I found Tumblr, and I've pretty much been focusing on that lately. Check it out at Cheese Wagstaff.

All videos that I find cool will be posted on my new "Chill" account. See that one here.

Also look at my for more links if you think I am an interesting person.

New Frank Ocean? Yes, please.

Well, relatively new. I hadn't heard it yet.

It's been a month without internet.

In mid-August, the internet got turned off at the place I was subletting. We still don't really have internet at the new place... at least not wireless. I'm posting this after plugging my laptop in through ethernet.

So, I apologize. But I really do want to get back to posting sweet links and videos, and there is a future for DYB!

In the meantime, dig this INCREDIBLE acoustic version of Frank Ocean's "Swim Good":

Death Grips - Beware

This video is honestly out of control. Very cool... not sure if I can rock with the music, though.

Tuesday, July 12, 2011


After spending an interesting night at the Kitty Cat Klub, I strolled down 4th street on my way home. I passed a guy named Chris who was holding a sign saying the usual; hungry, homeless, veteran. I asked him if he wanted a slice of Mesa pizza. He jumped up pretty fast.

Anyways, after Chris got his pepperoni slice, he told me his story. Apparently he served in Kuwait in the early 90's as part of the Desert Storm Operation, and like many other veterans he continues to suffer from PTSD and various other mental hauntings. He and his dog travel around the midwest as drifters.

The reason I'm writing this post is because of Chris' last words to me. I asked him if he had any advice for me, what would he say?

He said, "man... look at these people (points at the college kids in line at Mesa). All they know is texting and Facebook. They've never been anywhere. They've never had the blood of innocent people on their hands. That'll do something to a man."

Best names in college basketball

The Preseason All-Name Team - Storming The Floor

It's from 2009, but it's still great. "Just-in'love Smith" has to be the best one.

Eau Claire Regis' Connor Miller can dunk

Over in local Eau Claire, Wisc., a young man named Connor Miller has been dunking all season for tiny Regis high school... and I just recently stumbled across these clips. Good stuff for a 6'3" high schooler. Miller is headed to D1 Samford next year.

Frank Ocean's "We All Try" video

I'm crazy about the song, but not so much about the video.

I also FINALLY fixed the font on the banner to look the way I want. +1

"The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia" (2010)

I am in the middle of watching this documentary tonight; yes, it's 3:39 a.m., but I can't stop watching this. It's hard to describe... so just watch the trailer.

While watching, it really helps to have the White family directory on hand.

Crazy "Battles" fan video

Kreayshawn... next Odd Future member?

In only a few days, I've seen this girl mentioned a couple times as a rising "hype rapper." Message boards are buzzing about at least a collaboration with OF... also note the "WOLF GANG" tattoo at the end.

See for yourself:

Twitter, Facebook explode in wake of bin Laden's death

Click here to read a good story from CNN (via my boy Shmi) on Twitter's surplus of tweets yesterday night.

When I initially heard the news, I knew that a shitstorm of social media (namely Facebook statuses) was imminent. According to the article above, over 5,000 tweets per second were being sent out at Twitter's peak last night. Unbelievable. I haven't seen anything like this since the 2008 Presidential Election.

It's crazy how connected we are.

Death Wish week on AMC

This is unbelievable... Death Wish week!

There's nothing better than watching Charles Bronson get revenge on drug-addled street gangs. Apparently AMC is playing a marathon all week. Click here for their rankings of the five movies... I would have to say that I disagree. My favorites (most entertaining) are probably 1. DW3 2. DW4 3. DW2 4. DW5 5. DW1. The original Death Wish is the only one that has any sort of cinematic value, which makes it the least funny installment.

Tune in to AMC this week and get a taste of street justice.

Alternative covers for "100 Percent"

I had way too much fun making these.

