In Like a Lion...

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Leap day is tomorrow and after that we're officially starting the third month of 2012.

I FINALLY bought myself a  planner at good ole' Barnes & Nobles and lucky for me this one starts in March and runs until next year August! ( so thoughtful )

I know I haven't been posting much lately and I apologize, after my birthday it's been CRAZY hectic. 

BUT I've run into a little bit of time so I want to share with you some updates! 

LIFE:
I might have disappeared from blogger, but I've been snapping away photos on INSTAGRAM - say what you want @_Atomsk ("You're a Hipster!") but I'm digging being able to share photos with others on a platform strictly for it unlike TUMBLR. 
Check me out on there - TENOLI is the username, as predictable. 

I'm currently reading Haruki Murakami's "Underground" which houses several interviews concerning the Tokyo Gas Attack of 1995 and explores the Japanese Psyche. Definitely interesting but it can be a bit of a scary read while riding the train to work - I keep thinking "What if this happened in NYC?"

I'm starting BOXING in April!~ Updates on that coming soon :]

MUSIC:
When am I not falling in love with new music? It looks like I've fallen into a soul phase that's been setting in since November of last year -- Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady" set it off. 

Right now I'm listening to artists like Emily King, Gary Clark Jr., Jesse Boykins III, and Luke James - just to name a few of the new peoples. 

Check them out: 



Ciao mi gente!~

MUSIC: Gary Clark Jr. "Please Come Home"

Monday, February 20, 2012

First time I heard him play and sing, I thought to myself "Are you sure this isn't The Black Keys?" but when I heard the rest of his music, I was sure this was one talented motherf-er that deserves to be compared but own his own identity.

Gary Clark Jr. is going to do big things with that talent of his no doubt - shoot, I even bought his EP off iTunes. Too bad that his LP (?) Gary Clark Jr. is not available for sale or legal download (ahem).

If you don't dig this slower jam too much, check out "Bright Lights" or even "Things Are Changing" (I prefer the live version of the latter).

Hope you all enjoy and shoutout to @_Atomsk that actually put me onto this.

MUSIC: Chinese Man "Miss Chang"

French Trip Hop?

Searching for music this morning before work and I stumbled upon this group. I'm loving this joint that's quite reminiscent of some of Rekstizzy's beats in his album Fake It Till You Naked.

Enjoy the freshness :]  - Oh and Happy Day of Love and Friendship. (Make sure you let someone you really love know you care)

MUSIC: Relly's 5th Win On Freestyle Friday

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Week after week I've watched Relly roast his challengers on Freestyle Friday and a few weeks ago, he got his 5th win putting him in the March Finals!




Check out the clip of his winning verse AND his shoutout to YOURS TRULY - "Shanis from BET"

Nothing but love for my Relly Jelly - Haha!

TV: Superbowl // M&Ms Ms. Brown Commercial Spot

Thursday, February 2, 2012

(via NYTimes.com // source )
Who's excited about this year's Superbowl? Oh I'm so ready for this game and these crazy advertisements. All these AdWeek images are getting me pumped up, especially all the teasing around M&M's newest addition, about damn time right? Ms. Brown is looking mighty Ms. Independent-ish and I love it. (Sorry Ms. Green, we've got options now).

Most overheard comment about Ms. Brown's debut: 
"All I'm saying, she BETTER not have a Black voice!"

Enjoy the teaser below.
