I think it’s best I warn you of the impending AfroFuturism that is to come.  Last week we kicked things off with ‘The Afronauts‘ and now we’re dialing you in to King Britt’s Noise From the 18th Floor series contribution.

With their 1, 2, 3, 4, FIFF! (thanks, Dave) edition, The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage once again brings the heat with Noise from the 18th Floor. This series aims to expand one’s musical mind, by presenting sounds through a range of genres. This particular edition is curated by Dustin Hurt, the director of Philly organization, Bowerbird.

P.S. The icing on this space cake are the embedded interviews with King Britt and Tracy Tanenbaum. This brotha from another planet will blow your mind!

To accomplish this he would need to exercise enough to burn off 250 calories a day for seven days or eat 250 calories less each day for one week.. Good times. Good times. Opting for a dish that is simple to make yet tastes sensational, is convenient. Because you’ll be saving a lot of time, by making a big batch of something that won’t have your energy levels zapped.. Today, they play away to the Carolina Panthers in the divisional play off round after coming through the extreme polar weather in last Sunday’s wild card game win in Green Bay, Authentic Jerseys Sale where they beat the home town Packers 23 20 with a last gasp field goal.
