BRILLIANT MOVE by The Jeep to branch out and guest feature on other tracks. not only do we get a mildly amusing hip hop ditty, but F Dot & Humma absolutely MURDER their verses, with Floss in particular addressing issues ppl have with Turquoise Jeep as a group, and also firmly asserting he is in fact NOT Charlie Murphy. the track is apparently an unfinished leak but is short n sweet enuf to be dope. KTJR!
the most recent smanger from the progressively-creative Turquoise Jeep camp is a bit of a family affair, one for the long-time fans who’ve been Keeping The Jeep Ridin’ since jump. the song is, of course, a fucking smash hit. the treat is however seeing the full TJ family on-screen for the first time in a while, marking the re-appearance of once-thought lost member, Slick Mahony. rumours kept running rife about Slick’s whereabouts or why he seemed to be absent from all recent Jeep videos (official & behind the scenes). but here he gloriously re-emerges in true Slick style, and joined by cameos from Whatchyamacallit, Pretty Raheem & Tummiscratch. on top of that we’re treated to undoubtedly one of THEE hawtest video chicks they’ve ever given us, and even more random sullen-looking males to add to the peripheral portion of the Turquoise Jeep universe. check out the inspiration for the song below via F Dot Floss.
and now peep the gloriousness that is WHY I GOTTA WAIT??.
as an added bonus, i’ve taken the liberty of creating my own photo gallery for the vid. as well as a meme-worthy shot of “Nate” that i hope does the rounds on the Internetz. enjoy.
BY SLICK MAHONY, THEY’VE DONE IT AGAIN. this song has been out for a minute, but finally Turquoise Jeep‘s own Pretty Raheem gets to shine in full multi-coloured suit music vid glory, bustin out them Guy/Aaron Hall dance moves (with a lil Kid N’ Play foot-smackin for good measure), complete with a requisite verse from founding father Flynt Flossy. ride that jeep all the way to T. Jeep Street and give it the fuck up for PRETTY.RA.HEEM.
WHO RUN THE WORRRLLLDDDD? TURQUOISE JEEP! co-TJ founder & human elastic-man Flynt Flossy, along with “Lemme Smang It” star Yung Humma, recently caught wind of Beyonce‘s latest music video “Run The World (Girls)”, mostly notabley Bey’s brief inclusion of the “Smang It” dance near the end of it (round the 4:36 mark onwards >>> http://youtu.be/VBmMU_iwe6U). i thought i was the only one who noticed when the vid came out, then a couple days later The Jeep made the following video addressing the subtle big-ups.
and here’s a short comparison vid someone made on YouTube.
and the hits just keep on comin! by now y’all know i champion the unstoppable force known as the Turquoise Jeep Records collective. and with the release of their debut album late last year, we are being rewarded with even more gloriously low-budget (but perfect-fitting) music vids. this time it’s Whatchyamacallit‘s turn to take the spotlight with a searing love ballad that takes the same principles of combining smashing and banging, but turns it up (and on) a notch by mixing “licky” with “sticky”. and i will leave it there to let your dirty dirty minds fill in the blanks (i think there’s an unintended sexual metaphor in there somewhere). and once again, it is of course a Tummiscratch beat (who makes a brief cameo near the end of the vid that borders on being god-like), and features Flynt Flossy with one of his most memorable verses yet. KTJR!
seems the Turquoise Jeep famalam have found another cool avenue to explore and expand The Jeep‘s ever-growing global fanbase. and i been saying on this here blog for a little while now, that the dancing abilities of the Jeep crew are slick as hell and part of the appeal. this aspect was taken to all-new highs by F. Dot Floss (yknow, the one who likes ladies & relations?) with the single/video Did I Mention I Like To Dance, where Flynt showed not only a propensity for comin up with catchy dance moves, but also amazing dexterity & natural talent. to that end, The Jeep are currently working on a full-length dance tutorial video which breaks down all the dances they’ve done in their vids so far. here’s a 3min mini tutorial from the man, the artist & co-founder of Turquoise Jeep Records: Flynt Flossy (baby).
new friend to the Confessions BLAUG, Squareone (and his rather dope Chi-City Blog), recently alerted me to the latest podcast of his own B-Side Radio program, which features none other than The Jeep’s founding fathers in a chill, informative & funny phone chat. wanna put a regular speaking voice to F Dot Floss & Whatchya? ur in luck. click below to download the mp3.
not only do the Turquoise Jeep camp know how to make classic tracks for u to sing along to, we now know for certain that pretty much all of em can bust a move somethin fierce! the beat is once again provided by Tummiscratch and it’s The Jeep at its most clubbiest (music-wise). HOWEVER, Flynt’s dancing prowess is the real star of this song and vid.
once my high-speed Internets kicks back in next week i’ma be practicing the moves in my bedroom, WORD BOND.
mo’ YouTube, mo BLAUGIN’. go forth and be entertained, y’all.

