[acoustic cover] throw it in the bag by fabolous feat. the dream

It’s been more than 4 months since I posted my last acoustic cover–Drake and Lil Wayne’s HYFR, so I figured it was a good time as any to start doing them again. Actually, it was a better time than any because I tore my ACL last week and now I am basically trying to stay off my feet as much as possible (something I may delve into in an independent post, later). Instead of complaining and feeling depressed about being half a man (or rather, instead of doing that even more) I decided to take advantage of the time to record a few covers I’ve been working on.

This song is pretty old–Throw It In The Bag–and I remember listening to it when I first started working, in 2009. I actually had no idea who The Dream was before one of my co-workers told me about him being some big head honcho of music production, or something. I still really don’t have a clue who he is. I think this was Fabo’s one-hit wonder because I haven’t heard anything by him of late.

Word of warning: this was recorded after several beers in a hot, May BBQ party so I was in quite a happy place. What this means is that I swear a lot. So if you are offended by that, don’t watch. Enjoy!

my first video uploaded to the internet, ever

I feel extremely wary of categorizing this under “Music” since it most certainly isn’t, but I don’t know where else it would fit. So, about 6 years ago on a summer vacation, I made the haphazard (and, no doubt, boredom-influenced) decision to lear how to play tabla. My mom asked for a contact through her singing teacher and I was all set up. This video, which I uploaded to Google Video back in the day, was shot about a month and a half into my learning. Although it is a pretty crappy tabla rendition, the sadder part about the whole deal is that I probably can’t play it this “well” anymore. Sadface.

Why this sudden jump to the past? Well, YouTube was like, “Hey dude, your videos from Google Videos are gonna be deleted. Wanna put them here?” And I was like, “Yeah, bro, that seems chill.”
