Neon Indian – “Should Have Taken Acid With You”
Though I’m wavering on how real this video is, my skepticism allows for just enough suspension to appreciate it either way. (Thanks to Marina for the tip)
The least interesting thing a blogger can ever do is explain a scarcity of blogging, so I’ll save it. I will say that I’ve been inundated with new music lately, that’s quickly suggesting that this arbitrary 12-month period of evaluation will likely eclipse the previous one. I’ll get to it all soon (*knock wood*). For now, with a few stolen moments, some quick bits…
Because only in my dreams/nightmares do all of the above converge, here is some of the randomness that is Lil Wayne’s ESPN blog.
On his latest tattoo:
“In honor of Jimmy V Weekâ€”and because I find him so inspirationalâ€”I went out and got “Laugh Think Cry” tattooed above my right knee. It’s pretty big so I guess you can say it’s on my right thigh. In that last speech he gave that’s what he says you should do if you want to have a full day, and that’s a really smart thing and I wanted to celebrate him by getting the tattoo.
On his next tattoo:
“I’m also planning to get “Cannot touch my mind/Cannot touch my heart/Cannot touch my soul” on my back. I’ve got a big tattoo of the state of Louisiana that’s not filled in, so I’ll probably get it in there. Oh, and I’m gonna get also gonna get the famous Vince Lombardi quote about “Life’s three important things are family, religion, and the Green Bay Packers” tattooed somewhere. I got a body suit of tattoos so I always find space. Shout out to my tattoo guy, Duel, for always doing a great job.
On the economy & the recent moves by the Mets:
“These baseball meetings have been very interesting because of the effect the economy is having on teams not wanting to give guys five and six year deals. I think agents are working on securing their players’ future, but if it was me I’d live in the moment, take a short deal now, and then hope to re-sign in two or three years when the economy is better. I mean, there’s a chance the economy won’t get better, but I don’t like to live my life thinking negatively like that.
I’m a big fan of the Mets signing K-Rod. That was a smart move for them because they’ve got all the talent in the world but they’ve lacked that killer instinct to push them over the top.
Last but not least and certainly the biggest revelation of all:
“The whole Plaxico thing kind was crazy because immediately afterward everyone was talking about the legal implications and what are the Giants going to do with him now, and no one stopped and said, My God, this guy just shot himself. Is he okay? Was it stupid? Of course. I mean, I accidentally shot myself when I was twelve and that’s a scary lesson to learn. But before you go yelling at him and talking about his punishment for being so stupid it’s like, Guy, is your leg okay? I was amazed no one was asking that question. The guy just shot himself in the leg!
