An Interview with Ghislain Poirier from Maga Bo on Vimeo.

The latest in a series of mini-docs done by self described transnational bass artist Maga Bo. Previous installments include quick chats with Diplo, Daniel Haaksman, DJ/Rupture and more. All really great watches. That seems like a bit of an awkward phrase to us, but we don’t really know how else to put it. Anyway, check out the vids here. And thanks to the fader Attorney Street for the heads up.

taken from the Patton Oswalt myspace blog...

Jason Statham has never been in a great movie.

He's also never been in a boring one.

Statham's profile, collectively, is a promise to you, the weary filmgoer. It's a promise that says, "I promise that you will not FOR ONE SECOND be bored during one of my movies. You won't learn shit about the human condition, or feel a collective connection with the brotherhood of man. But if you give me $10, I will fuck an explosion while a Slayer song plays".

I just watched CRANK on Showtime, and I can't understand how I missed this when it was in theaters.

I'm buying THE BANK JOB and DEATHRACE on iTunes today. After CRANK, Mr. Statham can count on my $10 every time he makes a movie. If someone figures out how to make a movie for $8, and it stars Jason Statham, then they're guaranteed a $2 profit.

I look forward to any new film by Ang Lee, David Gordon Green, Paul Thomas Anderson, The Coen Brothers, Paul Greengrass or Ross McElwee.

And now, Jason Statham. I don't know how much say he has in the films he makes. But I get the impression that he reads the scripts. And if the script doesn't make him want to drive a bulldozer through a cake store, I'll bet he punches the script through a wall.

In fact, my entire stack of Academy screeners would have been vastly improved by the addition of Jason Statham. Here we go:

CHANGELING: Jason Statham plays the kidnapped boy, who immediately beats his kidnappers to death, then fights female assassins on top of a blimp.

CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON: Jason Statham injects the backward-aging man-freak with a Sino/Chilean rage compound, and they fight in lava pit.

DEFIANCE: Jason Statham throws Hitler into a woodchipper, eats the entrails as they fly out the other end, and then shits out Winston Churchill.

DOUBT: Jason Statham drop-kicks the Pope through the core of the Earth, and the Pope's head goes up Meryl Streep's ass and then Motorhead's "The Ace of Spades" plays.

FROST/NIXON: Jason Statham pulls off David Frost's skin, drops him into a tank of sea salt, and then Statham and Nixon rent a limo and drive across country, shotgunning hippies.

GRAN TORINO: Jason Statham glowers at Clint Eastwood, who glowers back, creating a Glower Vortex which destroys the planet.

THE READER: Statham kills the teenage kid with a lawnmower, then fucks Kate Winslet literate.

REVOLUTIONARY ROAD: Jason Statham drives an 18-wheeler full of nitro into the title suburb, blows everything to shit, and then spends 90 minutes hunting down absolutely everyone involved with the making of this film, beating them to death with TV trays.

THE WRESTLER: Jason Statham, Richard Nixon, the 'roided-out Benjamin Button murder-freak, the Churchill feces-baby and Mickey Rourke drive cross country in a limo, with Leo DiCaprio's severed head on the hood, where they crash the Spirit Awards and kill everyone.

There you go. Statham! Full disclosure: I saw Jason Statham eating a salad at Joan's on 3rd, here in L.A. Really, I did. I wanted to say hello, but he seemed like he could chuck an arugula leaf through my skull.

Do yourselves a favor, Academy voters. CRANK 2: HIGH VOLTAGE comes out April 19th. On April 20th, rescind all the voting categories. There should be one statue given out next year -- a 45-foot, sentient Oscar kill-bot, which Jason Statham will fight to the death at the next ceremony.

Statham! Yell it when you're fucking!

wtf, i think i was going to make a point to go to SXSW this year. but here i am, working almost everyday of the first half of this month. so to cut to the chase...cut and paste!!!


Lovitt Records and Slip Productions will be doing a joint showcase during SXSW week. We joined forces because we care about good music and want to share our love with you.
We have been working non-stop to create the best possible show and just as we were about to announce the amazing line up we got the the following communique from The Frodus Conglomerate International:

"2009 has seen the world economy crumble due to the unethical practices of businessmen and corporate oligarchy. The current administration with the assistance of Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve, has reached out to the Frodus Conglomerate International for aid. Calls were made, doors were closed and numbers adjusted. After weeks of vicious negotiation both parties agreed on a proper course of action.

