When I sat down to recount my year, I hadn’t even really registered what I got to see. All my friends moved away. I pretty was miserable.
I spent the majority of the year hanging out by myself.
But now looking back, I was really fortunate this year.
I got to see the Black Keys spread love and become one of the biggest rock bands in America. RJD2 played our 7 Year Anniversary. Jay Electronica came to town and did a really intimate show then got signed 7-8 months later by Jay-z to Roc Nation. I solicited Wavves’ opinion on Psychedelic Horseshit. I witnessed what Dame Dash’s guy, Currensy ,was doing the night Jay Electronica signed with Jay-z. I talked to Bone after a nationally publicized arrest. Well, read away if you want.

The image source of this tattoo is from the cover of Chulahoma, an ep by the Black Keys. It is on the body of a female that had a family member die of cancer. The finger pointing it out belongs to Mary Stormer, Key’s drummer Patrick Carney’s mother. Mary Stormer’s son and Patrick’s brother, Michael created the image that is tattooed on this girl. The girl got this tattoo because Chulahoma was what got her through hard times.
The tribute to Junior Kimbrough IS a blues record.
Mary Stormer, and I explained to the girl that the band would really appreciate this. Mrs. Stormer told me to take a picture and send it to Michael. The band was onstage so they couldn’t give the girl a hug. Continue reading

Obviously the big story today is the OSU football game. Throw your rah-rag up.
Well, after the bucks win, whether you head to a parade, a festival, a BW3 or take a nap, try to come out to the Daymon Day Parade Afterparty.
Columbus legends The Fonosluts and DJ True Skillz will team up with Get Right Columbus, CJ Townsend and Iyeball of Fly Union to do it like they use to do , and continue to.
New School x Old type jump-off.
CJ and Iyeball will be coming returning from New York tonight where Iyeball’s rap group Fly Union and CJ just performed at Santo’s Party House for a BET Music Matters Showcase.
Daymon was a mentor for Fly Union, obviously a member of the Fonosluts, and he was also in BSA along with the Get Right Columbus fam.
Daymon would be proud of both Get Right, Fly U’s success, and be stoked to see Hip Hop culture in Columbus flourishing.(this is just the tip of the iceberg.)
So it should be fun.
