Th-Th-The Show


The homie Al Shipley wrote about the show at Suite last Thursday. Here's what he had to say:


"PenDragon recently released one of our favorite local mixtapes of the year so far, I Got Hits 4 Cheap, a mostly self-produced disc that strikes an unlikely balance between a contemporary hip-hop sound befitting his Jay-Z-esque flow and more offbeat, humorous touches--Cookie Monster samples, audio fan letters to Lisa Turtle from Saved by the Bell--and flirtations with dance music. When PenDragon was billed as a solo performer on Thursday, we were hoping to hear a good amount of material from the mixtape performed live. Instead, he ceded most of his stage time to other members of his crew, Team Arson, including rappers Street Heat, Jae Poet, HyDro, and R&B singer Nova. So PenDragon only ended up performing two songs, including the I Got Hits highlight "Never B4," while five other Team Arson artists each got one before the DJ informed them that their stage time was up.

While some of Drag's label mates had strong material, we couldn't help but be disappointed that he got rushed off the stage before doing all the songs he intended. And given that there were only four acts on Thursday, all of which played within the space of two hours, the club probably could've let PenDragon play a little longer. Perhaps next time he can book separate Team Arson and solo sets."

The Artist


I love art. Its one of the few things in life that give me joy. By being a lover of art I am also an artist. When I have the time I like to mix up some wild stuff.

Street King's


I saw Street King's last night with my brother (Mark Shotta). It was ill...it was some true things being said in the film. Forest Whittaker gave an excellent performance even though it was half based on Denzel's character in Training Day. The Charger was meannnnn! It's a good corrupt cop movie. Common is cool ass dude. He's good in movies playing characters that are the opposite of his actually demeanor. Check it out.

I Am Iron-Man...kinda


One of my a.k.a.'s used to be (maybe still is) War-Machine which is Iron-Man's homie James Rhodes....U don't wanna comic book trivia with me, believe it! So as you can clearly see I am kinda Iron-Man. When I heard they were making an Iron-Man movie I believe I crapped my pants alittle. Then they said Robert Downey Jr. was going be Tony Stark...i was confused and bewildered. Then I started seeing the previews for it and I crapped my pants alittle. Then they're were rumors that Ghostface has a cameo...man it keeps getting better. Then recently I see the date and realize that coming out in like 3 weeks. GREAT NEWS!! Comic book movies are very hit and miss but when done right they are beautiful. I.e. Batman, Batman Begins, Spider-Man, the old Super-Man (the 1st two), and the Fantastic Four films (yeah i said it). Daredevil made my sad inside....it had good intentions but it just wasn't executed well. X-Men movies kinda suck... none of them are really that good, but they aren't horrible either. And with more comic book movies on the horizon (Avengers, The Incredible Hulk, Captain Damn America (they better do that one right this time!!!), The Punisher (yes another one, they never get those right),and Wolverine) one can only hope, pray, and believe that your favorite comic books will get its shine on the silver screen.

Its Academic ...Or Not

Every Saturday I watch "It's Academic," its kinda my thing. So this week when I see the contestants there is one stand out team....Milford Mill. And although its horrible I said to myself "they are gonna come in last place." The other school was Western and another school that i never heard of. Watching this was a little painful. Milford Mill lost...bad! Like by 200 points bad. Noting that the "It's Academic" teams are made up of some of the smartest people in the school, it kinda shows how some kids in some schools are being taught as opposed to other schools.

Thats my Stapeler


You know that one chick at your job that always has a bad attitude. Take it easy on her, its hard being miserable all the time. She has a lot of cats to take care of and Twinkle Paws is sick. And fact is she hates when people tells her have a good weekend because she can't wait to come to work because that's the only time people talk to her. And maybe she's right...everything everybody else does IS wrong. Plus you know how elevators are, that "open door" button is tricky she was trying to hold it for you (so it seemed). So be easy on her life is against her ...its just her and her cats, and lil Twinkle Paws might not make it.

Taste the GOLD


Late last week my brother Mark Shotta put me onto Kellogg's Frosted Flakes GOLD. Its pretty damn tasty. As a licenced cereal connoisseur I can appreciate its strong flakes and caramel taste that you get when the honey melts in the milk. But like most things I like this item will probably be discontinued later today so get it while you can.

They're Goooooollllllllldddddddddd!

Emotionless


I hate when people LOL me, its the worst thing ever. Its one step closer to a robotic language of emotionless abbreviations. Laughter is one of the most beautiful things in this world, and its being dumbed down to a short hand phrase to indicate amusement. Without addressing the other short hand phrases that have been adopted in Internet and text messaging culture i.e. : OMG, WTF, BRB etc. They don't really bother me as much as LOL. I digress.
