the music mavens

(via Second Edition–Vin Diesel vs. Arthur Russell by gary@garylucas.com)

Fragments of an aborted recording session at Battery Sound NYC in 1986 which brought together fledgling rapper Mark Sinclair–today better known as the actor Vin Diesel–and avant composer/dance music maven Arthur Russell in a project midwifed by Gary Lucas, who discovered Mark Sinclair rapping and break-dancing on the streets of the West Village, and greenlighted by Geoff Travis of Rough Trade Records and Barry Feldman of Upside/Logarhythm records.

Ok, confession time:

I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a tag more. Seriously. I spent SO much time filling these out, so the people I tag are serious music mavens or book wizzards, and I’ll sit here all day with pen and paper in hand, waiting to add new amazing songs to my collection! (Also, sorry for going classic with my answers,it’s hard for me to find ONE BAND whose most songs I know and like). Ok, here goes:

@koalamuffins (counting on you) @shaelinwrites (although you might not have the time, finals and all, in which case forget about it, BUT you might need a fun break so yay) @bassguitarwitch (miss you duuude) @nerdishfeels @glorious74 @eggletine @elliewants2write @cassyunicorn @bymeganwithmeraki (meraki sisterrrr) @aelinqueenofshadows (lyyy)

Sorry if you’ve done this before, just tag me on your answers :) xx

CONFETTI INTENSIFIES

((A year ago, a girl stumbled across a long-dead rp blog that she had. Oh dear, what can I do with this? she thought.

After bringing it up with her friend, he convinced this girl to start an independent OC blog. After much confusion and key smashing, she wrote what she thought was a passable bio, hunted down a blog theme she liked, and made a single post stating the blog’s immediate change to an independent LoL RP OC. 

So as stated last night, one year ago today I made that post officially opening my blog. I find it really amusing that my second post was then a giveaway for said friend

So…it’s been a year. Hooray?
