Unbelievably exhausted as I type this. Didn’t do anything. Just stayed in watched the Brew Dogs marathon that I taped. Also, South Park’s Black Friday Trilogy finale. That left me in stitches. Got a few things to do this weekend, but nothing big worth mentioning. Just more recovery. I recommend coming back Saturday where our Spotlight will shine once more. Got a bunch of emails piled up in my inbox that I have to go through & possibly feature. Not much love on Twitter. Bunch of fake followers keep adding & then dropping me because I don’t like a ‘follow/unfollow’ phony. Either you like my stuff or you don’t. I repay loyalty with communication. So yeah…
Oh god. Complaining about utter bullshit again. Sorry. When keeping it real goes wrong, right?
We did a piece on Richard Marx for the day job last week and the whole experience of hearing music I actually like as background fodder was pleasurable. Not my favorite Marx track. Catchy. But very 80s. Prefer Hazard or Right Here Waiting…the dark ballad hooky cuts. But is greatest hits album gets my recommendation. Bought it at Best Buy back in the ’00s for cheap, took it home, played it while playing video games, and remember every second of it. Hope you like. Have a great weekend y’all! More words…coming soon.
Consider this one of those perfectly pressed tracks. It’s quite organic how each verse evolves from each other as Keith Urban speeds to the enlightening conclusion. A love song. To say the least. Yet more than that. It really about a man coming to terms with his flaws. Think that’s why I like it so much. Can relate to the sweeping chorus as an imperfect man. Revealing so much of what I see beneath my aging skin. Most of all…sounds great driving in the car. Where I featured this picture & track. Forgot about my iPod as I rose this morning. Comic Book Wednesday rolled later than usual, but we were playing this really cool board game called zombies. Got a little too into it. Normally, I’m so carefree but really wanted to make it to the helipad. Didn’t. Got killed by a zombie just as I made it to the street. Got a killing spree just before. Rolling those 6′s on 6s. Pop. Pop. Good thing my character would have a shelf life in a world like the Walking Dead.
No Wing Night. So, gonna to home…recover…and write some more Fav Album blurbs. Almost to 10! Did some rearranging to make more fleshed out countdown.
This is a Heart Like Mine by Mr. Urban.
Comic Book Wednesday! Don’t really have anything to pick up. Which is kind of nice. Can spend the $ on a trade. Something classic. Really want to re-read the Age of Apoc saga of Uncanny. Or I can pick up my one book & call it a night. Hmm.
Last night I was enthralled with Crunchyroll’s iPad App. Watched so much Anime. Don’t even need my TV anymore. Just a good wi-fi connection. This new toy will probably put a damper on the time I leave open for reading. Maybe I’ll schedule days where I watch Anime and read comic books. Maybe I should put down the toys, get a girlfriend, and meet my future now…Naw. That’s what weekends are for? Any girl reading this will probably kick me in the shin. But hey, yolo. (lol)
Speaking of shins. That’s your hump day song. Because Wednesdays are made for Mercer & the guys. Another album drops tonight.
What an uplifting and lifting song. Way…way…different than the music R. Kelly is making as of late. Listened to his new album ‘Black Panties’ last night. Whew. I haven’t laughed so much at weirdly sexual lines like “…I wanna marry your pussy…” & “…ass so big that the whole hive looks like they stun ya…” since BOATS II. 2 Chainz! (Sorry, habit.) Nothing in comparison to the new Gambino shit dropping next week that I’m still trying to digest. Frank Ocean’s ‘Channel Orange’ played a major role in shaping the direction for that record. Not sure if I like it. We’ll see.
New Music Tuesday. Britney Spears’ new album drops alongside Jake Owen, Leona Lewis, Glen Hansard, and a few soundtracks like Sound of Music & Sons of Anarchy. Didn’t even know about Glen’s. Gonna listen to it next. Indie rock love. Oh yes. Jake Owen’s seems out of place. A country summer record dropping at Christmas Time. Needs some legs to make it to summer when they drop the deluxe edition.
Until then he’s a classic track from youth that shows you how far R. Kelly has come. Plus, Space Jam clips.
