This guy describes his music as Sunset House – and I’d have to agree (though I have no real idea what it means). Also, he should stick to original tracks like “Raindrops” below; his remixes seem a little forced.

Gryffin Remixes

Maroon-5-Animals-Gryffin-Remix

Just from browsing through this kid’s Soundcloud, I could see him grow up before my eyes; he started to figure out his sound about a year ago and has recently been able to apply it to more complementary songs. Look out for this kid at bigger festivals once he starts producing originals.

Listening to this first song felt like the first time I had Reese’s Puffs – fuck, this shit’s good! These are the kind of toons humans were created to listen to. I dare you to try to sit still.

Breaking Bad is Back

Breaking Bad - Poster

Tonight, one of the best shows on TV, Breaking Bad, continues towards its much anticipated conclusion. If you are not up to date with the show I would strongly recommend DVRing tonight’s episode, calling in sick tomorrow to catch up, and top off your work-free Monday with last night’s episode. That way on Tuesday when everyone’s (still) talking about it, you can be a relevant participant in the conversation. Don’t be that moron who walks up to the coffee machine and says, “Do you think Skyler will find out?” or “I’ll bet that Gale takes over the lab” (she does, and he’s dead; I have no pity for you if you’re not that far).

I’m re-watching episodes from prior seasons as I’m writing this, and appreciating some of the music in here. In honor of this series coming back, here is a sample of some of the songs that I’m hearing as I’m watching. However, for those of you who want more thorough sampling of tunes, check out this 8-tracks playlist.

Season 2 – Episode 9: 4 Days Out

That’s just great music for a time-lapse sequence right there.

Season 3 – Episode 3: Bit by a Dead Bee

Season 4 – Episode 13: Face Off

Season 5 – Episode 8: Gliding Over All

New Kid on the Block

Nope, not the boy band…

Bloggers

Mr. Pellas has asked me to team up with him to publish some hopefully interesting posts for this site of his. My name is Lee, I’m from Detroit (hence, I became an accountant), went to Lehigh, and now live in New York. Now that we’re all up to speed…

 

Mumford and Sons recently released a video to the track “Hopeless Wanderer” from their album “Babel”. This song was never one of my favorites. Through most of the song it just seems like they’re repeating the same line over and over again. Then one night, probably after performing on SNL, they pulled a power move and gathered some funny dudes for one of the more subtly entertaining music videos in a while. Ed Helms’ face at 4:39 mark. ‘Nuff said.

Douchebag (Prod. by David Yassky) by Skizzy Mars

This young rapper coming out of West Side Manhattan dropped the jam of the year so far in my opinion.

Starting Strong

Wisdumb For Life is meant to be a stream of my subjective internet experience. So, in a few years I might be able to look back and see what views, pursuits, and interests I had. Facebook and Twitter provide a type of medium conducive to sharing private information with others by posting your personal interests, photos and the like. But sharing public material, like songs, YouTube videos, photography, and academic interests can only get you so far on those sites without looking like a creep. My friend, TheBeowolfe, and I are always asked to share movies, playlists, and other files by friends – now I can just point them to my website.  After many years of scouring the internet for information, entertainment, and news, I found it difficult to compile all of my favorite parts into one place. I guess you can say this site is more for me than anyone.

To start off, I’m posting one of my favorite songs of all time.
