Why is your boy paying other people to perform for him?
Though unverified accounts of “fake” Doom shows have been swirling for a couple years, the critically beloved rapper usually does justice to his brilliant studio catalog in concert. Schwab, for one, says Doom’s performance on the same stage two years earlier was one of the best he’d seen.
But this guy was a joke.
“I went up to the sound guy about two songs deep and said, ‘No one can hear Doom’s mic.’ He looked at me and said straight-up, ‘I know. His mic’s not on, and that’s not MF Doom.’ “
Having performed only a handful of songs, whoever it was abruptly ended his set and fled the stage; attendees booed and tossed water bottles. Doom’s scheduled Independent show the next night was also canceled, as were the seven remaining dates on his tour.
Even club co-owner Allen Scott doesn’t seem entirely sure what happened. “I watched the show, but I didn’t see him personally,” he says. “He walked [into the building] with his mask on?that’s how he always does it. I can’t say for certain whether it was him or not.”
The concert seems to have inspired a full-scale Internet mutiny among Doom fans. Incensed YouTubers point to clips from his July 29 Rock the Bells show at Randall’s Island as evidence of egregious lip-synching. Fans at his August 12 show in Los Angeles make the same charge? one even put up a Craigslist post headlined, “MF Doom Show Was Fake.” (Few attendees at either gig accuse him of not actually showing up, however.)
Who does MTV have in mind with “Dances from the Hood?”
I was happy to see that a Brown lady was the focal point.
But it was boring and simply hard to watch.
I kept waiting for “something” to happen.
I would rather watch someone GO to the hood and ask people
to do the damn dances.
That sh*t would be hilarious.
The Yonce for Armani.
This sh*t is enough to make you cry on a pay day Friday.
A pregnant woman stabbed another pregnant woman to death at a Long Island homeless shelter where both women were staying with their children, the Suffolk County police said yesterday. The victim?s fetus also died. The two women were eight months pregnant, and had been quarreling for some time, but it was unclear why, according to the police.
Bob Morris, of the Times is JUST as neurotic as I am.
He talks about being shook, and hiding out because he has been invited to an
island in New England and he fears running into members of the offended parties.
Checking a reservations list, I was relieved to find myself in the clear. But later, getting an ice cream on the island?s small village green felt like being in highly exclusive enemy terrain, and I walked with head down and turned in fear from each passing station wagon.
In the church thrift store where space is tight (and the clothes irresistible) I hid behind racks with my heart pounding as each shopper entered.
?Why is the idea of a confrontation so upsetting to you?? my host asked.
I?m not sure. Clearly, issues remain unresolved, many because of my own guilt. But who doesn?t sometimes mortally fear the prospect of running into someone? You didn?t return a call or read a manuscript. You didn?t accept an invitation to be a friend on Friendster. A romance or business combusted. You wrote something on your blog that offended.[priceless]. Someone stole your client.
