I’m in a reflective mood. Thinking back on my youth, there’s so much that, at the time, I wished I could do. Looking at my life now, I think I’m right where I want to be in terms of who I am and what I am doing with my life.
It’s funny. You think about all the restrictions there are in life; I’m finding that I have more freedom as an adult to do what I want when I want to do it than ever before. I guess that’s the benefit of being an unburdened 30-something without kids.
This week’s playlist again includes a lot of new stuff, from a few phenomenal covers including Iron & Wine playing George Michael and Hey Marseilles covering Daniel Johnston, to a pair of older tracks from one of my all-time favorite artists, Acid House Kings.

There it is, the playlist. The above photo was taken Saturday night. Homemade pizzas like this have become a staple in our meal rotation. They’re made on a frozen gluten-free crust we pick up at the local Co-op.
Slather on a little butter, add ingredients and bake for 15 to 20 minutes and you get perfection. This one is sauceless and features steak, spinach and mozzarella. We add some chilled Francesco Rinaldi spaghetti sauce as dip on the side.
