EPMD - It's My Thing/You're A Customer 12" (Fresh 1987)

EPMD is by far the illest rap group duo ever!! If anyone says otherwise I'll smack you down lol. Nah but they are my favorite group and I gotta give props to them for holding it down for so many years and still kept it fresh up to their last album. They recently got together for a show in NYC and I couldn't make it but if anyone went let me know how it was. Unfortunately I've never even seen them live, but if they come through Denver or Boulder I'm there.

EPMD definitely had a few shitty tracks on each release but the great ones made up for it. I can remember the day I first heard them, it was on Yo! MTV Raps and they were playing the video for You Gots To Chill, and seriously I went to the record store the next day and bought the tape and listened to it non-stop for like two months straight. That album for me is one of hip hops greatest albums of all time period. I would go into some history and shit but I'm pretty sure everyone knows all about them. Just download these 12's and enjoy.

Super Mario All-Stars + Super Mario World

Image Hosted by

Super Mario All-Stars contains enhanced remakes of Super Mario Brothers (SMB) from 1985, SMB: The Lost Levels (1986), SMB2 (1988), SMB3 (1990) & Super Mario World (SMW)(1991).

The Super Mario Brothers run of games are hands down my alltime favorites of any game runs, especially the first one. Maybe it's because when I was a kid and I first saw SMB in the arcade it totally blew my mind. I had seen the original Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong but there was nothing quite like this game anywhere at that time. I remember dropping $10 in quarters on that game that night because that's all my mom would give me for games, and I became almost obsessed with it. My mom had a bowling league on wednesdays and that was the only time I could play it because the mall's arcade was always packed, so I'd get my weekly fix at the bowling alley. It wasn't until I moved in with my dad that I got good at it about a year later in 86. It's funny because the arcade SMB that I ended up finally beating was also at a bowling alley so for me the first SMB and bowling alley's go hand in hand lol. My best friend had gotten a NES for christmas and being able to play SMB without dropping mad amounts of quarters was fucking awesome to me. And that's when it got to the point that I could beat the game in 20 minutes easily, having memorized almost every level thoroughly. When SMB2 came out I was into it but something about it didn't seem as cool as the first one. Same with SMB3, although they both had some pretty sweet things about em. When Super Mario World came out though I felt they had added some really cool features and it made it much more interesting to me. For some reason I still can't stand the maps in 2, 3 and SMW, they're just so slow to navigate around in. The official sequal to SMW is Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island or just Yoshi's Island for short. I'll get to that game on my next post. That one is definitely my favorite of all the Marios along with the OG one.

For some very interesting info on Super Mario All-Stars check out the Wikipedia page:

ZSNES V. 1.50 Super Nintendo Emulator

Image Hosted by

ZSNES is an emulator that emulates the Super Nintendo game console so that you can play Snes games on your computer, and it's the best one out there too. This version was just released December 21st with tons of bug fixes and other added features. I haven't had enough patience to sit down and figure out everything that this emulator does but from reading the readme.txt that comes with it, it looks like it can do tons of things besides just regular game play. About the only thing I use on a regular basis is save states, so when you get through an annoying or really hard part you can then save it and restart there if you die or decide you wanna retry a part (F2 to save, F4 to restart from that point). If you know how to do port fowarding you can use the Netplay feature which allows you to connect with another computer so you and your friend can play each other at tennis or some shit. I guess at this time only two computers can connect for Netplay. One pretty cool feature is the ability to record what you're playing, both video and audio. Here's someone beating Super Mario Brothers in 17 minutes using the ZSNES.

Playing games on an emulator is 1000 times better if you have a computer capable game controller which you should be able to find at a radio shack or other similar store for about $15-20. Once you install the driver for the game pad you're going to have to configure it for use with the ZSNES. Go into Config/Input/Keyboard Game Pad, then just click on Up - push up on your game pad, click Down, push down, etc. then just close out of that window and you're now ready for games. In the emulator world games are called ROMS and Super Nintendo roms are usually .SMC files. When you download a rom I suggest you create a folder for it and stick it in there because when you load the rom and use save states, other various files get created, so it just helps to keep your files organized. Same with the ZSNES, put it in its own folder (it doesn't install as a program, so just remember where you put the folder). To load a ROM you can either double-click it and find the zsnes through explorer or just start up the emulator and click Game/Load then use the directory to find the rom. I'll be posting occasional SNES games and maybe some others like the regular NES Emulator/games, Game Boy, and Sega Genesis. Not sure though because I'm mostly a fan of Super Nintendo, but drop me a comment if you'd like to see those.

Here's a list of Game Genie cheat codes that work for the ZSNES.

Also here's the ZSNES website for more information if you need it. Don't forget to *try* and read the readme file that comes with the emulator.

That's it, have fun and drop any questions in the comments!

This is the Windows version and it requires DirectX 8.0 or greater to run. Otherwise you will get various missing dll errors.

Maestro Fresh Wes - Symphony In Effect (LMR 1989)

The Maestro's first two albums are straight up classics and among my favorite lp's. Almost every track on these are dope as fuck. For those that don't know, Maestro Fresh Wes is a canadian rapper/producer (one of the best emcees IMO). In 1991 at the Juno Awards in Canada, he was nominated for 5 awards in the rap category including Vocalist of the Year. He won 2 awards including Best Video for the single Drop The Needle and one for Best Rap Recording for his debut Lp Symphony In Effect.

