From the latest updates…

I’m closing in on 4 years in NYC and have come a long way, dear readers. Remember when I begged you to see shows at 11pm on a Monday? Well, I currently have the pleasure of performing twice weekly - both incredible teams at normal, human hours. Don’t miss out:…

Go see Family Haircut! On Wednesdays that aren’t today, you get the added bonus of me as your DJ.

"Just be yourself, that’s really what it is. I mean I get it: black women are the strongest, most confident women in the world. Of course you want to emulate us. I get that. But at the same time, listeners will appreciate it more in the long run if you are just yourself. Eminem did it. He didn’t have to make a mockery of anyone. Beastie Boys did it. They didn’t have to make a mockery of anyone. If you want to treat it as an art form, then really treat it as an art form. Don’t use it as a gateway into a culture that you want to be a part of. Black culture is fun to the rest of the world and they all want to be a part of that, but there are certain things that are sacred to us and certain things that you will never be fully accepted into. That’s just my take on it."

"I want to be around people that do things. I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things."

This is definitely one of the things I love about NYC. Unless you’re very wealthy, you can’t coast here. No one lives here because it’s easy. Almost everyone I meet is here because they have some passion that makes all the hassles and hustling worth it.

We are a city of dreamers. And doers.

Mos Def // Mr. Nigga

[feat. Q-Tip]

You can laugh and criticize Michael Jackson if you wanna
Woody Allen molested and married his step-daughter
Same press kicking dirt on Michael’s name
Show Woody and Soon-Yi at the playoff game, holding hands
Sit back and just bug, think about that
Would he get that type of dap if his name was Woody Black?

I’d love to do this.


I’ve recently picked up a Corona Skyriter portable typewriter and plan to do this at some point this summer/fall. Holla if you’d be interested!

Another one of the all-time greats. Blaster Master, possibly Sunsoft’s greatest triumph. Eight diverse stages, each with their own theme and soundtrack. Amazingly, though the music is spectacular for this game, it’s actually overshadowed by the graphics and world exploration. This piece has always been my favorite, not only because the stage it’s attached to is one of the most impressive, but because it conveys the electromechanical mood of its parent stage so well without resorting to obvious musical tropes like the “zzt” of electrical currents. The most you get is a slightly metallicized voice through the square wave overlays. The overall melody isn’t as complex as you might expect a great piece of game music to be, but it’s proof positive that with the right construction, simplicity can win the day.

(Note: The art for this piece comes from the Japanese version of the game, Cho Wakusei Senki Metafight, since all art in the American version was just screenshots from the game.)

Music by Naoki Kodaka, by the by.
