Mayer Hawthorne Stole My Heart...

A white boy that sounds like Sam & Dave?
He's signed to Stones Throw?
From Detroit?
Plays a bajillion instruments?

Mayer Hawthorne

He's pretty damn good too.


Lil Dutch Maid Butter Cookies


My auntie used to eat these and Ginger Snaps [old people food] damn near EVERYDAY when I was a tike.
These are like the black folk Fortune Cookie.
Peep the sooth saying on each cookie:

You can't front on the classic butter cookie.
To all my white friends, you can only get these at you local Wayfield grocery store.
But if you happen to be in a Wayfield grocery store then you need to worry about more than buying these cookies.

Arlen Specter To Join The Wu-Tang Clan

My man Donnovan just put me on to this HILARIOUS post.
To find more funny isht from Bryan Doyle visit Jackson Free Press and click on Jack Blog

This afternoon Arlen Specter (R-Pennsylvania) announced he is joining the Wu-Tang Clan, a prominent, loosely organized group of hardcore rappers that first formed in the early '90s.
At a press conference with all 9 original members, including the RZA, GZA (pronounced "Rizza" and "Jizza") and Method Man, a visibly disoriented Specter read from a prepared statement:

"My life had got no better, same damn 'Lo sweater. Times is rough and tough like leather," said the senior senator of his 29-year membership with the GOP. "I figured out I went the wrong route. So I got with a sick tight clique and went all out."

After Spectar finished reading his statement, the members of the Wu took questions.

"We're just happy to have Mr. Specter on board," said Ghostface Killa, who because of the room's
low-lying cloud of smoke was barely visible. "When he contacted my office this morning, what else could I tell him but 'Welcome Aboard!"

"It's hard to argue with 29 years of Senate experience," said the ghost of Ol' Dirty Bastard. "In this economy, even a multi-platinum, grammy-nominated super group needs as much help as possible."

The press conference ended abruptly after Inspectah Deck lambasted the press corps for its overreporting of Somali pirates, Obama's new dog, and the Swine Flu "pandemic" in the middle of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

Children Of The Night

So as I was on the late night prowl for new talent, I came across this dope young trio.
They are Lansky, Versa and Remy Banks separately but collectively known as
Children Of The Night and they hail from Queens, NY.
Listening to their music and I get the feeling of early Little Brother, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth, and People's Indistinctive...Tribe.
Funny thing is I added them and didn't expect a response til the next day but within a few minutes Lansky hit me back with a message and told me he was digging my music.
Check these cats out, I really feel like they actually "get it" when it comes to artists of my generation.

-blctxt, bumpin that %100

Spoken Words Of The Fray

I heard this song at my job on one of our promo reels.
A promo reel is a DVD with music, video and commercials that the company wants to promote the entire month.
So rarely do I come across a dope song or movie.
One day I opened the store early enough to pay attention to the lyrics of this Fray song when the video came on.
The first line caught me and since then I can't help but marvel at the dopeness of the song.
I've been a Fray fan since 'How To Save A Life' was given to me by a co-worker but this song really hit me.

You Found Me

I found God on the corner of 1st and Amistad
Where the West was all but won
All alone, smoking his last cigarette
I said, "Where've you been?" He said, "Ask anything."

Where were you, when everything was falling apart.
All my days were spent by the telephone that never rang
And all I needed was a call that never came
To the corner of 1st and Amistad

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me.

But in the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who's ever known
Who I am, who I'm not and who I wanna to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
[ The Fray Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me.

The early morning, the city breaks
And I've been calling for years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
You never sent me no letters
You got some kind of nerve taking all I want

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, Where were you? Where were you?

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me.

Why'd you have to wait, to find me, to find me?

You Found Me - The Fray
