Podcasts @ BHYPHEN.COM

I finished redesigning the Podcasts section of the site last week. Every podcast that I'm involved with is here now and well as my guest appearances on other podcast.
  • Hip-Hop Manifesto - Hosted with Matthew "Chivalry" Spencer. Chiv and I take on random topics in the world of hip-hop.
  • Hyphen Nation - A potpourri type show that covers whatever I feel like talking about. All my Victory Jumpoff Radio and Two Webshooters & A Microphone episode are housed here as well.
  • Trike Adventures - Hosted with Anthony Sellers and Thomas Crawford. A roundtable podcast, I (try to) moderate by bringing various topics to talk about, but most of the time everyone makes fun of me. NSFW.
  • The Slobberknocker Chronicles - Hosted with Thomas Crawford. A wrestling podcast, Thomas and I discuss the current state of affairs in the WWE.
  • Moves Like Curtis: The Podcast - Hosted by Thomas Deja. Rising from Tom's Moves Like Curtis column, this is a NFL podcast covering the latest in league events.
  • Nocturne Travel Agency Podcast - Hosted by Thomas Deja. Tom sits down with a great collection of authors and gets to the nitty gritty of what makes them tick.
  • Mollyfog The Music - Hosted with Thomas Deja. Tom and I give each other 3 songs to listen to and we record our thoughts here. And talk about women. Episodes 1 and 2 coming soon.
  • Guest Appearances - Every trackable appearance I've made on other podcasts.

My Week On Reddit: 7/28/14

The moon landing conspiracy! Jeff Bridges! Sounds you don't hear anymore! Elementary school cool! And more!

Song Of The Moment: J. Cole - Is She Gon Pop

I've been bumping J. Cole's Born Sinner consistently since last June. I really didn't give Truly Yours 3 any burn until recently, when my iPod adapter for my car died again. I think any of the five Truly Yours 3 tracks could have made the official album, but this one right here is TRULY special. See what I did there?

Undiscovered Country: Ground Up - Let's Ride

Another gem from my listening session with E, this one comes from Philly's Ground Up. It should be on every radio station around because it's definitely a summer banger for sure. Get the single from iTunes.

Undiscovered Country: Mike Farrock Millz - Million Little Diamonds

I went to E's for the first time in a month and he was going through some new music he had been sent. This was one of the emails.

This song is featured on his album M3.

The Dime Session 7/25/14

In this 'Session: a new Kanye interview, Mark Bousquet's (unfinished!) trip to Martha's Vineyard, a bunch of romantic comedy pieces, Batman moves into Gotham City, and of course, more!

Catalog Friday - B Hyphen - Ain't Right

FINALLY. New Catalog Friday.

In between Thunderstorm and volume Three, my friend Billy Privitera was sending me underground beats as an alternative from the usual mainstream instrumentals I would use. Out of the handful he sent me, Diverse's "Ain't Right", produced by RJD2, was the only one that grabbed me.

I feel like I say this about most of my songs, but I dig the hell out of this one (I think I dig the songs that no one mentions the most though). Bonus points for the Obama mention in 2007. I credit Chiv for the awareness though.

B Hyphen - A Journey Of Great Power & Responsibility (Official SAS Video)

Continuing the SAS videos, I did the first verse of "A Journey Of Great Power & Responsibility" a cappella while Aaliyah was asleep the other evening. Please excuse the shakiness. One of my favorite verses from SYU.

Talking Out The Dead: "A"

Kelen Conley: So the gang’s all back together at Terminus but is it really the sanctuary that all those signs claimed it to be? Is Daryl running from his friends in the picture above or is he running with them? Who got told to look at the flowers in this Season 4 finale?

I Said It First: Jennifer Lawrence + Emma Stone = Comedy Gold

As I do almost every morning at work, I was emailing Heather. I mentioned recently seeing Crazy Stupid Love and she replied with this:
Emma Stone is a G-D American gem.
I couldn't argue with that logic and after she mentioned Stone's appearances on Andrew Garfield's SNL episode, I had a brainstorm: Jennifer Lawrence and Stone NEED to be the next great comedy team.

Now, while all of you scurry off to your typewriters and whatnot, I decided to throw out a list of films that they could remake while new material was being written. Hell, they could write their own films in between these films. All the better. Without further ado:
  • Bad Boys.
  • 48 Hours.
  • Step Brothers.
  • Men In Black
  • Talledega Nights.
  • Back To The Future.
  • Ghostbusters. (Lawrence. Stone. Cohan. Caplan.)
  • The Blues Brothers.
  • And for your consideration...SHAWSHANK.
Heather talked me off the Shawshank ledge. While I think they could pull it off, maybe that's one classic they could leave alone. So instead, they could just remake the Murphy/M. Lawrence vehicle Life.

You want this to happen. Hell, any thing that has some type of life on this planet wants this to happen. Someone get me their agents email addresses. I'll leave you with one more:
  • Coming To America.
Would there even be a point for anyone else to try after this?
