Sensual Seduction

November 29, 2007

Ridiculously fresh new Snoop video, and the dog seems to be channeling the late great Roger Troutman for inspiration. Track is produced by Shawty Redd but I would’ve bet my life that Pharrell had his hand in this one. I’m actually looking forward to Snoops upcoming album “Ego Trippin”, wow the last time i’ve looked forward to a Snoop Dogg album was when I was 12 when “Doggystyle” came out. This video is a very, very late entry but it might be my favorite music video of 2007. I know I posted that I was sick of Vocoders, but that was mainly due to my hate for T-Pain. Now Snoop Dogg and vocoders, i’m 100% fine with.

Snoop comes out on stage in the beginning of the video holding that keyboard guitar might be the funniest thing i’ve ever seen.

Nintendo DS Famicom Adapter

November 28, 2007

DS Famicom

Being able to play Japanese Famicom games on my DS would be the greatest thing to ever happen to the DS. Sure it triples the girth and weight of the portable gaming machine but being able to play Seiken Densetsu 3 where ever I want is so worth it. This Famicom adapter for the Nintendo DS has a TV out so you can play it straight on your TV which in essence makes it basically a full blown Famicom. It looks like from the picture that the adapter only fits the DS Lite model, which means I would have to upgrade from my older, larger first generation DS. I hope this thing gets good reviews and is not too expensive(I wouldn’t think it would be) and I hope I can buy it through Playasia or something. All I know is I want one. Comes out in Japan next month. Via DS Fanboy

For the record I think that the Super Famicom has THE BEST game library of any console.

The World According To Pretty Toney

November 23, 2007

Along the same lines of “ODB: Words of Wisdom” from Chris Rock’s comedy CD Bigger & Blacker. Ghost kindly dropping gems for all you smart-dumb cats out there. Take good notes kids.

Personally, i’m waiting for Chef Raekwon’s Chinese Cooking Tips & Techniques.

The Return of FNF Radio

I’ve been eagerly waiting for this. Lu & Bishop back once again gracing the podcasting airwaves with exclusives, the news, the weather and absolute hilarity. Got hip to this through Childrebelsoldier blog.

Skate Game Intro

November 22, 2007

Best video game intro i’ve ever seen. I wonder which P-Rod colorways will be available and if Compton Ass Terry will be wearing Ice Creams. I want to play this game but I STILL haven’t made the jump to next gen consoles yet. Me being the retro gamer that I am, i’m just way too busy trying to beat Ghost n’ Goblins on my NES. Oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving. Next time I update this site, i’ll be 5 lbs heavier due to massive calorie intake.

Japanese Street Wear Catalogs

November 18, 2007

I was in San Francisco this past week at the Kinokuniya Bookstore in Japantown, which is arguably my favorite place in all of Frisco. It’s between this or the On The Bridge restaurant around the corner from Kinokuniya. Picked up some catalogs while over there. I actually refrained from draining my wallet this time around which is surprising considering they had more catalogs then normal. My bank account thanked me. It won’t like me so much when/if I go to Japan though. Things I didn’t pick up were the Fall/Winter Bape Kids catalog, Street Jack 2007 #10 and #11, and a Head Porter catalog.

Kinokunia-1 11/07

Street Jack 07 12

This issue of Street Jack came with an Atmos tote bag. I’ll never use it.

Honeyee Mag #2

Issue #2 of Honeyee Mag is my favorite of the bunch. I still need to pick up issue #1.

A Bathing Ape Catalog Fall/Winter 07

The Bape catalog came with with a pencil pouch and three pencils. Again, things I will never use but will keep stricly for the novelty of it.


Sexual Healing Is The Greatest Song Of All Time

November 17, 2007

Marvin

There are things that are certain in life, things that are absolute. From the short amount of time i’ve been alive on this earth, I know of a few things that are always constant: the sky being blue, water being wet, fire being hot. Things that will never change no matter how much time passes. Among these things that im 100% sure of is that “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye is the greatest song of all time.

Most people cite Let’s Get It On as his best “mood” setting song but the real heads know that Sexual Healing is the one. Let’s Get It On is a classic in its own right but it’s turned into such a cliche that it’s allowed this sleeper to sneak in there and take that top slot, in my eyes at least. His lyrics on this song, legendary. When he starts the song with the line: “baaaaaby, i’m hot just like an oven, I need some lovin’/and baaaaaby, I cant hold it much longer, it’s getting stronger…and stronger.” You know its over, it’s fucking over. When he says these lines, in all honesty I think the chances of a guy getting laid increases by 20%. It may not sound like much, but believe me, speaking for the entire male species…IT’S ALOT. And as the song progresses, the more Marvins voice and lyrics sink into the brain, our chances of getting some just continues to increase exponentially to the point of 100% certainty.

Marvin is the epitome of soul music and this song proves it. Not just because of the beat, not just for the lyrics as a whole but simply because of one line in the song. Its the line that goes: “you’re my medicine, open up and let me in. Darlin’ you’re so great, I cant wait for you to operate.” <- Goddamn, that has to be the illest line uttered in any song EVER in the history of music. Working “I cant wait for you to operate.” in a song titled “Sexual Healing” is so fitting it’s genius.

What more can I say? If Marvin Gaye + X = the greatest song of all time, X will ALWAYS be Sexual Healing, i’m certain of it.
