morning babble / Friday 01-07-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!
One of the 3 things that I listed I’m grateful for – “Not hitting the snooze”. Simple little thing, but Wow – the time that is wasted away when you keep punching that snooze – don’t do it.
Another day down – all you Dry January people – here comes your first full weekend of 2022 without alcohol – good luck! 359 days until EXIT PLAN. This weekend is the first time in over a year of no Morning Babble. I’ll be coming back on Monday. My first weigh in of the year, my first run of the year, my first 3 Day Fast of the year begins that night.
New Music Friday:
- The Weeknd has a new album. Dawn FM is out today. Tyler, the Creator, Lil Wayne, Quincy Jones, frequent collaborator Oneohtrix (One O tricks) Point Never, as well as actor Jim Carrey. The title track spotlights Carrey assuring listeners that “we’ll be there to hold your hand and guide you through this painless transition.” Minute and a half and then hits into track 2 “Gasoline”, which so doesn’t sound like Audioslave’s “Gasoline.”
- Father John Misty’s new single “Funny Girl” (& video) out today – very chill song. It’s off his upcoming album Chloë and The Next 20th Century – full album on April 8th.
- Ben Rector – one of my favorite artists – released the first three songs to his upcoming album, The Joy of Music. “Living my Best Life” – we need some happy music. By the way, he’s got Snoop Dog on one of these upcoming songs. Full album release is in the Spring.
- Steve Aoki has teamed up with DJ Diesel for the song “Welcome to the Playhouse” Who’s DJ Diesel? Shaquille O’Neal. Not sure if there will be a full album coming, but Shaq did release four rap albums in the 90s including his debut album “Shaq Diesel” in 1993. It was certified as platinum. He did a collaboration with Michael Jackson. He’s also worked with Jay-Z, Method Man, and The Notorious B.I.G. So, besides the 4 NBA Championships, he’s actually done some musical magic.
