~~ ISPS, Beans and I have been saying this for years…. EA Sports FIFA is one of THE most important bridge builders in the game, bringing the game of soccer brand awareness and celebrity together year after year. And this video speaks to just a fraction of what the future is and can be.
Doesn’t mater what your background is, if you do play or don’t play the game on the field….. A video game like FIFA changes the scope of understanding the game in ways the media has failed. And as always, the biggest fight (even with a guy like SKEE) is getting people talking about not just the big names in the world game…. But our players here in the US / MLS.
DJ SKEE reviews FIFA ’15 and shares the game improvements, new features and more.
It’s hard to legit pick a favorite Bob Marley song of all time. I’m not sure it’s really possible to only have one favorite Bob song. But I do love this song right here. It’s obviously not the original. But adding Lauryn Hill to any song (especially when Lauryn was killing me softly) makes any song infinitely better. And this was one of those songs that she helped go from great to even greater.
Add in the fact that the video opens with a soccer scene and this song and video gets even better. The crazy thing to me is that this song only ever appeared on a soundtrack. It never really got the light of day that it deserved. Put this song on anytime and I guarantee people will start smiling and get into that mind space real quick.
Shouts to Neems for reminding me how great this song is.
Since we are on the topic of Bob and songs that might not ever really got the burn that they deserve, I’m going to throw one more out there. The original Soul Rebel song is perfect. It needs nothing. Let’s be clear on that. But since we are talking about what are theoretically Bob Marley remixes, let me offer this offer up this remix of Soul Rebel to you.
Chivas USA and Heal the Bay worked together with fans to clean up Venice Beach for the Coastal Clean-up Day on September 20th.
These kinds of things are pretty cool and I wish I’d known about it before it happened. I’ve done a few things like this whether its an LA River Clean Up or something down at the beaches here in SoCal. Its interested just how much friggin waste and trash we produce and how much we really dont pay attention to our footprint, until you have to clean up after other people. Glad to see Chivas doing some things and getting a group of people down there.
* Obviously this is a super first world problem, but honestly, down the road this will have a real effect on the world and societies.
Dash Radio was created by the world’s biggest DJ’s who became fed up with the limitations of regular FM radio (and hate internet playlists that pose as radio powered by soulless computers). Together, they formed Dash with one goal: to provide the best radio platform in the world.
What this is, is streaming music, with incredible variety, with zero commercials, live and 24/7, for free. Its borderline genius
I’ll tell you how I got here… remember the FIFA 15 Launch the other day in NYC… well, when I linked the image from Clint’s IG, I saw this picture as well, and I knew that dude looked familiar, but I didn’t think to look in to it, until today while watching Sunday football. Turns out, SKEE has a new venture called DASH Radio and FIFA 15 has a channel.
I knew he was a DJ, but I forgot his name. Anyway, I did some creative googling and figured it was Skee – what an idiot I am – because Skee is a pretty big deal. Then I google Skee and see what kind of noise he is making these days, because you may not know it, but a lot of the shit you see on the internets from your favorite personality, whether its podcast or some sort of music radio, or youtube channel interviewing culture folks and content creators and influencers – Skee has been doing that for 15 years damn near.
Skee is a sneaker head, music dude obviously, and borderline genius with this social networking and branding thing and I think he might have another one with DASH radio. Its brand new, having just dropped in August, but it makes a ton of sense.
Its not like a Beats Audio, or Spotify, or Google music or even satellite – because to be quite honest, thats basically just terrestrial radio in a different skin. What we’d hope satellite radio to be – commercial free since I’m paying for it – has gone the way of the dodo.
Streaming sites are algorithms choosing music. You can find some interesting things, sometimes, but to me they are too busy messing things up trying to make it even better than what other sites do. Pandora is pretty good. Beats still has some work to do. Spotify I love, but I use it as a ginormous mixtape instead of a streaming site.
Satellite radio, and I’ve been with it since the beginning, was fresh as hell at first because it was all about content and different channels with different kinds of music with no commercials and very little personality talking all over the music. Now, basically, its just radios version of cable. Which is great because the content is good, its more specialized, and there are big names associated with stations, but the original reason I got in this thing – the whole no commercial parts and not having to listen to DJ talk all over the music and do station resets all the time, is gone. *
This, has promise, because it seems like the DJs are now here as curators of great music. You can read all about it at the link below.
