May recap: Look, Ma, I've improved! 🥹

Hey Reader, I can't believe it's already June. The first few months of 2024 went by just like that. BUT, the good news is that the noisy construction works going on outside and around my house have mostly ended. (I complain about them here and here if you want more details.) So, I'm generally not plagued by noise issues anymore. Thankful. If you're new here: At the start of every month, I recap the cajon videos I released the month before. (Which is, erm, nothing for May, but I'll share some...

Hey Reader, Is it going to be May already?! Where did April go?? Time seriously flies. If you're new here: At the start of every month, I recap the cajon videos I released the month before.

Hey Reader, Hope you've been well! Unless you're one of the bots that spammed my email sign-up form this month, that is: Seriously, I'd love to get 1,000+ signups in a couple of weeks, but bots are NOT welcome. 😒 If you're new here (and not a bot): At the start of every month, I recap the cajon videos I released the month before.

Hey Reader, February feels like it flew by! I'm amazed by how the days just seem to blur together. This year is a leap year, so we'll get one extra day of February to enjoy this Thursday—and then we'll be diving into March!

Hey Reader, The first month of 2024 is already almost over! Time flies. Over where I'm at, it rained almost every day (which did not help with my filming situation—more on that shortly). But the sun is starting to come back, which means the rain won't get in the way of my filming BUT it also means more heat. Guess you can't have your cake and eat it too 🥲 If you're new here: At the start of every month, I recap the cajon videos I released the month before. Because we all know how the...

Hey Reader, HAPPY NEW YEAR! We're now into 2024 and I hope you had a blast counting down the end of 2023! For me, I stayed home to watch TV and went to bed soon after the clock struck midnight. LOL.

Cajon cover: That's Not How This Works by Charlie Puth ft. Dan + Shay

Hey Reader, It's now December! Cue "My December" by Linkin Park, because I like the "This is my December / This is my time of the year" lines in it. Even though the song is ultimately an emo one and not reflective of how December is my favourite time of the year lol.

Cajon cover: Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood

Hey Reader, So, I typically send these recaps on the first Tuesday of the new month. But if I were to follow this rule for November, I'd end up sending this email on November 7. Which felt a bit late to me, hence I'm sending my October recap on Halloween 🎃 If you're new here: At the start of every month, I recap all the cajon videos I released the month before. Because we all know how the algorithms are unpredictable and don't always show us posts from people we follow even though we've...

Cajon cover: September Song by JP Cooper

Hey Reader, It's October! Which is typically Halloween season, and I've already had some scares from working in HDR and trying to figure out a new digital audio workstation (DAW) software last month. More about my HDR woes later, but I'd like October to be less technically eventful, thank you very much :') If you're new here: At the start of every month, I recap all the cajon videos I released the month before.

Cajon cover: Lavender Haze by Taylor Swift

Hey Reader, It's September, so WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDSSSSSS *cough* I am writing this newsletter while doing a mass upload of my iPhone media to Google Photos. Because I am once again out of storage space, which means I can't film new covers 🙃 But after trying all sorts of methods, this Google Photos one I'm trying now may finally help me dramatically—and easily—free up space. (How ironic...using a Google solution to back up an iPhone because Apple itself doesn't offer any good...
