Flying Lotus - L.A. 1 x 3 EP Review

Here is a fact:

Most instrumental hip-hop sucks.

Unlike most instrumental hip-hop. Flying Lotus doesn't. This new EP (one out of a series of three) contains beats so organic you can buy them in Whole Foods and a sound so unbelievably stylish and cool that after hearing it you go to bed at night praying that when you wake up, you are FlyLo's new best friend.

Best Track: Rickshaw

Less Is More

So this weekend I'm moving out of my flat in West Ken into a house in King's Cross which saddens me greatly even though I'm looking forward to moving into my new place. I guess I'm upset because this area of London is the only place that has ever really felt like "home" to me, the only place that I've lived that I have felt a strong bond of attachment to. It's a great area: a quiet, friendly neighbourhood with a really strong sense of community. Plus, I have had some truely amazing times here, times that I will never forget for as long as I live. There will always be a place in my heart for West Ken.

Its been amazing.

Sad times

Teaching kids to drive-by

WOW! Words cannot describe how much I want one of these bad boys.
Whoever thought of a water-uzi seriously needs to get some kind of Nobel Prize. Amazing.
Apparently it shoots water up to 10ft and has roughly 50 shots in it so nuff fools gonna get iced.
You can get yourself one of these tasty little treats here.
