rarely scene in daylight, let alone out in public, this normally shy creature likes to stay within the confines of his domicile preferring the company of inanimate objects, such as action figures, and 2 dimensional images, such as in anime videos and manga, rather than live human contact..
this specimen was rather bold to venture out in public but the call of the annual migration of his fellow otakus to Fanime was too strong for him to resist...he did come prepared though...dawning his somewhat stylish wrap around sunglasses to protect his eyes from the strong rays of the sun and making sure to put on extra weight to sustain his long wait for the bus trip home or the ride from his mother who would be picking him up in front of the convention center at a predetermined time.
I tried to get closer to OTAKUS MAJOR, but apparently I wandered to close to his "comfort zone" and he picked up his briefcase filled with manga(or crackers) and scurried away..but I was able to capture a rare shot of a female OTAKUS MAJOR crossing paths with this male specimen...as expected, they did not acknowledge each other
in this final picture...I attempted to hide behind the spray of the water fountains in front of the convention center and continue to observe OTAKUS MAJOR but I had pressed my luck..he had spotted me..it was an intense moment..I could do nothing but back off with my hands raised...however, in my retreat..I was able to snap one last image of this often misunderstood creature....
In the coming weeks, I will be making a trip to another Anime Convention..there, I hope to capture on film, for the first time.......WHITUSTRASHUS OTAKUS MULLETUS

One sip of this, and you'll be reciting Rollins' Black-Flag era poetry:
So I choose to share some of my recording studio hijinx...
Oh yeah & these are original compositions produced by the now defunct Subtrax crew:
music by ALSKI, 10 minute lyrics done by ME, vocals by ME background stylings by ALSKI.
DMS, ALSKI & I used to form a production crew called Subtrax. Mostly recording out of 17th & Q studios. DMS was a slave driver & he always made sure that ALSKI & I were working on music instead of joking around. Well one weekend DMS had planned a getaway with his girlfriend & ALSKI & I were left to our own devices in a recording studio, none of us can run the boards well, all I know how to do is make beats & rap, ALKSI can BARELY sing but he is one hell of beatmaker.
Long story short she was a Junior in high school & me I had already been out of high school for a year. That didn't stop me from hanging out with her though cause she was mad cute but it was frowned upon by DMS & SKI because they were all in college & shit. Anyways I eventually got with the bitch that inspired the first song, eventually I had to stop seeing the high school honey, I knew it was a disaster waiting to happen when she asked me to sign her slam book...wtf!!!??!!
Anyways I had just gotten out of a really bad relationship & I had been getting some flack from the fellas about it because I was all depressed & shit. Don't get me wrong, I NEVER was on some stalker shit. I have too much self respect for that, but the break up did hit me hard. So being a good sport I played along & me & Al recorded "Pick up the pieces (of my heart)". A song that really clowns on fools that GO TOO FAR after a break up, & believe me the lyrics in the song ARE NOT FAR FETCHED. I actually know fools that did shit like that. So enjoy because besides the other song in this post it's probably the only time you'll hear me sing unless it's in a karaoke box in Tokyo.

Coincidentally, this album is only available as a righteous 180-gram vinyl edition, although pirated CD versions have been floating around eBay for awhile.

DJ Roc Raida visits Qbert & checks out his toys then Qbert hooks Roc Raida up with an incomplete Raideen. This is a cool vid that shows some of our favorite DJs being themselves.

URB magazine Jan. Feb. 1998
the Bay Area hometown heroes invisbl skratch piklz
l-r: Mixmaster Mike, Shortkut, Qbert, D-Styles, Yogafrog
an original Sole Sides cassette I bought back in the day
before they gained the notoriety in the local hip hop scene
they put out a small ad in tha Bomb magazine
I mailed my $10 to an address in fucking DAVIS CALIFORNIA
& a week or so later I got this cassette tape
featuring DJ Shadow, Asia Born (Lyrics Born), Gift of GAb of Blackalicious
not sure but this might be like their first ever attempts at selling their music commercially
it's not even listed under their releases section on their website
learn about it new kid!!
I was out there for the Zulu Nation anniversary & bought it from the man himself in front of the New Yorker hotel!!!
I gotta find my Ron G mixtape, that's some real New York boom bap
thing is even back then I knew the Bay Area (ISP) (SBC) (ETC ETC) had the DJ thing sewed up
the NEW York mixtapes couldn't hold a candle to what the BAY AREA DJ's were doing, even back then!!!!
I went out to the garage looking for an old Qbert mixtape but found this stuff, pretty cool...

This is me trying to beat one of the bosses in Chapter 2 Oushi Hiraizumi level on Genji Dawn of the Samurai.
I decided to take video of this because it was scary for me.
This boss scared this shit out of me with her shrill laughter floating around with all her arms & blue scary skin!
She kinda looked like Kali that hindu god with all the arms all blue & stuff kowai yo! Scary shit man.
Really scary shit, I am scared of shit like that...
About halfway through this battle you can see me freaking out checking to see if I had any herb or medicine to increase/restore my health meter, but there was none....
Anyways after I took this video I finally beat her & she isn't as hard as what was waiting for me next...a GIGANTIC PHOENIX looking thing named Yatagarasu that breathed fire on my ass, cut me with razor sharp feathers & dive bombed me in my asshole with it's ginormous beak.
Interesting bit of trivia: Yatagarasu is the sun goddess Amaterasu's bird & Yatagarasu is featured in the emblem of the Japanese Football Association or Nihon Sakka Kyokai
Since I am broke as hell I am making due finishing up some of my old games, like this Genji game. Alot of people thought it was a mediocre game but I like it. Anytime you can play as Yoshitsune I am a fan.

From a late-Sunday-night session at the YODC East Coast office, vinyl ripping of 45 RPM enka and kayokyoku goodness for The Vinyl Pagoda Project at Stuck In A Pagoda With Motoko Aoyama.
The initial stack of FIFTY 45RPM singles from which the Vinyl Pagoda Project is getting its start, many of them white-label promos. There is going to be some J-LP's involved, too:

The impromptu shrine erected to commemorate this momentous occasion.
Ah if only my Kaiyodo Eva00 figure didn't get broken I would have been able to include it in the tribute!
On behalf of Shoko Tan I am taking this bitch over!
More covert AX footage from another brave soul NeiCHAMA on the tube.
Yeah it's blurry but this is just how the live performance would have looked through my tears of joy. Here my idol (that I will serve till the bloody end) sings the famous opening theme to Neon Genesis Evangelion "残酷な天使のテーゼ, Zankoku na Tenshi no Tēze" or "The Cruel Angel's Thesis" dressed as Rei Ayanami. I cummed all over my jammies when I watched this.
Because not only am I a fan to my grave of Shoko Tan but I am also a fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion or if you wanna get technical Shin Seiki Evangelion, I spent a small fortune collecting the anime series on VHS which I eventually gave as a gift to a new anime fan I met (which I shouldn't have because she was a poser & so undeserving of the gift!). At the time I just couldn't bear to let a new anime fan go through life without viewing the modern classic.
Then I collected the series on dvd before selling it to raise money to go to Tokyo one year, then I downloaded the platinum edition with all the movies torrent style (hey I already bought the shit twice goddamnit, give me a break!).
Anyways this performance is awesome with the montage of anime images in the background & Shoko dressed as Rei OMG I love you Shoko Tan!!!!!!!!!!!!!
