U Can Dance If U Want 2…

My theme song for any party, Moodymann sampling the hell outta Prince's "All The Critics Love You In New York" into a non-stop funk masterpiece...

"Black Is The New White" – Paul Mooney

June 23rd, 2011 No comments
When it comes to African American comedians, most will think of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, or even now Dave Chappelle... But there is also Paul Mooney, who during the 70's until now was the driving force behind the aforementioned comedic greats, always writing for them or as an opening act. Don't get it twisted though, Paul Mooney doesn't mind being in the background, to put lightly in his own words, he's just "too black for Hollywood".

This book is much to do with his rise with Richard Pryor, his best friend, and is a great read for anyone who loves comedians who speak the truth. Remember Negrodamus on the Chappelle Show? Remember Homie The Clown on In Living Color? Remember RICHARD PRYOR?

All Paul Mooney...

LBS :: Barely Audible Vol. 1 (2002)

June 16th, 2011 No comments

I just finished listening to this mix for the first time in about 8 years...and all I can say is: WOW!  This is a hidden gem of a mix by LBS that may not be as famous as some of his others but is just as great.  It is a non-stop ride though, as LBS puts it, "the deeper side of house music... moody, hypnotic, and easy on the ears."

Needless to say, I'm reposting this because it deserves more press.

"When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography Of Led Zeppelin "

June 13th, 2011 No comments
Hands down my most favorite rock group of all time. Forget The Stones, forget The Beatles... nothing says hedonistic creative inspiration like Led Zeppelin. This 500-page biography recounts their separate beginnings, their once in a lifetime chance meeting, and every album broken down in detail from what was going on in their lives, and the formation of the tracks included...

This is some serious Led Zep nerd shit. It's a story of their rise and eventual fall from heaven, directly told from the members themselves and the assistants and friends who surrounded this juggernaut through it all. I have to admit, you always hear the stories of 70's rock bands and their drug induced craziness but to read the stories is a true eye opener on what was the "norm" back then. You also find out just how much artists "borrow" from older artists, makes Elvis look like a saint at times... Timeline runs all the way through Bonzo's unfortunate death and the many attempted tries at a reunion tour until their 2008 farewell concert... Load up your iPod and press play cause there is only one way to read this...
