Yep, it’s NFL Football (the american version of football… you know, with the brown ball) time again…. don’t know how many people who are reading THAT REAL SCHITT can help me with this, but if there are any pissed off Eagles fans out there who want to sell their season tickets, I will buy them. Contact me at email@example.com and we can do biz. Hey, I love dogs too, but season tickets are season tickets.
Shout out to my family over at DWG aka Diggers With Gratitude… I’m late as usual but for those who haven’t already copped I must plug their latest special project, the second installment of their rare Hip Hop record label poster series. This one features the most sought after promo-only rap 12″s… haven’t gotten my print yet but if I squint my eyes reeeeeal hard and look closely at the above pic I can make out stuff like the Big Red & Diamond D joint, Run DMC “Here We Go”, I think that’s the LL Cool J “No Airplay” that Rare Dave got from me (yep, same one you may have downloaded a few posts ago on this very site), Milk “Get Off My Log”, Big Daddy Kane “Ain’t No Half Steppin'” and many other rare as f–k promos. Super high quality, from what I hear. 700 x 500mm size, only 350 copies printed. Cost- £15 per poster (including worldwide postage). Paypal payments should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested (and why wouldn’t you be?).
This exquisite print should hold you until the next Phill Most Chill / DWG project drops… all I can say about that one is OMGWTFLOLOLZOMGFTW!!! I can’t wait. More to come, stay tuned…
In between the last Headphone Music post and the next one, the main thing I’ve been listening to is a fantastic mix by my guy Jared Boxx, formerly of The Sound Library record shoppe and now reppin’ Big City Records, NYC. This mix, entitled Thanks For Waiting, features some rare and ridiculously nice soul music- I guess the kind that most people today would call modern soul or boogie or whatever.
Me, I’m from back in the days when that soul actually was modern so I don’t know nuthin’ about those particular monikers… it’s just soul or R&B to me. But you know how it goes, a rose by any other name yadda yadda.
Anyway, one of my favorite joints out of many on Jared’s mix is by an obscure group out of Cali named Spaceark. I could type out a quick bio on them, but you know I’m not going to go to the trouble to do that. But I will do something even better and link you to this site that will tell you just about everything you could ever want to know about the group.
But back to the song, “Welcome To My Door”… this might be on my list of all time favorite songs (I probably have over 10,000 tunes on said list so I don’t know how special that designation really is). It’s basically a song about hitting the pipe- I assume a pipe full of weed since this is from back in the 70’s and not the crackpipe era of the 80’s, but who really knows what the hell Spaceark was tokin’ on even back in 1978. Regardless, just as Troy Raglin sings it, this jam has me “feelin’ fine all the time”.
