happy 33rd birthday to the beautiful Beyoncé, whose latest artistic masterpiece has forever changed my world— breathing life into me every day in ways I never knew were possible, and continuing to push me forward through my own personal feminist revolution.

Queen Bey, I love you and am eternally grateful.

"I had ambitions to set out and find, like an odyssey or going home somewhere… set out to find… this home that I’d left a while back and couldn’t remember exactly where it was, but I was on my way there. And encountering what I encountered on the way was how I envisioned it all. I didn’t really have any ambition at all. I was born very far from where I’m supposed to be, and so, I’m on my way home, you know?"

sometimes when you have a bad day, you just need to go to the record store and buy yourself some presents:

The more I listen to electric Miles, the more I hear bits and pieces of his music in Fear of Music/Remain in Light.

In the intro of Miles Runs the Voodoo Down, I hear Drugs.. (especially in the live version on disc 2 of The Name of this Band is Talking Heads). I hear parts of Spanish Key in I Zimbra or the live version of Born Under Punches. (plus, DB mentions others making comparisons between Remain in Light and On The Corner in How Music Works, so I know I am not alone.)

We took Yuja Wang, the ultra-glam pianist (seriously, those stiletto booties), to the Steinway & Sons factory in Queens to play some fierce and fiery Prokofiev on a new instrument.

Daddy Rollin’ (In Your Arms) (1968)

Who knew Dion (of Runaround Sue and A Teenager in Love fame.. yes, the same one) could sound so dark and psychedelic? This song is KILLER. Apparently, this song was written around the time he kicked his heroin addiction. 

This one’s kind of multi-dimensional. It can be a love song or it can be about drugs. I recorded it in the back of a bowling alley with a bunch of Jamaicans. We were banging on cardboard boxes. I had my Gibson Birdland guitar and we just let it roll.King of the New York Streets

Lesson: never ignore the B-Side
