Video Of The Day – “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See” Busta Rhymes

9 Sep


True Fact. I have seen Busta Rhymes two times in person while living in NYC. Once standing outside a record shop on Chambers Street. The other escorting a female to a cab with his security guard in the morning, then going to a bank. Also on Chambers street. Not that it matters. Anyways I think Busta Rhymes is only rivaled by Andre 3000 when it comes to fashion sense. Very few words can describe the video, so just let it wash over you like a sprinkler on a summer day.




Song Of The Day – “Tamp ‘Em Up Solid” by Ry Cooder

27 Jul


Ry Cooder should be named a living national treasure. Aside from being a master multi-instrumentalist on guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, accordian, the man is an expert historian on American music. At ease in any style from the blues, gospel, jazz, folk,hawaiian slack-key he can do it all. “Tamp ‘Em Up Solid”,  a traditional off his classic album Paradise and Lunch, shows  combines elements of  gospel, country, and jaw dropping finger picking into a foot stomping good time. For this live performance Cooder does a stripped down version, with just himself, guitar and his backing singer allowing his  finger picking to have all the spotlight.

They don't make album covers like this anymore.

Song Of The Day – “Because Of You” by Ne-Yo

26 Jul

We’ve all been there. The person we can’t get enough of, and no matter what is going on during the day, there’s that person. Incredible how the mind can torment itself right? Apparently neo-soul singer Ne-Yo is quite familiar with this as he laments about his sexual addiction situation , possibly to his therapist. In the video we can see how terribly distraught Ne-Yo is as he rolls around the bed with a two different models and dances in circles, (literally @ 1:11) in a night club. This song grooves really hard and always gets the toes tapping on my feet. Enjoy.

I jumped on the band wagon and started this bad boy up. I want to talk about current issues, make (hopefully) interesting social commentary and maybe occasionally say something insightful. So with out further adieu, blog on.
