Mississippi

Posted January 10th, 2012. Filed under Personal

I’m in Gulfport, Mississippi. It’s been quite an experience thus far.

Gulfport is a wasteland. You’ll remember, Gulfport was particularly hard hit by Hurricane Katrina - probably more so than New Orleans. You can definitely see and feel it. It just feels like half the city is missing. There are vacant lots and empty buildings everywhere. I mean, you can see the steady rebuilding, but you can also see the signs of destruction. What’s really striking is how menacing the Gulf of Mexico looks and feels up close. There was a solid rain storm today, and the gulf was churning away, winds blowing, humidity in the air. I don’t think I could live here, rebuilding my life and my city with that Gulf there looking over my shoulder, threatening to tear it all down again in the blink of an eye. Gulfport is right up against the Gulf. The beach can’t be anymore than 50 yards or so wide. Then there’s a highway. Then there’s the city. Businesses and houses and everything. Craziness.

This Gotye track is all over the place it seems.

I definitely enjoy the original, but this Bibio remix is hot.

Electric Guest

Everything Danger Mouse turns to gold.  Gorillaz.  The Black Keys.  Broken Bells.  That Dark Night of the Soul album.  Last year’s epic Rome album.  All gold.

Go ahead and guess who claims production credit for Electric Guest.

This track “Troubleman” is 9 minutes of greatness.  Take a listen.
