1. So in case you haven't noticed, I'm writing for Culture Bully now, and this blog is taking a back seat. I'll still post here if I feel like making fun of someone, bigging myself up or ranting about the Animaniacs or whatever, but serious "writing" will be over there for now. It's a great team, and as far as music blogs go I think we have one of the better ones. Check it out-- daily updates.
2. Yet another glowingly positive review of the new album, "EL GUANTE'S HAUNTED STUDIO APARTMENT." This one is courtesy of Rift Magazine: "Slamming his way through each beat, literally, is the slam-artist and lyrical slaughter-house known as El Guante with his potent yet poetic new album..." Click the link for more. It's a little... odd in terms of the writing, but I can't complain-- they liked the album.
3. Lots and lots of shows all over the Midwest coming up, including the National Poetry Slam and some other big festival shows and stuff like that. Keep checking the MySpace for calendar updates.
4. For those of you who don't use ITunes, the album is on CDBaby now. Here's the link. It's also in a bunch of Twin Cities record shops. If you can get a physical copy, do it. The artwork is cool.
