    Blue Note gets invaded...

    I just picked up Otis Jackson Jr's "Shades of Blue: Madlib Invades Blue Note". Madlib is a producer who was granted access to the Blue Note vaults for this release. It's not a mixtape - but Madlib 're-interprets' many Blue Note classics. There are also numerous Blue Note artists on the...

    New Aphex Twin:26 Mixes For Cash

    I picked this up on Tuesday. It's not really "new" Aphex Twin per se, but as the title implies, it's 26 remixes done for money. There are tracks by Jesus Jones, Nine Inch Nails, and Aphex Twin spread over 2 discs. The first disc is what I've listened to the most so far. Really mellow and...

    Kool Keith revives Dr. Octagon

    Wow, Dr. Octagon is my favorite hip-hop CD, so I don't know how I missed this story. Here's the link: Kool Keith makes a questionable decision This news really really bummed me out.:frowning: :frowning: Not only is Keith backing off on his promise to never release another Dr. Octagon album (he...

    For all the other hip-hop 'headz' on the forum, this is just a friendly reminder that the new J5 album "Power In Numbers" is released tomorrow. Circuit City had it in their ad for $10.99, Best Buy in their ad for $11.99

    Where to buy Out-of-Print CD's...

    Hey gang, I've been having a heck of a time finding an OOP CD. It's a Kool Keith/Godfather Don collaboration, under the name of the Cenobites. Anyhow, it was pressed on Vinyl and CD in 1995 (I think) and the label, Fondle 'Em, has been disbanded. I've found one website that has the...

    New DJ Shadow: The Private Press

    It's been over 5 years since DJ Shadow released Endtroducing. I've tried to pick up other projects he's been involved in, from UNKLE to Product Placement. So I was really really really anticipating Private Press. I got it early (last night) and have listened to most of it, and plan on...

    Medal of Honor: Frontline (early impressions)

    Well imagine my surprise as I roll out of bed this afternoon to the hollering of "FedEx!!! FedEx here!!!" I went outside and Mr. FedEx guy handed me my Medal of Honor Frontline game. (Thank you for the free overnight shipping, EBGames!) I played through the first level, and made it to the...

    A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory

    I know it's an old CD, but I finally got around to picking this up at a used CD shop. (A fellow HTF'er has given it tremendously high praise, so I figured I should check it out.) I wish I hadn't waited so long. I worry a bit that Tribe can be looked over nowadays in favor of acts like Bubba...

    Wanna Buy A Monkey (new Dan the Automator)

    Hey gang, Seems like Dan's been working overtime lately, with Lovage, Gorillaz, a beats album with El-P that should be out later this year, and this disc which came out this past Tuesday. It's a 'mixtape session' of some his work, and some other acts he enjoys. Deltron 3030's 'Positive...

    Parappa the Rapper 2

    Hey gang, After finally getting done with FFX, I needed a nice, fun, laid-back game to play. As a huge fan of the first game, I figured Parappa 2 would fit the bill. It has, but I'd still call the game a minor letdown. There are only 8 levels, no hidden characters (just some different...

    Insomniac w/Dave Attell

    Does anybody else watch this show? I try to catch it as often as possible, plus I just saw an ad that new episode's will be coming soon. I get a kick out of the places Dave goes to, from S+M clubs to misc. bars and clubs, it's fun watching him with people on the streets. What a job to have. I...

    post-FFX withdrawl syndrome...(spoilers)

    Hey gang, as the thread title suggests, I just finished FFX and will soon be wondering what to do with all the extra time. I'll be going into FFX withdrawl. I know there is another Final Fantasy X thread around, but I didn't want to turn it into a spoiler discussion, so I started a new one...

    NBA 2K2 for PS2

    Hey fella's. I just got this from EBGames yesterday. It is everything I hoped and more!:D :emoji_thumbsup: I've been a fan of the series since the games for Dreamcast, and it's made the transition to PS2 pretty damn well. The NBA 2K games have really upped the ante on basketball simulation...

    Pootie Tang - What a great flick!

    Hey all, I just got this disc. It stars Lance Crouther as Pootie Tang, a man so cool he speaks his own language. Chris Rock is in it (Pootie Tang started on his show) as is Wanda Sykes (another vet of the Chris Rock show.) Louis C.K. wrote and directed. The plot centers around a group of...

    Metal Gear 2's Dog Tags Promotion...

