#AtoZChallenge: Fat Boy Slim


Before I get to today's post, I have an announcement to make. Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Issue #02 is now live! Please do yourself a favour and take a gander. The writing in this issue really is inspirational.

Today's Post:

Ah Fat Boy ... I'm afraid you never inspired me to do much else than drink vodka and dance on bars ... in fact, I think you may have triggered the death of a few creative brain cells during my university years ... FUNK SOUL BRUTHA!



Don't forget to drop by Dawn Ius' blog, my partner in crime, to see her music pick for F.


To see a list of A-Z Challenge hosts and participants, click here. 

To listen to my music click here!

REMEMBER! During the challenge, I will choose a random commenter every two days, to receive a free download of one of my albums. Your choice! That's thirteen winners. How does that sound? Tell your friends! Just comment for a chance to win.

  13. Here's some fun Fat Boy Slim Trivia for ya: on the track Fat Boy Slim is Fucking in Heaven, that sample (the title of the song) is spoken by Freddy Fresh, who is a DJ/Producer from Minneapolis, and was my partner Josh's mentor.

    All of that music reminds me of getting wasted.

  15. I don't think I've ever heard any of this... I think I'll just need to start a list and label it "Jessica's recommendations." :)
