I heard that payback's a mother fuckin' bitch But I won't stress and I won't switch And I would not take my life Glory please, my God, the only thing on my mind Takes up all of my time And I said, ooh!
Running from a gun Or some brain that weighs a ton And my God, it hurts to get so low Searchin' through the cars Cold, still searchin' through the night I think I will run, to you But I refuse to fuss and fight
And God may find a reason Well I'm sure you'll find a rhyme Because it takes up nearly all my time He who stands for freedom God knows I've got the number But maybe I just use too much
I was sitting in that bar I'm sittin' in that stolen car Cold, still rollin' down the boulevard Saw you with a gleam And the microphone scene Think I will run, to you But I know I won't live for me Cause I know God's got both The reason and the rhyme Please tell me, why he takes up all my time I've been drinking, just like you And baby, you've got something I can use
Payback's a mother fuckin' blast But I won't stress and I won't blast And I would not take my life Glory please, my God, comin' from heaven above Takes up all of my time And I said
'Why must I feel like that'
Running from a gun And some brain that weighs a ton You know, I did that line for Flava' Flav But, all the DJ's do it All the DJ's use it I would run, I would switch But I wanna be the same And I know I'll find a reason 'Cause I always bust a rhyme Because it takes up nearly all my time The "T" here stands for treason The "D" hear stands for dove And maybe I just use too much Maybe I'm just used too much
I'll be celebrating my birthday on Saturday, November 15 by playing the opening set at Sullivan Room. Headlining is the super talented Justin Martin from San Francisco. I opened for him the last time he played at Sullivan Room, and it was a slammin night. It's sure to be more of the same, but a million times better!
You can hit me up for guestlist by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The fun kicks off at 9pm.
2 for 1 drink until 11pm.
Sullivan Room is located at 218 Sullivan Street b/t West 3rd and Bleeker.
A nice little 24 minute documentary filmed by the We Love people to capture the closing party of We Love Space Sundays last month in Ibiza, featuring extensive chat footage with Ben Watt and techno don, Jeff Mills.
Just watched the Palin Rap skit from last night's SNL. Is it me, or are the funniest bits on the show anthemit pseudo-rap songs? Who care though because I cracked up while watching this, and I actually kinda like Palin now...is that bad?
Here's the one that started it all on SNL, imo. Always a good time to go back and revisit after it's been awhile:
CMJ: Prime Time w/ Eamon Harkin + James F!@$%^ Friedman + special guest GREG WILSON
The infamous Prime Time party comes to Santos!
Greg Wilson has a pedigree stretching back to the original disco era. He first came to national prominence in the early 1980s as the first to champion New York's emerging Electro-Funk sound and he was the first DJ to mix records on national TV and in 1983, Greg became the first dance music DJ to become resident at Manchester's legendary Hacienda, then very much an indie and 'alternative' music venue.
Fast forward to 2008 and Greg is back with full force, turning in remixes for DFA, Rong Music as well as a sublime mix CD for 20:20 vision and the latest podcast for the influential Resident Advisor.
Armed with a laptop, turntables and, of course, his trusty Revox B77 reel-to-reel, Greg brings his alchemical mixing and customized re-edits to NYC to play Prime Time at Santos Party House on Saturday October 25th.
While New Yorkers have been consumed by the stock market meltdown, a tiny little pet store quietly opened four days ago at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village of New York City.
There are no puppies or kittens in the windows here.
Instead, a live leopard lounges on a tree in the window.
Or is it?
In other windows, things get a bit more bizarre.
McDonald's Chicken McNuggets sip barbecue sauce. A rabbit puts on her makeup. A CCTV camera nurtures its young.
Once inside Banksy's pet store, you discover such things as breaded fish that swim in a large round bowl while hot dogs are living the high life under heat lamps in cages near the cash register.
This is the first time that Banksy has used animatronics, and the effect is absolutely amazing.
A clear departure form last year's behemoth show in Los Angeles, Banksy's first ever show in New York City (the others have been fakes) is being held in a tiny storefront that's less than 300 square feet and can't hold more than 20 people at any one time.
One of our favorite things about what Banksy has done is that the entire show is completely visible to the public both day and night through the store front windows. And unless you're a hard core Banksy fan, or until someone like us tells you, it's absolutely impossible to know that the work has been done by Banksy. There are no paintings or graffiti in the entire space.
We're sure that as soon as people start reading this, photos and video will be all over the web. But Sara and I don't want to give too much away. It's just too much fun to be surprised (and delighted) in person.
So here's just a taste of what you'll experience in Banksy's "Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill".
Starting the moment you read this, until October 31st (Halloween), Banksy's pet store is officially open each and every daily from 10am until midnight.
One piece of advice - Bring a video camera as still images don't do the place justice!
“New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets. So I’m exhibiting them instead. I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing. I took all the money I made exploiting an animal in my last show and used it to fund a new show about the exploitation of animals. If its art and you can see it from the street, I guess it could still be considered street art."
It's important to sift through what's been said and decipher what's true and what's not. I don't have the time nor wherewithal to do so, however, FactCheck.org does a good job, so check it out if you care enough.
