Anyway Children, I have realized…
..that I am an artist who does NOT come from a “scene”.. like Houston Tx. (even tho my momma from Tx.), The red hot FLA scene, Jamaica, NYC, or Great Britain.
Chicago is a really a collection of assorted scenes… none big enough for locals to immediately attract a CROWD.D.D, unless they do cheezy cover tunes. (Red Red Wine, my ass… , so many audiences… , cursed tha fk out, with a smile) Hey.. I love you, but wise up!
It is therefore my responsibility to cultivate my own fan base. I cannot simply do ‘my thing’. I must also let you know how it is making an impact worldwide… or it could seem like ‘no big deal’, and we can’t have that.
Already, I have touched each of the afforementioned “scenes” (and many more) in various ways; and I will do so again…. only this time.. I am keeping track )
The Associated Press is reporting that Somali pirates have hijacked a Saudi oil tanker off the coast of Kenya…..
… a foolhardy band of ragtag ex-fisherman in a dinghy have taken control of a thousand-foot long supertanker… supposedly using nothing more than………..
… what to do now?
I seriously doubt you could move merchandise like that in Craigslist ‘Collectibles’ secti.OH WAIT…!
I spoke too soon…
Now we know who to blame when your gas prices go through the roof…!!
(just like Proposition 8… two moolies did it)
Only these were Somalian and Kenyan moolies… so when they come asking for our good, old fashioned red-blooded, American dollars to feed their starving children, I just may nay say!!…or is it..say nay?
At any rate, you could be funding PIRACY… and not the cool Johnny Depp kind either.
Our money is better served sending AIG executives to Happy Hour in Cancun.
At least that way, we’re stimulating OUR economy.
wait, Kenya…? Didn’t we just vote one of THEM into office as President??
(I am waiting to see who coyly raises that issue first),
I can’t help but wonder..
Did it really happen like that, or are they looking for an excuse to raise oil prices again?
Sorry, media… you have taught me not to trust you… It’s like the boy who cried wolf
I have to give it up to some of my virtual friends sometimes… They find and take advantage of some of the most innovative technology out there. As someone who JUST started a BLOG (Sooo 2003, I’m told), I feel like I have to give props, before I out and out COPY what they are doing… yup.I said it
So Crisco Kidd… Houston, Tx. radio personality, and one of my peeps on Twitter not only broadcasts his shows, but he offers a video simulcast on a service called Kyte…
OK all you web geeks laugh all you want to… it’s new to me..! And no this is NOT some damn advertisement, you drones… I MIGHT have been on one of his mixtapes back in the day (not sure)… but THAT radio station sure the HELL is NOT playing my sh**.. in the fourth quarter especially..lol every millisecond is bought and paid for. (encouraging the disc jockeys to take less BREATHS… because it cuts into commercial time.lol)
Anyway File this Kyte business under the..”Damn, You Can Do That?? Category”…It has me thinking, like twitter, myspace, facebook, and my own site…etc.etc… at some point, I just might try it.
Not so sure if videos of me taking 45 mins. to start a ’77 Cordoba will go over… but the ones where I chase my racist azz neighbor’s dog out of the yard with a water hose, and then turn it on him, (and then his wife starts hitting on me) … they should do just fine.
Any takers for a camera crew?
Of course I may start with something like a video blog on YouTube.. but it’s a step in the right direction.
I shall keep you pos.tEdd.d
Check out Crisco’s site.. proof I can have respecK for people with upside down political views, as much as the next guy..(jab) lol http://criscokidd.blogspot.com/
Well… apparently this is no time for the usual talking of my sh**…
A CEASEFIRE has been proposed by the Sudanese government which could bring stability to Darfur…!!!……………(again)
I think I have a very good idea of why this has happened.. (your azz is STILL going to jail, Omar…)
The only problem with any peace accord is that it often interferes with certain (POWERFUL) individuals’ money-making self interests..
You have to wonder about any place with a per Capita GNP of $600, but plenty of AK47′s for every kid above the age of 7… Then you have to wonder who helped them to achieve such “Utopian” heights as a society.whoa… I said I wouldn’t start.
Well let’s just keep our fingers crossed.
You know,, this is a damn SHAME.
First robots are taking our JOBS away, and now they are invading the art world…!
Well I for one am NOT feeling this…
Let’s see him do a stage dive into the front row, and start kicking the sh** out of audience members for not paying attention; how bout THAT?.. He’ll probably just STAND THERE, like a BIG DUMMY ROBOT.
Let’s see him go on You Tube and talk some sh** about R2D2 being a hype.., start spreading rumors about C3PO’s sexuality.. THAT’S what the music biz is all about. Betta recognize…
He ain’t even got no BLING in his mou.shit he ain’t even GOT a MOUTH! well at least he can’t SNITCH
Come to MY hood tho, we’ll take his chain (or extension cord) and have that sh** on EBay quick, fast and in a hurry.
Two Moolies did it… America’s all too familiar catch phrase when scapegoating N*WORDS for everything that doesn’t go so well….
