Friday, October 20th 2006 playlist



Been a crazy week... got fired from my job, got some great news about my son (his head's AG), and my mp3 player is damn near non-playable. I have loads of new music but haven't really listened to it. Seriously. I haven't even watched the new episode of LOST, let alone get into some new music. And I'm out of town for the majority of this weekend (my shuffle should still be coming tomorrow, but we'll see). So, no list this week, but I do have a link to a sick DnB mix from the one like Heist. I do have a special mix forthcoming... and some other goodies. These next couple of weeks are kind of depressing until I get a new job... I'll get at you tomorrow.

Buy me a Treo!

Well, not really, but I need something... you see, I keep losing ideas and what not for this blog, and other aspects of my life!

It's my own fault, honestly. Aside from some of my past indulgences, I just have a load of thoughts going through my head that makes it hard for me to remember everything. For example, I put all three of the "Crooklyn Dodgers" joints in my Zen and walked to the bus stop. I'm sitting there, reminiscing and digesting all that is being said, as well all that is being implied in those tracks, and their places in the spectrum of Hip-Hop history. I was really in a zone, breaking down themes, beats, recurring elements, the whole 9, and relaying that into this new track produced by 9th Wonder... and by the time I got on the bus, got to work, and sat down at the PC to piece some of it together... I lost it. I do that a lot, mainly because my best ideas come in the moment, and it's hard to resurrect that shit after the fact. When I write reviews, they are mulled over and "zingers" (cool lines or great points I come up with) are noted in advance, but the actual bulk of the post writes itself right then and there, helped by a lil libation. That's how I have always done it... and if I want to keep up this blog, I might have to switch it up.

Now, being a father of 3 at this point in my life, my money is really funny... eh, not so much funny as not in my bank account. I have found ways to combat this, but still and all, we can barely rub two stick together after all of our bills are paid, let alone going out and copping expensive things like PDAs and phone plans (gotta love Virgin Mobile). That's where you come in: what service would you like to grab, for a fee, to help me purchase a Treo? What would you like in return for helping me advance my art? Would you like a Dub Session Mixtape of your favorite "Brooklyn" tracks? A poem devoted to your loved one? Let a niggy know... and no, I am not on some "I'll give you a fish pen for your red paper clip" type shit, but I mean, if I created a series of mixes, or gave you some ad space on this here blog... what would it take for you to cop me a Treo?

Let me know... either in the comments, or hit me on the e-mail.

LOST, Season 3: "The Glass Ballerina" [recap]


First off, I want to apologize for this recap not being up on Thursday of last week... I wasn't around Thursday to complete it, and it sat by the wayside... peep the funny thing about this recap. I had a good 3 full paragraphs done, but my son woke up. I hit the "save as draft" button on Blogger, and for some reason I lost everything! So, check out the recaps from Lostpedia and MSNBC. I apologize for this one, but I am too tired to give you a half-assed 2nd attempt at perfection (lol nah, but the zingers I had were lost). Maybe I'll get it right next week... until then, namaste.
