Lines Said in The Great Comet

okay, listen, I was REALLY bored AND THIS TOOK ME 2 HOURS but I did a word count of every character so here it is ( I excluded all the words when ALL and CHORUS were singing so it’s just them individually or like it’s them and 2 other characters singing)

Can You Dig It??? The Warriors 35th Anniversary Mix

Today marks 35 years since the cult classic The Warriors dropped in theaters. This was one of the first movies shot depicting a close description of what gang life was in New York City in the mid to late 70’s. The movie which was picked up by Paramount Pictures and was actually a never suppose to happen. Lawrence Gordon (Producer) and Walter Hill (Director), had a western movie in the works and when it failed to go into production they pitched The Warriors script. Being a huge fan of comic books, Hill had plans to break the movie into chapters with illustrated pages opening each scene. Due to a tight schedule and even tighter budget that idea was shelved and later released on the Ultimate Directors Cut in 2005.

The entire movie was filmed on location in the streets of New York City with some interior scenes done at Astoria Studios. They would shoot from sundown to sunrise. While they shot in the Bronx, people tossed bricks at the crew. Actor Joel Weiss remembers the filming of his scene at Avenue A being canceled because there was a double homicide closeby. For the big meeting with Cyrus at the beginning of the film, Hill wanted real gang members in the scene with off duty police officers also in the crowd so that there would be no trouble. 

The Warriors opened on February 9, 1979 in 670 theaters without advance screenings or a decent promotional campaign and grossed USD $3.5 million on its opening weekend. The following weekend the film was linked to sporadic outbreaks of vandalism and three killings - two in Southern California and one in Boston - involving moviegoers on their way to or from showings. In its sixth week, The Warriors had grossed $16.4 million, well above its estimated $6–7 million budget.

Sol Yurick, whose book was the inspiration for the film expressed his disappointment speculating that it scared some people because “it appeals to the fear of a demonic uprising by lumpen youth”, appealing to many teenagers because it “hits a series of collective fantasies”. President Ronald Reagan was a fan of the film, even calling the film’s lead actor, Michael Beck, to tell him he had screened it at Camp David and enjoyed it.  

The Warriors video game, based on the movie, was released by Rockstar Games on October 17, 2005. Levels 1 through 13 acts as a prequel to the film, creating backstory and elaborating on the characters from the film. Levels 14 through 18 recreates much of the film’s events. Several of the actors from the movie returned to perform the voices for their original characters. Also In 2005, Mezco Toyz released Warriors action figures, including Swan, Cleon, Cochise, Ajax, Luther, and a Baseball Fury.

 In 2009, Dabel Brothers Productions began a five issue comic book adaption of the film and then followed that with a four issue mini series entitled The Warriors: Jail Break which takes place several months after the film’s events.

If you are a cult movie follower or just the everyday movie goer, this flick is a must see masterpiece that captured the feelings of rebellion in NYC during the early days of the drug era.

Brothers who Lyrically Act and Combine Kickin Music Out On Nations (Black Moon - Enta Da Stage 20th Anniversary Mix)

Today is the 20th anniversary of Black Moon’s incredible debut, Enta Da Stage. The Nervous Records-released album was an important album in a year full of very important albums. In the 4th quarter of 1993 (the period between September and the end of the year for you non-industry heads) releases from Wu-Tang Clan, Tribe Called Quest, Das Efx, De La Soul, Erick Sermon were released and hip hop’s gangster rap heavy landscape began to shift back to its gritty, East Coast roots. Enta Da Stage was one of those albums at the center of the gravitational pull back home.

To celebrate this release and the impact this album has we decided to put together a mix together that salutes the amazing production collective responsible of putting together twenty years of Duck Down classics, The Beatminerz.

The Beatminerz are the heart and soul of the Boot Camp Clik sound. Mr. Walt, Evil Dee and Baby Paul are the glue that sonically binds together the different elements that comprise Duck Down movement. Their reign of production both in-house for Duck Down and outside of the crew runs from 1993 all the way through today. It is one of the most heralded runs of a producer contingency. Equivalent to what Dungeon Fam is to the Outkast sound with an impact similar to what The Hitmen were to Bad Boy, - the Beatminerz are to Black Moon, The Boot Camp Clik and the entire Duck Down Records Family.

The Roots: From Trees To Branches [Mixed by @UNITEDCRATES]

Today marks nineteen years since the release of their sophmore album, Do You Want More?!!? Over the last two decades we’ve seen  The Roots grow from small stage shows & open mics in the streets of Philly all the way to headlining their own festival & the Late Night show with Jimmy Fallon.  

As they proceeded to continue to rock the mic, their impact to Hip-Hop was immediate. From the jump, they displayed an expertly mixed combination of lyricism and live musicianship which amazed fans and influenced their peers alike.

We hope today’s reminiscent reflection and tribute of Hip-Hop’s greatest live rap band will help you understand the complexity of seeds planted by The Roots.

Thank You Philly.
