“Coco was created by a little girl who was shipwrecked on a deserted island after a plane crash. Creator Craig McCracken describes Coco as having the head of a palm tree, as the child ate coconuts. The beak is a deflated raft as that was the means of transportation onto the deserted island, with the body of an airplane marking the plane she was on and the human feet that were sunburned as the only thing that child saw.”
Real talk tho fosters was my shit

Gary Clark Jr. — When My Train Pulls In
Living in New York City, I am blessed with the opportunity to always go to concerts, especially free concerts. That’s why when Gary Clark Jr. gave a free show at Central Park’s Summerstage on Saturday, July 28, I felt that it would have been a crime not to go. I had been a fan of Gary Clark Jr.’s music for some time now and going to his concert only reaffirmed his musical genius for me.
Let me start out my saying that on that Saturday afternoon, there was a rainstorm of apocalyptic proportions. A sea of umbrellas consumed the muggy outdoor venue in the heart of Manhattan’s backyard. It was not the greatest of concert weathers in the least. Nevertheless, when Clark swaggered up on stage, guitar casually in hand, and started to jam, the rain did not seem to matter much any more.
Gary Clark Jr came alive when he started performing. His soulful voice was only amplified by the passion and skill with which he played his guitar. His lyrics touched the core of every audience member in the venue. You could tell because no one would dare take their eyes off of him.
With every song that swiftly came and went, the crowd was overcome with excitement. Then, a magical thing occurred. Just when everyone seemed to get accustomed to the gloomy weather, the sun began to creep up behind the grey clouds and shine its much-awaited rays right on the crowd. Whether that was a coincidence or not, I have no idea. I would like to think that the almighty combination of the blissful sounds of Gary’s guitar and the subsequent roar of the vibrant audience had something to do with it.
Haven’t heard a lot of tunes like this lately. I’m a big fan of contemporary blues. This could easily fall into the adult-alternative or rock buckets, but the tone this dude has and the soul imbued in the shred at the end make me look at this track from a blues perspective. I’m a little ashamed of myself for not hearing about this guy sooner, and whatever he’s doing I hope he does more of it. Scope Bright Lights by Gary Clark Jr. Dope record.
