It's okay Stewie... I have some things to get done! Busy work week since I'm heading "Home for the Holidays" I'm on a bit of a Holiday Hiatus so to speak. In the mean time, everyone make sure you enjoy yourselves, be safe, eat alot, and above all Support Indie!
Also, be on the lookout! ME/BIMMG/Universal "The Commonwealth" Compilation to hit the streets in 2010! It's a new decade folks and we call the next ten! It hasn't been confirmed as to how many songs there are going to be, or who's all on it, but this is still the biggest release to date! Do expect Monster Entertainment artists to bless it along with some surprised guests... bwahahahaha suspense right before the new year! Anyways, I'm off, Happy Holidays!
P.S. Go Eagles, Go Browns!

Well I just pinched myself for the 33rd time and yep... the Browns did just beat the Steelers in Cleveland last night. And, not only did the Browns beat the Steelers during the worst season that I can remember them EVER having, they beat them after a Steelers Superbowl year! Oh wait, there's more! They've also knocked the defending "champs" out of the playoffs? Sweet Jesus this is like the best Christmas present ever! Seeing that grin on Hines Ward's face replaced with red watery eyes now has exceeded the feeling that I had back in '89 when I unwrapped that electric race track with the loops!!! So many columnist and radio hosts are trying to tear this down, but you know what, I can't hear them right now. This is our week dammit! This is our rivalry! This was our Superbowl!
2-0 in bowl games this year is how I look at it. First we win the Ugly bowl and now the Superbowl. As far as I'm concerned this season has been redeemed! Those columnist/hosts, who I will not name by the way, don't know what it's like to be a Browns fan. They have no clue what it's like to wait almost 10 years for a home win in a heated rivalry. Maybe they don't understand the passion the people of NE Ohio have for their sports teams. We're full of pride, and we are some of the best, if not THE best fans in the world! For those annoyed I say "Hear us bark loudly and get over it!" For those celebrating, I say that this is something to finally build off of. This is something that we can now refer to for this new regime.
I've never witnessed a game in my life that has saved so many jobs. I know we don't know for sure, but could this have been the game that saved the football careers of Eric Mangini, Rob Ryan, Brian Dabol, Brady Quinn and Randy Lerner? I'm sure that there are actually more names to name but those are at the forefront of my mind. What a huge win for those guys! What a huge game for Joshua Cribbs who has been playing his heart out for a new contract! Ahhh soak it up soak it up! Break out the Browns gear! Turn up the Black Eyed Peas! And, for those Steeler's fans screaming "You guys are just 2-11 get over yourselves!" Does it really matter?! Last time I checked, we will both be home watching the playoffs this year!

"We were on board to do this track for Jay-Z's last album. We talked to Jay-Z on the phone, and he was telling us that he wanted us to do whatever we wanted. We came up with a beat and a chorus, and it ended up that they didn't use it. Maybe we can do something in the future." -- MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden
I'm feeling the collaboration ideas originating from the Jigga Man's brain. I would go out on a limb and say that it had nothing to do with the track they sent but everything to do with tha fact that it's hard land a spot on Blueprint. An overflow of hits is always a good thing right?

From Billboard.com News:
YouTube sensation and former "Britain's Got Talent" contestant Susan Boyle's debut album "I Dreamed a Dream" opens at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 701,000 copies sold in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan -- the best sales week for an album in the U.S. this year.
2009's previous high-water mark came when Eminem's "Relapse" sold 608,000 in its opening week. In fact, Boyle's sales frame is the best the chart has seen since AC/DC's "Black Ice" bowed with 784,000 upon its release in October 2008.

I've never really been all that fast at putting puzzles together but damn this one sure makes sense to me. Why not? It's not like Brian Daboll is doing a stellar job. I say oust Daboll and bring in the guy that truly believe in Quinn. He is a proven coordinator, and has been to the big dance before.
Charlie Weis: Cleveland Browns' New Offensive Coordinator?
by Erin McLaughlin Senior Analyst (Bleacher Report)
When Brady Quinn met with media on Wednesday, the highlight wasn't him talking about his breakout performance on Sunday. It also wasn't about how he is preparing for the Cincinnati Bengals. Instead he spent a lot of the time defending his college coach, Charlie Weis. (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/297162-cleveland-browns-should-hire-charlie-weis-as-offensive-coordinator)
There is the old saying that one man's trash is another man's treasure. That clearly looks like the case with Notre Dame, Cleveland Browns, and Charlie Weis. For that reason, the Browns should be talking with Weis the minute Notre Dame fires him.
The minute's here... go and get 'em!

OMG OMG OMG how can you NOT be excited?!!! NJ is going SOLO?! I CAN DIE NOW. No, seriously... someone kill me.
Nick Jonas & the Administration, (HIS NEW GROUP) which features former members of Prince’s New Power Generation, will release their album, Who I Am, on Feb. 2. The group will make its live debut performing a single of the same name on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! special Dec. 2 on CBS.
Prince's New Power Generation?! Not really sure what to say... here :) :( :/ :? :&
By the way I saw clips of Prince at the Vikings game this past Sunday. He looked completely uninterested and bored out of his mind. Next time give me the effing tix! Have a glass of that big A bottle of wine behind you... be social. Plus, the announcer got his name wrong.
Laughter? My cup runneth over.
I'm such a hater...