The Frodus Conglomerate International will address the public for the first time in 10 years on Saturday March 21, 2009, at 4:30 pm in Austin, Texas. Austin will be the first of several public forums to address current global conditions forewarned by the FCI in years past. The Conglomerate has employed Liam Wilson of the Dillinger Escape Plan to supply bass guitar for this address while Nathan Burke organizes his North-West Contingency. We are the economic police.

In addition to announcing Frodus playing, we are happy to announce the rest of the amazing line-up! The show will take place on Saturday, March 21st at the Radio Room (508 East 6th Street) in Austin, Texas, on two stages.
The current schedule is:

Stage One

12:15 - The Medications
12:50 - Quieting Syrup
1:20 - Tight Phantomz
1:55 - Pygmy Lush

3:25 – Ben Davis & The Jett$
4:10 - Des Ark

Get there early!

Come out and support independent music and be a part of the best show this year.

Your Friends,

Lovitt Records

ok, that line up looks really really good. ugh.

Slavery in our midsts....

Read an article reposted on today from Gourmet magazine about tomato pickers in the Naples, FL area that have been working under horrible,"slaver-like" conditions for years now. One such story revealed a group of men forced to live in a truck, pay $5 for cold, water hose showers, and threatened to be beaten by their "crew bosses" for being sick, exhausted, or malnourished. We are all very aware of the work conditions set in place for poverty level humans across the globe and even in this country, however, to have such basic slavery right under our noses in our own state is ludicrous.
there is a group called the Coalition of Immokalee Workers that has been campaigning for the rights of these workers for the past few years. the website is
check it out. send our governor an email.
i know that in these times caring for the income and well-being of others isn't necessarily easy, but these people are the ones pulling your fruits and vegetables everyday, making sure Publix has those perfectly red tomatoes in the Winter.
gettin off the soapbox now. atleast check it out. this is a huge part of our state.

Sweaty Palms

Whenever I compete in any kind of video game tournament my palms get all kinds of sweaty. So at the gamestop tournament last week I was constantly drying off my hands on my pants in between matches, gross. Even so I still walked away victorious with some really crappy prizes and a spot in the semi-semi finals this up coming saturday.

Behold the crappy schawg. Yellow head band, wrist bands and a certificate. The tourney had two winners, Me and some asian dude who I think my girlfriend has a crush on. There were a quite a few asian dudes, which whom I defeated much to Connie's surprise. The attendees consisted of black dudes, asian dudes and dorky smelly white dudes. Needless to say gamestop smelled real bad that day. Even if I don't go all the way in this tournament I still plan on going to Evolution this july in vegas. Anyone wanna go? Seriously, I have a hotel room you can stay in, I don't want to be surrounded by nerds the entire week that I am there. Bah.

Two inmates escape from Greek Max. Security Prison...BY HELICOPTER!!!!!

ATHENS, Greece (CNN) -- The director of a maximum-security prison and two of his colleagues resigned Monday after two inmates escaped by helicopter.
Police at Korydallos prison after the daring escape.

The Greek minister of justice, Nicholas Dendias, said he had asked for and received the resignations of the director, security secretary and head of inspection and control at Korydallos Prison, in a suburb of Athens.

"The government will not tolerate the current situation," he said in a written statement. "Those involved in this escape will be brought to justice and punished."

The escape played out like a Hollywood action film.

It began around Sunday afternoon, when two men hijacked a helicopter from Athens International Airport and ordered the pilot to fly to the prison.

The helicopter hovered over the roof of a prison compound where inmates Nikos Paleokostas, 42, and Alket Riza, 34, were located. Rope ladders were unfurled and the prisoners climbed into the helicopter and escaped, the Justice Ministry said.

Prison guards shot at the helicopter during the escape, witnesses told local media. There were no reports of injuries.

The pilot was found gagged near the helicopter north of Athens, a state-run media report said.

The prison break by helicopter is the second from the prison for Paleokostas, who was convicted for abducting a businessman and escaped the first time in June 2006. He was recaptured several months later and returned to the prison.

Investigators searched for the inmates and unidentified accomplices Sunday.

On Monday, the justice minister announced the resignation of Leonidas Karampekiou, the prison director; Foti Vlachou, the security secretary there, and Apostolos Economou, the head of inspection and control at the prison.

BAP. Greetings everyone! Today is a beautiful day! Street Fighter IV comes out today, hopefully. In 3 weeks I will have a vacation from school and Orlando! I imagine that I feel like this guy does.

Everything else is ok, I have midterms all week which suck, but I belong to a really cool semi-secret organization called the bone society thats kind of cool. Are we ever going to get organized? Secret pass-words? A secret handshake that we don't do in public? A set of standards to become a member would be nice, a creed or a motto would also be a good idea. Oh I just realized the kind of people the society consists of, we only get ambitious when we get drunk. Which is fine since it was created under the influence of alcohol. IS ANYONE ELSE GOING TO POST HERE? EVER?.....*exhales*.

