Thursday Throwdown

The weekend is going to be long and arduous for me as it looks like I'll have time for about 6 hours of sleep between tomorrow morning and Sunday evening, but them's the breaks. In lieu of this I'm posting a few tunes to keep you occupied until then. Kicking it off will be FM Hi Low, who are at the Capital tonight with Weak Size Fish which will be an awesome show. If you're not into that, it's Major Rager with Tyler Aikens in the Phoenix. If you're not into that either, I can't help you. Next post will be another Monday Megapost. Until then, enjoy.

FM Hi Low - Riches [Live @ Mount Tremblant]

Weak Size Fish - Smoke Stax [Live @ The Capital]

Wretch 32 - Traktor

Sophie Rimheden & Eboi - Whiz Kid

Stinj - Bang Bros


United Future Organization - Somewhere

Get 'er done.

The Tea Party - The River

After beating my poor legs up running far too many kilometers yesterday, today I am going to float down a river in a tube. Glorious. Almost as glorious as this awesome live performance by the Tea Party of their awesome song from their awesome album "Splendor Solis". Get it? Got it? Good.

Rock over London, rock on Chicago.

Bon Iver - Calgary

It's funny how our perceptions of time and space change as technology advances our ability to travel and communicate with each other. In the ever-evolving world of the internet, for example, and the recent proliferation of so-called "viral" videos, once something has been around for more than a couple weeks, it's old news. This is the "new" Bon Iver video, but it's been out for almost three weeks now, so maybe it's old too. I don't know. Anyway these guys have been around for a couple years now and have garnered quite a bit of critical acclaim, though admittedly not from me. I've largely ignored them but recently got my hands on this track and thought "hmmm... that's actually pretty good." I've listened to it many times since then, and just found the "new" video for it. If you're already into these guys, you're welcome. If not, you're welcome.

Tonight, the Phoenix. Tomorrow, the river.

Shotgun Jimmie - Used Parts

No crazy rants today, just some crazy music. This is Shotgun Jimmie, a bit of a looney who stops in at the Capital when he's in town. I'm not sure I would describe him as a virtuoso, but he's entertaining, and he thinks he's a cat. Take that for however you like.

Next time, I eat a television.

Soul II Soul - Back To Life

I've been perusing some of the forums in the vastness of the interweb today, and one of the once-again popular topics, thanks to yesterday being July 4th, is President Obama's birth certificate. For what it's worth, here's my two cents. I wish this topic would go away, but probably not for the same reasons as many of you. I happen to be proficient enough with Photoshop and other editing programs to know that the birth certificate is fake. No really, it is. A complete forgery. Don't believe me? Here is a document from a more "reputable" source showing clearly that it is.

So if it's a fake, why don't I care? It's simple really. What do people hope to achieve through pursuing this? An impeachment? Then what? Joe Biden takes over. Are we to assume that anything changes at this point, given the fact that Mr. Biden is already vice-president and part of the very same government that is in place right now? That's just silly.

The only good I can see coming from this type of campaign is to inform American people that their government is full of cheats and liars and they should start to focus more on local government than their obviously failed national one. I think a good deal of people are already on that page anyway, and if they're not they are in denial and this issue won't sway them any more than the other far more pertinent issues, like American foreign policy. Political reform has to come from the bottom when it's clear that none will ever come from the top.

Back to reality...

Monday Mega Post

I took a week's vacation for no good reason other than it seemed like the thing to do. Had a busy weekend, and I've been considering how best to integrate the blog into my new website which began construction today. I think I can figure out how to embed it into the website, so that may be the best route. Anyway it'll be a few weeks yet I think before I get it all sorted, so in the meantime here's a week's worth of tunes to make up for the past week. Oh and by the way I watched Transformers 3 yesterday at the theater, and it sucked. Don't waste your time watching it. You can thank me for the 2.5 hours of your life I've just saved you later.

Ambition - A.M.B.I.T.I.O.N.

Dillon Francis & Diplo - Que Que

Hey Rosetta! - Young Glass [Live @ The Edge]

Ladi6 - Walk Right Up

Oh Land - White Nights [Live @ Big Ugly Yellow Couch]

Retro/Grade - Reset

Thursday - Magnets Caught In A Metal Heart
