Analyze This :: Recent Video Drops From The World Of DOOMonFILM

Slowly but surely, I’ve been picking up momentum over at the DOOMonFILM YouTube channel.  Out of my last four videos, three in particular feel like I’m finding my voice… while my quick thought-share and starting five lineup video for Space Jam : A New Legacy was a bit of a throwaway vid, the other three hold important places in terms of my creative drive and ability.

My deep dive into Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is a chance to explain why that film stands as my all-time favorite film, not to mention one that unveils new treasures with each viewing experience.  My analysis of Ratcatcher 2 from The Suicide Squad through the lens of the anti-villain not only stood as one of the pieces of analysis I am happiest with, but one of the quickest turnarounds in terms of film release to idea inception to production to release.  My most recent drop, a setup of The 400 Blows as direct (albeit subtle) inspiration for the films Capernaum and Juice, will probably not make my channel blow up, but it is an idea that I have been sitting on for a while, with the discovery of Capernaum helping me to flesh out the idea fully.

If you’ve not done so already, head over to the DOOMtubeATX YouTube channel and subscribe, like all the videos, and comment that you can from the blog page.

Funky Concepts :: Protextor Joins The Weird Rap Discussion Gang To Deep Dive Hip-Hop Concept Albums

By now, you should know the drill when it comes to the Weird Rap Discussion Gang… the conversation topics span the gamut, and the discussions go deep.  Recently, I had the pleasure of inviting the homie Protextor to join Th’MoleBeverly Fre$h and myself for an episode of the Weird Rap Discussion Gang where we focused on concept albums, which are basically albums with some sort of connectivity throughout that attempt to present an idea in a long-form manner.  With Dr. OctagonecologystSplendor & MiseryFunhouse and Because The Internet on the table, you know that we had a good time, so check out the episode, leave a like and comment your thoughts or favorite concept album, and help spread the word by sharing this episode around!

Plug Tunin’ :: Weird Rap Discussion Gang Does A Deep Dive On De La Soul

Even before news broke that De La Soul may finally see the Tommy Boy portion of their catalog available on streaming sites and digital storefronts as early as this winter, the members of the Weird Rap Discussion Gang had De La on the brain.  After mentioning them at several intervals in the weeks prior, the collective decided to do a special two part deep dive into the Posdnous (aka Plug Won) and Dave (aka Plug Two), the main lyrical components of the groundbreaking hip-hop trio.  For the respective episodes, each member of the Weird Rap Discussion Gang chose their favorite verse from each MC, a monumental undertaking in its own right, and shared their thoughts on what makes each verse so special.  If you’re one of those people who believes that De La Soul‘s place in hip-hop is underrated, if you’re a fan of innovative and forward-thinking lyricism, or if you just love hearing hip-hop heads talk about hip-hop, then check out both of these episodes, leave likes and comments, and subscribe to the Weird Rap YouTube channel for more great content.

Double Feature :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Drops A Duo Of Film-Based YouTube Videos

Recently, the homie Big Black Guy Reviews and myself decided to tackle a review of the Richard Pryor classic Bustin’ Loose in the wake of Cicely Tyson‘s passing.  Ironically, what started as a quick examination of a seemingly light-hearted Pryor offering not only sent us down a number of rabbit holes, but ended up taking so long that it became bookended by the passing of Richard Pryor collaborator and friend Paul Mooney… and once you hit the end of the video, you’ll realize the madness is far from done.

With that collaboration under the belt, not to mention a number of projects outside of the film realm being wrapped up or nearing completion, I turned my attention back to the DOOMonFILM YouTube channel and decided to produce a re-entry video of sorts.  Rather than jumping headlong back into some crazy observation or theory video, I decided it might be beneficial to share a short list of films that I currently would hold as my top ten, and thus, my latest DOOMonFILM entry was created : 

If you enjoy either of the videos (or maybe even both), then like them up, comment then up and share them around! If you’re really into what we’re putting down, then don’t hesitate to subscribe to Big Black Guy ReviewsYouTube channel and DOOMonFILM, and as always, support your local and independent creatives!

