Podcast Highlight: The Sound Culture

I admit that I am far behind on a few things. Music, movies, fashion and whatever else that requires you to be in the know is not my strong point. But I’m content. Everything is new to everyone at some point right?

Well, today I discovered a podcast that I quickly fell in love with. It’s been around for some time so this isn’t some cool, underground type of thing. If anything I’m not really promoting the show, but just praising it. The podcast is “The Sound Culture“. It’s podcast featuring some of the best world music in, well, the world! Take a listen and you’ll hear some reggae, hip-hop, and electronica infused with sounds from the far East. Either click on the link above or take a listen here at Odeo.

Oh yeah! If you visit their website you can download all your favorite tracks from the podcasts. Bonus!

Back up and Quite Down *UPDATE*

Back up and quiet down. Thanks. (Updated)

*Here’s the link to the post w/ video regarding this post: http://wp.me/phpQ6-7G

I wish I had a video to publish with this post, but the issue at hand must be discussed. I want to bring attention to something that I feel effects quite a few Washingtonians. Have any of you ever arrived to a Metro station in the early morning and had to deal with 2 to 3 newspaper distributors? I mean one is enough, but when you have multiple men (as I have yet to see a female distributor) giving out newspapers it just seems like overkill! Now, I understand that newspapers like The Washington Post and the Enquirer need to get their papers distributed, but when they are blocking commuters entrance to a station there’s a problem.

Take me there.

I haven’t written a new post in who knows how long. Much has happened between now and my last post. Has it been an interesting span of time? I would say no, but there have been a few really cool things that have happened. Actually, just yesterday I participated in a three school discussion on two Supreme Court cases. Sounds simple, huh? Not quite. This discussion wasn’t one between the three schools involved but with three Supreme Court Justices. Yes, you read that correctly…THREE….JUSTICES! Read the rest of this entry »


OH DEAR!

Goshers! I’m so happy! Project Runway is back and I’m crazy happy. I may have to force myself to watch every single episode, but I don’t I’ll have to much to stress about. Well, other than the fact that I’ll be starting school in a week. That may get in the way of my PR watching habits. Especially because I’ll be at American Uni. and my regular high school. Oh yeah…two schools.

The fear grows more and more every day I get closer to the first day of class. But I can’t wait! I’m so going to hang with all the college kids. Can you say poser much?


Summer, Summer Go Away

This is how my summer looked and felt.

This is how my summer looked and felt.

The summer season is ending very soon as I can feel it in my bones. Also, clothing stores are selling off their summer collections like no tomorrow. That’s when you know the next season is coming. Crazy how stores control how we sense the changing of the seasons. For example, if I walk into my local CVS Pharmacy or equivalent during the month of September I’m sure I will see decorations for Halloween. And depending on the store I may even see some Thanksgiving crap. Oh, I am not over exaggerating (alrighty, maybe I am a little) but it does happen! The same happens with back-to-school sales and promotions. All the big computer manufactures and retail shops start spewing their “Gifts for grads” and other campaigns like that by mid-July. I can’t stand it. Let summer be summer.

Be patient.


Read Me!

This one goes out to those who have RSS aggregators that have way too many unread items. Yes, you know you have one of those. Either you lost interest in a particular feed or you just haven’t logged in a long time, I’m sure your unread count is out of the roof! Gosh, when I logged into Google Reader today, my count was at an outstanding 500 and something. I cut that number down by two hundred after deleting one feed entirely and marking another one as being read. Puppies and kittens die when feeds are un-subscribed, but it must be done. I know I always feel sad when I have to. Oh, if only I wasn’t so lazy and just read more.

Anyone have this problem? I know I’m not alone here!
