(Richmond-San Rafael bridge from the San Quentin end)

So, today fucking sucks! (I warned you.) Like, seriously!  I hate being cold and clammy and not able to dry my clothes.  I'd rather have cramps or a sunburn on my ass ...  But anyway, how are you?  Do you have your tea?  Do you have a warm blanket to curl up under?  If you do, it sounds like you're ready to watch some TV.  I know hunkering down in my living room and watching stuff makes me feel better, so here is a list of some of my  favorite, rainy day comfort DVDs:

I have a huge soft spot in my heart for some of the classic Disney movies.  101 Dalmatians was always one of my favorites.  How cute is Roly asking for more food?
  "I'm hungry, mother.  I really am."
My brothers and I used to wake up early on Saturday mornings to watch this movie. (Keep in mind we couldn't get up and make it to school on time to save our lives, but you bet yer ass we were up on Saturdays to watch cartoons!)

I also love Peter Pan.  I always wanted to be a lost boy (or at least Wendy) and fly away.  "Second star to the right and straight on til morning."  Pirates, fairies and a crocodile with a clock in his tail... hell yeah!

Best Of 2007, Part 9 - Gomez Comes Alive! Picks His Favorite Songs Of 2007

Posted by Gomez Comes Alive!, January 4, 2008 02:13am | Post a Comment
In no particular order:

"Space Cumbia" - Poncho Kingz
(Sonidero Nacional re-mix)
A good song by the "so-so" Poncho Kingz gets a makeover. Best thing Sonidero Nacional has done since Celso Pina’s “Cumbia Sobre El Rio”

"Afrobeatnik?"- Gecko Turner

Like a modern day "Soul Makossa" without completely biting the original.

"Mi Sonsito"-Ticklah
This little known song is better and lots more fun than Lily Allen’s “Smile”

"Scared Money" - Saul Williams
One of the less bombastic songs of his Internet-only release. A simple roots-reggae loop behind his potent lyrics and it works well.

"Cumbia De Los Aburridos" - Calle 13
Nastier and almost as good as 2005’s “Atrévete."

"Arenita Playita" – 4to Poder
I must have listened to this song a million times over the summer. I’m looking forward to a full-length release by this Venezuelan band one day.

"Be Easy" - Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

We have Sharon Jones to thank for giving us the best lesson on pursuing love.

"Heater" - Samim
German techno meets Colombian Cumbia. XLR8R magazine put it best, “It was the only way the Germans would get introduced to Cumbia.”

"Café Con Sangre" - Jose Conde Y Ola Fresca

My personal favorite song of the year. Freshest Salsa tune I’ve heard in years.

AMOEBLOG PREDICTIONS FOR 2008, PART FOUR

Posted by Billyjam, January 2, 2008 10:55pm | Post a Comment
JACK WHITE & DAVE GROHL JOIN LED ZEPPELIN IN SAN FRANCISCO:


 In my wildest fantasy Led Zeppelin is going to go on one last amazing, kick-ass world tour. They will play at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and, as offered, Dave Grohl will be playing drums (that is, if Jason Bonham is unavailable). Waiting in the wings is Jack White to sing and play on a song or five. Jimmy, Jack and Dave on a stage together... that's my prediction.

RETURN OF THE OLD SCHOOL TO HIP-HOP'S RESCUE:


I predict that old school rap will come to the rescue helping to guide the music out of its slump. Also, i think there will be more old school film projects, maybe a Busy Bee movie or a Scott La Rock film.

RETURN OF VINYL, DOWNFALL OF HANNAH MONTANA, & MUCH MORE

TABLOID TALES: In 2008 Britney Spears, no longer hounded by a pack of paparazzi -- just that one guy she took back to her hotel room-- will be completely upstaged by lil sis Jamie Lynn Spears who will lead tabloid headlines for the next seven or more months. She will then be suddenly upstaged herself by the even more shocking, tabloid-ready real-life story of Hannah Montana (the alter ego of Miley Cyrus), who will have an unexpected and sudden, widely publicized downfall into drugs and sexploits. So shocking will this news be to the parents of tween fans of the wholesome Disney Channel star that there will be a huge backlash culminating in a Hannah Montana doll burning gathering at a Florida sports stadium in November with tickets to the event being as much in demand as Hannah Montana concert tickets were just a year earlier.
