Dont Be The Next Contestant on that Lamebook Screen...

Posted on October 15, 2009 at 11:49am 0 Comments

There should be a Facebook Etiquette class before you’re allowed to log on. Matter fact, there should be a Social Networking Awareness class before being granted the privilege to interact with the rest of the world. But if that happened, Lamebook wouldn’t exist and I’d actually get more work done.

Lamebook, boys and girls, is where those of us that forget there is a line between our digital and real lives are tarred and feathered,… Continue

Top 5 Birthdays Ever (BLACKSTAR SHOW)

Posted on June 2, 2009 at 2:31pm 0 Comments

There was last years show with The Heist, and then there was 6th grade's Lazertron trip where I got the top score but this was definitely better. Before I started rapping Blackstar was the first album i really studied and memorized. Kofi put me on and i dubbed the CD (thats how long ago it was) with the tissue in the openings on the top of the tape and listened to it on the 12 & train on the way to Tech. 10 years later I finally get to see… Continue

hey, i just got your message! yes, i run the show case. my goal is to get bands to expose their music, w/o having to pay a venue thats really hot, to their fans or our fans. I'm a little tired of going to wack venues and listening to the same people over and over again. I want the venue to feature new artists that everyone loves.... somewhat like a series of concerts... feel me? i would love to hear some of your bands music live and shit. And i'm down if you are!
