WaaKao ladies and gentleman. It’s been a little long, but busy-ness behinds the scenes is a real good thing. Sometime it’s takes a while to get the campfire going but once it does, the whole forest goes up in flames. Waakao for real.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of having a few moments of free time. Chill time. Relax time. It was nice, especially after two rowdy nights (big up b.monk, bloofrog poker tourney in hsin chu, and the rock and roll circus), playing football and almost being unable to move. I got to catch up on some Internet-related activities and came across an old friend, John Forte. You might remember him from some Fugee-related material from way back. Well, I was a Fugee-head and I loved whatever they did for a while there. Forte released an album that I dug, Poly Sci, and it had a pretty dope 99 loft Balloons sampling single, Flash the Message.

In 2000, John Forte was arrested with 31 pounds of liquid cocaine at an airport. That’s gangster. He got sent away for 14 years and then, for what may be the only good thing of his presidency, George W. Bush pardoned him on his last day in office. F U Scooter Libby. Anyway, the man is out and running. He’s got a blog up at Daily Beast (Huff Post is better Tina Brown), and he’s telling people what happened in his life. It’s a great read and you feel that he decided to pay his debt to society and then jump back into life head first. Go, John, Go!

And just a remindeer of how dope the Native tounges thing was at one point, Rumble in the Jungle from When We Were Kings.

And if you are in Australia, consider yourself very lucky. De La is touring on their 20th anniversary of their group with a 13-piece band. Does it get better than that?
