Well, it’s that time of the year:

The Cardinals, per usual, are back in the playoffs. Expect more Cardinals spamming across my future blogs and tweets. You’ve been warned.

If you can’t already tell, this blog post is going to be a bit all over the place. Bear with me.

Let’s start with music: As an engineer, I spend a lot of time doing homework and naturally need the right mixes of music in order to achieve maximum efficiency. It’s been a great week of listening for me, and I thought I’d share a few cuts from the Takeo (middle name) discography:

1) You should’ve seen this one coming. Drake’s one of the biggest in the game right now and he delivers on his latest release.

Like a potluck you better come with it

2) Nothing new here, but I rediscovered this jam over the course of the week and thought I’d remind everyone of the brilliance of Jai Paul.

3)And lastly, maybe a bit of a curveball, but Ariana Grande’s debut album was outstanding. Insane voice for someone her age. Don’t sleep on this one:

Besides music, this weekend has already been jampacked with friends, fun, and adventure. I had a blast at the ADPI Invite and got to hang out with my main man and roommate Gavin.

I also got to explore more of LA, making a stop at: The Last Bookstore (a personal favorite)

Additionally, for anyone interested in Science-Fiction type reading I highly recommend the short story by Isaac Asimov titled The Last Question. Until next time take care!
