Goodbye Playlist

GoodbyePlaylist

It seems like most people don’t value music as much as they did in the past. They act like they don’t need it or like they don’t care about it. A large part of that mentality is due to how easily accessible music is these days. If you want music, you can just reach out […]

Bling Era Playlist

BlingEra

Rappers have arguably the biggest egos of anyone in the music industry, at least between the late 90s to mid 2000s when “Bling Rap” was at its peak. Entire songs centered around how big your car’s rims were, how much your pinky ring was valued and even about how much money you could invest in […]

Hate it or love it, 2016 is finally gone and 2017 is here to right some wrongs and deliver some brand-spankin’-new music for our listening delight. With that in mind here are some things coming down the pipeline that I think are worthy to keep your ears open for.

Indie Christmas Playlist

Spotify has a huge assortment of festive playlists. You can hear anything from LCD Soundsystem creating a Christmas tune to the classic Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. Maybe you’re looking for something that will help get you in the holiday spirit but you’re not really feeling the usual classics that are on repeat in the shopping […]

Carry On, My Wayward Son

A wise person once said, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” I may not know who this person was, but I agree full-heartedly with their statement because I’ve had a lot of fun writing for Creative Control Magazine. A year-and-a-half ago, I was accepted as an editorial intern on this website, and fifty-nine articles later, […]

Christmas Favorites

I have always loved the Christmas season, ever since I was a child. The snow (in some places), the bright red and green decorations, the quality time spent with family opening presents and watching countless Christmas specials—what’s not to love? Working in the customer service industry has shown me why some people aren’t as enthusiastic […]

Fall/Winter Playlist

It’s time again to say goodbye.   As the summer comes to a conclusion, it’s time to prepare for a change in the weather and the holiday season. What better way to get you in the Fall/Winter mindset than with a playlist?

Blue Playlist

June 14, 2016 – Two days after a man in Orlando killed 49 people in a gay-friendly nightclub called Pulse in Orlando. Like everyone I was shocked that an event like this could happen, but for some reason it didn’t hit me until that day. I don’t know if it was the eight hours of […]

Warped Tour 2016: Why Warped?

Summer festivals are shitshows. The food is expensive, people are under the influence of possibly multiple substances, and it’s hotter than the seventh circle of hell. Or maybe I’m getting too old to appreciate them. Regardless, I’ll never pass on seeing the Warped Tour. Warped 2008 popped my cherry and it was a religious experience. […]
