This is already a few months old, but I missed it when it first hit the web.  While searching for Beck covers, I stumbled upon these unused cover designss for Beck’s Modern Guilt at Super Duper.  The unused covers were created by artist Mario Hugo.  And there are several more to look at on the artist’s website.

I love the Souled On Samples posts at Souled On.  The most recent sample post taught me that two of my favorite songs of ’08 (GZA’s “Life Is A Movie” & Grip Grand’s “Remember The Time”) owe a ton to their original sample source (Gary Numan’s “Films” & Darondo’s “Didn’t I”).  Thanks Scholar.

I’m usually not a fan of viral videos, but for whatever reason I’m finding this new SFW XXX video by Diesel to be highly entertaining. However, I’m fairly sure that it is NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

The Emmy’s are tonight. I doubt that I’ll watch with Sunday night already being my most packed night of television.  Also, awards shows are usually pretty lame.  Although, ABC’s advertising (as pictured above) is pretty sweet.   Anyhow, there’s no new episode of Mad Men tonight. The show wants to allow their fans to root for Mad Men, as well as Jon Hamm and John Slattery, in tonight’s Emmy broadcast.  Speaking of Jon Hamm, he will be hosting Saturday Night Live on October 25th.

Here’s some new information on Buck 65’s Dirtbike:

I put together this thing called Dirtbike. Actually – at the risk of sounding nuts or esoteric or pretentious – the project is called Dirtbike (I figure it will be an on-going endeavor) and the first piece of it is called Lettersongs (Different Kinds of Dirt). I don’t really even understand it myself.

Anyhow, it’s a new project. It’s kind of an album. It’s one very long piece and in many ways it’s a lot like the original versions of Vertex and Man Overboard. It’s an hour and ten minutes long and is very lo-fi (sounds like crap). This is just something I did on my own time for fun – like I said: woodshedding.

But I didn’t work alone. My old friend and collaborator Jorun contributed an amazing beat that Moka Only raps on. Moka also contributed a beat for a part that was inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s Active Resistance Manifesto. There’s a “hook” in the song that goes “take action…”. I also had input and added production or instrumentation from: Buddy Peace, Emily Wells, Tom Inhaler, D-Styles, Skratch Bastid, Andrew Glencross and Serafina Steer. Oh yeah, and Doseone raps on a part – yes, raps.

There’s a “song” about Fatty Arbuckle, one about St. Anthony the Great, one about La Golue who was featured in many Toulouse Lautrec paintings. There’s also a cover of a weird French song (in English) from the late ’70’s (maybe 1980).

Anyhow, it’s a very strange, experimental, un-commercial project. I made it for my own perverted pleasures and never considered for a second that it might be a proper release. I gave a few copies to friends and that’s all I ever planned for it.

Well, I tell you about all this because it’s out there. If you’re interested in hearing it, I don’t think you’d have to search on the internet very long or hard to find it. The key word is Dirtbike1/3.

Before I put it together I felt as though I was sitting on around four hours worth or material of the same sort that I now plan to complete before the end of October. So there may be more of this kind of thing to come – soon.
