Final notes on the Day of the Dead

grim-fandango

Man, if only the Dudley Boyz hadn’t buried Paul Bearer up to his neck in concrete, we could have had the perfect pitchman for June 25th, 2009… As it was, it’d be amiss of me not to say a few more things on those who’ve crapped out in the past 24 hours.

Commenting on Jackson is unnecessary and irrelevant, people with more talent, more knowledge, and more enthusiasm for the subject in hand will be doing this over the next five-to-ten years, and rest assured Jacko will now be replacing Hitler as the topic of choice for Channel 5 documentaries. All I’ll say is a) for boys of my age, attending a primary school fancy dress party as Michael Jackson was pretty much a rite of passage and b) here’s an MP3 section of Dan Greenpeace and DJ Yoda’s 2003 “Essential Mix”, specifically the 23 minute segment that dealt with hip-hop tracks that sample Michael Jackson. Enjoy it, and the tracklisting, after the jump:

DJ Yoda and Dan Greenpeace – Essential Mix 2003, Michael Jackson segment

1. Michael Jackson – Billie Jean
2. Big Daddy Kane – Raw
3. Michael Jackson vs. DJ Kool – Let Me Clear My Billie Jean
4. Scram Jones – Jackson Jacker
5. Michael Jackson vs. Q-Tip – Breathe Don’t Stop
6. Michael Jackson – Rock With You
7. Ultramagnetic MC’s – Poppa Large
8. Ugly Duckling – Indonesia
9. SWV – Right Here (Human Nature Mix)
10. Mister Cee – Where Brooklyn At
11. Nas – It Ain’t Hard To Tell
12. Arno Vanucci – I Want You Off The Books
13. OutKast – Atliens
14. Michael Jackson & Vince Price – Thriller

Secondly, Grimey Simey’s paid low-wordcount tribute to Steven W in his own way here. Note the specific writing example he choses to illustrate the dead man’s greatness though. Shots fired? Do we need to turn Joy Press into the Faith Evans of the situation? One to keep an eye on, at least. Probably also worth noting that the two troll comments left at the bottom of that Quietus piece are by non other than long-time ILB favourite Claude Carpentieri under a really well hidden pseudonym. May be additionally worthy of considering that we’re now six months into his threat to sue ILB for mocking his tattoos and calling him a racist. Presumably he shares a lawyer with Sam Allardyce and Morrissey.
