Reviews:

1. I was pleasantly surprised both by this EP and by the fact that I’ve had it on my iPod for so long and only just listened to it. I get the impression he’s one of those artists who performs best when focused, when only recording a few songs. And yes, I’m aware I called him an artist. Weird, right? I guess that dude from Community’s a rapper now.

2. I was pretty disappointed with this one overall, though “Can You Hear Me Knockin'” and “Bitch” are incredible. I love those songs now and you can never take that from me.

Comment:

I’ve been trying to do this new thing where I’ll take care of myself and it seems to be relatively detrimental for certain aspects of my life like my blog or my wallet. I usually start a t.w.i.m. draft around 11PM on Sunday because the whole point of t.w.i.m. is to bring you the music I listened to during the week and I always listen to music while writing. But it’s that race against the clock that always gets the better of me because it only rarely takes an hour and I even more rarely start on time. So the plan this week was to type up all the albums and songs and then type the reviews and comment on Monday morning, but I’ve also started going to the gym in the mornings so I have less time to drink coffee and write or watch Hulu. Then the plan was, maybe if I outpaced work again, to write it there. Or after the nap I would have to take from staying up late with the first draft of t.w.i.m. And then I forgot, so here we are three days late.

Writing while exhausted is sometimes next to impossible, so I’m going to keep working on this. My hope is to find a way to get it done on time, still have a social life and still not show up to work with bags under my eyes. I’m pretty sure my liver can only take so much coffee and the amount I’m drinking these days is probably pushing the limit. No big deal, though, I’m sure I, like you pining away for another t.w.i.m., can be patient. Which is to say, thanks for being patient, sorry I was late. My my brought me a note: see above.
