Shakira and Rihanna’s New Music Video Made Me Feel Things

This video was better than most soft core porns I’ve watched. Not that I watch a lot of soft core porn, but you get the point. The chica from Colombia and the beauty from Barbados need to team up more often, because now every music video I watch will be a terrible let down. For now, let’s enjoy the music.

Here’s the Full Soft Core Performance of Lady Gaga & R. Kelly’s ‘Do What U Want’ From SNL

I’d love to say that R. Kelly is back, but you and I both know he never left. If apron sales don’t skyrocket by 1000% this week then I have no faith left in people. Yes this performance should’ve been on Cinemax and not NBC. And yes I loved every second of it.

Tyler The Creator: 5 Things You Didn’t Know

– via BuzzFeed

One thing we knew before this, is that Tyler is definitely insane, but he’s sure as hell fun to watch. The guy never stops working, and now he’s teaming up with Fox to create the animated short 5 Things You Don’t Know About Me. Creativity never sleeps, and I’m glad to see someone with his talent spreading his wings.

Alexa Ray Joel Has The Voice Of A Sweet Princess

I inherit a beer belly and a borderline obsessive personality. Alexa Ray Joel inherits the voice of an angel. Just singing a beautiful cover of her Fathers hit song for Gap. If I had to hand pick one celebrity’s genetics I’d like to inherit it would be Billy Joels. The total package and then some.

P.S. Is it weird that I’m attracted to Alexa Ray because of who her father is and not because of her looks? I don’t even know who I am anymore.

Monsterblog Wednesday: Favorite Summertime Jams

The summer and music go together like a fine wine paired with an aged cheese. In other words, they’re made for each other. Everyone has their personal favorites, and the Average Nobodies are no exception. While certain songs work during any time of the day, there are those special jams that help get your day started and others that never fail to relax you. Here are our favorite daytime and nighttime summer jams.

Daytime Jam: Weezer – Island In The Sun

Classic jam from a classic band. This song had always been an ideal sunny day relaxation nation beer in hand type of song for me. I also have a sick obsession with playing songs over and over again, and on a hot summer’s day, this song is no exception. Plus it has the words “island” and “sun” in it, so you know it’s good.

Nighttime Jam: Dave Matthews Band – Crash Into Me

My favorite song from my favorite band. Just an absolute gem. I can’t think of a better song to wind down too after a long day at the beach. Literal music to my ears. If you can’t get down to Dave Matthews, then you have no soul.

Daytime Jam: Sublime – Santeria

The proof is tattooed on the inside of my right bicep. Sublime is by far my favorite band. They have a song for every kind of mood that I am in, and Santeria happens to be my “daytime summer” mood track. Just listen to this song and get lost in the day.

Nighttime Jam: Atmosphere – Always Coming Back Home To You

Atmosphere has some deep tracks, none deeper than “Always Coming Back Home To You”. Slug paints you a picture worthy of the silver screen on this one. Nothing is better than summer nights while getting lost in the Atmosphere.

What I’ve Learned In My Short 24 Years

756,864,000 seconds, 12,614,400 minutes, 525,600 hours, 8,760 days… and 24 years.  Thats how long this guy has been, crawling, walking, running, and…..walking on this Earth.  Bare with me, this might be all over the place.

It’s hard to hold down what I have learned over the years so I will tell you what I have found to be true.  Life is different for everyone,  what works for one person, may not for the other and vice versa. Trying to emulate one person (say your hero or idol) is never going to work, instead take and steal from many people to create a person that is uniquely you. Play up your strengths and in doing that, find out what your weaknesses are; your weaknesses are what give this unique person you see in the mirror everyday.  Take time to listen to yourself. I’m not trying to be all introspective and hippy here, but seriously, take a second and talk to yourself.  Ask yourself questions, and answer them with the truth.  Please, if you do this out loud to yourself, do it in a room where no one else is.  I’m pretty sure they stopped burning witches at the stake, but I could be wrong. I digress.  Lose yourself in some good music and explore new kinds whenever you get a chance.  I have always found music to shake things loose in my head when I need it the most.  Be unpredictable, if you want to try something, try it. If you want to go somewhere, get in your car and go.  I’ve found this type of thinking to make me the most happy.  Don’t let anything hold you back.

The last thing I will leave you with is something I learned from the great Gary Vaynerchuk.  Do what you are passionate about.  If for one minute you are doing something that you don’t 100% love doing, even if it is just a 1% dislike, stop doing it.  Life is too short to do something that you dislike, even if its for one day.

The culmination or trial and error is what shapes me today and is what will shape me in the future.

There’s a trick to being whatever you want to be in life. It starts with the simple belief that you are what or who you say you are. It starts, like all faiths, with a belief – a belief predicated more on whimsy than reality. And you’ve gotta believe for everybody else, too – until you can show them proof. If you’re lucky, someone starts believing with you – first theoretically, then in practice. And two people believing are the start of a congregation. You build a congregation of believers and eventually you set out to craft a cathedral. Sometimes it’s just a church; sometimes it turns out to be a chapel. Folks who don’t build churches will try to tell you how you’re doing it wrong, even as your steeple breaks the clouds. Never listen.
