O's , Skins, Dance and New to me Songs

How will the Redskins bounce back after loosing a close game last week due to a player throwing the football at the other team when the team when in FG range? I don't know but that is what I will be watching, with my attention also being taken by the Orioles, the most magic summer in years, to me it feels like 1979- well except for my knees and that now I don't fantasize about playing for either the Skins or Orioles since. It is great watching games go into extra innings and the Orioles finding the right combination to win the games either on the road or at home.

Yesterday I attended my first Dance competition at Peabody's in Virginia Beach,Va and it was an amazing show put together and hosted by Guerilla Will.

Last night was a great reminder of how much fun it can be in the entertainment business. I can't wait for the October 8th show with Flosstradamus

 Also it has been fun finding several new to me songs to play for DJing.
Trap or um trapish - I am still learning- but these 3 songs are getting replayed everytime they come up on my iPod.
"Chill" by Trapzillas -click to listen 
"Bubble Gun"- Apashe & SNAILS - click to listen
"Baptism"-Crystal Castles Sound Remedy Remix - click to listen

Alternative Rap or something- whatever don't let my words discourage you from sampling this hypnotic blend of beat and verse
"Candles" - Jez Dior click to listen
Pure Pop or pop, dubstep and some hip hop or whatever- a good uptempo blend
"A Night Out"- Martin Volveig featuring Ludacris A Trak & Clinton Sparks remix- click to listen


So many good tunes out there I have yet to really digest the new maps on Call of Duty

Oh I also started a Sound Cloud page - uploaded some miserable attempts at mashups along with some fun sound bites - Click to visit

OBX getaway /Lawler update and Lawless review

Spent parts of 3 days in the Outer Banks - got to drive around Duck and sit in line to take a ferry(we actually never got on the ferry- just watched some girl adjust her swimsuit bottom for a bit and watch dogs deposit their previous meals) - after waiting an hour or so we turned around and drove back thru Rodanthe and Pea Island . The major accomplishment of the journey was our friend Al taking lead on cleaning the car- it is a whole new vehicle.

Since he was dedicated to watching Monday night football - we decided to go to the cinema - we took in Lawless 

Lawless was set in Franklin County,Virginia. I grew up in Franklin County. Franklin County has forever been known as the moonshine capital of the world. Hell we even had inactive stills on our property in Ferrum. This story follows 3 brothers and their fights with other bootleggers and the law(corrupt men with their hands out) during the prohibition era. This is a violent movie about a violent time, 2 romances are thrown into the mix- but really this is about the menfolk proving their machismo or whatnot. Although this movie namedrops Burnt Chimney and uses the Rocky Mount hotel as a major set- it was filmed in Georgia. I did not love this movie nor would I want to watch it again- although I would rent a DVD if it had a historical documentary about Moonshine. This is not a prequel to Thunder Road nor essential viewing.  C+

I will be DJing tonight with DJ Luke Shay - here is his own tune for free download on soundcloud- check it out .

IN Wrestling News and tidbits

One of the more shocking moments of the trip was provided by the vicarious nothing of WWE Raw when longtime announcer Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack during the broadcast. He is recovering and according to tweets and facebook posts from family members and friends is recovering and he did not suffer brain damage according to the same source material. A great documentary worth checking out is Memphis Heat - it covers Lawler and many others in the Memphis area during the 60's thru the 80s. Memphis Heat was my fave wrestling DVD or 2011.