Ben Stiller‘s finest roles (imo) have always involved him rockin the handlebar ‘stache. this would be his finest in that mode.
NOW WE’RE FCKED
so not too long ago, a YouTube user with the name HighVoltageChrist came up with a video meme/fad vid that is quirky than the usual shit (think how viral the Antoine Dodson shit became, but on a smaller scale). anyways the basic premise is: use footage from the old Mario & Luigi cartoon show to shimmy the convo in a way that ends with one of the characters uttering an expletive. except the editing has to be precision in a way that makes someone SOUND like they’re saying “FUCK”, but in actuality is some jumbled up version that ranges from “FGLUP!” to “FWUACK!”. immediately after this comes a cut up clip of Luigi jauntily strolling singing the word “KOOP/COO” over and over to the melody of some random song (at the behest of the individual editor, there are many others). this one apparently is the original one that started this (sofar) underground YouTube fad/trend.
Nicolas Cage Losing His Shit
Nic Cage, i feel, is a somewhat misunderstood and slightly underrated actor, but definitely one of the best of our generation. and i think that’s the case cos it’s only when he chooses to play tweaked characters (some that are outright psychotic and possibly insane) when we see the depth of his talent. here, lovingly cut together, is a collection of just some of those special moments.
Dawson Leery – Asshole For Hire
i was a BIG Dawson’s Creek fan back when the show first started, and remained a loyal soldier throughout its entire 6-season run. yes everyone knows half the show’s appeal is the very epitome of cheese. however, the hook that differed this show from any kind of teen soap comparison were the characters themselves and how they communicated. long story short: they all talked like smartass psychology professors (and heavy on the sarcastic self-fladulation when it came to Pacey). i never, not once, while watching the show facepalmed or groaned at its lameness, cos it never really was. it was enjoyable, and should now be regarded as vintage television for ppl who grew up watching it. it’s got this nostalgic glow to it, is what i mean. but what happens when its star and namesake can’t shake being labeled as The Dawson? he goes on the offensive. this clip is but one of many that resulted when James Van Der Beek took over funnyordie.com for a week recently. another golden outcome from this takeover was: JamesVanDerMemes.com (if u love Der Beek you’d be a fool not to click).
SAD FORRR YOOOUUUUUU
i remember clicking onto random eps of Dragonball Z as a kid and witnessing those long extended-ass fights between Vegeta and Frieza, but it was all a bit too schizo for me to get into. i do, however, remember Vegeta‘s hectic-ass yelling and screaming of everything that comes out of his mouth.
Flynt Flossy & Whatchyamacallit – Not Your Professor, But Your Prosexxor (feat. Pretty Raheem)
as i had suspected, in a recent interview with Turquoise Jeep Records founder and artist Flynt Flossy (aka F Dot Floss), it was revealed that the earlier Jeep tracks were produced by fellow artist Whatchyamacallit. i call this the pre-Tummiscratch era. i only held that suspicion cos there was a notcieable increase in the recording quality of the vocals, the flow of the emcees and the overall production of the music. clearly Tummiscratch is the man with the magic touch, producing smangers like Slick Mahony‘s “Sex Syrup” & “Go Grab My Belt“, Flynt‘s “Cavities” (feat. Pretty Raheem & Watchyamacallit), Yung Humma‘s “Lemme Smang It” and a few other album-only cuts that aren’t on YouTube. but even Tummiscratchless, the Jeep does impress. this is an early rough cut of the song “Not Your Professor, But Your Prosexxor” which appears on the newly-released debut album “Keep The Jeep Ridin‘” in a more polished form. most, if not all the sounds i recognise as Fruity Loops/FL Studio presets, but it doesn’t matter cos the song is still smangin.
Kameron Corvet – Know These Things:Shouldn’t You
a decent acoustic cover of an underrated Maxwell song from his 2nd album “Embrya“.
Snuff Box – Boyfriend Scenes
yet another short-lived British sketch show that, judging from this clip, must be seen.
when i was but a child, one of my aunties fed me a styrofoam cup. haven’t seen her since.
