seven percent battery post

So posting faster than the dollar’s decline. Basically soaking in small town America’s slow pace now, experiencing reverse culture shock for the first time; California’s metropolises really provided a soft landing. Now I’m seeing lots of:

a) obese people

b) parking lots

c) roads + gas stations + big cars

And though not as exorbitant as California, high prices. I miss that dollar-fifty dinner of Muslim noodles with a huge plate of dumplings, all coated in chili sauce.

So how to cope? Music

Two artists today. The first I caught at Amoeba Records in Hollywood, King Khan & His Shrines absolutely tore through a [short] set, with the King donning a Darth Vader-ish mask, wandering through the aisles at the end. Think White Stripes with an Indian frontman quite serious about his King shtick and a full backing band plus a functional cheerleader.

King Khan & His Shrines – Welfare Bread

King Khan & His Shrines – I See Lights

King Khan & His Shrines – I Wanna Be A Girl

Plus some hip hop for all the heads. I rocked Beauty and the Beat nonstop when it dropped in 2005, but I never heard Edan’s first EP Primative Plus until yesterday. Still fresh.

Edan – Key-Bored

Edan – Primitive Plus

Edan – Run That Shit
