i got that honey, that sugar, that spice.

For the most part I'm not really into very much hip-hop. I love me some Girl Talk, especially Feed the Animals (such a great album), but not too much else. It's not like I dislike it, it is just that so much contemporary hip-hop is so heinously sexist that I can't stand to listen to it. So anyways, when I come across some hip-hop that I do like, I tend to listen to it on an endless loop. And that's what I've been doing with these three Chiddy Bang songs.

Ironically enough, Chiddy Bang actually came to Wellesley last year and I didn't go because I really knew (or thought) nothing of them. But upon further listening I really like their style. And I'll be honest, I'm a sucker for sampling.

Also if you guys don't know about rapgenius you should look it up cause it is awesome. It makes me appreciate how much work goes into clever rapping about 300% more.

the return of the prodigal daughter.

You say I haven't really been blogging lately? Like for the last 8 months?


I reject your reality and substitute my own. Wasn't my post yesterday fantastic?! Thought so.

Anyways, I have been listening to covers non-stop lately. I'm not really sure why, it's not like there isn't a plethora of tremendously creative original songs I should be listening to. But I can't help it, they are magnetic. (This is not exactly a new obsession, though.)

So, without further ado, I present to your lovely readers (reader?), my top five covers right now:

Or Mark Ronson. Of course.

Yellow Ostrich - Blue 

Honorable Mention:

I can't decide which version I like better.

Also, what do y'all think of the new font? Cool or distracting? I can't decide.