Stella – “Bar”
probly one of the most surreal comedy troupes around (i think anything with Michael Ian Black is fantastish anywho). oh ye, the bar owner (aka the guy who can’t cum) is H. Jon Benjamin, currently voicing the title character in the animated hit “Archer“.
i wanna say “just when u think they couldn’t do it again”, but i had strong faith in Turquoise Jeep to deliver nothin but the HITS, boyeee. in celebration of this latest release, Slick‘s “Go Grab My Belt“, Turquoise Jeep Records have finally released their full length debut album available for purchase wherever you can find it on the internets. it includes such classics as “Lemme Smang It” (Yung Humma & Flynt Flossy), “Shuyamouf” (Flynt Flossy & Whatchyamacallit), “Cavities” (Flynt, Whatchyamacallit & Pretty Raheem) & Slick Mahony‘s eponymous debut single “Sex Syrup” (feat. Yung Humma), as well as a bunch of never-before-heard monster tracks in waiting. majority of the production is skillfully handled by DJ Tummiscratch (you know which songs are his depending on if he gets the obligatory “A TUMMISCRATCH BEAT” shout-out at the beginning of a song).
one thing i’ve come to admire a LOT about this clique (and it’s not just the pitch-perfect delivery of parody, satire AND catchy-ass songs) are the individual dances that come with the songs. Turquoise Jeep deliver the complete package, and i find myself listening to THEIR shit more than the contemporaries they’re artfully lampooning. if ur not already, i think it’s about time to jump on the wagon cos these dudes are about to blow THEE fuck up. like beyond just internet YouTube fame. i can feel it.
last week i was exposed to the utter genius that was Yung Humma and “Lemme Smang It“, which featured Flynt Flossy, one of the most bizarre take-offs of a commercial rapper i’ve ever seen, yet his look and sound and everything doesn’t seem to be BASED on anyone lol. everytime i see him on my computer screen i am in awe. now i can add Pretty Raheem and Whatchyamacallit to the list of Turquoise Jeep artists who are kickin more ass and makin cooler songs than the big-name counterparts they’re parodying. now open up wiiiiide for mo cavities.
Chinese Folk Song (feat. The Asian Christopher Walken)
mind-bogglingly awesome. i’ve often held theories as to the nature of the song and the situation. clearly Asian Christopher Walken is the ‘mack’ in the scenario, and he’s gotta choose between these two bitches who won’t stop bugging him while he’s trynah do his thang on an open green field. don’tchya just hate when ppl gotta be all up in ur shit n fuckin up ur game like that?
still one funny-ass (and actually quite bizarre, if u stop and think about the craziness of the character himself) moofie, made all the more hilario by the short inclusion of Ace’s landlord, “Mr. Shickadance“. his forced double-cough is what gets me the most.
Is This The Cocksucker Residence?
underrated performance from a biting satire film by John Waters called “Serial Mom“, starring Kathleen Turner as a serial killing suburban housewife and mother. in this scene, she says some naughty words.
one of two clips i’ve selected from The IT Crowd, cos it’s a pisser of a show and it’s my blog so SHUT IT UP, CAMILLE!

a tender moment between Zed and his lover Laura from “Police Academy 3”.
Bernie Mac – Motherfucker
R.I.P. to the late great Bernie motherfuckin’ Mac. i recently watched Spike Lee’s The Original Kings Of Comedy doco/live show last night for the first time, and in between dying from laughter, i thought Bernie’s sign-off to the whole show: “…and i’m OUT motherfucker!” was fucking gold. his little thoughtful addition post-show was also pretty poignant now that he’s no longer around.
Yung Humma – Lemme Smang It (feat. Flynt Flossy)
i’ve recently been passing this particular video on to friends via Fayzebuuk, sofar all the fellas seem to love it, and all the ladies seem to think it’s the most disgusting thing in the world. i, on the other hand, think it’s the work of absolute genius. definitely on a Club Noir level.
What Mike Tyson Wants In A Woman
…other than himself, of course.
Arnold Schwarzenegger – Fuck You And Me
Rattrap – We’re All Gonna Die
the only Transformer in history to sound like a wise guy New Yorkian punk. his catchphrase is legendary as he uttered it on what was supposed to be a children’s show, but was in fact one awesome sci fi saga known as Beast Wars. all due props to Scott McNeil for voicing this classic character.
You Got Any Cigarettes?
regular? or menthol? *wink*
Hawaiian Shirt Day
YYYEEAAAAHHHHHHH. yknow the best thing about Office Space? the extras they used as the nameless silent co-workers all look so convincingly depressed and soul-crushed, it just adds more realism to the lame moment you just witnessed (which i’m sure goes on in a lot of places of employ, thankfully i was never subject to dress codes allocated to specifics days).
irrationally inspirational. my long-held opinion that you can make an acoustic cover out of any song out there and make it sound sincere n heartfelt kinda came to fruition.
Lady And The Tramp – The Siamese Cat Song
riiiight, and i thought i only dreamed this happened…tha FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!? i remember being utterly in love with the film as a child, but even back then…there was something slightly unhinged about this scene. rubbed me the wrong way. years later, however, it is required stoner viewing. oh, and it may be a little racist. just a skoche. a tad. a TOUCH.
