Now! (in a Cosby manner . . .)

I humbly submit this 2nd offering of various songs in mixed format from Peven Everett's many albums.

This go round, I used the more 'soul' and 'jazz' inspired tunes in the blend. A few of these are lesser known like "Picallo" & "Bank Vault" which my homegirl slide me off of a 'Swing Dirty Dirty" 3 song EP.

Hats off to Peven Everett for being gifted and prolific in sharing his ideas and music with the world! That's Colderthanarat@ss!

I'm feeling Lucky this Go Round

I try and attend the annual Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles with consistency.
Over the past several years though, I've been slacking on my mackin'.
This is mainly due to the increase in the cover price for each screening.

I was fortunate enough to make it to 2 screenings this year and I caught hold of a new gem in film. Now normally before the festival, I kind of: read thru the film descriptions, pick an interesting flick and hope for the best with mixed results . . .

I changed my mind from seeing a domestic feature at the last minute and followed the line into, JERUSALEMA


In certain terms, it's an up to date New Jack City. While in more proper ways, the film is an eye and mind opening tool for everyone who wants to know anything about post-Apartheid South Africa.

Make an effort to check it out when it's in your area! It's Colderthanarat@ss!

Time To Come Clean With Them Tight @ss Jeans!

There's been enough lip service and internet 'thuggin' around supposed 'homo' artists and styles these days.

Now there's a short film which addresses it and it looks interesting.

I Love dialogue about these type of issues if it's constructive.


The Youth Speak on it!

C/L++ + from preAMP+ on Vimeo.

A little added comedy and randomity for discussion . . .

Julio might be Nuts But Barack has BALLS!

G-d Bless Julio, he was so excited and a bit 'off the hook' at this town hall meeting.

You gotta love his bootleg Dr. King/Obama shirt though. I always though those joints were hood 'official'.

Here, The President shows exactly why he's effective.
This is the first time I can think of hearing a televised political speech that hasn't sounded somewhat scripted or just phony in general.

The way he ends his speech is classic and I'm proud of Barack regardless of what cornball "KRS1diot" can conspire to say.

Black Excellence is Dynamite

I want to congratulate my brothers; Suckapunch and AJ of DP Sound along with Michael Jai White for the successful Sundance negotiation and sale of their film Black Dynamite.

I just watched this interview which confirmed one of my greatest curiosities about how people will react and respond to this movie.

Here, David Poland, the interviewer and presumably a 'white guy' makes comments during his interview referencing 'bitches' and 'malt liquor' as if that's the essence of the blaxploitation ethos represented in the piece.

I'm just hoping this doesn't turn out to be another example of certain folks laughing at the wrong parts of the film and missing the significance of others.

For the rest of my people, enjoy. The Action is Awesome and the film is Colderthanaratsass!

" . . . yeah KANE!!!"

One of the BEST to ever do it, revolutionize it, wear purple and Madonna it!!!

I saw it last night and got to meet KANE briefly.

Shout out to Dan Ubick of Connie Price and the Keystones who are rocking with KANE all over the planet.

I would think Kool G Rap is next up for recognition?!
