Frontin’ A Lot

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

I had the opportunity this past Wednesday to enjoy a bit of a guilty pleasure. No, it isn’t gambling or chocolate. It just happens to be Nerdcore. I’ve been a fan of a couple of prominent nerdcore hip hop artists for a while now, so when I got the chance to see one of my favorites live (courtesy of Ghostfreehood, who booked the show) I went well out of my way to get my nerd on.

MC Frontalot has been someone I’ve wanted to see live for a while now. I’ve been a fan of hip hop since I was a kid and lately it’s taken something unique about an artist’s sound to get me even remotely interested in them. There’s a lot of generic hip hop out there (given a ridiculing by MC Lars‘ song Generic Crunk Rap), and I’m not a fan of a lot of it. Frontalot brings some funk/soul grooves to his sound that complements the flow of his rhymes.

Below is a sample, but check here to see the whole gallery of shots I took of the show.

Frontalot Saves Vs. Poison

Bad habits are hard to break. Shoot, habits PERIOD are hard to break. Some are harder than others, and I hear smoking’s just about the top of the list. Wouldn’t know personally, as I’ve never smoked. Any bad habit I HAVE quit, I’ve generally done cold turkey. Easier for me to not do it than to ween. I’m not a weener.

This said, perhaps if I had some awesomely nerdy and fun gaming mechanic for weeing myself off an addiction. What’s that? MC Frontalot has devised JUST such a mechanic? Sweet crap nugget! That’s so convenient.

Detailed in THIS BLOG POST, MC Frontalot notes his system for quitting smoking designed with a hardcore pen and paper gamer’s sensibilities in mind. So whether you’re trying to quit smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, slapping random children, or anything at all just have a d20 with you and remember to roll high. Nat 20’s all up in this business.
