Happy V-day

Happy V-day. Happy day of over commercialized non-importance. Shouldn't every day be V-day? I mean if you're in a relationship, shouldn't it? I think so. That's what I keep telling my love. We're not together today. Unlucky me, there was a biz trip out of town. But it's cool. I've got a lot of work to do. When don't I?

Have you seen the 2001 Village Voice Pazz & Jop? I was one of those music reviewers—of several hundred—who got to vote on the best music of 2001. Bob Dylan won hands down. That is very interesting, b/c last year Outkast came in at #1. Thought perhaps the votes would go toward Jay Z this year. But it looks like what I've been saying all year is true. Hip-hop just was't all that interesting in 2001. Not even the Nas - Jay Z battle. I think some independent artists, like The Coup, Cannibal OX, and Roots Manuva, put out some really interesting music. But the major players were simply doing the same old thing they've been doing the past 2 or 3 years. Besides, aren't we just a tad bit tired of Neptune-produced beats?
