Substitute Post, Replacement Blogger – Go Dodgers!!

For some reason Stephone was unable to do his own work so I am filling in for him. My name is Josh and I don’t believe in Twitter or Facebook. I’m old school, I actually call people and I suck at texting.

I DO work in the media industry in Los Angeles and I have been lobbying for him to move down here. He is trying, but this industry is a tough one.

Since I own this post today, this is my way.

THE DODGERS WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!!!

Stephone’s ANGELS suck.

The Angels should have made a move at the trade deadline for some bullpen help.

I don’t know what to do. He really didn’t give me a layout on what to post.

*I’ll give you 5 fun/interesting facts about him*:

1. Stephone instigates like no other.

2.  He LOVES the Angels, Raiders, USC, Lakers, Ducks. In that order.

3. He can have a serious conversation with you, IF you ask.

4. He has more female friends(hot ones!) THAN guy friends. Makes no sense because he is one ugly mofo.

5. He has a good head on his shoulders for being quite emotional.

Bonus one:

People go crazy for Jordan’s…He goes crazy for Puma’s.

I hope those facts gives you a little bit more insight about Stephone.

I also hope he doesn’t ask me to this again on short notice.

Here is MY favorite video.

I’m done.

Finished.

OUT!!!!!

Friday, Friday, Friday

I took a break from the blog.  It has been a busy two weeks and I had to sacrifice something. I’m back though, better than ever.  I must warn you that I won’t be back until Wednesday. When I come back I shall break down what has been going on. It will include: drinking in SF, football in Berkeley and hanging out in Sacramento. Each one was pretty amazing.

After I post, I will be GONE. I will be out-of-town, it’s been a while since I was able to just get away. I thought to myself, what would be perfect for this. This legend came to mind.

Had to keep it clean for the kids.
Happy Friday!

Is Music Dying? Or Am I Just Old?

“Honestly I don’t even listen to rap, cause when I turn the radio on, out comes crap. And if you make good music that’s ok, but on the radio that they don’t play”
– B.o.B, Generation Lost

B.o.B is a former underground Hip-Hop artist who is now mainstream. I own a couple of his mixtapes and they sound great. Some studio albums he came out with are pretty legit, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray and Strange Clouds. Unfortunately, most of his good songs does not get air time.

One song that I really like:

Another artist who is finally getting love, but kind of doesn’t,  is Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.

This gentleman is the definition of hard worker. He has the title actor/writer/comedian/rapper.

  • He served as a writer for 30 Rock.
  • He plays the hilarious Troy Barnes.
  • And he is the straight-forward, Childish Gambino.

Proof, performance in LA:

Sorry, about the freeze shot. I don’t control YouTube.

Still, if my memory serves me right I have only heard at least two songs on the radio. That, till this day, does not make any sense to me. We have the likes of Justin Beiber, Drake and Celly Cel playing every five minutes.

It seems that good, real, music is considered Rebel Music (Yes, I borrowed that from  Wyclef Jean). Decade of solid music here, not so solid decade there. Music is a cycle, now is not our time for good, solid music. Hopefully, there are some hidden talents that are trying to be discovered that is all about heart and soul, not fame and fortune.  The heart and soul are what Childish Gambino and B.o.B. are about. It’s just a matter of time before the MASS audience will really listen.

Side note, as I finish this, maybe one or two songs have hit the airwaves from B.o.B. as my friend just told me.

Shows how much I listen to radio, I’m strictly a iPod person. I can create my own playlist there.

Maybe music isn’t dying. I’m just getting old  and not with the times.

Bonus from Mr. Glover, singing on Community:
