I know it’s been a long time but I am getting back on the blogging train! Lately I feel like I have had a lot to say but not a safe place to say it so I am going to start writing in the Word again because the people who read it I don’t see everyday or I just don’t care what you think so be on the look out for more posts! Peace out!
Today in history - the Senate confirms the nomination of Thurgood Marshall to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Marshall becomes the first African American to sit on the Court.
President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Solicitor General Thurgood Marshall earlier that summer on June 13, 1967. Despite the dissent that was sparked by Marshall’s appointment, the Senate confirmed him on August 30, 1967.
Marshall was a noted civil rights lawyer and had argued for the plaintiffs before the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, the landmark case ending racial segregation in public schools. Marshall remained on the Supreme Court until 1991.
Here are pictures from LBJ and Marshall’s Oval Office meeting regarding the announcement of the nomination.
So I talked about music that I love so now I am going to talk about things that I hate! Get the correlation? Hahahaha Idk. So these are the five things that I hate right now! Here it goes!
1. Dirt Road Anthem By Jason Aldean This song is seriously one of the worst songs I have ever heard! I hate how he raps sort of at the begging of the song. I hate how he talks about drinking and driving and hate how I have to listen to every day at work multiple times a day! Also the fact that Jason Aldean looks like a deep fried country dirtball doesn’t help this songs case!
2. CABINS I don’t know if it’s the Cabins themselves that I hate or the people that go to them. I just think there is so much hype involved with going to a cabin it just kind of gets on my nerves especially since I live in the Minnesota! Idk maybe I am jealous…but I highly doubt it!
3. Plankin & Owlin I don’t know why I hate this one but just look at this picture
4. Shorts, Nikes, and Long Socks I just think like it’s a dumb trent and people are trying to look like a college rapper. Idk this just really grinds my gears
What Word readers! I am going to try something new this entry. I taking a stab at writing a music review, I thought that it would be cool to write about a group that I have really started to like this summer. They are a fresh group called The Naked and Famous. They are a 5 member group with 1 female lead singer and four male band members that come from New Zealand. They have what I would call an electric pop alternative sound they kind of remind me of MGMT kind of a psychedelic sound. They name of their album Passive Me, Aggressive You which has on it probably their biggest single Young Blood which I posted earlier this summer because it is my Summer Anthem it just represents where I am and they lyrics are pretty simplistic which I like. Their music is kind of like fun more exciting background music, I am not trying to say that in a negative way I think for instance that it would be playing in the background at a very trendy restaurant or club or clothing store ( LIKE URBAN OUTFITTERS CP SHOUT OUT IF YOU’RE READING THIS!) just really like chill music. Another song off of their album that I really liked is the first song All of This which I love the instrumentals in the song especially what I think is heavy snare drum! It just has a very infectious beat! I embedded the music video so watch it! Bottom line this group is great they are featured on the American Eagle Sampler as well as the Nike Music sampler which sound like a pretty big deal. They also performed at the Itunes Music Festival in London. They will be coming to the Twin Cities this October at First Ave hopefully I will be able to come back from the Warty to see them perform! Idk I have watched some of their live sets on live and they seem pretty cool to watch!
