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 […]

Happy Holidays!

Dear family and friends, As another year comes to a close, Hang and I want to send a quick word out to those we care about and wish you the best. We’ve had a great year, with a few trips including back to Austin and to Maine. Apart from our trips, life has been good […]

My 2016 Playlist

Every year, my brother and I share our list of top 100 songs discovered each year. My 2016 playlist is now ready on Spotify. Here is the link: Best of 2016 – My top 100 songs of the year. A bit about how it works… Every year, as I discover (or rediscover) a song I like, I add […]

Top Albums of 2016

Several years ago, inspired by Sound Opinions, I decided to start the tradition of making a yearly list of my favorite albums released that year (give or take a little bit). Here is my third annual list for 2016. Honorable Mentions AKA, a list of really solid albums that (also) should have made the top […]

Happy Holidays 2016!

Family and friends, Holiday greetings from Northwest Arkansas! 2016 has been a big year for Hang and I. It started with our new marriage. We were married on the last day of 2015 and started the New Year as husband and wife. We spent the first few months of the year figuring out how to […]
