What ATL MC has a project featuring Y-Society, Akrobatik, The Smile-Rays, Asamov, Willie Evans Jr., Collective Efforts, H20 (from Y’all so Stupid), Supa Dave West, Cool Calm Pete and MORE? Only Dillon Maurer, of course.

Just got my hands on a copy. I’ma review it later. Until then, let your mouth water.


I love it: Wonder root, ATL.

Posted in Wonder Root ATL by Dom Brady on May 20, 2008

I’m not certain how many facilities there are like this in the city. My wife and I have discussed opening up a place like this ourselves. We’ve discussed names, looked at locations, etc. We just don’t have the bread to do this WHERE we want to (In the Westside of Atlanta). Real estate is just too expensive right now. I LOVE this idea, though. I think it’s CRITICAL that we create a space for creative arts and teaching young people how to tap into their creative energy as well. A place that can be at once a studio, performance space and educational tool for a Web 2.0/ Digital media world. Art awareness is critical in a media age where creative culture and creative economies will replace the chocking-on-rust industrial model of the 20th century.

I can’t wait to visit them. I have family in-town this weekend for the express purpose of exposing them to the ATL art scene. I think we’ll visit Wonder Root as soon as they have rested from their long trip.

Btw, The Analogue Atlanta Pilot Episode #3 featuring ATL designers TUNDE, Dosa Kim, and Epidemik Coalition has been delayed. I took a nasty fall and dislocated my thumb. It isn’t THAT bad. I went to the Doctor and he said I should be fine. I just can’t take meds because I am already on a medication that won’t allow me to take any pain meds. This means that with my right hand effed up, I can’t do the editing and mixing like I normally do. My hand hurts a bit too much. I should take a picture of it. It’s the size of a damned football and it’s like 3 colors. lol.

I had to type this message with my Left hand only. I’ll talk to you guys soon. Don’t expect too many updates for a few days.

I HAVE COMPANY!!!! *Waves at my cousins* Can’t wait ’til you guys get here!!! Can you tell I’m excited? With so much going on this weekend we are SURE to have a ball.

I’d post fliers, etc. But my blog is TRIPPING. Be sure to catch Proton/?uestlove at MJQ, the Caribbean Festival, Jazz Fest, Decatur Arts Fest and Malcolm X festivities!

Another reason to check out Beleza

Rogue Chocolate Beer
I went down there Thursday to listen to my boy Mr. Mind of the Audubon Society spin some Bossa Nova. While I was there I decided to have a brew and a salad. I actually had a few brews (astagfrillah0)and a salad. The Arugula salad was terrific. The zest of the vinegrette played perfectly with the lush greens, pistachios, tofu cubes and sweet passion fruit. A lovely medley danced in my mouth but I’d by lying if I didn’t admit the star of the show was the Rogue Chocolate Stout. Outstanding. It was full bodied, sturdy with a hint of a chocolate aftertaste. I was impressed. I WILL be having some again.

Spent some time with progressive ATL Graphic Artists Wednesday.

This is for an upcoming Analogue Atlanta audio podcast episode to be featured on VIMBY.com. The guys allowed me to eavesdrop on their new projects and collaboration efforts for a day. A few things jumped out at me:

1. They love Atlanta.
2. These guys are talented, gifted.
3. These guys are sharp

But don’t take my word for it. Check out Epidemik Coalition and Dosa Kim’s blogs. I’m sure you’ll be just as blown away as I was. I mean, I’ve seen these guy’s work before but it’s all been online. To see it up close and personal is just another matter completely. The guys gave me a few shirts too which I’m go ahead and rock all weekend because they are now the freshest-flyest clothes in my closet. lol.

Analogue Atlanta Podcast Pilot #2: "Almost Famous"

Posted in Analogue Atlanta Pilot, DJ Wreckineyez, Spree Wilson by Dom Brady on May 12, 2008

As you probrably already know, I’ll be debuting a 15 minute podcast in June on VIMBY.com by the name of Analogue Atlanta. Until then I’m doing what amounts to a pilot divided into 5 parts which will constitute the meat of the KIND of subject matter Analogue Atlanta will be covering concerning Atlanta arts: Cuisine, Music, Visual arts and Style.

The second part of this pilot is titled “Almost Famous”. In it Analogue Atlanta talks to ATL’s DJ Wreckineyez & ATL MC Spree Wilson.

Each Pilot segment will have a different style of format. I’m still playing with ideas and concepts of how best to present this show. So if this episode seems like a dynamic departure from the first episode, don’t despair. This is by design.

Since I ran into that snag, I just did a rough pilot

I did a rough pilot of what Analogue Atlanta WILL be in the future. This is really, really rough. I did this all starting around 2 am this morning. lol. So, yeah…it will be MUCH better, God willing. I bought my laptop and my new toy for recording in the field the day of the event. Didn’t prepare any questions or anything.

So again, this is rough. PLEASE leave some feedback, though. I need to know what you want to hear about. I’m working on two stories right now, and I have no idea if y’all will be interested. It isn’t all about music or hip hop by the way. This is about art in Atlanta.

This is what happens when I don’t have my camera with me.

Posted in Yelawolf acting stupid. by Dom Brady on May 4, 2008

Walking the dog in Atlanta might seem like a pedestrian activity but just when I make the mistake of thinking it’s just another idle Sunday in Atlanta, I run into things like this: ATL based andR edd Klay / Ghet-O-Vision recording artist Yelawolf in a bear-suit skating @ The Busy Bee on the Westside of Atlanta. Shortly after chopping it up with Fani, a skater from Chicago getting it in by the Grocery Store about music and Skating, I bore witness to some of the most beautiful motorcycles and women-folk (who happened to be skating as well- but in Washington Park) I’d seen in a dog’s age when I realized I left my camera at home. I couldn’t pass this pic up, though. The camera on my phone would have to suffice today.
