The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Jazz - the only music worth listening to.

Bold title, I know. But at the end of the day, the only albums I feel like I cannot exhaust to the point of being tired of them are my jazz albums. Specifically Thelonious Monk. I have been a Monk fiend lately. I cannot stop listening to him. I’ve been noticing heavy influences from jazz in my art lately as well, and that’s fine by me. I’m no jazz expert and I’ll be quite honest, my love of jazz does not go back very far, it is actually fairly recent, within the last 2 years or so. But I cannot for the life of me think of any better music to work to than jazz, especially if you sit at a computer all day. I don’t know, is it just me? I could listen to Monk’s “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” or Coltrane’s “Like Sonny” on repeat for hours and probably not get bored. This goes hand-in-hand with my love for bookstores too…just the most relaxing thing to me, bookstores and jazz. I know it sounds super artsy fartsy but whatever, I can talk about whatever I want on here and you can’t stop me. What do you think about that, huh? Well anyways, there’s not much of a real point to this, except to maybe encourage some people to check out some new music. And that’s that. Link below to my favorite album…
