It was only a matter of time before the snow came.
Just a few weeks ago it was damn near 60 degrees and now I barely want to go outside. This morning, I woke up and looked out the window to see a world blanketed with snow. When I was younger, this would have been to perfect time to go outside and get into mischief. Maybe make a few bucks shoveling driveways, go sledding, snowball fights, throwing snowballs (actually, more like iceballs) at cars and whatever else. I’m sure my brethren from the Chi & Canada can relate to this.
Now, all I want to do is hang out around the house and look out the window every now and then. To watch the idiots drive crazy and make no one hits the whip. Like Gotty said before, this was a day when I wanted to hear some music and nothing else. So today I had ESPN on mute and played the instrumentals to 808s & Heartbreak. If winter were a movie, this could be the score. The sparse production perfectly captures the bareness and isolation winter can bring in the form of cabin fever. Whether you liked the album or not, check out the instrumentals and prepare for the audio blizzard that’s sure to start with MC’s hopping on these tracks. So far, my favorite one would have to be Mickey Factz’s “Thinking Out Loud.”
