About My Pick: Booti Call by Blackstreet
I wasn’t too sure of what to pick for this exchange. All the cool George tracks were chosen (not like I know of many). I picked this track because I think George might have an appreciation for throwback tracks to this time period. In addition, the track samples George Clinton’s Atomic Dog, so that’s almost George-y, right? This song is pretty dope in my book, one of my favorite Blackstreet tracks. 

How Twitter Ruined My Birthday

Although it wasn’t quietly kept on my Twitter stream, yesterday was my birthday. I just wanted to take the time to thank all my followers on Twitter that sent me Happy Birthday tweets. Lately I have been pretty amazed at how your own personal Twitter families are at times an instant cheerleading section. On graduation day I had a similar effect. Anyway, below is a screenshot of all the tweets I caught (click to view more detail). Bare in mind Twitter broke down about 8 times yesterday and it has been eating tweets, so if you don’t see yourself in the crowd, blame Twitter!
