in publishing a collection sometime in the future. (if this is something you’d like then let me know.)
For now, here is one of my more popular poems from the last week or so:
And, not surprisingly I also post visual stuff there too. Here is an abstract photo I took that a lot of people seem to like:
If for some reason you don’t follow me on Twitter, then you probably don’t know that I am a legitimate ‘quote-whore’ ;-)
I find a great beauty in language and wisdom traditions and I read a LOT so I generally post at least one quote a day and it’s always interesting to see which ones get the biggest reaction. Last week, it was:
– I’m not really sure what the popularity of this tweet this says about my audience, but I suspect that it just proves my long-held assertion that they are a pretty fucking cool bunch.
As I said at the outset this is an experimental post. So if you: liked it, hated it, or just found it ‘meh’ then please let me know in the comments section just below. (I value all honest feedback and I have a thick skin, so don’t hold back either way.)
