December 2, 2016A shorter than average list, sadly I didn't hear much new music in Malaysia. 4 stars in red, check out the video for Carment
- Carmen (Stromae) Oh man this video is brilliant! I was just enjoying the song.
- Play It Right (Sylvan Esso) I dig the intensity of the dancing.
- Birds (Thomas Sanders & Dodie Clark) Cute little duet.
- Get Ugly (Jason Derulo) I watched "Absolutely Fabulous the Movie" on the plane back from Malaysia... it opens with this song. Fun video here.
- The Jeffersons Theme Song (Janet Dubois) Ripped this off of youtube... man is it fun to sing along with. I think I'd like to try to arrange it for band.
- Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Opening theme (Fox) Only 20 seconds, wish it was longer.
- Black Beatles (feat. Gucci Mane) (Rae Sremmurd) The background for the mannequin challenge.
- Black Hole Sun (Ramin Djawadi) Player piano cover from Westworld.
- Cariñito (Los Hijos del Sol) School of Honk plays this song.
- Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones) There was a great orchestral cover of this in Westworld, but I decided I like the original. Another candidate to do in band.
- Smokin & Drinkin (Danny Brown) Fun hiphop, infectious chorus.
- We Shall Not Be Moved (Mavis Staples) Old protest song.
- How Can You Mend a Broken Heart (Al Green) I think I actually heard of this in in the Sex in the City movie... his "lalalalalalalalala" is crazily sensual.
- Rise Up (feat. Tom Morello) (Cypress Hill) Kind of goofy 90s hiphop but I like the Donkey Kong reference.
"The phoney electoral college made a laughing stock out of our nation. The loser one!"
--Donald Trump, on Twitter in 2012 when he wrongly thought Obama lost the popular vote. Presumably he meant "won".
Very mixed feelings about Trump scotch taping his tie.

Ugh, vague feeling of remembering "Oh I should put this down someplace where I'll remember it" followed by less vague feeling of being pretty sure I didn't.
The 52 Things I learned in 2016. Whoa.
