Guilty Pleasures: I love my local bands

February 16, 2010 by


It’s 3am, I’m coming back from watching the third person—in a long line of doe-eyed teenagers—make a mockery of a keg stand (it can’t be called a proper keg stand with an imposed 9 second time limit), and I can’t help but fixate on how these kids are destroying the floors of this apartment by […]

The Carter (Lil Wayne Documentary) and other ways to waste your time

February 16, 2010 by


So the snow is back in Boston, you don’t want to go anywhere, but you keep on asking yourself, “what the Hell should I do with my life.” Well, if you are anything like me you’ll probably want to spend that time learning something about society, culture, or bitches. Sadly, neither of these videos do […]

MC Frontalot at Harpers Ferry

February 2, 2010 by


Easy T usually manages updating the “who is playing where” bit of the website, however when it comes to MC Frontalot (yeah, like Front-A-Lot), I’m pretty sure it’s up to me. If you haven’t heard of MC Frontalot, it’s not too surprising, since he has a very particular underground following, and even fewer of that […]

Hulu Twofer: Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme & New Flavors

January 31, 2010 by


Because two is always better than one, hulu released two more rap documentaries, Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme and New Flavors. While Freestyle’s content seems obvious from the name, New Flavors is about the rise and impact of Southern Rap—and here I thought all Southern Rap did was give us grills. ‘Freestyle: The Art of […]

No News Like Good News

January 12, 2010 by


So if you remember my post from that magical pre-Christmas time (a.k.a. Hell-Week), A Rage Filled Christmas, you may recall that I talked about Britain’s X-Factor. It’s basically a clone of American Idol, right down to the three judges (a better statement would be a clone of Pop Idol, the show which American Idol was based […]

Steal This Film

January 4, 2010 by


In my never-ending battle to highlight copyright issues, I found that Hulu is currently playing Steal This Movie. You should watch it. Video description: Steal This Film takes account of the prominent players in the Swedish piracy (copyright infringement) culture: The Pirate Bay, Piratbyrån (Piracy Bureau), and The Pirate Party. more about “Hulu – Steal […]

A Rage filled Christmas!

December 22, 2009 by


Sorry Simon Cowell, X-Factor winner Joe McElderry, and all you mindless UK American-Idol based program, X-Factor drones—the people have spoken and they are tired of manufactured reality tv celebrities. The voice of their outrage, Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing in the Name”, which is only fitting. Their battle grounds, the coveted top spot on Brittan’s […]

HQ’s Hotties of 2009

December 21, 2009 by


So every year I like to take a retrospective moment and think about all the women over the last year from film, music, the arts, etc, and appreciate what they have done…to my nether regions. Is it crass? Totally. Does it make me a terrible person? Yeah probably. If I published it in a magazine, […]

Plainclothes cops hate snow…almost as much as CNN hates saying African-American

December 20, 2009 by


DC was hit by a ton of snow inspiring a flashmob snowball fight which caught cars in the crossfire. Apparently plainclothes officers really don’t like snow. Also. listen how they really don’t want to say he was the black guy when trying to figure out which one was the officer. more about “Plainclothes cops hate […]

And A Miley Song Was On

December 17, 2009 by


Years ago whenever I wanted to piss off my roommate I would tune into the Disney Channel and crank the volume to just below the point where the neighbors would get upset. The living room shared a door with his room so even when he wasn’t watching tv, he was most definitely hearing it. He […]

Tiger Woods Voicemail Remix

December 5, 2009 by


I’m not at all following this story, but I doubt anyone who has internet connectivity needs to be brought up to speed. So I really don’t care about Tiger Woods, his totaled Cacadillac Eslade, how he may have been beaten up by a girl, or his multiple extramarital affairs with what could be mistaken for […]


December 4, 2009 by


Oct. 24, 2009, RZA appeared on All Things Considered. Dec. 4 10:46am , 2009, Easy T sends me the link to the transcript. Dec. 4 10:50am, 2009, I find the audio clip instead (does that mean I hate to read?). Skip ahead to a little past minute 13 (or min 26 if it goes the […]
