apologies


Greetings Peoples! Sorry for the blog neglection. I feel bad especially since DaRuffian and Boney James view this blog as our baby, at this point BCW would come snatch this joint away from us! Anyway back to business with a lil bit of blog nourishment to kill those thoughts that the kids fell off so soon. The other day, my man Doc Hibbert put me on to this ill site called Ultragraphik. Now this just isn't any music blog, this joint is dedicated to the cratediggers of the world. So the next time you set out to record shop, check these kids out to add to your wishlist.

KRS One, And The Spook By The Door


It suddenly donned on me a couple of minutes ago, that pretty soon Black History month will coming to its yearly demise. All you have to do is blink and this month comes and goes like a basehead in a 'caine spot. By me being a black man with a voice, Daruffian felt the need to play his part and offer some commentary.
Now, I'm not going to beat you in the head with Black Historty facts that we all have learned ever since that first tear-full experience (for some of you!) when your parents left you in that mysterious place known as grade school for the first time. Once you got apapted to this place, you begin to realize a sudden change during the month of February. Changes like maybe your teacher opted to rock a Dasheki and Kufi instead of the traditional grade school garb. Or the traditional school snack may have changed from cookies, to slices of bean pie. No? You started to learn about important negroes such as Martin Luther King and Harriet Tubman. If you were real lucky, you were educated about cats like Garrett Morgan, inventor of the traffic light, Eli Witney who invented the cotton gin and Madame CJ Walker, Queen of the hair product game who was gettin cake way before Oprah and became the first black female millionaire in the Home of The Free. I however, recieved my lessons from a much deeper source. During grade school I also studied teachings from the black historian more known in hip-hop circles rather than Mcgraw-Hill.
The BlastMaster KRS One taught me about all these cats on the classic unofficial black history cut "You Must Learn" from Ghetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop. Over the years, all of the the shit they teach you in school becomes redundat to where basically its roughly 50 great negroes(maybe) who made significant contributions to American society according to this country's educational system. The things not mentioned are those induviduals, books or films who convey radical views. Encouragment for upliftment is usually always viewed as radical in the eyes on The Man. I finally got the chance to watch this movie last night which I had heard about for years, called The Spook Who sat By The Door written by this cat named Sam Greenlee, who also wrote the book by the same title which came out first.
Because I dont want to do the Siskel and Ebert thing to save everybody time and still drop a jewel, just go rent the damn thing! I can't quite understand why the hell this movie is labeled as a blaxploitation flick because its far from Supa Fly and The Mack. Herbie Hancock also did the soundtrack making this joint that much more enjoyable, adding to the appeal. Shout outs to Kim's Video for being a real movie rental joint and actually having a copy and Anika for putting up the rental fee!

Reading Is Fundamental!


So just to give you an idea of what type of quirky and bizzare shit that will be covered on this here blog, I wanted to offer some reading material to help out with all the shit reading supposedly does in making you a well rounded individual, so they say. That's the beauty of the internet kid. On one hand its the ultimate exercise in Free Speech. On the other hand,you can find all sorts of material and websites that can get your ass under watch by the alphabet boys, you know CIA, FBI well you get the picture. I guess that kinda cancels out the whole freedom of speech thing ?
Our first book is one I saw awile back on some fucking program on T.V. Hit Man: A Technical Manual For Independent Contractors by Rex Feral .Turns out Rex wrote another book titled How To Rip Off A Drug Dealer. The next title is strictly one of survival I guess you could say. Prison Killing Techniques by Ralf Omar Dean Anyway, i just wanted to put these joints out there. If any body has read these joints please comment on them. All reading suggestions on here won't get you red flagged, just some! Peace!

madlads and misfits


The MadLads: I Want a Girl:









The Mad Lads are probably my favorite vocal group of all time.


The Misfits: We Are 138:









rumors surrounding the origin of whatever '138' means:
• it's a police code for homicide, rape, or grave robbing.
• the lyrics are inspired by George Lucas' first film, THX 1138.
• 138 is the highest The Misfits had come on "the charts" at the time.
• it's about sex (69 x 2 = 138)
• it's a secret code that the songwriter, Glenn Danzig, used as a child.
• it means nothing.
• 138 was a number displayed by a wind-up robot toy.
• the band decided 1:38 was a time to kill.
Danzig has commented on the different explanations that his former bandmates have offered publicly about the song: "They didn't write it and they don't know what the fuck its about. It's about violence."
