recently hosted a fan contest for whoever made their best music video version of Colette’s single “If”. The winner was chosen and awarded $500 and Colette’s complete catalogue. Congratulations! Here’s their video….
Instead of writing a long musing about love life and lust.( which the blog will be about most of the time) I wanted to give you little treat-actually a whole lot of treats. The coproducer of my album “Superpsychosexy”, the good twin, Geoffrey aka Jah Freedom, has an “instrumental” album for the free. It isnt completely instrumental tho-LOL. So download listen and enjoy…
Amuses-bouche, also called amuses-gueule, are tiny bite-sized morsels served before the hors d’uvre or first course of a meal. These, often accompanied by a proper complementing wine, are served as an excitement of taste buds to both prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef’s approach to cooking.
The word is French, literally translated to “mouth amuser” [for bouche = mouth; amuser = to amuse, to please]. The proper plural form is amuses-bouche. The original French word, more frequently employed, is amuse-gueule (gueule is slang for mouth but in fact means animal’s mouth (one word in French)), although amuse-bouche is considered more polite and is usually used on menus in more refined restaurants.
The amuse-bouche as an identifiable course arose during the Nouvelle Cuisine movement, which emphasized smaller, more intensely flavored courses.1 It is distinguished from other kinds of hors d’uvres by three characteristics. It is small, usually just one or two bites. It is the same for all of the guests at the table. And finally, it is not ordered by anyone; rather it is offered free of charge. The functional role of the amuse-bouche could be met by rather simple offerings—a plate of olives or a crock of tapenade. But the course often becomes a showcase for the artistry and showmanship of the chef as well as oneupmanship among restaurants
These are some audio experiments that I’d like to share…If youre looking for boom bap beats …you may not really find a lot of that on this particular outing (But there will be on the Iron chef beat cd “BEEF” coming soon)….these are some new and old tracks that I listen to or there was a weird story behind them or rappers thought the beats were too strange or beats that I just find amusing to me personally. Feel free to download, send to your friends, rap over them, bump in your whip etc. Thanks for listening.
It’s official- the Rithma tour bus has arrived. Coming to a city near you, our boy is about to embark on quite the adventure with this nice lookin piece of machinery. Hopefully you’ll be one of the lucky ones to catch one of his shows…. Rithma’s album “Sex Sells” is coming to you in March ’08!

UPDATE: Widespread Panic tour recap, photos, and hear sets online Widespread have taken over where the Dead left off with the jams. I was amazed to see so many heads follow them from show to show! The Panic are amazing musicians who enjoyed blending out of my DJ sets – joining in on the turntables and rocking a jam off my last record. They’re the coolest rocks stars I know, the fans are very open minded musically and they love to PARTY.
