This Is My Pain/ These Are My Drugs/ This Is My Brain
So---how's my people? Things have been mad hectic in my world, but despite that fact, I've still been screwing around with some different ideas for upcoming posts. However, like any good weedhead, I suffer from a hyperactive procrastination gland, so most of my "projects" end up hangin' out in purgatorial limbo for quite some time. Apologies. Anyway, allow me to at least hit you up with some linkage, and then I'll go back to the drawing board (and quite possibly, the blunt):
At MP3 4U, you can cop the song "Prankster", some nice stuff by Will Bernard and Motherbug: http://www.mp34u.com/index.php. This track was recorded live at Bruno's in San Francisco a few years ago, and there's no proper way to describe it, except to say that it's pretty damn groovy. If you're interested in learning more about Bernard, check out his official website here: http://www.willbernard.com/default.htm.
Earfuzz recently posted a couple of songs by Rasputin's Stash:
http://www.earfuzz.com/. If you've never heard their music before, Junior accurately described their style as "a quality blend of funk and soul". If you know what's good, you could learn to love dat shit, son.
Checkerboard Chimes posted the mp3 for "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart", redone in the image of ODB and Macy Gray: http://checkerboardchimes.blogspot.com/. All I can say is that's one crazy-ass track---my guess is that you'll either love it or loathe it. If Big Baby Jesus just isn't your thing, you can also cop Just Blaze's mix of "Kookies" by MF Doom. I had every intention of liking that track, but I was pretty underwhelmed upon first listen. I don't know about you, but I find that it really sucks when that happens...
Breath of Life is featuring three outstanding musical selections this week. Download tracks by Les Nubians, John Coltrane & Thelonious Monk, and Nona Hendryx:
The Number One Songs In Heaven has had a couple of quality posts this past week. You can currently acquire two classic cuts by Jimmy Holiday, and a song by Ruby & The Romantics---"Your Baby Doesn't Love You Anymore":
The Broke B-Boys are featuring the artist responsible for today's image and quote---Roots Manuva. They posted three outstanding tracks from Run Come Save Me, an album that I played to literal death when it first came out: http://brokebboys.blogspot.com/.

Noing Noing takes a stab at "scientifically" proving that Republicans are "more stupider" than Democrats. Peep the methodology behind the madness here:
I'm still undecided as to whether or not Hillary Clinton would make a good president, but I'm absolutely positive that Bill would make a kick-ass First Lady. Get your t-shirts now, bitches! :
Finally, this has been circulating around the internet like crazy, but in case you haven't come across it yet, it's still worth posting. Cassette Jam '05 has a picture of just about every blank tape that was ever made: http://hanazuc02.ld.infoseek.co.jp/cassettes/cassettes.htm. I realize that many of you don't give even a tiny little fuck that the cassette tape has gone from endangered to nearly extinct. I probably wouldn't get all nostalgic about this fact either, if I wasn't such an old school rap reject. Prior to the technological revolution, it was just like Biggie said---"I let my tape rock 'til my tape popped". Surely you must have an old mixtape somewhere---my advice is to apply that bitch to your nearest ghetto blaster, and chill sucka...chill...
