It turns out writing blog posts on a regular basis is really hard. The more you actually do during the day, the less time there is for writing (who knew?).
Blogging without a bull-whipping editor behind you requires serious motivation — or readers who IM you a few times an hour asking what the hell happened to the updates (thanks Mike-O) :)
I have sudden newfound respect for bloggers everywhere — except you Matt Drudge. Your giant headlines still suck, even if you do update them 6,000 times daily.
But enough talk, more rock:
Track 1: Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked
Artist: Cage The Elephant
Sounds Like: Citizen King, Rehab, and Jason Mraz jamming in an Austin juke-joint.
More: Remember that song “Curbside Prophet” by Jason Mraz? Blend it with Citizen King’s classic “Better Days” and the White Stripes “You Don’t Know What Love Is” and give it a gutsy blusey catchy slide-guitary sweetness. And clocking in at just under 3 minutes, these guys know radio-friendly.
Track 2: Wavin’ Flag
Sounds Like: Wyclef Jean and Bob Marley sharing a spliff with that guy who sang the chorus in Shaggy’s “Angel” (girl you’re my angel, you’re my dar-ling an-gel — who was that dude??).
More: I’m a big fan of this guy — not too many dudes rapping about Somali pirates these days. At least 3 solid singles on his album Troubador — super fresh sound.
