Sarah McLachlan

I was looking for a friend of mines site about his documentary on a young soldier in Iraq called ‘The World on Fire’ and I found Sarah McLachlan’s World on Fire site.  Boy, I was really impressed.  What a great thing to do to point out the comparative realities of life on this planet, and how we, I take things for granted.

The world has so many people in it, and here I am sitting at a new laptop, posting through broadband my silly thought about the world through my eyes.  I am almost broke and looking for new work, thinking I am a poor man in this culture, while my belly is full, I have clean water to drive, have access to health care, my electricity and phone bills are paid for and when I was walking down the street this morning I did not have to fear being blown up, shot dead on the street by armed thugs, or worry about whether the air was filled with plutonium.

That is my mini gratitude list for the day.

    Eric Barrier (Eric B.) and William Griffin (Rakim), were a hip-hop duo known as Eric B. & Rakim. The duo popularized the jazz-influenced hip-hop of the late 1980s. Despite spawning no major chart hits, the pair is generally considered to be one of the most influential and groundbreaking groups in the history of hip hop, due to both Eric B.’s jazzy production and Rakim’s revolutionary rhyming style, which was smooth, seemingly effortless, and used remarkably complex rhyming schemes involving internal rhymes and sophisticated metaphors. It is the general consensus that almost all modern MCs have been influenced in some way by Rakim’s rhyming technique. Eric B.’s use of a James Brown sample in “I Know You Got Soul” introduced the godfather period of extensive use of old R&B and soul music as background music for hip hop songs.
