I’ll admit that I’ve watched every episode of the HBO series “Girls.” It’s a guilty pleasure and it dawned on me, vapid, shallow, horrible people being horrible to each other Girls is a fictional prequel to the Real Housewives of NY. In fact so much that I’d love to see a mashup with the other HBO series “True Detective” wherein the scene where Marty is given a flask to drink through watching a graphic crime, is swapped with scenes from Girls.

I may have failed to post about the passing of jazz giant Yusef Lateef but it did not go by without my notice. And thankfully a myriad of others were much more johnny on the spot with their tributes, including one of the hardest working men in the game, Giles Peterson (a giant in his own right). Here he blesses us with a tribute mix to one of my all time favorite jazz cats. You should also check out some of Yusef Lateef’s essays and visual artwork. Peace Mr. Lateef, you sure enough deserve it.
Colorways. As soon as I saw the name and cover I knew, Jonathan Handel (GustoNy.com) has a kindred spirit in me cuz I’ve been meaning to put together a zine in the same vein. Colorways is a dope photographic study in color and ‘street’ photography. The shit pops. But don’t take my word for it, check the whole thing out online…

Here’s some new music, some from old artists, some from new, some solo stuff from artists you know from other bands (such as Massive Attack). You’ll figure it all out I’m sure. Cuz I have not. Peace, suckas.
