The weekend is here!

Getting things done, so one song this weekend.  It’s getting super beautiful, super quickly in Cali right now, so this feels right.

Have a good one folks!

Ramadan 2018 is within range.

I have a lot to say, but still a month to go, so for today, patience…

And we party walk…

Enjoy!

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.

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!

Here are this year’s nominees for Best Picture:

Call Me By Your Name

Darkest Hour

Dunkirk

Get Out

Lady Bird

Phantom Thread

The Post

The Shape of Water

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Who I’m Cheering For: Come on…

Who Should Win: Last year (I think) established unless you have ‘Titantic’, nobody really knows until the envelopes are (double) checked.  ‘Dunkirk’ is the most traditional feeling Best Picture.  ‘Get Out’ is the one we’ll still be referring back to years from now.  Actors love ‘Three Billboards’ and percentage wise we have the most votes.  Take your pick…

Who Will Win: I’ll call ‘The Shape of Water’.  Across all the branches, this one feels the most respected.

Enjoy the show!

Here are the nominees for Best Actress in a Leading Role:

Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water

Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Margot Robbie – I, Tonya

Saorise Ronan – Lady Bird

Meryl Streep – The Post

Who I’m Cheering For: I don’t know if anyone here completely ‘doesn’t belong’ this year.  I’ll go with Robbie just for proving (again) she can do more than be the sexpot.

Who Should Win: Let’s not underestimate being a leading character who’s a mute means.  I’d say Sally Hawkins here.

Who Will Win: McDormand.  The people love her and she only seems to do films now once every few years.
