Dollar Bills and Pish Posh Thrills

15 05 2007

Hey there homies…whoa, has shit been crazy lately, but not to worry, I got a bangin delivery for ya….. This friday, get off your ass and head over to the TL…this shit is gonna be fresh. History Invades is celebrating thier record release on Pish Posh (one of my favorite record labels), and alongside them will be All Teeth and Knuckles, Ghosts on Tape, UFO! and yours truly, PoziB! And it’s free! Pish Posh is notorious for throwing some of the best parties in the city, whether its a house party or club event…So unless you like your life under a rock, get out and see the freshness for yourself…

Heres a few tracks from Ghosts on Tape to hype you up…

Mp3:Nann Juke Rmxx – Ghosts On Tape

Mp3: Gangsterplayer222 – Ghosts On Tape

Mp3: Rang On Tha Grayne – Ghosts On Tape

So I recently got transfered down to the Haight Street side of the Shoe Biz world, which on most points kinda sucks…and here’s why:

1. Its uphill from where I live. I don’t like riding the bus, I like to ride my bike, but I don’t like to ride my bike uphill…booooo.

2. They have me working in the store with all women’s shoes. I like sneakers…i do wear the girly shoe occassionally, but selling them sucks. Girls come up to me with 7 different pairs of black flats, want to try them in two different sizes, then decide that none of them fit quite right and if i’m lucky, they walk out with a $20 sale shoe..lame.

3. It is way too close to all my favorite shops, so all the money that I made that day, I end up spending before I even get home…

Yeah, so #3 sucks cuz I spend all my dough, but I stay fly in my new threads and get to mob the record store every time I’m on a lunch break… Today I picked up some records from Ratatat…I really want thier new remix album, but alas it’s not available yet, so I got some older stuff of thiers..I quite like it, I must say. Got that indie rock feel laced with hip hop beats to keep you head knodding in your white belt… Thier new remix stuff is fresh though, I’ve been jammin it on the pod for days. Check it for yourself right here….Then, you can say thank you by sending me dollor bills in my time of need while I work on the consumer ridden Haight Street..word.

Mp3: Party and Bullshit (Ratatat Remix) – Notorious B.I.G.

Mp3: The Mule (Ratatat Remix) – Z-ro, Devin the Dude, and Juvenile

Mp3: Stomp (Ratatat Remix) – Young Buck, Game and Ludacris

there ya go! Enjoy…see ya friday and I better see those bills flyin…





Oahu

28 02 2007

I am in my hotel room in beautiful Waikiki.  I have to admit, I was a little aprehensive about Hawaii because I thought it would be too touristy.  It is! However, it is amazing.  My girlfriend Natasha, and I are still exploring but are enjoying all of the fine cuisine.  I have yet to have a Mai Tai.  Although I am comfortable in my manhood, it still seems like the tropical equivalent of an Appletini.  It is super expensive here.  I am rolling with Miller High Lifes (Lives?) right now due to the price.  Since our hotel costs too much in my opinion, I am enjoying one service they offer: FREE CALLS ANYWHERE in the United States.  So, I am serious, email me your phone number ( jsagouspe@gmail.com) and I will call you.  I need to get my money’s worth.  Aquarium tommorow. I am hyped. The aquarium is my favorite place in the world.  It is also important to mention that there are many Japanese tourists here.  I had no idea.  They all have the Japanese mullet too. I bet you guys would know it if you saw it.  Furthermore, In one of the Tony Hawk games, I totally skated off the top of this hotel over a helicopter.  Surreal.  If you ever come here, it is great, but stay to the tourist parts. It is depressing otherwise.  I hope to get to the other side of the island at some point though and maybe accidentally see some of the actors from Lost.  By the way, if you missed it, the science company that Juliet works for is called “Mittelos”.  This is an anagram for “Lost Time”, which is confirmed to not be a coincidence. 

Blahblahblah.  Too much rambling.  Here is what you all want:

MP3: “Fancy Footwork” – Chromeo

I bet you guys have heard the Thomas Barford remix.  Stick with the original. I have DJed that remix, and it is ok, but Chromeo is one of those bands that has such an awesome sound that no remix could ever do them enough justice.

MP3: “Find What You Get (Nik 7 Remix)” – Bang Gang

I totally stole this from the hollerboard! This is the Icelandic band “Bang Gang”, not the equally amazing Australian Djs.  I know very little about Nik 7, but this remix is worth a handshake.

MP3: “The Creeps (Fedde Le Grand Remix)” – Camille Jones

Is this remix enough to forgive Fedde Le Grand for “Put Your Hands Up for Detroit”?  You be the judge. That video gave me total price.  “Price” is the feeling when you feel embarassed for someone else and also feel embarassed for watching the, do that embarassing thing.  It was created by my friend Michelle after something she witnessed at Price Club.  Please use the word.  Make it catch on.
