Evening in downtempo: Androcell Imbue Altar Records

Staying in this evening, as I’m emotional exhausted from being in public all day long. I need to wind down and get ready for 2015. I haven’t been able to listen to much downtempo for the majority of 2014 so I completely skipped the release of Imbue. You can listen on YouTube but it makes more sense to buy it from the band camp site.

Have a listen, you’ll feel like your doing some soul healing.

Altar Record has this available in a CD format. I’ve been burring a load of CDs recently and would rather just have a CD but I find myself going over the artwork. It was done by Jack Shure. I read his artist statement

Art for me is a practice of alchemy, not only with the mixed mediums but alchemy of the soul. With art, I am constantly processing, healing, transforming and transmuting. When I create a painting my goal is to give the viewer a portal or gateway into a sacred realm, to give them a piece of my interpretation of the sacred space that I have experienced. So that they may find their own sacred space within to listen for the subtle, but potent message that art can teach us about ourselves. When we paint with an open heart and mind we see into who we have the potential to become and we put it all on the line for the world to see, silently.
– Jack Shure

I can’t think of an artist more suited for the artwork of this album. Androcell is always someone I’ve listened to during a transforming point of my life. Heard him play in Texas as both Androcell and Distant System sets. Totally bad ass. Would love another weekend like that. I didn’t why I focusing on finding good downtempo to listen to. I’ve had a slew of changes happen this year so I need to go inward. I just need a break from my typical hyper state of relaxing as the cold comes in.

Androcell is a divergent, ambient / downtempo music side-project that began in 2006, constructed by electronic producer Tyler Smith a.k.a. Distant System.

Lick it: YouTube channel NCIFiRestArter’s Psy-Ambient Grove

Been on the (Google) alert for new downtempo and NCIFiRestArter’s Psy-Ambient Grove is a youtube channel that has gave me a great mix on Monday and today I have Bodo. Definitely follow this youtube channel for more downtempo. I haven’t been disappointed yet.

I went on a click spree and found this gem on Bodo’s sound cloud page. PERFECT WINTER WEATHER SOUNDS! I’m loving the natural sound-scapes in this one.

 

Check out more from Bodo on the Facebook.

Leave it: Polar Vortex is trying to keep me indoors!

I am wrapped up from head to toe and sitting here trying to figure out how many layers of clothing I need to make my way out tonight in Dallas. I personally can NOT stand cold weather. I have several friends going to spend the weekend outdoors dancing around in cold weather but I declined. I do not enjoy anything about being cold – except shopping for boots. I have been reading about great gear for outdoor running and I just scan thinking, “I would DIE!” I would die. I’m too tropical. Every single year I get an ear infection from being outdoors – just that one time – and I have to ride it out. I’m on the hunt for some posh winter head wear. Tonight I dropped by Academy (to avoid traffic really) and found a Magellan Outdoors infinity scarf to wear tonight. Then I got caught up in a sale so the green Nike shirt was an essential purchase, oh and look capri leggings – I need a new pair, then I saw the p e r f e c t royal purple gym bag that I need since I like to keep an entire week worth of work out gear in my car. So this is the haul:

It is very clear that I will NOT be doing any fitness outdoors. I will however be running from my toasty car to the inside of local businesses all weekend long. This all could of course change as I adapt with the polar vortex.

Stay warm!

Who is Kim Kardashian’s big huge naked booty hurting?

#BreakTheInternet

Foto kiriman Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on


I’m reading that someone from Hollywood, I don’t watch tv but heard it was an actress, said that Kay Kay was someone’s mother LIKE THAT WAS A BAD THING. As if suddenly being a mother means women shouldn’t be naked. If suddenly when a woman became a mother it automatically meant that she could no longer be sexy then a LOT of babies wouldn’t have been born after that first go around.

I grew up with a an extremely fashion forward mother and there were times as a child that I would just look at her and think, “Wow she really is confident! Can’t wait to grow up and be just like her.” Of course this photo is for the cover a magazine. If you have ever watch the reality show that Kay Kay is in you’ll know she is the most conservative person you’ve ever seen. This is a modeling pictures, she was a model to begin with – still is. I’m annoyed that anyone would say shit to anyone about what they choose to do. Everyone should always embrace their totally sexual goddess and fuck whatever someone else has to say about it. I kno w I do! I am not everyone’s ideal of hot but there only needs to be one person that likes me.

Whoever this person is saying that Kay Kay needs to feel shame or put on clothes needs to really focus on their own work and be someone that has a name that means something. (Ugh, yes, Kay Kay is a star known for being famous for being famous but it’s obvious the woman works and travels tirelessly.) I can’t stand when females want to tear down other woman. Plus we all know that this person spouting all this trash would be happy to have her butt crack on the cover a magazine – baby or not – and it just flat out being an asshole because she knows that the media wants to jump on any hate shit written on American’s Favorite Woman to Hate.

Now back to important topics. Booty! Plus thisperson looks like Kay Kay anyways. LOL

Rachael Lust: I’d watch sports if hoop dance was the half time show

I don’t watch sports often because I’d rather play them. This week Rachel Lust was the half time show! The half time show is why I’d ever watch a game (like Beyonce, Madonna, M.I.A. during the Super Bowl half time) because I don’t remember who won or even played but I can never forget the half time show (M.I.A flipped the bird ha ha). This week Rachael Lust (known for her breaks) performs during a Houston Rockets game. Sick!

2014-11-06 Halftime Performance Rachel Lust from Houston Rockets on Vimeo.

Rachel Lust has an upcoming breaks workshop in Austin, TX November 15th, hope to figure out a way to work that 4-7 PM workshop in that weekend.
