My internet at the apartment sucks today. Actually it sucks everyday. It’s a free 30-day trial but still. So now I’m tapping this out at McDonald’s round the corner. Usually when I’m hurting for internet I go to Starbucks, but today it was all full with those immovable goateed bros sitting across from their messenger bags looking real serious. Actually that was the case yesterday too. So yeah I’m at McDonalds. Oh well, they’ve got this new Mc-Cafe vibe working so its cozy. Plus Wifi is much faster when you’re the only one with a laptop. And dudes at mickey D’s keep it real. Especially this Willem Dafoe-looking Army vet eyeing me down like I’m gonna steal his nuggets. Easy, dude. Just streaming my youtube.
Damn its August 8th already! Summertime seems to be slipping away faster than ever so I wanted to share some good seasonal sounds before its too late. The Midnight Eez are a mystery hip hop duo (from the Bx maybe?) who popped out a tape of instrumentals sometime around 95 or 96 before fading into (or remaining in?) obscurity. This stuff is very smooth, brings to mind Flying Lotus but with more warmth and retro-fuzziness. The anonymity of it all adds to the intrigue. It’s a perfect play for open windows on these last weeks of warm summer nights.
I’m gonna grab a mcChicken and bounce. Link to the full tape is below.
