In Need of NFL Action

Date September 30, 2007

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. […]

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 […]

At dawn on May 28, however, he was awoken by some much less appealing […]

Pavarotti vs. Opera Man

Date September 28, 2007

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 […]

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.

It’s Not 7-11, It’s “7″

Date September 26, 2007

By the way, people here call 7-11…….”7″. As if the real name of the shop isn’t short enough. It even rhymes making it flow faster when speaking. Hilarious.

Best Dunks Ever

Date September 22, 2007

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

Date September 21, 2007

None Shall Escape The Judgement

Date September 21, 2007

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 […]

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.

Got a Fork?

Date September 20, 2007
