Not That, Not This

Site Status: Now Live!

Forward-Ever-Backward-Never

Glad to report this site is up and running once again! From the post counts, you can see it’s been dormant for too long. Plagued with endless CSS issues, hacks, etc.; it became too much of a chore to keep with it. New host, new theme, new beginning! Endless gratitude to my bro’ who offered…

Now Playing on the Hi-Fi

“…No matter what games they play We’ve got something they could never take away We’ve got something they could never take away It’s the fire, it’s the fire, fire That’s burning down everything Feel that fire, feel the fire, the fire, the fire…”

Crate Diggers

Fuse

Back in December 2012, I dropped a post about Fuse’s Crate Diggers series. Check it here. In the time since, they’ve featured additional diggers and I thought I’d shed some light on it as I’m addicted to watching these.Those featured since include DJ Nu-Mark, DJ Babu, House Shoes, Adrian Younge, DJ Rhettmatic, Diamond D, Kid…

Inna Ruminations Stylee

Quasimoto - Yessir Whatever

Inna Ruminations Stylee has been a long time comin’ since the last one (9 months to be exact and 8 months before that one). Minimal time gets spent on the Web clicking away reading/watching/listening to this, that and the other; however, here are a variety of things I bookmarked on random occasions since mid-2012. Dust &…

Bling47 Break: Dilla Edition

Been hooked on listening to people talk about records since watching the Crate Diggers videos. Waajeed of Platinum Pied Pipers (PPP) and Bling47 is the man behind these creations that feature various people associated with the great J Dilla chat it up about their favorite breaks chopped and served up by the master himself. Nearly…

John Peel’s Record Collection

John-Peel’s-Record-Collection-The-Space

Guess this was launched back in May, but I happened to just come across it this week. The John Peel Centre for Creative Arts takes us on an interactive journey of John Peel’s record collection and the experience is astounding. Dumbfounded at the attention to detail put into this project and the level of content…

Crate Diggers

Vinyl!

Crate Diggers series on Fuse! Hella dope! Loving the commentary throughout and laughed at being able to relate to some of the obsessions they mention as well as being a fiend for vibrations. While mine has largely been in formats other than vinyl (the ol’ crates of wax haven’t seen any additions since moving to…

It’s been a helluva long time since I dropped a ruminations post. Eight months to be exact. Spent the latter part of last year at home in the U.S. and have been busy since my return with this, that and the other. However, the following things have crossed my path in past months. Some are…

Movin’ Forward

The Nerones!

Thanks to the help of my bro’, the Goldbrick is up and running again! Yeah yeah! Everything except for the Gallery that is, but it’s comin’ along soon. If you care to do so, drop a comment to offer your appreciation. That’s him on his hog with me and my son in tow during our…

Technical Difficulties

More posts are comin’, but not until the Dashboard of my WordPress starts to function correctly. If you have any solutions as to why it is not displaying as CSS, then let me know! Surprised I was able to even get this short message posted! Hang in there, more vibes to come! ******************************************************** Turns out…

WCLK Atlanta: The Jazz of the City

DJ Cam Quartet

Been chillin’ in the ol’ stomping grounds of the ATL for the past few weeks and my normal flipping through the crates has been on hiatus. Instead, WCLK has been dominating the hi-fi. Love revisiting the sounds from Clark Atlanta University, especially The Soul of Jazz show, in the late afternoons, hosted by Jamal Ahmad…

Inna Ruminations Stylee

Tim Timebomb's RockNRoll Theater

Just as in the last posting, way back in April, flooding continues to remain an issue for Thailand. While it was in the southern area earlier this year, it is presently the central region that is in a crisis state and the water is now moving into Bangkok with the situation worsening by the day.…
