I really wanted to get to number two zero last month for my mixtape project but off course didn’t and this is the first one this month which we are now half already. So my mid-week blog post is one closer to twenty! It’s got 99 in black pen on the top right corner so that’s the year 1999? Then also written is the very informative two words of “some songs” in very small letters. That’s really helpful, what else is it going to be is what I want to know?

Side A:

#1. Matt WalkerAll By Myself 

#2. Matt WalkerListen To The Night

Opening two tracks from his debut album from the late-90’s by under rated Aussie slide guitar player Matt Walker which I can’t find him on YouTube but the whole album is on bandcamp to listen too, if you wanna?

The Rock-Rap Fusion of Aerosmith and Run-DMC

Sorry…probably don't have time for a post today so I'm just reblogging this great post I found. Anyway, hope you enjoy it and see you tomorrow.

Old time rock and roll

Aerosmith manager, Tim Collins received a call in 1986 that would not only impact Aerosmith and Run-DMC, but the music game as a whole. On the line was 22 year-old Hip Hop producer and entrepreneur behind Def Jam Recordings, Rick Rubin.

Somewhere Else #9

I know, I know. Holiday ramblings was meant to come tonight. But I didn't have time, so it's coming in the morning (eastern standard time). Meanwhile, here's a great poem by DumCheese to fill the space.

Rileys Backpack

Sunlight is draped over the room

In it comes, with the force of a typhoon

Those who thought to stare down it’s rays

Only ended up in a blind daze

On and on, day after day, week after week

Somewhere always felt the sun peek

Though often personified, it remained emotionless

Though never aware, it helped relieve stress

Though less appreciated, it kept doing it’s job

Through thick and thin, it will never stop

It seems to me we spend our whole lives waiting – Cristian Mihai

Found this post on Cristian Mihai’s blog, and it’s really great. Definitely worth a read.

Cristian Mihai

It seems to me that we spend most of our lives waiting. For some mystical alignment of the stars to create the life we’ve always imagined for ourselves. For someone to come into our lives and make us unimaginably happy.

We imagine into existence a certain future we deem ourselves worthy of experiencing but we never do anything to actually create it.
