i am so behind schedule today… i got so sidetracked… i still am actually… well.. a while back… a looong while back… i mentioned this crazy CD that was a little bit Beatles… and a little bit Jay-Z… yep… so it didn’t end there… and there are actually quite a few more of these odd concoctions… as well as straight up remixes of the CD… so that’s kept me pre-occupied this morning… listening to all the versions attainable… silly i know… but some of them are pretty good… and really it opens up a decent discussion concerning the future of hip hop and music as a whole… it seems that with each of these remixes… further street cred has been given to “The Black Album” as a whole… and honestly… each piece is a decent expression of the artist within the composer… what’s interesting… is that this sort of takes the music industry to the place where software has been… open source… picture it now… a rap album drops… and within weeks there are 500 variant versions to choose from… i don’t know… it might be a pretty cool thing… power to the people… it’s sure gonna give the copyright cops headaches for a little while… that’s for sure…

speaking of the feds… hello… i’m told you’re watching this very blog… or something like that…

it really stinks that i’m eating so late… i get to go to a party right after work and have burgers and stuff… i hope i’m hungry enough… or maybe i’ll just bring my ziploc bags with me…

i’m sure there’s some wonderfully insightful things i wanna say right here… but man… i need to get something done… “You only scared to die when you ain’t livin right…” how’s that? Talib Kweli said it…

peace… love… bdg…
