808s & Heartbreak 10 years to the day (all the videos!)

November 24, 2008, if I am doing my math correctly, that is 10 years to the day.

Articles aplenty on its lasting effect, notably this one from Genius, with many links within to videos: The Enduring Influence of Kanye West’s ‘808s & Heartbreak’.

Without further ado, check out all the music videos produced for the album:

Food and Music #1

I like food. It is kind of essential (joking tone, as, well, it IS essential to stay alive!). I also like music!

Things we like often finds its way in music (and other forms of popular culture).

With that in mind, I thought would start what I hope will become a series of ongoing posts of food and music.

To commence entry one, I made rice tonight (to go with other stuff), and it went rather well, my Instagram pic:

I like to learn how to cook things well, and, an that note, learn things in-depth (I will have to revisit the Good Eats rice episodes (Power to the Pilaf, Do the Rice Thing, and American Classics III: Creole in a Bowl!)

Thanks to Gordon Ramsay and the BBC for the help (videos below)!

Now, the music. There aren’t too many tracks dedicated to rice, there are lyrics with rice in them though, such as:

Rose gold Jesus piece with the brown ice
Eatin’ good: vegetarian with the brown rice

Kanye West on “Don’t Like”

 

Rice under black beans
Walked into Apple with cracked screens

Chance the Rapper on “Blessings (Reprise)”

 

Mama used to cook red beans and rice
Now it’s Denny’s, 4 in the morning, spoil your appetite

Kanye again on “No More Parties In LA”

 

So, for something that does not really have anything to do with rice save for the title which could be a reference to throwing rice at the end of a wedding, an artist I like, Cashmere Cat with “Rice Rain”:

St. Vincent – Laughing With A Mouth Of Blood, music video!

I got into Portlandia rather late in the game, and still I have not watched too much if it. Anyway, rewind to pre-Portlandia:

Brownstein and Armisen first met in 2003 and began collaborating on a series of comedy sketches for the Internet in 2005 titled ThunderAnt. The sketches became increasingly Portland-centric

In July 2009, the duo pitched their idea for a full-fledged sketch comedy show to IFC and Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video production company, and the project was quickly approved.

And, from NPR:

A few months ago, Annie Clark — a.k.a. St. Vincent — asked if she could do an in-store performance at the Women For Women First bookstore. WFWF is a fictional bookstore — created by ThunderAnt, a.k.a. Fred Armisen and myself — that is featured in our “Feminist Bookstore” sketches. Naturally, we obliged, and what came of it was a video for St. Vincent’s fabulous song, “Laughing With a Mouth of Blood.”

Anyway, watch the video!

From Actor, St. Vincent’s second album, released 9 years and change ago, May 4, 2009!

Also, it is my 2862nd daily featured video on Twitter, going back to August 20, 2010!

See many more here (constant work in progress)!

Punk Rock Wisdom: Youth Brigade – I Hate My Life

Anthony Bourdain: another high profile suicide. I only know him from television, but, he seemed like a solid individual.

This tweet sums it up well:

Of course, those with mental health issues, and depression must seek help. Suicide is a very unfortunate answer that causes anguish to those that loved and cared for the individual who took their life.

Odds are good you know someone who took their own life. And, odds are good you have felt low in the past, or even now reading this, and contemplated suicide, even if not necessarily very seriously. I have. That is where this song comes in. I will cut right to the chase.

Can’t work or go to school today
Can’t remember if I do that anyway
Got some money got no clue
The worlds a mess

When you are feeling low, it feels like nothing matters.

Complain complain life sucks anyway
If it’s all so hard, let them take it all away
Why the competition
Why stress to death
Be happy with what you have
Most have so much less

And, the poignant part:

I hope someday we realize how good it really is
Yeah I may hate my life at times but I always try to live.

The last line has stuck with me since I heard the song at some point in the 1990s.

Life can suck, it can really suck, it will have us saying fml (fuck my life) at times. And yes, thinking about ending it.

BUT

When life is good, life is great! Rocking out to your favourite song, chilling with friends, having that amazing moment when you call a crazy pool shot and it happens, etc. etc. etc.! These are moments WORTH LIVING for!

DO get help, do speak with someone, times may be tough, but, they WILL get better.

Listen to the song:

And read the full lyrics on Genius.

Rina Sawayama: New music that’s fit to print #1

I listen to a LOT of new music, okay, maybe not a LOT, but quite a bit (I am fairly selective), and, I like quite a lot of it (somewhat thanks to being selective and looking for stuff I reckon I will like, but also, I am quite open minded), BUT, I really really like not too much of what I find.

With that, a new blog series: New Music that’s Fit to Print! Fit to print, being a reference to days of yore, pre-internet, when printed page could certainly not contain everything (as is the case, or close, with the internet).

Anyway, one artist I am really into her after hearing her debut mini-LP is Rina Sawayama!

Wikipedia calls her Future Pop / R&B. The former seems apt.

Big things ahead for her for sure!

Watch this i-D feature, and then, my favourite track from the album at this moment (other tracks are subject to grow on me, like “Take Me as I Am” with it’s futuristic feel, and at the same time sounding like sampling Funky Drummer!), but, Afterlife is a GOOD one!

 

Still alive (and well)!

I just read a headline in my email: “THE BUSINESS CASE FOR BLOGGING.” And, although I do not have a business per se, I thought I should update this blog, and get back to writing more and getting myself out there in the various forms online (perhaps even offline, but that is another story).

With that in mind, here is a new blog post! I hope a few people will happen upon this that may have read my blog regularly, or happened upon it from a search engine’s results.

I am curious to see the ways WordPress dot com has improved since I last used regularly, so I will start with plugging a playlist of mine on Spotify that I update regularly:

 

Give a listen, and feel free to ‘follow’ it! Suggestions are always welcomed (comment here, or tweet me @tmmblog)!
