Monthly blog roundups recap all the content on the blog for each month. These posts provide an easy way to skim through content that interests you.
Welcome, everyone, to the recap of our August blogs. You may look at your calendars and say, “Mark, my friend, it’s September 12. We’re almost halfway through September. Why is this recap so late?” That, my dear reader, is an astute question. It actually has a very logical answer. A Greek philosopher (Plato, I believe) once coined a situation like this an, “Oopsie Daisy.”
I won’t bore you with the details, but life has a way of getting away from us sometimes, huh?
Anywho, I’m back with some music recs for you readers before we get to the sweet, sweet blogs we put out in August.

Finally, “Never Learned To Dance” by Medium Build is one that evokes the dissatisfaction of regret, but in a cathartic, even theraputic way. This is one of those songs that forms the backbone of a “laying in bed at night thinking about what could have been” soundtrack. Explicit content warning on this one:
Anywho, plugging my personal taste in music aside, here are the posts we put out in the month of August. Snowflake takes the cake with most blogs by topic, but don’t sleep on our other pieces.
