Elenin Comet Causing Earthquakes September 2011


The world has natural disasters all the time, its part of our history. Over the last few years the disasters such as earthquakes, climate change and numerous others have increased in frequency and strength. According to a group of astronomers and scientists its because a comet or dwarf star with a mass greater than Jupiter has been flying towards the Earth.

The celestial bodies name is ELEnin and its been known about since 1965 and causing magnetic pole migration since about 2004. The research indicates that Earth will experience a polar shift around 9/26 to 9/27, when the Sun, Earth and this ELE (Extinction Level Event) object go into alignment on the autumn equinox

Below is a video giving detailed information about Elenin and its history with the Earth. What I like about the video is that it encourages watchers to conduct your own research. Then gives resources on how to do it. Whether you believe the video or not it never hurts to watch and be informed. I also added a few other videos in the subject to provide more info.

Eye Bombing


I love graff art! Back in my teens I used to do bubble letters on whatever surface I could find. As I got older, I went from bubble letters to images then stopped all together in favor of writing rhymes. But I never stopped loving the craft. What I like to see in good pieces of graff work is a strong technique. Meaning if you're doing letters, the letters have good borders, colors and are easy to read. If you're combining text with images the same rules apply accept the image has to be creatively done to compliment whatever the text says. 

Below are some excellent pieces of graff art that are eye bombing the mind to capture your interest and imagination. I scoured the net searching for the names of all the artists work who appear in this post, but regrettably I couldn't find the names of everyone. Some of these pieces are so dope they look like they belong in a museum. Its sad to think that some of this art will be ravaged by the winds of time. As the old saying goes...nothing lasts forever, so enjoy it while its here. 

If you love graffiti art check out these posts (Local Graff Art and Local Graff Art 2) by clicking on the titles. The series is ongoing and features graff from different artists in Holland, so check back periodically for updates.

New Muzik


There's been a few new hot joints coming out. I like some of Black Robs new songs, Random Axe is one of the best super groups since Slaughterhouse started releasing music. Keeping in the spirit of banging tunes I give you new muzik from Pete Rock and Smif-n-Wesson featuring Buckshot. Their new album Monumental just came out and once I give it a thorough listen I'll put it in the album review. 

I've been a fan of the whole Boot Camp Clik since Black Moon, "Who Got Da Props?" I got into Pete Rock when I heard the track "They Reminisce Over You" with CL Smooth. That song is a classic so I have high expectations for the collabo album with Smif-n-Wes. Aside from them I got a few other hot tracks below.

How 2 Make Free Money


There is a simple way to make allot of money. First have a good idea, second...ask for it. I know that sounds like a no-brainer but its true. There's a name for this type of fund raising and its not beggar. Its called venture capitalist funding and its a respected profession. Venture capitalist fund raiser's are people who accept donations for starving children in Africa, for public schools, and land development. They are wall street business types that operate non-profit organizations. These are real people who care about making the world a better place.

The term venture capital means money provided to a high risk but also high potential start-up company. Most companies that need venture capital are biotechnology, or software companies that have some new invention they need funds for to market and produce their product. That is exactly what the people at donorschoose.org do, except they're fund raising for education. Their idea was so good they got a donation from miss money banks herself...Oprah Winfrey. She really supports education and is willing to donate to venture capitalists who come up with innovative ways to provide it. 

So the next time you hear a school or hospital was built in the US or some poverty stricken country from venture capital funding you'll know what it means. Also if you're feeling generous and would like to assist in donating to one of hundreds of education, housing and land development projects click on the links above.

Summer Jams


I haven't had allot of time for posting lately cuz I'm preparing for my shows. I have a show at the CC Muziek Cafe in Amsterdam on August 16th. Then one in Berlin, Germany at the Little Stage nightclub on September 3rd. In between all that I've been working on new music and other side ventures. To put it simple...I've been busy. 

In between work I've been listening to new music and found a few summer jams that are worth checking out. Also since it is summer time, I thought it was only proper to post the DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince classic tune Summertime with the other songs. I recently found out that the song was ghost written by Masta Ace.

Dolphin Speed Boat


I read this awesome interview on Popular Science talking about future water transportation. Some ingenious engineers decided to use nature as inspiration and made a speed boat named the Seabreacher designed after a dolphin. Not only does the Seabreacher look like a dolphin it also moves like one through the water and can emulate the dolphins ability jump into the air up to 18 feet. If you read my other article Animal Technology you know that this isn’t the first time designers used nature as inspiration. 

What makes the Seabreacher unique is that the engineers didn’t just take a few ideas from watching dolphins and add them to a speed boat. They tried to make a duplicate the design and make a mechanical one. Its animal technology on steroids…take a look at the video below.
