Chris Brown logs questionable service hours at daycare

I'd hate to bring up the Brown-Rihanna assault thing again, but it looks like another story has popped up about him that I thought might be pretty interesting to read about here, so let's get to it.

After getting in some serious trouble with the courts for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, Chris Brown was sentenced to 1,440 hours of community service (there may be other stipulations, I am unsure). Now, a man as popular as Brown is, who has been traveling internationally left and right for shows and whatnot, could not possibly have the time to fit in 1,440 hours without severely disappoint fans, right?

Well, if his reports are correct, then that's actually not the case.

The Eagles - Hotel California

Here's a little something that I am certain my fellow studious music-lovers have heard a thousand times over (even if only on the radio!): the ever-popular classic from The Eagles called Hotel California. Whether or not you like it, this song seems to be just around every corner, revered as an epitomizing example of music -- and, if you ask me, rightfully so!

Often, I mention that I study for my college classes by listening to more upbeat, faster electronic music, but I'm afraid that they all lose out to such great rock as Hotel California. This student gives The Eagles an A+ for this one!

Give it a listen, and check for more info on the song after the skip:

Knife Party - Centipede

Mmm, I love this one. For all of those who might be interested (and who don't know already, despite the song's popularity), today's choice for the spotlight is Centipede by Knife Party.

I know that I have been posting quite a bit of dubstep lately (well, electronic music in general, from dance to techno to trance), but that's just what us college kids listen to these days, I'm afraid. :P To try to mix it up for you peeps, though, I'll be sure to try something rock next time. ;D

Take a listen to the song if you haven't (hell, take a listen even if you have!) and let me know what you think of it in the comments. See ya there. B]

Awesome Dubstep Dancing

Check out this awesome video featuring Lenny D'Orlando's Reanimation in Audio-Technica's Audio 911 commercial. The half-robot man dancing to this excellent dubstep beat is Marquese Scott, who is quite popular for having done several commercials, videos, and plenty of shows.

Here's the direct link for those who wish to view this in YouTube: Audio-Technica I Audio 911 I Dubstep

Massive Attack - Teardrop

In the year 1998, long before anyone had even conceived of the television series House (which uses a portion of this song as its opening theme), the already-popular British band Massive Attack released the album Mezzanine. The song peaked at the #10 spot on the UK Singles Chart.

The popularity of Teardrop led to its usage in many shows and films, most notably that of House (as I mentioned before). The heartbeat-rhythm bass drum beat at the opening and closing of the song make it into the House opening theme, and the rest is history.

You can catch some vocals in the song from Elizabeth Fraser, who sang with the Cocteau Twins. Check it out below, and if you like it, then bookmark it. I did so myself so that I can listen to this while I'm studying for my college classes, but you can use it for just about anything!
