Songs of Love and Healing

It just so happens that the baddest rappin reggae superstar on the planet right now is a hasidic jew from NY. The guy’s name is Matisyahu and he tears shit up. Click on his site and watch the live video of “King without a Crown” and you may be amazed.

Also, I learned from reading the Upstate Life that Matisyahu will be rockin the 9:30 club on Christmas day. Now doesn't that sound better than Chinese food and movie.

Speaking of rap superstars, apparently much of the violence in rap is due to the fact that rappers stay up too late. No more partying until 6 in da morning will supposedly do wonders for their surly demeanors.

Continuing with the music theme, Imoan just put up her best of the year music list. Spoony better watch out becuase much of what she plans to listen to in 2006 is that weird indie stuff that us odd people enjoy: "Arcade Fire, Death Cab for Cutie, Kanye West, Gorillaz, Rilo Kiley, Bloc Party"

If your lookin for more yearly lists, Fimoculous has become the one stop shop for tons of these year end lists.

Sunday was the greatest tivo-filled day ever. Never has a twin-tuner DVR been more useful. It all started with the 1:00 NFL games and my fantasy team FC Donkeys (obviously) battling for the final spot in the fantasy playoffs (we won). During those games I also recorded and watched the Maryland soccer team playing for the NCAA National Championship, and saw an exciting game down to the last minute (MD won). Next came the Skins game at 4:00 with the Redskins battling to keep their playoff hopes alive and needing a huge special teams play to pull it out (Skins won). At 6:00 came the Wizards battling the Miami heat in Shaq’s first game back from an injury. Gil Arenas and Caron went nuts, as usual, and the Wizards took the heat into overtime before losing due to some fantasy foul calls against Shaq (only loss of the day). Finally, in the 8:00 nightcap, the Maryland basketball team had a huge ACC face-off with the sixth ranked team in the nation and ACC newbie, Boston College. Maryland got huge games from Ikene Ebekwe and Mike Jones (who?) and beat down the number six team in the nation for the fourth win of the day. Overall, my DVR went 4-1 on the day and I logged about 12 hours of couch time. What a day.

Finally, I havent forgotten about you Rove. Consider this my monthly reminder that Karl Rove is still under suspicion and an indictment may be looming. Lets all hope for a white mothergrabbin’ Fitzmas this year.

No you got it confused. I like the indie stuff even more than you do, Spoony is just scared of it - see my 2005 list below - indie all over the place.

Hey Redonkulous,
I greatly enjoyed your writings! You are very witty and clever. You had me laughing out loud and nodding my head in agreement quite frequently. Keep writing and making people laugh, it's a wonderful gift!
