2 (of many) cool Xmas presents

I’m trying out the Amazon plugin, so I figured I’d use it to put in a plug for two Christmas prezzies that are pretty cool.

Who Is This America

First, one of the many excellent CDs I got was Antibalas’ Who is this America, which is seriously excellent. Great Fela-Kuti-style afropop with wonderful (long) dance tunes with very cool political lyrics that Fela would have been proud of. A definite keeper.

The Kite Runner

I didn’t get so many books this year, mostly because I go so much music :-), but one book that’s looking really good is The kite runner. I’m only about a quarter of the way through, but the first section (in Afghanistan in the 70’s in the years before and in the early years of the Soviet occupation) is worth the price of admission alone. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of the novel.

No tag for this post.
