Here’s The Contrarian‘s cover of Barbados-born pop hottie Rihanna‘s unstoppable summer jam, "Umbrella." Couldn’t get Jay-Z on this version, but it was still fun to record. I resolved to take only a single day to track, mix and master, hence the lame-ass drum programming. There are a few other flubs as well, but with an undertaking this silly, who cares? I only did it to get the damn song out of my head. Didn’t work.
We’ve decided to christen our chinchilla Zbigniew — Zbig, for short. What’s that? Why yes, he is named after famed geopolitical realist/ex-National Security Advisor/semi-hawk statesman Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Here’s some pictures of him sleeping in his pimp cage. I’ll take some action shots later, when he wakes up.
