This is some good fucking news.

“Today is going to be a joyful moment. For all the pain, for all the criticisms, a joyful moment for the Black women who led a movement to get one of their sisters home. This was a grassroots movement. They had to push to get male athletes, to get us to take it seriously, but they have triumphed.”

CNN political commentator Van Jones


For a minute I thought I’d do one of those “write something everyday in December” things, but then last night I was exhausted and was in bed by 8pm on a Friday night, so that’s out the window. But whatever!

We are not robots.

I asked a friend recently, “how are you being a good manager to yourself?” And for me, that’s been giving myself lots of freedom and flexability in my freelance work. I don’t mean missing deadlines, but more like, if I feel like I need to take a walk, or a bike ride, or leave something for tomorrow, I do it now. Fuck it.

Finishing work is actually never finished. Somehow there’s always more tomorrow, and well, I’m not a machine. I need rest, I need hobbies, I need to not work.

So missing a day in the month of December, 2022 is not the end of the world.


With everything going on with social media lately, it’s been a good time to step back and be mindful of how I spend my time online. I’ve been opening up Twitter on my phone or computer since 2006, so it’s a habit I need to break. In the past week I’ve been digging through more dark ambient and drone music on Bandcamp, and that’s how I got this new mix out.

For the full track listing, head over to the Mixcloud page.

I sort of can’t believe I’ve been making these for two years now, the first one uploaded on May 4th, 2020.
