Day 16 of 10k everyday / Pepperoni Pizza! / New Music Friday: Ben Rector, Jon Lajoie, Killer Mike

morning babble / Friday 06-16-23

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!

Happy Weekend!

Some of you come for the running / I ran / #16 of the 10k everyday

Some come for the New Music Friday – that’s coming

And some of you come for the random babble – like Worcestershire

Speaking of random – it is Friday and as a family for dinner tonight, we order wings and pizza. My wife normally calls in the order, but the other week, she was not able to do so. My turn.

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!

  • Listed on Wikipedia – Jon Lajoie – he’s listed as a Canadian comedian, actor, rapper, singer, songwriter, director, record producer, musician and Internet celebrity. For singing, he goes by Wolfie’s Just Fine. I guess the label for his sound would be “Indie rock or folk”. I’m definitely intrigued. I’m enjoying the serious, melodic singing to go along with his comedic or satirical lyrics. The song being pushed today on Spotify is “Hulk Hogan Slammed Andre the Giant.” (clip) That’s funny, but totally digging the sound as well. Entire album is out today which is called: Everyone is Dead Except Us
  • Alright, let’s get happy (clip) That’s Ben Rector making Sunday sounding like a happy one – he obviously has never lived with a teacher – but Ben Rector – he is by far on of my favorite musicians – has a new album out. It’s a live one called Live from Atlanta, so no actual “new” music, but I’ll still take it. This guy’s sound has picked me up so many times in my life – I owe him something. (clip)
  • Couple weeks back, this guy – KennyHoopla – released a song called “You Need a Hit” but today we get another one called “Sabotage” and he’s got a little drummer on the ditty named Travis Barker. (clip) KennyHoopla – he’s the opener for some of the shows on the Blink-182 tour this summer. Not a bad gig. Just a couple people showing up there. (clip)
  • Quick Hits: A lot of Brent favorites have come out . . . Judah & the Lion – not sure if a full album is on the way, but I don’t want to get too greedy since they just had a new one drop a year ago called – Revival. Nevertheless, I’ll take the new single that they just released called “Heart Medicine” (clip) New Spoon – actually, a whole EP . . . a wanna be LP – we get 3 songs in total and slapped the name – Memory Dust on it and off we go (clip) And finally, Killer Mike (1/2 of the tag team known as Run the Jewels) released a new album today called: Michael – bunch of guests adding in their voices too – you have Andre 3000, Ty Dolla $ign, 2Chainz, El-P, and CeeLo Green (clip)

Thank you to Spotify, Rolling Stone, Apple Music, uDiscoverMusic, Pigeons & Planes, Pitchfork & I know there’s more.
