Whuttup Wednesday!


Aiyoooo!  Whate whate gwan bredren, tis a wonderful day to be alive…no?  I have been embroiled with working the last few days so it’s the first time I have had to post this week…and maannnn is it a doozy.  We got a Recycle from the omni-present homie Adam B and his column Pop Shots, a few videos of music I cannot get out of my head (unless it with a bullet), some exciting news for my radio show listeners and much, much more!  Sit back and kick it for a while, your boss won’t be pissed you didn’t get that TPS report in on time…you are sooo money right now, no worries.

Pop Shots: Break-Ups & Breakdowns

Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from R.Kelly’s bank telling him it’s over between him and his house, to J.Lo and Marc Anthony calling it quits, to Cheap Trick’s stage falling apart under inclement weather, and since it’s Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.  For full article visit Adam’s World Blog…

Wednesday Video Corner

Here are a few videos of songs i just cannot get out of my head these days…some new, some old, all DOPE.  Take look…

Nightmares on Wax – I Hear in Color

Really amazing track I just kinda stumbled upon in the depths of my digital library…

Charles Bradley (feat. Menahan Street Band) – Heart of Gold

The horns in this kick more ass than some type of ass kicking automaton…maybe a bit extreme, but that’s me.

2econd Class Citizen – Wishing Well

Kind of an awesome video of the man doing the damn thing on the MPD24.  Exclusively sampled from English folk records!  You like the product placement shot of his record?  Everyday I’m Hustlin’…

Nightmares on Wax – 70’s 80’s (RJD2 Remix)

Dope remix from RJ to an already dope track…basically it is me 70’s baby/80’s child so I had to throw it up (Whut Whut!) for my generation.

Mornings on WPKN: Data Romance Give Away!

Hiyoooo!!!  Another great call in contest will be going down next week on my FM radio show (Tuesdays 6-9am, WPKN 89.5fm) following the 8:30am interview with the fantastic new group Data Romance.  I will have 3-4 copies of their debut EP  to give away after the interview so have your speed dial set.  If you are unfamiliar with Data Romance, allow me to drop some knowledge on you…

Holler!

Cartoons are Hip Too…

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 10 or so years (which if you have that’s pretty damn amazing, keep doing you homie!) you must have had contact with the line-up of the premier in cartoon hilarity for adults…ADULT SWIM.  I don’t even have TV and I know about it, and the reason being that they have done a really excellent job of knowing their market (18-35, educated, most likely smoke weed or have in the past), positioning (Time of Day block is scheduled), sponsorships (The Swim Series of albums) and having one hilarious product across the board.  Look at their show line-ups (ATHF, Sealab 2021, Venture Bros, Harvey Birdman and these are just off the top.  Remember I don’t have TV…), not a wack one in the bunch.  All episodes are either 15 min commercial free or 30min with min interruption and choc-a-bloc full of great adult humor portrayed by animation. The Simpsons really were the front runner in this so credit due, but Adult Swim has made it almost a faux pax to not be up on what’s good with new Adult Swim shows.  Where did this all come from???  I recently was introduced to the Venture Bros (have always been a ATHF fan, just check my fav scratch samples) and was really struck by how very…adult the humor in this cartoon really was.  Which is amazing to really take the idea that many comics/graphic novels have been doing in a niche sense for years and taking it big time; it is ok and even cool in fact to watch cartoons as an adult…come on in, the water is fine.  Don’t take my word for it, peep this and with that I am out.

What would be a Venture Bros post without Brock Samson…
