Fuck a lake I got fish here. (more…)
My friend 12manrambo and I just opened a small record store here in Oakland, CA. It is called Park Blvd Records & Tapes. The address is 2014 Park Blvd, up the street from the old Parkway Theater and around the corner from Lake Merritt which is the greatest lake. You can follow us on Instagram, Twitter, the World Wide Web and Facebook. If you are in the Bay Area we are open Tuesdays through Sundays from 12pm to 7pm.
If you are not in the Bay Area we will be putting together a little online shop eventually and then you will be able to lie and tell people you went to the Bay Area even if you didn’t. If you are somehow still checking this site the online store is open now.
My new Pitchfork column is up and it’s a classic.

Damn things are getting real with the net as ever before. If you haven’t yet noticed Megaupload, the greatest and least ad-ridden file hosting site has been seized by the powers that be. This is a big problem and not just for Swizz Beatz’z’s barber. You see, Megaup was the principle host for the many mix tapes and compilations that I’ve posted on this site over the years. So I’ve taken to reupping everything in the very loosely dubbed CB Mix Series on Mediafire, which hopefully will not be crushed by a government that desperately wants to control what it doesn’t understand in the near future. It might be wise to grab these while you can. Hit the jump for a dozen tapes of Bounce, Based, Bass, Cranks and much more. (more…)
