006_Hot, Buttered Soul...

I host a radio show called Hot, Buttered Soul every other week. I brokered an agreement with mixwit.com and after signing up and creating an account I was now able to offer those sets up to the public. It's been nice to document bi-weekly my mood in music. It truly lends to some very interesting insights. My most recent is that I love love. Yup. All kinds. I think it's the only answer...

So, without further adieu let me introduce the souls that are joining me on this magical quest to discover, as Andre 3000 would put it, 'The love down below'. I mean that in the sense that it is love that needeth uncoveringeth... it's way down deep and as you peel back the layers, the closer you get to the love down below...

Roy Davis Jr. | McFadden & Whitehead | The Jacksons | Willie Bobo | Organized Konfusion | The Pointer Sisters | Samba Soul | I Gres | Johnny Bristol | Secret Weapon | Larry Young's Fuel | George Benson

The titles are in the flow somewhere and if you listen along then you can play along - the name of the game is Name That Tune! ;)
It Rains Rain...

People get ready for it.
Ain't no stoppin' us now...
We goin' places... Where
you are, you're always there.

Go for a walk into the sun,
bask in it going down slowly...

Chove chuva means 'it rains
rain' and when it does, it doesn't stop.
Leaves me restless, weightless,
impressed and breathless...

No, that's that lusty lady,
must be the music... it's both.
Woman... turn off the lights
give me the night that has no end...
When it rains, it pours. There's a choice when it rains... slip on some rubber boots and splash about and have some fun or or just let it be since you don't have any control over it... just enjoy it. It's bound to rain once in a while and you've got to weather the storm, whether you're ready for the whether or not?! ;)

The all new Photoshop CS4...

I'm absolutely thrilled with my new upgrade to Adobe Photoshop CS4. I couldn't be happier. The collapsible menus that can have a myriad of custom configurations, the all new multiple panels... truly the only WYSIWYG pixel editors out there.

This new software makes it feels as if I were painting it myself... the art just flows out of me now.

Thanks Adobe ;)

Get yours now.

This is some really nice art direction...

Back up... it's one of those days...

(via kdiddy)

This is how I felt today. One of those days where you wish a mother trucker would cross you, just so you can drop heavy all over up in this herr' ;) I'm mad at all there is. How can the universe pluck strings and move skies just to come crashing down on me?! Ya, I know... I'm not that important ;) I'm just steaming here in frustration and don't get it. Glad it's just one of those days.

Tomorrow is going to be stellar after this one ;)

A thick ragu fest...

Just did a little revamp on an old design for an upcoming reggae night hosted at The Churchill Cellar, below Winston's, and put on by the few that are Momentum.

005_Hot, Buttered Soul...

I've been recently inspired by a 'swimmingly fantastic' presence that has only be known to me for moments at a time. In these moments however, time stands still and the insulating warmth that I feel slowly grows a smile.

Music has always been an outlet for whatever emotions one goes through. I find that the soul sisters of yesteryear and today have an ability to communicate the feelings that I have inside and can't quite lasso the words to describe them well enough. So I thank the following people for joining me today:

Isley Brothers | Marie "Queenie" Lyons | Mary Jane Hooper | Barbara Acklin | Common | Roxanne Shante | Gladys Knight & The Pips | Zapp | Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns | Citizen Cope | KC & The Sunshine Band | The Sisters Love | Patti Jo | Betty Davis

The titles are in the flow somewhere and if you listen along then you can play along - the name of the game is Name That Tune! ;)

Swimmingly Fantastic...

That lady who swims fantastically
Leaves me in a frenzied fever.
I've got what you need, a mind weaver.
Love makes a woman and i am music... infinitely.

So, go on girl, what's the story? Please tell me,
Who is she and what is she to you?
I'm gonna be alright, you cool?
Get up for the down stroke and you'll be set free.

Every time I see you, you're all dressed up
And looking good, boogie shoes too.
Give me your love, make me believe in you
It's the anti anti love song, half full is my cup.

Embarrassing when you get caught telling the same swimmer how good she is at what she does...

Just Souled Out, Again...

While I was travelling I came up with the original Souled Out promotional materials. I was recently asked to create another implementation of the Souled Out nights hosted by the physician named Jason aka Dr. J.

Get yours before it's Souled Out.

Z-Trip has a posse...

A letter and a mix from Z-Trip:

"Recently, Shepard Fairey and I threw some fundraisers for the Obama campaign. We called them "The Party for Change". (If you don't know who Shepard is--among many other things--he is the one responsible for the image on the right).

I've been wanting to put the mix I've been doing at these shows online, in hopes of spreading the word to people who need to hear it most. So, here it is:


I encourage you to download it and pass it along to anyone you think should hear it. Feel free to burn copies, share it with friends, family, co-workers, strangers, and especially anyone you know is on the fence about this election. I'm also putting out a radio friendly version, in case anyone wants to broadcast it.

Please share the message. Educate those who may not know what is really going on. There is still time.

If you, or anyone you know, isn't registered to vote, I encourage you to make it a priority and fix that before it's too late. This election is WAY too important for anyone to not get involved. If you need more information on how and where to register, vote, or participate, please check the links below.

I honestly feel if we make our voices heard, this time WILL be different.
