Happy Birthday Kerouac

I’m a week late here, but this past March 12 would have been Jack Kerouac’s 90th birthday. Arguably the most influential writer of the 20th century, his lyrical prose made music of mere words. It’s tragic that he got so sad as he aged, but the truths he imparted upon the world before he left will echo for years to come.

Hipster Disco

disco, n. a style of popular music for dancing, usually recorded and with complex electronic instrumentation, in which simple, repetitive lyrics are subordinated to a heavy, pulsating, rhythmic beat

An underappreciated genre, in my opinion, as most people only associate it with 70s era John Travolta. But there are many modern artists producing fine disco tunes that will make you want to shake your badonkadonk all up and down the dance floor.
