Tough Times… so LET’S DANCE

August 12, 2009


Hey everybody, sorry this blog has been so dead lately. A few of my best homies got themselves into a bit of a jam over in the Middle East and I’ve kinda had to drop everything and focus on trying to help them out. Gotta have priorities, and friends and family comes first, yadadameen?

Anyway, I’ve been so bogged down in serious shit lately that I haven’t even touched my turntables in a few weeks, so I’m gonna sit on the sidelines for this month’s Motion Sickness party. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been rockin’ dance floors for a solid decade now, but I just got too much on my mind to think about mixing beats these days… However, my trusted comrades Peter West (who I also share a music blog with) and Cyclist from the Grown Kids Radio crew will definitely be throwin’ down with special guest and all-around swell guy Shane King of Hacksaw Entertainment, so I encourage everyone to stop by, if you’re in the Bay Area. I’ll probably be on the main floor, trying to dance my worries away…

And hopefully all the bullshit will blow over and everything will be back to fucking normal soon.

PS: Thanks to Tim Simons for the flier design. That boy got skills.

Dolphins have been trained in attack-and-kill missions since the Cold War.

If you like to dance, come through a monthly party I do with the Motion Sickness crew at Vertigo tonight. This isn’t a music blog, so check out  Sneaky P’s blog or GrownKidsRadio if you want to keep up with that scene, but just to let y’all know — this flyer is based on a true story:

Armed and dangerous – Flipper the firing dolphin let loose by Katrina

“It may be the oddest tale to emerge from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Experts who have studied the US navy’s cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying ‘toxic dart’ guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet’s smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing.

Dolphins have been trained in attack-and-kill missions since the Cold War. The US Atlantic bottlenose dolphins have apparently been taught to shoot terrorists attacking military vessels. Their coastal compound was breached during the storm, sweeping them out to sea. But those who have studied the controversial use of dolphins in the US defense program claim it is vital they are caught quickly.”
