First off, check out this awesome hour long mix put together by a man who seems to owns the internets these days, none other than Diplo. The I Like Turtles Mixed CD takes it’s name from the YouTube zombie Jonathan, and is chock-full of awesomeness, including Soulja Boy laced over DJ Shadow and Spoon laying the rhythm for Enur and M.I.A.’s rhymes. It’s currently out of stock, but sign up to be updated, and definitely grab yourself a copy. The mixtape also features my favorite Diplo mix ever, VNDLSM’s take on Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. When the beat drops at the 2:18 mark, I literally get chills down my spine.

Next, my Redskins are in the playoffs. We are most definitely the dark horse, and I’m proud to root for such a resilient and hard-working team. Sean Taylor is watching over the Redskins, and as long as he is, we are in good hands. Seattle better watch out on Saturday.
MP3: Chris Paul – “Burgundy Boys (Jay-Z ‘Roc Boys’ Sample)”
Lastly, happy new years.
