so I found this hilarious video the other day, it's a live action version of Paperboy, that video game. Awesome stuff. It was on Ultragrrl's blog, who used to write for Spin and I guess is sort of a famous blogger. She's on "Best Week Ever" and stuff sometimes.

In other news, I was listening to LL Cool J's first album, "Radio" awhile ago. It's so awesome. The beats are really sparse and simple and catchy, and they're all from the old 808 drum machine. They're so cool sounding. There's a bunch of samples here. My favorites are "I Can't Live Without My Radio," "You Can't Dance," and "Rock the Bells." And he was only 17 when he made it, which is pretty impressive. Most reviews give it five stars, and Spin named it to their top 100 of the last 20 years. The weird thing is that most of the songs are about how def he is, and the rest are these very shy, teenagey songs about him trying unsuccesfully to get girls. And this is before his mom told him to knock you out.

I LOVED "Paperboy" as a kid.

It was so cool peeling back the verneer of seemingly normal suburban life to see the freaky shit going on underneath it.

Word up, J^4. I liked the breakdancer guy and the haunted house.
