Take a dude who can rap old school, add some great ragga beats and send them to the UK to chill. You end up with Dizzee Rascal. Having worked with Ecko to design sneakers and Beck to remix a song, he has made a niche which as he says “the biggest conflict I have is with major labels because they still don’t get it.”

Don’t expect to find him just on the shelves here in America but don’t deny, you felt like dancing when you heard this.

Props to Radek911 bringing this to my attention.

Rampage Jackson is Losing to Life

I’ll tempt fate and hope that Rampage doesn’t read this and then come to my home and kill me with his chain or just looking at me. Turns out that this month is not his time to shine as he lost to Forrest Griffin for the Light Heavyweight title (great fight btw) and is now being charged with felony hit and run and felony evading arrest.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Rampage was in a car crash near Newport Beach (that’s near Laguna Beach in the O.C.) and then split the scene. Cops gave chase and eventually caught up…”

You can tell the cop knows better to just pull his gun, not because he is black but because even a tyrannosaurus is afraid of him. Oh well, hopefully this will lead to him coming back and pounding the shit out of Griffin.

Tapped Out.

Amazing.

Go Watch WALL•E

It is as simple as that, you need to go watch WALL•E. If you want to stop reading that’s fine because you already read the most important part of what I am going to say. Incase you missed it, go watch WALL•E.

Pixar has created an amazing gem of a film here that really blurs the lines of what is a kid’s film and what is a movie for adults. From the sober opening to the goofy robot chase, everything just works and clicks. What they did was create an amazing sci-fi film with a great atmosphere and message and then wrapped it in a cute and loving animation that everyone can like. For me, Pixar hit it with Toy Story 2, then it was Monsters, Inc. and now WALL•E takes the top pedestal position. I don’t want to say much more other than that and also the short film at the opening of the movie, a Pixar standard, is now their best as well. And yes, it does have a hoedown in it.

I Survived Nothing But an American Game Show

As soon as I saw the previews for this crap show, I knew something was wrong. There is no way any real Japanese gameshow would let some random American reality show clog up their schedule with filming some stupid shit. And it is just now that more people are realizing the truth that the show, I Survived a Japanese Game Show, is fake.

From the fact that every game on the show is a poor rip off of older shows to their “Japanese host” who is an American actor, there is not a shred of reality in the mixture. What is great is that more people are realizing it and hopefully the show will end fast.

BOO!

Final Fantasy: PIV Page is Live

Well to celebrate a glorious return to the blogging world and also MaoChan’s new design, I have released the first version of the greatest drinking game ever conceived. Don’t get me wrong but Kings gets stale, Beer Pong (whatever the fuck version you play) requires room and equipment, and Flip Cup is just that (read: Stupid). So now here is a drinking game that feeds the nerd side of people and offers complexity, strategy, cunning, and most of all, the opportunity to drink a fuckton of alcohol.

Check out the page listed on the top, right-hand side of the site.

Enjoy.
