Mama said knock you out!

Pic of the week. Nuff said!

A galaxy far away!

I got a new piece framed up last week, an original 1977 1 Sheet Star Wars poster. The level of detail that went into the artwork is amazing when you see it up close. Time to find some space on the walls for it, or maybe I'll just rotate the stock of works already hanging.

Visually & Sonically Delicious

That's exactly what you get when you attend a Hot Peas and Butta event. Great sounds and rare visuals combined to bring you a very unique experience. I've been in the lab for a good part of the afternoon chopping up visuals from the extensive collection on VHS to put something together special for the upcoming SXSW party. Hard work going through these tapes but somebodies gotta do it.

The Great Cow Chase

So it's been a minute since I've had a great burger that was worth blogging about but I've had 2 in the last month. The first that I really need to talk about was one that I had recently in Laussane Switzerland from a spot called Holy Cow, and holy cow was that a great burger, Jules! Starting with the bun which was some sort of a wheat bun not too much dough and baked on site. Now lets talk about the 100% Swiss beef topped with bacon and cheddar cheese. There's not much to say except damn, this goes on my list within the top 3 burgers falling right behind Fathers Office in L.A. Everything was perfect from the quality, texture and taste down to there being minimal greese. Top that with fries and your all set!

"Figure" it out.

Recently found out about an upcoming line from Triad Toys based on the film Lone Wolf and Cub, you know, Shogun Assiassin?! If you don't know what I'm talking about then stop reading this now and do your homework! Anyway, this is the Bentenrai Brothers trio of "Masters of Death" figures from the series which looks great.

It's All Love

Valentines Day is just around the corner and normally I would have done a Valentines Day mix for my $2 Soul Show podcast ( but I've been traveling so much that I haven't had time to do one. So instead I'm dropping a single track which happens to be one of my favorites and dedicate it to all those in love on some Hot Peas and Butta shit!

What's in those German crates?!

Had time to get some diggin in while in Germany this past week. Dude was kind of pricey but I got some nice pieces though. The owner also had a serious picture sleeve 45 selection which of course I had to cop a few things from. Shouts to the homies from Intruders for taking me to their spot!

Let the "Good Times" roll!

37 years ago today one of the greatest sitcoms of all time aired on television, Good Times. Still til this day I enjoy watching episodes of this show and is just as funny as the first time.

Finally, the new "Sound of Film" mix is up and this one is dedicated to "Passports and Decoder Rings" if you get my drift.

Head over the Hot Peas and Butta site to stream or download the mix.
