hawthorne heights wants you to save ROCK!

if you've had it up to here with the way our society and culture have put rock music on the backburner, read hawthorne heights's stirring

Tomorrow, our second album, “If Only You Were Lonely” will be in stores. We are reaching out to you because Hawthorne Heights can use your help. We need you, your friends and anyone else you know that likes ROCK music to buy our album tomorrow. The only reason we are able to be a band is because of your support. Without you we would not be able to do what we do.

You buying our album tomorrow has much greater meaning than simply supporting Hawthorne Heights. ROCK music needs your support. Our society and culture has put rock music on the backburner. If our album can debut at #1 all of us will have taken ROCK music back to the top of the charts where it belongs.

"the out crowd"

urb has an interesting article about .
For many queer rappers, regardless of mainstream aspirations, writing rhymes acts as a catharsis of sorts when dealing with issues of their own sexuality. Atlanta MC Aggracyst moved from Detroit after being outed, and was put on a constant diet of anti-depressants to combat paranoia and severe depression. "I had to find faith in something,” he says, “and music became my faith."

the richard davis trio

song for wounded knee is a very loose, sparse record. the richard davis trio is on bass, on drums, and on guitar. the bare arrangements with only 3 instruments really let you hear what each player is doing. these fellows get crazy tones out of their instruments. produced by . 1973. flying dutchman.

stallone and schwarzenegger action film - finally!

the hollywood grapevine is talking about an upcoming action film that finally gives us what we've been waiting for--. the working title is brutal deluxe, but no plot details are yet released. i hope it's not too late for this; the last shirtless pictures i saw of these guys were not very flattering.

jan hammer group

i'm a little suprised it's taken this long to, as believe would say, "drop the hammer". , best known for the theme to miami vice, had some pretty cool early records. his melodies album is full of funky jazz songs. there are some yucky, too-smooth fusion moments, but it's mostly a winner. has been sampled a bunch of times. hot drums and vocals by tony smith. 1977. nemperor records.

stephen tyler duet with ceo of intel

akin to watching a car wreck.


to be sure, is one of the lesser bands from in the late 80s and early 90s. they have tired drug references in some of their songs and a bit of a corny sound. still, i'll always have a soft spot for their single "take 5". it's a fun dancey rock number. extra cool points: it came out on in the UK. 1991. geffen.

mass-customized sneakers, coming soon

reports that custom "tailor printed" shoes will be premiering in april. the system works by taking a 3d laser scan of your feet, then using another laser system to rapidly build the shoe.
The tailored shoes are built layer by layer using a form of rapid 3D printing called selective laser sintering, in which a laser fuses together particles of a nylon-based material.
looks like professional athletes will have the first pass at these. let's push for them to take this technology a little north--i could really use a pair of custom fit nylon pants, like immediately.

"copy goes here" - entertaining short film

i stumbled across this short film randomly (it was linked off of an html color selection dashboard widget) and found myself engrossed, watching until the end. it's a real film, with decent acting and real production (not like the terrible "freddie vs. ghostbusters"). the story and narration are warm and charming. nice job, whoever you guys are. by coudal. about 11 minutes long.

new kingdom

has an that's worth reading. as for the music, they're a 90s hip-hop group with a punk rock vibe. the record covers have a great thrift store aesthetic. they were rockin' trucker hats in '93!!! loud samples from eclectic sources and a fun, drunk-sounding delivery. thank goodness we have their excellent website with posted. when they came out, it seemed like no one cared which is a damn shame. their second record, paradise don't come cheap barely even came out. i've only ever seen promo copies of it.

windsor for the derby

super broker shuffle

consider this a companion to dj ray liotta's super bowl shuffle post from a few days ago. makes the obvious observation that the '85 bears had a really great idea that should be expanded upon. you can just hear the creators of this video working: why not make a rap video with aging white southerners dedicated to pushing sales of household food items?

i'm not much of a football fan, but i do love football rap. so in honor of this weekend's superbizzle fun, i'mma post some of that classic shit -- "the superbowl shuffle" by the 1985 chicago bears. imho, the best things about this grammy-nominated (seriously!) song are gary fencik's "gay rapper" voice and the comedy club sax solos at 2:46 and 4:57. so jazzy! is it just me or does william "the refrigerator" perry actually have a decent flow? it's sorta gangstaish.

prince paul

has had a few solo records come out recently. in the last few months, a collection of previously unreleased tracks called hip-hop gold dust hit the shelves. my favorite solo prince paul record is psychoanalysis. it's a bunch of hilarious skits and weird songs centered around a freud-like analyst who digs into paul's psyche. the label released it. wordsound is a good place to go for strange, experimental, and funny hip-hop-related music. 1996.
