sunday sunday sunday

Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Susan Ertz, Anger in the Sky
To my peoples, I just wanted to say that I'll be taking this Sunday off too. I've needed to take some personal time off but didn't want to leave people hanging (no it's not because of the outcome of the super bowl, well maybe. I will resume Sunday Night Jam Sessions next Sunday. In the mean time, enjoy the beat.

unbeWeavable! Weave stops speeding bullet.

sunday night jam sessions

thank Khari for this Soviet Funk session

Chuck Berry - Brown Eyed Handsome Man (i need more songs like this in my life)

someone needs to tell Kanye that he is NO WHERE CLOSE TO BEING MLK JR. So coming up with a name really close, no it's not cute, it's insulting and stupid. And he is NOT saving hip hop looking and acting like this. Also forward this memo to Jay Z so he can stop calling himself J-Hova (that is God's name in some circles)

***this was a comment on youtube that i had to share from this Kanye vid:
This guy has turned 50% retard, its a shame, he thinks he's being funy its just geting sad, he's gonna be the next britney.

stay green.

Beyonce Go'n Get Her Ass Whooped

This is Awesome!
Just when I was starting to like Beyonce, I have to backtrack cuz I'm WAY more of an Etta fan.

that's kinda how I've felt the past few years.
stay green.

Cudi does Too $hort

side note... I know I KNOW I shouldn't be a fan of $hort (feminism and all) but I can't help my environment. He's like a guilty pleasure. Anyway Cudi has him DOWN in this clip. Makes me kinda proud he chose Oakland.

stay green.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday

Sunday Night Jam Sessions

This is an excellent interview with ?uestlove. Definitely glad I saw this after seeing his interview in Electric Purgatory.

random thoughts of the day:
How come no one EVER mentions when Babyface was the biggest super-producer ever? Did you know that Ice-T played a kangaroo in the horrible live action/cartoon Tank Girl? R&B is sort of a collection of Blues and Afrobeat. You should listen to more Fela Kuti. Savath & Savelas clearly spent a LOT of time listeing to The Tony Rich Project. Nardwar may be irritating, but he is a fucking genius. I want to personally thank him for his interview skills.

stay green.
