Expert Traveler

January 2nd, 2009 by Ultimate Cowboy

On my way home from a little holiday jaunt over to the valley isle, airport security directed me away from the lineup of American cattle and towards the queue for Expert Travelers.

Finally - some recognition for the amount of time that I’ve spent at airports.

They still made me take off my shoes, and I was subject to additional screening because I forgot to take an American nickel out of my pocket.

Here are some airplane-related tracks that you can cruise the skies to.

Daft Punk -Voyager

Louie Vega & Jay ‘Sinister’ - Diamond Life (I just love those Hed Kandi cats)

Coyote - Too Hard (Aeroplane Remix) (snagged off of Palms Out)

Trouble Coming

December 18th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

Word is that back in the day the CIA distributed a booklet to Nicaraguan citizens about how to upset the government. You can check it out here, or look at some pictures from it below.

These totally make me want to start bringing a dry, compressed sponge to parties.

I also like the idea that a government can be toppled with false hotel reservations.

On a related note, Taliesin is distributing a pretty wicked mix that I’m sure will upset someone. (I guess he’s part of Dutty Artz, whatever that means). Full track list is below.

Life In Lotus Land II: Tokyo Auto Salon

December 18th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’ve got a ton of pictures from Japan that I’ve never really shown anyone.

Here are some from the Tokyo Auto Salon that my friend Datablend took me to. Apparentally it is the world’s biggest customized car show. That means that there are no stock cars, everyone single one has been modified in some way.

It also means that there are a ton of car babes.

To continue with the Japanese theme, here are some tracks that Takeuchi sent me. I really dig that Kills one because I listened to them a lot while I was living in Japan.

The Kills - Cheap and Cheerful (Hoshina Anniversary Remix)

Cut Copy - Heart on Fire (Hoshina Anniversary Remix)

Hoshina Anniversary - House Trance On Love

Digitalism - Take Away (Hoshina Anniversary Remix


Big Knockouts and Brutal Violence

December 18th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

I added that picture of BJ Penn turning Joe Stevenson into a murder scene because The Persian Prince sent me a couple of tracks and wrote me an email about MMA last week:

“Remember when we used to spend an inordinate amount of time watching big knockouts? Perhaps the most satisfying of which was watching over-rated Kimbo Slice getting his ass handed to him in 14 seconds from a washed up ex-UFC fighter. Not sure whether he loves big knockouts as much as us, but Praverb references the aforementioned KO in this new track, “Blessed with the Gift”, produced by Teddy Roxpin.

I don’t much care for Kanye the rapper (let alone Kanye the robo-voice singer)….but Kanye the producer?  Pretty much never misses.  Case in point: the new Jay-Z track with the fantastic Santogold sample.”

Praverb - Blessed with the Gift

Jay-Z - Brooklyn Go Hard

I love Penn because he’s from HI, and I’m stoked to see him and GSP go at it in January.

3 O’Clock

3am or 3pm, Tzero is looking good in that wig. In fact, he looks like a real brawler. I wouldn’t mess with him.

Heads We Dance - The Human Touch (Charlie Fanclub Remix)

The Presets - Talk Like That (Dave Spoon Mix)

Body Rollin’

December 12th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

I didn’t know what Body Rollin’ was until I saw this video, and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

This new Crookers vid also has some good body-rollin’ action

Thanks to First Up and Trash Menagerie for the vids.

Life in Lotus Land

December 8th, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

A few years ago I spent some time living in Japan. I’m going to start posting some of my pictures from those days here because no one has ever really seen them before.

Japanese home

I should start studying Japanese again - its a beautiful language.

Here are a couple of tracks with Akira Kosemura. I don’t know if he is popular in Japan, but I like these songs and they seem to go with the pictures. Sorry if they’re a bit of a departure from what I normally post, but that’s just the mood I’m in.

Dom Mino - Scarlett (Akira Kosemura Remix)

Akira Kosemura - Garden

Haruka Nakamura - Nord

Find more Haruka here and more Akira here.

The Akira Kosemura remix courtesy of everyone’s favorite Lemur, the other two from Slowcoustic.

More White Collar Hip-Hop

From the photocopy room to the server room, this shiznit is taking over.

Check out more white collar beats here and here.

Tabloid Fodder

December 2nd, 2008 by Ultimate Cowboy

For no real reason, here is a picture of a white tiger with the text “Tabloid Fodder” and some black lines I added using a pen and a ruler.

Thanks to my blogalicious friend Maria Sophia for pointing out this wicked track.

Trash Yourself - Touch (AC Slater Remix) (via Fancy Sounds)
