This is fucking brilliant. A new social media application for bands to help each other connect with each others fans. Clearly this will appeal more to the up and comers, however it does have substantial benefits for the more established acts. Watch the video after the jump and spread the word.

Man, Antoine Dodson BEEN working on his brand. Or at least someone has. So y'all might have seen this video for his Halloween costume...
But now the dude is spruiking an iPhone app to track sex offenders. It's a very smart branding idea from the app makers, for sure. They caught him right at the end of his 15 minutes, I dare say.
This is cool as SHIT. It makes so much sense; why haven't they done this before now? Sometimes I just don't get humans. This level of awesomeness is so necessary.
This is some cool shit. As soon as the phone came out the box, these fellas shot the first official video to be completed entirely on the iPhone 4. The song itself isn't too bad, and the fellas ain't claiming it to be the best video either - just the first. Check it out...
That's right, folks, The Movement Fam has it's own Twitter page. Finally. The rest of the crew done been had one, so the overall crew might as well too.

Too much awesome.
OK, so I woke up this morning and my house mate shouts out "Dude, check this out!" So I watch the clip and I was kinda weirded out, the news channel decided to get an eye witness account of a shooting that had just apparently happened in Sydney's Kings Cross area.
OK so this place has thousands of tourists flocking to it every day, it has a night life that's notorious and yet in an effort to shock the general public, and most likely get the most yardage out of this news clip, they ask for the account of the events from shitfaced people in the area. The story is news worthy but I think the station will most likely receive a negative response from a few local ethnic communities for a few things, mostly I think it would've been from the message it conveys.
Young little Aussie girls do bad impressions of the ethnics. Is she describing Islander types for her use of the word 'bro' and 'hey?' Or does she refer to the ethnicities who claim the word 'wog'? I'm sure if this was America, the word may have begun with a 'N' and depending on who you hang out with, could have an A or R sound at the end. Despite all of that noise she keeps its real, and so do the others for that matter, with another dude recognising the gun as a 'Glock-9'.
I'm sure he would 'cause peeps in Kings Cross is gully like that, gnomsaying... I love it when realness, booze, guns, news, and ethnicities combines.. for me it's chaos in synergy.
Two clips here, peeps. I think Channel 9 should've used the second one.
Ever wondered what Hip Hop would have sounded like if it were used as the soundtrack to a NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) video game?
Me neither, but damn this is cool! Basically what some of Jay-Z, Kanye, T.I. and some other rappers beats would have sounded like on a video game in the 80's. Classic.
Now I'm waiting on some new-school rapper to flip the script (did I really just use that term?) and start sampling some old-school video game music.
It's not like it hasn't been done before.
There's Benefit's joint Warp To World 6-9 which uses the classic Super Mario Bros. sample.
Smif-n-Wessun (then Cocoa Brovaz) also flipped the Mario sample for Super Brooklyn. Ill shit.
Sampling Mario Bros. is almost too easy though. How about Extended F@mm's Line Drop, where they borrow the famous Tetris music and use it to great effect on the concept track. In the game, the music speeds up after dropping (and clearing) a number of lines. In the track, the beat/sample speeds up after each punchline dropped by the crew. Ridiculous.
Can I get a Jigga joint over some Metroid music?
How about a little Nas on a banging Ninja Gaiden (aka Shadow Warriors) beat?
Make it happen. Please.
Oh and if anyone is after MP3's of any of the tracks I linked, get at me via comments and I'll hook you up.
Aight, this is from the Onion website, so clearly they're taking the piss. I don't even know if it's a real product or not, it seems to be, but it's funny and it'll be interesting if something like this ever takes off.
lol @ taking 45 mins to type an email.
Aight, I'd heard of Twitter for the longest time, but never really bothered with it 'til I discovered the Barack Obama tweet. So I signed up and didn't mess with it for weeks...until yesterday.
For those who ain't know, Twitter is like the Facebook status updates...without everything else. And as shit as that sounds, it's actually really dope. And fun. And addictive. And everyone's doing it. Which, of course, is reason enough to join up.
So my man put me onto this thing called Twitterrific, which is like an MSN type program that sits on your desktop and allows you to see all the conversations between folks that you're 'following' and post directly to everyone without using the web app. Shouts to Ash for the link!
Check out the YouTube video explaining Twitterrific
