“Book of Cade” is the personal website of Michael Cade a.k.a. me.

I live in Portland, Oregon with my fiancée, son, dog, and cat.  

I play music, I write stuff, I take photos and I talk about things.

Topics in which I have some degree of useful knowledge include music, sports, the energy industry, politics, parenthood, marriage, dating, travel, and random esoterica/weirdness. I’m also a fan of strange aesthetics, environs, and architecture, and I’m fascinated by symbols, ritual, iconography, numbers, and nomenclature.

Longform blog posts, outbursts of impulsive thought, book reviews, interviews, podcasts and audio miscellany will appear on this site. I may also feature the occasional guest blogger. Some self-published books might eventually be available for purchase too. Last, I’m putting together an “ASK AN EXPERT” series of interviews where I seek guidance on all manner of diverse topics in order to create my own compendium of niche knowledge.

I’m always interested in finding new ways to make money, so feel free to email me if you have a writing project or a song that needs a beat. For publications seeking to hire freelancers, I have a Muck Rack account here.

Thanks for visiting.
