Sixtoo/DJ Signify/P-Love/Matt Kelly

Dammit, last night's show at the Pyramid had me walking on cloud 9. Mellow vibes and dark beats aplenty. Don't front, muhfuckers, this is a dope show! And when they hit your town, if you enjoyed the show, buy some fuckin' merch. They need to eat, y'know!

My God...check the latest addition to the bigcuties.com fam: Deeva! Could someone hit me off with some cash so I can join?

List of Props

  • ...to Sarah, for being so fuckin' awesome.
  • ...to all the folks at gigposters.com for being so supportive when I need 'em to be.
  • ...to Darklady, for writing positive "chubby chaser" porn reviews for AVN.
  • ...to Mood Ruff for this year's Peg City Holla, and to all the folks that performed.
  • ...to Mister Reusch for continuing to do what he does. Y'all gotta cop his Jellyroll pin-up book when it drops, kid.
  • ...to mcenroe and the whole P & C camp for doing the rap thang in this city for so long. Winnipeg's about to do big things, y'heard?

Some clarification for yo' ass...

I'm pretty sure some cock puppet called me a 'nigger' while passing by in his pick-up. Let's get one thing straight...

I'm not a nigger. I'm a motherfucker.

That's right...a MOTHERFUCKER.

That dude was pissed because his moms can't leave me alone. Hey, what can I say, dude? She's a fiend for my crotch rocket. I can only accommodate her addiction 'cuz she's so "good to the wood". Now really, she's a grown woman, man! Don't get so uptight. Now, the bitch you should really be watching out for is your sister, 'cuz she's been trying to catch some Mandingo lovin' from yours truly. But don't worry, I'd never touch the slut. Your moms and I have an exclusive arrangement. I've retained all international video rights, too. Gee, I guess that makes me a smart nigger.

But really, don't get it twisted, y'all. It's simple math:


Thank you.

Peg City Holla Aftermath

Damn...what a weekend! Sarah and I decided to have a little weekend to ourselves (since school is starting up for the both of us soon) , so we got a room at the Radisson Downtown. It was just what we needed. Great service, a decently-sized room, and at a good price. I gotta give Sarah props for putting up with all the late nights due to the seventh annual Peg City Holla. This year, we were celebrating our own: Friday's event was dedicated to ten-plus years of rap releases in Winnipeg. The night started off with some of the city's younger acts taking the stage, but it was all about the four groups that put Winnipeg on the radar: Shadez, FrekSho, Mood Ruff, and Farm Fresh. Wanna see some pictures? I'm sure you do. Go HERE. If you check the Vinylist Jam, you might see a familiar face.

I just wanted to highlight a weblog that I think is fantastic: POP77. It's the online home of Spacecadet Design co-founder and Red River College instructor Chris Whitford-Pointon. I wish my weblog was as dope as his.

Uh...Some Porn-Related Things

  • I'm pretty sure I've mentioned just how handy(ahem...) the IAFD is. Yup. I think I may actually seach for every porn flick I've seen.
  • I recently stumbled upon Fleshbot. Now that, my friends, is an entertaining site!
  • I was delighted to find out that AVN also reviews "chubby-friendly" flicks. Some of them quite favorably!

That is all.

Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story DVD

Holy fuck, is this thing good! I'm just about halfway through Disc 2 (I've got the Owen Hart tribute match to finish) , but I know that the whole thing rules from top to bottom.
Actually, now that I think about it, there are a few things that I would have changed:
  • Stampede footage: as far as I'm concerned, this is a no-brainer. Maybe they were worried about the condition of the footage, or maybe the couldn't secure the rights, I dunno. But really, how can you tell his story without it?
  • Mexico footage: Again, there was none. It's probably not integral to his career story, but hey, y'all mentioned Mexico on the packaging, man! Throw us a fuckin' bone.
  • Todd Grisham: Seriously, I like the guy. The thing is, I'm sure the WWE could've found someone better to do the alternate commentary with Benoit and Dean Malenko. I mean, goddamn it - I think I know far more about Japanese pro wrestling than this dude! It's like that Pegasus Kid/Liger match was the first Japanese match he had ever seen! Do yer homework, Todd. Don't get me wrong...some of the folks that'll pick up this DVD set might be total neophytes to puroresu, so Grisham might've been perfect to provide that kind of perspective. The thing is, Grisham comes off as a total bonehead asking Benoit and Malenko the same questions. Other than the fact that he was a part of it, the alternate commentary was pretty good.
  • Entrance music issues: Either they couldn't get the rights, or they didn't think it was necessary, but they omitted not only Benoit's Pegasus Kid/Wild Pegasus theme, but Liger and Sasuke's themes as well. Did they think we wouldn't notice? Fuck, give us a little credit. While I'm on that, they must've thought we were pretty dumb to think Chris has had the same theme music through his WCW to the present. Where's my "rolling eyes" emoticon?
  • No Benoit vs. Jericho '95 or Benoit/Jericho tag title victory: Huge oversights in my opinion. But hey, it's not up to me, right?

Yeah, I think that pretty much sums it up. Otherwise, I fully recommend it. Might I add that Chris has the best haircut of his career? Word.

Friday Night, Baby...

I'm just chillin' at the Osborne Cyber Cafe, doing the 'net thing. Currently in
my ears is "The Long Goodbye" by A Girl Called Eddy. I like it. She's got a sultry voice. I originally went to Anti's website to find out why Exclaim! was diggin' on Danny Cohen and got
sidetracked by news of a new Tom Waits album on the way! I love shit like that.

I'm glad this place has computers equipped with RealPlayer because I finally got to listen to some new stuff coming from Peanuts and Corn: Peanuts and Corn - Tape Hiss (1993-97) and the Break Bread EP. Yeah, I make a huge fuss about everything these muhfuckers do, but for good reason. Give a listen to "Grown Ass Men" from the EP and tell me if I'm lying. Nyahh!

In other news: My credit card limit was upped recently. I'm fighting off temptation at every turn. Online stores are beckoning, "spend, spend, SPEND!" Not good.

Mo' Quick Notes

- I'm alive!
- I love America for it's peanut butter-related items. Thanks to Sarah's recent visit, I had the pleasure of trying out Overload. Damn good.
- My latest thang for the Tastes Like Chicken sketchbook is up. Go to "current issue", then scroll down and click on the sketchbook.
- I'm still an unrepentant ass-man.