Finally: 100 PERCENT

Yesterday I released "100 Percent" onto Bandcamp for downloading. This is the culmination of three years of recording beats and picking the best 14. I am very happy with the finished product, and I hope that you all will check it out and give it a listen.

The beattape is available for free download on my Bandcamp. Anyone wishing to record vocals over any of these songs may do so; please credit me (Papa Con) when doing so. Thanks.

New band that I am digging: Secret Colours

Psychedelic rock. Check out their Bandcamp page... coming to Minneapolis' Kitty Cat Club on 4/23. I was always sort of intimidated by that place.

Girls basketball

I may have posted this before... but it was irresistible.


For the last week I've been unable to connect to Blogspot! I finally got in today. Of course I had a bunch of videos that I wanted to post, but I have now forgot what those were...

I often wish that I would have started this blog on Tumblr instead of Blogspot! I like their designs a LOT more. Does anyone know if I were to switch, is there a way to move my posts over?

Meat salad

One of the first car commercials to make me laugh

I hate 95% of commercials I see. Some, like Miller Lite's ads (with the dragon pants/skinny jeans), can actually make me angry upon viewing.

My roommate Q showed me this commercial and it made me "LOL." So reckless!

Full-length movie ("The Trashmaster") made using GTA4

Daft Punk on artistic freedom

"We've got much more control than money. You can't get everything. We live in a society where money is what people want, so they can't get the control. We chose. Control is freedom.

"People say we're control freaks, but control is controlling your destiny without controlling other people. We're not trying to manipulate other people, just controlling what we do ourselves. Controlling what we do is being free.

"People should stop thinking that an artist that controls what he does is a bad thing. A lot of artists today are just victims, not having control, and they're not free. And that's pathetic. If you start being dependent on money, then money has to reach a point to fit your expenses."

- Thomas Bangalter, Daft Punk

RATATAT: "Drugs"

What a unique video. The editor took generic stock footage (companies put this stuff in commercials for pills, infomercials, etc.) and just slapped it together. It's so funny when taken out of context!

Great article on Aaron Rodgers

Doubt Aaron Rodgers at your own risk
Gene Wojciechowski [ARCHIVE]
January 3, 2011
Comment on this story

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If there's one thing you should know about Aaron Rodgers, it is this: He plays to stick it to anybody and everybody who had the nerve to once doubt him.

You don't think he's noticed what a nightmare season it's been for a certain NFL quarterback in a certain other city? You don't think he's watched that painful, very public downfall with interest -- and maybe with a slight I-told-you smile?

Rodgers is all about getting even, proving that he was right and you were wrong. It's a useful tool in this league, and it's partly why Rodgers' Green Bay Packers are going to the playoffs while that beleaguered quarterback in that other city isn't.

But the other quarterback isn't Brett Favre. Favre is the last reason Rodgers spent the longest 4 hours, 35 minutes of his life stuck in the green room of the Jacob Javits Center in April 2005. In fact, without Favre and his annual career indecision, Rodgers' agonizing NFL draft day wait might have lasted even longer.

No, Rodgers has a jones against his boyhood favorite San Francisco 49ers, who chose Alex Smith with the No. 1 pick that year. Smith got the huge contract, the first photo op with then-NFL commish Paul Tagliabue and a personalized jersey to hold for the cameras. Rodgers got nationally televised humiliation as he dropped from the potential first overall selection to the 24th. When it came time for him to finally pose with Tags, someone hurriedly handed him a Packers jersey -- with no name on the back.

"It was brutal watching that," said Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, who was drafted a year later. "Obviously we see what kind of resolve he has."

Resolve is a nice way to put it. The truth is that Rodgers was insulted then and remains insulted now. He hides it well, but Sunday's wild-card game against the Philadelphia Eagles is another chance to pour a box of Morton into the Niners/Smith draft day wound.

"I did watch when Aaron didn't get drafted early," Packers running back Ryan Grant said. "I do remember Aaron sitting there. … He's definitely got a chip on his shoulder. That's what you want."