Back to the vacation thing, I will be in NYC for a week with the Connie Monster and would appreciate any suggestions for places to visit/eat. As soon as we get off the plane we will probably bee-line for the noodle bar and then proceed to drink and eat until we pass out on the MET. Preston recommends the ninja place so we might try that. I think I might make reservations at the best steak house in NYC. Has anyone eaten there before? Is it worth the price? Anyways, to quote defame "no one reads your blog anyways" so I really don't know why Im asking for feed back, since Rymar stated writing his vagina monologues no one else posts or reads this crappy blog.

Its almost here, one the biggest nerd moments in my life. The release of street fighter IV. Gamestop called me up today to let me know one of my arcade sticks was in so went I down there to pick it up. It is really nice but an even better one is coming out with the game. The controller is nice and heavy, the parts are really responsive, over all a very well designed product. Now I have to wait five more days to use it. Thats not true, I am playing old street fighter as I type this.

It came with a nifty character card that has movelists and play mechanic descriptions, like the ones you would see on an actual arcade machine. I wish it was cordless but its not. Getting use to the arcade stick after so long on the pad is harder than I thought. The last time I was in an arcade was back in october in new york. I have a lot of work cut out for me.

Stop Dickin' Around

Ok, it seems that every site that I visit today has a video of the awesome new invention, the joydick. Apparently you hook said device up to your dong and control the game through masturbation. I know what most of you are thinking, "yes! I can do two useless things at once now and have more free time during the day!". The harsh reality of this product is that most people I know would pull their dick right off with the way they play video games, me on the other hand am ever so graceful and precise that it would probably come second nature to me. Thats what she said.

What you have all been waiting for, pure ass. NSFW! Guess its a little late for that! I did this in the last drawing class I took which was bout 4 years ago. Yep, thats a nude female, the perks of being a serious "artist". Hope you like it, its charcoal on heavy stock, took maybe three to four hours. I gave it to my mom for christmas a couple of years back, and when I went to visit her she had it hung vertically, which looked stupid.

This is Mr. Dick Nose. He's a mask I sculpted out of clay and plaster then painted and added a cute little hat. He is a Tengu mask. If you have been to my house you have probably already seen this, and he is my avatar on the blog. I really like this and wanted to show something other than a drawing. This took about 4 hours and was a lot of fun to work on. Oh and ladies, he is totally single.

Drawings of Old

     First off, I need everyone who reads this to sign up for the Street Fighter IV contest. The winner gets a street fighter 4 arcade machine. You don't have to buy anything, just sign up and give me the machine if you win. DO IT. Their also holding a nation wide tournament held at local game stops (you better win jimmy), which yours truly will be entering, fuck yea. The winner of that also gets a street fighter 4 machine. Ok, time for more drawings.

This sketch was most likely done in 2001-2002. This was one of my first experiments with ink washing. I came to like the technique and have been experimenting with it ever since. I have no idea who the model is but the hand most likely belogs to me.

Hands. I have drawn my hands thousands of times. I like drawing hands, and I was thinking that I might do a series of painted hand gestures. This sketch could be as old as 2000, I don't know. If you can't tell it was done with charcoal, apparently under a very bright light. Until next, when there might be some nudity.

a new level of greatness...

1. if churches bumped like this, i would go there. (if i was into going to church still)
2. i wish church goers were really getting down to drum and bass like this in the clubs.

My New Obsessions.

Why don't i live in Midwest city???


Holy Crap!

I do drawings

I know that I have posted some of my work up here before but as I said in a previous post I want to start displaying some old stuff. When it comes to art I have been seriously neglectful over the past year so I am hoping this will challenge me to get off of my ass and start doing more work. If anyone has any comments, ideas or criticisms (Its my fault I chose the friends I did) feel free share.

This is a really old drawing circa 2001 maybe. It is a 15-20 minute piece done as an exercise that I thought came out alright. Its two overlapping poses. For those of you that have seen my stuff before you know that I separate tones into planes and this is obviously no exception.

This one is was most likely done the same day, or at least in the same class. What really sucks about these sketches is that they are dudes. With their clothes on. No, but seriously you learn next to nothing about drawing the human form when your models have clothes on. I didn't get to do that until a couple years later. And the one model on the left is actual a women. Nude drawings a few posts later.

