Best Albums of 2015

2015 was an amazing year for music. As is our annual tradition, here are my favorite 50 albums from this past year. They’re all awesome.

Best Albums of 2014

Initially when I sat down to reflect on the music of 2014, it didn’t seem very memorable. I didn’t spend quite as much time listening to music this past year due to an uptick in my podcast listening. However, after looking back through my various sources, I remembered loads of great stuff. I discovered many new artists and […]

My Favorite Albums of 2013

It’s time for my annual blog post! This year my list started out with 98 potential albums. These are albums that I’ve listened to (and enjoyed) at least 5 times throughout the year. I slowly narrowed the list down during the past week and I’m pretty happy with the finalized list. If you’d like to […]

The Top 50 Albums of 2012

I really, really love music. I listened to a ridiculous amount of new music over the past year. As the year progressed, I started listening to less electronic/bass music and started listening to more indie/dream pop and hip-hop music. I listened to a lot of new artists and re-discovered some old favorites. To pick my favorite […]

With great services like Spotify and iTunes Match recently released, I found myself listening to music constantly. I continued to explore new genres and, as […]

The Art of FLIGHT

I’ve always been a huge fan of action sports films. There’s just something magical about watching some of the best athletes in the world travel to incredible places, ski/bike/ride ridiculous lines, and hit enormous jumps. It’s exciting to me because I can relate to the emotions they must be feeling, and I can appreciate the […]

P90X: Day 730

This coming Monday will be exactly 2 years since starting the P90X workout program. I first heard about the workout DVDs from a friend and later discovered that they were quite popular on late night infomercials. I decided to try it out and quickly realized that this was the real deal. This program is intense […]

Downhill Mountain Biking in Snowshoe, WV

Two weeks ago a couple friends and I headed up to Snowshoe Bike Park in WV for a weekend of downhill mountain biking. This was my first trip downhilling, but I generally do 3-4 days of cross-country mountain biking each week. The allure of downhill biking is a combination of lift access, big bikes, speed, […]

Making That Perfect Cup of Coffee

Over the last month or so I’ve been on a quest to create the perfect cup of coffee. I’m definitely not there yet, but I think I’m headed down the right path. As a Software Engineer, it’s absolutely critical that I have a good supply of tasty coffee (and, good coding music) in order to […]

Introducing The New PSSC Website

As some of you know, I am the web developer behind the Penn State Snowboard Club (PSSC) website. I built the site from the ground up 3 years ago when I was attending Penn State. The website has evolved a lot since then and has signed up over 1,200 users. The past couple months I […]
