Linkatharsis: Turn that frown upside down because The OC's coming back in a week
Since I've been full of downers today, here's a something happy: today's my mom's birthday. Happy Birthday to the greatest mother in the world. Thanks for everything, even if you aren't reading this blog and it's already the day after in Japan.
Tomorrow: ?uestlove, Rza and Mos Def
But now that it's on the nonexistent shelves of iTunes, I have an easy way of checking it out. The stuff I've listened to, I liked - a very stripped down, lo-fi production, almost sounds like it was recorded on one of those little tape recorders I used in middle school French class.
You might remember ChesnuTT from The Roots' "Seed 2.0". If so, check out the original "Seed" with a less hectic, simpler sound.
I don't have the file handy with me, but in the meantime, listen to "Look Good In Leather", which was my theme song for a few months in 2002.
Okay, I'm not really scooping anyone. I just subscribe to NPR emails.
