GENERIC 80s BAD GUY // GNRC80sBDGY VOL. 2

GNRC80sBDGYVOL2

so i managed to sneak in one moar mix before 2012 was all said n done, and it happens to be one of the sickest ones yet. i dont normally gas myself up like this unless i truly impress myself, so yknow, not shit-talkin here. VOL. 1 has racked up quite a bit of positive feedback and stats since i released it over 6 months ago. and now i bring yous VOL. 2. whilst 1 was mostly an upbeat affair, i chose to take a more meditative approach this time around, starting off slow, increasing in tempo, and then finishing slow as well. somehow it all works as a whole. please listen/dwnld/share the good vibes if you feel it to be worthy.

MERRY NEW OONTZ YEAR!

ALICIA KEYS + MAXWELL // FIRE WE MAKE

MAX+ALICIA

the one and only MAXWELL recently, for the first time in his 17yr career, has recorded his first proper collab with another artist: Alicia Keys for her new LP “Girl On Fire”. the result is a track called “Fire We Make”, a joint which sounded smooth enough for me to think that Max and HIS production team made the entire thing from top to bottom. not true. it was written and produced by Andrew “Pop” Wansel & Warren “Oak” Felder of The Knightwritaz, whose production credits have included some of the biggest names in recent pop history (as well some of the more cooler mainstream shit like Miguel‘s “Kaleidoscope Dream”). Max himself said that all he did was come in and lay down his vocals and then jet. the only criticism i would have of this hot jawn is that Alicia, while she may have excellent taste in music and for choosing Max in the first place, is heavily outmatched. her vocal shortcomings become pretty obvious when put side-to-side with Max’s crazy falsetto skills (even this late in the game, i’m hecka impressed M manages to pull it off). otherwise, this is the first A. Keys song i’ve ever played over and over and over.

SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKER! // 10 Coolest Things On YouTube (as of 19/01/2013)

SURPRISEMOTHERFUCKER

well well WELL. apparently it’s now 2013. but try convincing my brain that. or that i’m fast approaching 29yrs of age. or that life is a motherfucking BATTLEFIELD (actually im pretty convinced of the latter *shakes fist* fucking LIFE). right. so in anticipation of some major awesome blogging that is right around the bend, i wanted to kick off with a concept post i did when i first began this BLAUG in November of 2010: a top 10 of my fav YouTube vids in that current moment in time. since so much time has lapsed b/w the last one of these and NOW, i’m including the “as of” date, just to give an idea of the timeframe in which i discovered these vids, and also cos im a lazy fuck and im getting old and i only wanna remember the most recent date. yep. OKAY, on to the entertainment!

BANE OUTTAKES

a masterful display of immitation and mockery, completely dominated by the now infamous Bane Freestyle Rap segment, but has so many other memorable lil touches that the whole thing is just a big fat fucking win. also leaves me with the craving for cream cheese and frowny biscuits.

DAY JOB ORCHESTRA: STUFF WE FOUND IN THE BUSHES

DJO, still going strong. thank you latenite stoned random discoveries! also get a peek at the Roger Rap, which was separated as its own vid by popular demand.

OMAR…GUY’S LARGE INTERNATIONALLY

in a serendipitous display of pop culture awkwardly mashing with the underground, witness as “Saturday” by OMAR is played by ‘David’ in a season 5 ep of Beverly Hills 90210, whilst ‘Donna’ and that other skank look on disapprovingly.

LIKE A FUCKIN LIZARD ON ICE

Dexter recently concluded its 7th season with the long overdue appearance of Sgt. James Doakes (via flashbacks, but really ANY way of working him back into the story is welcome). Erik King delivers what is probably the line of the season, and a rather obvious but never-mentioned insight into the fact that, yes, Dex DOES have a weird glidey lizardy walk.

DMX – RUDOLPH THE REDNOSE REINDEER

FLESH OF MY FLESH! NOSE OF MYYY NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE.

DIE ANTWOORD – DJ HI-TEK RULEZ

……i have no witty caption for this…song. lol. other than its hilarious for its misleading title, and just the general ‘wtf’ factor.

R.A.E.D – ABOUT TIME

finally. the vid that proves, once and for all, that there IS a church in the wild, motherfuckers. stop hatin.

KOOT BIE – I WANNA FUCK YOU

i am told this is part of a clever German sketch show. damn thing is done so convincingly if it werent for the oversized ears, i woulda thought it was real.

BACKSTREET BOYS – QUIT PLAYIN GAMES WITH MY HEART (ACOUSTIC)

yet another example of my so-far never wrong maxim that “acoustic makes everything better”. you can take the most REVILED song in existence and transform it into an emotionally honest barebones acoustic rendition. not that i consider this song to be horrible by any stretch of the imagination, but acousticising it certainly does add some lovely 90s acoustic poprock charm to it that wasnt there before.

FUCK YOU!

as if we needed ANOTHER reason to worship at the altar of Teh Whedon, he was not only recently involved in writing and directing the 2nd highest grossing film of all time, he also helped bring into fruition what has fast become an underground cult CLASSIC, and one that is only LATELY getting its public due. almost everyone ive shown this film to has LOVED it. you know why? cos they’re fucking awesome.