    Hey gang, Sorry if this should be in the official thread, but this isn't really about the game per se, but a cool promo that Konami did over the summer. If you went to a Konami website, you could enter your name, age, sex, blood type, etc. If you were a lucky person, your name would appear on...

    Lovage (aka the new Dan the Automator)

    Hey gang. I'm not really sure how big of a following Dan the Automator has here on the HTF, but a CD he produced just came out this past Tuesday. It's called: Nathaniel Merriweather presents... Lovage: Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By The last time Dan called himself Nathaniel...

    Aphex Twin: Drukqs

    Hey gang, I got this yesterday. I've listened to part of it - it's a two disc set, so I listened to the first few tracks on each. Disc 1 starts off with a laid-back ambient track. I was kind of taken aback, I'm used to the opening tracks on "Come to Daddy," "Richard D. James" and "Windowlicker"...

    Fugazi: The Argument

    Hey all, I just got this today, but only had the chance to listen to the first 3 tracks. The first thing I noticed was that track 2 (the first track is w/out music) is a lot harder than what I'm used to from Fugazi. The drums kicked a lot more than on albums like 13 Songs or even End Hits. I...

    Castlevania Chronicles

    Hey gang. I finally got this yesterday. This game is AWESOME. It's a remake of the game on the old Japanese PC X6800 system. In other words, it's Castlevania one, slightly altered. There are 2 more levels, plus all the old levels are longer. I could get to Dracula on the NES version with a...

    DJ Shadow - new album?

    Hey gang - I was just browsing CDnow and saw that he has an album "expected for release" on October 16. It's entitles "Camel Bobsled Race." They had no other info. Does anyone know if this is an import? It was a $20 disc, so I thought maybe it comes out in England first and CDnow is offering...

    Startup.Com

    I checked this out last night, and it comes out on Tuesday. Startup.Com is a documentary about 2 20-somethings who start up govworks.com a website to pay your parking tickets online, and interact with government. It's a great behind-the-scenes look of the dot.commerce craze. It's one of those...

    odd cover tunes...

    I don't know why I thought of this, but I wanted to come up with a list of bands whose choice of cover tunes just made you go...Huh? For instance, my own personal favorite cover tune: 1. Revolting Cocks - Do Ya Think I'm Sexy. - The first time I heard Al Jourgenson singing the refrain I...

    Devil May Cry Demo

    Well, I just got done playing through this tonight and WOW. The graphics are gorgeous, the sound is impressive, and it plays very well. The game seems to be very action-oriented, and parts of it feel like a very amped-up Onimusha. (I think some of the swordplay gave me that impression.) Capcom...

    Castlevania Chronicles

    I'm just curious if anyone has played this yet. I know it was released before on a now-defunct system (the XR68000?)From what I understand, some levels from the original Castlevania make an appearance, but are more difficult. I'm a Castlevania nut, but only the 2D versions. The 3D ones for N64...

    SNES 10th anniversary

    I got the latest issue of EGM a few weeks ago (I got the one with the limited edition cover) and it had a nice feature on the SNES 10th anniversary. Well, it took a while for it to sink in that it has been 10 years already. To me, SNES is the near pinnacle of gaming. From the controller design...

    re-released Final Fantasy Tactics?

    Hi all. I've never played Tactics, but have played every other FF game released on US soil. I know this game is tough to find, other than on Ebay. I read in EGM that is was to be released under the PSX "Greatest Hits" collection. So the price is around $20. But gamestop had it listed for $25...

    new Fugazi album???

    Hi all. I was just over at allmusic, and came across a Fugazi album called "The Argument." It had no information, other than its date of release is 2001. So I went over to the Dischord site and it had no mention of it. And CDNow doesn't list it as a pre-order. Does anyone know if this album is...

    Phantasy Star Online ver. 2

    Hi all. I know some of us used to get together for PSO, (my name was Dodekahedron) and was wondering if anyone had planned on getting PSO 2. I was going to, but then Sega instituted the pay-to-play deal. I know $15 for 3 months isn't a big deal, but what bugs me is sega is charging $40 for the...

    Kool Keith (and his numerous aliases)

    Hi all. I was wondering if anyone knew of a site that would tell me ALL of his aliases and what projects he used those aliases on. These are some I know of: Dr. Octagon - Dr. Octagonacolygyst Dr. Dooom - First Come First Served Black Elvis - (I forget the CD title) Sinister 6000 - A Much...
