You Oughta Know By Now…

…that Wesleying must invariably comment on a Das Racist release; to fail to follow the suit of the NYT, the Wall Street Journal, and P4k, among others, would be sheer negligence on our part. They’ve even gotten another one of those sweet feats from GQ (have you ever really looked at soup dumplings…I mean really looked?!). The fact of the matter is that unless you live under a rock—and that rock happens to be located somewhere far, far away from Middletown or any area with a significant population of “indie” folkz—you’re probably well aware of Relax, the latest project of rap wonder duo Heems (Himanshu Suri ’07) and Kool AD (Victor Vazquez ’06) and hypeman Dapwell (Ashok Kondabolu). If you’re not, check this vid immediately.

Movember

This just in in time for No Shave November: Montreal-based non-profit Yellow Bird Project is putting out the call for a blogger to participate in Movember (a somewhat awkward portmanteau of moustache + November).

From what I gather, said blogger would raise awareness about and funds for men’s health issues and in exchange scores some sweet YBP swag and makes weekly posts “chronicling [hir] plight for moustache stardom”.

YBP basically gets indie rock musicians to design t-shirts that benefit charities of their choice, so the merch/blogging exposure might be pretty neat. Heck, I’d give it a shot if I could. Get the details here.
