It’s the weekend!

This popping up in my feed both made me excited as I forgot how innovative this video was, and misty eyed because it took me back to my DJ mentor Uncanny whose not with us anymore.

Have a good one gang.  Take nothing for granted.





As a semi appreciation for ‘Atlanta’, one of the better videos from its homegrown talent.

(And I forgot Tyrese was the leader of the rival gang…)





Was on vacation but I did catch we lost one of the backbones of Bad Boy’s rise last week.

It still bumps, but this feels like one of those ‘you really had to be in the club/party scene’ at that moment in time to understand how influential this song (the original and this remix) was.

RIP Craig Mack.




The new Ricky Gervais stand up on Netflix is interesting to me because, it’s really three shorter sets edited together…

In the first set, he’s basically doing his David Brent, ‘oblivious asshole’ character to poke fun at the Kardashians (well just one really) and how his own celebrity and wealth have left him ‘out of touch’ with the common man…

The second set is a more traditional stand up routine where he talks about everything they don’t tell you about becoming middle aged.  Self deprecating jokes, fat jokes and dick jokes, you know the drill…

In the last set he seems to be speaking in his natural voice, as he (with humor) focuses on all the good of social media (the ability to unite and organize around a cause in hours instead of months) and the bad (how we all fall victim to gaslighting).

It’s a sharp not quite 90 minutes from someone the vast majority of us will never think of as a ‘stand up comedian’.  If you’re a fan of any of his work (‘The Office,’ ‘Extras,’ ‘Derek’), I think it’s definitely worth checking out.




The writing was on the wall about a month ago…

The car breaking down every three months?  That stopped happening.  The hopping around from job to job which is somewhat expected in a town like Los Angeles, but I always seemed to be on the extreme end of it?  That stopped happening.  I’d found a certain type of stability…

Friends?  I inherited my father’s good heart, and I’m frankly embarrassed by the number of people I can genuinely call brother, sister, Fam, family, friend, supporter.  I know what it looks like when people feel genuinely ‘alone’.  I’ve seen how they act.  My people may be my greatest wealth….

The purpose?  The most honest answer to that is, I reflect on the number of things that seem designed to break my mind or my spirit or my self-confidence..and I’m still here. If my heart is still beating, I’ll keep going…

When I saw the writing on the wall, for the first time in a long time, I felt fear.  Bad things will happen of course, but as long as steer clear of being completely reckless…it’s truly, all on me now. Everything I’ve wanted is genuinely on the table. It’s all about the discipline.

I start naming names, I’ll either leave someone out, or undersell someone’s influence or importance.  If you’ve read this far, then know I appreciate the impact you’ve had on my life.

On to the next.















One more, irresistable Neptunes beat to start your weekend.

Start my vacation this weekend.  I have some of my favorite scoring music set up for you next week. I’ll try to drop it on you in my free moments.

In the meantime, have a good one folks!




So who’s up for some music?

Few different pots on the stove right now; what I’m cooking will reveal itself in due time.

Meanwhile, one of the most perfect pop songs of my younger days hit the Shuffle so we return to the audio section of this thing with this here.
