Jay Z. Vs. Noel G.

The Glastonbury festival was just held overseas in the UK, it’s one of the biggest music festivals in the world and it’s held every year. This year the organizers booked Jay Z  as one of the headliners which touched off a small controversy when Noel Gallagher of Oasis launched a very public campaign AGAINST  the festival when  J-Hova was announced as one of the Glastonbury headliners, Gallagher criticized the booking due to the festival’s tradition of guitar-based Rock bands and his feeling that Jay Z (for this reason) clearly did not fit the festival. Needless to say as you can tell from the roar of applause,  the crowd knew that music is music and a hit is a hit. Being a fan of both Oasis and Jay Z I had to take sides on this one and I sided with J-Hova, and I wanted to show you how he began his set at Glastonbury, I live for this kind of s#%t!. The opening is an obvious F you to Noel G but when he tears into “99 problems” and breaks it down with ACDC’s “Back in Black”  too?……….You gotta love jay Z. ENJOY!

Last Letter Game!

So the powers that be have decided that less thinking on Nik’s part would be best for all concerned…….Hey, I think that is a thinly veiled put down!……….Anyway the last letter game jumps off weekdays at noon. I play a song. and then you get to choose the next song but it’s title has to start with the last letter of the song I played……..Dig it: Say I play “Sweet Child O’ Mine” then your song has to start with the last letter of my song, which would be “E”. SO  let’s say you pick “Everlong” and then the next miscreant must pick a song that starts with “G”…see the pattern?…..ya pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down?. Now, I do reserve the right to call “Wild card” in case some jackass picks a song that ends in “X” or “Z”, NOPE THAT AINT HAPPENIN’!. If the show is to be ruined I will be the one to ruin it thank you!. SO, I call “Wild card” and play something else and we start all over again,…….capice?……………….EGG-CELLENT!.  So check out the last letter game link off of my page and practice, or just rip off the cheat sheet YA LAZY GOAT!.

 Got it?,.See ya at noon BYTCHEZ!!!

 That is all, End transmission!.

The Beastie boy and the Notorious H.2.O

So I’m a HUGE HUGE HUGE Beastie Boys fan as everyone intelligent must be!> Adam Yauch  (street Alias “M.C.A”) came up to shoot the S#%t about his new movie that he  he directed “Gunnin for that number one spot” which is truly, TRULY dope. It’s about the elite 8 high school basketball players in the country who square off in the legendary Rucker park uptown. So apparently he got a little confused and thought we were not live on the air and dropped the “S” bomb which I caught ( I mean it’s a BS job but I would like to keep it!).

So, ok………… Moving on. His production company that released his film “gunnin for that number one spot” is also releasing another film  called “Flow”. This is a documentary about water, the earth, te privatization of water and how the third world is being raped for it’s water by corporate interests etc. Which I am completely in agreement with, I mean it’s WATER! You cant charge an indigenous people who don’t have two cents to rub together for a natural resource like WATER!. The problem is that one of his really big issues that is chapping his arse is bottled water, any sort, any size, large, small, domestic, imported, just water in bottles!.  His theory being that water is being hoarded by the same corporate interests, and that tap water is fine and we all should just use a filter on it because the plastic bottles are hurting people. hurting the environment, destroying the earth, and are a generally evil ms use of our resources. He kept saying that ” this has to change, we have to change”………. Now, this would not have been so bad if we had not placed THREE FULL BOTTLES OF POLAND SPRING H20 right in front of him when he sat down for his interview!. Now, we do this with anyone who comes in as a courtesy, i mean they come to Krock the least we can do is make sure they’re not parched when they talk to us. Although he was very nice about it, and polite, not only did he not take a drink from any of them,I think he left the station thinking that 92.3 Krock is a huge part of the problem plaguing this world!. Meanwhile Im hiding my huge 33 ounce bottle of “smart water” ( Im sure that’s a total crock, it’s probably just tap water  from some unknown source, maybe Nebraska!). So here we are  giving  Mr. Anti Bottled water activist not just one, but THREE bottles of the demon brew……. And I just thought; ” My god this is so frigging Krock”….. We are such idiots,……. We would show a film to a blind man, or offer a blood sausage to a VEGAN as a snack……LOL. I sheepishly offered the excuse;  ” but if we recycle the bottles that’s ok though isn’t it?”. Apparently that is not good enough either!.

