You know, I (We) should be dumbfounded at how someone like this has served, not one, but two terms as the President of these United States, elected by the people for the people. And we're supposed to be one of the more educated societies of the world. Are we??? I think that's a legitmate question.

The Donna Cappa Goines

The Cappatilize Project is better than some of the other Wu member's projects that have dropped. I'm not saying it's any good. Two of my favorite tracks clock in under the 2-minute mark.

"The Annointing"
"Peace God" feat. Born Divine - (Somebody actually flipped the Bee Gee's "Nights On Broadway" and layed it down quite flat).

Not Here

I think I could turn and live with animals, they're so
placid and self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania
of owing things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived
thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

- Walt Whitman

The Next Plateau

Wow. Things done changed.

I just caught Planet B-Boy on MTV2 this past Sunday night. I know that breakdancing had evolved into something more than uprocking and backspins but the contemporary b-boy continues to take the art form to new heights. Sometimes when I see what they're able to do, physically, with the precision, speed, intricacy, complexity, and the sheer strength and body control it takes to pull off each move...I dunno. I don't think they're human. And battles sure as hell aren't what they used to be.

Oliver Wang interviewed the documentary's director Benson Lee back in June of 2008 which you can read here.

The documentary is definitely worth checking out.

He is a Grandpa, but he fathered your style...

Wasn't too impressed with Pro Tools but this track, produced by Bronze Nazereth, is worth a listen. GZA sounds like he just rolled out of bed and into the booth but the track bangs.
