Music: Paradise Circus (Gui Boratto Remix) by Massive Attack

This weekend was about playing catch up. I’ve been doing great with my Day Job, but fell behind with some of the school work for the semester.

Paradise Circus is a well known song from Britian’s Trip-Hop group Massive Attack and was done in collaboration with Mazzy Star’s Hope...

Music: Pork Chop Express (by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth)

I try to listen to music whenever I can. It serves as the soundtrack to the things I do, be it working out at the gym (when I go), writing up something or riding on the highway. Music can take the most boring task and turn it into something wonderful. I’ll share some of these now and then. Director John Carpenter is well known for both his movies and the music he’s created for them. Musically, I’ve always felt his...
