Well, last week I missed sending something out. I recently crossed my goal of sending out a newsletter on a weekly basis for one year. I figured I'd give myself the week off and enjoy the islands of Bocas del Toro before having to move to LA. If anyone is
Boombotix's founder comes into focus this week. Boy, does he have a story to tell. If you missed last week's episode, read it here. Also, my bad for not getting this out on Saturday. I spent my Friday in the thermal baths of Papallacta. Highly recommend it if you ever
Alright, all one of the 63 people that read last week's episode let me know that they have found the writing for Garage Tales to be more boring. If you're feeling that, bare with me for a bit longer. Once I properly set the stage for Boombotix, we'll get into
One thing I realized with this batch of writing is that some episodes won’t exactly be self-contained stories with a defined beginning and end. Garage Tales (the third title in three weeks) is a longer, slower-moving story. More of like a memoir of my times at Boombotix. As such

What timing! Today's episode is about my dad and yesterday was Father's Day. I suppose this serves as a belated Father's Day post! Mustafa’s Note: For me, the point of a story is to elicit an emotion. That being said, I think the following story may elicit a negative
I'm still working on the final two episodes of Brown Boy Problems. If you missed a past episode of Brown Boy Problems, this is a great week to catch up on them. If you're of the ~55% of you that reads every episode and you want something to fill your
This episode is best consumed while high. It's 4:20 somewhere, right? I think? As a heads up, this episode will take a couple of minutes longer than an average episode. Give an extra 10-20 minutes if you decide to get stoned. Missed last week's episode? You can catch it
Well, there were a lot of you that liked last week's episode and wanted to hear more about the Coach Jones story. Due to word count, I didn't get to write everything I wanted to last week. I'm fairly sensitive about people getting to the end of each email before
This week we reach the end of this mini-arc within Brown Boy Problems. A nice little dash of racism before we move to the last couple of episodes of the season. Did you miss Episode 7? You can catch up on it here. As a heads up, this episode's word
