In which I compare running a blog to my inability to care for plants

A whole week since my last post may not seem much, but once my mother left me in charge of her peace lily plant while she was away, and I went a week without watering it and it died. So here I am, watering the blog or some confusing ad-on to a rubbish simile.
ANYWAY, I've been a bit busy for bloggin', what with seven different projects to do at cpit and moving into an awesome flat at the same time. But let me assure you, some fine blogging is to come, much like when my mum returned from her trip, watered the plant and it came back to life, STRONGER THAN EVER (with plant strength I guess).

Also there was apparently a Wednesday at some point this week, so here you go:

This video was an artist model for my concertina book, and now we listen to Cudi in class all the time. I'm scared one day I wont be able to design WITHOUT his sweet rhymes. D:

Wednesday Rap!

Tommy Ill's new single "Robot (featuring a Robot)"

This video is totally rad, and the fact that Mr Ill is releasing an album and touring New Zealand is also totally rad. Plus, this video was released today, which puts me on the cutting edge of music blogging. Or I would be if I didnt still use the term "totally rad".

Wednesday Rap

I've recently lost my iPod. Of the many inconveniences this causes, the worst is riding the bus and having to listen to the sounds of the bus. The worst one of these was yesterday when a young man was playing terrible quality rap music on his phone speakers and trying to rap along. He was alone. The woman next to me actually put her fingers in her ears. And yet no-one could say anything. It's just the worst.
Anyway, heres something that ISNT the worst, and is quite good:

Last time I had tea I felt sick all day, but at least me not drinking tea means this guy can have more!! (the world works that way guys)

Overdue (again) wednesday rap!

Good grief! (insert picture of Charlie Brown here) I should just change it to Friday Rap and be done with it.
But I've already written the title, so too late! Anyway here's some mash-up mix tapes I found on one of my new favourite blog sites, Pretty Much Amazing.

First up: Lil Wayne mashed up with the soundtrack to (500) Days Of Summer: (500) Days Of Weezey.

And also: Notorious B.I.G raps over the entire XX album: The Notorious XX..

I wish I were an internet DJ so I could mash up Ol' Dirty Bastard and The Dirty Projectors. Ol' Dirty Projectors writes itself!
