Frustrated at Work? Here's a "Brick in Yo Face"

Like Kermit the Snitch, it's not my business if you enjoy cocaine. I think it's the most ridiculous drug of all because I associate it with the 1980s, which was easily the silliest decade I've lived through.

But I recognize there are people in this world who use it and since there is a demand, there are suppliers. And though these persons are law-breakers, home-wreckers and accomplices to terrorism, at least some of them probably listen to music that inspires them to be the best at being the worst.

And so because of this...Stitches.

If you've been walled up away from the world, like Fortunato in that one Poe story -- who actually did get a brick in his face -- you may have missed the Miami rapper's video for "Brick In Yo Face." In case you haven't seen it, here's what you need to know:

Lotus Effect Drops Insane Music Video About the End of Creation

totality2.jpg
Lotus Effect is one of those bands that every time I think they've disappeared they come screaming back to life with something absolutely out of this world. When you're discussing the music video they just released for the song "Totality", that sentiment is the literal truth.

It's arguably the most visually ambitious music video ever shot by a local Houston band, with special effects that rival many big budget efforts that you'd normally see on A-level artists. All that was done by singer Dre Gile over the course of an agonizing seven months.

"A lot of bands, when they want to go low budget, they'll just film a house party or something," said Giles in a brief interview over the phone. "We decided to film ourselves performing in front of a green screen and just see where our imagination took us."

Plus, Jason Voorhees tries to turn his life around and we go to outer space in a cardboard rocket ship. It's all good this week.

A Sweet Story About Phil Collins and the Ultimate Warrior (R.I.P.)

warriorcollins.jpg
Days after he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, Warrior, better known as the wrestling phenom the Ultimate Warrior, collapsed on the sidewalk outside his Arizona hotel room Wednesday. Despite being rushed to the hospital, he was pronounced dead on arrival of as yet unknown causes. The 54-year-old retired champion is survived by his wife Dana and two daughters.

At first I was having a hard time mourning the passing of the man born James Brian Hellwig. At one time the Ultimate Warrior was, bar none, my favorite wrestler. I was just nine years old when the Warrior managed to do the unthinkable and wrest the WWF Championship belt away from the legendary Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI. For me it was the greatest match ever, a meeting of two unstoppable yet benevolent titans in a contest of pure skill and power, not some ham-fisted storyline involving good and evil.

There are no words to describe Warrior's entrance. That simple rock theme, his sprint to the ring, the ropes-shaking -- no one had ever done anything like it before. He was a monster the likes of which wouldn't be seen again until Bill Goldberg.

Then, just like that, he was gone, and the man who replaced him was very different.
