Sketchy Santas makes me really happy around this time of year!

There are only two things I want for Christmas and I didnt even know I wanted them until last night! Here they are:

Also...on December 10th it marked one year that I have en doing this silly blog and the fact that people look at it and read it and comment on it and send me emails and want me to post things about their bands(which I hardly ever do) really makes me happy!! I would love to be able to keep doing this for several more years at whatever pace it is that I choose to do it at! So, I guess, THANKS!!! Its been fun!!

and next month I will be releasing my official debut album called "Kuna Fa Dayzzzzz" so if anyone would like a copy I will post all the info here about it here!

were here to
bring the people and the music and the movement all together now
we see through
repetitive etiquette and the highly unoriginal
were here to
bring the people and the music and the movement all together now
they will lose
check it out now, check it out now
this is a necessary change from the grim simple and plain
gonna exercise that brain to break the chain pain is a part of gain
no need to explain
we innovate to generate an intricately interwoven tapestry
of musical and ethical epiphanies
the interest is minimal
im on an awesome mission with an angel
that can take it all the way to where the sun is
just like a runner loving running
tryina turn it into a simple symphony
simple sentiment adrenaline is coming back
im in the innercity, where i gotta be a superstar
id rather be a galaxy
but how you see is so dependent on the medicine the rhetoric
and how at any second you think you could sit on the brink of this
world is all asleep and i have no apologies
i breathe
keep my sight on what we ride on
let bygones be bygones
the migraines dont sidetrack
my final destination nothing rivals predetermination
to exterminate the germination
of a nation that accepts anything thats thrown in its fat face
cause when theres nothing left
theres no more point to the rat race
we dont waste a minute of the day
dont be offended what im saying
trying to send it all way to another stage
a creative alternator rated and greater
the crazy maniac mellodies end up all up in your face wait
success aint only based on self esteem
it takes a sense to differentiate between
whats yours and someone elses dreams
i felt the screams climbing up my cold spine
saying nows the time to put in all the energy
to get rid of the enemy... i said it so..

were here to
bring the people and the music and the movement all together now

we see through
repetitive etiquette and the highly unoriginal

were here to
bring the people and the music and the movement all together now

they will lose
Cuz music aint good if it got no style

sick of the same old thing

free us and touch what we cant see
twist that knife and watch him bleed
lost inside its way too deep
someone choke me
help me breathe

run from mistakes
right in my face
feels like im running in place

Hi! Got a Few Hours??

Ladies and gentlemen! You have hit the motherload(sic) Ewwww I hate cliches! We have been busy here and I have still managed to make some posts here and there, but today is the day that I unleash all of the fury that has been stored up in the back of my head whilst I have been busy. Let's just say this post is a good few months in the making...

Hit 'er JOHNNY!!!

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs live at some music store doing a cover of "Hyberballad" by Bjork

Wyclef Jean "If I Was President" live from the Dave Chappelle show(sorry no video but you get da pitcha)

This blows my effing mind!!!!! Check out that intro "Uhh! Hi pretty lady! Look at the puppy! Know where that puppy sleeps?" "Any place he wants to!" "That's right!"

I mean! Have you seen the new V??????

Also...somebody in Hollywood: give this guy a f*%cking job!!! This kid made a fake trailer for a fake Thundercats movie by adding effects to scenes in other movies!!! Look at it!

Aight! nuff videos!! Call in the calvary/cavalry lets get to some muzik!

Sorry for taking something from bwotb but Men with No Iq's are two dudes you have to hear! On myspace they are listed as "a brutal-rock band", Jeremy Estes from Popmatters says "dude kind of sounds like...he wanted to sound like paul stanley" and "it's kind of bad ass and inept at the same time". But all I know is this is what real music sounds like.

The Men With No IQ's "Can't Resist It" (MP3)

The Men With No IQ's "Dreamin' " (MP3)

TEEZAR is "the soundtrack of a Budweiser and meth binge"

Rokkin On
Reign of Rokk

tr0n is an experiment in 8 bit reggae and a shameless self-promotion

8 Bit Militant Style
The Painter

The Bug "Poison Dart (feat. Warrior Queen)
Jay-Z and Marvin Gaye "Hello Brooklyn (ft. Li’l Wayne)"
Major Lazer "Pon De Floor (Chewy Chocolate Cookies Remix)"

For some reason I had this link in my bookmarks. It is a webpage with 171 different video game ads from the 80's(all HQ!)As Nichole says "Thank You! Me from the Past!"

Cake Wrecks:A gallery of deformed, distasteful and bizarrely decorated wedding and birthday cakes.
Basically.. this:

Please Pass the Biscuits

i swiped this directly from Beware of the Blog so I dont wanna hear no guff!!

Here are five versions of Please Pass The Biscuits, the timeless story of one hungry kid's desperate attempt to snag some nourishment.

From my perspective, the definitive version is the one recorded by Andre Williams for the Fortune label in Detroit in 1958, the year after the original version, by author Gene Sullivan, landed in the Top Ten on Billboard's Country chart. Williams, a pioneer of R&B sleaze, is still out there hustling. His most recent album came out just last year and this month his first book, a semi-autobiographical tale of pimps, gangs, and drug running, was published by Kicks Books.- Beware of the Blog

Gene Sullivan  -  Please Pass The Biscuits  (2:52)  1957

Andre Williams  -  Pass The Biscuits Please  (3:19)  1958

Jimmy Dean  -  Please Pass The Biscuits  (2:57)  1962

Norval & Ivy  -  Please Pass The Biscuits  (2:56)  1967

And to wrap things, up we'll check in with an unforgettable live performance from the Collins Kids featuring a great vocal performance by young Larry. Tex Ritter provides the introduction and somehow manages to keep a straight face while he observes, "You show me a growing boy and I'll show you a biscuit eater." - Beware of the Blog

once again so there is no confusion: i swiped this directly from Beware of the Blog so I dont wanna hear no guff!!

