Von Pea announces New Tanya Morgan Project; "You & What Army?!" I geek out inside.

leave a comment »

While we’re pointing out Twitter announcements, dont know if I’m allowed to point this one out but considering Von Pea announced it a few days ago and I’ve just been running behind on getting to all the musicawesomes in my life… I might as well point out more new music coming from Tanya Morgan, my favorite boys.
Now when a musician says September, that usually means a month or two after that. Regardless, after that “Without Hands” track they just dropped, I’m just happy to know that theres more good music on the way.

Kenny Keil makes you LOL.

Kenny Keil makes you LOL.

So remember a few months back when I featured my friend Kenny Keil’s Hip Hop Comic Book Covers in a post that I did (click here if you dont remember)? Then remember when I sat him down for an awesome interview to find out more about his awesome? Well… it gets even better. Kenny has finally made it to the big time, having his well drawn, LoL-filled comics featured in the LEGENDARY Mad Madagize (Issue #509). How awesome is this? I bought two copies just because I’m a nerd like that.

Hopefullly I’ll have some more time to sit with Kenny in the future and figure out how all this amazing happened to him. Hopefully he’ll still have time for me now with all this famousness going on. Until then, check out the photo (you knew I had to get one) and enjoy. 🙂

Congrats Kenny. I always knew you were awesome.

Lookin all sessy and professional.

 

I’m proud of her like I birthed her.

So My Buddy, the future famous Elle B is currently out there with Katy Perry rockin your lifes and starting the party at your concerts. Now while I haven’t been lucky enough to catch her in action (that will change once she gets back into the Los Angeles area), I have been crossing my fingers, hoping that my  legendary tradition of recording concerts and putting your footage up on youtube would manifest itself with some Elle B Content, and praise Jebus… it has.

I love it. And I’m honored to present My Girl in action. Check it out:

 

 

She’s pretty Boss, huh?
You can head over to Elle’s personal website for more info on her, her awesome music and travels with Ms. Kitty Purry.

Guitars and Concerts. Blessings and Breaks. More on what that means when you Click Here:

leave a comment »

The first 3....

So what are these Blessings, you ask? I was just offered a wonderful writing position with the KICKASS site, Autostraddle. Wow. Wowwee wowwow. Now, if you’re from the old school, you remember that Autostraddle was one of the first sites to show love and appreciation to me… just at a time where I really needed it. Well ever since then, we’ve been following each others awesomes and plotting out the right time to form like Voltron to give you some of the best fucking music you’ll ever be exposed to. Crystal and the amazing editors at AS have decided that now is that time. *humbled.*

Guitars and Concerts? Well tonight was an amazing night. A fairly normal night for what I do, but still amazing nonetheless. You can’t complain after an evening of wonderful music provided by Zoe Keating and her SuperCello, Kaki King and her 9011 guitars… sitting backstage in the house Jon Brion built. Real Instrument Playing Appreciation Night. Its going down. Not to mention my bestie Matt Melvin making the drive from San Diego to hang out for a while. I was surrounded by win this evening. It was a great feeling. Windy is all over the video, as usual.

Anyways, with that being said… here’s where the Breaks part comes in. When the boss is in town, its time to get to work. There will be traveling involved, so I won’t be on my computer (like THAT) for a minute.  Also; with the new writing gig

...and the other 4. 7 is the magic number.

at Autostraddle… along with kickin it over at the World Famous Potholes… I’m going to have some writing pieces Ima need to focus on. I have to sound like I’m creditable and like I know wtf I’m talking about… so we’ll have to gear all my good vocabulary and vernacular that way for a minute. But I’ll still be here, randomly writing my ass off about whatever, and then not editing the shit, making me look like a total dork.

On top of all that… Its time to start getting serious about finishing the archival for the site and new layout. You guys know ive been wanting to update my baby for a while, but the health of my friend who is doing this site take priority (hey Chris… I love you. Get Better). The less I post, the faster it can get done… so we’ll see how that goes.

I wont be going anywhere. I’ll be around to update you and hopefully post up the new Dee-1 Interview I just finished.  Until then, just go through the archives, because im sure you havent read everything I’ve posted. You do that, and I’ll see you guys in a few days.

Love,
Me.

p.s.
I LOVE ANITA BAKER OH MY GOD.
That is all.
