We’ve been having some strange weather as of late – April Showers bringing more May showers, not flowers (shake of fists) and lots of wind; but there’s a saying that you have to put up with the rain to get the rainbow, and in LA – when we have less than 20 rainy days a year, we really need to learn to take what we can get 😉
The Return of Daft Punk
I was going to come up with some cheeseball headline or witticism to drop on everyone; but when it comes to Daft Punk, there’s been so many rumors and so much hoopla about their comeback that it’s best to simply cut to the chase! In addition to the release of their next album Random Access Memories and their first single ‘Get Lucky’ – they’ll also be interviewed by Pete Tong during this week’s BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix *mini tribal*
If that wasn’t enough, listen to this itty bitty Tong Teaser from the man himself. He had the opportunity to interview Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, better known as the men behind the masks and creative genius of Daft Punk, at Coachella a few weeks back and seems like he couldn’t wait to share it with his fans. So collectively, from us to you – thank you, Pete Tong!
And what the hell, here’s there last Essential Mix from ’97:
Dexter: The Final Cuts
It’s like there’s some form of entropy in the entertainment world right now – one great thing comes back and another great thing makes it’s exit. For anyone and everyone who spent the last few years Darkly Dreaming Dexter, this is going to be a hell of a bittersweet Summer. June 30th marks the kickoff of Season 8 – the final chapters. When we left off in the Season 7 Finale, Deb had put an end to LaGuerta but had only just begun to feel the moral ramifications of being in Dexter’s world; Dexter, on the other hand, still has loose ends to tie up with Hannah McKay…or does he? Either way, this is the season not to miss!
There are a select ways I choose to kill time and roam the interwebs while I’m on a break at work: there’s Reddit (or, for the visual types – Scrolldit), Twitter, Thought Catalog – and lately, Buzzfeed. They all consistently have thought provoking (or, conversely – thought impairing) articles, blasts, facts, anecdotes and downright hilarious messages to get me thinking, laughing and catapulting myself through my day with expert precision. And let’s face it, I’m a sucker for a good cat meme…so click through the picture to see a whole lot more First World Cat problems!
