Ok..so I know, and you know that I’m a huge Marcus fan. There is something in his music, voice, emotions he brings out when he performs that is just captivating and purely brilliant.

This is one of the main reasons why I love to hunt for his live session videos on youtube, and today I came across an old one, but still perfect in its rawness.

 

Thanks to the guys on The Mahogany Blog for catching up with Marcus and creating this little piece of pure musical genius-ness.  :-)

Rollin rollin rollin
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them doggies rolling
Rawhide
Rain and wind and weather
Hell bent for leather
Wishing my girl was by my side
All the things Im missin
Good victuals, love and kissin
Are waiting at the end of my ride

Move em on (head em up)
Head em up (move em up)

Cut em out (ride em in)
Ride em in (cut em out)
Cut em out (ride em in)
Rawhide

Keep movin movin movin

Keep them doggies moving
Rawhide
Dont try to understand them
Just rope, throw and brand them
Soon well be living high and wide
My hearts calculating
My true love will be waiting
Be waiting at the end of my ride

Drummer jokes – selection of my personal favorites

I’m a drummer.
Perhaps a better way to put is that I am an aspiring drummer.
Then again, my goal is not to play professionally – or even in front of people. I just want to play to relieve the daily stress, but play the best to my abilities.
Because of my attitude and approach towards drumming my friends started coming up with various jokes. Some are crafted just for me, but there are also tons which they picked up along the way and can be used to tease any drummer you know.
Since I heard them all, some already got to my favorites list. Here is just a selection of the ones I love the most.

Top 7 Female Drummers of All Time

Female drummers are almost an oxymoron. Good female drummers definitely are – at least according to top drummers charts scattered around the net.
As a young girl interested in music, I never considered drums as one of the means to express myself. I had no real life examples in drumming world to which I could compare myself to, or strive to become one day. Drumming wasn’t considered feminine, and comparing myself to Neil, John, Carl or Keith just wasn’t an option. Copying Joan Jett, Janis or Lita Ford was the only thing on the agenda for an aspiring rock chick.
Later, when I realized that no guitar, bass or keyboards is a right fit for me, and that drumming is what I was “born” to do, I tried to look for new role models. It took some time, but I managed.
Some might argue that below list of my personal best still doesn’t compare to the ultimate drum beasts that dominate the charts. They might be right, but in order to break the era of male domination, we have to inspire girls to pick up the sticks and pound their frustrations away. In that way, we will raise a new generation of fearless and fantastic chicks who can win any testosterone filled bang-off out there.
So who are those (as we will refer to them in the future) pioneers of female drumming?

Exciting news!

Leonard Cohen is releasing his new album on January 31st, but we don’t have to wait that long to enjoy and relax in his melodic, raspy and tantalizing voice.

Columbia Records released his new tracks for free on SoundCloud.

You can check it out here in full.

Let me tell you..all you need is a nice, quiet room, comfy couch, a bottle of Jack and you’re all set - your hour of pure enjoyment may begin :)

First serve or better known as De La Soul just came out with their new teaser track “Pushin’ Aside, Pushin’ Along”
If you’re a true lover of oldschool hip hop you’ll probably love it as much as I did!

Anxiously waiting for the actual album to come out in the spring.

In the meantime…this soundcloud offers their mix tape which features beats/samples from some of the all time top hits…try to recognize them all :))

Also..follow the guys here: First Serve

It’s been a foggy week so far, so I did the only thing possible to brighten my spirits: scouted for new WATP videos online.

My love for their music is highly known already, so for more info about the band and why I love them so much, check out my ancient post here

btw…this is probably my favorite song of theirs, so I can guarantee…it’s worth a listen.