My phone takes okay pics... Busy week! I had The Blockley Tuesday, Johnny Brenda's Wednesday, and I still have The Spot with Revolution, I Love You this Saturday! FANTASTIC
Anyways, wanted to thank Matt Seeker for the headz up on the show. For those that don't know Mr. Seeker, he writes an awesome blog entitled Phillyosophy (www.phillyosophy.net). Make sure you stop by and check it out! Matt also told me an interesting story last night, which now that I'm sober and it's still funny I feel it necessary to share. Matt lived on top of a video rental store. The one video game (I believe he said PS2) that he rented... upon its return to the store had to be sled under the door because it was ALMOST A YEAR LATE! How effing funny is that? Dude lived on top of the store and still couldn't return it on time. HA
OK, that is it for my story telling, but I did want to mention one more thing!

Ravens 60, Browns 3? That was one prediction last week from a Sirius NFL radio host. It's an outlandish suggestion, but as much as it turns my stomach to think about it actually happening is it really that unlikely? This has been a disaster of a season. One of which I still claim is the worst that I have ever experienced. However, I will still probably watch the game... cause that's what fans do... they torture themselves.
Is this the guy's last chance to prove his worth? I say it is, even given the circumstances. I mean tonight's game isn't really any different than when the 300 Spartans stood up against the Persian Empire of Xerxes I in the Battle of Thermopylae. Only let's replace the Spartans with this year's Browns team... :(
Let's take a look at some other predictions. And, these are from Cleveland!
Plain Dealer Staff Predictions
Mary Kay Cabot
Ravens 30, Browns 9
Taking the boycott to heart, the offense doesn't show up until the third quarter.
Ravens 24, Browns 9
My hunch is the Ravens could win this game without throwing a pass.
Ravens 19, Browns 4
Randy Lerner seeking advice from Condoleezza Rice and two guys dressed like Marmaduke.
Ravens 24, Browns 10 Brady Quinn does get the of- fense into the end zone, which is progress.
Ravens 27, Browns 13
Jamal Lewis shows up in Ravens' locker room before the game, an nounces he's seeking asylum.
Are you still ready for some football?

Mondays are my busiest day. Especially after a Phillies WS weekend. So many things to talk about with unfortunately not enough time to cover them all. With that being said, here's a quick peek inside my mind this Monday morning after a Halloween 2009.
Dammit Dammit Dammit
" ?????????????????????????? "
I can't takes no mo!!!
A protest? Seriously? How bout the silent treatment? I heard it works better.
On a brighter note:
Great show Friday... Great Show Saturday! The Quelle Source and Long Walk Home know how to put on a damn good concert. For those that didn't make it to The Blockley on Friday smack yourself.
There was a DC takeover for the first annual Halloween Monster Bash. Tempamental's live show is amazing. Renee Thomas, iEASi, Tempamental, Kellevents, Monster Entertainment... Pics, Vids, Recap, coming shortly.
Friday, October 30, 2009
The boys in Long Walk Home and The Quelle Source will once again don the hats, clothing and catalogues of two great rock bands for their 4th annual Halloween extravaganza this October 30th.
This year the always-entertaining, can't-miss event will take place at the fantastic Blockley Pourhouse in Philadelphia (University City), with an added bonus of NO COVER CHARGE.
A little history for the uninformed:
- In 2006, Long Walk Home jumpstarted the annual tradition by playing as the best band of all time, dressing in sharp suits as The Beatles at the as-yet-only Halloween show to take place in a kitchen.
- 2007 saw The Quelle Source adopting Led Zeppelin's sexy swagger and tight, tight clothing while Long Walk Home wore the eye liner of The Rolling Stones at the late, great Grape St. Pub, that also found each band playing solo sets and ending in a as-yet-unmatched superjam.
- 2008 found Long Walk Home growing myriad beards as The Band, while The Quelle Source donned the attire and calatogue of the ever-great Wilco at the always-narrow Doc Watson's.
2009 will, of course, be another year to remember with an interesting juxtaposition of bands. Long Walk Home will be helming a set as the outstanding Talking Heads, while The Quelle Source will once again be playing it current this year as perennial live favorites My Morning Jacket.
More info incoming, but mark your calendars now for the best night of the year that isn't Christmas!
1 full hour for each band
$2 Bud Light drafts
$2 Lionshead bottles
$2 Smirnoff flavored drinks
$3 Pumpkin ales
The Blockley Pourhouse is located in University City, click here for directions: http://theblockley.com/directions.php

Ahh, but he's so good right?! Where can we get us one of him?
This isn't Monday morning quarterback... this is May morning quarterback. Who's it gonna be? Cause dammit it has to be somebody!!!
Steelers 27 Browns 14
I'm actually going to say not bad Browns. We scored! And, against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense. I thought that the score would be worse. I knew Big Ben would have his way with our defense simply because we have a hard time sacking Ben. Our defense is predicated on getting to the quarterback. When we don't do that we don't win. Now, if only we could score (more than one touchdown)... Yes, hold off the parade. I know it's amazing that we scored a touchdown but we are going to need more than one a game to turn this thing around. Which brings me to the title of this post. Who's it gonna be???
WE HAVE 11 PICKS! LET'S USE THEM WISELY!

