    R Kelly – Feelin’ On Your Booty

    R. Kelly really needs to work on his titles. I’m particularly fond of “You Remind Me Of My Jeep.”

    It’s either an indicator of how old I am, or an indicator of how completely “not with it” or “uncool” or “unhip” or “so 20 years ago” or whatever the term is now, but I recognize exactly three of the names of artists on this Random Ten list. And I believe I’ve actually heard Ani Difranco sing and have seen a photo of her. Joss Stone and Busta Rhymes I’ve heard of, but that’s about it. This is not in any way to criticize the list, its contents or its author; it’s simply an observation.

    Popular-culturally, I’m clueless! Just thought I’d share that! ;)

    No way, “Feelin On Your Booty” is a perfect song title if ever there was one. It gets right to the point,you know? I can appreciate that. The song is amazing too, especially the end (“your boo-ty, your boo-oo-ty, your b-b-b-b-b-boo-boo-boo-boo-oo-ty”). Seriously, download it. It cannot be beat.

    Although I have to say, Trapped in the Closet is perhaps his greatest work to date. Has anyone else been following this remarkable piece of musical-drama genius? I can hardly wait for the next chapter.

    Bleh. You can have your R. Kelly. I just want to know if/when Blackstar is going to record again.

    Mos and Talib still perform together occassionally around NY, but the last time I saw them was a year and a half ago. As far as I know, they aren’t working on anything, which is depressing. I like to think that Mos is too busy planning his wedding to me.

    (and I was joking about the R Kelly this, he’s horrible. Just entertaining).

    Well, I was going to do a coolness rating this week, just because, but then song number 6 came up and killed everything. So here’s my ratingless Friday Random Ten™:

    #) Artist — “Song”

    1) M.I.A. — “10 Dollar”
    2) Fear Factory — “Edgecrusher”
    3) Sonny Rollins — “Sonnymoon for Two”
    4) Ravi Shankar — “Hey Nath”
    5) Khaled — “Sahra”
    6) Chris Cagle — “Chicks Dig It” (WTF?!?!?!?!?!)
    7) Trivium — “The End of Everything”
    8) Miles Davis — “Star Eyes”
    9) Dimmu Borgir — “Reptile”
    10) Type O Negative — “I Don’t Wanna Be Me”

    #6 is a demonstration of the dangers of using Yahoo Launchcast, I guess. Sometimes it just throws something totally out of left field at me. Fracker.

    Super-cool Bonus Track: The Roots — “Table of Contents (Parts 1 & 2)”
