Not Safe For Anywhere

His Satanic Majesty Schaffer the Darklord has a brand new video. It's for his lyrical exercise in overindulgence known as "The Bender."

Now, for those of you saying "Oh Z., I totally saw that video when Schaffer including it in his vidcast last year." I say, hold the phone, kid – this is a brand new production of the Manslaughterer classic. Also, don't back-sass me.

Yeah, you heard me.

Directed by Burke Heffner and featuring the talents of countless NYC burlesque stars (and my main Ghostbusting man Nelson Lugo), this bad boy is highly offensive and shouldn't be viewed by anyone ever. But that's not gonna stop you. On account of your admirable boldness. 

Obviously this joint glorifies sexual promiscuity and drug abuse and guyliner – y'know, because it's another track from a man whose claim to fame is humping his own clone – and even in its sanitized state it's still pretty raw. So maybe try not to watch it when the bossman is about.

If, however, you wish to support the unbridled American arts by viewing the original, uncensored cut, you can do so at

You filthy little monkey you!

Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens and Shit Like That

"Oh balls!"
The crossover into early December is typically when we bloggers put on the cruise control. It's all about gift list this and top ten that, but I (sadly) don't have that luxury.

This year, as in holiday seasons past, I am helming GeekDad's 12 Days of Geekmas giveaway, which means I'm doing even more writing and podcasting than usual. Still, I'm taking it as a personal challenge not to let Hipster, please! fall by the wayside as a result of my professional responsibilities.

While I can't promise an abundance of posts or anything on par with the kind of mega-contest we're hosting over GeekDad-way, I do pledge to you that I'll be using this month to spotlight my favorite artists, tracks and albums of 2010.

Highlights include an interview with one of my favorite hip-hop crews, a feature piece on the south's preeminent geek rockers and, of course, my yearly nerdcore wrap-up. And along the way you'll also get the requisite pair of December podcasts.

You're very much encouraged to share your own picks for 2010's superlative nerdery. Y'know, the kinds of things you remember so that you don't… feel… so bad?

Wow, I extended that Sound of Music thing to an unhealthy level, didn't I?
