|If I haven't...
...made harrassing phone calls to you to brag, I recently won 1st place in the Midwest DJ Summit 3.0 sponsored by Sam Ash.
In addition, the 2nd place winner, Whoa-B, was also from Brüt Force, which would definitely fall into the "excellent" category.Brüt Force - we're still better than you.

|Not to be funny, but...
...it must be the season for school shootings or something.
I just read about one that happened at an Amish school in Pennsylvania. What is it, like the 3rd one within the last few weeks?
And then some kid with a gun gets spotted at some high school in Vegasl?
What's wrong with this country? Current Mood: confused

|Does anyone have a copy of the DVD...
"Radio" (yes, that movie with Cuba)?
I just realized that even though I already own Scarface, Carlito's Way, and a few other gangster/mob movies, according to Lil' Jon on MTV Cribs last night, I need "Radio" for it to be complete.
So, if you have "Radio" and are willing to let it go for like, $1, let me know.
Thanks. Current Mood: silly

|My e-mail to the Combos people and their response.
My name is Chris and I love your snacks. I have to say, in a given week, I probably consume Combos pretty much every day I'm at work. Usually, I'll have Combos as breakfast, since the standard bagel and cream cheese has gotten a bit tired and breakfast sandwich is just a little too greasy to digest, unless you've been out drinking all night.
Anyway, that gave me a great suggestion to send you guys -- why don't you make breakfast food-flavored Combos? You could have something like a bacon, egg, and cheese Combo or a Combo with pancake syrup-flavored filling. In any event, I'm sure you guys would be able to figure out something good if you decided to make breakfast Combos. I really hope you consider this -- I really think a lot of people would be inclined to try it, since there are so many "on-the-go" options for breakfast nowadays and most of them suck...terribly. So, if you do end up making breakfast Combos and you need someone to test them, don't hesitate to drop me a line.
--ChrisTheir (boring) response:

(2 Charming Crew - Baltimore, MD)
** First Chicago Appearance **
Since the days when UK Garage meant 2-Step, Light Touch has been holding it down on the East Coast as one of the top Underground Garage DJs in the States as well as one of the heads of the Baltimore Garage Crew, the 2 Charming Crew. He's rinsed out some incredible sets across the country, so it is our pleasure to welcome him to the Windy City. His unique blend of Grime and Baltimore Club will be surely turn heads!B. RAW
Sushi B2B Whoa-B
(Brüt Force - Chicago, IL)
** First Live Tagteam Performance **
Sushi and Whoa-B have both been championing the sound of UK Garage since its emergence in North America in the late 90's and are recognized as two of the (if not THE TWO) first DJs to expose the Grime genre to Chicago. Their styles have evolved together over the years resulting in the fusion known as "G-Hop" --a blend of Grime (as well as other subgenres of Underground Garage) and Hip-Hop (as well as other Stateside urban music genres).::Opening Old Skool UK Garage Flavours::
(Brüt Force - Chicago, IL)
A UK Garage triple threat --DJ, Producer, MC-- Tristan James has returned to turn back the clock and educate the people on what came before Grime.KID IKARUS
(Brüt Force - Chicago, IL)
An old skool drum & bass veteran now working on the old skool sounds of UK Garage, Kid Ikarus is always ready to throw down the best in 4x4 grooves.
