this post is missing music

One of the great things about running is the meditative state that is so accessible so quickly. 10 minutes in, and I can start to observe things from a distance; the rest of my day, phone calls that need to get done, my novel, etc...so much can get accomplished during that time every morning.

I should say, so much could get accomplished if I wasn't always ass-deep in gadgetry on runs. I have an irrational fear of being stuck an hour away from home/car/campsite with no tunes, or other aural diversions. So I usually go out with TWO devices. My trusty ipod in it's trusty sport skin is clipped on at the waist, and right next to it sits an am/fm radio as back-up, or for any NPR or sports content I might need. Overkill? Definitely. And that's not including the heart rate monitor that rounds out the geekfest....

Not a big shuffle fan. Fuck, I'm running around with hundreds of my favorite records, there's always an oldie, or a recent add to get listened to. This morning though, I thought I'd see where the randomizer muse led me.

and it led me straight to this man.

Andre Nickatina. What a freak. What a genius...

Someone for god's sake help me upload an mp3! Frick! Stef! Muzz!

well shoot...the record I have is called Cocaine Raps, Vol. II......the thing that makes this so cool is that there does not appear to be a Cocaine Raps, Vol. I.

Now, I don't listen to very much hip hop these days, but there was a time when I kept pretty abreast of things. A.N. reminds me very much of Del Tha Funky Homo Sapien, except maybe meaner...Lots of slightly of-kilter orchestral samples and p-funk bass lines...and he rhymes like you would expect the crazy guy roasting chestnuts over a garbage can fire to.

Seriously....I need to know how to put music on here.....I refuse to finish this without embedding a song in this bitch!

oh man. i need to brush up on my web skillz, yo. someone needs to invent the youtube of music... ooh, i should patent that... or maybe i shouldn't, i don't want metallica sueing me because they apparently don't have enough money yet...

but the short answer is, you need some place to host the file... like a website... and then you can link an mp3 from there. i don't know about embedding an mp3, though. too complex for me...
