Head of Skate: Coming to a country near you?

Head of Skate: Coming to a country near you?

I’ve been tempted to post about Palin ever since she was picked. But I couldn’t muster up the effort… she’s just too depressing (What a fucking “spit in your eye” to Hillary). I guess I was waiting for this inevitable trailer:

Note: I didn’t have the time to resize the video, so just watch it in full screen.

In response to this.

Ugh…politricks. Do you think that the trailer would be (not “will be”… please) true to life?

PS: Too many scratched records though. Shoulda used a “wah-waah-waaaaaah” or something instead (does anyone know the official name for this classic sound effect?).

PPS: Once again, truth is stranger than fiction.

Update: Leave it to the internets to take a quote & photoshop the hell it.

Kinkless Mentalcase

I love Keanu in that flick

Yeah I tried Mental Case out and um… low blow but I think you’d have to be a “Mental Case” to seriously consider it for a storage medium. Despite what the newest Mac GTD wunderkind might say, its a little too clumsy for my tastes. It sure looks real pretty, but the entry interface is a little clunky for a simple flashcard setup. While the screen capture function is a nice touch, using it instead of copy/paste loses out on the semantic value of plain text. Sure its good for remembering a few facts or random people names, but I don’t think that the software is flexible enough for a student to use in place of flashcard memorization.

Some people in the comments suggested Studycard Studio and Mindburn. I’m skeptical, but I might give them a chance some day. Right now, I’m trying to avoid tinkering with too much mac software, and focus more on PSAI: Photoshop and (Adobe) Illustrator.

But just look at the chesire grin on the #990000 suitcase. As José would say: “It’s kind ovva kooky, kind ovva creepy!”.

What a crazy icon!

Hakken = Europe’s Weird Answer to the Hyphy Movement

Hakken = Europe’s Weird Answer to the Hyphy Movement

Speaking of which, I suppose this is the German version of the musical slap in the face that is “Totally Dude” (Sorry, I rep da 707 so I can’t diss my own ppl’s music):

“i seriously hope those kids are drugged out of their minds” ~Perdici0n

Called “Hakken“, it looks like Techno-Russian DDR to me. Really though, you have got to be kidding me. Pop. Lock. Drop it SEIZURE.

More after the jump.

The Radi, Radi-o. oh. T-T-Totally Sucks Dude. Drop it.

The Radi, Radi-o. oh. T-T-Totally Sucks Dude. Drop it.

So a few days back, Shannon answered a question that had kinda been on my mind during the last few weeks of spring quarter:

“What are they saying in that song!?”

Explosion as R&R devil horns

For those of you who don’t know, its “T T Totally Dude!”.
If you didn’t understand that, then chances are, you probably already know the hook—as well as the rest of the song by heart.

The explosion-as-devilhorns-sign and the very end made me get spit all over my aging Powerbook G4 (ooh shiny Macbook Pros). Then yesterday, Shannon told me about the newest song from the 1 2-Hit Wonder, Shop Boyz:

Bill & Ted + Totally Dude + lolcat =

Damn. Just had to rub it in huh? And you want us to pay you for this stuff music industry?! I don’t wanna sound all old-fogey-ish… music in general has never been better imo, but radio is a cesspool. With stuff like pandora, last.fm, and the hype machine, I won’t look back when the current business model collapses, despite the RIAA’s last gasps.

Anyway, sorry for the crap. I’ve been real bitter as of late at myself and my world in general, for having shit like this, “Pop Lock & Drop It” & “ella, ella, ey! ey! ey!” stuck in my head more than 1/2 the time I’m awake.

Here’s some real music:

John Mayer – Kid A (Radiohead Cover)

Though I was definitely part of the right college radio generation, I never got into the whole John Mayer (or SD’s response, Jason Mraz) thing. But Radiohead was “my band” back in the days of the FHP (FumeHood Posse)—which, btw, is way better than OBG (no comment)—and continued to be my “college band” throughout my UCSD days. Long story short: Kid A is my favoritist song ever (LIVE!!!), and Mayer does a nice acoustic of it.

I also picked up this gem from the del.icio.us mp3 page.

We Got Our Own Thing – J.V.C. F.O.R.C.E.
(via: The White Noise Revisited)

This one’s for Clockw0rk. Funky-house beats that you love, with the old-school rap rhymes that no one can deny… don’t sleep on that via: link though, as I go through it with Peel, I find a lotta gems (YA mp3 blog I gotta check up on).

PS: I’ve been listening to a lot of “The Eraser” recently… shoulda got it last Summer back in Switzerland. And Random Google Researchâ„¢ for the post: Remember this? I vaguely, vaguely do, but the game and cartoon are remembered more readily… Thanks Nintendo Power!
