I freaking love it. Click HERE to buy this track from Amazon Music.
So I put up the YouTube video of Alt-J‘s Breezeblocks a few hours ago, (here is the link if you missed it), and of course I started listening to some of their other stuff. Their 2012 album “An Awesome Wave” is excellent. The song “Breezeblocks” that got me hooked originally, and the “Tessellate” sold me completely. But these are not the only two good tracks on that CD, they have a bunch of very good songs on that album: “Something Good”, “Fitzpleasure”, “Bloodflood” and “Taro” now in my Best of the Best playlist, in addition to the earlier mentioned “Tessellate” (my favorite) and “Breezeblocks”.

And here is the official music video for my favorite track: “Tessellate”.
This track got me hooked on Alt-J. I am going to post a couple more of the must haves later.
You heard it right, its free. And you know how much I love free stuff. I used to pirate my stuff, but now I find it a lot easier to have a streaming service that has literally anything on a moments notice. The 21st century really broke through the entertainment industry. The availability of on demand content, first to your home cable box, and now to any hand held device that is connected to the internet, really eliminated the need to download and store gigabytes of mp3s. Nowadays, you just click a button, say “OK Google, play me … “, and the music starts. What more do you want? Ohh yeah, you want it for free too. But you can afford internet, what’s another couple of bucks a month. Anyway, I’m not asking you to reach for your wallet right now. Try it for a month, see what you think. If you think it’s worth it, keep it, if not, no harm done. Click on the link below, and if they ask who referred you, say Konstantin sent me. They know me well.
This is truly terrible. Jennifer Psaki, the former spokesperson for the US State Department is now an “expert” on CNN. This is the same woman that never had any clue of what was going on. She always had to “check with the office”. I knew she was worthless when she threatened to land the 6th fleet “on the coast” of Belarus. (In case you do not know, Belarus is a small, land-locked country in the Eastern Europe. It has no access to the coast.).
Just found this amazing documentary on Ricky Jay on YouTube. If you are a fan of magic acts, especially card tricks, you MUST watch it. If you prefer to watch your stuff on DVD, HERE IS THE LINK to it on Amazon. If you are in the real world, and internet is widely available in your immediate area, you can STREAM IT from Amazon Prime too.
