Check out this video of Beck playing “Clap Hands” on the Sarah Kuttner Show in Paris. It’s a great video, and cool sound, but one of the best parts about it is that Matt Mahaffey was on this tour as a drummer in Beck’s band, so he’s in this video. He’s the guy hitting things on table to create a musical beat. This and other videos are availlable on Stewoo.net.
Matt Mahafey is the center of Self, one of my fave rock groups from Murfreesboro. Huge inspiration to me personally. Someday their new album will get released.

The sign in the register line at Ritual Roasters is quintessentially San Franciscan.
After I assured him I would not post this pic in a blog, the barista showed me a cool ass blog gang sign (based on the “blood” gang sign):
Which reminds me of the Wiki hand sign (I love that it takes two people to make it, and it also reflects some of the anger or imaturity you may see on a wiki from time to time):
Whatever, special issue over, only 51 more weeks till the next issue, better reserve your space now!
Tonight I’m going to see Art School Confidential with Sha-nanin at 7pm. I guess I’m going to dry a diet for the next month, apparently I can’t go wrong with chinese noodles, so… yeah. Oh speaking of Art School, Art School Sluts pretty much sucked, but Neu Wave Hookers is very very good. Three thumbs up if you know what I’m saying, and I’m sure that you do.
I just wanted to post this song I did today. It’s wack. Very very wack, but what else would you expect from a hip hop song with mouth harp?
This song is part of a nerdcore all star team type thingy for the upcoming Nerdcore Hip Hop compilation coming out next month. I’m still working on my “new instrumental” thing. I had fun with the verse beat ’cause I pretty much never sample anyone, but I heard a lot of stolen samples in other folks songs so I thought I’d full this one with ’em. Can anyone recognize who the opening sample is?
Well, I was just gonna post that one song, but once my fingers start moving it’s impossible to stop. I am very excited about this upcoming compilation, I’ll have one all original new instrumental, plus my Scream Club remix, plus a verse in the posse (unless they don’t like that verse I posted), plus I made the beat to Beefy’s newest song “Tub of Tabasco“. I got to sneak another dope sample after the second verse, once again I challenge anyone to recognize who’s voice that is.
Alright, word to ya’ll. Nerdcore Represent.
ps, be sure to see Frontalot on tour if he’s in your hood.
