Here's a new playlist I've been wanting to share.

Eight wistful melodies capturing the essence of "Saudade", that deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. The dreaming or longing for a far-off person or long-lost land, but not a specific someone or somewhere we can name. It may even seem as a longing for a someone or a something that does not exist but was always intended.

I hope you like it!

57,455 tracks played in just over 6 years. And that's just the ones tracked.
That's a little over 26 tracks, or roughly two albums worth, every single day for 2,196 consecutive days.

Feel free to add me at last.fm/user/may_uprising!   :)

If I felt that breaking the windows of your business, or destroying your car - or even attacking a police officer - was the ONLY way for my voice to be heard regarding persistent systemic inequality perpetrated against myself, my family, or my community...then so help me God, I would BREAK your windows, and I would DESTROY your car, and yes, even ATTACK a police officer.

When I said I loved you I lied

I love the way the sunset sky is awash with color.
The ocean makes my breath catch at the unbroken expanse.
But those glories of nature dim in the glow of you.


Sometimes I haven't the words 
to say how your smile is art,
and those four letters seem to small
to capture the joy you put in my heart.

LOVE is just a concept,
paltry in the way it misguides.
What I feel is so much stronger.
so when I said I loved you I lied.


If I were a hot summer day you'd be my cool breeze.
If I were a lazy Sunday nap you'd be the sunbeam on my back.
If I were a hug round your neck you'd be the embrace in return.


Sometimes I haven't the words 
to say how your smile is art,
and those four letters seem to small
to capture the joy you put in my heart.

LOVE is just a concept,
paltry in the way it misguides.
What I feel is so much stronger.
so when I said I loved you I lied.

This place is the real deal. The people at the shop clearly have a love of music and great gear. I brought in an early seventies Marshall half stack and they gave me a very acceptable price for it. The shop is clean, with a wide variety of guitars, bass guitars, amps, and accessories. If you love guitars, and you want to buy local, you can't go wrong with The Guitar Syndicate.

Jason is one of the most passionate photographers I've ever met, and it shows in both the way he works and the images he creates. He is singularly able to capture the most emotive glimpses of moments both joyful and dramatic. You'll be glad to have the chance to work with Jason.

My wife and I have come here about once a month for over a decade. It's our favorite Chinese restaurant in town. The host, Tat, is always very friendly and accommodating.

Conrad's is an excellent steakhouse. My wife and I ate there for the first time tonight and it was a very good experience. The dining room is comfortable and masculine, but not overbearing. Our server, Bobby, was attentive and friendly without being annoying. My wife had the filet of beef and I had the 12oz Kansas City strip. Both were prepared extremely well and were quite juicy , and the wait was very minimal. They apparently make a point to serve seasonal foods, and the garden salad and vegetable medley were both evidence that they make things fresh. The beer list is nicely complete, and the oatmeal stout was quite a companion to my steak. We followed up our meal with a slice of decadent chocolate cake, baked fresh earlier today. Bobby even gave us a free slice of cake to take home and enjoy later. If you enjoy Hereford House, but prefer a slightly more casual dining experience I would definitely recommend Conrad's.
