Recap

I never got a chance to say how great The Foreign Exchange was at Cat’s Cradle the other night. Absolutely loved the show.  I purchased the Darien Brockington album back when I first picked up Leave It All Behind.  He was impressive at the show.  After hearing Yazahrah at the show, I feel like she could have EASILY replaced Muhsinah on most of the tracks.  I might try to catch Yazahrah opening for India.Arie soon. Take the jump…

Impulse Moves.

leave a comment »

When most people refer to making impulsive moves, they’re usually referring to very small projects.

“Oh I think I’ll bake a cake.”
“Forget it. I quit.”

I’ve decided that I love Ryan Leslie’s new album…and I’m not the gushing type.  I tire of things fairly quickly…actually I’m going to change that. I tire of things at rates comparable to the speed of light.  Yet, I find myself playing this album over and over and over again.  My Last.FM scrobbler is probably gonna have that name BURNED into the window!

Well, I cannot find reliable tour info about him.  The websites I visited show two dates in March at S.O.B.’s.  Hmm…  If that’s the only time you plan to perform Mr. Leslie, I will have to save up my measly stipend and hopefully a tax refund check.  This morning I decided that I am going to NY next week or two weeks… whenever it is. I must be there.  Now this isn’t such a big deal, but that also means I must completely characterize my mutant library before I go.

Oh science, you make a girl’s dreams so difficult.

Ryan Leslie

leave a comment »

I have been following Ryan Leslie for a while now. I got the album a couple days ago – I don’t know how I let the release slip by me like that. I like to pre-order everything! I am truly loving it. Plus I like that some things have changed from the YouTube postings. I was surprised to hear the extra drums on I.R.I.N.A. at the end. Loves it!
Thank you Ryan Leslie for your musical genius which keeps me dancing around the lab, getting my experiments done.

Two thumbs up.
