CLSotW: episode 2

Hey again everyone. Welcome back to Cat Lover Song of the Week (CLSotW). I know y'all have been highly anticipating the second installment, so I'm sorry for the delay.

This weeks song is titled "Wax and Wire" by Loch Lomond. It is a new song from a new band that comes to us directly from the home of the domesticated cat. The Highlands of Scotland.

The video associated with this weeks song is not very exciting/cat related, so here is a fun fact: the Scottish were the first to realize the true potential of cats as not only a friend and potential ally to the human race, but as a help meet as well (e.g. vermin control, Schrodinger's cat, Kitten Mittens, etc.). I also found this video to satisfy your feline needs.

With that said, don't eat cats and stay classy.

Hey everyone, welcome to the first weekly presentation of the highly anticipated 'Cat Lover Song of the Week' (or for lovers of acronyms CLSotW).

During this weekly presentation I intend on sharing music for cats, about cats, by cats, or with cats. Pretty much anything that the Thundercats would approve of.

Now, don't be alarmed if you're not a cat lover, you are still welcome here and this is music that even the average human should enjoy as well.

This week's song is titled "Outside" by the Trashcan Sinatras.

I don't know why, but it won't let me embed it, so just click on the link (I think embedding is disabled for copyright protection on all the sweet pictures of cats. The slide show is amazing!)

Seriously tho, at least listen to the song, it is an amazing instrumental song and don't expect any lyrics cause there are none.

Until next week, or the next time I am in a really weird mood, stay classy friends.

Sammy Davis Jr. Jr.

Speaking of Sammy Davis Jr. I think everyone needs to see "Everything is Illuminated." It is in my top 5 favorite movies of all time.

Here is a "very premium" clip from the movie. Enjoy.

The Blessed Melting Pot

This may not be new to some of you, but I recently came across this thing called Nerdcore Hip-Hop. Some people call it racist. Others call it stupid. I call it America.

Think about it.

America is all about diversity. It's even called the "great melting pot." So what is greater evidence of this "melting pot" of diversity, than an extremely white man dropping uniquely nerdy/technical lyrics to a sick beat? Personally, I can't think of anything that's better evidence of "the melting pot" in America since Sammy Davis Jr. became a Jew.

Seriously tho, the diversity of America is one of the things that make it a great place to live. I think that the fact that so many different types of peoples and cultures live "under one roof" gives us a distinct advantage in the world. America isn't perfect, but there sure are a lot of sweet ideas and people that come out of America and I believe it is a direct result of the diversity that defines our nation.

With that said, check yourself out some Nerdcore Hip-Hop in the form of MC Frontalot.