So here we have proposition 8, yet another government BAN, on grown folks being able to do what the hell they want to do. It’s the measure which prohibits gays from getting legally married… and it sailed through California legislature with flying colors.
Considering the fact that California is a mostly CONSERVATIVE state, with a REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR, it really comes as no surprise… what IS surprising however, are the headlines that followed… well, maybe not so much.
Don’t give me that sh**… this is classic SCAPEGOATING.
Gay people are up in ARMS, and rightfully so… but direct your anger where it belongs.
The average Black or Latino person has NO stake in helping to pass this BULL SHIT Law.
This ban would NEVER pass without a heavy White, conservative consensus as well..!
REPUBLICANS primarily do not want to give gay people the right to get married, because married people GET A TAX BREAK… and that’s less tax dollars, THEY can spend on gay escorts.. while pretending NOT to be gay.. (ahem Larry Craig)
There is also that ‘Death Tax’ to consider. A spouse will get everything… Can’t have that… when there are future wars to be fought…
This pain in the azz law should be called ‘Preperation H’, because it was designed to set a prescedent, and FK the whole country..
If you think it stops with gays you’re dead wrong… Next up… interracial relationships, as they saturate the airwaves with that ‘Birth Of A Nation’ style reporting of N*WORD HIV / murder / gang / crime statistics.
Once the population is sufficiently segregated… that’s when the REAL fun starts.
Since people forgot already… here is a quick refresher on how the REPUBLICAN PARTY does business in
The Great State Of California, and elsewhere…
So, you’re out there calling Black people the N*WORD??? Attacking Latinos???……..
You are barking up the wrong tree… Gay or straight… THAT mindset is the reason propaganda tactics work so well in the U.S.
Prop. 8 passing could have been a reported LIE as far as the vote count. But you’ll never consider that, because you’re out reverting to your true essence, of someone who HATES… yet does not want to be HATED. It’s wrong from every angle.
Tell EVERYONE I said it… and you have NEVER heard me sing a kill Batty Boy song. That kind of sh** is not what I’m about. I am here to promote unity.
You have seen Republicans STEAL the (2) most recent PRESIDENTIAL Elections… and you actually accept that “two moolies” got this law put on the books??
What’s the difference between THIS… and the McCain / Palin Klan Rallies you were too ‘dignified’ to take part in last month?
I knew the whole world went crazy when I heard people saying that CHURCHES played a major role in this decision…
Now let’s be honest… there are SO MANY…. choir directors…. and priests, and pastors…. up in those churches…………………………who probably voted NO on Prop 8…………. for any number of reasons …………………….
This is the legacy of Lee Atwater at its finest… inciting blind RAGE / PANIC / UNREST amongst the citizens, while the elites laugh. The ultra-rich need the common folk to hate each other, otherwise there will be another ‘French Revolution’ situation, where nobility is ’locked in The Bastille’ for their oppressive ways.
Barack Obama better keep that ‘fight the smears’ website on Red Alert…! It’s been less than a WEEK since his election, and already, things have gotten so………… interesting.
Well you know the bizzness. The ‘Sunny Side Up’ events are already reknowned for bringing the massive together thru music.
Beautiful people living in Chicago, and hailing from many different parts around the world, congregate to check the latest in Global Dance Rhythms. It is a conscious party for one and all.
This Saturday I will be making an appearance at Sunny Side Up, alongside DJ Hectissimo.
Actually I will be out in the middle of the dance floor (as if I could really dance.lol) and then
Live Intel over the sound system… (I def. know how to do that…) Should be lots of fun.

OK that’s it for my political punditry… (don’t bet on it)
Barack Obama is elected and the whole world loves one another, right?
Well, I guess we’ll find out. You need my expertise, and you know it.. hahaa
Anyway, in the mode of minding some of my own damn business for a while, I have been performing with a live band out of Chicago,,, The Drastics. I feature as part of their set, with another singer named Fada Dougou.
In the spirit of musical togetherness, The Drastics makeup is as diverse as you can get. African, German, Irish, Sicillian, Iranian… and the Crazy Baldhead from Panama. ) We didn”t plan it like that, one of them had to be very drunk, and he started pointing it out… I think it was the Irishman. Then the Sicillian kicked his ass while the German called the police, the Iranian set fire to the tour bus, and the African slept through the whole drama.
That’s how I knew I had found a home.
Anyway we can play any genre of music, BUT ‘The Drastics’ is a bad azz Dub-Reggae band.
The Drastics started gaining serious momentum last year, after we did the ’07 Ska Festival (yea mon music a music) in Knoxville Tn. We cultivated a nice name until our idiot drummer threw himself in front of a mack truck,. lol naaahhh…
What really happened was a hit and run situation, we were all worried as hell, but the kid is tough. We should be playing shows again in the next few months.
………… In The Meantime…
* Once a month The Drastics will be releasing a new single digitally (with a DUB.)
* Which ever one you all like best will be pressed to vinyl
