EDIT: From the DJ Premier blog:

Just got the word from DJ Premier that I can take down the donations address and his bills are getting handled. More details remain unknown. Hopefully we can hear an official text by Kool Herc himself as soon as possible. I guess he had a lot of donations from all around us… Word.


Just spotted on Rapradar:

During Preemo‘s broadcast of Live from HQ this week, he informed listeners that the father of hip-hop, DJ Kool Herc, is currently hospitalized. He says the pioneer doesn’t have health insurance to cover the medical cost and is seeking for the public’s assistance.

Donation addresses are as follows:

P.O. BOX 20472

or you can wire you donation internationally via paypal to this address:

cindycampbell1@aol.com (his sister)

Which is what I am doing RIGHT NOW, because I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL to this man for what he gave me.

See that? That’s me drawing my Akira The Don’s Guide To: Death’s Head comic strip.

That’s what that is.

That is also 5 hours, 24 minutes and 30 seconds condensed into just under 5 minutes.


The music is: The Gay Blades – O Shot (Akira The Don & Joey2tits Carjacker Mix, ft Littles) and Akira The Don ft Pixel, Trencha Narstie & Littles – Got Money (Krucy Darkstar Remix). Both songs are taken from ATD20.

That also means we have A WINNER!

Indeed, as my brain was all melty from drawing all day, I asked you to think of a song to soundtrack the timelapse video. And lo Raydome did say:

I think you should use Got Money (Krucy Darkstar Remix) for the video, quality tune, it’ll work well with the speeded up drawings.

And he was right. It works really well.


Now, Karl pointed out in the comments that it was unfair for people to have multiple entries. ”I could just copy and paste my whole ATD playlist, and then if any one of those is picked I would win,” he said brimming with sambuca fuelled pathos. And he was right. So next time we have a competition, we shall have some cot-damn RULES! yes, it has come to that. This Wild West is getting The Rule of Law thrust upon it. BE AFRAID!

OK. I got a bunch of emails asking if I could make the Death’s Head strip into a T Shirt. So, I have.

And, notoriously faithful public servant that I am, I have been asked to display the whole of that Death’s Head one page comic strip I drew back in 2001 2003 that I mentioned, and I am going to do just that. HAVE AT YE:

AHAHAHA! They got shotted! BANG BANG BANG!

Ah, memories. I also did a one page comic strip starring Frankie from The Darkness that week. I might have to dig that out one day.

So, yeah, I hope you enjoyed that. Congratulations to all the competition entrants. As I type it is 23:19, and we are aboutto go into ANOTHER WEEK. It is going to be a big week, I think. I have plans. But never mind me… What awesome stuff are YOU gonna do this week?

So, I got some (ha!) sleep, and I listened to the noises Birddogg was making up here while I was down in New York, doing whatever it was I was doing in New York. Like, there’s some ill stuff. But one in particular is just tremendous. it is mighty. It fills my heart. And prefectly fits so many of the raps I was writing in New York, tempom flow, everything. So, what I’ve done, is draw various raps, and bits of raps, together, to create this New York song that’s been brewing all the time I’ve been here. It is best I get it out now, before I FORGET.

Annoyingly, the necassary component is missing. So piss.

Bad: All the stuff I bought last week – food, drink, socks, weed – is gone. Mostly. I got a lot of Ritz crackers, peanut butter and macaroni.
Good: There’s a Death’s Head Moth on my window. (See right)
Bad: There is animal shit by my window.
Good: The air outside is fresh and envigorating.
Bad: The air in the top level of the house, in which I am supposed to be dwelling, is thick with the stink of animal and of animal excrement.

I went to turn on the sauna earlier, and nearly trod in cat shit. Or dog shit. It could be both. Whatever. It’s like, wow, sauna! Oh, catshit. Wow! Oh. Wow! Oh.
Etc. So, I wanted to go into town and get a job today, to pay for my ticket back to New York, but waited about for people to come with me rather than just doing it, and the end result is it’s super late now, too late to get a job anywhere, and everyone’s going into town to go out, save me, who must stay at home cos he has no ID (this is a worry), and it’s too far to chance not being allowed in anywhere.

A ha!

So I should write more now. I wrote a bunch earlier. Phil is worrying that Amy has forotten his ass, as she went in her tiny car to take Cecelia and James over an hour ago. But she hasn’t forgotten him. It’s just miles from ShanGayKen to Woodstoock! A HA!

I just asked Spiky if he has a message for the world. He said, “spitroast!” So there you go.
