I had a design prof that was always telling us how important it was to write every thought/inspiration down hoping that something will click and you’ll come upon a “golden nugget”.

I found one of those tasty nugs. Now break out your nugs and toast to this.

Go here to DOWNLOAD Jaydiohead

They mixed this so well. Enjoy fellas.

My plain’s outta reach, yeah I’m on a new plateau “Danny, why you had to do that fo’?”

Well, It’s that time of year again. I remember when I was 18, I had little if any clue what was going on. I remember just being generally confused about shit. I had a plethora of very ill thought out ‘plans’ or ‘ideas’ that i would soon realize are completely ridiculous to pursue. But fuck it, at 18 you bet i still tried most of them. I had no clue what was in store for me in college. I had no idea how much I would be shaped by the upcoming years. Maybe the memories are faded and blurry because my mind state was pretty faded and blurry. No way to reverse that. But hey, when better to truly squeeze life of all its delicious juice? I say fuck it, and quoting my favorite line of one of the most genius musicians and song writers of all time,

“Id rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.”

-Tom Waits

On February 27th, Danilo the bro, turns 18.

He seems to have a little more of a clue than i did at his age. But Im still expecting a plethora of stories of “that one time i got really hammered,” or “shit man, you wont believe what happened last night.”

In honor of the man that he is (almost), he created a mixtape. Like any self-respecting 18yr old male should. Appropriately entitled “18 with a Bullet,” Danilo seems to define his first 18 years of owning this earth with some fly music. Yeah this list has Nikitina, Danny!, Ice Cube, and of course  Samuel L being a genuinely bad-ass motherfucker.

All the best, the love, the good to come, youre my backbone

happy birthday danilo

this is mixtape is ridiculous.
