Sucka of the Week! Thanks a lot Lloyd Dobler(John Cusack)

It's because of you dudes thought serenading chicks outside their windows with Boomboxes and a Peter Gabriel song would get them some, but hey if they looked liked Ione Skye,(Remember cute girl with the lisp and a bangin body?) who wouldn't.
We still love you, ya Bitchass!

The Minority Report is upon us.

Gizmodo.com Reports Microsost is set to release an interactive touch table
Dubbed The"Surface" five years in the making, it's set to establish a paradigm of what Microsoft calls "surface computers" which use touch as the sole method of input.
Painting with surface sounds particularly intuitive (and fun): you can use a paint brush or simply dip your fingers into virtual paint cups. Photo resizing and stacking works much like the iPhone's zoom gestures. Also cool is the capacity for multiple users.Such sweet tech comes at a price, naturally, with the units running $10,000 a pop. But, Microsoft expects prices to plummet over the next three to five years to the point they'll be in your homes. In the meantime you'll be able to play with them at T-Mobile stores, Harrah's and Sheraton hotels.

Kanye's "You can't tell me nothing" Music Video

Kanye drops his video for "You can't tell me nothing"--- the first single from his 3rd album Graduation. The Hype Williams directed video borrows a lot from Madonna's Frozen directed by Wunderkind Chris Cunningham Hype why are you recycling shit and giving it back to the Hip-Hop community and what's up with the Lamborghini? Miss Ash what do you have to say?



"All My Friends(video)" was one my favorite songs off the Sound of Silver album.(mp3) The video took a different turn from what I envisioned but was a welcomed suprise.Oh yeah,Mr. Murphy i'm still Heated about what you said regarding Miles Davis in the Fader Article.


WTF is going on at Def Jam?(Another artist bites the dust.)

Lady Sovereign breaks down during a performance.
When Def Jam CEO Jay-Z signed a stable of new artists it showed promise that finally Hip-Hop's Mecca would no longer thrive on the fumes of past glory. After the whole Nas and Roots fiasco I thought Jay-Z was making amends. Shit!, the most promising release to come out of Def Jam Last year was Ghostface's Fishscales(mp3) and he got no support. Anyways back to Lady Sovereign, her performance at Studio B in Brooklyn made her seem like an escapee from the Def Jam Asylum. Instead of spitting on the mic she went into a rant about depression and bankruptcy. Damn Jigga what the fuck's going on over there? You're like Sylar in Heroes signing MC after MC, stealing their MC Powers and then burying them in the Depths of Def Jam. Jay, Hova, S.Carter wassup?
I think CAM's about to release another diss(mp3) record any day now, you're on some Galactus shit.

Whackass of the Week- Corny I mean Uffie

Ok, I will admit, I was a little excited when I saw that Discobelle (a mostly fabulous music blog), had posted some new tracks from Uffie. Afterall, “Pop the Glock” was kinda catchy in that talentless, uber -trendy, whitegirl rapping over cool beats sort of way. Though I’m no coroner, after listening to the two tracks (First Love.mp3) & (Brand New Car.mp3), I now pronounce Uffie’s “15 minutes”… officially over. ‘Nuff said.

Amanda Blank gained notoriety for her lightning quick mic skills on Spank Rock's 2006 banger "Bump mp3". Featured on collabos with Pase Rock ("Sexy MF") and Plastic Little ("Crambodia mp3"), there's no doubt the wispy white Philly girl in acid washed jeans (and ghetto nails) can really hold it down.

Feist’s Reminder to Us: Real Talent Still Exists

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Without mentioning the extensive list of highly popular and highly untalented songstresses these days, there is one current singer who is deserving of real praise: Leslie Feist. With the quiet self-assurance and raw vocal talent of Lucinda Williams, Chrissie Hynde, Aimee Mann and Nathalie Merchant, Feist makes her own unique musical contribution.
After purchasing her 2004 album “Let It Die” only last summer, it was still on heavy rotation in the popular venue that is my apartment, until very recently. The album’s gut-wrenching but oh-so-satisfying title track particularly caught my ear and made me fall in love with Feist’s ability to take us down to the depths without ever drowning us in them.
Let It Diemp3
Already content with “Let It Die”, I found myself reluctantly moving on to her latest offering “The Reminder”, released this month on Polydor. After listening to “The Reminder” a number of times now, I no longer feel like one has to replace the other.
Starting off with the mellow, acoustic “So Sorry” Feist gently unfolds her soft staccato into the dramatically paused lyrics “We … don’t…need to say goodbye. We…don’t…need to fight and cry. We…we could…hold each other tight…tonight.”
“So Sorry”mp3
She moves into more poppy territory in the next two songs “I Feel It All” and “My Moon My man” and then back into two slow-burning ballads “The Park” and “The Water”. The rest of the album progresses in a similar fashion. “Limit To Your Love” somehow reminds me of Van Morrison and you can hear hints of so many other artistic influences in all of Feist’s song. The second to last song on the album “Honey Honey” stands out as well for it’s jazzy organ bass and backing vocals that sound like a creeping train sounding its horn through the darkness of night.
“Honey Honey"mp3
Although Feist’s lyrics are honest and thoughtful, they are really secondary to the message of her music, which is clearly conveyed with her voice alone. Best experienced on headphones, Feist will take you on a meandering journey through the whole emotional landscape. As soon as you get to the last song, you’ll want to do it again.

Pat Yo Weave and Dust Yo Sleeve

Touring like mad, relative newcomers "Thunderheist" have burst into the ears of those in the know. Hailing from Canada and Comprised of MC Isis and DJ Grahm"Zilla", their sound conjures images of a cocksure yet playful MC Lyte in a spaceship (fueled by Grahm's infectious eletronic beats) heading to other planets. Their name is a play on the idea of "stealing the thunder" but it's hard to know who is the Thunder and who is the Heist in this case. Infact, with music this fresh, they may "Thunderheist" anyone who comes near them.

Contributors:Blac Ren, Miss ASH
This Ghetto Songtress MC from Chi-town has been quite popular lately and being featured in URB's "The Next 100" only helps matters. She keeps a busy schedule slinging baby clothes by day and slaying the MIC at night. Self-dubbed "high-yella" because her bi-racial parentage, the "Kid Sister" of Flosstradamus"isn't just following in big brother's footsteps but creating her own.
Did I mention she's also A-Trak's Wifey? With beauty and rapid fire, smartass lyrical content, she's a fine sista who needs to not only to be seen but heard.
