Because music is the best.

Music That Is Taking Me Through 2021

As a person, I tend to be late on media. I watch movies late, TV shows late (I just started Breaking Bad in 2021), and music is no exception. Because of that, I also tend to consume media that I already know and love a lot more than branching out.

This year, I've been trying to make an effort of opening up to new entertainment. With that, here is a list of albums that are new to me and the songs that I love from them.

1. "Alfredo" - Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist

This album came out in 2020, but is this my favorite album of the decade already?

Yes. Yes, it is. There is not a song on the entire project that I do not absolutely adore, and it was difficult to pick a favorite.

2. "Call Me If You Get Lost" - Tyler, The Creator

Genuinely, a future classic, if it's not a classic already.

3. "recently" - Liana Flores

The title track on this EP is so airy and beautiful. I find myself humming it all the time. Listen to the whole thing if you enjoy a mix of lofi and bedroom pop.

4. "Memories of the Heart" - Peter Hadar

The song I chose from the album is a song that reminds me of home. One day, after years of knowing this particular song, I sat down and listened to the full album.

I loved it so much, though, I still think my favorite on the album is First Sight. If you like R&B, this is a nice pick.

5. "2000" - Grand Puba

The album and this track, in particular, have everything that creates amazing rap: amazing beats, perfect flow, and lyricism.

6. "How I Do" - Res

I've never heard an album quite like it before. It blends rock and R&B in a way that I think is really, really special.

Thank you to my music gurus: Ben and my family. I hope this list showed you some new music!

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
