Daniel Merriweather - Love & War [MUSIC]

Th Australian crooner, Daniel Merriweather, has quickly become a favourite of mine. I rifled through youtube for a sampling of his catalogue after watching The Ugly Truth and picked out his song; "Chainsaw" that was featured in the film. The debut album is a solid effort, and his sound is very remiscent to some of the greats...Stevie, Prince, D'Angelo...even some Jamiroquai.

Love & War is available now on iTunes.

Cold Souls [MOVIES]

I can honestly say that I was not impressed with Paul Giamatti's acting chops until I watched, and thoroughly enjoyed the man kill it in the HBO mini series John Adams. That was simply brilliant acting. I had never taken him seriously before that...and with really only remembering him in films like Dr. Dolittle and Big Momma's House, it's easy to see how. Anyway, we've come a long way since then, and my sense of humour has darkened greatly. With that Cold Souls has proven to be an absolute gem of a film. Being John Malkovich x Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind x a brand of witty dialogue that meshes it all together to create a film worth my opinion. Check it out on iTunes.

2011 Land Rover LRX [CARS]

It was like love at first sight...I've nicknamed this the "Baby-Rover". I have sliden it into a close 2nd (#1 is the Lexus GS) as my favourite vehicle -- though technically this will not hit dealerships until the 3rd quarter of 2011. The concept turned reality is a 2 door SUV rumoured to be a presented as a hybrid equiped with a 3.0 diesel V6 engine and an electric motor turning out up to 25kW. I'm not mad that...I'll take mine with cream on the inside, and clean on the outside.

Ian Kamau - Love it Here [VIDEO]

Presenting: Ian Kamau...he killed this shit! This is big homie from the interlude on K-Os's EXIT album...and others...that's where I first heard of them though...and it stuck.

The last line was:
" on our side they can barely stand"

"Love it Here" is off the newly released mixtape Love & Other Struggles Vol. 3. The video is dope...fat shouts to my homie Shash who put it together. Timing is great...imagery is vivid...the story is classic. I didn't know Ian actually rapped...he's ill. Sounds like a well spoken RZA...dope.

"painting pictures of the pain of my great city / cause it's a beautiful struggle but it ain't pretty"

Check Ian out on Twitter, Facebook, and download the mixtape HERE.
