    Tickets go on sale this Friday. From the Florida Theatre's site:

    David Sedaris, author of the bestsellers Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim and National Public Radio contributor will be appearing for one night only at the Florida Theatre! Following the much anticipated release of his brand new collection entitled When You Are Engulfed in Flames; David will visit Jacksonville for an evening of engaging recollections and readings.

    And a slightly older but informative post from Ian:

    Waddu​p yall,​

    Its been a good start​ of the year for HIP HOP HELL.​ We signe​d up for anoth​er year at our recor​d store​/​offic​e in Sprin​gfiel​d.​ Willi​e Evans​ Jr. and Tough​ Junki​e opene​d up for Wutan​g Clan at Plush​ the other​ week,​ and absol​utely​ slaye​d it. The N Word broug​ht a packe​d house​ full of Arlin​gton/​Jax Beach​ Hip Hop Heads​ out to the urban​ core for a great​ party​ at Shant​ytown​ Pub last weeke​d.​ Willi​e Evans​ is going​ on tour with Mr. Lif this sprin​g,​ Tough​ Junki​e is putti​ng toget​her a CD with Coalm​ine Recor​ds out of Ohio,​ and The N Word "​Great​est Hits"​ is comin​g in March​ showc​asing​ the best track​s of their​ exten​sive stell​er catal​og.​ Thing​s is looki​ng good getti​ng bette​r now.​.​.​.​

    But befor​e all that.​.​.​.​.​ drumr​oll pleas​e.​.​.​.​ the reaso​n for this commu​nicat​ion is to let yall know about​ the big frees​tyle battl​e comin​g next month​ @ T.​S.​I.​

    HIP HOP HELLS​ Frees​tyle Massa​cre is usual​ly our best hyped​ and busie​st produ​ction​ of the year.​ In the past it has been held @ Thee Imper​ial (​R.​I.​P)​ and Fuel in 5 point​s.​ This winte​r we are bring​ing it back downt​own for its first​ run at T.​S.​I.​ on Bay St.

    What the massa​cre is- a 16man​,​ head to head frees​tyle rap battl​e.​ Just like the ones on TV, or 8 mile,​ but way reale​r and crunk​er.​ MCs impro​vise and make lyric​s off the top of their​ heads​ to eithe​r make fun of the other​ dude or go strai​t for his throa​t.​ It gets bruta​l.​ We are 6 years​ deep in this battl​e,​ some heads​ go every​ year.​ Some of these​ dudes​ know each other​.​Somet​imes it is their​ first​ time meeti​ng.​ Eithe​r way, they go at it in 2 round​s and leave​ it to the 3 estee​med judge​s to sort out. Great​ enter​tainm​ent.​.​.​.​ the pro wrest​leing​ of Hip Hop!​!​!​ Hoste​d by 2 drunk​en assho​les (​mysel​f and my man Cynic​al Mind)​ with clear​ heade​d refer​ee Tough​ Junki​e makin​g sure every​thing​ stays​ fair and balan​ced.​ It gets wild and there​ is contr​avers​y every​ year,​ but one thing​ is for sure-​ we have a good ass time with it!​!​!​

    We have a 2 time champ​ (​Just Will)​ and a 3-​peat (​Strif​e)​ in our histo​ry so far. Neith​er dude has commi​ted as of now for this year,​ but both are consi​derin​g.​ Its gonna​ get real inter​estin​g.​.​.​.​.​

    7. Sinsa​y-​ a small​ white​ dude from Mandr​in with glass​es that strai​t embar​esses​ dudes​ every​ year.​ Sin is fast-​ real fast.​ Went to the semi final​s last year.​
    8. The Scape​goat-​ reppi​ng Gaine​svill​e,​ Scum of the Earth​ crew.​ This dude does rap shows​ in Regan​ Youth​ and Minor​ Threa​t T shirt​s.​ I have never​ heard​ his frees​tyle,​ but if they are as agres​sive as his writt​en work-​ cats bette​r look out twice​.​

    JAXSCENE INTERVIEW: Miss Baun

    0 comments

    Baun is a professional model featured in local photo publications and numerous websites. She's always ready to take life to the next level of experiences and a has certain drive for business.

    How did your holiday celebrations go?
    Baun: Great. Had a very small get together with some friends from out of town. HOWEVER was very sad my best best best friend, Amy, couldn't be there. I had a nice bonfire and drinks. Along with drunken, naked rock band playing. I had a blast.

