Would you like to suggest a question for the FAQ? Well, you can't. But soon there will be a little submission form for that very purpose, and Valued Suckers will sort out their favorite ones for Front to answer in this very space.
Keep an eye out. Or just be on the mailing list (see above).
Q. Shouldn't it be spelled M.C. Front-a-Lot?
A. No. But feel free to proofread the rest of the site for me.
Q. Aren't there like thousands of nerdcore rappers these days?
A. Please don't exaggerate. It is true, though, that there are many; scores, if not hundreds. You can browse the Wikipedia entry on nchh for those deemed "notable" by someone who typed things into Wikipedia.
Q. Aren't there famous(er) rappers who are nerdcore?
A. Well, sure, if you accept the criterion that rappers are nerdcore just because Front lists them in his FAQ. Bear in mind that none of these have publicly admitted to being entirely geeked out, and some may even consider themselves cool: MC Paul Barman, Del (particularly in Deltron 3030), MF Doom, Doctor Octogon, MC 900 Foot Jesus, Blackalicious (though only in rare moments such as Alphabet Aerobics and Chemistry Calisthentics).
Q. Are there any internet superstars who are not rappers who MC Frontalot likes to listen to?
Q. If Front were a real nerd wouldn't he tell us which web comix to read?
A. In fact, he would! And they'd be Diesel Sweeties, White Ninja, Dr. McNinja, Cat and Girl, Achewood, Eat My Comix, Overcompensating, Toothpaste for Dinner (also Married to the Sea), Jerk City, Scary Go Round, Exploding Dog, and Goats. You already read Penny Arcade. It is hard to avoid mentioning certain comics that are not (primarily) web comix. So here's those: Perry Bible Fellowship, Tom The Dancing Bug, everything by Tony Moore, Dan Clowes, Dame Darcy, James Kochalka, Jim Woodring, Julie Ducet, Chris Ware, Craig Thompson, Dave Cooper, Charles Burns, Seth, Peter Bagge, Ben Katchor oh duh and Garfield.
Q. Can I be MC Frontalot's friend on a social networking site?
Q. MC Frontalot, how do I use the internets?
A. It's easy and fun! First, install Firefox. Then get all of the FF extensions that Frontalot treasures: DownThemAll, Firebug, Flashblock, IE Tab, MouseZoom, and Xmarks. This will give you access to "web sites." Next, get a gmail account and start sending everyone you know lists of lawyer jokes that you found on the "web sites." Alternately, get a POP or IMAP account somewhere and use a mail client (Front hates all mail clients too much to recommend one). For advanced internets usage, you'll want to have FlashFXP, BitTorrent (or probably Vuze), a Usenet client (Front's fave, NewsGrabber, has been out of print for a while), WinSCP, UltraVNC, Pidgin, and mIRC. Oh, if you're using an OS named after a cat... I don't know, maybe they still make Fetch? They definitely make Boot Camp to help your computer do normal things.
Q. Why does the text look all blocky and shitty at frontalot.com?
A. WinXP: Maybe you don't have font smoothing turned on. Right-click on the destop, choose Properties > Appearance > Effects, then check "Use the following method..." and select ClearType. I can't believe I'm giving you tech support. Also, I heard WinXP doesn't exist any more. Hooray!@!
Q. Can I put MC Frontalot on my internet radio show/personal-use mix CD/answering machine message?
A. Yes, but only if you do all three.
Q. I saw MC Frontalot posting on the [fark/somethingawful/etc] forums. Was that really him?
A. Maybe! Maybe not. It is hard to tell, because internet. You can ask him, if you want, he will tell you if he ever posted somewhere before, and then you won't have to wonder.
Q. Didn't there used to be a Media section? With hilarious fakery?
A. Sure did! It's hidden here, and two of the articles are still broken.
Q. Isn't MC Frontalot just a cheesy rap parody novelty act, worth barely a moment's smirking half-appreciation?
A. Ya moms is a cheesy rap parody novelty act, worth barely a moment's smirking half-appreciation! No more questions.
Q. I thought you said no more questions.
A. Okay, one more.
Q. What's the future of Public Enemy?
