my first (and only) paper planes post.

There's some very good reasons as to why I'm doing this "Paper Planes" post. The first one would be that M.I.A.'s song has become my favourite track for this year. It's just plane retarded (aren't I sooo punny?). Considering the different remixes I've heard, I don't see why it isn't over played around hurrr. I use to be a bit of a hater towards M.I.A. when she first broke out, I found it odd that everyone was on her jock right away. I found her voice to be a bit annoying in that nagging sort of way as well. I'm guessing I got over that. Prolly cause I worked at Aritzia one year and all the girls that worked there had her album on repeat everyday all day. I saw her at the Phoenix in 2005, I think. I was there for sound check interviewing Spankrock for an article. I met Diplo and Rory there for the first time too. And well the rest is history...

The second is that I wanted to promote Zach's amazing photo gallery of M.I.A.'s concert from a few weeks ago. He recently put it up on his website, Take More Photos. Right click that shit and open it on a new tab. Listen to the tracks below while you look Zach's amazing photos. I highly recommend listening to the guacharaca remix from Argentina. Also the Bun B and Rich Boy remix.
