A few nice what is internet marketing images I found:

Wednesday, July 14 – Firenze

After 30 hours of traveling, Erica and I slept over 14 hours (7pm last night until 9:30am today). I did wake up for the first time at 5:30am. At that point, I was thirsty, hungry, had a headache, had to pee and had a nose bleed. I got up long enough to take care of the nose bleed and pee, but the rest waited until more rest.

We got up and had breakfast served out in the atrium of the Il Pallagio B&B. Breakfast consisted of rolls, croissants, jams, butter, chocolate spread (Nutella), orange juice, coffee and hot chocolate [warm milk with oompo (little) chocolate].

We then got ready and left for an official walking tour which we never found. We got to the duomo and tried to take pictures. We found out I had left the memory card back at the room. We went back to the room, got the memory card and put some suntan lotion on (good move). We then headed back out the door for the walking tour. It was noon before we had walked to the starting location. We never quite found the actual location and plan to get better details tonight.

We then decided to head to the Ponte Vecchio. This is a bridge loaded with shops (the last bridge still standing after WWII). We browsed through the stores as we headed to the other side. We found some good Gelato (ice cream) on the way over and stopped for some (flavors were lemon for Erica and chocolate for me). We made the mistake of sitting down and were quickly told seating was an extra charge. We decided to keep moving.

Once across the bridge, we checked the map and headed to the Piazzi Dei Pitti and bought tickets for the Boboli Gardens (Giardino di Boboli). This is quite a big garden area and is known as the only place in Firenze (Florence) to get fresh air. We spent a lot of time here taking pictures, soaking up the sun and walking around to see what should be seen.

In the Piazza Dei Pitti, we found a sit-down cafeteria and shared a litre of water (very good after all that walking). We sat down next to a couple that was complaining about the prices (they were told the prices on their bill were for a newer menu (they got an old menu which matched ours). We did not have any problems with our bill.

Funny – The waitress asked us if we wanted gas with our water. ??? Erica thought she was asking if we wanted a glass for our water. The waitress laughed… she wanted to know if we wanted carbonated or flat water (acqua). Neither of us are big fans of gas in our water (or anywhere else for that matter – tee hee), so we opted for the non-gas water.

On the way out, we found some good post cards. We still need to figure out the postal system.

Before crossing the bridge, we discovered a pizza place. We had a Margherita pizza and drink for 7.5 euros each. I asked for half pepperoni on my pizza, which translated to half peppers (tee hee). It was perfecto! The couple we had seen at the earlier cafe strolled up and sat next to us. I asked where we were all headed next.

We crossed the bridge and started back to the Il Pallagio. We visited a couple of street markets. Erica wanted to head back, read and take a nap (sounds good to me).
Once back, I loaded the 120 new photos on the computer and watched them with Erica. As I was typing this, I got another nose bleed. I am not used to ever getting nose bleeds and am guessing it has to do with the climate change.

Once I finished typing this, I decided to locate an Internet connection nearby to post these entries (as my sister sleeps). I finally found a location at 8:45pm and am submitting this now.

Not sure what we may do this evening, but we will likely find a quick dinner and get some rest…

We ended up eating dinner at a quaint place called Gusto at 10:30pm. It was right next to a fancier place that ended up closing its doors when they thought we may enter. Gusto ended up being perfecto! Erica had penne w/ black olives & mushrooms in a tomato sauce and a birra (beer). I had a Calzone and coca (Coke). All for 17.5 euros! The best part, however, was the conversation with the two couples next to us. One couple was from Ireland and the other was from Norway. The couple from Ireland asked about the Calzone when it came out. It was huge and very good and they had never seen such a thing. That sparked a conversation that went well past midnight. They had just gotten married and had traveled on the same day as us from Roma. They, along with 3 others out of 10, were robbed in Roma on a train. Catherine had her camera taken from a bag under her blouse. The camera was taken out of a zipped bag without her ever knowing. I always say if you are going to do something, do it well…

The couple from Norway was a younger couple (in their 20s). They hated Napoli (Naples) and had already been to Venice and Roma. They loved Venice. They were traveling for 4 weeks (Ireland couple for 3 weeks). We talked about politics and I asked about why my ex-girlfriends kept telling me to go find a woman in Norway {grin}.

Off that subject… Did you know they call Diet Coke Coca-Cola Light here?

J Dilla aka Jay Dee R.I.P

J Dilla R.I.P (1974-2006)

After quietly serving as a member of A Tribe Called Quest’s production team, the Ummah, and scoring hits for Busta Rhymes, De La Soul and Pharcyde, Detroit producer Jay Dee became known as a major hip-hop prospect by the late 90s. The hip-hop community took notice of his no-frills, breakbeat-heavy hip-hop style as he helped craft albums for Common (Like Water for Chocolate), Q Tip (Amplified), and the debut for his own group Slum Village (Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1).

By the time of his major-label debut with Slum Village’s Fantastic, Vol. 2 in 2000, Jay Dee was recognized as one of hip-hop’s most admired and desired producers. Jay Dee’s debut as a solo artist came in 2001 with the single “Fuck the Police” and the album "Welcome to Detroit" on BBE.

After assuming the name J Dilla, he joined the Stones Throw roster in 2003, forming Jaylib with fellow producer/MC Madlib, and relocated from Detroit to Los Angeles. The duo released the “The Red” b/w “The Official” in 2003, followed by the album "Champion Sound" and a tour the following spring.

When Pharrell Williams was asked about his favorite hip-hop producer during a BET interview in 2004 he replied, “You may not know his name, but J Dilla, Jay Dee from Detroit.” Indeed, the interviewer didn’t know – J Dilla has eluded the spotlight, preferring the studio to the stage or video. His work is mostly released by independents, for different groups, and under different names, but his core audience and cult status has grown. His pirated beat tapes (instrumentals, raw working material for rappers) have become something of urban legend, as their circulation from hand to hand and over the internet have led to a black market of Dilla beat tape collectors.

Despite contributing two tracks to Common’s career-resurrecting "Be" this year, it’s been a quiet time for Dilla. So where has he been? A cover story in URB (Mar 2004) made public his recent, sudden struggle with illness, and recently rumors began circulating again about health emergencies and hospitalization. Asked about this in XXL (June 2005), Dilla himself partially confirmed these stories. “The rumors were like, ‘Jay Dee is dead’ and all that, but I was just in the hospital. I was in ICU, with all types of tubes. It was crazy.”

Working both from his home studio and while hospitalized – from a portable sound system including turntable, samplers, and small boxes of vinyl brought in and out from visitors – Dilla continued making music at his usual non-stop pace, circulating beats to MCs, and coming up with the foundation of what would become "Donuts".

Begun simply enough as a production beat tape, "Donuts" evolved into a project as unusual as the environment in which it was created. It’s a hip-hop album without MC’s. An album of electronic music that at times sounds like a 70s soul mixtape. Its abrupt transitions and numerous interludes might make you think you’re rapidly turning the radio dial in some strange city where every station is programmed by a certain Detroit hip-hop producer. "Donuts" is J Dilla doing what he does best – crafting hip-hop, soul and electronic music into his own sound.

And a few have asked, “What’s up with the title?” Easy explanation. Dilla likes donuts.
