I am totally in love with the Bargroove series of CDs from the music label Seamless Recordings out of the UK. Seemless consistently puts out the best Deep House out there. Everytime they release a new set it's like eye candy, but for the ears! Bargrooves is a soundtrack that combines both soulful house with edgier techy sounds…funky yet eminently danceable.

I had the most awesome ceviche this past weekend. we went to this trendy Latin restaurant here in town and man was it ever good! The restaurant serves over 100 different rums! I had a Mt. Gay XO Barbados on the rocks, that was totally worth the $16 for the shot. Back to the Ceviche, I ordered the seared tuna ceviche which was delicious. Of course this was a culinary challenge that I had to face. So I tried it at home.

Here is my recipe for Yellowfin Tuna Ceviche:

1 1/4 lbs Yellowfin Tuna
1/4 cup Lime Juice
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Texas Rio Red Grapefruit Juice
2 Roma Tomatoes diced
1/4 cup Cilantro chopped
1/4 cup diced onion
1 Clove Garlic minced
Sea Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper to taste

Mix everything and let it mariniate in the fridge for about 1-2 hours. Serve with Tortilla Chips and ice cold Mexican Beer (preferebly Pacifico Clara or Negra Modelo). Thank me later...

Gizmodo's Anti-RIAA Manifesto

The RIAA is the music industry group that represents the four major record labels — Warner Music, EMI, Vivendi Universal, and Sony BMG — and all of their subsidiaries. They work on behalf of their members, and they have been accused of a wide range of offenses, from price-fixing to stifling innovation. They're able to perpetuate these crimes due to their huge bankroll, but that happens to be the one aspect of their organization we have control over. As consumers, we are the ones who stuff their coffers. By buying albums released by RIAA labels, we're giving them the money they use to sue our peers, stifle innovation, and force DRM down our throats. By cutting off their income stream, we can help make the RIAA less effective and therefore less damaging. Gizmodo's Anti-RIAA Manifesto.

I purchase my music from eMusic.com. I love this site. They sell you DRM free mp3s. If you want to join this site, let me know as I can get free downloads if I referr you. Purchasing music direct from artists websites is another way to help support artists directly. Power to the people... and artists!
