Seems that my old host has lost all my files from so many years of keeping this blog… For long time fans, and possible new fans: please find me at ::  my relaunch of the former… I hope you enjoy what is to come…

Oh, the urge to kill somebody was basically overwhelming
I had such hard blues down there in the supermarket queues
And I had a sudden urge to become someone,
someone like you
Who started out with less than anyone I ever knew

-Nick Cave

Official launch of the new product is coming soon, thank you to everyone who has stuck by year after battling year…. I hope you enjoy what is to come…

Sorrow found me when I was young,
Sorrow waited, sorrow won.
Sorrow that put me on the pills,
It’s in my honey it’s in my milk.
It’s only about half a heart alone
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
‘Cause I don’t wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

-The National

Bad rapper!

February 17, 2012

This is why I don’t stress about wanna-be rappers that rip me off. This is the “rapper” that I made an amazing video for, and which he removed the copyrights off of, which broke the contract between us. Instead of doing the adult thing, like put the credits back on his video, he chose to leave the video as is, leading to youtube removing the video for copyright violation.

Not to mention that this man lies about being apart of “Def Jam Records” and sucks so bad that he steals tracks off of sounddogs, and makes up his own label that he is the only artist for, and is momma/sister has to pose as his manager. I wonder how many child support payments he missed paying cause he spent all his momma/sisters money on a music video?

So as you can see, other than taking money from my family, copyright infringement, and acting like a child… his other hobbies include assault, trespassing, and cruelty to children.

What a waste of a human being.
