Music and moonshine

Music and moonshine

It started, as most musical endeavors do, with a conversation at an after party some months ago. Fueled by confidence of the fermented sort I requested a pianist to record some songs far removed from my usual repertoire. A friend of mine latched on to the idea, but as always with conversations like these, nothing really came out of it.

Until this weekend.

Since our initial conversation, my friend has built a small recording studio in his trailer, next to his still and the pillow that his neighbors cat usually sleeps on. It's cramped, but functional. Perfect for a duo who doesn't mind the drip-drip-drip sound of distillation, and knows how to appreciate the unconditional love only other peoples cats can give.

Sadly, we were unable to fit a working piano in there, so we had to settle for a smaller, electronic one, but beggars can't be choosers.

After spit-balling a couple of ideas, we recorded a song my friend wrote for the acoustic guitar a while back. There's other songs in the pipeline, but thanks to the aforementioned still, this is the only one we got down on tape during our first session.

So if you can appreciate a raspy voiced, piano based dirge, please check out our efforts at

Oh, if anyone know any better way of sharing mp3s for free, please let me know in the comments. Myspace is weird.

Ice T appreciation

Even though hardcore punk and grindcore is my poison, hardcore rap do have a special place in my heart. And as a young nogoodnik, Ice T was, along with NWA, the voice that showed me that hip hop could be as hard as the guitarbased evil I usually indulged in.
 
Since Ice T might make an appearance on the site, I just wanted to take some time out to enjoy "The Tower", from what I deem his greatest, not to mention darkest, album "O.G. - Original Gangster"

Crap...

...just realized there's a quest for writing 20 blog-posts.
 
Will I be tempted to spam the fuck out of this thing, or do I have 18 valid blog posts in my head?
 
Time will show.

Why write?

If one ignores the quest-related reasons for writing a blog here on the site, what other reasons are there?
 
-I'm not an industry insider, so I don't have info about exciting new stuff or behind-the-scenes shenanigans
-I'm not a power gamer, so I don't know much about tips, tricks, hidden areas or speed running games
-I rarely get games on release, preferring to save my money and enjoy the games when they're eventually marked down to entice cheap-skates like me, so any reviews would be late.
-I don't care about graphics or FPS. All I want is to do some sweet backside tailslides in Skate 3 and replay Monkey Island one more time
 
So I'm not sure what I'd be bringing to the boards, as of now. I love the way this site relies on user input, and I'll try to do my share of wiki-grinding. Other than that, bring on the quests and the quick looks.
