"Whatchu' Talkin' 'Bout Wednesday" - Kid Rock For Senate

Image Well this is certainly an enticing story and wildly entertaining especially since the Huff Post and New Yorker are losing their shit over the announcement, along with many Democrats and in particular Elizabeth Warren , and really who knows what it can become once he officially registers. There's little doubt that Kid Rock has done much for the state of Michigan already, and his desire to do more from a political standpoint is certainly meritorious. I'm much more in favour of a play like this than celebs using their status to just openly and often ignorantly criticise whilst offering no solution to alleged grievances. "Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It's not a hoax, it's a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and….. Sena

DJ Excel - Skratch Makaniks Crew & Alfa Paare

" One of the few true DJs left in the World. He is the "Philly DJ Sound" that everyone talks about ." - DJ Jazzy Jeff Before we start I want to thank Excel for his time, patience, professionalism and friendship. In the very beginning I'd reached out to Excel to see if he'd answer some questions for a site with a much higher profile, The Reference Council, and I'm honoured and humbled he still wanted to do it for my own blog. To prepare for this feature I took to reading as many previous interviews with Excel as possible and used what I learned to make this one something a little different. Inspite of my dreadful time management, this feature has turned out to be more engrossing and entertaining than I could have wished for. Intro A couple years back I found myself waiting outside of the Libertine club in central London on the verge of meeting an artist I'd made contact with

Nick Smith - "Ourselves Unseen 2017"

"As I've always said with my work... close up reading is a must!" - Nick Smith This is partly because it's a sunny, warm Friday and I wanted to show some boobs, but mostly because I'm a fan of Nick Smith and the Paramour series is what introduced me to his work.  Available now from Art Republic , " Ourselves Unseen 2017 " is from a limited edition of 99 and is signed and numbered by the artist. "The text sewn through the print comes from the book Fanny Hill, Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure by John Cleland published in 1748 and is considered the first original English prose pornography.  The book became very popular but was immediately banned by the authorities until 1963, resulting in 215 years of under the counter illegal sales. This print is the final paper print to be released from my Paramour series." Whilst I'm not in a position to showcase naked breasts on my walls at home (and I'm still paying for Kayne ), these w
