My Favorite Album of 2017: 4 Your Eyez Only – J. Cole

Beautiful, insightful and heart breaking are three words I would use to describe J Cole’s best album 4 Your Eyez Only.

Let’s Talk About: My Inexplicable Excitement for Blade Runner 2049

Thanks to a man who accidently stumbled on the other side of the world 500 plus years ago, I’ve got a 4-day weekend! And in this 4-day weekend I plan to do a couple things: 1) catch up on some blogging and blog myself 2) do some work (not really) and 3) watch freaking BladeContinue reading “Let’s Talk About: My Inexplicable Excitement for Blade Runner 2049”
