Man I’m real sorry for slackin so hard the past week or so. It’s been difficult to find time and inspiration to write about the stuff I usually write about on here because I’ve just been in such different circumstances for the past week. I was staying at my sister’s beautiful house with her beautiful new baby girl just living it up domestic-style nonstop. It is definitely an experience I’ll never forget, I’ve never spent that much time with a child so small before, and finding out how to interact with this tiny new life was an experience that I’ve never even been close to feeling before. I loved every minute of it.
What I wasn’t doing much of was listening to music. They just don’t listen to much music in that house in general, so I didn’t want to be too overbearing with the musical selections I made, and I’m pretty certain they don’t have much genuine fondness for rap, so I was playing a lot of older jazz and stuff along those lines. I certainly love that music too, but I just don’t have as much to say about it I guess, and it isn’t as interestingly connected with other music and stuff like rap is, so I just haven’t had much to say on here that whole time. Thanks for stickin’ with me though and checking back, I plan on getting back on track as soon as possible.
Now I’m in California for the next week or so, in a completely different but no less loving situation than last week, and rap music is much more accepted and appropriate in these surroundings than in the suburbs of the Pacific Northwest. So I’ll just toss up this little video for a song that’s felt especially right in the specific place I’m in right now. It’s really cool to me how listening to music from a certain place really feels right in that place. I remember visiting Wills and Draper and Olivia in Georgia a few years back and I’ve never been to a place where Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik felt more appropriate. This song feels just as appropriate up here.
Main Attrakionz – Diamond of God
Huh, I think I wrote about Main Attrakionz last time I came to California too. Ah well.
