DC show added to Frontalot/Optimus Rhyme minitour! It's Mon, Oct 23, at
DC9 The Red & The Black. See the calendar for details. Looks like Philly on that Sunday night and maybe Pittsburgh on Tues. Is it cool to say "Philly?" Do we care if we're "cool?" Still working on Boston area for Fri 10/20. Can you aid us? Every respectable venue is booked solid. We're thinking of punk-rocking it and doing a DIY show with aid of some equipment-heavy dance kids in the area. But we still need a nice room that fits 150 and has an elevated stage. Perhaps where you have your math club meetings? Let us know.
New song! It is "Rhyme of the Nibelung." Sorry about the Teutonic title; couldn't be helped. This one is by our boy Baddd Spellah, with Front featured on vox. Hopefully, tomorrow it wins the Remix the Ring contest over at CBC. Wait, remix competitions? There is a site devoted to them, with eight versions of Front's Braggadocio. Might not be too late to vote there either.
Also online: Front interviewed by Twisted Pair Radio and The 8-Bit Show. Rembember how we used to get on the air? It's better now, even if "air" is not always involved. And speaking of ewwwwTubey things (we were not speaking of them, but let us go on), you can find all sorts of stuff if you search properly. Not just Frontal content, either. Everything from dark Reznory dreams of T.O.S. slash to the Lindy hip-hop. It's so difficult to despise that site, though you, like us, probably try your best. Here's some video you can really get into hating (unless you think it's hilarious) (like Front kind of does).
Penny Arcade Conventions! They continue to have occurred recently. Do you need the proof of a low-res video interview with MC Front? Such proofs are hard to trust when the mesh and textures are available to simulate and screen-cap any photorealistic Frontalot fantasy situation you might devise. We know, of course, that the only proper way to play a video game with Front in it is to boot up Add's original Spacers. It is a passtime available now only to members of our vaulted VSP.
Hey! Frontalot will be doing a show in New York City on October 21st at Crash Mansion. Optimus Rhyme joins him there! An evening of nerdish rapping the likes of which are seldom seen. Yet it may be seen four or five times in late October as the OR/MCF minitour takes shape.
Do you have a wonderful and serious lead on an appropriately sized and well equipped venue in Boston/Cambridge? How about DC? Write in to firstname.lastname@example.org if so. Pittsburgh is in the works. It is not impossible that Cleveland will follow suit. We apologize to you, the Frontalot front-page enthusiast; we do not usually seek booking aid so nakedly, so publicly. But we are between agents at the moment. And how often do we get to team up with The Optimus for their east coast debut? (by semantic necessity: once ever.)
Did you notice that the Elmo's Potty Time DVD is out? Although this sounds like the sort of information a frontalot.com news post might leverage towards a series of engaging and pithy lies, we instead announce this DVD's release in service of a solemn truth: the rapper who, in the closing third of the program, leads aspiring young toilet users through their tour of the toilet paper factory is none other than our own MC. His Sesame Workshop debut makes a great gift for any youngster contemplating independence from diapers — and to be honest, none of us are so great at using the bathroom that we can't benefit from the occasional refresher course.
As Penny Arcade Expo gets methodically scrubbed and vaccumed out of the Meydenbauer (never to return), those who attended must struggle to reintegrate with normal life. Or they can be all like jeers to that, keep the musky Rain-Slick Precipice shirt on, sign up for a five-cases weekly Bawls delivery, plug that fun-ass zombie game into the 360 and just live that way until Gabe and Tycho are ready to host again.
2500 such PAX folk jammed in to see Front's set Saturday night. The sabers swung. The palms shot skyward in unison when it was time for nerdcore to rise up. Front was overwhelmed with the sheer holleriness of a crowd that size. He thanks you all for your swarming, as well as your many kind words and handshakings at his booth! Afterwards, Enforcer Lee and a number of Neskimos aided Front in an all-night
drunken revelry poetry discussion that culminated in a rather large number of police officers swarming the Hyatt. Our friendly MC, you'll be glad to learn, avoided legal entanglements and escaped with a Natty Lite.
