Artist Promotion #002 - Promise [April 26, 2009]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Thats that new game coming out, lol, shit is fire

If you're into hip-hop and you're tired of the run of the mill, fly by night bullshit that's been going around for the past few years, you should really check this guy out. Normally, when people make such a claim, they allude to some boring ass rapper that alludes to the "greater times". He's a down to earth kind of guy yes, but what separates him from the pack is his sense of humor.

I've been listening to this guy for three years or so, and I just don't understand how he's not signed. He comes up with some of the most creative stuff I've heard in recent history, especially on myspace. "Where's Gary?", "Tom Deleted Me", and "Rubber Ducky" are way more creative than anything any other rapper has had me listen to.

Best of all, he's big into interacting with people. He's always posting bulletins and blogs. He responds to most comments and truly appreciates his feedback too. If you're still not convinced, listen and add for yourself.

Artist Promotion #001- Through You [April 16, 2009]

[ mood | hungry ]

I've been thinking about doing this for months and months, but I might as well start now that I have a little free time. Every so often, I'm going to put something out there I think people should be hearing, and I can't think of a better band to start this out with than Through You.

They remind me a bit of a young Incubus in terms of their overall sound. Their vocalist sounds a lot like Brandon Boyd, but I think his voice is a bit more dynamic. For those of you that are genre specific, don't fret. They're NOT a nu-metal band, though some their earliest material sounds a little rap-metally. Without a full album to speak of, they've already impressively expanded their sound to set themselves apart from the sea of bands inspired by the likes of KoRn and the Deftones.

Speaking of those two bands, Through You opened for them during the Family Values 2006 tour and are the only unsigned act to appear on that bill. Not only that, but they also appeared on the main stage that year. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Due to a loss of two members, the band has been inactive lately, but I'm pretty sure they'll be back and tighter than they've ever been. Another thing I must point out is that their drummer is really young and really good. He was 14 years old the two times I saw them perform live. I also spoke with him briefly in person and via this very blog. He along with his bandmates are pretty cool people.

If you don't trust my taste (which you should by now), here's a second opinion.

Check out their myspace and their music here.

Media Software [March 13, 2009]

Video Files
The most common video file types found here are avi, mpg, mpeg, & flv. There are loads of others out there, but most of these problems have very simple solutions.

If you use Windows Media Player, you'll want to download the DivX codec. It's not necessary to install the player if you don't want to, but it solves a lot of problems.

The ultimate video player is VLC. It will play any and every video and audio file type you can imagine. It's very rare to have problems playing ANYTHING with this program, even the most obscure file types. It even plays flv, which WMP doesn't!

Audio Files
I use winamp for all my music. Some people use itunes, but I don't like how big and bulky the window is for that. They're both good for organizing playlists and what not, but I prefer the much more manage and custumizable winamp to anything else.

Compressed Files
If you're using WindowsXP and beyond, you shouldn't have a problem unpacking zip or rar file packs. There are other compressed file types out there, but you won't see them from me. If you have any problems at all with extraction, just install WinRar. After installation, you'll be able to unpack these files with a simple right-click.

Progressive metal veterans DREAM THEATER have announced BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS as the title of their tenth studio album. The band commenced work on the album – their second for Roadrunner Records, following up 2007's Systematic Chaos— in October of last year.

Six weeks prior to the June 23 street date, Roadrunner will release one cover song per week through digital retailers. Drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci are once again at the helm as producers, while Paul Northfield mixed the record.

The band will embark on a world tour in support of the album beginning in Europe throughout June which will be followed by the second edition of the band’s PROGRESSIVE NATION tour featuring Zappa Plays Zappa, Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish throughout North America in July/August.

A video for the first single, "A Rite of Passage" will be shot in late March.
