Gome of the Week
Bands that sell CD-R's:
You know, we all know how much these things cost, so don't sell me a CD you burned in your bedroom for 5 bucks when it cost you 50 cents.
I understand that you want to get your music out there and maybe you don't have the funds to put out your own CD, but don't charge people for your demo.
I've been burned by burners too many times.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
The Rap Dictionary - A pretty big website that I didn't look at most of. However, there is this section where you can get hip to the newest rap lingo, and that's where this link gets to. Check it, blee.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Yes, you've seen this movie, calm down. But, it's another film that features our hero John Durbin, so it's up here.
It's also full of celebrity cameos by the likes of Weird Al, the Nuge, Lyle Alzado, and Jello Biafra.
And, if you look really hard at the end, you can spot a young Courtney Love spanking an old dude.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Vitapup - An Hour With Vitapup (1995)
Worst band name ever. Pretty to Look At saw these guys open up for Hazel a long time ago and have been in love ever since.
It's their only record, and you should really pick it up if you can find it.
The drummer went on to be in Team Dresch and the Butchies, the guitar player produces records for the Butchies that sound really good, and the bass player had a girlfriend named Shaniqua.
The music doesn't really have a style, so we won't attempt to define it.
This Week's Hip New Slang Word or Phrase
The Beezee Reezee - The hot new way to say the name of the Boiler Room, the CAC's favorite hangout. You can always find some of the Sly Records gang there.
Usage: "Dude, what are we going to do tonight?"
"Dude, let's go to the Beezee Reezee."
"Dude, that would not be untight. There are never any cougs there."
