I strongly recommend listening to ‘Flower Boy’ by Tyler the Creator.
It is my favorite album of work he’s done thus far, and that’s including some of the Odd Future albums. This album has been on repeat for the past week.
‘Who Dat Boy’ is one of the weirder songs on the album, and the video for it is very strange….
This song has been stuck in my head all week, so figured I should share…
Yeah Yeah, I know…..I haven’t blogged in a while…but I have news! I will be speaking at two WordCamps (thus far)!
First, I am the keynote speaker for WordCamp San Antonio. I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at this event. It was a ton of fun last year, and I strongly recommend checking it out. The venue is awesome, and the people were amazing.
San Antonio was a town I used to live in during my High School days. My memories from back then are a mixed bag, but I had the opportunity to spend more time in San Antonio for the past two years. The city has certainly changed!
It is an amazing city, with a lot of great food (TACOS!), very friendly people, and a lot of great things to do. WordCamp San Antonio happens on September 30th, and October 1st.
I am proud to note that several members from Pressable are participating with the organization of this event. The team has a strong sense of responsibility to the WordPress Community, and we feel we have the responsibility in giving back by spending their free time organizing this great event.
Second, I will be a speaker at WordCamp Philly! I have always loved WordCamp-ing in Philly. WordCamp US happened there for the past two years, and I went to the local WordCamp Philly the year before that. Some of my favorite people in the world live in Philly, and they always participate in the local WordCamp, so I can’t wait to see them. The Philly WordCamp speaker lineup is very impressive, and I suspect this event will be a “must-see” for those in the area. It will be on October 28th and 29th. I highly recommend checking WordCamp Philly out.
I just discovered this album on Spotify and I am loving it thus far. Good mix of alternative-folk/hip hop/ and modern R&B . Check it out!
Wow, I can’t believe Chris Cornell is gone! Soundgarden was one of my favorite bands when I was in middle school/junior high. I bought three copies of ‘superunknown,’ which is still one of my favorite albums of all time.
Here is the last time Spoonman was performed live, the night Chris passed away:
I made a playlist for work today and kinda love it. Thought I should share.
I love ‘Royal Blood.’ They are one of my favorite rock bands. I have been waiting for new music since their first album, and this song does not disappoint:
If you haven’t listened to the first Royal Blood album, and you like rock/alternative music, you should listen:
I was a part of the speaker panel at the end of WordCamp San Antonio, which was pretty cool! There’s a lot of really amazing WordPress folks in San Antonio and it was cool to share the stage with these fine folks. I don’t talk a whole lot but I share the stage with my fellow colleagues Zach and Claudia from Pressable, as well as notable speakers. It was a lot of fun!
Video comes from WordPress.tv which has a ton of great WordCamp talks. I highly recommend it for folks learning WordPress.
I cannot wait for the new album!
I love how the animation is getting an update, according to the single page they’ve posted on the web site. Hopefully Damon Albarn will tour with the new album and I will get to see him again (I’ve seen Gorillaz three times, but I’ve never seen Blur. 😦 ).
Well I feel old, but ‘Original Pirate Material’ is about to be 15 years old (as of March 25th). The album ages pretty well. I never got to see Mike Skinner live, alas.
