Ok ok ok...we're basically in the middle of the summer. For whatever reason besides my melanin, I equate the summer with Hip-Hop and Dancehall more than I do at any other point of the year. I'm not exactly sure if that actually means anything, but if you like it as much or if you are simply in a Dancehall & Hip-Hop mood, you might want to check this place out here. No cover, and there will be a recession buster according to going.com. Click on this link right here to RSVP and gully creep your ass all the way to Hooper St.
When: Every Thursday
Where: 291 Hooper St.

I'm late as crap with this one, but there's still plenty of fun to be had. Above are the dates for the concert series being held at the McCarren Park Pool in Williamsburg, BK. Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Prince Paul, and Girl Talk are the only names that I recognized on the list, but I'm pretty sure there are many more talented artists in store for the people. If you hit it up, let us know how it went!
Just in case, you did not know...Bryant Park goes IN year round. I can't get enough of their free and very entertaining events. So here's another one...free yoga starting today, July 21st, until August 27th. This event will be held every Tuesday morning at 10AM and every Thursday evening at 6PM.
For those of you who don't know, Bryant park is located on 5th avenue and 40th st. in Manhattan.
I was over at High Snobiety checking out some stuff that peaked my interest when I saw Nixon's new 2009 lines of watches. The watches are looking classic, modern, simple, and clean...and that of course is never a bad thing.

The name's Jahdan, and you probably have heard him most recently on Diplo and Switch's Major Lazer LP, on the song Cash Flow. He's got a mixtape dropping soon entitled, Bazooka Shot, and an album, Buzzrock Warrior. From what I've heard thus far, these two project should be more than solid considering what I have heard. Enjoy Gasoline Dream's first post from the Caribbean!
Here's the direct link
After leaving that Badu mix on repeat for the past month or so, I definitely had to share Uncle Q's Maxwell Mix with everyone. I'm assuming he dropped this to help promote the man and his album, Black Summer's Night. Babies will be made to this music...and if not...many people will simply practice.
So here it is...right from Filthy Speaker Addict

The bad news is...it's been way too long since I've posted here; however, the good news is that I have more than the Pakistani 20 in my wallet that I always carry. Employment and paychecks are two things of which I'm always fond. ANYWAYZ, you all need to check out this group of DJs known as the Rub. It consists of DJs Cosmo Baker, Eleven, and Ayres. Although straight out of NYC, these dudes play rock sets all over the country and world.
This particular mix is a GEM that I thought I lost a while ago, but fortunately found when perusing the library on my old computer. It's all house and bmore mixes that include everyone from Robin Thicke to frat classic Jesse's Girl.
Ok...enough talking...DL one of my favorite mixes here! I guarantee that you won't find it anywhere else since it's 3 years after the fact. Gasoline Dream exclusive I guess.

Here's the the official news article from NBC Philadelphia
And a childhood friend of mine told me racism didn't exist anymore...I guess it's back for the first time.

Ok...so until I started reading this list that Complex compiled, I didn't realize how much of a fan I am of action movies. I've seen a good two-thirds of this movies, and while I do have some discrepancies with the list...for the most part it's on point. I mean...if it weren't I clearly wouldn't be sharing it. Anyways...check it out.
I stumbled upon this scientifically driven article on the Washington Post website. A lot of times we (myself included) think HIV or AIDS is not that close to home, but I do know someone very very close to me who is infected. He is one of 30.8 Million adults living with the virus according to the international AIDS charity, AVERT.
At first Karen Pancheau figured her son Tyler's nasty rash came from friction on the mats at judo class. But when the rash began dissolving layers of flesh, his father took the teenager for tests, which revealed he had HIV. Karen, too, tested positive for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, which she'd apparently acquired from a blood transfusion in June 1982 and to which she'd exposed Tyler during childbirth and breast-feeding. Yet as Tyler's HIV slowly progressed to AIDS, Karen remained healthy...

This is a definite departure from the norm at Gasoline Dream, but I figured that might be the reason you could be reading this post now. Sooo...my boy Winslow is baking this chocolate cake over in the Land Down Under as I make this post. Apparently, it's the "Ultimate" chocolate cake. I don't know about all of that...but it looks damn good and could win over some girl's/guy's heart. Click here for the recipe. If you happen to bake it, let us know how it turned out.
"Even them white girls trying to be my princess / But I only f*ck with sistas like incest"
Time to take a break from the Hip-Hop being shoved down your throats. The link below is to a song by club/rock group Love & Electrik. I saw the post on discobelle. The song, entitled Sex Video, is a club track that is reminiscent of the days when KTU was that deal playing the old school freestyle tracks. Here it is (direct link).

Death, has unfortunately been hitting home for a lot of people this year. I regret to inform you that for NFL player, Steven "Air" McNair, was found shot dead along with another women, Sahel Kazemi.

The actual act of gay sex has just been decriminalized in India. Just goes to show that there are still some pretty far fetched laws out there that for which one can definitely do some hard time...no pun intended.
The ruling overturns a 148-year-old colonial law which describes a same-sex relationship as an "unnatural offence"
Check out the BBC's account of the situation here
The Warm Up
Ok, so I haven't been on my cheap/free grind as of late. As a matter of fact...I haven't been on much of any type of grind except my employment one. Anyhow...from whenever it was posted through tomorrow, SideBar is serving 2 for 1 King of Popsicles. They're margarita popsicles, and you get 2 for $5 while you rock out to MJ without the tom foolery of T-Pain on BET. Choose from original, strawberry, or watermelon...yea. Guess I spoke too soon...whatever...here's the address
118 East 15th St.
New York, NY
Nahright, posted this mixtape not too long ago. I knew some MJ tribute would be coming out whether it be a mix or a mixtape, but I wanted to find something both unique and good. I believe this'll suffice. This is a nice little combination that blends MJ with the world's favorite emcees (the usual top 5). I'm usually not a fan of blends, but once you listen to this, you'll see why the exception was made. Not every track is for you, but I guarantee you'll find something you'll like a lot.
Get it hurr

Sorry, for the mini hiatus, but that is what employment does to some people. Anyways, apparently the Supreme Court just recently ruled that White Firefighters out of New Haven, Connecticut were unfairly denied promotions based on the color of their skin. This ruling reversed a decision that Sonia Sotomayor, Obama's Supreme Court nominee, endorsed as an appeals court judge. While it is a victory for many conservatives, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg stated that the men do, "understandably attract this court's sympathy. But they had no vested right to promotion. Nor have other persons received promotions in preference to them." Despite the ruling, what she stated was something very necessary.
