“Don’t Ever Tell Anybody Anything…”

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.”

You took the words out of my mouth, Jerome.

I’m speechless.


Favorite Songs of 2009.

Or, the year I spent too much time watching MTV Tres.  Way to kiss off the decade, right?  Heh…

1) Lady Gaga – Paparazzi

2) Phoenix – 1901

3) Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind

4) Annie – Songs Remind Me of You

5) Bomba Estéreo – Fuego

Their recorded stuff doesn’t compare to the live shit, so initially I was disappointed by Blow Up.  But after a few spins I couldn’t stop listening… They did a MBE set just a while back, you can listen/watch here. I didn’t know how they would handle the interview portion because it’s very clear that they don’t know English well, but Simón handled it deftly.

6) Sean Kingston – Fire Burning

7) Bat For Lashes – Daniel

8) Alexis & Fido – Ojos que no ven

9) Daddy Yankee ft. Jowell & Randy – ¿Qué tengo que hacer? (Remix)

Which I’ve already mentioned like a million times, IDGAF!

10) Aventura – Su veneno

11) Gepe – Las piedras

Unfortunately, I find this Gepe video incredibly goofy. The song is really good though. His label, Quemasucabeza, has the Las piedras EP for free here, if you wanna hear a more polished version.

Some others, in no order:

Plastilina MoshPervert Pop Song
Gustavo CeratiDéjà vu

ShakiraLo hecho está hecho
Los Amigos InvisiblesMentiras

Noli Me Tangere.

Much love and respect to Jay Smooth for producing this vid. Que Dios lo bendiga. He’s really gone above and beyond what everyone else has been discussing in the whole Chris Brown/Rihanna abuse situation (and if you go to the youtube page for the vid, there are links to resources on domestic violence). This video was so necessary and it is full of TRUTH.

And to Elizabeth Mendez Berry, I don’t read Vibe so I missed “Love Hurts” when it first came out. But y’all better believe that, when I read the article in the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2006 collection, I was captivated and I thought it took mad chutzpah to say what she said. I really hope everyone watches the video and tracks down the article. It’s totally worth it.

Did y’all have a good Valentine’s Day? I am lucky to say that I had a sweet day, and I can only wish the same to you.
