Zankou Chicken and The Reasn’s “Blue Flame”

Well, that was a crazy weekend. My home town football team won a big game in Arizona and I finally managed to take my wife to Zankou Chicken. I would be at Zankou a lot more often if their West LA location didn’t have that stressful parking lot. Instead, I prefer to park three blocks away next to some professional wrestler guy watering the sidewalk.

I’d been hyping the chicken at Zankou since I went there one time in 2010 with a couple coworkers. While our Zankou lunch was still delicious, (let’s smear the garlic butter on EVERYTHING) I may have made the mistake of overshadowing the chicken with the tri-tip. How is any chicken going to compare to tri-tip? It wasn’t fair to the chicken wrap we ordered, and for that I apologize.

We were pretty ready to just have a couple Blue Apron meals for our Super Bowl Sunday, but then we had a flash of genius and ordered some Hooters wings. The Hooter girls don’t actually deliver the wings to your door. You probably knew that. I knew that too but I like to believe one day they will change that policy. We are a 911 sauce household now, having graduated from Three Mile Island in 2014. It should be a crazy year.

I found this song by The Reasn in the Snark inbox and it seems like a nice way to start a post-D’Angelo-on-SNL Monday.

Let’s try to make this week as weird as possible.

“‘Blue Flame’ finds The Reasn pouring out his heart to the object of his affections…over a slow, pulsing rhythm punctuated with roaring electric guitar” writes SoulBounce. “Reasn’s gospel-tinged falsetto injects more than enough soul into the affair as he croons his way into our hearts and onto our radar.”

The track was produced by DK (Devrim Karaoglu), a producer/songwriter. His other credits include Lana Del Rey, Marina & The Diamonds, Nelly Furtado, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and more.

The Reasn recently performed two shows with Kat Dahlia ans Estelle and will be performing in Phoenix at this weekend’s Superbowl Pro Players Meet & Greet Big Game Weekend Concert.
