Every year, there are a select few weeks between September and November in which I attempt to wear every light to medium weight jacket I own as often as possible. It's a task I commit to with the mindset of a one-man relay team, shuffling from jacket to jacket with the knowledge that once the first snowfall hits, I'll be buried under layers of knit and my Canada Goose jacket for the unforeseeable future.
Apologies for the belated Weekend Update post! The past few days were crazily busy, and there weren't too many songs I was enthusiastic about earlier in the weekend. Rather than lumping together a mediocre selection of tunes, I thought I'd hold off and spend my long-awaited free time tonight diving into the depths of the Soundcloud world. They say good things come to those who wait, and for you, my music-hungry friends, this couldn't be more true...
Ah, Thanksgiving... the best holiday of them all! From the turkey to the pumpkin pie, the cranberry sauce to the white wine, I am always overwhelmed by the amount of delicious food that floods my kitchen on this tasty day. As I write this post I am slowly slipping out of a food coma so deep that it rivals the Grand Canyon, thanks to a cup of green tea and NBC's The Voice (#TeamPharrell).
The weekend is the perfect time to sit back, relax and revamp your iTunes with the latest and greatest in music. Luckily, I've done all the work for you and hand-selected the tunes that should be at the top of your listening to-do list.
Fleetwood Mac's timeless songs about love and life have served as the soundtrack to my world since I was in diapers. I love the magical feeling that the opening notes of "Second Hand News", the first track on my all-time favourite album Rumours, conjures, and am probably more attuned to their discography than a baby boomer-era mother of three.
Lately, I've been scrambling to find reasonably priced tickets to the "On With The Show" tour (damn you, Stubhub resellers and the exam that prevented me from getting them at the time they went on sale), and in my quest to do so, stumbled upon a few cool and forgotten tidbits that I thought I'd share, since it's Throwback Thursday and all.
A wise friend once told me "Childish Gambino is a rapper for people who don't like rap music". I definitely understood his argument- as a stand-up comedian and Community alum, Gambino aka Donald Glover favours punch-line lyricism that's often received as corny and too mainstream-friendly. His style raises red flags for many hip hop heads who are well-versed in grittier acts such as Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul, but at the same time, he's not sensitive enough for the love-lorn Drake fanbase.
