Mid-Week Music Moment: “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

28 Nov

“So, we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us…”

I first heard about Macklemore from Blian (who, somehow, is always 3 steps ahead of me when finding new and kickin’ music). In my opinion, he’s a great follow up to what the Beasties have done for rap. Now that MCA has passed, kids just getting into rap will never be able to see all 3 of them together live. Don’t get me wrong – Jay-Z is one of the kings of the game (he *always* makes it onto my running playlist), but I hold a very special place in my musical heart for the Beastie Boys.

You’re going to want to stop everything you’re doing and listen to this song.


Throwback Thursday: “So What’cha Want” by Beastie Boys

25 Oct


I friggin’ love the Beastie Boys. When I went to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this summer, I got to see the goggles and gloves they used in the “Intergalactic” video. It was pretty amazing.

Next week, I’ll be going to Florida for the Southern Management Association conference! I’m super stoked because it’ll be my first time in  the Sunshine State. Speaking of sunshine, it’s a beautiful day here in the Queen City – it’s supposed to get up to 76 degrees! What the what?!? It’s out of character for October but I’ll take it.

Have a lurvly Thursday everyone!
