Here’s a Little Halsey, Best Dance of the 2010s, and Best Dance of 2019

 Modified: December 23, 2019 at 5:25 am

With the close of the decade upon us, I noticed while listening to Spotify recently that they have made tribute playlists for the best of songs in different categories. As I was listening to one of these, the “mint Presents… Best Dance of the 2010’s (the link opens in a new tab) playlist station by Spotify on Spotify, I remembered Halsey’s songs that I’ve liked recently that I’ve heard in 2019 and previously.

Friedrich Nietzsche and his “God is dead” Quote

 Modified: October 18, 2019 at 1:28 pm

Philosophize This’s episode ninety, “Nietzsche pt. 1 – God is dead and so is Captain Morgan  (the link opens in a new tab), is the first in the rest of the Nietzsche section (a four-part episode section of episodes 90, 91, 92, and 93) has really struck a great chord with me while listening to the show. I did a quick Google search for “where does the ‘God is dead’ quote by Nietzsche come from” and found the textbook Nietzsche wrote the quote in. In this time between undergraduate and master’s, I am adding this book that the quote comes from to my to-read list: The Gay Science  (the link opens in a new tab).
