Me love me Roots and Sulka

hip hop music

I love the Roots. They are one of my top five fave Hip Hop groups. This means I get pretty excited when I hear about new joints from them. The problem is, until right now, i hadn’t heard about anything new. So imagine my surprise when I check out this post on Soulbounce.com

The Roots Redeem Themselves With ‘Rising Up’ – SOULBOUNCE.COM

I didn’t know about the first song/video much less the flack from it. I must be slipping my old age. Anyway, check out the newly released track from the Roots Crew that is on the page above. It’s classic Roots hotness! Meanwhile, I’m going to go sulk in the corner…

I *heart* XKCD + whatever else

Misc music

For one of the reasons why, click this link:

xkcd – A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language – By Randall Munroe

I could have embedded it here, but click through, there is more funny than that.

I was just laughing at the wife for going ga ga for the Nintendo Wii being shown on Rachael Ray. Funnier still since I told her about it a while ago and that she had a chance to try one when my cousin brought his home for Christmas. Won’t be getting it (still can’t find it anyway around here). Not saying never though. *SMH*

This could be remnants from the Strawberry Milk high I was on this morning, but…

From the I don’t know why Dept., here is a list of my 5 favorite songs to wake up to (No particular order):

Somersault (DJ Dangermouse Remix) – Zero 7 Feat. MF Doom
Hummin’ (live) – Cannonball Adderley Quartet
Journey In Satchidananda – Alice Coltrane
Definition (and/or RE: DEFiniton) – Black Star
Down Here On The Ground – Grant Green

Honorable Mentions:
Keep Trying – Groove Theory
Verbal Murder 2 – Pete Rock W/ Big Punisher, Noreaga, and Common
Da Supafriendz – Vast Aire Feat.MF Doom

Still need a reason? Because you didn’t ask but you were wondering. Good enough? 🙂
Need another? What I was originally going to post isn’t working out. What makes it so bad is that I write on the fly. Ida Know

You might THINK that’s the real reason, but it might be.

Peace

What’s up, all, some, or one!

Just throwing this one out here just because. Don’t really do the odds and ends posts, because they would end up that way to me. At any case, I hope to have a couple of hopefully interesting posts coming in the next day or so (but you know me). That’s provided my family don’t run me ragged with requests. I need to start charging them, what’s a good rate? 🙂 Don’t really have much in the way of thoughtful either. There are some blogs on the left of this post that can handle that way better than I can. But that’s for another time. There is a ‘Where are they now’ I’ve been thinking about. It may be a little different from the others. There will be an update coming on the missus’ missives soon, too. It’s funny to me, but, later man. Got a new cellphone last week, so if you see some stuff appear and disappear here, that could be part of the reason. I’d like to try out some things.

So anywhoo, just passing a note on the way to checking out my blog fam (see left sidebar again). Come back through later on.

I leave you with a concert from a pretty cool site that I may or may not have mentioned before called Fabchannel.com. This site basically house hundreds upon hundreds(exact count, Ida know) concerts from music artists far and wide. The concerts are, of course, streamed and you can embed the video into your own site, if you so choose. I’ve gone there ever now and the to check out who’s on there that I would care to see. A lot of the concerts are old and there aren’t a lot of “popular” artists which make it even better, personally. There a lot of artists or groups that you may not have even heard of before doing concerts you may not have ever seen before. See how that works? From time to time, I’ll plant one right here for your perusal. So without Freddie Adu, here is a concert from ’07 from Soul artist Eric Roberson from the Paradiso Main Hall. Not sure where it was, but it’s not the US. it won’t matter.

Peace.

P.S. I wonder if there is someone’s Google alert I can set off?

I said Later, MAN!

Where are they now (Update): Portishead

music where are they now

I could have sworn that I have done one of these for them, but I can’t find it. Portishead is one of the greatest groups, ever. OK, that’s a bit much, but they are a great Electronica/trip-hop group from England. Their first album, Dummy, is a classic. They hadn’t had an album on about 10 years and now they are coming back out.

Maybe they heard me. Doubt it. They were already working on the album when I posted about them. I CAN’T WAIT! Portishead is bringing out their third album called…Third, on April 14 (not the third??) I don’t care. I just want to hear it. I know there are tracks on theirMyspace page (I hope “Keybored 299 03” is still on the album) but I’ve been waiting for a new album for a minute. Hopefully, I will have a review of it when it comes out. We’ll see. I’m lazy about stuff like that, but i want to try my hand at it. That’s all I wanted to say about that for now.