BILL COSBY - A MUST READ...
The Reverend Jesse Jackson almost never gets upstaged and I had never seen the Reverend Jesse Louis Jackson cry in public until last month. Jackson invited Bill Cosby to the annual Rainbow/PUSH conference for a conversation about the controversial remarks the entertainer offered on May 17 at an NAACP dinner in Washington , D.C. when America 's Jell-O Man shook things up by arguing that African Americans were betraying the legacy of civil rights victories. Cosby said 'the lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for their kids. $500 sneakers for what? But they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics!' Bill Cosby came to town and upstaged the reverend by going on the offense instead of defending his earlier remarks. Thursday morning, Cosby showed no signs of repenting as he strode across the stage at the Sheraton Hotel ballroom before a standing room only crowd. Sporting a natty gold sports coat and dark glasses, he proceeded to unload a Laundry list of black America 's self-imposed ills. The iconic actor and comedian kidded that he couldn't compete with the oratory of the Reverend but he preached circles around Jackson in their nearly hour-long conversation, delivering brutally frank one-liners and the toughest of love. The enemy, he argues, is us: "There is a time, ladies and gentlemen, when we have to turn the mirror around." Cosby acknowledged he wasn't critiquing all blacks... just the 50 percent of African Americans in the lower economic neighborhood who drop out of school, and the alarming proportions of black men in prison and black teenage mothers. The mostly black crowd seconded him with choruses of Amens. To the critics who pose, it's unproductive to air our dirty laundry in public, he responds, "Your dirty laundry gets out of school at 2:30 every day." It's cursing on the way home, on the bus, train, in the candy store. They are cursing and grabbing each other and going nowhere. The book bag is very, very thin because there's nothing in it. Don't worry about the white man, he added. I could care less about what white people think about me. . . Let them talk. What are they saying that is so different from what their grandfathers said and did to us? What is different is what we are doing to ourselves. For those who say Cosby is just an elitist who's "got his" but doesn't understand the plight of the black poor, he reminds us that, "We're going to turn that mirror around. It's not just the poor-everybody's guilty." Cosby and Jackson lamented that in the 50th years of Brown vs. Board of Education, our failings betray our legacy. Jackson dabbed away tears as he recalled the financial struggles at Fisk University, a historically black college and Jackson 's Alma mater. When Cosby was done, the 1,000 people in the room all jumped to their feet in ovation. We have shed tears too many times, at too many watershed moments before, while the hopes they inspired have fallen by the wayside. Not this time! Cosby's plea to parents: "Before you get to the point where you say 'I can't do nothing with them' , do something with them."
Teach our children to speak English. There's no such thing as "talking white". When the teacher calls, show up at the school. When the idiot box starts spewing profane rap videos; turn it off. Refrain from cursing around the kids. Teach our boys that women should be cherished, not raped and demeaned. Tell them that education is a prize we won with blood and tears, not a dishonor. Stop making excuses for the agents and abettors of black on black crime. It costs us nothing to do these things.
But if we don't, it will cost us infinitely more tears.

Yes Donovan, you do play to win.... and I appreciate that. So, with that being said, I'll stop. I'll stop making fun of you about the overtime blunder. It's erased from my mind... for now. Great job Sunday! Albeit it was against a bad team, you played like you were expected to play. Good stuff. Now, keep it going!
Kanye West, meanwhile, couldn't hijack the stage, because the rapper was a no-show. Wonder where he was?
T.I. won while in prison. The rapper, who is locked up in an Arkansas penitentiary on a federal weapons conviction, won the best collaboration award with Rhianna for the song "Live Your Life" and the album of the year award for "Paper Trail." His fiancee Tameka "Tiny" Cottle accepted his awards at the ceremony in Atlanta and read a letter by the rapper, who began serving a yearlong sentence in late May.
"Although I'm not there with you all, I'm there in spirit," Cottle quoted the rapper as writing. "My road to redemption is almost over. ... Thanks for the support."
Remember the show has been recorded and it will air 10/27/2009. Tune in cause rap group Goodie Mob performs "Cell Therapy." Ahh man... I miss those days!
Killing that damn goat must have worked! (kidding PETA)
Oh, I can't believe it! It feels different... I feel different. That was the ugliest game I've ever seen!
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP)—In a game that could only be considered an instant classic on Comedy Central, leave it to punter Dave Zastudil(notes) to help secure the Cleveland Browns’ first victory of the season.
Just don’t tell the Browns that their 6-3 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday was in any way ugly.
“The way it turned out, I thought it was beautiful,” coach Eric Mangini said of his first win with Cleveland. “It’s great. It’s fantastic. I couldn’t be happier.”
