“Who gets to tell the stories? This is a question asked often. The answer, in this case, for better or for worse, is I do. At least this time out. I do my best. I look; I listen. But in the end ― I know ― it’s my story. Not Kamau’s. Not Kenya’s or Kenyans.’ Those stories are yet to be heard.”
-Anthony Bourdain's narration on his final season of 'Parts Unknown.'
Tell stories. Tell your stories. My name is Fidel and I'm a storyteller. I am going to tell you stories about these places I've seen, but no matter how inspiring they will be, your story will be different and I want to hear yours as well.
Are you going to watch Bourdain's last season of 'Parts Unknown?'
I watched an older episode from Sicily yesterday and it was watched with a very heavy heart. As I watch him enjoying people, food, places, and experiences, I can't imagine why he would end his life. It's going to be tough watching the new season and not thinking those things.

-Randevoux with La Llorona-
We used to get dropped off late sometimes from practice and the bus driver wouldn't take us all the way home. The road is about 3/4 of a mile long, maybe a little longer. One night my cousin and I were walking home and we heard shreeks. First we thought we heard a scream of his name. We were quiet and listened for a second... then we heard my name. You'd never see us run so fast. My friend at the end of the bridge owned peackcocks that were always wailing. But we ran like there was ghosts after us. It was hilarious but we were certain we heard the same thing. Set your alarms early. Run in the AM!

•SXSW Preview Austin Chronicle• Fourpiece Kay Odyssey’s hazy, low-key psychedelia is thick with a slick dreaminess, stemming from the tangled vocal harmonies of guitarist Kristina Boswell and bassist Kelsey Wickliffe. The eeriness of the studio work dissipates into a powerful, rockin’ live set
•Arkansas Times Interview•
Austin’s Kay Odyssey released its debut album, “Chimera,” in 2015, a trippy collection of new wave with lead singer Kristina Boswell’s high, warbling vocals at the forefront, evoking the best bits of Siouxsie Sioux’s slow jams and the layered vibe of 90s-era Cocteau Twins. We chatted with band members Kristina Boswell (vocals, guitar), Kelsey Wickliffe (bass guitar, vocals), Liz Burrito (guitar) and Vajaja Valejo (drums) ahead of their show at Maxine’s in Hot Springs •Orlando Weekly•
Kay Odyssey, the Austin-based heavy psych quartet with deep Orlando roots (via vocalist Kristina Boswell), will be playing Will’s Pub this weekend
The group balances the freakout vibes of a Spacemen 3 with postpunk poses a la Siouxsie and the Banshees quite deftly. Local support comes from Harsh Radish and Transcendental Telecom
Day 205: I was reminded today that if I really want something, I have to work for it. Things aren’t just gonna drop in my lap. Dreams will not actually come to fruition unless I execute. Euphoric feelings won’t come unless I search for them. It’s daunting to realize that things will probably suck for a while as I work towards what I really want. The hard work is not attractive by any means, neither is the failures that are sure to follow. However, I need to start putting my foot forward, take a deep breath, and start the journey.
