Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein during the summer without sun. What monstrosity will you birth? During a year without smiles, only masks. If history remembers 2020 for one thing, may it be that there was never a time more ripe for a KILLER good horror story.

Hello, friends. I hope you are staying healthy during this trying time. Nourishing your creativity, and your relationships. I know it’s not easy!
I wanted to share with you some exciting news. I have begun work on a new montage project. And it is undoubtedly my most ambitious project yet. It will probably take me many more weeks, or even months to complete.
Kacey Musgraves’, Golden Hour (2018) is a pop / country-rock music gem. It’s no wonder it took home 4/4 grammy awards, including album of the year. Its a hit reel chalk-full of rhythm, melody, and beautiful vocals that will put you at ease wherever you are, whatever you are doing.
What I like most about the album is Kacey’s endearing concern for mother nature, which shines through in songs like “Oh, What a World,” and “Love is a Wild Thing.” She exudes a rock-legacy attitude of peace, love, and understanding that colors the entire album. Her lyrics are innocent, organic, and honest all at the same time.
Kacey is open about her experimentation with psychedelics, and their influence on her songwriting on this album. She feels they have brought her closer to nature, and have allowed her to feel greater sympathy, for her Mother, for example. And yes, she wrote a song about that on this album.
I made a music video to go along with track #6 – “Love is a Wild Thing,” drawing footage primarily from the beautiful Nature Show, “Our Planet” and also the documentary, “Take Me Anywhere,” and feature films, “American Honey,” “Into The Wild,”
I rigged it so that Shia LaBeouf plays host (of sorts) giving us a tour of Mother Nature in sync with the music. Check it out if you’re interested. I hope you find it relaxing. 🌍🌅☮️👀🏔🌼🌸🐝🐸💓🐴🐠💛🎩🎉🌄🏄🏻♀️
COPYWRITE DISCLAIMER: Love is a Wild Thing was written and produced by Daniel Tashian, Ian Fitchuk, and Kacey Musgraves. It appears on Kacey’s Grammy Award-Winning album, “Golden Hour” (2018) Label: MCA Nashville

Several years ago I took an un-announced vow of silence. Blog posts ceased, I stopped sharing my opinion (or anything much at all) on social media, and I’d even go as far as to say I stopped having meaningful conversations with my friends and family.Continue reading “Silence is Golden”→
Sean and I both saw Joker at TIFF last month, at back to back screenings. We met up for lunch afterward (I believe we had a slight pause before seeing the Harriet Tubman movie) because boy did I have thoughts, comments, and questions, which I tried not to yell too loudly because: spoilers.
