The Future Of Flying Lotus

If you have never heard of this artist, I suggest you check him out. His song entitled 'Baggage Room' was featured on an Adult Swim commercial and if you've never heard of Adult Swim, bow your head in shame. Flying Lotus is in my opinion, one of the greatest producers of music of his time. He combines a Dj Priemer like a ability to find the perfect musical samples, with his own unique twist. He has a very futuristic and new age sound that seems to draw you in while listening. I'm wonder if any hip hop artists will utililize this underrated talent virtually hidden from the lucrative mainstream. I think that it could turn out to be a very mutually beneficial endeavor for all parties involved, but what do I know, I just rate music and art.

Is Tom Cruise Too Old For Action Movies?

     This is the fourth installment of the espionage thriller series and sure to be the most explosive. Mission Impossble 4 has been doing extremely well in the box office, blowing away its competition. This is due to its controversial main character, Tom Cruise. This enigma of a man has been on an apparent hiatus and at the age of 50, still seems to be keeping up a good pace. Wether you love the dude or think he is weird, their is no denying his talwnt or star power. He has a string of highly acclaimed films attached to his name and can be found all over the web associated to one story or another. One thing is very clear about the MI4 star, he is a thrill seeking adrenaline junkie who has a strong urge to literally go out on a limb and complete his own stunts. It has been said that Tom Cruise declined the use of a stunt double for most of the action sequences of this film, opting to instead complete them himself. This is quite an impressive feat co sideromg the stars age. I do plan on going out and supporting this film if only for the fact that I grew up on the Mission Impossible fanchise and would feel left out if I were to miss the theater showing of such a widely popular cinematic event. Ill see you at the movie theate.

Christmas Time is here again

So once again it seems that the never ending cycle of holiday festivities is in full effect. From the holiday themed music in commercial advertising, to the gigantic and often obnoxious decorations in and outside of homes and businesses it is quite apparent. My question to the reader is: have you kept in mind the true meaning of christmas? Ofcourse it feels good to receive gifts and eat good homemade meals with your families, but keep in mind that there are those that have no new Iphone or Android. There are those without the new Air Jordans and new flatscreen televisions. I say that to simply give some a little more perspecive. This is a season to give and spread good will. Make sure to do any and everything that you can afford to. This will only benefit you in the long run and can be as simple as donating your old but well kept clothing to your local Salvation Army locations. There are also plenty of food banks in strong need of donations. Keep all of these things in mind during this very hectic season and be sure to wish someone a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa or Chanukah. You never know, this could be the highlight of their day. With all that being said, Happy Holiday's and good luck in all your endeavors of 2012.

I have a link to the charitable organization by the name of Autism Speaks. Please donate to the cause, even if it's just a dollar. Every bit counts.
