***So I have my top lists compiled, I just haven’t been able to fully write it out yet. And since I will be in New York for New Year’s, my top lists will not be out until I get back. Super sorry! I am super excited for y’all to read it still! And within my mixtapes which I DID finish (phewf) are a lot of my favorites of the year and of the decade! Have a great new years and enjoy the mixtapes! Stay tuned for my top lists within two weeks!***
Alright y’all. This mixtape is pretty sick. Not gonna lie. In it, lies some favorite tracks of mine throughout the decade as well as constantly looped tracks of this year! Unforgettable club hits, street bangers, and undeground smashes! This is a mixtape meant for pre-party, pre-drinking, and pre-PAAAAAAAAAAAAIN! I hope your home/car/headphones has a lot of BASS (how low can you go)!
You will need it.
GET READY TO DANCE BITCHEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!
Playlist after the jump!
I know this is a bit late. But been super busy lately buuut more updates are on the way! Anyways, I saw This Is It on the opening day in a full and enthusiastic theater. I left the theater with my flatmate in complete awe and silence. This movie was exactly what I was hoping it’d be: a sole focus on the tour with no autobiographical been there done that documentary preamble these movies tend to be full of. Most importantly, it gave the world a glimpse of Michael without all the rumors and accusations that led many fans astray. This Is It is evidence of Michael’s true crown to pop, his still unfaltering artistic genius when it comes to art, music, and performance. Most of all, the film is evidence of Michael’s character, his relentless work ethic, his positive energy, and his capacities as a human being.
I looooooooooooved this movie! It was so full of energy! Music throughout! Great dance numbers! Though you could tell that Michael wasn’t as robust as he used to be…and that could possibly have been reversed had it actually be live…but one thing was for sure: his voice is still soooooooooo freakin’ amazing. Even after all these years, he delivers perfectly on all the songs in the movie. I teared up twice (surprise surprise). Once, for “Human Nature”. Simply, it is one of my favorite songs and I think lyrically, composition wise, and overall, it is the best song off of Thriller. When he squeezed his eyes in as he pelted out the high pitch cry “ooooo whyyyyyyyyyyy”…I couldn’t believe it. Twice, for the ending “Man in the Mirror”. I think this is a staple ending to all things MJ…Stevie Wonder did it…MTV did it…er and a bunch of others..I’m sure.
The stage setup! Amazing! The graphics! Especially for “They Don’t Care About Us”! All those soldiers in the background, the choreography for this number was amazing. As well as “Thriller”. My only disappointment was that there were no songs from Off The Wall. Albeit the film was about two hours and was trying to appeal to the mainstream MJ fans or non-fans, I just wish I heard some stuff like “Girlfriend”, “Off the Wall”, or “Get On the Floor”. Off the Wall is TOTALLY MJ’S BEST ALBUM!
I am totally seeing this movie again. Tomorrow. I hope. What are your thoughts?
Anyways, here are two of my top 10 faves from MJ! Enjoy!
Ok guys. Long time since my last mixtape. I made TWO. One for ATM, and one for the other amazing blog I contribute to, Ca Va Cool. The one below, is a longer version and IMO a bit better because it has some old school feel to it. The one at CVC is a shorter version, it has pretty much the same songs but less old school groove. Both are GREAT! It just depends how much longer you want your dance party to go on for.
Download ATM’s “Leave Your 9-5 Up On The Shelf” Mixtape
Go to CVC to download CVC’s “Leave Your 9-5 Up On The Shelf” Mixtape
(give it possibly up to a week before it shows)
The playlist after the jump! GO GO GO!
Yup. Still dealing with it. Yup. Still don’t know how to. But some dude recorded the entire memorial that happened today, and that’s pretty great. Watch it all after the jump!

I CAN’T WAIT ‘TIL SEPTEMBER 1ST!!! Is anyone else going!?
Sexual harassment. Panda! That was a South Park reference. Tee hee. This photo is part of a Zoo series for one of my favorite photography websites, The Big Picture. Anyways, I have finally finished the mixtape I have been meaning to get out with all the stuff I have been obsessed with for the past three hectic months. Some of the artists I have already reviewed, some of them I will end up doing a more in depth review on AtM, and some I am not! This will also be posted on Ca Va Cool, another fantastic music blog I contribute to, but I figured I’d give you guys a sneak peek. This mixtape is almost a week old now, but it’s all be zipped up so I couldn’t make the changes I would have by now. Oh well, it still rocks! Go after the jump to see my to-be-posted post for CVC!
Ok so I’ve been looping my Michael Jackson discography lately this week. Fantastic paper writing music I tell ya. One of my favorite MJ songs is “Liberian Girl”. In case you don’t recognize the song name, I’m sure you’d recognize the loop in this song which has been sampled countless times up ’til now.
And I think the video is really rad. How many celebrities can you count?
MY DREAMS ARE REALISED
I GOTTA GO TO CLASS BUT THE PRESS CONFERENCE PRETTY MUCH REVEALED THAT MICHAEL JACKSON WILL BE DOING 10 SHOWS!! FINAL SHOWS!!!
