This is America - Childish Gambino, 2018

THIS SHIT IS MONUMENTAL.

Leigh and I spent the first couple times, each, not being able to take our eyes off of him. 

Then we just watched what was happening behind him. 

He is in full flow through all his crafts in this one. 

Musically, the two tracks interweave between positive/negative dichotomy. Total Monsters.

Light and Dark. Good and Evil. Yin and Yang. Flow Personified. 

Lyrically it is sparce and beautiful. 

This is a masterpiece.  

Thank you. 

Thank you.

Thank you. 

JANELLE MONAE - DIRTY COMPUTER, 2018

I WENT THROUGH THIS ALBUM TWICE LAST NIGHT.

IT IS ENLIGHTENED, DIVERSE, FUN, ANGRY, POLITICAL, FEMINIST, SAVAGE, BEAUTIFUL, SEXY AND FREE. 

ESPECIALLY REFRESHING AFTER WATCHING EVERYTHING KANYE IS GOING THROUGH TOWARD THE RELEASE OF NEW WORK. I'D LIKE TO WRITE ABOUT THAT TOO. 

Smoked

Kendrick and Childish Gambino performed so well.

Currently having my mind blown by this band by a LIVE SET ON KCRW. 

Hail from houston, texas

Wow, when is the last time art inspired you instantly?

In this case I am hearing the future, the past and something new -  all at the same time.

This is music for musics sake. 

Grateful for moments like this in my life

the dub version at the end of this video is fantastic.

Creep - Radiohead, (Live Belfort, France) 1997

The best performance of Creep I have ever seen. That song is really special. People love it, People hate it but it is a pure manifestation of alienation. It is part of the lexicon of music by a  generation of kids saying "what the fuck?"

" Smells like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana or "whats going on?" by Marvin Gaye choose whatever you want. These songs get washed over and over again with use, criticism and parody - because they mean something. They are a flag in the ground for cultural transition.

Tibetan Freedom Concert 1998 - Radiohead Stills

Some of these songs were rattling around in my head on Thanksgiving - weird when they pick there spots. Screenshots from the youtube footage. Middle of the day. I like looking at the kids with the On-Stage credentials. Back then you sat on scaffolding with your legs hanging out over the stage. So cool in the 'old days' what a trip
