When I sat down to recount my year, I hadn’t even really registered what I got to see. All my friends moved away. I pretty was miserable.
I spent the majority of the year hanging out by myself.
But now looking back, I was really fortunate this year.
I got to see the Black Keys spread love and become one of the biggest rock bands in America. RJD2 played our 7 Year Anniversary. Jay Electronica came to town and did a really intimate show then got signed 7-8 months later by Jay-z to Roc Nation. I solicited Wavves’ opinion on Psychedelic Horseshit. I witnessed what Dame Dash’s guy, Currensy ,was doing the night Jay Electronica signed with Jay-z. I talked to Bone after a nationally publicized arrest. Well, read away if you want.
1.The Black Keys Lifestyles Community Center August 13th
The image source of this tattoo is from the cover of Chulahoma, an ep by the Black Keys. It is on the body of a female that had a family member die of cancer. The finger pointing it out belongs to Mary Stormer, Key’s drummer Patrick Carney’s mother. Mary Stormer’s son and Patrick’s brother, Michael created the image that is tattooed on this girl. The girl got this tattoo because Chulahoma was what got her through hard times.
The tribute to Junior Kimbrough IS a blues record.
Mary Stormer, and I explained to the girl that the band would really appreciate this. Mrs. Stormer told me to take a picture and send it to Michael. The band was onstage so they couldn’t give the girl a hug. Continue reading

MP3:the Unholy Two-White Devil
MP3:the Unholy Two-Sullivan Killed Benoit
Say White Devil. I don’t trust you. I may have been speaking a bit blanket last week when I told Waka Flocka Flame that he was the last punk rock artist standing, Especially flawed when I live in Columbus Ohio, home of Vile Gash and Columbus Discount Records, (ie 2010 I’m still fucking with Necropolis)
I apologize but what do you do when Waka Flocka Flame is yelling at you?
In all short-sided, blatant negative hubris and a half-truths, Columbus Discount Records’ the UNHOLY TWO are actually the last Caucasian American Punk Rock band standing. I’ve seen Martin Weedsteeler declare to the heavens that only Adam Smith and Chris Lutsko are real. And Martin Weedsteeler usually only believes in the complete expliotation and disdain of music.
No, but Unholy Two doesn’t just have the cosignture of total shit maniacs. Adam Smith produced the upcoming Times New Viking album…… which even you most die-hard, it doesn’t exist if it didn’t happen at an open mic or a local’s only festival, loving your CITY to the point of not knowing or giving a fuck who MIke Repp or Jim Shepard is ……..must admit that you have seen the Times New Viking on the website you go to read about music on. And frontman Chris Lutsko is actually the only member of the Unholy Two because he no one wants to fully stand for his words but him.
Well, all half-baked hyperbole aside. Don’t take my word for it. Go see one of Unholy Two’s $$KUM OF THE EARTH release parties. November 6th at Skylab or one of their three New York shows. Or find their Nationally distributed record on shelves in finer record stores everywhere shortly there after.
When you move, at” the cool bars”, people will ask you if you have heard of or know this band.

And yes this is really stupid. T

I did this interview with Waka Flocka Flame over a month ago. This is before his album Flockavelli dropped. I had seen Waka live so in the interview when Waka says I am gonna have to take a break by track 4, that is not even a lie.
The energy at Waka’s shows are delivered on Flockaveli.
If you are at CMJ I hope you RSVPd to Waka Flocka Flame at the Fadar Fort Saturday 10/23 in on 38 Delancy St, at Forsyth at 9:05 pm. Royal Bangs, Glasser, and Freddie Gibbs are playing there as well.
If i was in NYC I’d go to that and then Get Right NYC at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn
Publicist:Wes, are you ready to talk to Waka?
WAKA FLOCKA FLAME:I GO HARD IN THE MUTHAFUCKIN PAINT, N###A.
Me:uh…HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE THE HARDEST OUT?
Waka Flocka Flame:Oh. We just tryin’ to drop this album.
Me:No one who listened to punk fucks doesn’t fuck with punk anymore more. They all listen to Waka.
Waka Flocka Flame:For real?
Me:Yeah. You fuck with metal or punk? All these rock people they are grown people cryin into their instruments. They sound like they listen to their parents music. All the punk kids I know stopped listening to rock music and they all listen to death metal and Waka Flocka Flame.
Waka Flocka Flame:I am from Atlanta. So I’m just trying to keep it krunk. That is where it comes from.

A few years ago I dressed up like Jim Jones for Halloween. I had to borrow 1000 dollar prada glasses from Martin Weedsteeler to complete my outfit.
Well, this year I have the option of dressing either like The Black Keys or Waka Flocka Flame at a fraction of the price.

MP3:Party Boys-Flex(Remix ft T-Pain & Waka Flocka Flame)
Dallas’s Party Boys add T-Pain and So Ice Entertainment’s Waka Flocka Flame, to hit-em with that “Flex”. I may try to make this my theme song if I’m drunk enough at Get Right and they play it.
