Kendrick Lamar x Interlude

This dude is making some amazing art.

Lauryn Hill x Feeling Good (Tribute)

So, a few things to check for in this video for the casual watcher.
1. Ms. Hill is still probably one of the best performers on the planet.
2. The guitarist becomes possessed during his solo...and I'm quite sure his soul wasn't even in New York while he was playing.
3. The face one of the background singers makes when Hill starts skatting.  Pure admiration, disbelief and happiness.
4. The band man....get a whole bunch of musicians together for 5 minutes and god peeks in...

delorian rides

delorean rides

i promise.
i promise next time I'll be better.
to you.
I'll be the best.
you'll see.

of course next time isn't anytime soon.
next time we'll have different names.
and different lives.
next time is light years from today.
or tomorrow.
or the next 100 years.

but somehow I'll know.
the universe will know.
and I'll be better.
i promise.

by then everyone will be totally plugged in.
and i'll take you on an adventure.
like the old days.
by then everyone will be wrapped up in there interactive tvs.
and flying cars powered by the suns.
by then most wont know what an adventure is outside their floating homes.

and i'll come get you.
we'll jump in something called a car.
and travel down to earth.
and actually drive.
watch the suns spin.
we'll stop and have a picnic like we did before.
maybe listen to that thing called jazz that had long before died.
and we'll make love and giggle as the moon becomes our nightlight.
i promise.

i promise next time I'll be better.
to you.
I'll be the best.
you'll see.

Yeah Man...

Louis Farrakhan x The Breakfast Club

A great interview from the 82-year-old minister. And if you know nothing about him (but have an opinion based on zero facts) you should listen even more.

On Art...

"I don't want to produce a work of art that the public can sit and suck aesthetically...I want to give them a blow in the small of the back, to scorch their indifference, to startle them out of their complacency." - Ingmar Bergman

Jonathan Franzen on American writers....

"I don’t think any novelist, even Stephen King or James Patterson — they’re not writing for all Americans, but just the segment of Americans who read books." - J. Franzen

By far, I think David was the wittiest late night host in American history. Salute.


I mean, I almost needed a tissue for freaking trailer. Geez.
