BeyonceI had a great time on Halloween, some of my co-workers and I dressed up and ended up marching in the Halloween Parade on 6th Ave. Next year I am leaving work early to walk the entire parade route, it was so much fun. I’ve never seen so many people in one place in my life.

I have a musical confession to make, ok two…
#1 (the more embarassing one): I actually like a couple songs on Justin Timberlake’s new album. Don’t know how it happened, because I wanted to hate it on principle – but that whiteboy’s got soul. That’s right, I said it.

#2: I really like Beyonce’s new song “Upgrade U”. It’s ridiculously great. God bless her, she compares herself to MLK Jr. (which might be a side effect of hanging around with HOVA) but now I’m convinced that all a man needs is a necktie dimple and something from a place called Audemars Piguet.

I’m getting excited to see Talib Kweli in December. He was so chill when we saw him last year. He shook Jesse’s hand and he actually signed a poster that I was hanging on to. I’ve got to say that I like him alot better in concert than Mos Def. They still kick ass together, but Mos Def seems to get all full of himself after a few songs when he’s on stage alone – where Talib just rocks the house. I’ve been thinking of all the concerts I’ve been to and here’s some people I’ve seen.
– The Roots, Public Enemy, Rakim, Lupe & Rhymefest, Tori Amos, Ani DiFranco, KRS-One, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, De La Soul, Roni Size, Underworld, GangStarr, Buena Vista Social Club, etc…

Oh and how could I forget my first two concerts ever: The Cars & Wang Chung, and Cinderella, Winger & the Bullett Boys. I’ve come a long way.
