Radiohead Live From The Basement

Live From The Basement is a fantastic, intimate Radiohead performance. "The Gloaming" bit by Yorke is wicked. He's got the spirit of an MC. What really differentiates this live version from the original album cut from Hail To The Thief is the bassline and live drums - an infinite improvement from the original.

Check out the Stussy J-Dilla documentary series dropping here.

It's always a treat to hear stories about J-Dilla from his peers. It goes to show just how far reaching his music was and how much his music affected people.

Scattered Shots

I come across some very cool sites once in a while and this (food for the right side of my brain) is one of them. Animation is his occupation... Pixar stays winning.
This (snacks for the left side of my brain) is another. Now I wouldn't go so far as to say that Adrian Peterson is a "liability" to his team per se. But he sure was vs. the Saints D.
Oddisee's got a site. And a very good one.
R.I.P. Howard Zinn, the people's historian. The People's History of the United States is indispensible.
I caught a very interesting interview with John Mannion, Urban Youth Culture Photographer (?), on KPFA's Hard Knock Radio the other day. Pretty good stuff.
