Happy MLKJ Day, all ye civil rights enthusiasts, equality proponents, and day-off getters! We think it's nice that Coretta Scott got this day off while she was around. We wish she still were! She classed up the joint pretty nicely.
The Nerdcore Rising documentary trailer is still red hot. Check it out on YouTube or scroll down. Also red hot: the latest single from the Nerdcore Rising CD, This Old Man. Download it, then plead with us not to have any other things called "Nerdcore Rising" for a while.
MC Frontalot and Baddd Spellah (and maybe some bandmates) will be all over their Xfire celebrity chat on Thurs, Jan 25. Apparently you get a better chance of getting in if you pre-register. What is up with waiting in line for stuff on the internet? It seems you also need to muscle in early if you want a 64k feed for tonight's KOL Radio broadcast. Frontalot joins the fun "on-air" (aka "in-tube") at about 8:15 PM Eastern.
Did you know that rstevens is an adult now? I mean, not if you talk to him about stuff. But if you look at his driver's license, he is now qualified to be a US Senator. And only five years till a potential vice-presidential run! By the way, his comic is in paper newspapers now. Call and write your local edition and tell them to stock it. If this succeeds, he aspires to have Diesel Sweeties carved into stone tablets soon!
The fabulous folks at Vaguely Q have gone ahead and posted the first real trailer for their Nerdcore Rising documentary. Frontalot gets all excited about the fact that Weird Al is in it. And that everyone else who's in it is in it. Also: that he's in it. But his very favorite thing about the trailer is that it goes "swoosh, swoosh" whenever the words come onto the screen. You know. Like it would do in a trailer.
Jason Tanz's book on honkeys and rapping is out in less than a month: it is called Other People's Property: A Shadow History of Hip-Hop in White America and it has got MC Frontalot in it somewhere. Which reminds us: it is never too late to write a nice review of Front's record on Amazon.
Our boy High-C has helped orchestrate a gigantic nerdcore show at the DivX booth at CES. Front regrets that he cannot attend/perform. It is in the early evening on the 10th, with another Vegas nerdcore show the night before. Break a leg, kids! And put a nickel on 33 when you pass the roulette table.
Philosophical question: if you were a rapper, and you named yourself MC Frontalot, would you go on to name yourself Nerflor Snubdubble on KOL?
