My weekend was all about hanging with some cool people, seeing two concerts, and
then making up for it pulling an all-nighter. Was it worth it? Most certainly.
I started on Thursday evening captivated by Honey’s radio blog
Anger, Sadness, and Hope, and because she and a couple of other people mentioned
it, ran out the door to the Apache Cafe. I worked myself into a stupor on Friday,
and then after going to Apache Cafe yet again on Friday night, I got to see Anthony
David, Jiva, and Donnie…..
…as if that weren’t enough, I started out my Saturday having two awesome conversations.
I started it out by an impormptu breakfast with the one and only with Bomani,
one of the coolest brothers you’d ever want to meet. And then, to put icing on
the cake, five hours later, I got to hang with another cool brother by the name
of Johnathan. I thought it would
end there, but it didn’t.
On Sunday, after chilling out with my friends for breakfast, I then got to email
back and forth with my cousin and then chill with Donald
who recounted his experiences that Katrina has placed on him. After all the cool
people I met during the weekend, and all the good food I’ve had, what happens?
I end up pulling an all nighter, which is what I’m doing now. What’s keeping me
awake while I’m waiting on co-workers? Music of course.
01 – Blaze – Elevation. Again from Soul
Heaven Presents Blaze.
02 – Tortured Soul – Why, per request from Johnathan, since I dropped
03 – The Sunburst Band – Thin Air. Instrumental from Until
The End Of Time. It took a lot of time and more than a little money to find
this CD, and I’m convinced it’s one of the best CDs to come out in 2004. I equate
it to the same vein as Tortured Soul.
04 – Larry Heard / Loose Fingers – Dreaming Of Better Days.
05 – Alice Russell – What We Want! From the just released CD, My
06 – Jiva – Free Falling. Saw these cats perform this past weekend. From
thei new CD Sun & Moon. Check
07 – Bruno E – Alma Featuring Xanton Blanq. From the just released Alma
08 – Sandboy – Call Out. From the just-released Echoes.
09 – Jafar Curry – No Longer In Love. I mentioned him
