morning babble / Friday 07-01-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
Last night, my wife and I went out for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. We had dinner at Snuff Mill – Restaurant – Butchery and Wine Bar. If you want to try, you have to book a reservation and bring money. I mean – it’s a nice dinner out! Driving around, I began playing my Morning Babble playlist – a bunch of songs that my wife hadn’t heard before, but I listen to every morning before I babble.
184 days until EXIT PLAN
I did meditate. (video clip) I so wanted Michael Hutchence to be holding a card that said “Meditate” – he did not though. Anyway though – Day 1 of the Waking Up app – it’s from Sam Harris – author, philosopher, podcaster, not the singer.
New Music Friday:
Music News – R&B Singer R Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years in prison following a conviction in federal court last year on sex trafficking. When’s the last time you heard one of his songs? Just the other day – I heard “I Believe I Can Fly” – 1996 song from the movie Space Jam.
- Hard rocker, Shinedown – their 7th full-length studio album: Planet Zero is out today. As promised – a lot of music is on there. Nearly 50 minutes of new sounds divided up into 20 new songs. As mentioned before, the majority of the record is drums, bass, guitar, but there are piano songs – we got “Daylight” recently and I actually added that on my Morning Babble playlist. Today, we get, as Brent Smith sings in the song – the four letter word – “Hope.” And as I also stated before, Brent – that’s an awesome name.
- Last night at midnight after days of being teased, Cardi B Released ‘Hot Shit’ Featuring Kanye West And Lil Durk. The song is apparently going to be on her upcoming album which is still unknown for the release date. It’s catchy. (Video clip) – I think that’s all I can play.
- Last year, Imagine Dragons dropped Mercury Act 1. Fans accepted it . . . mainly because it was . . . you know – Imagine Dragons. But – Act 2 dropped today. More upbeat, more moving, more like the past sounds of Imagine Dragons, but still fresh. We already got the songs “Bones” and “Sharks” which sort of dictated the direction of this 2nd Act. The song being pushed today is “I Don’t Like Myself” – I enjoyed the storytelling and feelings revealed throughout that song.
- Lastly, this song . . . I can already hear it in the clubs . . . if only I went to them. Yesterday, Charli XCX released “Hot In It” – a collaboration with Dutch DJ Tiësto, which as actually a part of his upcoming album. The song has instantly become a TikTok favorite.
“Tonight, I’m gon’ be rockin’ it, droppin’ it/Shake my ass, no stoppin’ it” More chorus. “I look hot in it, hot in it, I look hot in it.”
