#SkwarerutzProject - No. 016 - Playin' catch-up!

#BaqBeet
#StayTuned
This is a blog about my life before I made a big move recently. I haven't released a blog in a while due to life being busy. So, I'm going to kick it back into gear with this one to catch you all up! Written on Nov 29th -- Wow, it has been such a busy month. Between the launch of The Skwarerutz Project, 3 improv shows and a handful of days working at the Speakeasy in addition to my day job, I have been trying my best to continue on t...

“You know there is a pathway to my place. It’s called ecstasy. For two lovers tonight, it’s only right that we -- exercise our right to all our fantasies. Scapegoat, we can float baby. Now, let it be.” First time I heard of Michael Franco is when I went to a show over at FUBAR in Saint Louis to see Franco-Hill. After this, I had decided to check him out on Soundcloud. I must say that it didn’t take long before I realized how talented...

"We don't want no trouble, just wanna get you open with this 'feel good' music -- take it to bar-b-ques and house parties -- good vibes in the spirit of Bob Marley..." Such a slick ass track. I picture myself driving -- I don’t want to get too cliche, but the prime time to start this track is right before you kick your feet up. Just like the name of the song suggests, this track is a tall glass of lemonade, or cognac on the rocks ...

Prologue V Release is just around the corner! In the spirit of preparing for the Prologue V Release in January, I would like to uncover some gems from the extensive collection of Far Fetched tracks available on the Far Fetched Bandcamp. I have been self-proclaimed as the biggest Far Fetched fan out there. What I would like to do is provide people with a way to learn about what Far Fetched has been providing for the past 5 years to th...

It is 10 days before the show. I just got back from practice. Unfortunately, we have all been recovering from sickness, life changes and etcetera. Tonight was especially fun because it was the first time that I had done any improv in 2 weeks. And boy, did I need an opportunity to let loose! We had another night of coaching with one of our friends from the improv community in Saint Louis, Brian, sit in on one of our practice sessions ...

I would have never thought in a million years that I would get the opportunity to perform at the City Museum in Saint Louis, MO. I have visited the City Museum a handful of times in my life. Each visit, I would spend most of my time running around, climbing on things, swinging from the rafters, etc. I have only been here once since I have been of legal age to consume alcoholic beverages. On October 29th, this Thursday, we at Not Qui...

Lyrics? Who needs them when Pretty Girls Like Dope Beats? HA! Abnormal, one of my favorite instrumental electronic musicians I know, especially when he is playin’ live. It gets pretty ridiculous. His style of putting together these crazy sounds with such solid beats is an undeniable style. Between the ambient samples and the intricate riffs, I would most definitely say that this is a recipe for one of the most interesting soundtracks...

#SkwarerutzProject - No. 013: From the BaqBeet's Playlist Blog #BqBtzPly
This beat goes so hard. What does this mean? It means that I can listen to this song a hundred times and still want to hear it a hundred more times. A track brought to you by one of my favorite live performers, Centipede of Far Fetched and featuring Mir. You know, I am not used to hearing Centipede spit a verse. But after hearing “Aldebaran (Live Life),” hearing some more lyrics from Centipede is something that I can get used to. Th...

“Couple thousand stickers and a loose plan. Every egg golden, but you never see that goose land. Chosen one since the roaches and food stamps. Dollar for the homeless, an icepick for a mooched hand.” Just a few lyrics from the hit single on the Prologue IV compilation that goes by the name “Lift Up” by 18andCounting and Centipede. Honestly, this is my top pick from this volume of the Prologue series. This track goes hard from the sta...

How does cooking with your loved ones improve your relationship? This was the question that was brought up by my lovely girlfriend Shannon when we first started comparing information on each of our regular diets. Shelani’s Kitchen is the brain-child of our mutual love of finding new and innovative recipes that are easy on the stomach and easy on the wallet. Since becoming a pescatarian, I have treated fish as my “cheat-meat.” In addi...
