A Night At The Opera – Queen

After seeing Bohemian Rhapsody, I decided to take a closer look at one of Queen’s best albums, A Night at the Opera. This album was very ahead of its time in 1975, and it wasn’t cheap. At its release it was the most expensive rock album ever made, estimated cost was £40,000, which today isContinue reading “A Night At The Opera – Queen”

From front to back, Anderson drives through currentContinue reading “Oxnard – Anderson .Paak”

Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life

It’s so painfully hard to even begin conceptualizing putting 3 hours of pure love into a 600-1200 word blog post. The statement “A Celebration of Life” is only the framework of what this beautiful memorial of Mac Miller turned out to be. What I watched was better described as a three-hour collaboration of eighteen beautifulContinue reading “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life”

White Bronco – Action Bronson

Award-winning chef, actor, TV host, author, and rapper. The list probably goes on but if you came across Action Bronson on the streets of Queens, he is most likely the last person you would associate any of these terms with. The big, bearded ginger is not what most people would expect of a rapper, however,Continue reading “White Bronco – Action Bronson”

Geography- Tom Misch

I’m so proud to be able to not only talk about but really get into the international treasure that is Geography. I say international because the man who created this masterpiece was born and raised in London.
