My most prevalent concern is becoming stagnant. In college, there was always something to look forward to, always something to aim for. A great party, a miserable term paper, going home for a week — there was always something in sight. I fear post-college is an endless tunnel. The only thing I can think to do about this is to keep moving. The only thing I can think to do is keep living and try to progress and change whenever possible, as frequently as possible. Stay in touch with friends, visit whenever possible, be open to love but don’t obsess over it, make a little bit of money, stay alive.

spencer radcliffe // my song

I met this guy on the street he said some things that really messed with my head I said “how you livin?” He said “living like the living dead” I said “that’s dope” and then immediately regretted it I owed him sympathy I guess I was indebted to him he said “do you believe in procreation?” He lived a sanctioned life you see I said “yes, I suppose, but mostly recreationally” 
Winter sucks and it feels like you’re constantly giving up below zero cold wind hit me like an uppercut but I’m not the type of dude to get pissed off about some ice in fact I give me two thumbs up I’m “very nice” borat quote has you reconsider listening twice healthy guy vegetables whole wheats and hella rice and if the price is right I’ll gladly spend three days two lonely nights at a holiday inn switching on and off the lights and that’s how you get you’re money back mini bar prices hit me like a heart attack but I’d much rather have in my hand a tiny bottle of jack than old paper and plastic cards with my name etched into the back 
On the phone asking room service where the party’s at

this is probably my favorite song of the year

ATHENS, OHIO: DIY’s Hidden Gem

There’s a line in a The World Is A Beautiful Place song called “Gig Life” that goes, “Not sure where I’ll be next, maybe Texas or Athens, OH, Philadelphia, PA.” More likely than not, the majority of listeners were thinking, “Where in the hell is Athens Ohio… and why the hell is a band from Connecticut singing about it?” Athens happens to be the home of Ohio University, a frequented tour stop for any band starting out in the DIY punk scene. I know it sounds hard to believe, and obviously Athens does not get visited as much as the essential DIY scenes like Philly or Scranton or Brooklyn. I mean, how could it? It is middle of nowhere southeastern Ohio, but somewhere in the middle of the middle of nowhere big things are happening. Athens truly is the hidden gem of the DIY scene.

song 54 is one of my favorite songs i’ve gotten to post here and i’ve been saving it for a little while for whatever reason - i was going to post it earlier but then my power went out for a while. it’s back now, luckily, so i can do this.

this song is another by spencer radcliffe and like the last one it’s under his own name. it would probably feel at home on his last album ‘sinking down' which is really incredible and, fittingly, pretty dark. 

but this song stands alone really, really well and it might be my favorite song spencer’s done - at least under his own name, it’s hard to compare this kind of stuff to his blithe field work, which is amazing but also very, very different.

this song is called ‘too late’.
