April Thoughts (OE)

I’m a simple man, mostly with headphones on and a laptop in my lap. While the headphones were off this past weekend, my mind was in a couple of places. I’m stealing OE’s from ManNMotion since he does it so well…..

Daylight Savings Time:
You know, I thought it was still April Fools Day because I lost my damn hour this weekend. It’s a cruel joke. Father Time must have been drunk or something. I must have done something wrong in a previous life. I looked on eBay to see if someone had it for sale but I haven’t seen it there.

I always tell myself I never go see enough movies, so I went to go see ATL. A film with Chris Robinson as director, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Dallas Austin, and Will Smith as producers, and Mykelti Williamson acting in this movie too should prove to be interesting, right? Right.

I wasn’t looking for an award-winning picture and I didn’t get one. I wasn’t looking for stellar acting and I didn’t get any of that. What I was looking for was just a good time, and that’s what I got. We’ve seen better pictures, that’s for sure, but this pic was a step in the right direction. The flick had enough one liners, music, and scenes to make it enjoyable. This is thumbs-up from a southern guy so take it for what it’s worth. Whatchu say?

I’m travelling up to Philadelphia the end of this month. I don’t need any red carpet. A good Philly Cheese Steak with some Tasty Cakes for dessert will work. If you’re gonna be around, holla atcha boy!

I was going to say how they have too many shows like The Apprentice on television these days, but then I realized that I watch The Apprentice, The Apprentice UK, The Next Food Network Star, and Top Chef. I need professional help. (Notice that I don’t mention America’s Next Top Model. I’m not quite on that wagon.) I will tell you one thing- Grey’s Anatomy has been consistently in my top 5 since it’s inception, and even more so since they played Crazy by Gnarls Barkley in one of their scenes. What other show do you know can mix surgeries and Cee-Lo in there? I’m jus’ sayin….

Music, Mixing, Life:
You know I’m a music fiend, right? These mixes and podcasts are totally new to me. I do take requests. Doesn’t mean I’ll have em all, but lemme know what you want to hear and I’ll try to get it on- past and present.

  1. so glad you’re sharing a bit about yourself and your life – it’s far more intriguing than you think! Still struggling with DST myself, so not a whole lot to comment on before bedtime – except: thanks for reminding me about Philly. And ATL is firm on my spring travel list!

  7. Nikki says:

    I would love some Minnie Rip in a mix. Some OS LuvJams. Philly at the end of the month? Hmmm, I think I might could catch up with you (and Zun!).

  12. chica says:

    I so love The Next Food Network Star! I’m still yawning…Daylight saving time is kicking my tail!
    I can’t even think of a request because you do such a great job introducing me to new (to me) music and reuniting me with songs from the past! Thanks!

  13. EJ Flavors says:

    @dj diva – yeah, Greys Anatomy is all that. ANTM, if i’m sitting down and it’s on, i’ll check it out…
    @nikki – we needs to hang, forilla! you know the local bloggers will meet in a restaurant in a heartbeat. i’ll put my feelers out and see what happens.

    @chica – good, then i’m not alone! thanks for your support. i always hope i do you proud!

  14. Big Daddy says:

    Back from Denver and anxiously awaiting the new fix tomorrow. If you think DST is tough, try beating that AND jet lag! Dang! I’m still not awake. To H-Town next, but at least it’s in my time zone.

  15. Bernard says:

    As the snow swirls outside… yes, snow… we northerners don’t know when to turn off the machine…. I was thinking about how my “lost” hour wasn’t so bad this weekend… watched the entire first season of “Drawn Together”… so what, I was in the mood for mindless and vulgar. Hope I can catch up to you in Philly at the end of the month… I’ll be there for the relays and events.

  16. ManNMotion says:

    Man, that time change got me too, especially after my trip from XXXXXX, XX. I lost 4 hours instead of 3 and I’m still not right.

  17. Honest says:

    Don’t you just LOVE MNM’s OE posts. I love, LOVE Grey’s Anatomy that show has surpased even the Sopranos on my top 5 list.

  18. Morena says:

    This whole podcast thing? I gotta get on board. How come I never knew that was the Dazz Band singing Heartbeat?! Wow! LOL
    Requests — I got some of those – ol’ SOUL style:
    Delegation – Oh Honey
    Smoke City – Dreams
    Eddie Holman – You Make My Life Complete
    Brainstorm – This must be heaven
    And a relative newby:
    David Josias – Mindblowing
    Would love to hear these if you can find ’em!

    have a great weekend
