I Hate the Things You Like: Jim Halpert

Posted in Bad Shit, i hate the things you like on June 23, 2008 by handsuporlando

Dont get me wrong. The Office is a very funny TV show. Michael, Dwight, Andy, Creed, Stanley, and Kevin insight riotous laughter true to the mold of Seinfeld, or Lloyd Christmas hitting Harry Dunne in the back of the legs with a cane (Dumb and Dumber…). For you more indie kiddies, picturing something Zach Braff did in Garden State.

Back to my main point. I do NOT like Jim Halpert. He carries himself in a ‘I’m not cool’ sort of way in which he knows very well he is better then anyone else in the aforementioned office. His smirks at the camera say ‘no one else could have thought of that aside from the great JIM’. Moreover, girls who like him do so because he is ‘cute’, but they cannot seem to distinguish between Jim and John (Krasinski).
His pranks are no more then pedestrian office shenanigans that he may or may not have found in a book from Borders entitled Office Pranks and You. His pursuit of Pam (who I don’t really care for either) has since grown old and tiresome. I find myself wishing someone would maroon them on the island from Lost, or better yet Gilligan’s so I no longer will witness their torrid bore affair. I hope next season Andy looses it, hospitalizes Jim ( NBC/ER crossover episodes?) and puts him out of my misery.
Thoughts? WTF is this, the English Patient?

WALE & WAYNE

Posted in Good Shit on June 19, 2008 by handsuporlando


Wale, the swaggerific DC rapper who doesn’t talk about all the shit he has, but instead about other stuff (go figure) released a new mixtape a few weeks ago. “The Mixtape About Nothing”, modeled after Seinfeld boasts tracks mixed by Nick Catchdubs. Each song is named ‘The ___” like Seinfeld episodes, and features samples from the show, and Michael Richards being racist. It is a good mixtape, check out more over at Wale’s blog, Elitaste.

You can catch him on the Rock The Bells tour (flyer above) in MIAMI with some real dope acts.
And as for Lil Wayne. What is new with him? I do not really know. Is he Jesus? Is he in fact Lil’? I think so on the second one. His album The Carter III is out. Look @ his myspace, its really fucking busy, just like other mainstream rappers. Maybe they can feud over that soon, whose myspace has more shit all over it. BUT BUT BUT I like these songs, so get em NOW! Help! samples The Beatles.

Indie WTF

Posted in Good Shit on June 18, 2008 by handsuporlando

Alright, so ‘Indie’ music generally bores me, BUT, people eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and supper (a small meal that can only be had after dinner… its an english thing. look it up). Usually when I’m looking for music, I browse over indie after a quick listen. No offense, I like more upbeat stuff, and most indie makes me want to nap, and I am highly anti-nap (comments on napping?).

These two bands…groups…what have you, break the nap-inducing mold, so I felt I should expose them to you. Jupiter I found on discodust (where I generally dont get ANY music, but they hit the mark with these cats). I dont know anything about either of these bands, but they sound good.

The Kabeedies are also from Euroland, and are touring in places I am not too aware of. They sound real good, so you should invest time in listening to their jams, since I did. Plus, I think they like Mortal Kombat (werd).

Treasure Fingers, who just recently signed with Fools Gold, teamed up with Kill the Noise (not to be confused with Kill to Win) for the School’s Out Forever Tour.

Treasure Fingers & Kill the Noise – School’s Out Forever!”

This mix is something they threw together for URB Magazine and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to it. It’s 60 minutes of Cut Copy, Para One, Chromeo, Sinden, Boys Noize and the list goes on and on.

Check it out you wont regret it.

What A Crook(ers)!

Posted in busy p, crookers, embrace the martain, to protect and entertain on June 16, 2008 by handsuporlando

Crookers is a duo of maniacs from Italian world. They are ugly as far as I can tell from their myspace, go there and decide for yourself. They also have tour dates, but you hipsters probably spent all your money on a trip to bonaroopalooza or a New York fling to make it to them. ANYWAY, they make some good fucking music. A style unto themselves. They are not really crooks. Or are they? I dont do research like I intended, I just post my opinions on here. Think…bible. All you need to know is…ugly people make good music (Meatloaf and Queen are my other instances).
