I feel like I know all of the hairs on my face.
Another winter week, another video. This one features all original artwork from the President of the Bored of Directors for 2MERIC@RP himself, Jaimeson “7m”:
You make me stay inside and quiet, mother nature and neighbors, and you get no bike and no drums. What’s a boy ‘sposed to do? Yes….. I do plenty of that. And that. But my baby brother and I can get visual too, all cramped up and quiet. But the buds are just below the surface, the buds are just below the surface.
It’s only Wednesday but it’s 61 degress and sunny on the Northside of 2MERICA, so it’s time for some rollerskating!
Check the moves on this video for our song Male Performance Issues.
I have been dragging ass through February but March is here and it looks like we might have all survived another winter. Time to rock and roll for sure. I had two songs on the iPod the last couple of days that kept me going, particularly the lyrics, so I wanted to post them for your enjoyment:
Nightrain [by Slash, Izzy, Duff & Axl]
Well I’m a west coast struttin’
One bad mother
Got a rattlesnake suitcase
under my arm
Said I’m a mean machine
Been drinkin’ gasoline
you can make my motor hum
I got one chance left
in a nine live cat
I got a dog eat dog sly smile
I got a Molotov cocktail
with a match to go
I smoke my cigarette with style
And I can tell you honey
you can make my money tonight
Wake up late
Honey put on your clothes
Take your credit card to the liquor store
That’s one for you and two for me
I’ll be loaded like a freight train
Flyin’ like an aeroplane
Feelin’ like a space brain
One more time tonight
Elevators (Me & You) [by Andre & BigBoi]
Got stopped at the mall the other day
Heard a call from the other way
that I just came from, some nigga was sayin somethin’
talkin’ bout “Hey man, you remember me from school? Smoke some?”
“Naw not really” but he kept smilin’ like a clown
facial expression lookin’ silly
and he kept askin’ me, what kind of car you drive?
I know you paid
I know y’all got buku of hoes
from all them songs that y’all done made!
And I replied that I had been goin’ through the same thing that he had
True, I got more fans than the average man
but not enough loot to last me to the end of the week
I live by the beat like you live check to check
If you don’t move yo’ feet then I don’t eat so we like neck to neck
Yes, we done come a long way like them slim-ass cigarettes
from Virginia, this ain’t gon’ stop
so we just gonna continya’
If you would have hit me on the head hard enough to convince me I was talking to a music genie, and that genie convinced me he was able to grant me wishes, one of those wishes might have resembled what is happening tomorrow night.
Or, to hype it more….. the best underground band my town has ever had from back in the day has reformed and is playing our best club’s tenth anniversary party. They’ve also promised to play their entire first album live! Also, plus, (such as, such as) — 2 killer current bands are playing the same place, same night, on a second stage.
Facts: It’s the legendary Pere Ubu, playing this Friday March 5th at the legendary Beachland Ballroom. And they are going to play “The Modern Dance” in it’s entirety! It’s hometown heroes playing at everyone’s favorite home club, plus new legends in the making This Moment In Black History and Sun God playing the attached Beachland Tavern.
OK, if you ain’t around Cleveland and have never heard of Pere Ubu, it’s ok. But now you have heard of them and I will be enjoying myself tomorrow night, living out a rock and roll phantasy.
WE HAD TO HIT THE REMIX button for some youtube love. More 2merica visualizations, this one featuring a hot track from the 2nd LP called “Extraordinary Rendition”.
Turn it up and let it rip:
