New Mixtape : Jae Poet - FreeFaller

Jae Poet's new mixtape is out NOW and here is the description that sets the tone for the album.  

Description: Baltimore artist, Jae Poet (T.A.G.M.G.), makes London the setting for this mixed genre album. The sound he describes as "Beautiful Destruction" fits with the beautiful yet airy architecture of this setting. It is from the top floor of a hotel, that Jae Poet speaks of and elaborates on his interesting perspective on growth. This entire project was mixed, mastered, and arranged entirely by Jae Poet himself. He also uses mostly his own production on FreeFaller, being accompanied by very talented producers within his own circle. (i.e. Mark Shotta, Drag, Keishh, D. Bennett, and Ze. As far as features go, Jae still didn't have to go far to get an awesome cast like Jase, Rickie Jacobs, Nova Starz, DJ Craigo Gettems, Drag, Kay Lewis, and Jocelyn Smith. This 60 minutes goes from raw hip hop to wherever his imagination lands. Enjoy.

Baltimore Come Here Lemme Talk to You

Listen I know that the Inner Harbor is our "big" attraction here in Charm City.  But let's talk about the not so Charming shall we?  Let's talk about all the boarded, condemned housing unit in the city.  We spend a ridiculous amount of money for new Harbor attractions and this new 8 year "clean water revitalization" for the Harbor, but when it comes to the inner CITY nothing gets done.  In fact even the attractions outside of the Harbor are being halted.  The BioPark in Sowebo (South West Baltimore) hasn't seen any new construction for about 2 years.  The controversial planning for the new State Center has been under way for about 3 years and will probably be years if and when it ever does get funding.  The off putting thing is, the city has money for the Baltimore Grand Prix in which it was even said that they actually lose money by having the race here.  Every pothole and crumbled curb from Fells Point to Penn Station is fixed instantly, but when it comes to areas outside of tourist's view, things are abandoned. 

The city swindles people in an out of hand water bill scam and the police are seemingly everywhere but where crime happens.  The city has plenty of money to put up Blue Light cameras while schools close and after school programs are shut down.  The priorities of this city are sad and apparent.  Funds are misappropriated and visitors are treated better than everyday Baltimorians.  Someone needs to fix this.  Maybe it's you.

Currently Infactuated....

Adidas Socks!

During this years NCAA Tournament the Baylor Bears had thee most stand out uniforms. I am a socks freak! I copped highlighter yellow pair and they are very comfortable. Get em here.

Screen Printing your own shirts

After watching a youtube video last week, I've decided that screen printing (one color) isn't that difficult. The most expensive thing seems to be the lightbox you would need to expose the emulsion on the screen, the cheapest I've seen is $300. Seems interesting!


Act Of Valor

Ok see the thing about this film is, the action is great and it's an action movie. The acting though is pretty bad. The military men in this movie aren't actors they are real Navy Seals. The messed up part is some of the Navy men in the movie are better actors then others so it really points out the bad acting. If they were all in the same "can't act for shit" bucket then it wouldn't be so bad. But this is an action movie and unlike any other because they are using real ammo! LIVE ROUNDS! How?? I don't know! Why?! I haven't any damn clue! Seems dangerous as hell and kinda pointless seeing as how most films look good ammo - gun - killing wise these days. But the real kicker for this film is that it was shot entirely on a DSLR camera. That is pretty impressive to shoot a major film release with a camera costing less than $10,000.

The movie in a whole. Not bad at all really. Besides the crap-tastic acting from the non-actors it was an entertaining film. Things blew up, fun was had, tears, death...BOOM!
