“Katt Williams Is Still A Stupid Mothafucka”

How to draw Katt Williams is a dragonart.com image by Michael Y

Big comedy specials are one of those anamolies that can fail big if they’re not done right. It’s like anything else. Everyone knows Katt Williams is a heavy-hitter. The guy pulls in audiences, packs arenas… he’s huge. So, it surprises me that such a large draw can buy what he’s selling when it’s referring to people who believe in evolution as stupid mothafuckas.

Blogger bleeding (test)

6:30 am – Okay. While I’m writing this thing, I’m thinking I might just let this sit here until the end of the day and then post it. That depends on how things go. But it seems that the most likely thing for me to do is to create as I move throughout the day. Write, post and share, write, post and share.

14:41 pm – Alright so I posted one thing and went to sleep. Just woke up to go to it again. So what do we have so far? Nothing. The phone’s been ringing off and on and pissing me off with every ring.


It is now 10:19 p.m. and I’ve been too busy writing the posts your seeing here to come back to this thing. Right now I’m catching up on some news stuff to see that Snowden is back in the news. Of course for any of us who have any interest in this stuff, we know he hasn’t been entirely out of the news cycle. But I want to go back to starting today, because I stayed up all night to take advantage of the advantage of Irma not getting here until six in the morning. My mom was scheduled to go to training in the morning for a potentially new job. (Time To Stay Awake)

What better way to keep off the news stuff than to switch gears to something else? I decided to check out some science stuff and after an article about extremophiles caught my attention, I ended up in this little rabbit hole about a particularly interesting creature I’ve never heard of before. Seems that there are a bunch of youtube videos on the thing which generally has a lot of the same information everyone else has. I haven’t looked into more of the details on this thing but will some day return to it to see what’s up. I think if I had the tools, I would have a bunch of these on my own for pets. Not sure how that would work. I guess I’ll also write about that later, but check out some of the stuff I’ve learned about this today. (The Coolest Thing I’ve Seen All Day)

Of course, once I’ve been out in space and alien territory, I have to come back to Earth for a bit to deal with the problem with conservatives. Since I write all the time and I’m constantly absorbing information (of course with the internet everywhere no one has to be a writer to see), I’m always reading what one party side says about the other party side. I mean political parties. So If you’re into that stuff, or need confirmation of anything, than I can say we should be making fun of conservatives for being stupid. I’ve been getting into some heated debates with people online lately. I can’t say that I’ve got it all figured out because If you’ve seen any of the rants I’ve done, you’ll find I’m fumbling with grammatical errors, spelling problems and not centering to a point. In all of them however, I’m just attacking them or laughing at them. I think we should keep on doing it! (Liberal Thom Hartmann suggests we should stop making fun of klanservatives)

I’m full of generalizations here because I’m jumping from one issue with conservatives here in the U.S. over to the pro-Russian idiots thousands of miles from here. Why should I care, right? Because Russia wants me to care. They want me to care that the U.S. government in involved in a coup, throwing out Yanokovich out of Kiev and putting a fascist regime in its place. But I can’t be swayed by that crap because I’ve been paying close attention to the events. Of course, that doesn’t matter because they’ll say that I’ve been force-fed U.S. propaganda and that it’s a bunch of lies. Well the, shit. If that’s the case then I’m going to pick a side and my guts tell me which one. The entire situation with the convoy — if it exists — is just frightening to watch within the context of the Russian propaganda machine. (Russian convoy is menacing result of propaganda)

I’m recalling the time that I spent in the presence of a police officer who was off duty. I wish I could find the link to that post but everything’s a mess right now so fuck it. Anyway, this whole gunning down of another black teenager is not only a problem with respect to the incident, but the conversation taking place around it. Every asshole has something to blame for the reason all of these things happen. The one thing people have gotten hung up on was the looting. Let me say that looting isn’t nor should it be the issue, but because we all have some connection to property, we have to weigh in as to how that should be protected and then we look for someone to blame in the context of the event. This is my solution to how to clear all that shit up. (Pig dispensaries should just let the looting happen)

Finally I will end this post with something that needed to start happening immediately, and that is me getting back into shape. I just came back from a 1 hour 3.3 mile walk. It feels pretty damn good and I was able to clear my head for a bit. (My Exercise Routine Starts Today)

Of course everything is a problem with me and this was no exception because I felt like I had to run this walking thing I was going to do with my mom first for permission, or rather a heads up. I don’t feel I need to do that but I had to explain to her what this means if she wants the both of us to walk together. Basically it means that she can’t walk the way I do and for me to walk the way she does, I’m going to have to downgrade to her level to do it and that’s not going to work for me. I told her we would go walk the way she wanted to and I would leave her in the apartment while I went to go walk the way I wanted to. I’m still young enough to do that and my goals here are not unreasonable but because of the age difference with the goal, I’m gonna need for her to tag along or get out of the way.

