The Watch List

1. Termanology: New York-based rapper Termanology has now finished his official debut album Politics As Usual. One of this year's most anticipated albums; it drops September 30th, 2008 through a joint venture between Term’s own ST. Records and Indy powerhouse Nature Sounds. This album features some of the finest work Dj Premier has done in years! Listen to: How We Rock ft Bun B. (mp3)
2. Thomas White: I Dream in Black is the solo debut of the lead singer of The Electric Soft Parade. Listen to: The Runaround (mp3)
3. Lonely Boy: Eivind Kirkeby of Norway is a very lonely boy and he sings in a library voice about love and sorrow. Listen to: Girls and Love (mp3)

1. Another great issue of decomP featuring JA Tyler, David LaBounty, Dan Provost (thanks for the chap!), Wayne Mason, and more.
2. When My Girlfriend Lost the Weight by Matt Getty: Read the details as his girlfriend goes from 143 pound to literally nothing.
3. Ned Strawberry by Sean Ruane: Ned has a rough life.
4. A Plain Story, Simply Told by Mazie Louise Montgomery: Another great piece presented by Bearcreekfeed.
5. Muse by Mark Howard Jones: We are all inspired by different things.

1. Keyhole Issue #4 is available for pre-order. It feature work from Jason Jordan, Michelle Orange (great name!), T.J. Forrester, and more.
2. Noted notebooks: The notebook is a vital tool of any writer, artist, or anyone who has a thought really. Nantaka Joy has designed a nice little series of books writing down whatever.
3. Ferrero Pocket Coffee: This Italian gem is a dark chocolate square filled with a real shot of expresso.
