“Neon Gumbo” in Reverse

Thanks to Google, I searched my way to the answer to “WTH is Janelle Monae singing in no. 8?!” You know, because she seems quite far from a Satanist. Still, “Neon Gumbo” from Archandroid is eerily beautiful and is reversed below. Love it. Happy listening!

Robin Thicke and Leading Ladies

Crowning the Compilation Queen

Ms. Jackson, Outkast

This blog is in dire need of updating! So…HELLO, AGAIN. It’s been a couple of months since I’ve checked up.  I’ve had some time to collect myself.  The recession has indeed had palpable affects on the American people.  Albeit an American by way of naturalization, I am a prime example of what the situation has forced many young adults to become: out-of-school, out-of-work, bored and broke consumers.  Smh.  The economic fiasco “hit young people especially hard,” according to USA Today.  The piece also included irritating statistics that showed how times were once oh-so-good to us youngin’s.

Only 47.6% of people ages 16 to 24 had jobs in August, the lowest level since the government began keeping track in 1948, according to the Labor Department.  By Comparison, 62.8% of that age group was employed in August 2000.

–USA Today, Sept. 7, 2010, “Driest spell yet for summer work”

That’s just pathetic!
