SOTW (Wugazi - Sleep Rules Everything Around Me)

Song of the Week: Sleep Rules Everything Around Me (Fugazi & Wu-Tang Clan)

Hey sports fans. P-Wigz here filling in for JZ, who’s in the city of brotherly love, presumably loving brothers.

If you know me, you know I love a good mashup. I came dangerously close to posting “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse with Pharoahe Monch rapping over it, but decided that topic is about as predictable at A-dub’s untimely demise.

Instead, please enjoy the soothing sounds of Fugazi, accompanied by the sick-tight rhymes issuing forth from Raekwon the Chef, Method Man & Inspectah Deck of the Wu-Tang Center for Advanced Studies in Mathematics

This song has been smangin’ my earholes for a couple of weeks now. As a matter of fact, there’s whole album of Wugazi mashups assembled by two enterprising DJs that I’ve kept pretty heavy in the recent rotation.

I’ll note that the Fugazi component of S.R.E.A.M. is atypical of Fugazi. “Soothing” is not a type of sound they typically make (see, e.g., “Great Cop”). Their post-hardcore and subsequent art rock tunes would seem an unlikely compliment to the lyrical stylings of the brothers Wu. It totally works though, in a big way.

You can download the album, 13 Chambers, at the link posted above, where you can also feast your eyeballs on a Wugazi fan video comprised of clips from The Wire. Omar comin’!

Hope you dig,

Song of the Week (RWR - The Honey Badger Dubstep Remix)

You knew it was coming...

It's been lighting up the airwaves. It's topped the "Animal Documentary" Billboard charts for most of 2011. It's inspired a new dance craze. I give you: The Honey Badger (RWR Dubstep Remix).
Thanx for the remix stupid!

And the original:

For those of you who are new to the internet, the honey badger is a critically acclaimed animal documentary about the life and times of the honey badger. Once thought to be a German Art-haus drama, the honey badger follows the honey badger on his quest for...honey and cobra snakes. One of the more startling scenes occurs when the honey badger gets bitten by a venomous cobra snake. James Lipton called it: "the most tearful scene I've watched since I caught my wife smanging it with my dentist..." Not to worry Mr. Lipton, after a brief venom-nap, the honey badger comes to and is ready for more honey badgery.

Best times to listen to the H-Biz dubstep:
1) At a lakehouse circa 3am
2) At the zoo
3) In Africa
4) At a Silent Disco

Tonight marks the second emergence of the Silent Disco onto the Dallas scene. Undoubtedly, The Honey Badger (RWR Dubstep remix) will be in heavy rotation. So, if you haven't already done so, purchase your ticket (it's at the Green Elephant), dust off your slow-motion karate / badger moves and enjoy the silence.

Hope you Dig,

Song of the Week (Mr. Ghetto - Wal-Mart)

We goin' Wally Wally Wally Wally Wally Wally Wurld!

In this song, Messr. Ghetto espouses some of the fringe benefits of shopping at Wal-Mart.

"Man forget goin' to a club to meet some'n new, when I want me some'n new, I go get me a basket and I walk around Wal-Mart." Well said Mister Ghetto.

Clearly Mr. Ghetto is fed up with his prior dating rituals. He tried the club circuit. He tried He tried J-Date. No luv. Then an enterprising Mr. Ghetto asked some tough questions such as: Where do the ladies get their stretchy pantz? LIGHTBULB! Wally Wurld!

Indeed Messr. Ghetto, and they LOVE to shake it all up and down the Wal-Mart isles. Let there be no mistake, girls don't move like this at Target.

A few of my fave lines:
"She got the Louisiana Purchase!" (someone was paying attention in History class)
"She buyin' panteh panteh panteh panteh panteh panteh panteh panteh panteh panteh HOZE!" (I didn't realize how much I like panteh hoze until I heard this)

And the dubstep remix (I've heard better, but I'm trying to prove a theory that every new song has a dubstep remix):

Shout out to M. Turner for introducing me to the Bounce-tastic poetry of Mr. Ghetto.

Bday shout out to P. Bear. I'll see you at Wally Wally Wurld.

Song of the Week (Com Truise - Sundriped)

Prepare to ride the chill wavves. The smooth sounds of Com Truise wash over you like the most baller shower you have ever taken. Are you playing a video game?'s called life.

If programmers had employed Com Truise to develop video game soundtracks, maybe for Double Dragon or Zelda or something, I would have never left my house. Full disclosure, when Super Mario Bros. dropped, in the Zimmermann household, circa 1989, me and my sister didn't leave the house for 3 days. My parents finally made us go outside and play...which we did...begrudgingly...I was Bowzer.

I digress...I read somewhere that the U.S. Military used music as a weapon to induce Noriega to surrender in Panama. I've decided to employ this tactic in an upcoming battle I have at 6:30pm tonight with a cat named Sam. Through the use of extreme chill wave technology developed by Com Truise, I will lull Sam into a false sense of chillness. At this point, I will pick Sam up like a docile lamb and thrust him back into his garage/lair. Before he has a chance to retaliate, via bites, slaps to the face and lazers, the garage door will be closed and I will be riding the chill wavves all the way back to my crib. HaHa...charade you are Sam!

Hope you Dig,
