Such a sick song. I'm playing a cover of it on Thursday night at Ed's Bar.

New "Coldest Winter" video by Kanye West

From 808's. I love the tribal drums with the static sound... this is a new version of the song.

"Fox in Socks" Dr. Seuss G.O.A.T. rapper?

If Seuss could have gotten together with Dre or someone, they could have done nasty things. The wordplay is on point.

One-man band: Changes by Tupac


Rare photos of famous people

Ok, so yesterday was a bit of a rap day for DYB. Here's something for everyone.

I stumbled across this link this morning... it's a collection of 100+ rare photos of celebrities, mostly pre-1980's. Many of them are the celebrities in their youth or in embarrassing situations.

At left is Paul McCartney.

I watched three movies today

Let's see... a Sunday, no homework to do, and a small amount of hangover? Watching a movie (or three) is always a great choice. And I wasn't about to watch the Pro Bowl.

In the middle of the afternoon I took in Up in the Air, starring George Clooney. This is a great story, it's about a man who spends his life traveling the country and firing people for a living. I don't want to give away anything at all about the plot, because I really do think most people should see this. I'd give it a 8 or 9 out of 10.

After dinner, Theis came over and we watched King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. This was a pretty interesting documentary about world-record holders in classic video games... you know, the Pacman/Donkey Kong/Space Invaders type. It tracks two men in their quest to be the best at Donkey Kong - one, the world record-holder since 1982; the other, a Washington-based science teacher that simply wants to be good at something. The social elements in this were hilarious, as the hero worship of some of these gamers is truly dumbfounding and entertaining. 7 out of 10.

The last movie we watched was Gamer. Jesus Christ, this shit was a trainwreck. It's about a television show in the future where criminals fight each other for eventual freedom. The story was shitty, the editing and quick cuts were nauseating and on an MTV level, and it simply got laughable about halfway through. They played the same Marilyn Manson song twice. Gerard Butler somehow vomits and pisses in a gas tank and gets the truck to start. That should be enough to let you know that this is a 2 out of 10 movie.
