Hair brained world domination scheme no.138

I am in China, a land where people cannot grow facial hair at all.
I can grow a mean puberty stache and that's about all. The Chinese seem to really love gross facial hair. I believe I can be a king, or a god around here, if I try.

I will begin my quest and I'll start posting pictures of my disgusting progress.

Where The Wild Things Are - Trailer


Dating a girl with no ass is like wearing a pair of jeans with no pockets. There is no place to put your hands.

Also, she's likely ugly

Half Week Hardcore

First of all this week we'll pay tribute to Mastodon's newest album, Crack They Skye, that released yesterday. It's not hardcore but it fucking rips.

Since I've been doing a bit of writing about Canadian Hip Hop, here' some Canadian Hardcore for you.
Cancerbats - Deathsmarch

Comeback Kid - Wake The Dead

SNFU - Don't Have The Cow

Dayglo Abortions - Proud To Be A Canadian

Woe is me

They say everyone is good at something. I have been on the planet going on 27 years and I have been an utter failure at everything I've ever attempted. Now to make matters worse I can't even sleep very well.

Canadian Hip-Hop History: Part 2

The next song I can really remember from my very early days of watching Muchmusic is Dream Warriors' - My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style. This was never one of my favorites, but it was one of the first, so it gets a mention. Check the video here.

The next phase of my devoted hip hop listening was heavily influenced by Reggae and for a long time the only thing I wanted was to visit Jamaica, I was obsessed with the country for a few years.
Snow, when I was 10/11 years old that word meant a lot more to me than just the shitty white stuff that covers the ground for half the year. Informer had me hooked from the second I heard it. Before the video came out, muchmusic had Snow do the song live in a gondola going up some mountain. I'm pretty sure I taped that and wore out the vhs before I ever got my hands on the full album, which was also a tape. There were a bunch of songs on that tape that I loved: Lonely Monday Morning, Creative Child, Lady With the Red Dress but none got anywhere near as popular as Informer.

The next song was Raggadeath's - One Life. This song was actually very important in my musical evolution as it was one of the first times I was exposed to a heavier sound, which would get heavier and more brutal as I got older. I remember the video for the song featuring snowboarding and thats what initially got me interested in the song. I vividly remember asking my mom to buy the One Life cd for me, but as soon as she saw that the band name had "death" in it it was a no go. Could that be why I'm so into death metal now? This isn't the actual video, I couldn't find it, but check out the song anyways.

Classic Skate Video Parts: Lavar McBride - Trilogy

I'll always remember watching the video before going skateboarding for an entire day when I was on summer break in high school. I chose this part from Trilogy because when this video came out, lines were in, and Lavar had lines upon lines upon lines.

Canadian Hip-Hop History: Part 1

When I was young, like really young, I really loved "rap" music. Long before I got deep into punk then back into hip-hop then back into punk then deep into metal, I remember owning quite a few "rap" tapes. I say "rap" because when I was a kid, thats what I called it. A few days ago I was listening to some old stuff I listened to as a kid and I realized that a lot of my first era of "rap" was mainly Canadian. So here's my attempt to summarize hip-hop in Canada, according to me at least.

The first song that comes to mind that I can vividly remember listening to and trying to remember all the words to was Maestro Fresh Wes' "Let Your Backbone Slide". It came out in '89 and is still the best selling Canadian hip-hop single of all time.

Thanks to hiphopcanada's youtube channel for the video.

Sublime reunion.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Sublime, and in particular Bradley. So naturally the idea of a Sublime reunion seems very weird to me. I understand that there were 3 people involved in Sublime and it wasn't all Bradley. I also understand that fans would like to hear the songs live and even the possibility of a new album. But personally, I have to stand on the side that believes that this band should not be considered "Sublime". For the same reason that The Misfits should not have been called "The Misfits" once Danzig left. And for the same reason that there could never be another "Nirvana" without Cobain. I'll admit that the second incarnation of The Misfits is one of my favorite bands, and that this new Sublime singer is awesome and they sound great live. I just don't think that it's right. The other band members obviously have their owns thoughts and at the end of the day, they knew Bradley, something I could never say, and they would be the best judges of how he would interpret the new Sublime. I know if the ever tour and come near me, I'll be going, but it could never be the same.

Here's a link to a bunch of videos of their first live show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TgUhc627-I&feature=related

And a video of the new singer doing his rendition of T.I.'s "Whatever you like"
