3 from Benn Loxo

Tags:

I've really got to get round to some updating of the blogroll and a few other chores... I'm planning to add a listing of mp3 and download-related blogs. You can bet Matt Yanchyshyn's Benn loxo du taccu will be on that chart! I ran across three very interesting articles posted there (Some of the links don't work with certain browsers, so get ready to Google if you have to!):

Lebo R.I.P. Lebo Mathosa was a popular personality part of the Kwaito group Boom Shaka where she shared lead vocals with Thembi Seete. She is memorialized in a guest post... she was 29 when she died in a car crash last month.

Thiaroye, then up up The best of Sengalese Hip Hop here, Wagëblë making a go for it. They won the 2005 Senegal Hip-Hop awards and have some good publicity buzz. Check-out their well-designed web site, MySpace page. There’s also a YouTube video of today’s track. The shots of Dakar, Gorée and Thiaroye are great.

Phil & Kenny Rock Africa Could someone from Dakar please tell me why Phil Collins is so loved in Senegal? Seriously, he’s been top 10 radio play for as long as I’ve known the country. To make matters even more confusing, another Benn loxo reader reports that you can’t go a day in Rwanda without hearing some Kenny Rogers.

Be sure to check out Benn Loxo's blogroll... I'm certain you'll be adding new bookmarks to your browser!

Speaking of african music, I just opened up email from CDNow in the UK, which tells me my copy of FreshlyGround's new CD is on the way, so I'll be reviewing it after I get a chance to listen a few times. Only songs I've heard so far are either samples or less than hi-fi YouTUBE videos. Here's a link to my previous post on FG along with links to other "musical" posts, in order of popularity!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