Deep Diving :: The #WeirdRapDiscussionGang And Friends Go In-Depth On ODB’s ‘Return To The 36 Chambers : The Dirty Version’

Being a part of the #WeirdRapDiscussionGang has been a true honor, but of all the episodes we’ve done, the one that really meant the most to me was our discussion centered around Ol’ Dirty Bastard and his debut album, the instant classic and Grammy nominated Return to the 36 Chambers : The Dirty Version.  Th’MoleBeverly Fre$h and myself welcomed Skiz Fernando and Tokyo Cigar to the fold as we all provided our insight and personal experiences with the album, and then Th’Mole went the extra step of contacting and interviewing Buddha Monk for additional insider insight into Dirty‘s art, craft and the making of his debut.  Definitely check this one out, leave a like and a comment, share it around for everyone to enjoy, and most importantly, subscribe to the Weird Rap YouTube channel so you never miss out!

Square Biz :: Deuce Malone Drops Science And Drops Names In Latest Vlog Post

One of the best aspects of being a native Austinite and growing up in the central Texas area is the wealth of creative and highly driven individuals that populate the area.  One of my long-standing friends and creative collaborators, Deuce Malone of The World of Deuce online, clearly mirrors that sentiment, as he is known for sharing posts all across social media sharing the secrets behind his rise into an industry position that suits him well.  After a recent spotlight in Voyage AustinDeuce decided to immediately pay it forward (and in some ways, pay it back) by dropping a video on his self-titled YouTube channel called How I Got a Job in Radio that breaks down the importance of not only creating a network of like-minded individuals, but how key it is to maintain that network as well as just how easy it can be to create one if your intentions are correct.  If you’re looking for business tips, entertainment insight or sincere motivation, then subscribe to Deuce Malone on YouTube, but regardless, check out this video and make those key adjustments in your life!

Weirding Out :: The #WeirdRapDiscussionGang Keeps The Momentum Going

Having the honor of being a core member of the #WeirdRapDiscussionGang is truly amazing, as it affords me at least one opportunity a week to complete go untethered in terms of my love for hip-hop music.  We’ve been putting in a lot of work over at the Weird Rap YouTube channel, not to mention expanding our reach for the #WeirdRapDiscussionGang series into the podcast world, and our latest few episodes have been dynamite… we’ve recently covered science-fiction-based hip-hop, went down the rabbit hole of viewer suggestions with super special guest David Liebe Hart and did a deep dive into the work of Philly-based MC Tierra Whack.  If you love hip-hop music, YouTube commentary or sincere entertainment, then get locked into the Weird Rap network sooner than later, and if it really speaks to you, then be a supporter over at the Weird Rap Patreon page.  Big ups to Th’Mole for putting everything together and to Beverly Fre$h for always having an interesting point of view.

Hit Singularity :: Th’Mole Hits The Masses With ‘Rise Of The Mole People’

Over the past 6 months or so, I’ve formed a pretty solid working relationship with Th’Mole.  After a few requests to take part in remixes and compilations, he recently reached out to me to collaborate on a full project (keep your eyes and ears open for that down the road), and not too long after that, I was invited to be a part of the #WeirdRapDiscussionGang, a semi-regular YouTube show and podcast centering around discussions about often overlooked aspects of hip-hop culture and music.  With my awareness raised on Th’Mole, I recently became hip to his latest project, the instrumental giant Rise of The Mole People.  His signature, epic, cinematic sound is present and accounted for, and if one takes the song titles into account while listening, it’s not all that difficult to envision your own movie in your mind to go with the sonic stimulus.  If you’ve got a few bucks to support, definitely do so for this project, but at least give it a listen and spread the word about it if nothing else!
