The last couple of weekends I have been dog-sitting for a neighbor's dog, but this is no ordinary dog, this is Wiggles. Actually we just call her Wiggles because, well you will see below. 

She's an adorably... um, jovial pup who has a special talent in the rear department. She is one of the few dogs who gets along with my rambunctious canine-companion. Every time we take care of her it makes me think of this song.

Song #223: 2 In a Room - Wiggle It

Taking Woodstock

Tonight I've been enjoying the recent film Taking Woodstock. It's a nice story, and not a bad debut for the hilarious Demetri Martin. It's a little fantastical but really a bunch of fun and has a great soundtrack. Input from Canned Heat, Arlo Guthrie, Janis Joplin, The Doors, Joan Baez and Richie Havens really puts it over the top. In the middle, Demetri's character has a crazy acid trip in a van with these two hippies to this far-out psych track by a group called Ultimate Spinach. As if there is any other kind of spinach...

Biggie Flava

Last Tuesday, 92YTribeca's groundbreaking Rap-Lecture Series, Noisemakers featured none other than Puff Daddy, or Diddy as he's called these days. I went a little skeptical of Puffy's rap skills but within a moment I realized I was in the presence of one of the great entrepreneurs of my time. His drive and creativity turned Hip Hop into the empire it is today.

Song #217: Craig Mack, Biggie, Rampage, LL Cool J & Busta Rhymes - Flava In Ya Ear Remix
