EARWORM: Skrillex and Diplo, Feat. (WHO?!?!) BIEBER(?!!?) – Where Are U Now?

I have to admit, I must have been hiding under a rock because this was the first I have heard the song playing while I biking along Yonge St. during Open Streets Toronto this past weekend. The song was out almost all summer! I caught myself bobbing my head to it.

EARWORM: Calvin Harris + Disciples – How Deep Is Your Love

Calvin Harris first debuted in 2007 with an album called “I Created Disco” and his third solo album, “18 Months” got him international cred. To date, Calvin has 4 albums.

This single collaboration with the London dance trio, Disciples, got my head nodding in the train on the way to work. The video was released on August 6, 2015.

So great to hear fresh stuff coming from across the pond!

It goes without saying that the Labour Day weekend is, unofficially, the last days of summer.  Without further ado, here’s my list of things happening around town.  Items 2, 3 and 4 you need to have tickets (although read up on #4 – there are ways to see it for “free”), but otherwise these events are free.  Have a great weekend!

League of Legends

Some days after work, my brother and I get a chance to unwind by playing League of Legends.  This game was introduced to us by my son a few years ago (I’m guessing around 2011).  To those who don’t know this game,

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #12 “Good Life” by Kanye West feat. T-Pain

Ah, ‘Ye’s second appearance on this list. I remember my ‘cousin’ Ira always saying “summertime Chi” whenever he could, and I never fully understood where he was getting that until I heard this autotuned monstrosity.

I’m not saying I don’t like this song by calling it a monstrosity. In fact, I mean that in the most complimentary way possible, if any. Seriously. T-Pain’s autotuned voice just makes the song for me.

The video makes the song that much better. I don’t know if you know, but I do want to go to an art school to pursue graphic design and illustration, and the graphics in the video just blew my mind. The kind of stuff done in it is intense, man. Also, I’ve really been trying to up my wardrobe, clothing and fashion design/style has become a rather intriguing area for me lately. Kanye is usually seen wearing outrageous outfits, but his clothes in the video are so clean and subtle. I’m a fan of subtle.