We’re back…well, not really. I’m back behind the wheel as autopilot has been turned off. My auto publish was quite busy all weekend long with new albums to share. December / This half of the holiday season is my favorite time of year. I get a bit saucy when it comes to sharing. So expect more. Another one of my favorite albums drops tonight. I’m currently writing #14. That’s how dangerous I can be if I organize my time properly. Blurbs on blurbs. .
I’m relaxed & feeling quite better. Until this week hits then I’ll be fucked. ha!
I sort of liked this record. Dig this Dashboard track. Especially the acoustic. Chirs & Dash are just one of those bands that works in a intimate / stripped down sound. Not made for big arenas. Like when I saw them at Staples. Kind of pointless to sway in an arena. Anyway. A classically new dashboard anthem while I work on another pretape. Welcome back…this is “Belle of the Boulevard”
We made it to Turkey Wednesday! I already got a phone call from my bosses at 5:30. Ah! Despite that weird moment…our show is pretty much pre-taped. We’ll be out of here quite early which is dope. Feel bad for the other show. But not really. This song is self explanatory of how I feel. Let’s just get the fuck outta here. I’m not on call this weekend. Ready for adventure. More of my favorite albums are dropping every night. But you won’t hear much from me after today. Might tweet some boring stuff. Who knows. I’m just ready for a nice, long, break.
Have a great holiday everyone!!! I’ll be out exploring.
An ultimate Rolling Stones classic kicks off this Turkey Tuesday (formerly referred to as New Music Tuesday). Most of this week’s releases dropped yesterday and not even worth mentioning. What is, however, is that we’re gonna have another favorite record stream later in the day! A certain kind of shoe will be needed. Just sayin’. Wrote two more last night putting me a few days ahead. On track to finish the week tonight. As I head further down the list, my writing tends to go autopilot because more the upcoming records I had a better connection with. Or I a wonderful story to tell. Longtime readers know this. Just warming up. Ha!
How I Met Your Mother had me talking in rhymes last night. Fun.
Nothing more to say. We’re almost there. That we are. Here’s a classic Stones. Point those fingers.
3 days. 6 shows. Then 4 days off. Yeah man. Not guilty of having a good time. That I’m not. Felt the best I had felt in a few weeks yesterday and spent most of the day hiking 7+ miles on the normal trail. All in anticipation for all that turkey, bread, stuffing combo on Thursday. Don’t think I’m gonna go crazy black Friday. Trying to save my $. Looks like dinner with the fam will be the only thing I do on Thanksgiving. Nothing is written in stone. Will write about my adventures later? Maybe.
Last night began our 25 favorite records of 2013. 24 drops tonight. Like last year, where the Bahamas were featured, 24 will be highlighted by a not so famous band that appeared in our spotlight a few months ago & who follow us on twitter. It’s been a crazy year where I got in touch with so many new noises & faces. Can only imagine what 2014 has in store.
Doctor Who 50th was awesome! Peter’s cameo blew me away.
This song has appeared in our 1st song before. So sorry. I love this track from Usher & T.I. Here’s Guilty…because I’ll be guilty grabbing seconds on thursday. ha!
Haven’t stopped humming this song all morning. I picked up Continuum on vinyl two weeks ago & haven’t stopped bumping the record. I blame our Hollywood Bowl Showcase for highlighting all these tracks. Fell in love with Mayer’s classics once more. What could be more wondrous? Kind of what my life has been sounding like over the past few months of long days and even longer nights. In which my doc & forecast have told me to cut back on. I’m ready for 30. Seriously. Happy that the way I’m ending my joyous, heartbreaking. adventurous, 20s is quietly. I have done so much in 10 years & got a few more weeks until the clock turns on me. Gonna put together another memorable holiday. That I will.
Happy Friday. We made it once more. Hunger Games tonight with the click. Doctor Who 50th tomorrow. Rocking my PJs. And Random goodies until I return on Monday. Hopefully feeling the best I have felt since Oct. Until then enjoy riding in the cabin cart as the world passes us by. Have a fantastic weekend reader.
Love a cali rain. Hate driving in a cali rain. Still beautiful to admire during the silence. That it is. Got a lot to do, so I can’t stay long. Enjoy this music video and song from electronic poppers Example. These pretapes are gonna kill me.
