Q. What's the artist's role in the war on terror?
A. I guess to increase comprehension and understanding of people whose realities are very different than one's own. One of the great pleasures of reading is to read books from elsewhere. For example, I used to be quite affected by Russian literature. I hardly spent any time there, but I felt like I had because I read so many Russian writers.
Remember to celebrate Banned Books Week.
Lawrence.com reviews the new Kelpie record (officially out today).
The majority of "Hey Friends, It's Kelpie!" sounds like Steely Dan playing a game of red light/green light with The New Pornographers, maniacally flashing red cards every time the other hits on a hook.
Loosie interviews MF Doom (the first part of a two part series).
So how does DangerDoom tie in with Adult Swim?
Those are our peoples. The way they do it creatively and the way they spin it, it’s similar to how we spin it. We all laugh at the same jokes and shit. The humor side of it. One of the key points, on Aqua Team in particular, your man Karl, dude sometimes be talking about Rap or Hip-Hop and how it’s corny or bubblegum music. He’s giggin’ on them a little bit. So kinda I played off that a little bit, like I’m an emcee and I’m giggin’ on it too like, “Yeah, the shit is corny now, they got it on TV.” But at the same time, I’m rhyming and it’s straight Hip-Hop shit. It’s almost contradicting itself, one of those slight, funny contradictions.
