Today … Deborah Harry is SEVENTY … YEARS OLD..

blondieWE love you Debbie… you are perfection .. let’s celebrate the life of the Blondie frontman, B-girl, (YESS B-GIRL and we can debate this all day nuugga..) and all around rock goddess today … Here’s to you Ms. Harry  Your awesomeness has not been wasted on us. Nobody has filled her shoes yet and please don’t come over here talmbout Gwen Stefani… Gwen is cool but this here IS DEBBIE DAMNIT. She has left her footprint firmly planted in the foundations of everything from art to music. blondie01We will not even try to break down how many trends she has mothered.  Hell Deborah was  A PLAYBOY BUNNY goshdarnit. I appreciate the fact too that Debbie is simiply growing older, she is not running around here with DDD titties, a snatched grill overdoing it.  Note to Madonna , although you are not quite 70 yet, BISH THIS IS HOW TO DO IT.  She is a powerhouse of a woman then , now and forever. She taught me to “Rip her to Shreds” and also informed me that the “Tide is High” . so covet your seat in the celestial landscape woman. We are forever  inspired… HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY DEBORAH HARRY  sidenote: Aren’t she and Chris Stein just the ultimate in relationship GOALS OMG..

That 3 Girl Classic Situation PART 1.. MADAME X *FLASHBACK FRIDAY*

Original Post date .. Feb/ 2012

This post is an ode to the 3 girl groups of my choice.. SO.. let’s serve up a little VINTAGE..  Madame X..  AND LATER..  some Vanity 6.. (I am an OG .. I DON’T FUCK WITH APPOLONIA 6) well i did like A MILLION MILES but that was the BRENDA OF IT ALL ..LOL..anyway class today’s lesson is.. about :MADAME X

.Madame X released “Just That Type of Girl“, their first single from the self titled album Madame X on Atlantic Records in the late 80s. “Just That Type of Girl”, quickly climbed the dance and R&B Charts to #4 Billboard. The group’s producer, Bernadette Cooper from the Solar/MCA group Klymaxx, organized the group as she and the Madame X members envisioned the group’s concept. The Klymaxx sound heard on such hits as “The Men All Pause” and “Meeting In The Ladies Room” was blended with Madame X’s music and fashion personas to create a brand new sound. Group members, Iris Parker, Valerie Victoria and Alisa Randolph brought with them artful inspiration and vintage sass, similiar to what you may have though of Labelle in their eclectic hey day.. , their bold fashion and mysticism. Another essential element in the group’s sound and style is their shared love for the music of artists like Prince, Parliament-Funkadelic, Sly and The Family Stone and Grace Jones. Passing up their opportunity to sign to Solar Records, Madame X was snapped up by Sylvia Rhone, who headed the Atlantic Records’ R&B division. When Madame X debuted their imagery was ground-breaking and they influenced the artistic standards in the R&B and Hip-Hop scene. Following up the release of Just That Type of Girl, they released the singles, “I Wonder” and “I Want Your Body” as well as the title tracks for motion pictures such as “Action Jackson” starring Sharon Stone and Vanity. Madame X’s songs continue to be played and sampled, most famously on Michael Jackson’s hit song “Keep It In The Closet”. Original CDs are cult-collected(TRANSLATION: hard to fucking find)

Sadly Alisa Marie Randolph succumbed to breast cancer in 05.. they say she remained beautiful til the bitter end.. 😦

Classic joints from these ladies….  Cherries in the Snow, I Wonder, Just that Type of Girl, Madame X, Marry Me, shoot ,  me and my teenage homegirls used to LOVE THEM

So If you remember.. take this trip back in time with us .. when female performers  were actually DOPE.. and not ALLL ABOUT ASS..  and if you don’t remember.. that’s what Auntie Beejay is here for.. “See you gon’ learn today” …

For the love of CHINOOOOOOO..

Deftones vintagePosting this for sis.. Chino Moreno is her husband IN HER HEAD.. (you know that fool is happily married B) HAHAH..nah but she really loves Deftones as do I and of course they have been staples in the skate community since day one.. I hope you guys went out and got ‘Koi No Yokan’… it’s really pretty epic.. Check out Romantic Dream and this epic Jason Park situation.. Lowkey looks like a Lakai ad..LOL..

About the new video, Moreno said this to RedBull.com/Music writer Hardeep Phull:

“When we started this record cycle, we decided that we didn’t want to make any videos whatsoever. They’re not much fun to make and they usually turn out pretty corny. But this was an idea that we were interested in because we’re all very keen skateboarders and we like the idea of marrying one of our songs to someone as talented as Jason Park.”

chanos sabbath sign

Chano’s Restaurant across from The Sports Arena showing love to the KINGS..

Welcome back Stoners.. how have you all  been.. what have you been up to.. SuperbbNess and I have been chillin.. you know.. doing things like moving to different cities , tokin, and staying out of trouble LOL.. We also have been catching random performances and staying well satiated within the art and film communities during  our absence..   If you can tell by now we are slowly undergoing changes starting with .. the name change.. 420Bamboobanga.com is the new joint.  We did this because we really want to cement our ties within the cannabis communities and felt it might be better to put THAT 420 at the forefront nymean LOL.. The page will go through alot more changes before this month is over but bear with us.     We will holler at you all about all of those QUESTS AND SITUATIONS at another time.. FOR NOW..let’s just enjoy the reunion  HA.. .. BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST… Guess what.. i went to see BLACK SABBATH BITCHES.. sure did .. Sabbath came to LA, Sept 3 and showed out , here at the Sports Arena, .. . I was so excited to find that the show was in the hood.. I live right up the street from The Sports Arena , so it was almost kismet THAT I BE IN THE HOUSE ..    Nak and I got our tickets pre sale months ago because IT WAS NOT A GAME. It was really important to catch these guys this go round because let’s face it, they are up there and Tony is fighting cancer.  I am not saying that to say that anyone is on the verge of death, merely stating the fact that these cats might not want to be touring nor be able to do so in like a few years… Take a trip with me to the show real quick .. after the jump…….   stagebowsabbath

RIP .. SUGARFOOT.. NOW you are truly FREE…

ohioplayershoneyWe want to send our most heartfelt condolences out to the family and friends of Mr. Leroy ” SugarFoot “ Bonner, frontman and guitarist for the illustrious OHIO PLAYERS, also known as...” The Ohio Untouchables”. Mr. Bonner coined a vocal situation that would later be used by everyone from Roger Troutman to Larry Blackmon… He passed away at that age of 70 but had been touring all year and still had dates to fulfill in 2013.  It is good he passed doing what he was born to do.  At press time, there are still no details as to how he died but keep it here as we will be following this story and updating accordingly.  We  actually found out via Dawn Silva’s (Original Bride of Funkenstein’s) facebook page.

He was a beast to watch live and a survivor off of the stage..  The Ohio ohio-players-1975-diamond-far-left2-300x249Players paved the way for most of the midwest funk of the 70’s and 80’s Soul eras respectively.  Who can remember his vocals on joints like ““I Wanna Be Free”, “Skintight”, HELL, and Love Rollercoaster to name a few.  TVONE’s award winning docu-series aired an excellent  episode of “UNSUNG” featuring THE OHIO PLAYERS in 2011.  Check their schedule because I am sure they will be rebroadcasting it in commemoration of a brotha , that according to Grandma on FUNKY WORM “was funkier than 9 cans of shaving powder” LOL.. We will miss you and your EPIC FRO Mr. Bonner..

Sit back and relax and listen to some of the funk provided by our FUNK FOREFATHERS..

LOVE ROLLERCOASTER
