So before the closing of 5J, we decided we needed to film one last video there. So myself (Red White & Who? aka Jo-Nay), Miss Lesley Arfin (Lil Red Riddin HOOD) and the beautiful Hillary Rosenman (Da Town-E aka Goldie Glocks) did a final rendition of Bel Biv Devoes 90's classic POISON.
it was impromptu, fun, quick and I think pretty legendary. The filming was done by none other than the talented MR. Nippley EB SOLLIS aka my stupid brother.
The Big Homey Matt Lenski did the final edit. Par usual he killed it just like all of our other videos.
So youtube and facebook wouldn't let me upload it due to some copy write infringement, but I could care less. I know I haven't put a post on this blog in a long long time, but it's a new year and I think I will gt back to killing it.

Alright so here's what's up, as we the new moon has arrived it seems that change is happening all around us and although we aren't usually ones to go with the flow, this time we are taking a journey in the lunar river. We are a new band with new members and new visions, therefore we will bid farewell to the great times that embodied Blood Street and welcome ________ (we are strategically waiting to unveil our new name) into this amazingly weird period of history, we hope we will earn your blessings and respect time and time again, and for those of you who have been with us since the beginning, we're talking Black Francis to The Evolutionary beginning, we truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are going to be recording a live series of studio sessions very very soon and we would like to invite people to come into the studio and be part of their creation. We will be filming everything that goes down in the studio from the music to you guys coming in and hanging out and we would also like to invite people to participate by doing interviews and also jamming with us on film so please stay tuned for more details.... I am including this video to demonstrate what kind of vibe we're going for. Eventually when we get a lil' budget we will have a proper shoot with costumes and all sorts a party favors to offer our guests, but this time around it's going to be very grass roots and we would like to ask two questions of our guests. 1. What is your very favorite song?, 2. What does music mean to you? I understand these are very difficult questions to answer so I would ask you to please really think about them and come prepared with something to say.
So after the Dow lost $1 trillion in wealth assets yesterday. I thought 1 trillion was like a made up number kids use. Like I have 1 trillion video games or 1 trillion sodas at my house. I guess not. So now that we basically are on our way to food lines, and cooking shit stew, I came across another issue today that has me worried. The cows are fucked also!! People will have to be rationed to four modest portions of meat and one litre of milk a week if the world is to avoid run-away climate change, a major new report warns. The report, by the Food Climate Research Network, based at the University of Surrey, also says total food consumption should be reduced, especially "low nutritional value" treats such as alcohol, sweets and chocolates(1). Well thats just great,eat chocolate, get drunk just like granny used to do. Could be worse in my eyes, but I tell you this. I'm not becoming some tender ass veagan, that shit is soft like my moms laundry. But if any of you idiots were to think that was a good back-up plan, eating cashew oil and kale, playing hackie sack, growing a vagina, you were even more wrong! The report's findings are in line with an investigation by the October edition of the Ecologist magazine, which found that arguments for people to go vegetarian or vegan to stop climate change and reduce pressure on rising food prices were exaggerated and would damage the developing world in particular, where many people depend on animals for essential food, other products such as leather and wool, and for manure and help in tilling fields to grow other crops. Instead, it recommended cutting meat consumption by at least half and making sure animals were fed as much as possible on grass and food waste which could not be eaten by humans. "The notion that cows and sheep are four-legged weapons of mass destruction has become something of a distraction from the real issues in both climate change and food production," said Pat Thomas, the Ecologist's editor (2). We're fucked. Like big time poop-shit fucked. I think we all should throw on a pair of zubas (http://www.zubaz.com/) and have a banana cognac and relax. At least thats what i'm going to do.

So my brother Fast Eddie, definitely just fucking killed it with the Lucky Luke throw back. But as he knows, when you play the remember when game, this chubby little guy definitely knows how to party. That being said, When EB and I were kids we used to go to Old Lyme Connecticut every weekend to get weird. We threw rocks, played with GI Joe's, and smoked sticks (no homo).
Yes we did love Cowboys and Indians, but there was also a subject, that captivated our young minds, that caused us to not only begin our journey into the study of Tae Kwon Do, but also caused my father to beat us with a belt a few times, after we practiced our new art in the living room. Every saturday there was this little video store that we would go to, while my Waspy relatives were heading to the bottle shop, to re-up and prepare for a heavy night of vino and the blame game. Every saturday, EB and I would rent the same movie. It was called '7 Lucky Ninja Kids" and it was fucking Awesome.
Seven kids with superior martial arts skills stumble into excitement and adventure in this action comedy. One day, one of the kids accidentally stumbles upon the scene of a murder, and shortly before the victim expires, he gives the boy a valuable diamond, with instructions to give it to a woman with a rose. As the kid and his pals try to figure out what to do, they discover a group of gangsters are also on the trail of the jewel, and their talents are put to the test (1).
So basically it's the plot to the most awesomest coolest fucking movie ever made. I probably have seen this movie 75 times. And when they eat the steak sandwiches, i get hungry every time. Here are two clips I found, and the movie poster. Hope you enjoy.
FRANK ALEXANDER WUDDD UP!!!!!
When Jonny Boy and I were kids we were huge fans of playing the game "Cowboys and Indians," as a result our favorite movie for a good portion of our childhood was an animated Disney Film Called "Daisy Town." "Daisy Town," was the story of a Lonely cartoon cowboy named Lucky Luke who drank beer, smoked cigarettes and beat the hell out of people. "Luke, drawing a gun faster than his shadow, fights crime and injustice, most often in the form of the bumbling Dalton brothers, Joe, William, Jack and Averell (each one being taller and dumber than the previous one). He rides Jolly Jumper, "the smartest horse in the world". He is often seen with Rantanplan, "the stupidest dog in the universe", whose name is a reference to Rin Tin Tin. A cigarette was constantly on Lucky Luke's lips in the early stories, but in 1983, in response to the growing anti-smoking campaign, Morris replaced the cigarette with a piece of straw, which earned him recognition from the World Health Organization.
In the albums, Luke meets many factual Western figures like Calamity Jane, Billy the Kid, Judge Roy Bean and Jesse James's gang, and takes part in historical endeavors such as guarding of Wells Fargo stagecoaches, the Pony Express, the building of the first transcontinental telegraph, and the Rush into the Unassigned Lands of Oklahoma.
At the end of each story, except the earliest, Lucky Luke rides off alone into the sunset, singing (in English) "I'm a poor lonesome cowboy, and a long way from home...". " (1). I probably haven't thought about this movie in a little less than two decades, but it dawned on me this afternoon when I was thinking about smoking cigarettes and why at an early age I wanted to smoke, scummy right? I have compiled a few samples of old artwork and a video to share with you idiots. So...... Enjoy.
I'm not even kidding I want our band to cover this song, it's incredible.
