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.

Topic Roulette :: …&More… Stop By ‘The Hot Conversation’ Podcast

OVRLD‘s The Hot Conversation podcast is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite podcasts out there, local or otherwise.  The latest episode contains almost the perfect storm of ingredients and topics : Protextor and JRo (as per usual), Scuare and no1mportant (…&more…), and topics ranging from DVD rot to racism in the Star Wars universe to Star Trek color shirt significance to sexy Prince posters, and all kinds of fun stops in between.  This had me laughing so hard at work, I had to make sure to keep the laughs down.  Great stuff.

Reflection Time :: Recognition Via An Invitation, Or OVRLD.COM’s Best Of 2016

best-of-austin-2016

The awesome guys and gals at OVRLD.com have always been wonderful and supportive people, and they have gone out of their way on numerous occasions to shine alight on the work of Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice.  Earlier this month, however, Morgan gave me a compliment he may or may not have even realized he was giving me by inviting me to take part in OVRLD‘s spin on the end of year list, Our Austin Music Friends Picks For Best of 2016.  While explicitly stating these were the music friends, one thing that the guys at the OVRLD blog have always hammered in to me is that they love my blog over here, and Morgan never lets me forget that I have built up quite a bit of blogging clout I may not even realize I have.

Cut to yesterday, when the article drops.  There I am, top placement on the list, setting the tone for the entire article.  Then I began to notice other folks reaffirming choices I made on my list, almost automatically.  Then the props for the Butcher Bear and BoomBaptist collaboration video I did started rolling in.  THEN the thank you’s begin to roll in via social media for the local choices I made.  Yesterday was truly a gratifying day, and I owe it all to Morgan and the folks at OVRLD for finally allowing me to see what’s been in front of me the entire time.
