Kind of rough draft of a mix I’m working on. Five Heartbeats was that that flick and Eddie Kane was that dude. He wasn’t a nice guy, but he was that dude. Come hang out with him for a second.

I Mustache You Something Important

Come With Me if You Want to Live

Come With Me if You Want to Live

Well, it takes a while to explain. I’ve been working on some music production/beat making and I wanted to make a hipster song. So I named the track before I ever laid down any digital instruments. So I mustache you something important seemed appropriately in the collective unconscious, using the fingerstache meme. I laid some basic drum tracks and played out a bass line, then I decided to throw a simple place holder vocal track, and there was a dumb idea for a song I wanted to use for a pop song, the most quoted line from Terminator. After I discovered I really liked the come with me if you want to live line I started to listen to the theme for Terminator for cues. I snatched the iconic drums and copied a few of thos patterns, then filled out the track with softer instrumentals. I like the balance. You might too, have a listen.

The artwork came after the track was done. The Idea of a Terminator with a fingerstache was funny to me. So I made it.

Black Twitter # Dangerous

I was listening to, The Black Guy Who Tips,  one of my favorite podcasts and they had a panel discussion that was about , Black Twitter. The article they cited said that Black Twitter tended to be “irresponsible” and “dangerous.”  So I fired up Illustrator and got to designing a graphic.

#dangerous

Dangerous

I could get angry and dust off my soapbox, but I figured, why not try to make a buck. #capitalism.

Buy a shirt, or a button, or a mug or a bag.
