If you don’t follow me on Twitter then you might have wondered why I haven’t been posting for the past few days. I’m in North Carolina visiting my girlfriend and her apartment is having some internet issues. A short break is probably good for me every now and then. Luckily, Ramz has been holding this place down.

Every time I go to post I get 95% done and then internet goes out, so we’ll see if I can manage to get this short, no-uploads-involved post done before my internet quickie is over. I wanted to throw up the Coachella lineup in case anyone hasn’t seen it yet. I highlighted some of the acts that stood out to me in red. The lineup looks phenomenal – a really great mix of established artists and up and coming buzz acts. Plus, I was surprised at their really good selection of hip-hop. Jay-Z, De La Soul, Wale, B.o.B?? Shit. Good work, Coachella. I may have to plan a trip.
