ez listening

No reviews on any of these yet. It just happens to be what I'm listening to while I'm working. Some of it's old, and some of it's new. Of course on the new stuff, I have no opinions at this time. Cecily happened to meniton one of these joints in her daily dose the other day, and while I had it lying around I didn't think of popping it into the disc player until then.

cee lo — cee lo green and his perfect imperfections
st germain — tourist
jarvis church — shake it off
hidden beach recordings presents — unwrapped vol. 1
raphael saadiq — instant vintage

Although I had it on my playlist last month, Jason's post
on Jazzanova's In Between has me listening to the disc like nearly e'rday. And like five times a day at that. It simply warms my soul. And I hope I get an opportunity to write about it, somewhere. Speaking of writing, I've still been doing some freelancing here and there. I've been doing terribly at updating the site when I get something published. Mainly, my most recent writing (basically reviews) has appeared in Mosaic, XLR8R, and New York Press. I've also got a review of Slum Village's Trinity in the most recent issue of VIBE with Alicia Keys on the cover, which should be on newsstands now. This issue is really exceptional. And I'm not just saying it because I work for the company either. If you never read the magazine again, or haven't read it in years, cop this one. It'll be worth your $3.99.

Last night, went to check out the Pulitzer Prize winning Topdog/Underdog. And no I wasn't hanging out when I should be focusing on finals. I'm actually using it for one of my assignments. The play had an extended run, and being a loyal Tele-Charge customer enabled me to secure $40 tix. While the play has an overall sad tone, Mos Def and Jeffrey Wright had me ROFL LMBAO. They are both phenomenal actors, and I hope this gets them more exposure on the big screen. The humor of the play thinly veiled some Cain and Able type ish, along with questions about race and humanity. I truly loved it.

Wow, you really just never know. I happened to check my stats and in following a link realized that I am this month's featured blogger on FemmeNoir.net. The unexpected seems to happen again and again. You really just never know.
