Dirty Loops cover Alphaville’s “Forever Young”

As much as I like Jay Z, I really can’t stand what he did to Alphaville’s chart topping single from 1984 “Forever Young”. Alphaville’s recording was a song of my youth. For me, it was a song played as the one of the last songs at summer boarding school dances (the other being Don McLean’s “American Pie”) where groups of friends would gather in a … Read More Dirty Loops cover Alphaville’s “Forever Young”

New Music | Ms Lauryn Hill | “Black Rage” [Stream]

  Given the recent civil unrest in Ferguson, MO, leave it to Lauryn Hill to drop a track she recorded over a year ago as a demo.   This is music at it’s best. Music that speaks to current social climate. This is the kind of music that makes on think deep about why we, as a society, are why, and who, we are.   I’mma … Read More New Music | Ms Lauryn Hill | “Black Rage” [Stream]

I was informed that a photography company named Harmonic Light was taking psychedelic pictures for the party, so I head into the nearby room (with a stripper pole) where they were set up. With … Read More Toddchella | Part II | The Record Company

Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians

Continued from Toddchella | Part II | The Record Company My buzz was still going, and I kept going to the bar to get more ice for my scotch. I tipped each time I ask for more ice. I never had to wait for ice. Tipping usually works that way. I head back out to the stage area, and by the time I returned … Read More Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians

Snoop Lion | “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” Featuring Miley Cyrus | Mourning Loss

It’s been quite a surreal day for me.  Yesterday, I took my dog, Samson, to the vet as I noticed he was bleeding from his mouth. The vets noticed a growth on his tongue and diagnosed an Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Cancer. My heart broke. The vets told me that it looked bad and that I should consider getting additional tests and prep him for … Read More Snoop Lion | “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” Featuring Miley Cyrus | Mourning Loss
