OLD BUT STILL GOOD

And some spiritual acid contained within.

Do you think it is true that Eminem is now 300lbs?

SOME SONGS TO PAINT TO

Totally obvs to anyone as to why this song should be here. A great song for getting the tools together, opening the paint tin and getting a job underway.

Indeed the whole Dr Dre album is great DIY music. As is the Snoop Dogg album Tha Last Meal. I fully recommend either of these.

And definitely the DJ Guy Fired Up Promo mix that I have mentioned before on the blog.

I love this weird Spanish cover song and it is great for doing corner bits with the paint brush. You do need to change the mood a bit for this work, but still nothing too chill. You could also try this:

Yeah I know what a lot of people say about Tatu. But it’s a great song to paint to.

Or this classic Robert Palmer if you aren’t into lesbians produced by Trevor Horn.

I’m obsessed with Rick Ross at the moment, but he is ugly with bitch titties and goes on about how many lips he’s got on him but that is so impossible. I don’t get it. I’ve done a lot of things in my life I can’t rationalise. But get the Big Red Bass Mix of Hustlin. It has a better pace for the roller on the walls. It is is better when he sings “Whip it whip it real hard”. It is good for when you get really to the point of “I can’t go on but there is only a bit left to do.”

If you have any further suggestions to make as to what you think might be a good painting song please do not hesitate to make a comment and I will try it out. I know anonymous blogging has been turned off since “the asshole in Singapore” incident [Alex T I still love you for the service you provided me that day. I just hope you didn't hear my voice cracking on the phone.]

TRAINING DAY

I FINALLY got to see Training Day that Jo “To Pimping!” Mitchell has been going on about for so long. It stars Denzel Washington [I have a minor obsession with his acting ability], Ethan Hawke [I fucking HATE him] SNOOP DOGG as a wheelchair bound crack dealer and Dr Dre as a rogue cop [a bit like Ice T in Law and Order only scarey.]


If you don’t believe me about Snoop Dogg, start watching about 5 minutes in – I nearly cried laughing. Sadly I promised Carrie that she could have Snoop and I would stick with R Kelly yesterday in Jerk City but it was kind of a fake promise – I was secretly thinking “Yeah I will say it here for arguments sake but deep down we know Snoop is mine.” So sorry Carrie. I lied in the name of love.

Other people being fake in town have got found out big time tho’. XXCENSOREDXX got caught out telling XXCENSOREDXX one thing and then telling XXCENSOREDXX something so different it’s laughable. I have screen grabs of both conversations where XXCENSOREDXX tells the story and the poor quality lying is just embarrassing. LOSER.

But back to Denzel Washingtons and his acting ability. If it wasn’t for the poor acting of Ethan Hawke and his jarring appearance every time he was on screen I could have been lead to believe that this was a real life portrayal of the ghetto so convincing was Denzel. He continued to employ his stiff neck head bobbing thing that Bill Cosby also uses to great effect when making a serious point. The midnight murderers who played their roles with balaclavas and big black van were neither predictable or an overused archetype in a Hollywood movie. They way Denzel’s body convulsed as he was being riddled with bullets from automatic weapons what definitely watching the whole movie for.

I would have loved to watch the movie the whole way through in Spanish:

I was talking Jo Apps last night who is in Philadelphia and loving it I understand. We discussed the public physical fight between two men in Fabric the other night. As Jo Apps said “What is London coming to with all this violence going on? Everyone is going to be running round with guns come picnic season!” I have to say that I have witnessed the harsh reality of how life could be when watching Training Day if everyone doesn’t take a step back and a deep breath. If you haven’t seen it already I implore you to watch Training Day, the “Cool and exciting” and “Cracking cop drama… refreshing to see a thriller worthy of the label” for which Denzel Washington received an Acadamy Award in 2001 for his Leading Role for some home truths and watch Good triumph over Evil.
