Among today's 90s finds. A working AM/FM walkman. A series of tapes my friends and I recorded of our hanging out in college, including "Drinking Party 4/19/97" and a Steve Miller Band decorative bathroom tile.
I was brought to a standstill at the liquor store this morning, wondering this morning whether bottles or cans were more environmentally responsible. Turns out, like most things, it depends (though cans generally have the edge).
This is a fairly old article but it does a good job of explaining the various factors that make up this particular "it depends."
Yesterday I brought home the contents of my Eugene, OR storage unit, which I loaded up in 1999, thinking I was going to return from the East Coast. This didn't happen, and as such I am in possession of what is essentially a time capsule from Past Me, a life that is no longer mine lovingly preserved.
There will be periodic updates as I uncover the mysteries of the 90s.
My new album is finally ready! Say hello to Such Wonders, 9 tracks of goodness. It will be available on Spotify, iTunes, etc in the next few weeks, but you can get a copy now on Bandcamp (and this helps me as I get a bigger share).
Huge thanks to Natasha Sorokin for the amazing cover art.
