Move For Me

Another lazy post I know, but I've heard this song "Move For Me" by Kaskade & deadmau5 a few times on the radio and I can't stop listening to it. The lyrics are simple, but the beat is so addicting. A random fact about me: my favourite techno group when I was twelve was 2 Unlimited. I owned all of their two albums...ha ha ha. I also really liked Zhane. I think my current favourite DJs are DJ Tiesto and Amplive.

The Bachelor

Yes, I'm a sucker for watching this season's The Bachelor. After watching last season's The Bachelorette and seeing Jason Mesnick get shot down by DeAnna Pappas, I was interested to see what kind of ladies were gonna show up for Jason this season. I heard DeAnna dumped Jesse Csincsak, the winner last season, about a few months after she accepted his proposal. Jesse was a pretty rad dude and it's too bad DeAnna left him. I sent a friend request to Jesse and he added me on Facebook. Cool eh? I hope he becomes the next bachelor. I think the show would be a lot of fun to watch with him in it.

This season with Jason has been pretty good so far. Being a bachelor myself, I enjoy watching the ladies getting catty with each other and competing for his attention. It'll be interesting to see how these relationships form and what ladies generally want in a man. Also the ladies of course look hot. One girl that immediately caught my attention is Jillian from my hometown, Vancouver, and not because of where she is from. From what I've seen so far, she seems really down-to-earth, funny, outgoing, confident, and positive and also very attractive. She runs her own interior design company and seems to be at a point in her life to settle down with a man. She's definitely the type of girl I would love to date.

Check out a couple clips of Jillian below and you'll see what I mean. Her "hot dog theory" is hilarious. You can catch The Bachelor on Monday nights at 8 on CityTV.

Stuff White People Like

After a busy Friday morning delivering three days worth of mail after Christmas and New Year's, the afternoon has slowed down somewhat. As I surfed the net, I remembered a conversation I had with some of my friends at a birthday party about a book called "Stuff White People Like." I googled it and found a blog from where the book came about. I have been reading a number of entries and I'm learning how white I am. One entry was so true of me.

This one comes from #116 - Black Music that Black People Don't Listen to Anymore.

Historically speaking, the music that white people have kept on life support for the longest period of time is Jazz. Thanks largely to public radio, bookstores, and coffee shops, Jazz has carved out a niche in white culture that is not yet ready to be replaced by Indie Rock. But the biggest role that Jazz plays in white culture is in the white fantasy of leisure. All white people believe that they prefer listening to jazz over watching television. This is not true.

If you are good at concealing laughter and contempt, you should ask a white person about “Real Hip Hop.” They will quickly tell you about how they don’t listen to “Commercial Hip Hop” (aka music that black people actually enjoy), and that they much prefer “Classic Hip Hop.”

“I don’t listen to that commercial stuff. I’m more into the Real Hip Hop, you know? KRS One, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, De La Soul, Wu Tang, you know, The Old School.”

I realized that in all the underground hip hop shows I've gone to in the past, more than 80% who attended were white people. I thought this was funny because I wondered in the past why there were so few black people at those shows.
