Off to Portland

I just wanted to make a quick post and let everyone know that I’m going to be up in Portland until late Wednesday night.

Tonight my roommates and I are going to see Bonobo and Emancipator at the Roseland Theater.

Tomorrow I’m going to have coffee with @jshardison. Then I’m off to check out the Turnbull Center, where I’ll be taking classes in the Fall. And on a complete whim I’m also going to hit up the Social Media Club Summer Social at WebTrends. Should be fun though. Sounds like some cool people will be attending.

A huge thanks to my buddy Gabe for the photo.

Music For coding – Emancipator

So I’m stealing a great idea from the folks over at The Code Dojo and starting a series of “Music For Coding” posts. I thought it would be a fun change of pace and I loved the idea!

My favorite album right now has to be “Soon It Will Be Cold Enough” by Emancipator. It’s super mellow but has a lot of energy to it. It’s mostly instrumental, but there are some vocal samples in there too.

I would characterize it as “Trip-Hop,” but it’s probably more cross genre.

My roommates and I will actually be seeing Emancipator open for Bonobo in Portland on June 21st at the Roseland. Maybe I’ll see some of you there!