Keeping up with the resolution

I was about to get ready for work when I realized that I had not made a post in a couple of days. Mark said he would be very angry with me if I did not stick to my resolution. I really have nothing to post about so I will give you guys some links to sites that I find interesting.

First is which is full of art by freelance artists. This stuff is pretty much amazing and really inspiring. Second up is another art site, but this time for a specific artist that calls himself eBoy. His art work is very detailed in the same vein as Geoffry Darrow but with a 10 year old boys sensibility. Ok, I have to go to work and listen to Preston (sorry about the spelling errors) complain about ass-hole customers and watch Henry try to tackle Hudge if he sees him. Bahgwap.

Butternut Reduction

I totally lost it when he says "butternut reduction".

This one is really good also, watch the whole thing.

via Mad Decent


No, not the movie but close to what I currently weigh. Time to get back down to my fighting weight. Im back on the plan that helped me lose 50 pounds 3 years ago; diet and exercise. Don't ask me to go out to eat with you because I will spit salad on you. I think I will give the 100 pushup plan a try and start the couch to 5k plan again. Im also going to try to start going to Aikido more than the once a month that has been the norm for almost 2 years now. I have no idea why I stopped training, I never felt better in my life physically, mentally or spiritually. The diet part will be much easier than the exercise part, plus it will save me money. You do not want to know how much money I squander on eating out.

I got my bike back in working order today so lets go ride. It cost an arm-and-a-leg but it looks and rides much better than before, and no its not a "fixie". Not that I have anything against those types, Im actually friends with tons of trendy fucks young hip people. No but really, anything that can get people out of their cars onto a bicycle is fine by me.

For those that care, the pinhole camera pictures did not come out, Mark thinks the hole is to small. don't say it, just don't. So he will make the hole bigger, (again, keep it to yourself) and try again.

Starting next week I am going to begin to post images from my portfolio of work, for two reasons.

1. Apparently a lot of have no idea that I am an *ugh* artist and that I have been drawing almost my entire life.
2. Feedback. Tell me what you think.

This experiment is hopefully going to motivate me to do more work, regardless of the negative/positive feed back. In theory after I run out of pieces that I want people to see, I will do more because all 10 of you that read this will want to see more..........

now for a topic related video:

The pinhole adventure

Out of chance I ran into my friend Mark today while I was on my way to take pictures for a class project. As it happened he was doing the same thing, except he was doing it for fun and, he had a home made pinhole camera. Mark made had made it himself from a quaker oats can, black spray paint, black duct tape and an aluminum can. Oh yeah and a pin. If your interested here is some instructions and galleries. It took the better part of the day but he took 10 pictures of various locations. Big Hudge is going to develop them tonight in his bathroom darkroom so expect to see the results after I scan them in tomorrow. Im excited. Aside from that it has been a normal day, school, pinhole camera, food, coffee, blah, blah, blah. Oh yeah, I also brought my bike in to get it fixed so my friends would start hanging out with me again.

Oh yeah, Carmelo's spawn should have been surgically removed from his wife a couple of hours ago, its twin time everyone! Congratulations Woptazza your a daddy! I think I will be buying them this in celebration of his journey into the unknown with strange new creatures. Oh yes, we have a new president, here to a new era and to new life! What a great day.

fuck it.

Ok, so I never came up with a resolution this year because I have yet to think of one that I might actually stick to. Until now. I will resolve to update this blog at least once every other day. There, I feel better already. Also, thanks Asa, your trickle of posts have been about the only thing keeping this going, oh that and (not a real site....yet). So lets start today shall we! In local news I have finally been mentioned by Miss Defame herself!

"I wish Face had a better nickname."

Yes! But right above that.....

"I wish that BBQ bar would quit playing live Hip Hop on Thursday nights and just stick with their tried and true jukebox."

Awww....But I like hip hop! Yea hip hop! You sound like Rymar MeghanDefame! I can move on with my life now.

Heres an interesting article for you bike nerds, this new do-hickey, that I am sure Preston will try to pre-order after reading this, projects the image of a bike lane behind you as you pedal. Now only if it would project a giant middle finger instead of a cyclist stencil.

So a few of you I told but just to make it official I would like to announce my new project which will be the construction of something similar to this:

This guy built his own for about $3500, but as you can see he did a double sided cab where in my case it would be only one sided. His monitors are sony HD 40" where as I would just stick with a 32" vizo for half the price. Wish me luck on my ultimate nerd venture. Also, mine will probably not be as near as fancy, or as expensive. Any one know how to model plans in 3D? And on final note, for those of you who do not already know, Rymar has been writing an awesome blog that a lot of mommy and daddies have been reading, so check it out. Well, thats that and now for the mandatory video post:
