Twelve Themes of Two Thousand Twelve: Technology (3/12)

I am not much of a geek, nor am I a technophobe; merely an observer of emerging concepts. This year we were introduced to many things that will positively change our way and understanding of life.

Twelve Themes of Two Thousand Twelve: People (2/12)

The feats and deeds of these notable figures inspired and entertained me throughout the past year. I take away a lot of wisdom and peace-of-mind when I read about the following 12 peoples' exploits.

Twelve Themes of Two Thousand Twelve: WORD (1/12)

Every year certain words become constituents of vernacular consciousness, further diluting our ability to communicate. Maybe some of the following words should be used more often, but most of them should be purged from common usage. Instead, diversify your speech patterns; make use of the internet to enrich the descriptiveness of your life.

†╫®§Ð¥ЋɌɰÐШⁿ 003b: After Tomorrow

Daze go by

...and when the collected perception of humanity realizes the weekend is finally here... we should relax a bit before we dance with Peril again. View these music videos not just for the stellar tunes, but the accompanying short films. Offered here are chill and sonic dramata, perfect for warm drinks under a comfy blanket. Maybe you are partied out; watch NONONO. The smooth pitch of Phlo Finister and Jessie Ware compliment the context-laden bravura of Damien Jurado and Dirty Projectors. Then feast upon the majesty that is Toro Y Moi, ending with one of my favorite bands of the year: Shadows On Stars.

Get up, get down

Pick up your feet. Quicken the pace. The weekend won't get here until you make a move. If you are on a mechanized vehicle, loosen your neck because your head will very likely bob to the modest bass produced by Carnage on KYLE's track. Should you be the driver, try not to focus on the visual aspects in these videos, as they are rather entertaining. Instead, drum on the wheel or dashboard or headrest of the chair in front of you. Match the beat of Kid Cudi's "King Wizard" joint as you roll along. I suggest watching "She Sleeps" on a bus or train ride. If you are walking down the paved roads to your destination, snap your fingers to the sultry rhythm of Peace. And then, as you prepare for an End Of The World party, jam to Disclosure remixing Artful Dodger and the one and only Major Lazer. Go out with a bang!
