New thing in the Little Shop of Awesome alert!
It's a beautiful limited edition high quality massive 10" x 10" PRINT of the Manga Music sleeve, rendered by my fair hand in Photoshop with a Wacom DT-520. The thing comes with a matte finish for the non-refelecting, and a nice white border for the framing. Each print comes signed and numbered.
Get yours now! And there's only a few Thunderchrist and Broke prints left also! So get in!
Yeah. You can get a look at the thing on video in my new VLOG, which is coming up in 5, 4, 3, 2...
Pow! Yes. I am being pretty good at this regular Vlogging thing. Today's includes an instructional guide to WAXING ONE'S MOUSTACHE... which I hope you find useful. I also ask a question at the end, which is an important one: is it disrespectful to swang up at a wedding rocking the Candy Coated Drop Kicks?
I am starting to think it might be disrespectful not to... I would have been honoured to see these at my wedding. They are the finest shoes in the known galaxy.
Anyway. I dunno if you noticed, but my last Vlog - that one where I was getting ranty about Prometheus Space Jesus theorising in my pink towel dressing gown - racked up a crazy 11,000 views in a week, thanks in no small part to the efforts of some newly acquired haters. This was, hilariously, my most divisive video ever, and it racked up 11,000 views in a week. That equates to a whopping $14.30 in ad revenue, which just about covers my new glasses, bought to replace the ones the ocean took for me out in LA the other week.
Speaking of Prometheus, the film's linguist has revealed what David The Face Bending Android said to that big Voldemort looking space jockey at the end. It was not, as I thought, "rip my head off and beat that Biff Tanner looking ass old weirdo to death with it then go make sweet love to a giant squid," but something far more pedestrian and lame: "This man is here because he does not want to die. He believes you can give him more life."
Well, more life can lead us into the news that I'm reissuing my entire (legal) back catalogue, so you'll be able to cop all my old shit on iTunes and Spotify and all those other legal channels of modern muzak consumption. I'm getting some of it remastered - some of it never got properly mastred in the first place - but I'm not re-recording or mixing anything, much as it pains me to listen to my youthful naivety and mistakes, as that would ruin the purity of those recordings. I have had to adjust some of the art, mind you. My first EP, for example, was initially a CD, and thus has recatngular, not square, art.
I can also confirm that the long awaited Full Metal Alchemist video, co-starring my Denver brother Time, will drop on the same day as the new season of Breaking Bad: July 15th.
I COOK! I CHEF! I WALTER WHITE!
Shout out everyone using my music in their Youtube videos! It is the ultimate sign of respect in the modern age! That and uploading one's records to Youtube.
Speaking of which, expect a lot more activity in that area coming up very soon.
OK, over and out, I have beats to lace, and a wedding to go to. In case you hadn't noticed from all the big ass squares, the nice ass camera in my shiny new HTC One X has had me going ham on Instagram lately (username akirathedon, obvs)... even if I am still cut off for running up an £800 phone bill in Yankland (which I am contesting bitterly!). I am merking that shit on wi-fi. All of them end up on my secret Tumblr, so check that shit if you need more DON in your life.
PS - the homie Eddie Argos is moving house and has found a bunch of ill stuff he's selling on his blog, check it out. PPS - That Judge Dredd trailer looks ass, but it did remind me that one of the many ill things about the OG Robocop movie was they dubbed his mighty footsteps with an 808 kick drum. You might wanna consider that, movie people. Just a thought. Just planting seeds.
