Until My Life's Gone

Found a link to a store that is selling a digitized version of the Until My Life's Gone 12" that CE / Arc The Finger put out in 2006. First, when are they sending us a check, and second, why in the world would they use this old picture of the crew in Philly that they found on LastFM?:

Here's the artwork that Mil designed. I found it online, courtesy of

You can hear samples HERE. Sounds like a terrible rip, if anyone wants this, I have much better versions of these songs in the archives that I will be happy to post for free. For now, if you want to hear I Feel Free feat H20 (aka Kid Captain Koolout), it's the second song on the player on CE's Official Site. HOLLER!

More wise words...

There is an image here with words on it.

Wise words...

"In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present."

Atlanta gets shut down...

The view from my driveway this morning...

It's getting ready to sleet all day, after a night of majestic snow. Atlanta is shut down already...this might get ugly, we are not prepared for this.

Instead of driving around, I recommend that all of us Atliens (and anyone else caught in this winter storm) do the following: sit back, make a little drink of your favorite whisky/scotch on the rocks, twist your favorite flavor, and listen to the most apropos album I can think of, courtesy of one of my favorite music blogs (until someone politely asks them to take it down and leave a purchase link in it's place):

Diamond D + CE album?

According to our buddy Chad Radford over at the Creative Loafing, Diamond D is producing Collective Efforts' entire new album. What is strange is that it's in the middle of an article about clubs that closed in Atlanta, and kind of comes out of nowhere. Much love to Chad for the shout, we'll take it where we can get it.

But just for the record, so far the plan is just to release an EP with Diamond...but with 6 epic tracks, and the legendary producer himself on the beats, it feels like an album. Mil and I have been working for a while on our last couple verses (we wanted to feel like what we were offering this particular project was some of our best work to date). I am very proud of we have so far, and I'd say we are a good 3/4 of the way done, so I will keep you posted with any updates - and who knows, I might even give you some previews as they get mastered...

I think it's hilarious that the picture on the wikipedia page for Diamond D is the same picture as above with Mil cut out.

Peace, fam, thanks for checkin' in...