Oh yes, I was able to redeem another amount today which is almost going to put me at a hundred dollars a week. That’s definitely going to help me out. So thanks for reading this stuff as it puts money in my pocket.

The Split

Normally, I’d have an image on this part somewhere but fuck it, there’s too much to listen to and being too organized is a frightening reputation to have. I’m not ready for that kind of pressure.

Alright, it finally occurred to me what image should go up. There, now I’m a little more dependable. 

I don’t know when I decided to stop keeping things in order anymore. I don’t time anything, I don’t schedule it and worst of all, I no longer stress out about doing so. That’s me taking it easy, which is stupid. One things for sure thought, there’s always great new music happening everywhere and everyone’s trying to get their piece of the creative pie. Thanks to apps and pocket devices, I can tap into anything out there twenty four seven and I do.

Even more, thanks to the oldest food in human culture — beer, I can get the people that matter to tell me what’s up in the scene. Can I say that I’m over Sufjan Stevens today? I just hit the skip on that track. Okay. Now I feel bad. I’m gonna break these up in chunks cause I want to talk about all of it in healthy portions. So let’s do this thing!

We wrote a little about these guys in July and they’ve just posted some new info on their Facebook page about an upcoming album during the first week of September but you don’t have to wait to hear it. Here’s their post:

Hey guys,

If you’re a new fan and haven’t heard anything we’ve put out, please go give it a listen on spotify! Even though, it’s just a little money they do send us checks every time you guys listen. That helps us start the recording and touring process all over again. Since our first record “Huj! Huj! Hajrah!” was released in 2012 we released a 2 song EP on digital outlets only, entitled “Ey, Miner”…which were 2 songs recorded during the sessions of our new album, “Cisco” (Sept. 2, 2014). We will also have in the coming months following “Cisco” a 4 song EP released on digital outlets only entitled “Ghosts of Cisco”. Please stay tuned, as we’re always trying to keep music coming out and tour as often as we’re allowed. Really thank you guys the most…Bye!

So if you have an account with spotify, then get on that. If you don’t then get one, we’ll be checking out that album fo sho! http://open.spotify.com/artist/3tfk9ZzGqVmsAoyLyltorc, if you’re a bit reluctant to go check that out, here’s a sample of what to expect:

Christine and the Queens (Nantens, France)

I am super fucking obsessed with this woman. She’s everything I want and everything I need. Judging from this video, I think she might have a slight obsession all her own with Michael Jackson. Not a big deal because he wins every time. While we’re at it, let me also say that Justin Timberlake annoys the shit out of me. Okay.

But this blog is about good music you haven’t heard of and my playlist, which, turns out, is full of stuff you haven’t heard. It’s also full of stuff I haven’t heard. I listen to tons of this everyday and all day and so it’s always changing. Every now and again, something sticks and this has certainly done that!

If you like this video and maybe you saw the other one posted on our Facebook page, then check out this other track for which they too have a video too.

 

Grassfight (New York)

Back in the day (circa 2010) I did an interview with this great then Dallas band. They’ve since moved to New York but they’re still killing it to this day with new tracks in the works, as this video from this year shows. New album not too far away. It’s not too late to improve your music collection with these two EPs. I’m telling you, man. You want this.

 

According to their Facebook page, they will be at the Bowery in New York on August 29th. Get into it! Just so you know, they’ve opened for BRMC. So I know what I’m talking about.

Cleric (Dallas, TX)

Alright guys. No more fucking around. Tonight, these guys will be playing a much anticipated show at Club Dada opening for the O.C. monoliths Phobia. I’m not fucking around, the talent buyers aren’t fucking around and neither is Cleric, with the work that went into the beautiful artwork for the vinyl you can buy from the bandcamp shop below.
