Let me start from the beginning…

…at the top of the list – nawmean, have situation like this…

Whatever the time of day, it’s never a bad time to throw some Mobb Deep in the mix. That much I’ve learned.

Tuesday 18th August, 2009.


With the release of my Strange Famous-branded debut album ‘Late Model Sedan’, I wanted to write down some thoughts and historicals for you, on myself and some of the projects I’ve been involved in over the years. Who I am. All that mess. I know there are a lot of people who will know most of this already, close friends and acquaintances and listeners of all description, but it’s also plainly obvious to me that I’m not hugely well known and I’ve never assumed myself to be. I must stress that! I’m easily flattered for the most part but mostly I’m just extremely grateful for any kind or positive words that I’ve received over the years. I’ve been involved in music for a lot of years now and hopefully this will continue into the distant future (As long as I can do it I will), so I thought it’d be a good time to fill you in what’s been happening round these parts.

I used to seeeeell… mixtaaapes…

I haven’t bought a new mixtape in a long time. Not because I’m not an enthusiast – quite the opposite, but as someone who was once on top of my game and knew what most DJ’s day to day moves were on a daily basis, I know how tough it can be to stay even a few steps behind what’s happening, let alone ahead of it all… And I’m talking about the days before widespread internet and high speed connections (I know I sound like an old fashioned grump sometimes but I find it fascinating how things have changed so seamlessly and how the internet has been intergrated into everything so easily…). It seems crazy how a while back when you wanted to know the name of a track you’d have to go through some mental and full on name game type shit… I’m talking about the old old days, early 90′s… So let’s go through the options in this 20th century name game : Read the rest of this entry »

Comic book collecting, the weird world of…

Comic Book Guy

A good while back, a very very good while back – sometime around 1990, maybe ’91 – I was a comic-book collector. A collector, a hoarder, an enthusiast, all of the above. Ardent, and dedicated. I was 10-ish. I spent a whole bunch of money, time, and effort on all kinds of comic-books, first appearances, merchandise, collector cards, the whole deal. But somehow I never became the expert I should have been. I should have been Comic Book Guy , I could have been him. But at that point for me – and this is the first time I’ve admitted this to anyone – it all became more about the collection, the accumulation, and the digging. This is where the hoarder characteristics shine through everything else. I had a keen interest in the drawings and the characters but for some reason I never even bloody read the things. Seriously – even the characters that I was interested in like Lobo and Spawn – I didn’t read one of the comics, seriously. What’s that about? Who knows. All I know is I have a big box of mostly unread comics and a lot of sealed up special editions and unopened box sets. Come with me while I try and find out what the fuck I was doing with my time and money, won’t you…?

Interview with DEAD Magazine…

Hello. This is Buddy. I hope all is well. Alright, I’m going to have to come clean – this is the first proper blog I’ve put together. It’s something I probably should have gotten down with more actively a while back, and I’ve only ever messed with Myspace blogs really. So it’s fair to say my blogsmarts are hella weak.

 

Well, I’m going to try and sort that out – I won’t be relentless and post up my every waking (and sleeping) thought, and I’m still unsure of what a Twitter is, so I’ll get my self limitations on right now. Saying that, I reserve the right to change this at any point. Deal!

 

I thought I’d set it off with this interview that I had with DEAD Magazine over in Germany, around the end of December or so. They’ve had features with Prolyphic & Reanimator, Subtle and B. Dolan in the past, and if you check the site you’ll see how to get it all and whatnot. The interview here is the raw uncut, and I blew the word count the hell up – I know interviews aren’t everyone’s favourite things to do but I’m into them, and it’s cool to have the chance to talk in depth and the person here had put in some time with research and all that. But as you will plainly see here, I go on, and on and on and on… Let it flow, and ya don’t stop…

  

Word to Lana Michele Moorer.
