Tons of great stuff headed my way. Sad I can hardly listen to it all let alone even post anymore! Anyway today I have decided to sacrifice my lunch hour to make a big post.

ITS TRICKY (MIGHTY MI - HOLLIS DISCO RE-WORK) - Run DMC x BEP x Tocadisco download | mp3 [...]
Their breakthrough album, Raising Hell trumped standing perceptions of commercial viability for hip-hop groups, achieving triple-platinum status and receiving critical attention from quarters that had previously ignored hip hop as a fad. Time Magazine, naming it #41 of the 100 best albums of the past fifty years, has stated that the album was "rap's first masterpiece".1. "Peter Piper" – 3:252. "
by Paul Abruzzo In the early 90s I rented a ludicrously small room in an apartment on Amsterdam Avenue near Columbia. I was drinking constantly, working as a waiter in a glorified diner in midtown, ensnared in self pity, remorse, and depression. I wrote bad, dark poems, and as I went to sleep I prayed into my pillow for the mercy of death to take me in the night. I was supposed to be writing a master’s thesis on the Antifederalists—people opposed to the ratification of the U.S. Constitution—but I hadn’t even started. Volumes of [...]
"Rap music is the only vital form of music introduced since punk rock." - Kurt Cobain J'aurais pas formulé ça comme Kurt mais oui, le rap est aussi puissant, important, enthousiasmant que le punk. Plus généralement, la culture hip-hop n'a aucune équivalent, elle embrasse des tas de disciplines. Le hip hop va bien plus loin que le rap, contrairement à ce que la plupart des gens continuent de croire, tout en ignorant l'un des mouvements culturels les plus importants de ces 30 dernières années. Le fait que les deux termes soient plus ou moins interchangeables y est [...]

Не могу не поделиться с вами тем, что услышал сегодня и что так подняло мне настроение. Darren Foreman (27 лет) так же известен, как Beardyman . Человек, извлекающий из своего рта все звуки на свете. Победитель чемпионата Англии по битбоксингу в 2006 и в 2007 годах, что уже рекорд. Он битбоксил у Grooverider, Shy FX, Killa Kela, Jazzy Jeff, Fatboy Slim и Andy C . Минимикс, который он записал для Annie Mac просто невероятен. Поначалу не верится, что он сделал этот микс только при помощи своего рта. Но придется, [...]

When the names Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr both appeared on the bill for the last night's Change Begins Within benefit at Radio City Music Hall - those who had plunked down money for the all-star bill that included Ben Harper, MMJ's Jim James, Eddie Vedder, Donovan and Sheryl Crow were hoping that the former band mates would share the stage together for a tune or two. While the stellar night seemed to included a number of musical highlights , it wasn't until almost the very end of the night during McCartney's hit-laden set that that moment that everyone [...]

In celebration of the Croc reopening, for some reason, I spent more time than I probably should have this morning thinking about my favorite songs about reptiles. Please note- "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John was a deliberate omission, both for being obvious and trite and for the fact that I hate that high pitched laaaaaaaa-lalalala. Ugh, it's like a drillbit in my ear canal. Yes, I'm sure this makes me a heathen and perhaps, dare I say, a "Cold Hearted Snake" (ooh, ah, ooh, ahhhhhh...)? read more
There are many signals that usher in the changing of the seasons (celestial equinoxes, changing sleeve lengths, authoritative groundhogs), but the big tell will always be the absence or presence of outdoor exercisers. Here at Paste , we can tell it's springtime, not from the pollen that covers Atlanta in a frustrating yellow layer, but rather the spandex-clad runners who fill the sidewalks and our side-view mirrors. Atlantan runners, joggers and walkers serve a dual purpose: They remind us that the chill is over and that it's never to late to start that New Year's resolution. Then again, they [...]
