Such is my life...

You know, ups, downs, some laughs. Funniest laugh recently being the COLOSSAL FAIL (rofl, it's that very derivative new new, peep game) that last week's "Grand Relaunch" has been so far. Staying in line with this blog's trends over the last 2-3 years (well, the parts where I was sorta trying), a proclamation was followed by...nothing. And of course, I don't have much for you now either. Want some empty promises? I meeean, I do have a...


Kashal-Tee: "Blood, Sweat & Beers"

Ten year-old Swedish raps? Got 'em! This guy was an old HHI (RIP) superstar that seems to be slowly getting some more material out there. I enjoyed this tune back in college, and thought of it the other day. Of course, it was only on a couple compilation 12-inches, one of which is trying to fetch 80 euros (currently about $118 US) on discogs right now! Since I can't think of any song that I have $118 (plus shipping from Germany) -worth of love for, I turned the hunt in a different direction. After using last.fm to find the three people they know that have EVER listened to the song, the kind Australian I contacted pointed me to Down To Erf, where the track was on a comp for Christmas. Hallelujah! Download and enjoy!

Rallying cry

From the god himself:

"Andrew's blog is a mystery. It's like it's too academic for people to muck up with comments or something. ANDREW PATTON IS A REGULAR JOE, PEOPLE. His blog feels real desolation and cries real tears as a result. And no, they are not the easy tears of love, but the fiery, bitter tears of neglect! We live in a country where Matthew McConaughey can star in one hit movie after another despite never displaying any kind of competence at his craft. A country where Chyna is still on television on a weekly basis. A country where Kanye West is winning Grammys and not Ghostface. So does it shock me that this same country would heap comments on less deserving blogs? No. But it does sadden me. Andrew Patton has something to say about music, and the way he appreciates it. In fact, for those who know him well, I'd be positively gobsmacked if one of you could say that he hasn't affected your appreciation of music in some way. I owe much to this man, including thirty-three dollars, but most of all, my ever-expanding understanding of, and love for, music."

Wow. All I can say is this:

War is on for you biting fools...er, I mean...I'm ready for war. Andy's kind words have reminded me that I have a mission here. It's motherfuckin' music time. Certain folks have wanted more of the third aspect of Beats, Rhymes, and Life around these parts, but fuck it. I want this to be a music blog, by Jove! So a music blog it is! Prepare for me to pound my superior tastes into your weak skulls! Shit, I mean, it is time to refocus my aim on the jams. Suggestions are always welcome, but at this point I'm planning on putting EFFORT into some almost-regular music-writin', both here and at Donewaiting. Cuz I'm DONE WAITING!

Also, I was told that a certain DW review of mine has been read by Rick Rubin. That is all.
