Hold That Pose

Mastering the guitar requires much more than technical prowess; knowing how to pose with your instrument can be just as important. Here we have a group of photos with fellas that have obviously spent some time mastering said pose.

The Onyx Cafe

Posted by Whitmore, October 11, 2008 09:43am | Post a Comment

I remember the worst cup of coffee I ever had. It tasted like mildewed cardboard run through a stale pack of Marlboros. The coffee was barely warm, I think it was heated -- I use the term loosely -- in the sun on the dashboard of a rusty old Buick in a jar of baby formula gone bad. And I also remember the name of the girl who made my double latte that day, it started with a B (I'll only use an initial to protect her identity!) So because it was the Onyx Café, I went behind the counter and re-made my own cup o’ joe. Now I must say in defense of my second home -- aka the Onyx Cafe, most of the time the coffee was pretty good. I just happen to have fonder memories of the dreck I was occasionally served in a place that I loved.

Anyway, it’s been ten years since my ol’ caffeine watering hole has closed. And today, Saturday October 11th, there is a reunion of sorts happening all day long at the Tribal Café located at 1651 W. Temple St. (between Union and Glendale, close to Downtown L.A.) (213) 483-4458 Music, BBQ and all that kind of stuff, and it’s free!

1) Madlib The Beat Konducta WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip (Rapster/BBE)

2) The Streets everything is borrowed (Vice)

3) T.I. Paper Trail (Grand Hustle/Atlantic)

4) Murs Murs For President (Warner)

5) Bishop Lamont The Confessional (mixtape CD)

Thanks to Scott who works in hip-hop at the Hollywood Amoeba Music store for this week's chart, which has the great new album from LA beatmaster/producer Madlib The Beatkonducta on Rapster/BBE as its number one. WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip, also selling well at the other two Amoeba stores, is a hip-hop feast of cool beats with a ton of talented guests joining the gifted producer, including emcees Murs, Defari, Prince Po, Oh No, and Guilty Simpson (whose name is truly accurate this week with the latest OJ news). My personal favorite tracks are "Life" featuring Karriem RIggins (former Common/Kayne sideman), "I Want It Back" featuring Oh No with Madlib as The Professionals, "The Way That I Live" with ATL female vocalist Stacy Epps, and especially all of the Madlib solo/guest-less joints on this album including "The New Resident" and "Disco Dance." Madlib is such a talented producer that I even don't need to hear any emcees or singers on top of his beats.
