Seasons

Shaggy is back! The early 00's Reggae-pop sensation has released a new single with OMI (of the song "Cheerleader"). The new Shaggy joint is called "Seasons," and it lacks a bit of the catchiness that it takes to rule pop music. But, it's not horrible. And I imagine that Shaggy will take that.

I have a bundle of photos to share from between Feb. 9-14.

Sooner or Later

Aaron Carter recently released an EP "LØVË" and discussing it in an interview he intimated that Justin Bieber somewhat owed him for paving the way, and that Bieber even copied him in some ways. That's awfully ironic, because one listen to "LØVË" and you'd think that it was a Bieber album. Despite being 29, Carter certainly sounds like a copycat version of the 22-year-old Canadian. None of this is to say that Carter's EP is bad. Far from it. I actually kind of enjoyed it, especially the song "Sooner or Later." I mean, he is no Bieber, but still good, plus it also gave me a chance to travel back down memory lane and listen to some of my childhood AC joints. "That's How I Beat Shaq" anyone?

I have a number of photos to share from Feb. 2-7. Enjoy.

House of Cards

It was 10 years ago when Radiohead released the revolutionary "In Rainbows" album. Not only was it revolutionary for its price (a penny), but for the new sound that the British band delivered. It was pretty much uniformly praised by critics, and was a mainstay on college airwaves. As a college student at the time and Radiohead fan, it was something I needed, and I'm truly grateful for it.

I have several photos to share from Jan. 26-31.
