Lost Time :: HELP ME Nears Release, Trailer Arrives

Earlier this year, I released my first true short film, the suspenseful REPOSSESSION.  It was a wonderful personal achievement, in the sense that I went from talking about ‘making films one day’ to having a film under my belt.  The experience of making REPOSSESSION taught me quite a bit about myself and the creative process.  So much, in fact, that less than a year later (within the same year, as a matter of fact), I am releasing my second short film.  HELP ME centers around a crew of abandoned location explorers that stumble upon a phenomenon they cannot comprehend.  The trailer is above, and keep an eye on the Upcoming Shows page of the website for information on screenings.

Productive Procrastination :: Scuare Resurfaces ‘Off Days Vol. I’

a3439646198_10

During the days that Soundcloud was cool, Austin-based MC Scuare took it upon himself to go 18 weeks, one song a week.  Like most, he has moved on from Soundcloud, but that did not make those creations any less relevant.  After realizing that most people had no access to the lion’s share of that material, a decision was made to compile all of the songs into the project Off Days Vol. I.  It’s a free download, so why would you not cop it?  Your only obligation would be to tell a friend to do the same, and believe me, your ears will thank you for it.

Funny People :: Chillhouse BBQ Comedy Edition Hits YouTube

Back in June, the Chillhouse collective decided to throw one of their famous BBQs with a focus on stand-up comedy.  The event was a blast, and many funny people (including myself) got up to do sets.  Stand-up was one of my first loves, but I have not performed it as much as I would like, so it was nice to get an opportunity, no matter how shaky my set may be.  That being said, there are quite a few funny people and funny moments above, so dig in!

Powers Combined :: NGHT HCKLRS + Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Collaborate Live

Many months ago, an OVRLD hosted show was my introduction to the duo NGHT HCKLRS, and I was instantly impressed.  I only DJ’d that night, so they had no idea what I did lyrically, but I knew immediately that I wanted to collaborate with these guys.  I kept in touch with them over time, and last week, they hit me up with some tracks and an opportunity to perform with them at Kick Butt Coffee in Austin.  Needless to say, I jumped on the opportunity.  Above is the live video of that portion of the show, and hopefully it is the beginning of what can be a powerful collaborative project.  Stay tuned, I will certainly keep you in the loop with any possible developments.  Enjoy this for now, like it, and share it, and maybe we’ll see more of this in the future.

Strange Fiction :: EVOLVE Drops ‘Life’s A…’ Visual

Props to EVOLVE for being both one of the hardest working cats in the game and one of the folks most willing to collaborate with others.  His latest project, in fact, will be a series of collaborative songs with many, many recognizable names in the hip-hop gamut.  The first single, Life’s A…, features Deacon the Villian (of CunninLynguists fame) and JunClassic, and your’s truly was lucky enough to get the call for producing a music video.  ‘Public domain science fiction’ would describe the motif, but believe me, this track is dope.  Check it out, give it a like, and give it a share!
