Hip Hop Saved My Life-And Other Stuff

Last Saturday night I went to a Lupe Fiasco concert with my brother-in-law.  I was probably the oldest person there.  Any other Lupe fans?  My favorite songs of his are Daydreamin, Superstar and Shining Down.  An interesting little tidbit of info is he recently participated in Summit on the Summit, in which a group of musicians and actors (Jessica Biel was one) climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness on the global clean water crises.  You can watch the trailer here.  And for you Twihards, he wrote a song for New Moon called "Solar Midnight".

 
Had to get some proof I was there!

Here I am with my bro-in-law waiting for the show to start.  I'm mad doggin' in case you were wondering.  It seemed appropriate at the time.  Now, not so much.


So hip hop didn't really save my life, but who knows, maybe someday it will.  Never say never.

In other news, I got a new doormat at World Market today.  And some new marigolds:


Also a new rug to put in front of the slider in the kitchen:


Me likey.

  7. Hi Jackie! Yep, Lupe Fiasco fan here (and my husband, who is 48, turned me on to him). He's such a hipster, lol! We are going to see Vampire Weekend on April 9 and I feel confident that we'll be the oldest people in the audience! Well, good for us!