    Did get at least one thing you wanted?
    Baun: I did. I got enough donations combined with the money I got for Christmas to replace the bike that was stolen from me. My bike and I... we are like this ::Twists middle and forefinger together:::

    In a battle royal between Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and a leprechaun, who would win?
    Baun: The Leprechaun of COURSE... he has magical powers... AND lucky charms :D

    How do you place the toilet paper?
    Baun: Place the toilet paper? You mean wipe front to back? or... do I crumble or roll? It depends on the situation at hand. More then likely I crumble it together, less likely to leak through.

    Think of the next big device for computers.
    Baun: China already has it... its a phone/ credit card/ drivers license/ camera/ computer all in one handy, credit card sized device. SCARY! Is it the coming of the anti-christ!?

    Is there a liquor you can not drink?
    Baun: Not a big fan of whiskey. I can drink it but not a fan of it. Ooooh.. Moonshine is some FIERCE sh*t :D

    What is something you'd expect to see in your ideal music video.
    Baun: I'm a BIG fan of porn...

    What hopes do you have for 2009?
    Baun: To sell everything I own and move somewhere that is nice and cheap with my animals. I'm ready to be out of where I am and moving on to the next grand adventure, turning the page.

    You just invented a new color, what is it called and what does it look like?
    Baun: Blurple... and its a nice bluey shade of purple with red sparkles... cause who DOESN'T like sparkles!!??

    JaxScene, the blog this interview will be posted at, features many things about the local scene while attempting to build bridges in the community. What more can you tell us about yourself?
    Baun: I'm a professional model and Domina. I am GREAT at social gatherings and have a ton of sales experience. Baundage. com is my site and I'm always open for scheduling new things. I appear on Bubba The Love Sponge about once a month and can pimp out your business, site, etc with the snap of a finger.

    Interview by David. All interviews are random questions in the areas of bizarre, funny, serious, or abstract. Interviewees are randomly selected, usually out around town. If you want to be interviewed hit me up when you see me.

    Mayport & the cruise ship issue featured on NPR

    1 comments
    "Jacksonville Ignites Port Conflict
    Day to Day, January 23, 2009 · Jacksonville wants in on the booming cruise ship business. The city has plans to build a new port near the historic Mayport settlement. Mayport is the location of one of the nation's oldest settlements, founded by French Huguenots. Area residents and fishermen have mounted opposition to the port, and Jacksonville's city council is scheduled to make its decision about it soon."

    The audio is scheduled to be up for this story here at 3pm.

    When do you think the "things to do" should be posted
    That day, I like the way it is now.
    A day in advance.
    Two days in advance.







    What do you think of a "save the date" post?
    It is dumb, I do not want to see it.
    Sort of like the idea.
    You have to, my life would be so much better.

    Attention Local Bands

    0 comments
    According to UJ, 2009 will be a year of resurgence in local band activity. I surely hope so.

    That being said, if you have a local band and are in need of a place to exhibit your musical talent, 331 is looking for bands to book on Friday nights.

    Susan posted a discussion on the JaxScene Network so if you are up to the task, head over and let her know. There is a nice little surprise waiting for you there if you check it out. It involves Zombies (my favorite)!

    Obama Inauguration Party At The Pearl

    1 comments
    I got a phone call yesterday, I know it is from from my employer The Pearl.(just as a DJ) It basically went like this:

    Tom, hey I talked to Justin today and we are excited about the inauguration tomorrow. We want to have a party, we know the economy is not doing so well and we want to get in the spirit and celebrate the change. We are thinking of decorating, maybe showing some video and having all drinks $1 all night and having you DJ. What do you think?

    So I made a flyer and I decided to add what I had to offer. I was working on a poster for the show at Ocean Club this weekend that I'll be giving away. I decided to not do it, but now I am. I also have a few Obama stickers I bought a while back that I want to give out. I also want to display one of the famous signed Shepard Fairey Obama Hope Poster that had such a big impact on the election for people to see in person. I also bought three limited edition Obama Hope action figures and I want to give one to someone lucky. If you're excited about Obama being in office like I am stop by. The first 50 people get to decide if they want a poster or a sticker, first come first decide. There is also Obama theme parties at The Ivy and Eclipse.



