Star Trail Time Lapse

This is just beautiful! Earth and everything in it is so beautiful...we're so lucky to be living here!

Aurora Borealis Timelapse

I want so badly to see this with my own eyes. The aurora borealis is one of our planet's most amazing features.

Faceless Watch

These are crazy! I wouldn't mind having one of these!

The watch without a face is completely black until you push the only button on the watch which illuminates two colored lights on the frame to display the time in analog. Called the "eye of the storm".

McKinlays 2010 Holiday

I'm really digging the middle one!

"Nepenthes takes stock of three new designs from Australian footwear brand McKinlays of Dunedin. Made for the Japanese market, the retailer presents a slip-on clog and traditional brogue, each featuring suede uppers with contrasting outsoles and trademark brogue detailing throughout. Complimenting those two is a suede boot as well, coming in a tonal black. All are now available through Nepenthes stores.

First Ascent Peak XV Down Suit

Pretty cool suit, reminds me of Sub-Zero! Could probably be useful, especially here in Boise right now! This suit will set you back $1000.

"The ultimate protection for the most extreme conditions at the highest altitudes. Our guides have 28 Everest summits among them. This is what they wear on summit day. "

Unity in Diversity

Unity in Diversity is an event we were so fortunate to be part of in October. There were so many talented people involved and it was truly an honor and a pleasure for us to meet everyone involved. Jared Hallock was the mastermind behind the whole thing and brought together some of Boise's finest talents.

Here's an original song we helped write specifically for the event, titled after the event/group (foreshadowing?). We have Jared on drums, Leta/Jason/me/MCMD on vocals, Dan/Chris on guitar and Jason on bass. The Red Light Variety show joined us for the performance.

More footage of this event is coming soon!

Moment in Rhyme (You Can't Hold a Torch)

In an attempt to elevate ourselves as writers and to make more use of our rarely used YouTube account, MCMD and I are beginning a weekly "freestyle" series called Moment in Rhyme. Each week, we will just rap to a beat whatever is on our mind at the moment; nothing written, nothing rehearsed - everything inspired from the moment. Here's the first one, over Dilla's beat for Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip "You Can't Hold a Torch". These aren't our best lines...just practice!

Primitive 2010 Fall/Winter Caps

Hmm...I'll take one! ...(maybe two)

Welcome (Gotta Go)

Good to see Black Milk getting himself seen! He really channels Dilla on this one, and though that's often said, this is the ONLY song on his new CD "Album of the Year" that sounds like Dilla. He really established his own sound on the rest of the tracks, which is awesome!

Think Sidewayz

MCMD and I opened for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony last night. That was pretty fun, but I think I'll post about that separately once I have pictures and stuff. For now, I just wanna let everybody know about something going on tomorrow evening!

Our friend Ronn Seidenglanz has an event called Think Sidewayz going on to exhibit his work in photography. He will be giving a small speech as well as showing his pieces at the brand new Apple Store in the mall from 7p-8p, and the party continues at the Empire Bldg. downtown from 9p-12a. We were lucky enough to be chosen to perform a couple songs for the evening, so we'll be at both events but performing at the Empire Bldg.! Also performing is our good friend Eleven!

The after party is 21+ and there will indeed be drinks and stuff like that. I imagine for anybody in the creative field, this might be a good chance to network with some people so come on out if you have a moment! Should be a fun time! Hope to see some of you there.

Here's a trailer Ronn created to promote the show!

Deadly Medley

If you still haven't, you need to watch this video for Black Milk's "Deadly Medley" from his brand new album "Album of the Year"! The CD is incredible and you need to go out and purchase it. People have been comparing Black Milk to Dilla for a long time, but I feel like Black Milk really broke through on this album and shows that he's got his own sound. I will say though, the song "Welcome (Gotta Go)" = straight up Dilla. Good stuff though.

With verses from Royce and El, you better believe this is a deadly medley. Great beat, great rhymes...that's all you need! This is epic!

