In Need of NFL Action

The Gridiron

Note to all my ATL folk. I’m raising the middle finger to you all because of my jealousy towards your ability to watch football (American football aka REAL football that is) on both Saturdays and Sundays. Goddamn I wish I could just bullshit on a couch and watch some bone-crunching action all weekend. Oh well.…

Inna Ruminations Stylee

Jeb maak maak!

1. Dave Fuentes, bassist for Hepcat and The Aggrolites, passed away last week at the age of 36. Much love goes out to both L.A. crews. Live On. Live On. Live On. 2. Khun Ree’s girlfriend moved into the 1041 spot and is living in The One EK’s old room. Craziness indeed. Re-route those SLAM…

The Thailand Blotter Pt.6

Cat Burglar Chases Birds PHUKET: Being a keen rearer of songbirds, 34-year-old Chalong resident Warathep Udomsap would have been used to being woken up by the dawn chorus coming from the bird cages he kept at the back of his house. At dawn on May 28, however, he was awoken by some much less appealing…

Pavarotti vs. Opera Man

Pavarotti...No Like A Lotti

Luciano Pavarotti died last week. I know the man is important to music and all, but as well versed in music as I am, I don’t think I will ever listen to opera in my life. I just simply don’t find it all that impressive. I mean, honestly, I’d take Opera Man from SNL over…

13 Roses is Dead

The One Nero

Looks like 13 Roses completely fell apart. After checking their site upon hearing about Watson’s departure to Portland, Maine; it was discovered that Russ Abbott had left the premises as well to start a new shop in Decatur called Ink and Dagger Tattoo Parlour. Guess there was a disagreement among some people about the shops…

Best Dunks Ever

You didn’t think I’d go all the way through this post without talking about some hoops did you? Well, I was watching television the other day and there was a commercial that runs on ESPN here that shows highlights from last year’s NBA season and is chock full of nice plays, buzzer beaters and nasty…

Fittest of the Fittest

Creation Rebel

Winston Rodney aka Burning Spear possesses a voice so poignant that it can stop me dead in my tracks and enter the absolute depths of my soul. No wicked shall not enter dis a river The fittest of the fittest shall enter Who is the son of he from Bozrah With his garment dipped in…

The Thailand Blotter Pt.5

Everybody Does It! NAKHON SRI THAMMARAT: Feared rapist of women, domestic animals and fruit trees, “Banana Tree Aek”, from the “Fuck Anything That Moves…Or Doesn’t Move” post, was finally taken into custody by police on August 27. Aekarat Dapngen, 23, was wanted for the rape of several women and animals in Nakhon Sri Thammarat City’s…

None Shall Escape The Judgement

Earl Zero

The rockers sound dominated the Kingston soundclashes throughout the mid to late seventies and it came into its being from the voice of the one and only Johnny Clarke (above) with his absolutely brutal cut “None Shall Escape Judgement”. The tune was penned by Earl Zero (below) but during the mixdown, at the Striker Lee…

What’s Gonna Be Next For Me?

My Beloved IPA. I Miss You!

Finished working at the Phuket Gazette on Saturday the 15th. It’s moving on to the next endeavor, whatever & whenever & wherever that might be remains uncertain as I write this. In celebration of me leaving my job, I finally utilized the ghetto kitchen of mine to cook a somewhat mediocre penne pasta dish which…

Got a Fork?

I just want to mention that my work has a full kitchen with plates, cups, bowls, spoons and knives, but what is missing from the entire place? Forks. Not a damn fork to be found in the whole building. I’ve been eating my dragonfruit and watermelon with either a spoon or stabbing them with the…

Film Studies Where Have You Gone?

My Haven When I Lived In The ATL

I definitely miss my film studies from back home. Heaps and heaps of films from Dekalb County Public Library used to cross my eyes for years upon years upon years and the cost was a whopping zero dollars. Except for my late fees which amounted to about $50.00 over the course of a decade. Good…

Diamond Notes

The Iron Man

Diamond notes include the recent acquisition of Yellow Jacket Mark Teixeira and Octavio Dotel for the Braves. Absolutely stellar move by John Schuerholz. Looks like the streak of pennants is about to start again. The Red Sox acquired Eric Gagne and forever put to rest the questions over their bullpen philosphy. Gagne is money on…

Goo!

I’ve been saying the expression “Goo!” for quite sometime now and I’ve traced it back to likely coming from D-Bar, but I honestly have no idea where it originated from. I use it often and it never really dawned on me as to what it means or where it came from until someone asked me…

Forward Ever. Backward Never.

Sir Coxsone Downbeat

Nuff respect to Clement “Coxsone” Dodd. The Master of the Royal Society of Jazz, King of Soundsystems, and Founder of Studio One Records, 13 Brentford Road, Kingston, JA, West Indies. While he is obviously not singlehandedly responsible for the birth of Jamaican music in this World, his role was beyond pivotal in fostering the environment…

The Thailand Blotter Pt.4

Holy Rice…or Holy Shit That Hurt CHIANG MAI: With the craze for Jatukam Ramathep amulets still going strong, stories of miraculous survivals from shootings, stabbings, car crashes and other seemingly-dangerous events are a fixture in the Thai press at the moment. A recent case of supposed magical invulnerability involved a muay Thai instructor in Chiang…

Echo and More Echo and More Echo

12" Of Pleasure

I keep running into the word “echo”. Over the course of the past week, I have either read about or had conversations regarding the word on numerous occasions, so I figured I might as well spit out a top five. Never thought I’d compile a top five things related to the word “echo”, but here…

The Simpsons Movie Delayed…Damn!

Comic Book Guy

I was super siked to go check out The Simpsons Movie on July 27th, but I was super disappointed to find out that it never arrived in Thailand. What the fuck? Well, after a bit of research and forum after forum full of ‘what the fucks?’, it was discovered that the Thailand release date is…

Who is Clutchy Hopkins?

Clutchy Hopkins Is The Fucking Bombskillet!

Clutchy Hopkins is my shit right now!!! Started investigating this guy after his tapes were handed over to Ubiquity and I gotta say that the man lays down some of the fucking illest riddims ever. There is so much misinformation out there concerning his identity and when you get down to the nuts and bolts…

Ginormous: Official…Scrumptrelecent: Unofficial

‘Ginormous’ was added to Merriam-Webster’s 2007 dictionary. I’ve been using the word for years upon years and honestly have no idea where I originally picked it up. It’s a classic in my book, and finally some scholarly types agreed. I’ll continue voting for the addition of ‘scrumptrelecent’ for years to come. It is surely more…
