I Went Easter Egg Hunting Around The Neighborhood Today .:Apr 04 10:.
Domestic Violence .:Mar 26 10:.
This is a video I made from a track off of my album Hate Your Way to Harmony(2005). Its constructed from video clips and it matches the original audio; in other words all of the audio you hear is originally from the audio track on my album, I fit the video pieces in to match it. Anyways check it out:
Secret Spots Yields and Library Record Mixtapes .:Mar 08 10:.
So yesterday I went to the Secret Spot(a place that will never be dug out completely) to dig out some gems. I found some cool stuff but my man Marsellus Wallace found a grip of stuff.
Some selections I found:
This makes me happy .:Feb 02 10:.
NBC Fucked Up .:Jan 24 10:.
YEAH I SAID IT. The Tonight Show and previously Late Night with Conan O'Brien is something I have watched online with great enthusiasm for the last 2 years and I feel sad and outraged after watching the last episode that aired on Friday January 22nd 2010. THEY MADE A MISTAKE. I watch a little bit of Letterman(uncomfortable humor and dislike of his character), Jay Leno is funny in his own right(kinda corny) but not on Conan's level. I even watch Jimmy Kimmel from time to time because he has some cool guests. THEY ARE NOT CONAN. I like NBCs roster of shows but I feel like something will be missing now. THEY FUCKED UP. I guess the bigger picture that can be drawn from this is if you take a stand for what you think is right with your employer nowadays be ready to lose your job. There are many other things happening in the world that brutally horrible in comparison but I feel like Conan has a genuine sense of humor that I feel matches my own and will be missed. I need an outlet like his for my shitty days and other bullshit. EMO POST. Sorry about the emotional shit but I am disappointed in this outcome that I thought could have a had an easy resolve from NBC. I probably wont watch Leno for a while, that dude stinks of rotten back-door dirty deals...
Bollywood on Fresh Crate .:Sep 26 09:.
This last 4th of July I was invited to the annual park party in Mira Mesa, CA that the homies throw every year; the breaks are played under a gazebo and the B Boys get down until the fireworks. I had actually played there 3 years ago and really enjoyed the event complete with food and good people all around. So as I was waiting my turn to play some breaks to keep the dancing going I watched this dude play some incredible funk vinyl originals. He looked vaguely familiar and we struck up a conversation after I was done with my set about records, rare groove and mixtapes. Our conversation left me with the impression that he knows a lot about music and he is a classy dude. He invited me to a party the next day down in the Embarcadero(SD) but I ended up having a family event to attend. I am usually horrible with names but at the time I remembered his, DJ Smokestack of the Horsepower Crew.
Weeks later I happened to come across some information about him on the internet and realized he had released a Bollywood funk mixtape, a genre I am extremely fond of(Bombay the HardWay etc.). DJ Smokestacks mix Shitala is a supremely selected and mixed journey through the Bollywood landscape complete with call and response choruses, raw red-lining vocals and rhythm crazed breakdowns. Definitely worth a listen whether you are a B Boy/B Girl or simply in search of sonic inspiration. Check it out on Freshcrate:
