Taking Care Of Business

So I checked out the Cadence Weapon show in Toronto last Thursday, and have to say that I’m now a fan. I hadn’t heard anything by him, but he came recommended by the Persian Prince himself so for $12 at Lee’s Palace, how could I go wrong? I couldn’t, and part of the reason was because he reminds me of Tracy Morgan.

While the video for Real Estate is pretty good (thanks to The Tape for the find), the track is actually begging to be put over top of a re-purposed clips from Glengarry Glen Ross. If I had a video editing program, I’d probably do it myself.

But since I don’t, you might as well check out this 40 minute mix of house music “hosted” by Alec Baldwin clips from Glengarry (via the always-entertaining Canuckflack).

Anyways, I gotta dedicate this post to my boy Davey Boy Taylor holdin’ down the real estate game, Van-City style.

There’s more of Roland Pemberton (aka Cadence Weapon) on MySpace or his official site.

Man, after that earlier post about White Collar Wu-Tang and now this one, it feels like it is Take Your Rapper To Work Week or something.

As much as I hate to post a video with out a related audio file, I couldn’t resist this one:

LIGHTS - Drive My Soul (official music video)

According to a poster I walked by on College Street this morning, she’s going to be at the Mod Club on Friday. It’s a six pm show, so I don’t know if I can be bothered.

Ping Pong Perfect

Frankly, I’d like to see Kelly play Michelle in a game of ping pong.

Straight Out Of Stockholm

Maybe it is because I’m 1/4 Swedish, but from Snus to Espen, I love all things Scandinavian. It’s like there is something in the water over there that just makes stuff perfect and clean and beautiful.

It’s like I knew Lykke Li was Swedish the first time I heard her. Mostly, I can’t get enough of her song Little Bit (in all its remixed glory) but her other stuff is also pretty sweet.

Toronto Life says she’ll be at the moddy on October 24 and that tickets are $15. All the cool kids are going.

Lykke Li - Little Bit (Klumpfisk Remix)

Lykke Li - Little Bit (Loving Hand Remix)

Lykke Li - I’m Good, I’m Gone (Black Kids Remix)

Lykke Li - Dance Dance Dance (Chaise Marcel Remix)

Check out Lykke Li’s MySpace account or buy some of her songs on iTunes. Amazon even has her sweet little album “Youth Novels.” The Hype Machine has some more tracks from her.

If you still aren’t convinced, check out how gorgeous the video for Little Bit is and see if you don’t fall a little bit in love with her, too:

The best video of a midget dressed like Chucky that you’ll ever see.

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

My friend Claudio filmed this clip of a midget dressed like Chucky from the Child’s Play movies rapping on the streets of LA. If you look closely, you can see the mask on the ground beside him. The fake knife that he pretended to stab my friend with is in his back pocket.

The video for Stress by Justice is absolutely insane.

Thanks to Winnie Cooper for hooking us up with the remix.

File this one under “internet memes I never knew existed” - videos that are a mashup of rap and clips from the classic G.I. Joe Cartoon.

Here we have DESTRO and The Baroness doing a rendition of Junior M.A.F.I.A’s “Get Money”