The chip was on display immediately after the Packers chose him in 2005. You know what he told reporters? "I still think I'm the best quarterback in this draft," he said.

Six seasons later, he's right. He's way better than Smith, who has never reached the playoffs, never had a winning record and never kept the starting job two full seasons in a row. Smith is going on his third head coach and another offensive system.

And Rodgers was right about the 11 other quarterbacks who were taken in that draft. None of them -- not Jason Campbell, Kyle Orton, Matt Cassel, Andrew Walter, Derek Anderson, Ryan Fitzpatrick, etc. -- is within a Lambeau Field of Rodgers' talent and stats.

"It just didn't make sense that a player like this would drop like this," said then-first-year Packers general manager Ted Thompson at the time.

It didn't make sense to Rodgers, either. Still doesn't. (Retrospective question: Would Thompson have taken Smith had he dropped to No. 24?)

Rodgers is driven by that draft day snub, by all snubs. He vowed he would exact some form of revenge on each of the 23 teams that passed on him. In his three seasons as a starter, Rodgers has beaten nine of the 23, including San Francisco twice.

The Niners shouldn't be offended. Rodgers has a long history of carrying grudges. He was ignored early in his career at Pleasant Valley High School in Chico, Calif. He received exactly zero Division I, II and III scholarship offers out of high school. Cal signed him out of junior college, but it was more accident than great scouting.

When he arrived at his New York hotel for the 2005 pre-draft functions, a fan asked, "Hey, Alex, will you sign this?"

Packers center Scott Wells saw that draft unfold on TV. He said he felt sorry for Rodgers, "but I was happy to get him here."

Without Rodgers, the Packers would be a subcompact car with leather seats. Without Rodgers, said Jennings, the Packers "would probably [be] watching next week."

Instead, they'll travel to Philly to face a team they beat in Week 1 -- pre-Michael Vick As Starter. And with each playoff appearance and each win, Rodgers puts a little more distance between himself and Smith. And Favre.

Still, nothing has come easily for the Packers this season. Grant's season-ending ankle injury in September (and no real replacement) has crippled the Packers. Rodgers is the team's second-leading rusher in 2010. Against the Chicago Bears in Sunday's play-in win, he led Green Bay in rushing -- with 21 yards.

Rodgers has played hurt, and if it were up to him, he would have played woozy. He has suffered two concussions this season, the second one costing him a start at New England. The Packers lost.

He is the only indispensable Packer. He is what Favre used to be and what the 49ers hoped Smith would become.

Rodgers and the Packers have squeezed their way into the playoffs despite losing six starters to injuries from the season's beginning. Fourteen Packers are on the injured reserve. Yet they've won 10 games, including essentially elimination games against the Bears on Sunday and the New York Giants the week before that.

"I think it says a lot about the kind of men we've got from the top floor down," Rodgers said. "Guys made tough decisions, and we've stuck together, followed our coaches and believed in each other. I think it says a lot about the guys who stepped up."

This is Rodgers' team and Rodgers' town. And in many ways, 2005 turned out to be Rodgers' draft. He sat behind Favre for three seasons, but he was planning even then. Just ask Jennings.

"I remember when I got drafted here," Jennings said. "I walked into the cafeteria -- and had never met the guy a day in my life -- and the first thing he said to me was, 'It's going to be you and me sometime in the future.'

"And here we are in the future."

The future continues Sunday against the Eagles. As always, Rodgers will be there with a point to prove.

First post of the new year: "THE LITTLEST QUINCY"

Welcome everyone to a new year. As the first post of 2011, I'd like to present to all of you my newest musical venture: "THE LITTLEST QUINCY".

TLQ is a beattape EP that I produced almost entirely during a massive blizzard. There was nothing else to do other than make some music.

Trevor Woggon helped a lot with the keyboards on a few tracks. Look out for "100 PERCENT," coming soon!
