While I'm writing this, slats of tepid sunrays are slipping through the window while outside puzzled birds are chirping on lukewarm, bare-knuckle branches. Seasons are getting jumbled. It's supposed to be winter in Europe. But not according to the temperatures. Nothing glacial goin' on outside. You can't trust a thermometer these days. When does spring really begin? I'll believe the coming of the flourishing season when Outkast starts its massive intercontinental reunion tour.
Until then, I'll bide my time, not trusting the bird's eye view or the climate, warming myself on Big Boi's 'Mashup Mondays': free weekly installments of glowing Big Boi songs mashed and mixed with the likes of Sade, Blue Oyster Cult and funk disco cult leaders Shalamar. Daddy Fatsacks hisself has promised nine tracks and right now he's made good on six of them. They are all free to download, so If you've been missing out, this is your chance to make up for lost time. The entire collection is perfect for cruising across sunlit, slowly drifting contents. (Now that's a review quote.)
Each track also has excellent trippy video game graphics, so check those out, too.
