Purity Ring – Obedear

Before I could even post this jam, it moved up the HYPEM charts from 17 to NO.1 in less than 6 hours. The first thing I thought of when I heard the beat was when is Lil Wayne going to come on with the chorus “Like a lollipop! “Thankfully, he didn’t………. but I’m sure someone will in tomorrows remix. Could this b the sign that music is shifting from a balance of Indie vocals over some rap/hip hop beats???
Lets hope so. OBEDEAR’S New EP is about to release on JUNE 24. They’ll be touring a bit this summer too… mostly festival style… you know u want 2.

The Color Run. Really?

I get the idea of Tough Mudder, it looks fun

and even more so the Nike+ Human Race in 2008

How about “Run With the Cops Not From Them” on Bell Isle in Detroit or even a little Bay to Breakers in San Francisco. (Sadly it was canceled this year because it was getting a little too out of control) Okay, Bay to Breakers is mostly just a party, there are people that do run it in the morning though.

But really, the Color Run?

Honestly, who want’s to run and inhale colored chalk into their mouths? Non toxic or not, this is a major fail. The only thing colored chalk should be used for is this…

Sorry Lia, let me know how it goes and maybe I’ll run it next year! Love ya!