Beatrice Warde

info copied from: typography online

Beatrice Warde (1900-69). American typographer, writer and scholar who spent much of her working life in England. Educated at Barnard College, Columbia, where she developed an interest in calligraphy and letterforms. From 1921-25 Beatrice worked as assistant librarian with the American Type Founders Company, pursuing her research into typefaces and the history of printing. In 1925, after marrying the type designer Frederic Warde, she moved to Europe, subsequently working for the Fleuron, then edited by Stanley Morison.

Her reputation was established by a 1926 article in the Fleuron, written under the pseudonym of 'Paul Beaujon', which traced types mistakenly attributed to Garamond back to Jean Jannon of Sedan. In 1927 she became editor of The Monotype Recorder, London.

Beatrice Warde was a believer in the power of the printed word to defend freedom, Warde wrote and designed the famous Monotype broadsheet This is a printing office (1932), using Eric Gill's Perpetua typeface. Rejected the avant-garde in typography as introspective, believing that classical typography proved a 'clearly polished window' through which ideas could be communicated. The Crystal Goblet: Sixteen Essays on Typography (1955) is an anthology of her writings.

The Crystal Goblet by:Beatrice Warde

Imagine that you have before you a flagon of wine. You may choose your own favorite vintage for this imaginary demonstration, so that it be a deep shimmering crimson in color. You have two goblets before you. One is of solid gold, wrought in the most exquisite patterns. The other is of crystal-clear glass, thin as a bubble, and as transparent. Pour and drink; and according to your choice of goblet, I shall know whether or not you are a connoisseur of wine.

For if you have no feelings about wine one way or the other, you will want the sensation of drinking the stuff out of a vessel that may have cost thousands of pounds; but if you are a member of that vanishing tribe, the amateurs of fine vintages, you will choose the crystal, because everything about it is calculated to reveal rather than to hide the beautiful thing which it was meant to contain.

Bear with me in this long-winded and fragrant metaphor; for you will find that almost all the virtues of the perfect wine-glass have a parallel in typography. There is the long, thin stem that obviates fingerprints on the bowl. Why? Because no cloud must come between your eyes and the fiery hearth of the liquid. Are not the margins on book pages similarly meant to obviate the necessity of fingering the type-pages? Again: The glass is colorless or at the most only faintly tinged in the bowl, because the connoisseur judges wine partly by its color and is impatient of anything that alters it.

There are a thousand mannerisms in typography that are as impudent and arbitrary as putting port in tumblers of red or green glass! When a goblet has a base that looks too small for security, it does not matter how cleverly it is weighted; you feel nervous lest it should tip over. There are ways of setting lines of type which may work well enough, and yet keep the reader subconsciously worried by the fear of "doubling" lines, reading three words as one, and so forth.

Printing demands a humility of mind, for the lack of which many of the fine arts are even now floundering in self-conscious and maudlin experiments. There is nothing simple or dull in achieving the transparent page. Vulgar ostentation is twice as easy as discipline. When you realise that ugly typography never effaces itself, you will be able to capture beauty as the wise men capture happiness by aiming at something else.

The "stunt typographer" learns the fickleness of rich men who hate to read. Not for them are long breaths held over serif and kern, they will not appreciate your splitting of hair-spaces. Nobody (save the other craftsmen) will appreciate half your skill. But you may spend endless years of happy experiment in devising that crystalline goblet which is worthy to hold the vintage of the human mind.

DLR, Reggae, and Dubstep

The past few months I have been thinking long and hard about how trite lame and commercial the dance scene has become. I know it became that longer ago than a few months but give me a break, I live in Kentucky! :)

I needed a place where I felt like the community still gave a damn about people other than themselves and where it actually felt like the people cared about music!

Here are some videos from parties all over the world that are pretty good examples of why the Dubstep and DLR(digital laptop reggae)communities are making all those massive bloghouse and basically american electronic music and deejays look like a complete waste of time.

If you dont care: good for you! But I hope you have something that excites you, as music as music does me!

This video is from a launch party for "The Outlook Festival" that is held in Croatia every year.

The next video is the artist Skream, live in Vancouver for the first time everrrrr...
(sorry for the lame commercial at the beginning :P)

This last one is really the only decent video I could find of a Jahtari party.

Now for some songs...
Mungo's Hi-Fi - Did You Really Know (feat. Soom T)

PupaJim - You Are Addict... Television Addict


Maffi and Hopeton Lindo - Rude Boy

WOAH!!!! and some trailers


This dude says this took him 1500 hours to make. I was like "Yeah Right!" and then I watched it! I believe him.

and some trailers...
here is the link to the new trailer for "Halloween 2" by Rob Zombie! Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie, Matt Bush,and yes....Weird Al' Yankovic!! This is awesome because its Halloween but lame because Youtube wont let anyone embed the video on their site!!

Most people know how I feel about the original Halloween movies but I didnt really have much to say about the first Rob Zombie remake. The jury is still out on that one but they arent making any quality original movies right now so, why not? I will definitely see it but you wont see me jumpin for joy or anything!!

Speaking of which...whose heard anything about this "Wolfman" remake? Why did Myspace have to tell me about it?
