*main riff*

This is quite an interesting video. I've seen people who have filled in the lyrics before, but I've never seen someone actually try to make conversation.  This kid does a pretty good job of talking you through this fuzzed out prog gem, complete with Nirvana shout out and Jonas Brothers beef. In all fairness it's a 7 minute epic with an instrumental interlude in the middle so there's a lot of dead air.

Today is the day that the world's best basketball player chooses his next home. I'm hoping for a New York revival, but the chances are looking slim. The real question is, does LeBron James leave Cleveland (and it's eternal losing ways) for a new market, and if so which generation of young kids get to idolize him and which get to hate him. Also will Clevelanders burn their own city down if King James jumps ship. My bet is yes. Better look out.

Heat Wave

Two record breaking days in a row here in the city. Two consecutive triple-digit days and maybe more on the way. We are officially in the middle of a Heat Wave.

From Wikipedia:
North American area code 213 is a California telephone area code which was one of California's original three area codes created in October 1947. It has historically been associated with Southern California and Los Angeles.
For all intensive purposes, it could be better associated with three of the Best of the West Coast Rappers, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg (they are related, I'm not kidding) and Warren G.
