Like Skee-lo's Return

This posts a day late and a baller short.

Summer's got 3 deaths. 1) When they close the pools on labor day. 2) When that Old pervert wind sweeps away the young warm jets. 3) And when we dust off some jams to pound the fucking nails in on this season. Just in time for the first snowfall

it's been too long, internet. (tomorrow could you make a bastille day soundtrack?)

tonight you can listen to waves/neuroses. based on experience:

the researchers ranked the states and the District of Columbia in each of the five dimensions of personality (the so-called Big Five) that psychologists commonly use to describe individual humans: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism.

Rhode Island ranked poorly on all.

The state was judged 40th on extraversion, characterized by positive emotions and the desire to seek the company of others; a near-bottom 48th on conscientiousness, which involves self-discipline and organized planning; and a middling 28th on openness, an appreciation for adventure and imagination. The state was ranked 45th on agreeableness (a tendency toward cooperation and compassion), 6th from the bottom, but was number 2 on the one negative trait, neuroticism (a type of emotional instability).

1. air france - beach party

2. rainbow bridge - big wave rider

3. fox bat strategy - you're the one

4. el-g - time et henry

5. scout niblett - in the sine wave

6. j dilla - waves

7. viking moses - vietnam malaria nostalgia

8. boris - fuzzy reactor

9. el guincho - palmitos park

10. black kids - listen to your body tonight

11. das racist - combination pizza hut and taco bell (wallpaper remix)

12. future bible heroes - real summer

13. willie nelson - bloody mary moning

14. the microphones - karl blau

15. minutemen - do you want new wave or do you want the truth?
