Well how nice is this indirect win.
Just when I think no one is really reading this shit, I always get some kind of sign from somewhere that awesome, nerdy people always find their way to my work and random ramblings about great music. First it was the BBC, then it was getting nominated for a Canadian Indie Blog Award (which I lost by Los Angeles default). There have been other things along the way (Hey Ma B), but being even indirectly shouted out by the King of all Hip Hop and Music Nerds… Mr. Nelson George… man. I have to step my game up on general principle.
So remember how I’ve been hyping up my boy Damon as The King of the New Funk Era? Welp, it seems as if Mr. George actually read my sentiments on Dam-Funk, and agrees with me in some fashion…. as he took the time to retweet the article to his readers. Wow. I’m just here to say I am humbled and to document this mini-victory properly.
If you do read this, sir I loved those soul documentaries you were doing with VH1. You should get back to that. And Hip Hop ones too. I can totally help. Thanks for finding the site and supporting good music.