YZ - EP (Tuff City 1991)

Image Hosted by

I recently noticed Wake Your Daughter Up posted these YZ joints and even linked that dope interview and his Myspace page so this is redundant material. Well not really because YZ is worthy of the attention. Down with Tony D since back in the day, their business was known as Two Tone productions. After/during Tony's work with Poor Righteous Teachers, he hooked up with YZ to make some incredible music. A perfect match similar to Mark the 45 King and Lakim Shabazz, the symbiotic relationship of the two goes down in my book as some of the best emcee/producer collabs. YZ drops knowledge and bragadoccio rhymes on that ass while Tony carresses us with syrupy sweet beats and samples. Check out this awesome YZ interview here for more info on the PRT/YZ-Tony D beef. While you're at it check YZ's Myspace page for the latest info.

Clive Barker's Rawhead Rex Comic/Graphic Novel (Eclipse 1993)

Image Hosted by

Now I know alot of you could care less about things like comics (especially in digital format) but I've always been a huge fan of them since I was a kid, in particular Marvel comics. So I'll be occasionally be posting some here and there just for the hell of it. I'm not a ultra comic nerd like alot of the dudes in the DC++ hubs (no diss), so don't go and try an start a comic discussion with me, although I can probably find a particular one if you're looking.

So anyways, I'm starting off my comic book posts with a friggin banger. If you're not familiar with Clive Barker or Rawhead Rex you gotta check this out because it's fucking bad ass! I originally saw the movie when it came out and loved it. I've never read the book and I'm sure the movie sucks as an adaption but this is more up my alley. Here's an excerpt from the cover:

Thomas Garrow just stood and watched. There was nothing in him but awe. Fear was not for those who still had a chance of life. Thomas Garrow had none. He stared into the pitiless face of Rawhead Rex. Rawhead it was called because its head was huge and raw like meat. It was the last of a line of kings dating from before civilization, before Christ, when England was forest all over... and the home of unspeakable horror. The most famous and powerful story came from Clive Barker's Books of Blood is here unforgettably illustrated. The incomparable talent of Les Edwards brings ancient evil to life.

For my first software post I'm sharing one of my most favorite and frequently used applications that I use to make "back-up copies" of movies I buy and own. I have to give thanks to Jimmy Smithson over at Bust The Facts and All Hell Iz Breakin Loose for telling me about this app a few years ago, along with DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink.

I'll give a brief but interesting history on the company and software. 321 Studios first released DVD X Copy in 2003 and the company was taken to court by several major studios and in February was ruled illegal by a judge. Subsequently, 321 Studios closed down and all their DVD copying software was taken off the shelves (although some retailers continued selling the remaing inventory) leaving people to find other programs to back-up movies. Over the next couple years there have been clone programs with the same name popping up, some with other names but the same basic layout. One company claims to have improved upon the original software but I'm pretty skeptical about them all. I tried one called DVD Clone and was not impressed with the resulting quality of the copy. As far as problems with DVD X Copy I only run into one every once in a while: I'll get an error during burning, so that's when I use DVD Decrypter to rip the movie to my hard drive, then use DVD Shrink to burn it. Between the three I've been able to burn every single movie I've ever tried. I'm not sure where I originally got this from but the first time I downloaded it, it came with a serial number to activate it. I lost that first copy a while ago and found this version which has a working crack and I've tested it and have been using it for over a year now, so there shouldn't be a problem installing it. Make sure to read the read me file included before installation. If you're looking for copying software and haven't tried this I suggest giving it a try at least. If you do run to any problems drop a comment and I'll try an help.

This is for Windows only. It requires about 10 Gigs of free space to temporarily store the ripped files on your hard drive (the program deletes them after burning). Here's the links to DVD Decrypter here and DVD Shrink here, both are free programs.

Spectrum City - Lies/Check Out The Radio 12" Single (White Label Promo) (Vanguard 1984)

Image Hosted by

When I first heard this single I just about creamed myself because early Public Enemy was my shit and still is to this day. Before PE was formed, Chuck D was involved with WBAU, Adelphi University's radio station as a Deejay and later as the lead MC of Hank and Keith Shocklee's Spectrum City unit. A more old school sounding Public Enemy, this single to me is one of the greatest singles of all time. I'd love to get my hands on the actual 12 of this but the digital format fills that void for now. Enjoy!

Resident Alien - It Takes A Nation Of Suckers To Let Us In (1992)

I'm sure everyone has this lost gem by now thanks to the net. I'm not gonna say much about this but grab it if you don't already have it. Prince Paul's first project after Stet and De La, the album follows the daily happenings of three West Indian immigrants in New York. Definitely hilarious as you'd expect from Paul with decent samples and beats and some rhymes by emcees whose names I still haven't figured out (Mr. Bug, Dragon & Double B?). I remember seeing this album being promoted in The Source I believe, (or some other magazine maybe) back in the day. Leave it to Russell to fuck this one up. I'd love to see a proper release of this sometime as I know Paul could use the cash.

Super Lover Cee & Casanova Rud - Girls I Got 'Em Locked (Elektra 1988)

Image Hosted by

What can I say about this album that hasn't already been said? One of my favorite lp's from my favorite year in hip hop (well I debate that with myself constantly), this album is on rotation weekly, I never get tired of it. I believe Paul C had his hands all over this release and it shows: dope samples, dope beats and Super Lover Cee's rhymes compliment them well. The liner notes list both Super Lover and Rud as the main producers and Paul as the engineer but I wonder how much Paul had to do with the production? I bet quite a bit. Also I wish they could've followed this album up sooner with another LP than they did with their extremely weak EP, Blow Up The Spot. If you've never heard this or don't have it, grab this shit now!

The Alliance - We Could Get Used To This (First Priority 1988)

Image Hosted by
One of my favorite albums of '88 (actually of any era), The King Of Chill, K-Swift, and DJ Skill come correct on this First Priority release with ill rhymes, top-notch production and excellent scratchin. How they didn't get hardly any airplay is unfathomable to me. I just won a mint copy of this on eBay for $5!!! I added a few extra tracks from their 12 inch releases that didn't make the lp cut.
