I am letting you in on a big secret today, one of my all time FAVE blogs.
Jan Chipchase gets to travel the world doing research on behalf of Nokia. He spends time in some of the most technologically enriched countries in the world, and in some of the most deprived. His insights are so significant sometimes, that it is amazing he gathers them in the limited time he seems to be in each location. He is also an incredible photographer. So I spend many visits, completely ignoring his writing (shame on me!) but only looking. Pictures of dental care, guys on bikes who charge your cell in the Sahara, cute signage, etc. It oddly is so (un)related to what I do, that I gain many creative ideas from it.
My obsession for his site is three fold really, one I travel a LOT for work (though not so much this year), I work all day in broken English communicating with all parts of the world (mostly Asia), and lastly, because it's about a bunch of tech stuff, innit?
(not to even mention, the pure beauty of human life, and how we are all similar, but not)
Please to enjoy.

Strath's brother Sky bartended Friday nite at Arrow on Avenue A.
I found it very entertaining that they both had on Rod Lavers. Even funnier that Sky's were filthy and his jeans old, while Strath was fully dipped. Being an only child, I notice lots of sibling similarities many probably don't. It's just funny to me.

Click soulstrut.com for TONS more mixes and goodness.
Also a bit more on the music front, I found this amazing site in my searches.
A few items to look out for and note-
-Lordz of Brooklyn (I had forgotten how good this was)
-The Jaz (yeah with Jay-Z, we were never able to sell these when I worked at Phonoluxe Used Records in Nashville, it's amazing now)
Lastly, a little bit of political fun, and, btw, can we have this election already?!?!? haha. (seriously though, I am ready to move on.)
And, oh yeah, I am really digging the Macarena these days. "Hey Macarena!"

Based on all this recent reminiscing, I have been digging through my mind for things that entertained my past. Being in Nashville, Johnny Cashville, I spent lots of time going to Atlanta in the early 90's.
So recently, I really wanted to hear Atlanta based, skate rap group, yall so stupid again. I did a few quick blog searches (google blog search is sick) and found a posting of the full album, I have it somewhere, maybe at mom's in Cashville. anyways, if you knew them and forgot, get it, if you don't know, get it, if you already have, play it now.
the full album

I was checking youtube for kid n' play videos, (hahaha, yeah, you know you have too!!) and then was like, I want to check the U.M.C.'s out, and BOOM!
This piece of pure, historical beauty pops up. Claymation and hip-hop, plus a vintage eastern block cartoon? I mean what else do you want in a video. Really? Not too mention, it is maybe my fave song by them.
Just wait though, I got tons of of history headed your way, including something inspired by Strath's "Don't Front" series.
today christine is doing a big post on earf day.
go check it out, lots of friends suggestions. we have been doing lots at home, including unplugging everything, buying more in bulk, trying to use less. not to mention me not eating meat for 17 years, that has to help somehow. hahah.

Strath's excellent blog, about most everything. Strath used to run Conception Records (da Grassroots anyone?) with Supreme out in Seattle, he was more recently art director at Visionaire, and is a
My wife's blog. I have mentioned her creative work before, but now you can see the brain as well. Excellent posts on design, and nice interviews in her "Five Whats" section, Peskimo, Maryink, and Paul Budnitz, among others have put their "five on it" so far. Also, her interest (and mine) and reports on French movies and the such.
Both Highly Recomended.
Speaking of, anyone seen this crazy French Noel video, Gainsbourg, Goya, Marchand, Dutronc, etc. Its totally insane.
