Purse Thursday - Sierra

Purse Thursday is here! This is the second week I am interviewing the purses of women. These women do not know they are going to be interviewed, so catching them and their purse in their utmost natural presence is most important. I'm excited to learn more about the fashions and styles of women, see how much stuff they carry around, and just how clean or nasty they are. Shall we?



Sierra, age 31. Black shoulder bag. 10:45pm Elysian Brewing.

Terry Radjaw: What kind of bag is this?
Sierra: LeSportsac
TR: How long have you had it?
S: I just got it 2 days ago.
TR: A new purse? How fancy, too bad there won't be any dirt dirt in there.
S: I am very organized, my purses are always like this.
TR: Well, let's see what you got inside!
Makeup bag that says "Looking For Trouble"
S: It's not just a makeup bag! It's way more than that!
Inside the make up bag are:
Business cards
Tampons
Dental picks
Perfume
Pen
Nicotine patch
Matches
TR: There's not any makeup at all in there, crazy!
Coin purse
Haiku brand wallet
S: I got this for Australia to keep all my money, cards, and IDs in good organized fashion.
TR: So this was like your own kangaroo pouch?
S: Yes!
TR: Can you tell me a haiku about your purse?
S: A haiku?
TR: Yes. It goes 5,7,5 syllable structure.
S: I know what a haiku is, I just don't have one.
TR: C'mon..
S: Black and Rainbow Fun.
San Francisco, I Love You!
Crossroads Has Good Shit.
TR: Score!
Paul Frank glasses case
Apple
Orange
A bag of salted nuts
TR: Are these items sort of a metaphor for life? You know, apples and oranges. Nuts!?
S: Uhh... sure.

S: That's a really cool feature, huh?
TR: Huh?

Pens
Lighters
Gum
Sunglasses
Another lighter
TR: Would you trade your purse for a Klondike bar?
S: No.
TR: How would you best describe the contents of your purse?
S: After seeing them all, I'd say I'm like a boy scout. I am prepared and ready to go on an overnight trip.
TR: I thank you for your time.

Purse Thursday - Gillian

Purse Thursday is here! Every week I am going to be interviewing the purses of women.

P Smoov VS God

It's that time of year. Everyone's favorite totally pointless competition is here. The Championship of Balls Championship. P Smoov had a massive victory in the 1st round against Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse. This time he is facing up against a more worthy opponent: God. Sure God walks on water, but P surfs on crowds.

We are Out For Stardom, we think we should win everything. So here's 10 reasons to vote for P Smoov.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

1. God has more fans. Underdog factor.
2. If you don't follow P, he won't condemn you to an eternally burning hell.
3. P gets more tail than God.
4. God's beats are wack.
5. P Smoov actually exists.
6. God created overpopulation. P Smoov is pro-choice and all about contraceptives.
7. God hates the gays. P has some of his wildest nights on the town with his homo buddies.
8. God doesn't know where to find the really good drugs.
9. P is vegan and loves his furry friends. God is sacrificing lambs left and right and only saved a few of each animal in that big flood he sent.
10. P is all about protecting the environment. God's gunna destroy the earth in a lake of fire and destroy all who are not sanctified by the blood of Jesus. God makes British Petrol seem like Green Peace.

Now go vote for P Smoov here.

Dash EXP - King Of Rock EP

Dash EXP is a hardworking upcoming producer from the Northwest. Based in Seattle he has been producing for years and even competes in live laptop battles. Recently his sound caught the ears of BRAP DEM! RECORDINGS with a bass soaked, abstract, take on 140 bpm. Dash EXP is a real breath of fresh air in the current banger addicted Stateside Dubstep music scene. His production shows technical knowledge, soul, and maturity. KING OF ROCK builds on the minimal intro, then drops into a rocking, bass shaking, purple tinged, synth workout for an infectious body and head bobbing feel. DOWNLOAD HERE

Tattoo

So a friend of a friend sent me this picture saying her friend is getting this tattoo for two reasons: 1. Because he is entering the Army and 2. Because he loves Mad Rad. Cheers to this guy for not only supporting good music, but also this country. We wish him nothing but good fortunes out there.



Which now leads me to ask.. Which member of Mad Rad's face would you get on your body? Leave comments below.

Helluvastate - Brain Champagne

God damn! I want this song to be 2 minutes longer. It ended right when I was ready to lose my mind. All I want to do now is smoke weed and make music. "Adventures in a Helluvastate is an organic experiment, combining rich and wavy instrumentals with the unrestricted thought flow of the emcees. Helluvastate drops March 22nd, 2011."

Lo-Fi and Epic. I Want Your Blood live at Neumos.

Sound is shit. Picture is bad. But the vibe is legendary.

Jahon Mikal - The Medulla Transmissions

Been bumping this since last week, and it puts me in a great mood. The music is so melodic yet sometimes spaced out, sometimes african, sometimes raw. Great work, Jahon! Also, which is great to see, and sometimes missed when you listen to projects is what it takes to make a project. Some great personal insight into how the album came about HERE.

The Physics - Fix You

Man, I have really been playing the shit out of this lately, and sad I forgot to blog it earlier. These fine gents have been putting out such beautiful music as of late and glad to see it continue into their new work. I must say, I am sad there isn't a 16 by Thig on here but I suppose I'll have to wait for the next one.

KJ shoots Dumb Eyes

Two my favorites work together. Kyle Johnson once again captures someone in this city brilliantly. I love that he conveyed the guys of Dumb Eyes in their own element and similar to their style.


Dumb Eyes was last seen on the blog doing that Beat Connection video, but you can catch them at their PENETRATION monthly at The Bus Stop, or is it still at The Unicorn? I'm so dizzied by these effects I cannot think straight!

Along with VCC dropping their record via Members Only, Metal Chocolates will be dropping 100 limited edition Metal Chocolate gift boxes... more details to come on that!

Rodney King

I like the video much more than the song, but thought it goes well with all the bullshit that's been happening in Seattle lately.

RED EPIC CAMERA TEST

So this is some test footage Billy Summers and I got earlier this week, using RED's new top shelf camera, the EPIC. We shot all of this footage in about an hour using only available light and shooting at an ISO that would destroy an image on any other camera other than film. There's a direct OFS relation to this camera. I'll be using it to shoot Mad Rad's "The Machine" music video. Takes a Machine to shoot a Machine.

Rodney Mullen 1984

Since we still on some Japan shit, I figured I'd show you this video from '84 with my favorite street skater Rodney Mullen. It's like dancing on ice with wheels on a summer day with high socks yet MJ would be proud. Oh lord!

Look At Angie Now

Angie Mar kills this lip sync on Busta's verse. This is my jam right now but watching her spit it, is fucking awesome.
