More ODWFKTA

Couple days ago we -and the rest of the internet- posted about Odd Future’s climb to fame. While a lot of people know ODWFKTA as the 18 year olds who rap about cocaine and rape the group contains some suprising diversity, most notable of which is Frank Ocean. Their website decsribes his album as:

“Smooth Ass Music About Bitches, Relationships And Being A Rich Young Nigga…But In A Swagged Out Way”.

He’s kinda got that Drake when he sings vibe going on. This guy can definitely sing better then Drake though. Check him out:

Enjoy! And if you haven’t liked our facebook page please check that thing out, there’s pictures of beautiful people in beautiful clothes.

Adult Wii Games and Coke Truck fills me with Glee (except only the truck)

Wow. WOW. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. I can’t even believe this. Who would – Where do you – When did – just look at it.

Right? RIGHT? THIS HAS BEEN APPROVED FOR TWELVE YEAR OLDS. Seriously, I’m not some big prude who thinks “oh no this will corrupt our children into a generation of sexual deviants,” but this is just a weird idea in general. I can understand teens and young adults using this with the hope of moving from virtual to reality at a party or something, but imagine you had a a brother/sister in grade 6 and you bought this for them. I don’t even care if my little brother goes around humping his friends in his own time, in fact kudos to him if that’s the case, but there’s something just strange about walking into my living room to find him and his friends (who probably just figured out that “Wizard’s Sleeve” is not a Harry Potter reference) spanking, dry humping, and strip teasing like I might at the club.

And you know that kids don’t care about ratings. Sometimes you can stop a 10 year old from playing games that are rated M for mature, but if you tell your kid that they can’t play a game, not because it’s too violent or scary, but because you have to hit someone else on the butt, they’re going to take that pent up repression and do drugs or get pregnant or whatever else 10 year olds do now. And those are just 10 year olds for god’s sake. Forget grade 6 now you’ve got kids in grade 4 doing the dirty.

Well enough about that, lets move onto some happy things. For the Glee fans out there, the show is coming out with two ORIGINAL songs, which I think is pretty cool. After two seasons of covers (most of which I think were improvements or at least comparable to the original), the show is going to take its all-star cast and take the next big-step into song writing. In fact, the songs have actually been leaked as singles despite the episode not having come out yet.

SPOILERS SPOILERS BEWARE OF SPOILERS IF YOU ARE A DIE HARD THIS MIGHT RUIN EVERYTHING FOR YOU SPOILERS

(Personally I like the first one better and think it’s really catchy, but decide for yourself)

The final thing that perked my interest is this neat Coke campaign. As a product, I’ve always liked Coke way more than Pepsi because of these cute, creative ads they make, compared to the bland Pepsi ones that usually just bash Coke (although as companies, I’ve heard sketchy things about Coke). I feel fairly confident that at least one of these happened for real and the whole event was filmed with a hidden camera.

You can check out other similar ones in related videos.

That’s everything folks. To sum up this post, Glee looks good, Coke is fun (the drink), and don’t spank your kids more than you have to.

GLOBAL RAP + HOMO DANCE

Hey guys, it’s David here!

We’ve been pretty busy this week relaunching  Thousand Years Apparel on Facebook (‘Like’ us here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Thousand-Years-Apparel/201845006493927), taking model pictures of our new Spring 2011 line, updating our website (www.thousandyears.ca), and repping TYA in Toronto.

Here's what didn't make the cut.

But here’s what I really do while procrastinating from doing my school work during ‘Reading’ week.

After Mark’s earlier post about Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, I wondered what kind of rap the rest of the world was putting out. Here’s what I encountered:

FRANCE:

Once I saw The Game on a French rap track, I had to listen to this.

JAPAN:

This song is strangely addicting, even though I don’t understand a word.

POLAND:

Some people are trying too hard here ^

TAIWAN:

His name is MC Hot Dog. That should be enough to warrant a listen.

Anyways that’s all for today, I really should get back to doing some homework. (Nah….)
Feel free to send us a message, hit up our Facebook Page, our blog, our website – we got your t-shirt fix.

EDIT: IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED ANY OF THE VIDEOS ABOVE IT DOESN’T MATTER. WATCH THIS ONE!!!!!

OFWGKTA

Keeping up with what Surinder was writing about yesterday a friend of mine put me on to this group from California. If you thought it was awesome that six 18 year olds could start a clothing company than behold Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, or abbreviated OFWGKTA. This 11 person group are all around our age and are making a big impact in the rap scene. They recently had their TV debut on the Jimmy Fallon show which you can check out here.

These guys have been described as lo-fi and horrorcore but you’re probably better off just watching for yourself:

Not really for everybody but definitely a group to keep an eye on in the future. If you wanna download their mixtapes you can check out their site.

In TYA news the new shirts are finally out and model photos are making their way to the internet very soon. If you’d like a shirt send us an email with your order. In the meantime hopefully this can tide you over:

Not bad eh?

❤ Mark

EDIT: This song is really good and also more accessible:

Welcome To Hip Hop Toronto

Hey there T.OOOOOOOOOO,

Now, most people think that the only proper hip hop to come out of Toronto is our boy Drizzy Drake. Yeah, he’s from our city, and yeah he carries us wherever he goes, but the fact is, he’s gone. SO, does that mean Hip Hop’s missing in Toronto? I thought so, and then I was reacquainted with our dear friends at King of the Dot.

King of the Dot is the biggest, most recognized league of Hip Hop battles in all of Canada, with divisions in every major city across the nation. From rap battles, to beatboxing battles, to the star-making producer battles, these guys cover everything there is in Hip Hop 101.

Check out the title rap-battle match that took place a little while ago between Bender from St. Catherine, and Arcane reppin’ the 905:

If you’re looking for other battles, say you’re beatboxing fan, or want to see some producers in action, check them out at:

Toronto, we still do it big. And TYA is keeping up.We’re going hard all week in Toronto, so drop us an email, give us a call, send us a fb message, TWEET us, we’ll answer, and we’ll keep you fresh to death, and most definitely no less.

Stay Tuned, we’re getting ready to take things to a whole new level.

Much Love,

Surinder Jaidka

The Rape of Persephone

Sorry for our absence once again! I’ve been busy studying for my Ancient Greece and Latin midterms, but I just now wanted to show David a picture of the Eurymedon Vase which I learned about in class, and the first link was The LOLiad, this legitimately  hilarious website of LOL-CLASSICS pictures.

Anyway, here’s that Eurymedon Vase – they really didn’t have to think all too hard to caption this one:

…so that’s my university education!

Peace, love, and good luck on midterms! We’ll see you all during reading week.
