Man…my server is going on and offline today for seemingly no reason. I can’t figure it out. I spent some of my time creating the neato background that you’re seeing (as long as you’re smart/cool enough to be viewing at anything larger than 800×600). I also busted out with a new header/logo for both the blog and the main site (feel free to give feedback..[hehehe…who am I talking too?]). Plus, I added a mailserver and then pow, massive trouble. I have Googled way too many times today…..my eyes are throbbing from the abuse.
Maybe my question from yesterday has angered the internet gods….
Time for dinner and a movie…No comments
Hehehe…so I finally sat down to watch Michael Moore’s film called ‘Bowling For Columbine.’ My reaction? Holy shit. I had heard, when it first came out, how good it was and how everyone needed to see it. Now I see why. After watching it though, I was reminded of a question that I had come up with back when Fahrenheit 9/11 came out. Here goes:
Why is it that people who loved ‘Bowling For Columbine’ and said it was a great film/documentary, were suddenly anti-Michael Moore movies/docu-style after Fahrenheit?
I realize that a persons political perspective definitely had an impact on whether or not that person would like Fahrenheit, but to go from “loving” his documentaries to “he doesn’t make ‘documentaries’, he’s biased, and that guy sucks” seems pretty retarded.�2 comments
Greensleeves releases the 2007 version of The Biggest Reggae One-Drop Anthems and once again, it’s a great, easy way to hear some of the nicest conscious tunes of this year. The first track in the lineup is “People’s Choice” by Ray Darwin. This is a killer tune on the Mean Girl Riddim (Studio One). I personally have been hypin this track up since I first heard it a while back. Next is another boom tune called “Rastafari Anthem” by Alborosie. This is on the Last War Riddim, which should be very familiar to any reggae listener, since this is the same riddim that Collie Buddz’ track “Come Around” rides. The next favorite on this sampler is Mr Easy’s track called “Strangest Thing”. The track is a great addition to the many anthems out there that biggup the international herb.
All in all, this album is a nice compilation of what’s been happening on the conscious reggae scene for 2007. There are definitely some tracks that I would have personally nixed, but no compilation can make every listener happy.
Again, do yourself a favor….go out and buy this one.
Wow … I have been an internet consumer for so long it feels strange being on the inside. Creating something that can be viewed by anyone anywhere(except a few places that like to restrict the freedom of their people) … It’s an empowering feeling, I almost feel drunk with the limitless potential my words have to impact people I would have virtualy no chance of meeting face to face. With these few words I begin my adventures into a world constructed of 1’s and 0’s that trick us, creating the false reality that is the INTERWEBS.1 comment
First reaction: Nice!
The first track on this album, titled ‘Bird Pepper’, is a great lead-off track. After seeing Khari’s singles showing up on countless mixtapes over the past couple of years, I was definitely looking forward to a full-length release from him. Granted, to the dedicated ‘heads’ out there, most of the tracks have been heard before. But getting them in one place in a nice package is always nice.
Speaking of tracks I’ve heard before: track number 3: ‘Mary Grandson’. Man, this track is still just as hot listening to it today as it was when I first heard it. This is a great example of what Khari’s capable of. Another banger on this release is track 11: ‘Jesus’. This track is on the ‘No Peace Riddim’……..tight!
There’s a couple tracks that aren’t my favorites, but overall, this is a recomendable album that stays conscious from cover to cover. Do yourself a favor; run out and pick up a copy.
Man…after hours of torment, staring at the computer…..this blog thingy is finally up and running. I just hope that I never have any trouble with PHP, MySQL, or Apache ever again.
