Holla, MF Doom, if you're reading this blog...
class=img_thumbleft>From my DangerDoom review in today's Seattle Weekly: "Is MF Doom reading me? Addled by the brain-spam of an age that sells everything, including the words in this sentence, I wrote last year in Minneapolis's City Pages, 'Fans love Doom precisely because, like the Cartoon Network's Aqua Teen Hunger Force , he represents the only Dada that makes any sense in the communications age--the kind that makes no sense at all, and communicates nothing.' I added, rhetorically, 'No, he will not be right back after these important messages.' Doom's answer comes here, amid an album-length collaboration with Aqua Teen's creators at Adult Swim and producer Danger Mouse , the guy who combined the Beatles' White Album and Jay-Z's The Black Album into 2004's The Grey Album : 'Now we'll be right back after these messages,' rasps the masked rapper. 'Fellas grab your nut sack, chicks squeeze your breastesses.'" The rest of the review is here . Background: Check out all my MF Doom articles and cartoons, the DangerDoom Myspace page , MF Doom Myspace page , and Scholtes Myspace page . Oh, and here's Michaelangelo Matos's review in City Pages (we traded places for a week!). And my Halloween costume (take a wild guess).
