Couldn’t go through the first week without the God MC.

Sorry about the unavailable video yesterday – that’s the danger of YouTube these days. Hopefully, today’s will stick around. Here’s a little gem from an underrated pop album.

High-brow the last two days, so let’s go down-low. (Some NSFW language.)

Seriously, I’m on a huge JEW kick lately.
Interpret that first line however you will…
Want to Gorge on Oscar Nominees? Tuesday, January 29, 2008Posted by Andy Hutchins in Rockabye.
Sure you do. Or at least that’s what AMC hopes.
The idea is good, and it seems to me like the price is right. I know movies aren’t technically my jurisdiction, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be on this beat. I can pretty much promise DeadOn will do something, too.

Maybe my favorite hip-hop track. Period.
The hip is after the hop. (more…)
Your Morning Rock/New Music Tuesday – January 29th, 2008 Tuesday, January 29, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, New Music Tuesday, Your Morning Rock.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but it’s a pretty slow week in new releases. One release does have the musical outlets of Blogfrica abuzz though…
And now its official, every music blog that is, shall we say, “rock centric” has hyped Vampire Weekend. Glad to be of assistance Williamsburg. Surely there are other things coming out, right?

This is where you should go to get the best hip-hop. I hope you come back.
Below, a bit of neo-retro.

The Week That Was – January 27th, 2007 Sunday, January 27, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat.
Ok, so here is something new that I hope to make a regular feature. Lord knows I watch too damn much television at home and spend way too much time with my iPod in my ears at the offices. However, I don’t have to time to offer you a nice full speed review of everything I’d like to, so how about we try out a weekly recap of what I enjoyed and what I hated in the past week. So…let’s get to the jump and hit up The Week That Was…

Hi, I’m Rockabye. I comment on Deadspin as Rock You Like an Iracane, and my blogs are here and there on the Interwebs, though the Blogspot variety is likely to be the main blog if I ever do that assiduously. I approached Jerkwheat about joining DeadOn to write about hip-hop, and you’ll see my daily feature, 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, starting tomorrow. It’s like Your Morning Rock, but not. Also, I plan to review books, games, movies and music in my new feature, One on One; you’ll understand that when I get to it.
But, basically, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any tips or advice, and please do be sure to do your duty in commenting. I look forward to sharing the couch cushion with all of the blogosphere. Thanks.
Gauntlet III Recap – That Bitch is Crazy! Sunday, January 27, 2008Posted by The NY Kid in Fuck You Nibbles, MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.
Welcome, my friends, to the latest incarnation of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge – the Gauntlet III. This season will pit the Rookies (anyone with 1 or 0 prior Challenges) vs. the Veterans (anyone with 2 or more prior Challenges). Sorry this recap is getting up so late – sometimes Real Life takes precedence over the Real World (/Road Rules) – fuck, I’m clever. Join me after the jump for all of the details of the opening episode.

Nice job this week folks. We survived another five days and it’s time for a nice relaxing weekend. See you on Monday.

Yep. That’s right.

Happy Wednesday boys and girls – we’re halfway home. I expect your book reports on Mr. Leitch’s new book on my desk next Wednesday. In the meantime, let’s Morning Rock with a happy little cloud of a song.

Welcome back boys and girls – hope you had a nice long weekend (if you had a long weekend) and are ready for a decent week in new music. But, first, you’re all heading to your local bookstore, correct?
Matt Costa is one of a few new albums that you just might enjoy…but what else? Let’s get to the jump…
Drinking Games: Assassin’s Creed vs. Jack Daniels Monday, January 21, 2008Posted by PQ Crash in PQ Crash, video games.

Hello all, this is PQ Crash and the fine folks at DeadOn have allowed me to partake in their reindeer blogging games. Unfortunately, the writer’s strike has taken its toll on everyone here, and sad to say, myself included. However, when I’m bored beyond creation, I’ve always taken solace in two things: booze and video-games. So, on a bi-weekly basis, I’ll be concurrently reviewing one game and one alcohol for DeadOn. Sometimes the two go hand-in-hand, sometimes one wins out over the other. Which provides more mind-numbing relief? Let’s find out.
This week: Assassin’s Creed vs. Jack Daniels
Um…So Do You Know When Scrubs Is Coming Back On? Friday, January 18, 2008Posted by Shakarean Hutchinson in boooo reruns, SA, Scrubs, TV.
And no, that wasn’t some wannabe catchy title to a post. I’m genuinely asking all of you out there, do you know when Scrubs is going to come back on? Because there had been some articles out there claiming that yesterday was when it was coming back, but if you happen by NBC at 9:30 last night you saw some type of C/D-list Celebrity Apprentice on or some shit like that. I mean, how hard up on material is NBC that they have that going on right now?
Anyway, back to scheduling. There were rumors that the show was going to start next week, and then more saying the show will be back in February. With only five finished episodes left I guess it’s smart to back them up a bit, but it’s the middle of January and sooner or later you’re going to run out of new episodes. Might as well play them now, right? Or maybe that’s my inner junkie coming out. There is only so many Comedy Central and local syndication re-runs of seasons 2-3 I can take.
So if you know when Scrubs is going to start playing their final six episodes (so far) this season, holla at me. Let me know in the comments. And more Scrubs talk, although of the personal project kind, after the jump. (more…)

It’s good to be back kiddos. Have a nice long weekend (if you’re getting one…) and I’ll see you again on Tuesday.
Commercialism — The Intern’s Revenge Thursday, January 17, 2008Posted by Greek McPapadopoulos in Greek McPapadopoulos.
Tags: Commercialism, Running into Walls
Sometimes it’s the little things that make for a memorable commercial. These things may be so little that their existence is purely unintentional, yet are key to you remembering anything about the commercial itself. Usually these little details are hilarious, especially if they represent true cluelessness on the part of the advertiser. The ability to point out such details is a worthwhile trait to have, and as a service I am providing one such example today. Then you will be amaze and astound your friends with your amazing perceptive abilities, and members of the opposite sex will fall down at your feet as they praise your keen observation skills.
All this can be yours, if you continue after the jump. (more…)
