and away we go
I heard Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on THE RADIO
today. Pretty exciting. I remember the time when I used to hear a new song on KROQ, get my tape player ready and wait for hours for it to come on again. Now, I read about a great new grime riddim, then download somebody else's pirate radio rip. Has it come to this?
Ruff Sqawd ft. Wiley- Together
I thought Cam'ron had the Police sample game sewn up, but I was wrong.

What does this say about the facebook? It's mostly white, young, and it enjoys very popular music. It would be easy to make fun of this list of competent, white, middle class musicians, just as it might be easy to make fun of the kids who listen to them. Easy, but a waste of everyone's time. Snobbery has got to be one of the lowest forms of criticism. I mean, Number Four is like All-Time Number One, and Dookie
has a special place in your heart, right?
This post got kinda scrambled. Here

, and here
's somebody that doesn't like the best song
on their album.