Bottom line, like the song says MCA is “cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce”, I guess I just wont be the fourth Beastie Boy after all.  So check out the interview on my page as he is certainly a deep dude. Also if you can, get out and see “Gunnin for that number one spot”…. just fill up with  TAP WATER at home before you go!.

That is all, END TRANSMISSION!

Yes, i do indeed <3 vinyl.

a little while ago, i was talking about how much i wanted to buy the vinyl edition of NIN’s new albumd, “the slip”. i’m a bit of a collector, and in my personal opinion, vinyl sounds better to me.

i stumbled across this article at cnet.com, about how vinyl records are actually MADE.

http://news.cnet.com/8301-13772_3-9977878-52.html?tag=st.top

so, we’ve now managed to combine 2 of my obsessions. music and that damn show “How It’s Made” on the science and discovery channels.

that show has me so addicted its not even funny. it’s like stewie with his hynosis glasses when it comes on. they’re talking about stuff i have no interest in whatsoever, or dont even understand what it does in real life, but i can NOT look away!

it’s also helpful that my dad has about 37 1/2 hours of that stuff dvr’ed, so when the fiance and i visit, i dont converse anymore. i just sit there with this dumb look on my face, eyes glazed over and drooling slightly….and since i look like that normally, you cant tell im not paying attention to the conversation.

im sneaky like that.

Ask Ian, I’m a certified Anglo-phile.

i think its actually possible for me to recite the entire SHOW of monty python word for word.  all 4 seasons it.  i was raised to admire the british race car, i wanna drive a mini, i spent a spring break in edinburgh scotland, and several years ago, i actually applied to the bbc.  i love the music, london, the fact that they call apartments “flats” and flashlights “torches”.  id beam bbc america straight into my brain if at all possible, and i’ve spent more on doctor who dvd sets then i care to think about.

i also freaking LOVE guy ritchie films.  cept for the one with his wife in it (madonna).  lock, stock and two smoking barrels is complete sheer frikkin genius on the scale of which i can barely comprehend, and snatch, with brad pitt in it, is one of the most completely enjoyable movies i have ever set my eyes on.

which is why i’m ridiculously happy that he’s back in the game.  his new movie “rocknrolla” is about to hit theaters, and if u havent seen any of the films that i quoted up there, you should look at the trailer.

(besides, thandie newton is in the film.  damn staight!)

Hulk, Father of the year

So the latest controversy  with Hulk Hogan super dad, after the leaked telephone conversations between he and his jailed son Nick, the pics of he and his Lolita-like daughter (and BAD, BAD singer) Brooke Hogan. The  tamest of the pics  is one as he is apparently applying baby oil or suntan oil or something as he is cupping her buttocks.. Then there is one of his massive paws strangely within crotch range,……..She says it’s no big deal. I dont know, isnt this just CREEPY?

 That is all, ENd transmission!

Never EVER doubt Rivers Cuomo.

He’s like The Force.  He can go away for awhile, but he’ll always come back, and not necessarily how you think he would.

Like in the current incarnation of Weezer.  He’s got a porn-stache.

ALSO, he had some new material for a song, and he wanted some fan input.  So, he went ahead and posted pieces of the music on YouTube (my second youtube reference in as many days….must be a record or something) and had fans comment on what they had heard so far.  So he tweaked and responded, the fans listened and let him know what they thought some more.  Further tweaking and tinkering commenced, and in the end, came up with a damn good song.

It’s a little ditty going by the name “Turnin’ Up The Radio” and its pretty catchy.  Exactly what you’d expect from latter day Rivers.  Lotsa references to pop culture and how it’s all bunk in the end.

Oh, wait?  You wanna hear it?  Good thing the vid is just below this line of text.  Enjoy!

Ya know, if I tried to come up with a song, with listener interaction, I get the feeling it would sound like 2 angry, underfed felines having very angry sex.  I mean, if thats what you’re into.

Sicko.

Wait, I need a Nik Carter comment….ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

It would sound like Nik Carter singing?  WHAMMO!
