Video of the Day: "Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't"

        In one of the best "Star Trek - DS9" episodes, "In the Pale Moonlight", Cpt. Benjamin Sisko ends the episode with one of the best monologues I've ever heard! The way Avery Brooks goes from indecisive to mournful to rage-filled and finally accepting of the situation is nothing short of astounding. Well played, sir!

"Who He Is & How He Came To Be"

        Amongst the many, many things I love with an unholy passion (among which I count my love of shitty sci-fi movies from the Asylum & badly dubbed toy commercial/anime cartoons) is nerdcore rap & hip-hop. And foremost in that playlist is Adam WarRock (former lawyer-turned-nerdcore rapper Eugene Ahn). Though I have been listening to his awesome work for awhile now, I haven't been able to find out a lot about how he got his start and where he draws his influences from. Then, I stumbled upon this interview video on YouTube where WarRock is being interviewed by Nerd Caliber, an online nerd culture website. He talks about how he got his start (both as a rapper and a nerd) and you even get to see him perform a couple of tracks live at a Boston area comic store.

The Secret Origin of Adam Warrock!

        Seems like a really cool dude! If (and that may be a HUGE if) he ever tours through the Great White North, I highly recommend you go to the show. I'll see you there!
