morning babble / Friday 09-09-22
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!
No Jiu-Jitsu today – I did 3 days this past week and 3 days last week. Looking ahead to next week, my schedule looks good for a 5 for 5 week. BUT – the 3 day fast is next week, too. That’s going to make things interesting.
3-Day Fast begins next Monday (9/12) – Click here for last month’s fasting playlist!
114 days until EXIT PLAN
New Music Friday:
I put together a Spotify playlist of the songs that I talked about and thought about today for New Music Friday. Click here for that!
- Prince of Darkness is back. That’s Ozzy Osbourne. Actually, to promote his new album which is out in its fullness today called Patient Number 9 – last night, he was performing during halftime of the NFL’s season opening game between the Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills. It was to be a two-song set and was, but after NBC introduced the act, they only showed 10 seconds of Ozzy, who by the way, is 73. He looked propped up. Anyway – new music and the album includes Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Zakk Wylde, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, RHCP’s Chad Smith, and the late Taylor Hawkins.
- Via Yahoo Entertainment, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force returns this November with the movie Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm, and Run the Jewels contributed the opening theme to the film with the appropriately titled “Opening Theme.” Supersized fry – that’s a funny line. However, I have to claim my ignorance to this movie. I am not familiar with it or what it’s all about it. BUT – they got my attention by getting Run the Jewels involved. Here’s a link to go see the trailer for Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm. Oh and Run the Jewels – apparently, they are going back into the studio for another LP – yesssssssssssssssssssssssss.
- New John Legend album is out and called LEGEND and it’s a double album. 24 songs / Nearly an hour and a half of new music. I read an article today from Tim Peacock on uDiscover Music and he broke it down the best: “ACT I recalls vividly the worldly, sensual pleasures of Saturday night – full of lust, self, sex and adventure.” Then, “ACT II evokes the feeling of a Sunday morning, with its focus on healing, intimacy, soulfulness and commitment.” We’ve already gotten a couple singles out of this new album, but Mr. Legend is slotted to sing “Pieces” at the 74th Emmy Awards on September 12 (Monday).
- Country Music star Kane Brown has his 3rd album out today in its entirety. It’s called Different Man – 17 songs, hour of music. If you know me, I’m not the biggest fan of the country sound, at times, I’d much rather shove a pencil in my ear. BUT -this guy has blended the sound of soul & hip-hop into country. It really is something special. The album does include his first recorded collaboration with his wife Katelyn Brown – called “Thank God.”
Please subscribe on YouTube and spread the Babble wherever you can – Thank you!
