Skyzoo - Speakers on Blast

"And now they wanna bring the nineties back. That's okay cuz that's where they designed me at." - Skyzoo

Nobody knows how This Bug gets when she hears something that is straight CRACK ! But you're about to find out. Driving home the other day, I heard Speakers On Blast and damn near had to pull over. Skyzoo is the truth. And hearing his name reminds me of early Wu Tang. I remember handing the cassette single for Proteck Ya Neck to my homegirl and she said,"Huh? Wu what? What is this, Jayne?". And my response to her was, "It sounds foreign to you now- but just wait. You'll see." You see how that turned out. Well, that's how I feel about Skyzoo. He'll be a household name soon enough. I got that refreshed vibe of the 90's with something extra for 2010 and beyond from him. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open. Plus, he hails from the much respected camp of Duckdown. Are you kidding me? His lyrics and production are air tight. He can't lose. Watch for his coming album "Live From the Tape Deck" dropping October 5.

Download Speakers on Blast here. I will not steer you wrong. Never have. Never will.

Coming Soon

Newsflash: This Bug is not especially savvy when it comes to time management. Because of this, I tend to lag behind in a multitude of tasks because I'm so busy trying to tackle everything at once. I hate it but at least I can admit it. Even Superwoman needs a helping hand every now and then.

These days I've been running around like an octopus. Picture it: Phone, pen, spatula, towel, detergent, vibrator Visine, mail, high heels, car keys, curling iron, etc. juggled in each tentacle. You get the picture. (C'mon, some things you have to make time for.) Anyway I've been neglecting my blog. I miss it. I miss you guys, too. The ones who care to check me out and/or leave your feedback. It means a lot to me. You have no idea. But my time is stretched to capacity and I have limited access to the computer lately. It's killing me softly.

Since I don't have much time but I do have all intentions of blogging again soon, I figured I share with you some of the upcoming posts I was kicking around in my head. In no particular order here are some of the topics you'll catch my thoughts on in the not-too-distant future.

I Miss (Cokehead) Mary J.

Who I'd Bed if I had a Time Machine

Skyzoo is the Truth. Have a Listen.

An interpretation of my dream that involved chasing and impalement in a gazebo.

Rules, Schmules. I did it my way and it worked. (How I got over)

10 Things about the movie Pulp Fiction to apply to everyday life.

Anyway, I really hope you come back soon. I mean, I really hope I do, too. But the candle has to be burned at both ends right now. In the meantime, check the archives, Buggies. Love you all.

10 Items or Less

I can't be the only one who's guilty of it. You run to the grocery store for a few things. You're convinced you don't even need a basket. Before you know it, you've stashed more than a few things in a cart abandoned by one of the aisles. Now it's time to pay. You hop on the Express line. The sign above clearly reads: 10 Items or Less. So what if you have...I dunno...twelvish or so things on the conveyor belt? If worse comes to worst- you can put back two of those yogurts, right? Wrong.

Not if you're on the line in the movie 10 Items or Less and Scarlett is the one ringing you up. The woman does not play. I first caught this film last year on a whim on Cable. It stars Morgan Freeman and Paz Vega and it's a wonderful film about people, life and the things that we can and can't do without. This is one of those flicks that makes you step back and reevaluate what counts and what shouldn't. One of my faves, for sure. Plus, it stars Mr. Freeman...who bears an uncanny resemblence to my father, who I adore. If I ever meet that man, I'll probably call him Dad. Anyway, rent it. It's worth it. Rock on.
