abracadaver - pillows and brushes

if anyone can come up on the other, higher quality version of this, i almost swear it exists out there somewhere! this is one of my favorite songs from when i was living on the Hilltop with my moms.
"i dreamed a pill could kill me, while my pillow held me!"

cliff jumping in columbus, ohio

there's really only two spots i can think of that are close enough to not be a preplanned trip. Runaway Bay Quarry at the corner of w 5th ave and McKinley ave, and this small secluded waterfall off the bottom of O'Shaughnessy Dam near the zoo.
i personally have gone to the quarries since early high school, but in the past decade, so many kids have died drowning up there that they've come down pretty hard on letting anyone get into the property. you have to park across the street and walk into the complex, or figure a way out to swim up to the cliffs from the private condos' beach across the water. and getting in over there is even more complicated. once you do get to the top of the precipice though, you're good to go on a 20 foot jump with no obstructions under the water. if you walk up the side of the quarry a bit, you'll find another couple not so secluded jumpable spots, as well as the highest cliff on the quarry. with about a 40 foot drop, you also have to get a proper running start to avoid the dry rock below as well as a little under water cliff. it seems really intimidating, like most cliff jumps, until you just do it. overall, this trip is worth the hassle.

my favorite spot to go is a fairly new one to me. i can't tell you exactly how to get there as it's fairly secluded and clean and i know the people who frequent it would like to keep it that way. but, go to the O'shaughnessy Dam, and park in the lot that's available for parking, then just walk across the bridge and down into the woods. you have to cross a couple creeks and descend a small waterfall or two, but in a very roundabout way, you will arrive at this ultra-cutty waterfall with jumpable cliffs on both sides. it's not nearly as tall as the cliffs at the quarries, but it's a lot more fun and you don't have to worry much about getting thrown out or ticketed for trespassing. and the addition of the waterfall makes it a lot more relaxing to hang out around. this trip is hands down worth it, provided your wildman waterfall huntin' skills are up to par.

just don't act a fool, or get too wasted and have fun swimming this summer, kids!

camu tao - king of hearts (2010)

the long awaited release from Columbus' finest, camu tao is set to release August 17th, almost two and a half year's after the tragic loss of the local legend to cancer. a lot of people stand tall to say that camu tao was put on this earth to change the shape of hip-hop music. unfortunately, this mission was cut short the spring of 2008 after a two year battle with lung cancer. camu, aka tero smith, left behind a plethora of underground as well as unreleased tracks. it's these unreleased tracks that have been pieced together and mixed down by some of his brethern to shape the Kingdom Hearts album. on August 19th, an album release part is being held at Skully's Music Diner on N. High St. in Columbus, Ohio. This will be an epic event for everyone who knew camu and his music. come out and celebrate!
here's a strip of tracks camu's recorded over the years to get you pumped for the release party.

winnie the pooh see n say

i recorded several dozen loop patterns with this modified winnie the pooh See'N'Say, and layered them over each other in cool edit pro to make this track. indeed, it is several years old, but i still love it everytime i listen to it. winnie, if you're still out there, i miss you.

free art - bristol bar tonight!

fuck the police - 6/23/2010

i just want to say, props to the bands that did make it out to play tonight.
merchant ships, for driving all the way here from home. i believe this was their first show on their first tour. dudes pulled up into a parking lot next to a boarded up apartment building and got out and played hard as fuck. you guys are so much more live than i expected from your recordings. hell yeah!
slipdiver, who's bassist has a broken collar bone, but still manned up and played a kick ass show. who's drummer quit the day of the show, but somehow these kids pulled matt h. out of their assholes like it was nothing. props on your best show that i've seen.
and finally, props to the dudes in thunder bison, whose set got cut off by the pig-mother-fuckin-Os. their singer was itching all night to play and when the time came, the law has to step up and act all hard and cut us off early as hell.

and don't forget all the faces that came out tonight to watch the show. if the cops wouldn't have shown up, we could've got some cheesing-ass last-party-at-the-crackhouse-flics. what the hell are we gonna do now? the crackhouse is gone.

in case you actually give a shit, we have some other stuff coming up in the next month. tomorrow night, Blake Morrison brings his FREE ART show out for the first time to Bristol Bar. it showcases Blake's skills on the canvas as well as his jockey skills on the decks. special guest artist Jon Stommel (the dude who did the murals on the entrance way to Bat Chapters and the sides of Magnolia Thunderpussy & The Chamber/Garden/Joint.

this weekend is comfest! come out friday during the day to kick it with us at VooDoo Denim Lounge for the pre-gaming party Friday, June 25th. starting at 5 PM, we're gonna have Blake Morrison [DJing only], Mike Stone, & Tumms, along with a chance to kick back a couple brews with us before we head down to Outland on Liberty for the Dirty Deeds party. yeah, we got Designer Drugs headlining this year's official ComFest after party!! Nixphonic, Tumms, Digiraatii, & Hot Mess will all be on the bill for the night, bringing you some of the raunchiest and hesh gangster dance beats ever.
also, after you watch the fireworks on July 2nd, come out and kick it with us, DJ Drastic, & the Hometown Villains at Hampton's to get a little bit of that hip-hop soul in your life. we'll be taking over the basement around 10 PM, so come party on King Ave!
if that's not gonna work out for you, come post-up on this booze cruise, on July 31st with us. that's 6 stops on your way to the after party, with live acts still to be announced.
that's about as official as it gets. any other details not mentioned probably aren't resolved. i just want to end this all by saying,
fuck the police.
jiggy's comin!
fuck tha police, yo,
cos i ain't runnin!

Sixth Street Vacant and Disko Doom Productions Present:
D I R T Y * D E E D S

featuring live sets by:
NIXPHONIC [!/pages/Nixphonic/105312409509743?ref=ts]

Columbus's ComFest [short for Community Festival] is the nation's largest free festival. Spanning three days over the last weekend in June every year, ComFest attracts thousands upon thousands of people from around the country to pack into Goodale Park. With several live stages, hundreds of vendors, tons of food and alcohol to fuel it, you'll find it pretty tough to leave unamused by the end of the night. But in case you're on the brink this year, we've got you covered...

Friday, June 25th, come out after the ComFest celebrations for some of the wildest, dirty dance music you've ever heard. Designer Drugs makes a triumphant return to Columbus, in full force to help us remember SUMMER IS HERE!
They'll be man-handling the stage at the quasi-new Outland [on Liberty] and melting your face off with friends MC Johnny Flavor and Ohio's own Jet Black Empire crew featuring duos Hot Mess, Digiraatii, and of course, dat good ol' boy Tumms! Ladies and Gentlemen, this promises to be a night not to forget. Though, if you ever partied with these guys before, you know that sometimes it's the remembering that gets tough the morning after.

And don't forget to join us at Voodoo Denim Lounge [780 N High St] just up the block from Goodale Park on High St. We'll be pre-gaming here with early sets by Tumms, Mike Stone, and Blake Morrison from Texas' Artificial Missile collective. Also, while you're in here, don't forget to look around the shop and see what this new denim boutique has to offer the naked populace. Even challenge the owners to a game of pool if you dare!