And real quick, I've had the song "365" from the album on REPEAT. It's like some celebration, grown up, dress your best type music. I wish it were my song so I could perform it!

Gourmet: The 22

These are basically Blazers but I'm feeling these reds. Despite the bite, Gourmet has quickly become one of my favorite shoe brands.

Well, hopefully!

I highly doubt anyone really comes here anymore, especially since I've fallen off on updates, but I'm gonna try my hardest (and I know I've said that before) but this time for real.

I have new capabilities that will allow me to update easier. I have also been fortunate enough to be blessed with many musical opportunities around town.

One thing's for certain; I'll definitely continue doing Cutest Puppy of the Week.

Hopefully more readers will come through and enjoy the site...let's do it!

Marina Bay Sands Hotel


The Marina Bay Sands is the world's most expensive hotel in Singapore, and with a world's largest outdoor pool at 55th storey.
"The infinity pool on the roof is in the 'SkyPark' which spans the three towers of the hotel. The platform itself is longer than the Eiffel tower laid down and is one of the largest of its kind in the world.
Infinity pools give the effect that the water extends to the horizon. In reality, the water spills over the edge into a catchment below, and is then pumped back into the pool. The pools have two circulation systems. The first functions like that of a regular pool, filtering and heating the water in the main pool. The second filters the water in the catch basin and returns it to the upper pool. "

Tightrope (Wondamix)

Janelle Monae is so beautiful. Man she can rap too! Here's the remix to her song "Tightrope" featuring Lupe Fiasco & B.O.B.! What a lineup!


Hey everyone! I know its been awhile but man I have been a busy dude. From work to vacations to music, I have just been on the grind. I'm gonna try to post stuff on the regular again but I can't promise anything!

Real quick, I just want to give a really big thank you to everyone who has been checking out my music here and there and coming out to support me and MCMD at our live shows! Your support is not overlooked!

Anyway, onto the fun stuff, the super talented Turbo released a new video for his song "FTW"! Great song and cool video, check it out.

Stray Bullets

Oh yes another free download! Cee-Lo gives a free project to hold us over until he releases his newest album (forgot what it's called). This is a dang nice album, you have to download this one. Lots of feel-good, funky tracks on this! Trust me this is good! Click the picture to download!

The Decadence

Star Trak's newest artists Christian Rich released their free EP last week. It's pretty decent, but man I could sure go without all that auto-tune! Some of these songs sound like straight Drake/Wayne songs! Nothing against them but if I wanted to hear them then I'd find their song! Worth a listen though, they certainly channel that Neptunes energy. I really like track 8 "Private Secret" probably because it has Janet Jackson elements in it. Click on the album cover below to download! Definitely download it if you want to dance!

Say Wassup

Very good song/video from Rhymefest & Phonte! What a fun ode to old cartoons! Apparently it's in 3D but I wouldn't know since I don't have the glasses!

I Want You

Here's a cool song/video from Theophilus London. Loving the Marvin Gaye sample! This girl is dangerous!

Hooray for anytime Oukast hooks back up! Here's a track that was supposed to be on Big Boi's upcoming new CD "The Son of Chico Dusty" (in stores July 8, can't wait!) but was left off because of label issues. What a bummer because this song is awesome. Click the picture to listen to it. Trust me; it's great! Outkast is great! Good to hear three stacks rhyming again!

Pantone Hotel (Brussels)

This hotel is crazy!

Opening in the Brussels’s Sint-Gilles area, the Pantone Hotel has just opened. The project is an initiative by the Pantone global colour authority who have worked in collaboration with a group of British developers to produce 59 affordably priced rooms in stylish, colorful designs, created by architect Olivier Hannaert and interior designer Michel Penneman. Each of the seven floors have been decorated using different color palettes to enhance its guests’ emotions, indeed the rooms are also patterned from one of seven distinct pantone colors.
