Man this summer is flying by and I’ve never been more busy in my entire life. I saw that new Lil’ Mama video with T-Pain where she is either paying tribute to or blatantly ripping off the neon-safari scene from this CLASSIC Busta video.

There really is no one else quite like him in hip-hop or music in general. Unless of course, George Clinton, Buju Banton and KRS-One conceived a baby together. Also I’m kind of bummed he chopped off his dreads.

Get it here.

 


Last week facebook announced the (un)anticipated new site layout that they had been kinda-sorta-maybe hinting at for the past few months (i.e. “change is coming…”). The “future” of the profile? Doesn’t get more apocalyptic than that does it?

Well, when Mark Slee, Product Manager for Profile changes (what a job!), linked to screen shots of the new tab-based site, the Facebook Profile Previews page and the accompanying video in his blog post, the greater majority of the facebook community lashed out once again. As we’ve seen, it’s perfectly predictable and healthy obsessive compulsive behavior on the part of facebook’s members.

But will this be worse than the day the News Feed came into existence?

Possibly.

Will you wake up with dozens of invites to join groups called “1,000,000 People Against Tabs”, “Boycott Facebook” or “New Facebook=SATAN”?

Count on it.

Your thoughts?

Really?

I’m loving MTV’s new Buzzworthy/Artist of the Week promos featuring Portland’s The Gossip. Even though, the buzz has been “worthy” for over a year now. If you can, check out the video where lead singer Beth Ditto explains how those of us born between ’80-86 who are musically active are successful products of the Michael Jackson musical revolution. I knew listening to Thriller on repeat as a three year old would pay off. My favorite The Gossip remix (done by Soulwax) below.

 


 


I know this feature has been available on Facebook in the friend finder for quite sometime, but I really hate that it now permanently lives on my welcome page. There’s enough things to worry about on there, like birthdays, events and hilarious status updates.

It’s no coincidence that the people showing up in this window are people I’m not friends with for a reason. Take a hint, Zuckerberg!

ZING!
