California Dreamin’ and stuff

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally heading to California for a month to look at different opportunities there… and have a little bit of fun. I’ll be in the Los Angeles and Anaheim area from March 9th – 30th, and I’m pretty damn excited about it. There is literally no happier place than Disneyland, and gosh darn it, I will spending 12 days there. Then I’m off to Hollywood for the rest of the trip. My friend Blake may be joining me on this adventure, which will make it 110x better.

In other news, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my favourite singers, Mr. Scott Helman a couple of nights ago. He was just as charming as I gathered he was from our interview last December. He’s not only a genuinely nice dude, but he’s a tried-and-true talent. I really hope I get to work with him someday.

ALSO: I am officially verified on Facebook which is incredibly cool. Now I just have to do something worthwhile of being verified. I guess they liked my website. My page has approximately 0 likes, so you can go like it if you want! I’ll like you a lot if you do it. Here’s the link.

Anyway, hope all is well with everyone, and I probably have some new interviews coming up — so stay tuned!

Happy New Year!

My sincerest apologies for not having posted anything else before 2015’s arrival, but as I’m sure you’re all aware, the holidays are a busy time for almost everyone. I hope you all (except for that lady who stole my money at the Skytrain station) had a lovely time, no matter what you were celebrating.

Regardless, I’m beyond excited about this new interview because after discovering his existence, I immediately considered him one of my favourite artists, right alongside Jake Bugg. I suppose these two are somewhat similar; given the fact that they’re both first and foremost about the music, and if fame and fortune decide to follow, well, that’s purely a bonus. I can’t even begin to imagine what would happen if we put them in a room together. Just kidding. I know exactly what would happen: the heavens would open up and sweet, sweet musical babies would be made.

Plus, the more and more I learn about Scott Helman, the more I want to be his best friend. He’s not too keen on 80’s pop (nobody’s perfect) but the fact remains that it doesn’t stop him from having a Duran Duran dance party — and that’s a very important thing. And let’s be honest, Duran Duran is the only 80’s pop group that truly matters. Anyway, I really hope you guys enjoy the interview and will pick up a copy of Scott’s EP, Augusta, which, in my humble opinion is probably one of the greatest things to come out of 2014. It’s ideal for evening dance parties on the roof of your apartment building with friends (I know this from experience).

Love you guys!
