Gimme the Finger

Eibol and Nobs, flexin'.

Short video clip (11MB): eibolandnobs.mpg

Had a great time last night over in Oakland at the last show of the Fingerprint Records' crew's Gimme the Finger tour. Check them out at I also posted all my photos on their board. I went picture crrrrrrazy. Spent all day sizing and posting photos and recording this week's VE Radio show. Please listen but watch out for the trainwreck, you might hurt yourself. Pay attention to the Raw Soul record. I have an extra if anyone's interested. The shows now live on a new domain, (Soon with Quicktime streaming!) VE Radio is now looking for sponsors. So if you own a successful company that you'd like me to help promote on my weekly mix, gimme some dough.

Gotta rest up for the Dax Pierson benefit tomorrow night. Can't wait to hear what DJ Doseone is going to play.

Me and Dose.

Holy F*ck the new Trailer Park Boys is f*ckin' awesome.

"Tonight I am getting so f*cking drunk and smoking so much goddamn dope and cigarettes, it's gonna be awesome..."

Thank you, Trailer Park Boys and Longmont Potion Castle for keeping me sane. This level of genius renews my faith in humanity.

"To Corey and Trevor..."

Doowutchyalike tonight!

See you here:

EZ5 is a cozy spot in Chinatown. Dos Rexx points out that it's the perfect set for a Japanese gangster film.

He is also bringing the NEW Trailer Park Boys.

"No one cares about records anymore."

Rascue, Spair, Serg and B.Cause

That's what I heard someone say at the record sale yesterday. Maybe it was said in jest, but I found it depressing.

Anyway, I picked up a bunch of stuff for cheap, including Fanatik's Seismology Pt. 2, Ice-T "99 Problems," a couple of Seagram 12-inches and Mix Master Spade "It's the Mix Master" w/ "Let's Get Stupid" on the B. Rest in peace, Mix Master Spade. I don't hang out with other DJs enough lately. We enjoyed pizza and beer, and talked records. Hopefully this goes down on a regular basis.

Biz slangin' Cherry Pepto

A slimmer Biz

You hear Biz Markie's Cherry Pepto radio spot? For the hip hop demographic with occasional stomach discomfort. Reminds me of seeing Viagra banners on a bboy website. Check out the Pepto-Bismol Dance Machine. Ugh, now I don't feel so good.

@ It Again

Rhymesayers Entertainment's @ It Again tour rolled into San Francisco last night, with a show at Slim's last night and one tonight at Bottom of the Hill, both sold out. Thanks to my hero JBird (DeeJay Bird), I was on Atmosphere's guest list. JBird isn't working this tour, but came out to catch a couple of the California dates.

Special guest (He's not on the whole tour.) Crescent Moon opened, surprisingly playing guitar and rapping/singing. He and Buck 65 should collaborate. Ironically the other Oddjobs guys, Deetalx and Nomi, were in Minneapolis doing a show as their new group, Power Struggle. P.O.S. was dope -- he got the crowd going ("Who said 'Fuck Bush' but didn't vote?") and even though I didn't know any of his songs, I liked his voice and hard sound. I'll be checking for his records. He asked the crowd, "What's my DJ's name?" (Answer: Boombox. It was a boombox.) Reminds me of when I saw Ice-T in the 80s and he said, "This is my DJ Evil E. What's my DJ's name?" and the crowd yelled, "Cut Creator!" I don't know what P.O.S. stands for (Point Of Sale?), but his name is Stef too. Grayskul went on at around 10 but I have to admit I didn't pay much attention to their set.

When I first heard about Slug touring with a band instead of Mr. Dibbs, I was disappointed because I looooove Dibbs. And I also thought JBird wouldn't be there. But once the tour started, the reviews were positive and JBird told me he'd be at the San Francisco show, so I was really looking forward to it. Atmosphere really killed it. The band (keyboards, drums, guitar, bass) didn't just play the beats live, they interpreted them with sounds that went very soulful, bluesy and even metal at times. Slug was Slug, and that's a good thing, doing a lot of the hits as well as a couple of new songs. He seemed refreshed and excited by this different turn he's taken, and rocked it for two hours straight. After the show he introduced my friend Diane and me as "famous around here" and genuinely asked our opinions of the show. JBird noticed my 1986 Beastie Boys shirt peeking out of my hoodie and told me he has one too. Those were sold on the Licensed to Ill tour back in '87. He also told me that he recently met Cey who still rolls with the Beasties. It was great to see everyone, but I'm too tired to go again tonight. Last night's show was a benefit for Dax Pierson. Jel told me that Sole and the guys on the War On Self Tour got to visit with Dax when they stopped in Houston. Good to hear that Dax enjoyed that visit. I can't wait to see Tim. I never call him Sole to his face even though he still always calls me DJ Stef.

Friday night we donned our fresh from Texas gear to hit up 26Mix and wish Ross Hogg a Happy Birthday. I wonder if Rapid Ric knows about the What It Do cocktail. OH and check out Serg's What It Do story. This person who calls himself Pretty Flaco apparently doesn't have a life of his own and has to steal Serg's posts for his blog. But this time it's a story that's mine as well as Serg's: Pretty Flaco's bitten story -- insane.

Anyway, DJ Raw B's monthly party First Serve Basis, every 2nd Friday at 26Mix, is always fun and the music is always good. Even though Ross said a girl asked him, "Can you play something I know?" He doesn't know what you know!

DJ Marz

If you know the Trailer Park Boys, then you know what's up with this picture. (That's pepperoni in his hand.)

If you're a TPB virgin, I suggest you start with the movie pilot, then watch the TV episodes, Seasons 1-4, in order. (If you're a hip hop fan, you can watch "Who's the Microphone Assassin" first -- Season 3.) Plots, subplots, relationships and characters build gradually, and for God's sake don't start with a Season 4 episode or you'll OD.

Click here for the DVDs.

Big up to my TPB connect, Dos Rexx, who shares my obsession. We've indoctrinated a few of our friends to the TPB code, including Marz here as well as Megabusive. Could you be next?

Reissues make me mad.

Welcome to my blog. Since's server ate my website, this will give you something to read while I rebuild it.

Of all my 3,000+ (I think) records, Latee's "No Tricks" is my favorite 12-inch. Wild Pitch's "When MCs Had Skills" DJ single series is a good idea I guess, but reissues take value (and I'm not talking eBay value, I'm talking play value) away from the originals. That's if you're playing records. If you're playing burned CDs on your C-DJ or mp3s on Serato, it's not an issue.
