music


i found this thoroughly entertaining

for those of you living under a rock, this is an a cappella version of “just dance” by lady gaga

This is what I love about being alive, love about music, and love about people.  This one guy gets everyone to boogie down…. totally my kind of party!

From the 2009 Sasquatch Music Festival.  Santigold is playing (she rocks!).

I am dedicating this song to my very awesome friend Dana:

He’s got one hell of a voice too, eh?

Stole this from Zoomdoggle, but it’s WELL WORTH the repost!  This chick totally floored me.

WHEN: May 28 – June 1
WHERE: Berlin
WHAT: “The World Championship is a five days music festival with battles, showcases, workshops and the Beatbox Battle World Conference. Over 140 vocal percussion and beatboxing artists from more than 30 different countries will take part in the event. The whole program will be broadcast live online free of charge. For complete details, check out their website, but for a jaw-dropping morning rush, check out the online Wild Card Champ (ie, the newcomer who won entry via YouTube) 17 year old Julia Dales, from Canada.

i haven’t search such intense, creative and wickedly fresh music to groove to since hearing Zero 7 for the first time all those years ago. first, i have to highlight how awesome blip.fm is (check me out!)… talk about a new wave of social networking! i’ve found it to be a cross between twitter and songerize, and have discovered some really fabulous artists in the process – wax tailor coming with a quick “oh yes i have to have that!” reaction. i’ve only downloaded one wax tailor album so far but i’m totally hooked.  the sound is trippy and melodic with hip hop, jazz and general quirkiness overtones.  i love it.

My music moods have been all over the place. Was just chatting with my homegirl Dana about 80’s freestyle, so I had to showcase some Shannon. This was my jam back in the day! And you can’t make this shit up… brothers really thought their hair looked hot like that, back in ’84.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I just discovered this guy and I LOVE HIM!  Every so often a new artist comes into my life and completely speaks to my current state of mind.  This is one of those moments… life is so good.  SO.  GOOD.

Eff you, YouTube user for not letting me embed!  Bah!
