Fleet Foxes

Epic Albumz | Fleet Foxes: Fleet Foxes

My relationship with Fleet Foxes began with a blind date.

I was 19. A year before, I had moved from the city of Charlotte to the bigger city of Chicago. From there I had come to a small town in central Virginia just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Still reeling with culture shock and trying to find my place, I was sitting alone in a common area of my college studying. Out of nowhere, I was interrupted by a random guy I’d never seen before asking if I’d like to go on “The Great Date ‘08” with him. He explained that his roommates had challenged each other to find someone they don’t know and treat them to a group date involving home-cooked food and go-karts.

Epic Albumz | Lady Gaga: The Fame Monster

They say music that ends up staying with you that you started listening to around high-school/college age, so essentially your late teens to early twenties. I started thinking about “albums” or “tracks” around this age that moved me and honestly they are probably right. (“They” is essentially the music industry people who honestly only create music for a certain age group now.) The music I listen to now was definitely shaped by my 19-year-old self. I guess ‘they’ were right.

7 eCommerce Web Design Trends We're Seeing So Far in 2020

There is no doubt that 2020 has been an interesting year so far, to say the least, specifically due to COVID-19 and its impact on the economy as a whole. Many brick and mortar stores are going out of business due to lack of customers shopping in person but this is quite the opposite for eCommerce stores which are soaring due to the pandemic making most people, especially those most vulnerable, not want to leave their house to shop in person. Truthfully, COVID-19 has caused eCommerce stores to make more sales and profit than ever before. In fact, US & Canadian eCommerce stores have experienced a 146% growth in all online retail orders which is quite a leap.
