That’s just my way of saying hello and welcome back! Canhead still lives and breathes! Summer time and vacations are generally the only time I can actually gather my thoughts enough to spew them online. Lucky for you, it’s sunny and I got some time off the slave ship! Whipppeee, let’s get some incoming links and visiting stats going!
Ten Random Music Related Email sitting in my inbox right now…..

2. Ok, I’m going to say this, with the full knowledge that I will be hit with all sorts of comments after I do say it. But here it goes. While I know who she is, I really have been living under a rock lately. I have not been following the Amanda Knox case. That stops today, as I am catching up on the story. There are way too many links, articles and various web sites that need discussing and sharing. I will keep it short and focus on the latest in depth Rolling Stone (thus the music tie in) article on the case. I might have to go in depth and post a full review later, but for now, read RS article here.
3.Words from Missy Elliot
Official Statement from Missy Elliott:
“There have been some inaccuracies reported in regards to my diagnosis with Grave’s Disease, so I wanted to clear things up. I was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease about three years ago but it really hasn’t slowed me down at all. I rocked my performance on VH1 Hip Hop Honors’ tribute to Timbaland last year. I’ve written and produced a bunch of Grammy-nominated, #1 hits for artists like Keyshia Cole, Monica and Jasmine Sullivan. I toured the UK , Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia . And on top of all that, I’m working on my new album. I feel great. Under my doctor’s supervision, I’ve been off medication for about a year and I’m completely managing the condition through diet and exercise.”