    In other Obama news I didn't want to show these earlier but since he's basically President now this is stuff I worked on for the campaign.

    Maybe Zines Are Back

    2 comments
    This past Art Walk I was presented two zines one was free the other cost me a dollar. Which is fine cause I have put out a fair share of zines in the past and I know they cost money. I feel it's worth it to be able expressing your opinions plus it feels good to make something.

    These are the two I got this one has no name: It's a collection of artistic images with written words.

    Click for sample page

    This one I believe is called "Quest" and is a collection of collages.

    Gaza Protest in 5 Points 1/10/09

    2 comments
    Shame on me for waiting this long to post these pics, but here's the lot.


    IMG_1949
    Click on image for full set.


    While I most certainly will not weigh in on my stance on this issue, I will comment on the protest itself. All in all, it was a well-organized, diverse, and peaceful protest. That being said, I got the impression that some of the children there were beinf exploited for the purposes of the protest. You can tell when someone has no idea why they are doing something other than it's what everyone else is doing or because you were told to do so and that's the vibe I got off most of the younger kids. Some of the older kids almost looked like they were having too much fun as opposed to really taking a stand, but kids will be kids I guess.


    IMG_1947


    There was a little excitement when one leathered-out redneck on his bicycle started causing trouble. He was asked politely to leave by what appeared to be a 5P merchant or some other spectator not affiliated with the protest. He left but came back soon later and the cops got involved. He wasn't too happy about the whole deal. Look, here he is calling me a faggot when I took his picture!


    IMG_1964


    In the end he got what was coming to him and while he had just as much a right to express his opinion as the protesters did, he did appear to be a threat to the peaceful nature of the assembly.

    South Bank At Sunrise 1/11/09

    1 comments
    For all the towners that don't want to drive all the way to the beach see the sunrise you can now drive half the way to the South Bank and join fellow Jacksonvillians for jazz, all the current newspapers, a cup of coffee, and a historian. I believe the point of this is to get your early day started out right by watching the sunrise. It's put on by Heartland Hospice so I believe it's for health. I went to the first one this week I must say it is strange being up that early. The sunrise was nice even though you have to go either on the main street bridge or a little further down the boardwalk to see it, probably the fifth one I seen my whole life. It does makes for a long productive day, if you don't go home and go back to bed. I stayed up and by noon it felt like 5pm. My recommendations would be bring a camera and take pictures, ride a bike there, go for a jog afterwards, or read a book and enjoy the river. It happens every Sunday.

    The Full Moon Owl Prowl at The Jacksonville Arboretum 1/10/09

    0 comments
    Saturday night The Jacksonville Arboretum had a Full Moon Owl Prowl. It was basically a mile walk through the the trails of the Arboretum at night. The event was a RSPV event that reached capacity early in the week. There was about 70 people, we broke up in 3 groups and were lead through the woods in the dark by an Arboretum tour guide. The moon was abnormally full, the crickets were out, we didn't see any large animals. the whole experience was different and delightful. I do wish since we didn't see any animals or owls we could have taken the trip with our flash lights on and able to speak so we could have asked questions and hear the guide. But hey, it was a owl prowl, not a night walk. All the pictures were taken without a flash only moon lit, except a few. For more info check The Jacksonville Arboretum.

    Something New: Armageddon Visuals

    3 comments
    I know the issue has been raised about how to provide a forward momentum to the Jacksonville art scene. After yesterday's Art Walk I think it might be inevitable. I had a blast, there was so much good talent, the skateboard show was impressive. I'm glad as a city we were able to put that together, it makes me happy to live in Jacksonville.

    Back to what I was getting at, for a while now I have been printing posters of my own and since moving print equipment into the BBB Warehouse I decided to put together a printshop. The idea is to start printing limited edition screen print posters with local artists and provide a way to make it seen worldwide and purchasable at an affordable price. I also want to start doing free wall murals for anyone who has the space with some of these artists like the ones I did at TSI, The Pearl, and The Pearl second wall. So if you have wall space inside or outside that you would like a mural on let us know.

    Today I put up a new poster by the artist Regret. It's a 19" x 25" limited edition to 100, screen print signed and numbered. For $25 shipped. It's our first print and can be purchased at armageddonvisuals.blogspot.com. In the future the edition will most likely be smaller depending on the image.
