What does “Hamilton” and December 2nd, 2016 have in common?

It’s the day that “The Hamilton Remix” album came out. Now to being with, I was already a Hamilton fan to being with, and I already owned the original cast recording album, and I’ve put my name into the Hamilton lottery every day since about March and have yet to win tickets, but then I purchased the album because, “Hamilton” of course.

Normally, when I buy an album and haven’t heard any songs from it, I always give it a courtesy listen the first time around and usually the second listen and beyond that, I start nitpicking. Well, I fell in love with all the songs and that’s normally not a huge problem for me, but then after listening to song number six on the album, “Satisfied”, I just absolutely lost it. On the remix album, “Satisfied” is sung by Sia (que the angels singing), Miguel and Queen Latifah. While Miguel is only briefly in the song as our dear Alexander Hamilton, Queen Latifah does the song justice during her rapping solo, but can we just please talk about Sia? Sia is coming off from pretty much an amazing year with a highly successful summer tour and an even more successful album, but being a part of this compilation album, has to be the pinnacle of her year. Singing as Angelica Schuyler, her voice just drips with so much emotion that the song gives off, that it literally gave me goosebumps when I first listened to it. But the one major thing that this song does, is that it gives me so much adrenaline that it’s the perfect song for me to listen to at the gym when I’m running on the treadmill or when I’m planking and I don’t want to think about how long I’ve been holding myself up for.

Don’t get me wrong, everyone that’s on the album was fabulous. You can’t get any better than The Roots, Shockwave, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kelly Clarkson (who was drop dead amazing!), Jill Scott, Wiz Kalifa, Ja Rule and Ashanti, and the list literally goes on. Lin-Manuel really out did himself and as of recently, he’s been hinting at a Volume 2 of this album, but let’s hope “A Winters Tale” ends up on the next volume because that’s one of the best songs on the cast album, in my opinion of course.

So, Lin-Manuel, I know that you’re busy with “Mary Poppins” and the fact that “Moana” just came out, but you need to get on top of Volume 2. Don’t disappoint, you never do.

Remember, history is watching you.

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.
