Friday Recap - from one dude

At about 3:00am I think Wednesday night I was watching BET Uncut and a video a song called "Smoke With Me" by a group called The Firemen came on. It was your usual BET Uncut video, probably shot on that dude who always has the camera's camera, with random girls bootie clapping, random party scenes, and even a couple shots in a cigar shop (its all about that smoke in case you didnt come to that conclusion). The song itself honestly wasnt terrible (wasnt good either), the beat was decent (that old drum machine sound with no real progression or changes, but hey, if the neptunes can, why cant The Fireman?...actually maybe I should remind you that it was 3:00am with the volume down and I was falling asleep) but what kept me watching was the appearance of the one and only Teck Money. For those who don't know he was the wild, out of control, obnoxious dunn on The Real World Hawaii who did everything from try to steal girls from their lesbian girlfriends to freestyling with his drunk Hawaiin roommate Ruthie at the most random times. After doing one season of Real World vs. Road Rules and being the first host for MTV's Direct Effect, Teck just kind of disappeared. Well ladies and gentlemen, he's back, and it appears that our boy Teck has decided to try to make a career out of his making party songs about smoking weed and partying with girls. At least he's being original by wearing the hard baseball hats in the video (he looks as convincing as Flav in the viking hat).

My dude bboy posted a little blog on his profile involving one of these cartoons. Upon reading his post I remembered how much I liked collecting these little religious weirdo cartoons and I did a little google research hoping that someone had archived these things on the internet. The internet did not disappoint as I found the main page for one of the biggest distributors of all things creepy and religious Called "tracts" (n. A leaflet or pamphlet containing a declaration or appeal, especially one put out by a religious or political group) apparently most stem from a gentleman named Jack Chick who has been using his artistic powers to help promote his Christian views via the good old cartoon pamphlet for who knows how long. While I am not an overly religious person, I respect any person's right to worship and believe as they please but these are just, well, somewhat unsettling yet pretty amusing (peep the one called "The Traitor" where the main character looks exactly like everyone's favorite stretching hindu Dhalsim from Street Fighter 2).

Lastly I would like to big up a show Ive been listening to for a while called Big Things with DJ Ripsta and J-Fresh on 88.7 WJCU every Thursday night. Playing everything from local Cleveland talent to Juelz Santana to hilarious Foxy Browns diss tracks to on air freestyle competitions, Ripsta has yet to disappoint. Following in the steps of DJ G-Spot, Ripsta is making a name for himself on the college radio and I would take his show anyday over that corporate noise. So if youre from Cleveland, check 88.7 every Thursday from 6:30 to 9:30, and even if you're not from Cleveland, you can listen to it via the internet at
Oh, and in the YOU HEARD IT HERE AT SUPPOSED TO BUBBLE FIRST news, Paul Wall is coming back to Cleveland at Peabodys either July or August. That shit is literally hot off the presses so check back here for more info sissies.

Go see Star Wars.
