For those of you that haven't been blessed to know the existence of Mac Demarco, he is a Canadian singer-songwriter classified in the "indie-rock" genre. I first discovered him at the beginning of the summer and the first song I listened to is called "Chamber of Reflection", which is his most popular one. That is one of my favorite songs, but I want to let the world know about many of his not so popular songs, that are unique in their own way. If you do know Mac, you probably do know "Chamber of Reflection" or even "Ode to Viceroy". I'm here to unleash a few songs that you might have never heard of and will be music to your ears.

1. "Freaking Out The Neighborhood"

"Freaking Out The Neighborhood" is off of Mac's '2' album. The intro is so groovy and gives me total ~70s~ vibes. The guitar throughout the song and the drums that come in during the verses make me bop my head until it falls off. Guaranteed to make you get up and bust a calm move! (Don't go too hard though)

2. "Passing Out Pieces"

"Passing Out Pieces" is off of Mac's 2014 album, "Salad Days". This is a song I look at the window to when I'm in the car or traveling long distance. I think about life and make sure nobody takes advantage of me..."passing out pieces of me, don't you know nothing comes free?" I think this song is enjoyable because everyone can relate to it and it has a funky beat.

3. "Without Me"

OK, seriously, if you haven't heard this song, open up Spotify and listen to it once, twice, three times...just keep it on replay. The first time I heard Without Me, off of Mac's album "Another One", I cried. Yup. It's such a sad song and will get you in your feels, but it is so WORTH IT... "Will she love me again tomorrow? I don't know, don't think so, and that's fine, fine by me
as long as, long as I know she's happy, happy." UGH!!

4. "Peperroni Playboy"

This song is off of the "Salad Days" demos, and I never thought I would like it or be obsessed with it...because it has no lyrics. I put this song on when I'm laying in bed or when I need a tune to keep me going while studying. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be the beat of a song but was never actually released. Anyway, give it a listen and let the song to the talking...even though there are no lyrics. Use your imagination!!

There you have it. I hope you fall in love with Mac Demarco as much as I did when I first gave him a listen. Enjoy!

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
