Thank you

Here’s to you Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. I’ve blogged and bragged about you for years. From when I bought your CD for $5 in ’05, when you silly stringed the Wild Buff in B’ham, and when yes, Mr. Haggerty, you jumped into the crowd and knocked me out, but I’ll blame my PBR tallboy. You give the crowd something to believe in, you bring fans to your shows who throw their Nikes in a fist pump rage and remember what it’s like being one not for a mosh pit, but for a cause. Your words mean something to everyone. We Seattle people watch you fly the coop and cross our fingers you won’t pull a Sonic, but better yet, take over the world and use us as a base camp. For success, failure, love, and support, we will always be there. Thank you guys for making songs with humor, seriousness, and of course amazing cuts. Forever, Sharkface gang.

Music Hiatus

I’ve got to admit, I’m rusty these days. A new apartment, full time job, and yes…the SUN in the northwest has driven me away from scouring the web for new music that came out within the hour. Scamming off the neighbor’s internet and having it work only 50% of the time hasn’t helped either. But here’s what I have been listening to most lately, Macklemore and RL came out with a great song and music video a couple of weeks ago that went viral, recapping their road to underground hiphop fame, not so much underground though eh? BA$$Y Remix made a decent spin from Bon Iver’s Holocene, and Brazilian Girls “Good Time” has been helping me get out of bed every morning (props Mr. Farwell on this gem)

What to look forward to: more photos, my new kitten, drunken adventures, sober adventures, music, the usual

Champagne Diet Playlist

All songs chosen specially for that champagne in hand moment for the beginning of a beautiful night. Next time you have a grown up gathering, don’t panic, play this and pour it to the top.

An underrated but much appreciated hiphop group.

Yes, this one (below) is already over played but it’s part of the champagne shakin’ mix, so deal.

In honor of the glitter Prince party.

Some bootleg lovin’

And then slowly coming back down from techno-land

Now here is where you start the serious dancing, and as always…Macklemore you take it from here. Yes, I already posted this song, deal.

Sneak this before it comes out

Macklemore x Ryan Lewis is coming out with a new music video tomorrow, but here’s the youtube from KEXP. It’s definitely different than what we’re used to hearing from the duo. The beat is faster, but the lyrics are, as always, mesmerizing- and gotta love Owour Arunga on the trumpet. Support Seattle music and watch the video when it comes out!

4 The Love of Music Benefit

The finest from Seattle’s local hiphop scene came together on a Tuesday night at Neumos for the Rainer Vista Boys and Girls Club Music Program. I don’t use Photoshop, and wanted to throw in a few of the, ahem, experiments with the settings that both succeeded and failed.
