One of the Dopest Raps You’ve Never Heard

If you smiled all the way through this song, you might be a hip hop head- that is a connoisseur of hip hop music. I would like to pretend I was the first one to discover this if it didn’t already have as many hits, but chances are, you’ve never heard this little number. At least I’ve discovered it for you. This is the quintessential rap and hip hop head’s anthem by a new pair of artists local to me *coughs* that I just heard last night.

Enjoy

My Fav Halloween Story in 1 Minute

There is a really cool Halloween story about a little man being chased in the dark of night in his own neighborhood by his giant creepy nemesis. Desperate and in fear for his life, he got the courage to fight back.

Must’ve taken every ounce he could muster from his small frame to fight his way to escape. He believed that the bloody scene meant that he had triumphed against the foe who haunted him….at first

Follow the link to hear the story ending’s interesting twist. Enjoy! Happy Halloween

New Music, Artist, Poetry, Challenge – Schooled 

This one is called “Schooled”. It’s Back-to-School time for kids down here. With just few days of Summer winding down and the school year beginning, the teachers will have their hands full in just a couple more weeks, but for now, the kids still run this town. And that energy is what I wanna see so…

Show Me:

  • Beauty in the Basics
  • Brand New
  • Powerful Youth

  • Education (any interpretation)
  • School Bus Yellow
  • Primary Colors
  • Young Nerds and/or Geeks

Here’s your chance to get in on a  Challenge from the beginning, and this is my favorite one! See the Background info at the end of this post. But this is the New Artist Challenge where you help us discover new music, poetry, and art. I’m ready to hear and review something new. This time, there’s no caveat, I will write a review of at least one and possibly scale that number as needed. I understand that some  don’t like starting in the middle and catching up, so this is great opportunity for you too. Let’s find and review the next great music.

There are several important changes as a result of accommodations to accept all types of artists- including tasteful art rated above R or Explicit.

How to Submit for Review?

Interact with Me Tonight 8 PM CST

I’m here Honey c’mon in, and grab a sweet tea. What do you think about the question?

*don’t forget to hit refresh to see the updates as you’re following along

Tonight’s Question …is for artists of all disciplines

Q. Does your art imitate life, or is does life seem to be imitating art? For the 3rd time in a week, I’ve written a seemingly random work only to learn that a public and related thing had just occurred. Has that ever happened to you? Why do you think so?

Thanks!!

I had such a difficult time last week that I decided to start early! And I am so glad I did that. This week was absolutely amazing because I found so much great work. I have been sharing it everywhere. I’ve been inundated with inspiration, so I’m tinkering with another little blog where I can put the stuff that doesn’t fit neatly here (called I Love Mekanism – More Love, for now).

Lord Hammercy, Billy! It’s Been 50 Posts!

Unlikely Music Review as Poetry: New Song By Billy Lord was the very first post here. With permission, I reviewed his newly penned song, Lone Star, as a poetic work. Thanks Billy! These lyrics and his inspiring story helped sparked interests in discovering new artists, new music, and great song content. I urge you to read through the comments for a few of those sentiments. Many asked, “Where can I find out more about Billy Lord and his music?”-wanting to also discover a musical gem. This song gave rise to the New Artist Challenge to discover more new music and now a related series that begins Sunday here on Interact with Me a 8:30pm CST.

And for Billy Lord, on the heels of his recent performance at Independence Park in Bristol, Rhode Island, as part of a 4th of July concert series, now he’s working on new music for his upcoming album, National Anthem, and preparing for an upcoming performance of his critically acclaimed songs from his début album, American Music available on billylordmusic.com at the EOTM Awards on August 2, 2013. For more information about Billy’s upcoming events, appearances, and performances, follow him on facebook, instagram, and twitter: billylordmusic. Now, go find and support some new music!


Thank you for celebrating with me tonight -lovemeka

I also recommend the following new artists:

  1. Femke
  2. Chyno Soul
  3. Tess Henley

3 New Changes at Love Mekanism Project

I should say “changes really soon”. More love!!! That’s for sure… I’m still grasping that I’m not alone in here. Your patience and presence feels absolutely amazing. Of course… I did redecorate that one time…but I came up with a few ways to make things more comfortable and easily navigable for you without compromising the integrity of the project:

1) Open and Unedited: You will find a link or tab or menu to make it easier to differentiate works that are currently open and/or unedited. No one asked, but I’m just tryna help 🙂 that way at least you know when I’m working or if I have abandoned a project. Let’s see how that goes.

2) Schedule. For the regular ‘series’ posts and the one new upcoming series, I will post a schedule and try that out, so look for it! Got my fingers crossed, and we’ll see if that works too… It might help if they occur less randomly. It always surprises me who looks forward to what, but I’m just glad you’re reading and benefit. Thank you!

3) Challenge details. More details, rules that I kept in mind, and support related to Challenges. I understand that some are coming later and want to complete the ones I have on their own. Also the New Artist Challenge is becoming a series instead of a sporadic event! <–so excited about that

Yes, we urge to merge

Getting the point to our brothers and sisters who don’t know the time

intellect to revolve TO EVOLVE to self-respect

Cause we got to keep OURSELVES in check

Inside Wants Out

Happy Sunday! I’m personally inviting you to interact with me tonight as you wind down this evening. Here, I’ll be posting a chat thread to update you on my progress for last week’s challenge and posting Part 2 of that challenge. I will also talk about my adventures in preparing for Challenge to Act Out. You are encouraged to post your Level points, questions, or any support for either challenge.

 

Look out for the update on the newest I found interpreted from Mira’s winning song, Daughters by John Mayer from last week. If there’s time and inspiration, I have also challenged myself to actually write a short poem 5, so there’s a chance for that too.

 

See ya soon, and thank you so much for reading.

New Artists and Free Verse Independence Day

New Artists and Free Verse Independence Day. This challenge provides an opportunity for newly inspired artists or anyone who wants to share or try out experimental music, poetry, or art, can feel free to share their own at http://lovemekanism.org today, Independence Day, July 4, 2013

-lovemeka

New Artists and Free Verse Independence Day

“Yesterday, I shared what I aspire or admire in poetry these days, and now I want it back…the inspiration which consumes you now… Today, I want more–to crawl the walls of  followers– artists for what I might feature today… the liberation of words, visuals, and sound– poetry transferred from crimped damp paper over slippery keys through clearly blurred vision.” -lovemeka

I want simplicity forced out through desperately hoarse channels–beautiful music cracking all the wrong words in all the wrong ways as these wrongs somehow make it alright and– relax… it’s perfect sense…it doesn’t work while you’re tense…more!

— more unpolished–barely poetry, more melody, more art–just more freaky-lookin-how-the-hell-is-this-beauty? It just is…something of that which comes from the raw unfamiliar places that span the emotions of human energy conduction– synaptic heat…spirit…muscle contractions…off beat and on rhythm though it looks so simple.

Wave your flag at me; be sure I see you by commenting  below or sharing anonymously. The challenge is to free your inspiration here on http://lovemekanism.org and pay it forward by freeing others with your free verse or haiku– no rules this Independence Day. Newbies and returnees, this is for you.

Happy 4th of July!!
