My 2021 Musical Picks

2021 has been another unusual year. But, in 2021, the unusual started feeling a bit more “usual”. Whatever may be going on elsewhere in the world, music goes on. So, I made a list of my top 100 songs for this past year. Once again, I’ll remind that this doesn’t necessarily mean music released in […]

Happy Holidays

Dear family and friends, It’s been another usual year, but we now feel a lot more adapted to the abnormality (and things do seem to be normalizing a bit… 🤞). In any case, life goes on. We had a great year as a family. Lily is now 3 years old and more fun than ever. […]

My 2020 Musical Picks

2020 was a weird year. So many normal activities had to be canceled or postponed. However, listening to and discovering music could go on as usual. So, following tradition, I made a list of my top 100 songs for this (very odd) year. Note that while many of these song were released in the last […]

Happy Holidays!

Dear family and friends, Seriously. Is anyone else ready to be done with 2020? In truth, we really can’t complain. It’s actually been a pretty good year for us, in spite of all the curveballs this year has thrown us all.  We have all the usual gripes anyone could have, but we’re relatively lucky. Our […]

My 2019 Musical Picks

As I have done for quite a few years now, I’ve made a list of my top 100 songs of the year. Note that while many of these song were released in the last year (2019 or late 2018), there are some much older songs. The criteria isn’t necessarily that the songs be new (or […]

Happy Holidays!

Dear family and friends, It’s been a wonderful year of taking care of our (not-so-little anymore) Lily, who is now 17 months old! She’s really looking forward the holidays, and so are we! We hope you had a great year too and wish you an even better 2020! 🙂 Much love from us to you! […]

My 2018 Musical Picks

As I have done for many years now, I’ve assembled my top 100 songs of the year (other than last year’s failure, in which I only had a few over 50). This year, I’m back, with a full 100 songs. There are some good ones in here! While these songs were mostly released in the […]

Happy Holidays!

Dear family and friends, What a year! This year brought us a new member to our family. Our daughter, Lily Mae was born on July 14. We love her so much. She just keeps getting cuter and cuter as the days go by. We are enjoying our first holiday season with her and looking forward […]

Announcing… Berry!

That’s right… We’re expecting! Hằng and I are really excited to announce the newest member of our family, and his/her name is… Berry! Well, for now anyway. Berry is his/her “tummy-name,” which will serve as a stand-in until Berry is born. We’ve had a few official doctor visits and Berry is looking strong. Berry is due […]

My 2017 Musical Picks

Usually, I build a list of the top 100 songs I discovered that year. 2017 wasn’t a good year for that list. The music I did discover in 2017 was great, but there wasn’t enough of it. I only scraped together 52 songs this year. So, only a bit over halfway to my goal. My […]
