Recently, I finally started compiling some old school funk, soul, and disco sets that, … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Mixcloud Catch-up

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Living the Dream Part 13 (Time)

Everything these days is done against the clock. We’re all waiting for the time that something starts or ends. If not then we’ve got something on a timer. I’ve started running recently and, even though I’m doing it solely for fitness, I’ve still taken to timing myself. We’re all obsessed with time.

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Breaking Bad Review

WARNING: Contains mild spoilers! If there’s one thing I hate it’s people banging on incessantly about TV series that they think I should definitely watch.

Confidant (Flash Fiction)

Quiet music plays in the background. It’s a self-made compilation of slow funk and soul music with a smattering of jazz-fusion. My ears register that a Donald Byrd track is currently playing, though my attention is primarily drawn the way of the other person in the room who is talking. They’re talking great sense.
