  1. Creative Burnout, Rihanna, and What I Do Every Day.

    29 Jun 2015

    A quick note about creative balance. Lately I’ve found myself out of rhythm and heavily overwhelmed with work. I’ve revisited my college-esque all-nighter- food scattered - sporadic sleep routine and I’m sitting here wondering how the hell I got here. The movie version of my life shows me in meetings,…


  2. [ VIDEO ] LA Photoshoots | Behind The Scenes & Trip VLOG

    21 Jun 2015

    Last week my friends and I flew down to LA for a collab with City Approval. They did their media circuit and performed at The Mint LA while I drank tequila and ran around with my camera.  Here’s a behind the scenes video and some photos of our adventures out…


  3. People Who Inspire Me and What They All Have in Common

    06 May 2015

    My list of inspirational people is short. They range from dancers, to writers, to rappers, to painters, photographers, and directors. Some of them have traveled the world, been published in Rolling Stone, helped push no budget movies into Hollywood hits. But most of them haven’t. No blue check mark, No…


  4. Mo Money, Mo Problems | What VH1 Taught Us About Success and Happiness

    06 May 2015

    There is something dangerous going on. And it needs to stop. If VH1 has taught us anything, it’s that behind every rock star, every signing bonus, every booty poppin, champagne sippin, lambo whippin, chain hang to my ding-a-lang rags to riches story, lies an empty, sad human being who can’t…


  5. 5 Words To Help Navigate You Through Unexpected Change | The New Normal

    06 May 2015

    Growing up, I was in and out of the hospital with irregular heart-beat. Doctors said they were murmurs, but I always feared that the next time would prove them wrong. For years I believed I was on the verge of a heart attack. The verdict, as it turns out, was…


  6. 3 Minutes w/ Owuor Arunga [VIDEO]

    06 May 2015

    1 am. The server at Amante Pizza clears our table. Across from me sit two old friends, veterans in the music scene, of their neighborhoods at least. “Remember that one hook I had… the one where I said….” Something about riding a bicycle through town. In my fixie, riding down…


  7. Why I Don’t use the Dish Washer | Avoiding Resistance and Pending Processes

    06 May 2015

    The other day, my roommate and I got into a heated debate over dishes. I hand-wash my dishes. I did it when I lived alone, and I still do it now living with two other roommates. He argued that the dish washer was not only more energy efficient and time…


  8. Dream Chaser Syndrome: Understanding the Limitations of Your Personal Narrative

    06 May 2015

    Aaron Andrews Apparel I often stop and ask myself, Am I really working as hard as I think? Sure I’ve come a long way. Professionally, I’ve been published. I landed a job at a respected company. Outside of my career, I utilize my gym membership. I’m actively involved in a…


  9. Explosions and Onion Bins: Why Being A Pessimist is Sometimes Beneficial

    06 May 2015

    I smelled a gas leak. You know that smell. When someone at a house party leans against the gas knobs in the kitchen. Or the smell that follows the CLICK CLICK of the propane grill. But on this day at the sub shop that I worked at, we had not…


  10. I’m Back: Self Complexity and Living your Art

    18 Jun 2014

    It’s been over a year since my last blog post. To my After Hour Faithfuls I say these words, “I’m back.” But not in some vainglorious, prodigal son-esque, self proclaimed “return” to the blog world type of way; although the idea of redemption does play a role. Self redemption, at…


  11. THE AFTER HOUR? What the H?

    18 Jun 2014

    What the h*** does The After Hour even mean While the initial assumption is that I run some sketchy, NSFW operation, the name is actually a testament to how my journey began 2 years ago. In fact, the response is very positive once people actually decide to visit my website,…
