You know the drill by now: listening at work is punctuated by stops and starts and is almost all new material; driving home I listened to some old school(ish) hip hop; and in the mornings, I listen to one of three radio stations that play songs of varying genres. If nothing else, my listening patterns are at least consistent.

My album of choice yesterday was Instra:Mental’s new Resolution 653*. It’s a twitchy dance record that a few friends were discussing and I knew nothing about. I decided to give it a whirl. Not really my thing so I only made it about 75% of the way through the record. Recommended for serious beatz people, though.

I had also forgotten just how good Jay-Z’s Blueprint was. Song after song, I was reminded of just how good Hova used to be. I still believe that Blueprint is dude’s best record because, yeah, it is. The first 5-6 tracks are absolute fire and when it does eventually fall off a bit, it’s not too far. He just sounds invigorated and hungry on this record in a way that you don’t hear from him in most of his catalog.

Total listening time for the day was 114 minutes (1 hour and 54 minutes), which is a pretty steep decline from the last few days. I remember spending a large portion of the day with my headphones on but no music playing. I don’t know why necessarily, but the practice of wearing my headphones at work is just natural now.

*I just realized it, but when I had this in my Excel spreadsheet and would use the autofill feature to copy the artist/album into subsequent rows, the album title was slowly ticking up: Resolution 653, Resolution 654, Resolution 655.
