I (Micah) am often stuck for things to blog about. It’s not for fault of having ideas; I always think of a brilliant idea (usually on a bike ride) and then promptly forget it by the time we get home.
A while back, Catherine suggested that I do a music series on the fortytwentyfour; I wasn’t so sure it would relate.
After the follies of this week and our staircase; I decided it was time to unleash the first Inspirational house Song—something to get us through our work for the week and our subcontractor stress.
IHS#!=”Shutterbugg” by Big Boi f/ Cutty
I picked up the Big Boi album “Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty” on Saturday and have been listening to it non-stop. The name alone is reason to buy the album, but it is epic.
I always thought (whisper) that Big Boi was the more talented member of OutKast when it came to music, and his half of their double album—”Speakerboxxx” was evidence of that. I
loved love Outkast and their string of albums in the late 90s ending with “Stankonia” was amazing.
“Shutterbugg” is classic Big Boi; deft, clearly enunciated rapping and a bounding beat that makes you wanna dance. I just watched the video and it’s even better. Some of the more intriguing elements in the video: a blatant Crown Royal product placement, puppet versions of Big Boi and his band, neon bodysuits, and dancing in front of a wall of keg cups.
This first IHS would be good for cleaning, cutting back blackberries, enjoying some post work drinks, or just about anytime you need a little inspiration,…and someone to rhyme “cut a rug” with “shutterbugs”
